In essay 4 we are going to talk  about gender issue in our mind. It is relate closely to our own experience, family and culture. In China, women’s traditional image is housewife like many other country it is being criticized nowadays. My mom is a housewife, she abandon her job after my birth and spend all her time on doing housework and taking care of me. Although she never seems tired, I find her feel regret about gave up her job and lose her own life. She always miss the days when she study in university and began to work. It make sense that women can take care of baby better but also it is unfair for  only women sacrifice for family and we should pay attention to those stereotype. Most of the people do not have religious faith in  my country, so do I. Therefore, my opinions to those gender issue are most influenced by my family and articles and movies about the topics.

Gender roles are defined by different features between female and male but it have inequality in most marriage because women do much more contribution in family.

Women are more careful and proficiency in house work and taking care of baby ,but it does not mean they should contribute more than men in families and lose their own career. I think stereotype of women that they should

In China, there are a lot of children stay with their parents for a long time. People think it is normal if they have jobs, but those guy who stay at home all day long and do nothing will be looked down. It is good in some ways because boomerang kids can avoid many financial problem and easily get help from their parents. It can help children grow up instead of preventing it in many cases. Also, they can help their parents do some chores and physical work. I think boomerang students are becoming more and more normal in nowadays and of exception.

In the movie “Alien”, women are portrayed liked a brave, calm and a valiant image in the movie. Unlike other fiction or action movie, it’s leading actor is a women instead of some unbeatable male hero. She is not the strongest in the spaceship but she has the strongest mental power and the only person who eliminate the alien and survived. This movie left a deep impression because its obvious contrast with other movies. I like this movie because it is different from the rest and make me find out that there are stereotypes of women in other movies and TV shows. By connecting with those opinions we learned this week, I think although there are differences in nature between two genders, women do not get enough respect in Tv shows and movies.

There are many misunderstanding of computer science in common sense. For example, the main part of computer science is not just typing code which is like most of people thinking.

Peter and Matti(2017) noted that “CS = programming. The idea that programming is the core activity of computer science is easy to accept and yet it is only partly true. Computing professionals are expected to be able to program. But computing professionals engage in many other important activities such as designing software and hardware systems, networks, databases, and applications” (pp.31-33).

They clearly explained that the final goal of CS courses is make you have the ability of programing, but it include all kinds of knowledge and practicing in CS learning, like other relative skills of computer and internet.
