In Dante’s Inferno, an epic poem about Dante’s journey into the depths of Hell, he comes across many different evils that we experience in everyday life on Earth. Virgil takes Dante through rings of Hell where he witnesses the punishing of sinners for different things, such as lacking self control or violence. These sins are broken down into specifics, but of all the many crimes Dante speaks of, it is worth noting that sex crimes do not come up as their own ring in Inferno. Understandably so, since at the time it may have been taboo to talk about. However, in modern society, sex crimes are a growing problem that are gaining attention.
What made his band so appealing was inventing a more violent sense on rock music which he called shock rock. He did this by using his concerts as a stage show that included devices of death such as a guillotine, the gallows, or electric chair. He would also use fake blood, boa constrictors and baby dolls. Each of his concerts goes through a certain process: sin, death, then resurrection. Band members have come and gone, but Alice was able to handle the challenges through time to still be the greatest rock star of all time and famed Americana.
Perhaps the commercial is reaching out more to male consumers rather than female, however, it presses on main things that sell most products in present time; money, sex, women, and popularity.

UNLEASH YOUR HERO By Tiffany Adams This “how-to” article is aimed towards a male audience in middle life. This population may read magazines such as Sports Illustrated or even Playboy. These magazines may objectify women and encourage such theories such as hegemonic masculinity, but they reach a wide male audience that has a huge impact on the issues of Gender Violence and thus deserve to be tapped. This article aims to motivate men to take a stance against Intimate Partner Violence, as activating bystanders even in a more passive role can only have a positive effect on society today. You can hear them arguing, again; but this time, there is an abrupt end to the conflict as one of them escalates
Sexism in the Music Industry It may seem like the music industry is dominated by female singers, however, there is a backstory that seems to contradict that statement. Statistics constantly reveal that women in the music industry learn less than their male counterparts. About 47% of women in the music industry receive an income of less than $10,000. Whereas many of their male counterparts who had entered the industry at about the same time, leaped upwards in their sector towards higher paying roles. There is definitely a good reason as to why this is happening, and a part of it is connected to society and its definition of what is acceptable and unacceptable.

“Shall endow chariots with incredible speed, without the aid of any animal,” David Goewey was talking about SUV’s in a sense, but this relates to the Ford Mustang too. In the early 60’s muscle cars were huge with younger people (Goewey 147). Chevy and Dodge already had their muscle cars and theirs were big with this generation even the Pontiac Firebird was accepted to the muscle cars standards. But Ford was the only one without any type of muscle cars, this was when John Najjar pitched his idea of a car different than any other made, it was wild, free, fast, wicked. Ford’s Mustang first model was in 1964; it was revolutionary to the car world.
In terms of Stairway to Heaven I believe that the former is true however the later doesn’t hold true. He says that “cock rock performers are aggressive, dominating, and boastful, and they constantly seek to remind the audience of their prowess, their control” (Firth & McRobbie 374). Robert Plant displays just the opposite in this song. His singing is not aggressive nor dominating, it is submissive and inviting. From a visual perspective Led Zeppelin is very much sexually expressive.
Unity brings strength upon the people but when it comes to dealing with sex in America everything else shatters. There are so many songs that influence sex among young adults. Lyrics talk about having different partners, but in reality society considers that to be fiction. Today many artists have involved themselves with young people and it is viewed through television.

The two magazines have very different viewpoints and are focused on two very different types of audience, but still have some things in common.

The rest of the cover page is in headlines about adventures, extreme sports and sport equipment. They are typed in a simple black font and only one article is collared yellow to draw attention to the most powerful motorcycle ever.
