How is language used to represent gender in text H?
The genre of text H is seen to be a self-help guide/survival guide for men who have decided to go shopping with their girlfriend, or wide. The text is specifically designed to be humorous, as it is seen as being a parody of a legitimate advisory manual, with an intended purpose to entertain and instruct. “How to stay alive”, the previous quote indicates the levels of humour seen throughout, indicating that you almost need this guide if you are planning on surviving whilst out shopping with your “lady”. This implies that the experience is rather scary and rare on behalf of men, suggesting that you run the risk of death, when in fact the intended meaning is to be humorous towards the intended male audience.
