I am looking about 10 short questions in the public survey. I will use the pictures from the magazines, or from the website, I will give credits to the pictures I used for the survey. In the survey, I will announce myself as students from QC college, sociology major students, and this survey is only using for academic school use only, all information will be confidential and kept in privacy. I am looking forward to know what other people thought about beauty and what the qualifications of beauty as to be are. In the survey the interviewees are free to asking questions and provide their commons in the related topics. last, All the surveys are held in voluntary and the interviewees are able to stop the survey if they are not willing to . the demographic for the survey is based on sex/ gender, age, and ethnicity.

coffee: might be a great topic for my final proposal, its pretty new and special since I’m interesting in coffee int eh same time. for my research, i will focus on the demographic of gender, age and race of people. and the history of coffee, the processing and how coffee has become to  our every-day’s needs, no matter in what age you are. we just so addicted to coffee.

but since my first thought of final proposal was about the different sex/gender view on beauty, so i haven’t decide what i am going to write yet, but i will made up my mind soon, and post my final proposal on the blog before its due.

final proposal:

For the final project, I am looking for beauty in the media. since ever, female and male are bombarded by the ever changing image of beauty in the magazines, T.V shows, advertisements, and etc. we are making stereotype into what is real beauty and based on what we have saw in the media.
While, the more we are participate into media’s influences, we are become stereotype about beauty and limited into certain ranges of being skinny, curvy, long hair, white teeth, blond hair, and etc. we do see the kinds of women from the media, but it does not meant they are beautiful to everyone. People might be influenced by the media’s brainwashes, but we should not comparing reality people to those showed in media. Also, we should not be shame of how we are look like, fat or skinny, tall or short, blond or black. Beauty should not be limited in certain conditions, it should be very free and variety of being beauty as what we think is to be. i can have short hair, darker skin tone and 5 feet tall, don’t have skinny body figure, I can still be confidence about myself and believe that I am pretty. Pretty does not have to be admitted by other people, it’s your esteem of how you view you self as beautiful or not. We are all born into individual and no should looking alike and same tall, same weight and share the same beauty. Every one of us is beautiful in differently, because we are human and we are born into different as others.
Therefore, in the project I am looking for pictures from the popular feminine magazines and online searches for the pictures from the popular T.V shows or pictures of popular celebrities. I will use these pictures on my field work and to gain information from the interviewees. I am looking forward on how people think about themselves and how they think about beauty is to them.
