For such an important topic, I found it curious that our discussions during class were so dry this week. The topic of feminism and post-feminism hold much relevance in society, and I thought it was ironic that the people who were speaking out about these topics were the men in our class. Ladies- we definitely have something to say, why didn't we speak up? Was it that we have so many of our own ideas/struggles/ experiences that we were too scared to not bring any of it up? For me, the first day of class Heidi asked us to vocalize a type of media that you like, and a type of media that you dislike. I spoke up about how much it bothers me that women are objectified in today's world. Still, I was one of the many that held their tongue during this weeks discussion. In reality, one of the most demeaning things to me is seeing fellow women demoralized in the media just because they are female. Especially women in power like the ones we saw in the documentary. Someone brought up after the viewing that it was the same for them because of their nationality. Yes- we are all victims in this harsh world, but there is a clear division that we've been learning about that is strictly portrayed in the media. The fact that majority of what we see on television is backed predominately by men makes me feel like a drone, and as though we are just served scraps of information that people put together to veer our perceptions of reality. My main issue, is that we speak so much of the issues that we don't seek any solutions. How do we combat this issue? Or, is it possible to diminish this perspective? I'm not sure, the only thing i feel that I can do is be aware of these patterns in society and choose to ignore them.
