Zack Molloy Professor Kranzler CMP 115 November 16, 2014 How Ads Objectify Women and Men According to Jean Kilbourne, in her article, “Two Ways a Woman Can Get Hurt: Advertising and Violence” women are objectified from ads; men are objectified also from the ads. Kilbourne talks about how the ads are a problem to women and men because they are provocative and objectify how men and women should be looked at. An ad for “Suit Supply” objectifies how women are looked at and how they can be treated. Women are advertised much different then men are. Ads objectify women by misrepresenting them.
Manney Bustos Dr. Holly Stave SCRT 181W 8 September 2013 “Blurred Lines” and “Battered Bitches”: When Misogyny Becomes Expressive and Embracive “Bitch I’ma kill you! You don’t wanna fuck with me — Girls neither --- you ain’t nothing but a slut to me…”¹ this is the opening chorus of one of the many ballads sported by the infamous Eminem. To the tweens and good-girls-gone-bad, he is a misunderstood ‘bad boy’ sex god. To the overcompensated and rebel-high intellects, he is a performance breakthrough and ‘artistic voice for the ages’; the guys down the street still allude to him as poetic Greeks of old. As is the case for most viral phenomena, there are those who aren’t too keen on hip-hop Elvis’s lyrical prose.
The increased appearance of this chaotic issue in our nation is saddening. Men throughout America are turning their backs on the beautiful women of our nation, and instead mingling with themselves. Dressing in the flashy and ostentatious clothing that other homosexual men have created in the fashion industry, homosexuals are becoming an increasingly apparent sight for all to see. The issue isn’t that they are attracted to each other, mind you. The issue is that these men are affecting the others in society with their malicious ideals, notably the harmless women of this nation.
It states that many women’s focus is on her wardrobe so they can impress the opposite sex as they feel useless if they fail to impress, they also argue that fashion is a more female dominated area, they show that most of the top fashion designers are male ruled and that Radical Feminists such as Germaine Greer believe that all key societies (including fashion) have been found on patriarchy (ruled by men). They believe that men are the enemy and that they bring out clothes that result in the oppression of women and cause them to be exploited for sexual purposes only. They argue that the fashion industry segregate sexes with many popular singers exposing their body for money, this can be the case for Miley Cyrus; where she obtains money by exposing her body. Feminists view this as them doing this to please men and that women are exploited in this sexual way in order for men to find pleasure. They argue that the fashion industry promotes the women’s expressive role of doing the housework, looking after the children and not going out to work while they are used as a sex tool by the fashion industry making clothing which shows many body parts of women’s bodies such as their legs which males will like to look at.
This implies that Hero is only there for her physical appearance – a very demeaning portrayal of women, focusing as it does on their objectification. Much ado is very misogynistic as women like Hero are constantly being taken advantage of. Woman are seen as mere possessions and used whenever they are deemed fit. This reflects male dominance and patriarchy. Women are the weaker sex in this play: they are forced into giving into male power by doing what they are told; which is expected of them.
Society seems paradoxical in its reverence for innocence and purity, while at the same time indulging in the very hedonistic lifestyle it so condemns. Sober productivity to work and sexual purity are exalted, but everywhere scantily clad women peddle the best product that will achieve drunkenness in the hopes of leading to casual sex. ‘Sex, drugs, and Rock ’N Roll’ has become the mantra of an entire generation, yet people still hold in esteem the values of living a virtuous and wholesome life. Roman Polanski’s Repulsion (1965) explores this contradiction between thought and action through the protagonist’s psychological state and mental breakdown. Polanski argues that the human ideal of wholesomeness and purity cannot survive in a male- dominated civilization ruled by sex.
Holden is always searching for a new friend but he always turns away at the last moment. When Holden interacts with women in the novel, he is very different when he interacts with men. The female characters all are very important because they present and symbolize many different things. In addition, Holden is very nice to younger females but to older females he gets sexually attracted. When this happens he will do anything to get women`s attention, which leads to him being an extremely disrespectful and impolite teenager who is also very immature.
Some clips negatively affect women’s image by showing that women are obstacles to the male protagonist’s development in the film. To look at the cinema, by manipulating the filmic elements, the director implies different characteristics and power between men and women as well. The reason behind the inequality is a complex, but cultural significance can easily answer this since Chinese men always dominating women since hundreds of years ago, it is called machismo. The Big Boss is a machismo movie, which focuses too much on male masculinity and undermines the significance of female. The unbalanced portion of scenes that are played by men and women indicates the inequality between genders.
The image of a dominant female character, a woman with enormous and incredible breasts presents allegories of the male world, where men are usually choose women for their sexual satisfaction. Female breast is positioned as a tool for male intimidations, it is not the goal for desire, but it is a violent instrument intimidating men around this female character. Tura Satana, the actress, who plays the main role in the film, has a violent and magnificent appearance. Her makeup is aggressive; she wears black costume and scares off men. What was the main intention of the director, when he showed a woman from a different perspective, than it used to be in the society?
Also, Eminem is actually condemning abuse by displaying it in such a public form. In the song conflict arises when she wants to leave (resists patriarchal oppression). The male in the song threatens with burning the female alive which is surely one of the most horrendously tortuous ways to murder someone. The female in the song doesn’t do anything about it showing that he is portraying women as a weaker being. Male’s having
