Madelyn WoodRandall FederickEnglish 102-030July 13 2022Pop culture is subconsciously compared to an individual’s own life. Modern literatureand films frequently feature couples whose relationships are praised and idolized by the public.The basic fact that these relationships are toxic and abusive is what everyone chooses to ignore.People of all ages are taught to believe these belittling behaviors are what to look for in asignificant other. Including toxic relationships in movies is okay, romanticizing them is anotherthing. When teens are exposed to inaccurate perceptions of disputed issues, they may continue tothink that certain behaviors and activities are usual as adults. Healthy relationships have beenrendered outdated in today's culture as toxic relationships appear more frequently in books,television shows, and movies. Modern writings and movies romanticize emotionally, verbally, oreven violently abusive relationships.Why are these relationships glorified? It is because of the romanticized portrayal of toxicrelationships in the media. For instance, they almost always have a happy ending, they make thevillains conventionally appealing, which causes the viewer to automatically be biased towardsthem, and they give the spectator an adrenaline rush. Typically, only an hour or so of the couple'stoxic relationship is shown to the viewers. This makes it challenging for the audience tounderstand just how demanding and prolonged a poisonous cycle is in reality. This is yet anotherillusion that will lead the audience to believe that toxicity is an inevitable part of allrelationships, which is hazardous in and of itself.
