Target
Groups

Targeted
specifically towards young boys and girls.

Although, everyone is free to watch this documentary,
it was targeted specifically towards young girls and boys because of how
easily they are influenced and the maturation of their brains. The media
causes young girls to focus only on their appearance, leading them to fall
behind on their education and lack motivation when seeking jobs that
guarantee someone power. Young boys are often left emotionally constipated by
media after being shown that it is considered submissive and unmanly to show
emotion.
