During my trip to Target I was looking for something that has a big impact on hegemonic masculinity. I was looking for the new call of duty game, when I noticed a similarity on all the video games. I realized that video games don’t usually have girl as characters and much less have a girl star usually they are just like the helper, the girlfriend, or in the case of Super Mario you’re trying to rescue her. This shows how most people believe that video games are not for girls. Super Mario Bros is a great example of hegemonic masculinity because its a game targeting kids and family and already kids unconsciously get the idea of being stronger than women, they think women need a man to save her. Already kids unconsciously get the idea that video games are for boys and when they see a girl playing it, they automatically state that they are not good enough. Even parents don’t get girls video games, they get them dolls
