Media was made for us to react to. We react to what we relate to, to what we want to be, to what shocks us, etc. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. It could open us up to new thing, new people, and new experiences, (for example, introducing people to new lifestyles such as LGBT). But it can also close us off, implant opinions into our head, and show us a false reality, (for example, giving young girls thoughts that they have to act and look a certain way). It really is an individual process of how each person reacts to the media, but everyone has a reaction whether it’s subconscious or not. You might wonder how we can make people have good reactions rather than bad reactions, but it seems to me to be something that has to change in the media and not in the people watching.
