Part TwoToday, only 16 percent of females believe that “females are treated equally and not as objects or property.” However, nearly 50 percent of males believe this statement to be true. There is a massive disparity with the beliefs of this statement between males and females. I believe there is a big gap between the two genders because this statement doesn’t directly affect males, where it directly affects females. Studies show that if something doesn’t directly affect you then you don’t care about it as much or at all. This explains why many males think that women are treated equally. Personally, I fall on the side that females aren’t treated equally and as objects and property. This is because I have experienced friends who have had males only look at them for their body. Also, males have looked at me as less of a person or not as strong because I am a girl. Because I have been personally affected, whereas many males haven’t, I believe this statement is false and this is why many men believe this statement is true.
