In this, people who exhibit different behavior are subjected to different means of objectification, by physically separating f rom the society. These practices are justified using meditation of science [Rabinow, 1984, Page: 8] . 2.

Growing up, we were taught to look at the world in juxtaposition. This outlook forces us to order things such as race, sex, and socioeconomic status in categorical or hierarchical terms. In order to be on top, someone has to be beneath you, so those who are oppressors focus on maintaining their positions while still keeping the oppressed under their thumb. In the reading, Lorde speaking more on feminism but I feel like this is inclusive of men as well, but to me, this passage gives a sense of connectivity between various issues and how none of them can truly be addressed without acknowledging the others. This quote shows how oppression is largely universal while demonstrating how uncomfortable topics should not be avoided for fear of said discomfort.
According to him, taste still seems to be linked to class and power through judgments in the consumption of power.

Truth through Confession: An analysis on Rousseau and Foucault How do we know the truth about ourselves and how do we communicate it? Foucault explores these questions in The History of Sexuality where he poses the “repressive hypothesis” that repressing sex in society caused the opposite effect. There occurred a proliferation of sexual discourse where sex became part of every sector of society entering spaces such as education and medicine. The confession is the primary means of discourse, in other words how information and power are disseminated in society. To Foucault the confession is a mechanism that produces truth; through confession we are creating a truth about ourselves.
Radio, television, film, and the other products of media culture provide materials out of which we forge our very identities; our sense of selfhood; our notion of what it means to be male or female; our sense of class, of ethnicity and race, of nationality, of sexuality; and of "us" and "them." Media images help shape our view of the world and our deepest values: what we consider good or bad, positive or negative, moral or evil. Media stories provide the symbols, myths, and resources through which we constitute a common culture and through the appropriation of which we insert ourselves into this culture. Media spectacles demonstrate who has power and who is powerless, who is allowed to exercise force and violence, and who is not. They dramatize and legitimate the power of the forces that be and show the powerless that they must stay in their places or be oppressed.

Communicational behavior exerts controls and limits on human freedom, especially as practiced by all kinds of institutions and in politics. The science of body communication must politicize itself so that it can help relieve mankind of the "double binding" process of neurotic and psychotic states of mind.

Classification in “She Unnames Them” Analyzed Through Connell In the theory titled “The Social Organization of Masculinity,” the author, Raewyn Connell provides deeper insight to Ursula LeGuin’s short story, “She Unnames Them,” by expressing to readers the significance of names and relationships. Connell breaks down one of the main facets of masculinity, defining the idea of hegemonic masculinity as a system that enables the perpetual dominance of men and subordination of women in society. By applying this lens to “She Unnames Them,” one is able to recognize the significance that naming carries in a sense of power. In fact, Connell’s theory on masculinity enables readers to understand the underlying implications of narrator’s actions throughout the prose. Even as
