KK温馨提示:冲击阶段必须回顾重点考点了!(第232句)

记得听语音:

今年瑞典这个国家真的很火,下面这个句子是我82号出的154句;

那个时候一系列的事件还没有发生。

现在回过头来看这个句子你就知道这个国家真的是一个非常极端的国家。早就不是我们所熟悉的温和的北欧国家。挺令人遗憾的。

今天句子真的很到位!话题非常重要!

女孩玩芭比,男孩玩飞机。玩具市场一直遵循这种性别分明的营销路线。但近日瑞典的监管机构公开责难北欧最大的玩具厂商Top-Toy,指责其广告宣传极其狭隘、落后于时代。瑞典在对性别平等的追求上屡放大招,做法彻透深入,引人注目。几年前,一个女性政党提议立法要求男性坐着小解;2004年则提议收“男人税”,让每个男人都为男性作为整体对女性所受的暴力和伤害做出经济补偿;2012年更是正式提出用中性代词代替“他”或“她”。大西洋月刊的作者认为,男孩和女孩的不同源于生理,他们有不同的兴趣和需求,只有极端且持续的行为修正才可能大幅地改变他们的本能喜好。指责玩具公司性别歧视,有失公允。不同不意味着不能平等。我们无需把性别或生理角色视作唯一的命运,毕竟人类不同于蚂蚁,是一个依靠才能进行社会分工的群体。但我们也不应将性别偏好视作需要大力拯救的顽疾。“喜欢粉色”和“独立女性”并行不悖。瑞典对我们的不友好其实就是偏见盛行的表现。

今天的句子:

Few would deny that parents and teachers
should expose children to a wide range of toys and play activities. But what
the Swedes are now doing in some of their classrooms goes far beyond
encouraging children to experiment with different toys and play styles
they are requiring it. And toy companies
who resist the gender neutrality mandate face official censure. Is this kind of
social engineering worth it? Is it even ethical?

思考题1:

What is authors attitude towards some toy companies in Sweden?

(A) skeptical (B) less ethical (C)
sympathetic (D) critical

思考题2:

Which of the following would the author
prefer to agree?

A) Children should not be
exposed to many toys and activities.

B) Swedes should not encouge children
to experiment with different toys.

C) Toy companies should not
resist the gender neutrality mandate.

D) Children should not be
required to experience different toys and play styles.

词汇突破:

1.expose使暴露于;揭露

2.go far beyond 远远超过

3.resist抵抗

4.neutrality中立

5.mandate命令;指令

6.censure责难

7.ethical道德的

第一句:

Few would deny that parents and teachers
should expose children to a wide range of toys and play activities.

切分:

1. Few would deny

2. that parents and teachers should expose
children to a wide range of toys and play activities.

参考译文:家长和老师应该让孩子大范围地接触各种玩具和游戏,很少人会否定这点。

第二句:

But what the Swedes are now doing in some of
their classrooms goes far beyond encouraging children to experiment with
different toys and play styles
they are requiring it.

切分:

1. But what the Swedes are now doing in some
of their classrooms goes far beyond

encouraging children to experiment with
different toys and play styles

2. they are requiring it

参考译文:但瑞典人在一些教室的所为已经超出了鼓励的范畴,他们在命令孩子尝试不同玩具和游戏风格。

第三句:

And toy companies who resist the gender
neutrality mandate face official censure.

切分:

1. And toy companiesface official censure

2. who resist the gender neutrality mandate

参考译文:抵制性别中立指令的玩具公司将面临官方谴责。

第四句:

Is this kind of social engineering worth it?
Is it even ethical?

参考译文:这种社会工程值得么?它甚至是道德的么?

思考题1:

题干问的是对玩具公司的态度,不是问对瑞典监管机构的看法!

监管机构要求玩具公司出品性别中立的玩具,如果不按规定来就要,审查玩具公司。

作者就发问了:

这种社会工程值得么?它甚至是道德的么?

所以对监管机构的看法是:skeptical

而对玩具公司只能是同情了!

你们定位定错了吧!!!

题干问的是对玩具公司的态度,不是问对瑞典监管机构的看法!

定位!定位!定位!

What is authors attitude towards some toy companies in Sweden?

(A) skeptical (B) less ethical (C) sympathetic
(D) critical

要是服气呢就帮K哥点一下次条,增加下曝光率。谢谢了!

提示:

Skeptical critical 的方向是一样的都是反对;

区别在于,skeptical 是以疑问的方式来反对。

Critical是以明确的方式反对。

但到现在为止真题中都没有考过这个两个词辨析,选其中一个。一般都不同时出现,出现了就是都不对。

思考题2:

Which of the following would the author
prefer to agree?

A) Children should not be
exposed to many toys and activities.

B) Swedes should not encouge children
to experiment with different toys.

C) Toy companies should not
resist the gender neutrality mandate.

D) Children should not be
required to experience different toys and play styles.

(孩子不应该不要求去体验各种玩具和玩耍方式)

这样思考题的答案就是:D!

我们可以鼓励孩子去体验不同的玩耍方式,但是不能要求啊!

C选项就更不对了,作者是同情公司的。即使公司抵制,作者也没有觉得不应该啊。

现在明白了吧!不明白就好好看一下。你肯定行的!

明天的句子:

But as we move away from the skinny goals of the mid-2000s and embrace different shapes and sizes, one group of campaigners has taken things a step too far. Fronted by plus-sized models and social media influencers, the fat acceptance movement aims to normalize obesity, letting everyone know that it’s fine to be fat.思考题:There is a new campaign to embrace the idea of being fat.

来吧,谢谢你的点赞了!感谢感谢!点一点,更快乐哦!感谢了!

有空点看一下次条,有福利送的!
