But people have not stop to think about the hardships women go through, such as giving birth, C-sections, menstrual cycle, menopause, and all the symptoms that go along with it. Many guys that I know think what women go through is not that serious and that we women exaggerate about the pain. What they fail to realize is that, women are stronger than they seem and does not have the time to be complaining on something that cannot be changed. Men should bless women for keeping the human race going without complaint. Once they understand why women have it rougher than men they should start to appreciate all the hardships women goes through.
She is the iconic womanly figure of what woman strive to be and she embodies the vision of earthly love. Modern day marketing companies use her name on products, in an effort to project an air of seduction, beauty and allure. In relation to Landau’s book, I personally asked plenty of my male friends for statistical research off course, asking what they think the best feature of a woman is. Not surprisingly, most men stated that one of the best features of a woman are
Marked Women Deborah Tannen’s, Marked Women (1993) claims that all women are marked linguistically and by the actions they take and there may not be any way for women to avoid this circumstance. Deborah shows the changes that must occur in language in order to make speech more feminine. I think Deborah Tannen’s intention is to enlighten readers to the differences between men and women using language and show how it translates into the visual world. Tannen’s work appeals to both sexes in an attempt to connect with the reader through familiarity. It was interesting to read this particular selection because I agree with and identified with most of what Deborah Tannen says.
Some actions might be dictated by our hormones acting up or the we are raised to treat other and ourselves but our own personal emotions are the causes of our reactions. In the end, males will use logic while females would use intuition. Works Cited: 1) Blum, Deborah. "The Gender Blur." Utne Reader.
Robert Prendergast Dr. Cherukuri Response Paper 1 9.20.11 This section of the reading dealt with how scientific research and science in general has shaped the way people in societies perceive women. Each reading brought another argument on the table, which had a direct correlation to science and women but were all viewed from different standpoints ranging from the connection between magic and science to scientific research about women’s brains. Throughout the readings my reoccurring thought was the interesting juxtaposition that played between the ignorance of western science when dealing with topics of scientific research on gender studies and the clout that western science still holds despite their biases and sheer favoritism to one sex. I found the reading on “Women’s Brains” by Stephen Jay Gould the most intriguing because it dealt with all the factors of scientific research on a specific gender, partiality to one sex, and ignorance boosted by falsified research in the past. I find this research to have many holes and extremely ignorant when considering the simple biological idea that since women have smaller brains than men
Macho feminist Margaret Sanger, for example, was a very extreme birth control activist in the 1920s. She proposed that women could receive the same amount of pleasure, as a man would have from sexual intercourse, if the fear of getting pregnant were taken away with birth control as a solution. Those in the medical profession had their misgivings about birth control because not only might it be harmful to women’s health but it could also contradict the morals that women have set for themselves (Leinwald 186-187). Although there is nothing wrong with prioritizing one’s needs, it is definitely not right to rob someone of their fundamental right to life. Even though Margaret Sanger aimed to improve women’s health care, the end still does not justify her means.
The Price for Beauty Woman throughout history have set standards on how beauty is a large significance in their daily lives. From reading the article by Robin Marantz Henig, “The Price of Perfection”, I’ve learned a lot about the choices and risks woman have taken throughout history to measure up to the idea of perfection. However, perfection is labeled differently through the eyes of the beholder. People tend to make changes from who they really are to become what the media, tradition and cultural practices shows what’s specifically visual perfection. As stated in the article by Robin Henig, “Over the centuries, women have mauled and manipulated just about every body part – lips, eyes, ears, waists, skulls, foreheads, feet… (55).
She’s had many of her work featured in other newspapers such as New York Times, The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast. Heldman uses surveys, self-studies and examples to prove that self-objectification can affect one’s health in both mentally and physically. The definition of self-objectification is viewing one’s body as a sex object to be consumed by the opposite sex gaze, as stated in the article. Analyzing this article, which I can relate to because I too am one of those who read Seventeen magazine and get influence by all the beautiful girls who look so perfect. Heldman states, “With each image, you’re hit with a simple, subliminal message : Girls’ and women’s bodies are objects for others to visually consume.” (Heldman 1) She talks about how in every newspaper stand there is many magazines in which show these so called “cover girls” who look so pretty and have no imperfections.
They look at all factors such as cunnilingus, female ejaculation and the G-spot to see if there is any evidence to support what some of their theories suggest and whether the female orgasm doe have any factors of being important in creating human life. Many will argue over this topic but we should take a look at some studies that have tried to look deeper into a woman’s vagina to really understand the mechanics of how it all works and what reasoning there may be for women to have sexual pleasure at all. Keywords: Orgasm, vagina, pleasure, cunnilingus, female ejaculation. The Female Orgasm: How does it
