Twitter is a great source for news and memes. You can follow whoever you want and see the funny, serious, or just random things they post. It is a great way to connect with other people, share your thoughts and opinions, or just talk about your life. However, social media like Twitter can be used in a very dangerous and harmful way.
Twitter can be very political. When Trump was running for president, people were campaigning for women to lose their right to vote, in order to help Trump get into office. A lot of men believe that women do not understand politics because they are not smart enough, and these type of men fueled this campaign. It is very harmful to women to post things like this, as they are being displayed as less than human. It is a right to vote, and to take that away from women would be like telling them that they are not people, rather objects for men.
These posts are examples of harmful gender roles. It shows that gender roles are still prominent today, and that there are people that still believe that women are no more than baby makers and house wives, and focus on girly things, such as doing their hair, makeup, and nails. This is harmful ideology because it oppresses women and stops them from feeling confident enough to pursue whatever career they want to, and tells them that they are no more than a housewife.
