Analyse your text and answer these questions:

  1. Do you see people you can identify with in your medium? Why or why not?
  2. How does your medium handle stereotypes: do you see positive images of men / women / ethnicities or do you see negative stereotypes?
  3. How has technology changed so that people have access to / are exposed to these images?
  4. Do you think the creator of this medium was a member of the group being depicted? Why or why not?
