I am taking a Businees in Communications course & the main objective of the class will focus on communications within careers, relationships, the work place, etc. Communication can be both verbal & nonverbal. Appearance and sex are both non communicative factors that sometimes influence gender roles and or stereotypes.
Our first major assignment was to create an AIDA letter to a government official, corporation, editorial staff, the school campus, and or to someone in the local community regarding an issue. I decided to address an issue within my community.
An AIDA letter is to get the ATTENTION, spark INTEREST, state what you DESIRE, and the ACTION that should be taken.
- ATTENTION – What used to be a quiet neighborhood now has youngins’ in rice rockets racing up & down my block filled with young children, elderly people, etc. They run stop signs & constantly disrupt the neighborhood at all hours of the day with their racket of a motor. One almost rammed my door closed while I was grabbing groceries. They park their cars in the middle of the street, oblivious to vehicle traffic.
- INTEREST – Laws are being broken, ignoring the issue will only invite others to join in. Someone can get run over, killed, injured.
- DESIRE/ACTION – Install speed bumps to slow them down, or get police to patrol the area.
That is an overview of my letter & topic.
So, my professor commented that girls/women aren’t into the “car life” like boys/men would be. Being a female automatically throws me into the category of being ignorant or uninterested about cars. My appearance gives off being high maintenance – a fashionista, nails & hair done, enough said. When truth is I am the best of both worlds. I love cars & the things that you can do to them. I have my car done up with tinted windows, a set of rims & added a little base to my music however, I haven’t changed my exhaust and decide to race down neighborhood roads and ignore stop signs! There are things and actions that are done tastefully & others that are just tacky. Not for nothing but their cars sound like motors gone wrong! I ask about cars & I like to be informed about every little detail & problem when it comes to my car. If I could go back to high school & attend BOCES I would definitely go into auto body & mechanics. Well maybe in my next life 😉
I guess if being a male testosterone driven individual means to drive a honda civic from the 90`s, change the exhaust, have a busted muffler, tinted windows, stolen rims, dropped car an inch or two, Kenwood speaker system, speed/race, run stop signs, terrorize my neighbors, park my car in the middle of the road – then yes I guess I am happy to be a female. Lmao. Judge me!
Well enough about cars and stereotypes, I need to go get my nails done! Hahaha ❤
