In a perfume ad released by Calvin Klein recently, a young woman was posed nude on a couch, seducing the camera, and the perfume bottle was tucked away nearly out the frame. The photographer posed the women as a tool, using her sexual appeal and her body as a means of selling the product. Essentially, women are being significantly rewarded for their sexual attractiveness as opposed to their intelligence, virtues, and personality. This in turn causes the average women to question her validity in society; her sexual appeal, her image, and her body as opposed to non-observable characteristics like her capability. This also snowballs into the belief that objectifying women is justifiable because it is so publicly shown in magazines, television ads, and billboards.
In Beauty (Re)Discovers the Male Body, Susan Bordo takes a perplexing stance towards the outlook on recent male modeling. Bordo begins the essay displaying a number of ads from Calvin Klein and presenting a positive outlook on male objectification. Her position at the end of the essay reveals a paradox in her perspective; she suggests that image obsession is a bad thing. Bordo begins with a positive stance towards male objectification but ends with inconsistency--revealing her true opinion concerning visual culture. Why would Bordo lead on the reader with opinions that are not really her own?
The theme of fantasy is employed in the ad as an effective vehicle to deliver the ad’s appeals and to manage possible objections over the inevitable depiction of the model as a sex object, Chanel has been a supplier of luxury goods to affluent, high-status women for the last century. The brand certainly has been around to witness women’s evolving roles in society, from roles that were traditionally domestic to those now outside of the home and family: women are now leaders of state, CEO’s, fighter pilots and firefighters. The ad seems to antithesize the ideals of women’s independence and strength by displaying a nude model draped over the top curve of a giant Chance bottle. The model is covered, barely, with red and pink rose petals, and she is accessorized--a pair of expensive gold heeled sandals, and a dark-haired Casanova nuzzling her neck. Unlike the cool, dark, shades used to convey drama and sophistication in other Chanel campaigns,
I also believe by using Ellen DeGeneres a knowingly open Lesbian that usually wears menswear as she is not wearing your usual dress that most Cover Girl wear. The advertiser is trying to reach the lesbian audience. Showing Ellen with both arms holding her jacket as the wind blows her scarf aside with a huge smile, expresses to the audience the confidence and emotions that she feels good about herself. By using Ellen a more realistic and average person than the normal Cover Girl; I believe they are using the window affect in this ad therefore the advertiser incorporates pathos. The advertiser used
Mean Girls attempts to critique the typical female stereotype by using the plastics to over exaggerate the glamour and happiness that comes from being popular. While attempting to provide an ostensible moral to its viewers, the humor and the extreme over exaggeration undercuts the intentional meaning of the story. It ends up making light of the reality of the struggles and pressures that are put on women. Mean Girls ends up sending a negative message to the female teen population about how women should look, dress, and act. A young girl or teen watching the film is supposed to see the falsity and danger of popularity, but instead a typical young viewer will see and attempt to emulate the image of the plastics.
Rodeo: The Pros and the Amateurs “If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch,” (qtd. In Wisdom Quotes) America is full of diversity and people with different opinions and thoughts. With such a “melting pot” of people, some were bound to be leaders and some were bound to be followers. Just because someone is a leader, does not mean they are a leader for the right thing. Founding members of Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are groups of people that do not understand the origin of rodeo and its sensitivity to animal welfare issues.
Singer and songwriter, Pink, takes a stand for an important issue in one of her most popular and controversial songs, Stupid Girls. Not only does Pink’s lyrics coincide with the graphics she portrays in her video, she also has admirable intentions for writing the song which makes viewers reflect on themselves about that issue after hearing the track, or viewing the music video. Thus, I will argue that Pink’s Stupid Girls song and music video portrays issues that women in society are facing, due to the general mentality popular media places on femininity. Her argument through these portrayals is that women should be seen as ambitious, equal individuals through the eyes of society, and through the eyes of the beholder. Firstly, I will discuss culture’s objectification of women in the media.

It is mesmerizing to read about the development of feminine modesty, which Peril illustrates throughout the essay with abundant factoids highlighted with bullets within the text of the essay. “Betsy Martin McKinney told readers of Ladies’ Home Journal that…sexual activity commenced with intercourse and completed with pregnancy and childbirth” (pg. 280-81). This particular bulleted point precisely offers an excellent view on sexual intercourse and how girls of the think pink era were taught to think. “[A] new game for girls called Miss Popularity (“The True American Teen”), in which players competed to see who could accrue the most votes…for such attributes as nice legs…[and] a constant’s figure, voice, and type” (pg.
