Governments are expendable / ··cultures are irreplaceable.
Example of Gender bias #177:
It's quite noticeable: whenever the media gives recognition to famous female celebrities, strong emphasis is placed upon her gender. For example: when Beyonce appears in television interviews, she's primarily billed as a "Strong, intellegent woman". She's labeled as being "modern", "independent". And, she makes a statement for women everywhere. These types of anthems represent another example of gender inequaltiy. Plus, consider how many times this same message is reached. Essentially, each female viewer is touched and comforted. And, it serves as an inspiration for her.
Thousands of famous women receive recognition primarily based on her gender. The goal is to unify women. Whether it pertains to actresses, female musicians, news reporters, business Women, athletes, or female politicians. Every woman comes together as one singular entity.
The same Broken-Record has played its course countless times. The three artists below have received more than their fair-share of Woman's Pride. While, male celebrities are never given this type of recognition.
It's interesting to mention that such Double-Standards have existed for over-a-century. In the 1940's, female welders were given the same status as War Heroes. In the 1960's, any woman who chose an occupation was lionized for her efforts. And, in the 1980's, female military personel made a bold statement for women everywhere.
In other words : Women receive extra-recognition for everything they do. And every achievement made. It's almost as if, they're teasing & taunting the male bystander. SO-to-speak, she's rubbing our noses into it. .
Singer, Performer: Beyonce
recording artist: Pink.
Rapper, Model, actress: Queen Latifah
It also leads to speculate the outrage people would feel, if this same type of gender-orientated recognition was given to men. Obviously, this is never the case. Every famous male sees himself as an individual.
Or, perhaps, he's part of a broader scheme. Perhaps, a male scientist looks upon the achievements of humanity.
It must be refreshing for women. Since she's completely immune to the same degree of agitation which every male experiences. How many times have feamous ladies trounced the theme of "Woman Power"???
Adolescent boys are faced with these demoralizing messages. While, girls are spared this indignity.

A few Closing Thoughts
Beyond the issue of "Hollywood Actresses", Let's apply the overall message to our personal lives.
Do you remember the girl at school who won the Spelling Bee championship ? Or, the girl who could beat you at Arm Wrestling ? Was there a girl in your neighborhood who could run faster than you ? Or, What about the time, a 14 year old girl Won the National Video Game Tournament ????
In all the described cases, the incident was grossly inflated. Usually to the point where people tried to make life difficult for the boy. This is especially important during the early development years.
Plus, we should consider that girls often choose to compete against boys in whichever category she best excels. For Example: she might have limited skills in basketball, mechanics, or billiards. But, if she's a better skiier, this is where she promptly choses to compete against a male advesary.
Now, did you know: Instructors in Self-defence classes will deliberately allow girls to spar against boys who are vastly less skilled. While, she is always given the option to avoid competition against a superior foe.
Does this sound familiar?? essentially, she's spared the indignity of embarrassment.
