Here is an article I thought you would all find interesting. It talks about bisexuality and how it is more of an accepted trait in women than men. Since it is more accepted in women films and TV shows tend to show more intimacy in women’s friendships. These hints of bisexuality indicate ways in which women are opposing oppression. Enjoy.
Earlier this semester I attended ESPN game day. Four men from ESPN talked about their predictions for the upcoming games. The cheerleaders, dance team and Roc danced and cheered to get the crowed going. Jamie Dixon, the head coach, and two other players were interviewed. State Farm Agents were handing out hats, doughnuts and signs. After all the cheering and excitement started to dwindle down a random student was selected to throw a half court shot.
How many of you played with Barbie when you were younger? When I was babysitting Saturday night we played Barbie and watched Barbie and the Nutcracker. It reminded me of my childhood. I used to stick my Barbie’s head in the radiator. I was convinced that the hot radiator was an old fashion hair dryer. While I was browsing headlines on Bust I came across this article about Barbie. The artist, Daena Title, paints Barbie drowning. In these paintings Daena portrays what Barbie means to her. Barbie drowning is symbolic of women rejecting what society expects them to be.
I really enjoyed both articles this week. I wrote about “ The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House.” I picked this article because it relates to the Mohanty article from last week. Both articles deal with the fact that individuals in one society should not be clumped together. They should be looked at as individuals who have different characteristics and backgrounds. Lorde starts her article by illuminating her main point that it is essential for feminists to become tolerant of the differences between women.
I was watching TV and this Chevy car commercial came on. The name of this commercial is “Like Father, Like Son.” Who is to say that girls cannot drive trucks and support a family? In this add the wife waits at home for her hard working husband. I thought this related to our class discussion and Ruth Rosen’s book. Enjoy!
My name is Sarah Ligget and I am a sophomore. I declared anthropology as my major my freshman year. I have finally made the decision to double minor in Italian and religious studies. I am Italian and visited Italy two years ago. Hopefully, I will be studying abroad in Italy and the Himalayan Mountains. Recently I decided to minor in religious studies because my faith has taken precedence in my life. Throughout my life I have gone to church almost every Sunday. However this past year I started to embrace my religion.
