Raunchy- openly sexual, obscene, vulgar, lust… that’s how women want to define themselves? Or is it a way to explore female sexuality? In Women and the Rise of Raunch Cluture they speak of being empowered by embracing their sexualities but is it really empowering to dress in lingerie and slap demeaning stickers across your body calling it “works of women’s movement’s”. We learn in the first few chapters what women are fighting for and how it is a constant battle. We fight to be able to attend and compete in these prestigious universities but than we are teaching young pledges how to give lap dances that is taking away from what may women have been fighting for many years. How can we expect to be treated fairly as women when we are not treating ourselves with respect or our peers. It is not liberation but another patriarchy created by man. If you are searching for liberation you should not look for it in something you fined as an attracted trait of a male. Stripping, pole dancing and porn stars I believed should not be looked as liberating due to the solid fact it is something where men can come and “pay” for you almost as if you are an object not a human. We want equal playing grounds in a professional and educational stance but yet we are calling it liberating to allow men to buy us.
In the media many women contribute to this Raunch Culture including former Disney star Miley Cyrus who is now seen preforming oral sex on a blow up doll and being very seductive towards a large blow up penis.
How is this what we want to teach our…

Recent studies suggests that dancing plays a significant role in human sexuality and our mate selection processes.

Million Dollar Miley How Disney Dominated the Tween Market
Disney has always been the “epitome” of innocence, childhood and fun. But with the focus on children experiencing their ﬁrst moments of the magic and fantasy of Disney and adults reliving this childhood through Disneyland, animated movies and their own children’s experiences, Disney was missing a huge demographic. These “inbetweeners”, children between ages 9 and 14, were “too cool” for the childish Disney classics and they weren’t old…

The first time Mr. Harker meets these three vampires, he has been partially asleep. When he…
Sexuality and Gender Roles
As I began the assigned reading this week, the first movie that came to my mind regarding sexuality and gender roles was “Mr. MOM”. This comedy-drama from the early 1980’s, depicted a young male auto executive and his stay at home wife. When hard times hit and he loses his job, she returns to the work force as a high-powered executive in an ad agency, and he stays at home with the 3 young children (Loring et al., 1983). The role reversal was difficult for both of them…
certainly "a" force for Cyrus, it is not "the" force, and we would argue that war is only a force for Cyrus inasmuch as he can use it to obtain praise. It was said that "As to his nature, even now Cyrus is still described in word and song by the barbarians as having been most beautiful in form and most benevolent in soul, most eager to learn, and most ambitious, with the result that he endured every labor and faced every risk for the sake of being praised" (Xenophon 23). While Cyrus' other virtues were…
