Journalist, Amy Zimmerman’s article implies that heterosexual people portray bisexual actors on tv to be based off their own interpretation of what a homosexual person should be like. To the eye, everyone has their own opinions on what bisexuality/homosexuals should act or be like. In the article she gives many depicting points as to why she feel this way. Not only did she review an interview by Larry King. She gave a better understanding of what she meant by speaking on popular tv shows such as “Orange Is the New Black.”
When someone identifies as a ‘transgender’ person, it means that they were “born with typical male or femal anatomies, but feel as though they’ve been born into the ‘wrong body’” (Intersex Society of North America, 2008). As of 2013, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights founded ‘UN Free and Equal’, a “global campaign against homophobia and transphobia”, though there are no formal treaties regarding transexual rights at his point (UN Free & Equal, 2018). Safe Schools is a
Part 1 There is a particular point of view found in certain recent Hollywood films that explores the varying spectrum of sexuality and the role representation plays in an individual’s life. In the traditional view of sexuality in society, sexuality has an established separation, homosexual or heterosexual. In The Monster and the Homosexual Benshoff mentions “how homosexuality is thought and felt by heterosexuals is part and parcel of the way the culture teaches them (and us) to think and feel about their heterosexuality,” (Benshoff 95). In this context the heterosexual view of a homosexual is based on preconceived notions that the audience have obtained from society.
She took the world by storm in 2008 with the release of her first studio album The Fame and shows no signs of slowing down. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, formally known as Lady Gaga, has an overly exaggerated on-stage persona, and is an artist that is like no other, attracting the attention of the media and scholars ever since. She has built an empire based on self-love – a song, album, and nonprofit foundation based on "empowering youth" and "inspring bravery" (Lady Gaga, 2017). Through both her music and her eccentric appearance in the media, Lady Gaga has been able to challenge dominant gender roles publicly, and often in over-dramatic ways (Musulin, 2012). Everything about her from the way she dresses to the lyrics of her songs,
When examining different advertisement such as Sephora, Hillary Clinton and Because I am Girl, ,many of them use online as a way to reach out to the younger demographic and tend to release videos to create a trend. When examining all the advertisement it is clear that many of them are positive, but the one advertisement that should out the most, was the Hillary Clinton advertisement after the presidential debate. The advertisement provided a powerful tone that encourage the Hispanic community to see how Donald Trump is not fit to be present, as they used a well prominent Latina women Alicia Machando, former Miss Universe to discuss the racism and sexist comments she received from Donald Trump. Throughout the video advertisement, the mood demonstrated sadness but hope for a better future with Hillary Clinton if she is chosen as president. Even though all advertisement were excellent at showcasing their message, there clearly is more room for improvement such as for example with Because I am girl campaign in regards to #DayoftheGirl should have tagged different politicial figures or celebrities to support this cause, that way it can create more followers and support for their campaign and organization.
Artists like Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole rap about themes and issues prevalent in our current society and tend to stay away from misogynistic lyrics. Yet we still have lyrics like “Don’t save her, she don’t want to be saved” in J. Coles song No Role Modelz. He compares women to those in reality shows to those in 90’s tv shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to describe relationships today. Without having role models, young people would just prioritize sex in their relationship. It is also a reference to Project Pat’s single “Don’t Save Her” which means to imply that the man would be saving the woman from being used by other men.
The visibility of queer bodies and the definitions that are described to such visible bodies goes further than simply identifying gay and lesbian bodies. The act of ‘coming out’ shapes the understanding of queer visibility, especially for political and social agendas. Leo Bersani’s work “Is the rectum a grave?” assesses the mode of visibility that the discourse of AIDS utilizes in order to “represent” gay men as vessels of venereal diseases and sexually promiscuous and insatiable beings. This is indicative of the violence of definitions of maleness and homosexuality as they are promulgated in a heterosexist discourse of a phallocentric patriarchal society.
The society doesn’t want to admit that there are those who don’t fit the governments idealism of sex. In 2011, the Hijra community in Bangladesh, was able to list their gender as “other” in passport. Soon after that, Australia followed by accepting gender X in passports. Beauvoir talks about Helen Deutsch’s story of a intersex person In Vienna. Simone states that pan or bisexuality on someone who is intersex, is due to the female and male hormones in a body in a two genitalia system.
The character of Rory Gilmore in Gilmore Girls presents a clear example of Lacan’s theorizing on desire, specifically as it is written into the graph of desire. In showcasing Rory’s professional fantasies and eventually perforating them, Gilmore Girls makes an argument about how one should desire in order to experience the least amount of disappointment, or, in Lacanian terms, castration. Rory Gilmore is a subject split by having encountered the Other/language, being quilted to it, and forming her own ego. As a result of her being stitched to language, Rory has desires; one of the most prominent of which is the desire to be a journalist. She recognizes an ideal ego in international correspondent Christiane Amanpour and ascribes general qualities to her that she finds admirable, thus creating an ego ideal.
Sexual orientation is defined by our textbook as the “classification of individuals as heterosexual, bisexual, or homosexual based on emotional, cognitive, and sexual attractions as well as their self-identity and lifestyle” (McCammon, 2007). I chose sexual orientation because it has become a hot topic of discussion in today’s society, and I feel for as much discussion as there is about it, not much information is known. I chose to look at the website Sciencemag.org because the title intrigued me about how there has been a linkage found between markers on the X chromosome and male sexual orientation, and the website is a reliable source of information. I chose the article “Factors that Contribute to the Development of a Lesbian Sexual Orientation: A Literature Review” because it too looks at the various causes of homosexuality, but focuses on lesbianism, which is opposite of what the website focused in on. Between the textbook, website, and article, I feel as though I covered all bases surrounding sexual orientation, from general overviews of theories to more specific biological sex-related orientation.
