Journal 6 - The Simpsons!!!
Pop culture glamorizes violence and cheapens the value of education. It emphasizes the importance of material things and "bling" versus hard work, education, and nourishing relationships with family and friends. It portrays women as sex objects in movies and music videos.
I've been watching the Simpsons since i was in the 6th grade. One positive thing i have noticed/learned is that they always stick up for each other.The Simpsons constantly fight, but they always stay together and love each other. when push comes to shove they will always back each other up. one negative influence is that it contains some violence in it e.g the character homer strangles Bart every time he pisses him off.
