Case Study Fairy tales are loved by people of all ages For many young children fairy tales may be the first type of stories that they hear They are probably passed down from generation to generation with each one hearing them as a child Since fairy tales start with once upon a time there is no set time in the past or present This way these stories can go on forever As long as people keep telling the fairy tales they can keep being retold Fairy tales were made for entertainment for young kids and did not mean any harm to them Over the years many people have argued that the fairy tales have negative effects on children One negative argument is that fairy tales teach kids gender roles As for the role of women kids can get the wrong idea Some women wait for the handsome princess to rescue them The queen in Snow White just wanted to be the most beautiful women and nothing more In most fairy tales all of the women are skinny and pretty When young girls see these things they think they have to be like that when they get older Many people thing this can lead to eating disorders and other problems in young girls Some fairy tales can show the image of girls working and having to clean the house or be maids This can cause kids to stereotype characters Stereotypes are not just in the womens case though They happen for men too Many men in fairy tales are big and strong with big muscles They are seen to go out and be the hero and take care of problems Personally I think women get stereotyped more often then men do Think about all of the fairy tales you have heard or read in your life How many of them did not end with a happy ending Almost every fairy tale
