Here many women have taken to wearing scandalous clothes because they “no longer needed to worry about objectification or misogyny.” This new view confuses Levy because feminism changed so much in such a short period of time. This is like any movement when one goal is achieved the group will try to solve the next issue that arises. Levy seems to not understand this progression because she is confused why women “burning their bras” and “picketing Playboy” evolved to women with revealing clothes and breast implants. For most, this change in feminism is appreciated because it shows that the war past feminists were fighting has been won. Her lack of understanding that the priorities change leads me to believe that she is ignorant to the topic. Her ignorance is also shown in the way she judges other women and she is misogynistic in what she wrote. In her first chapter, Levy is judgmental towards the girls who want to dress in revealing clothes. One of the points of feminism is to not judge people…

    Nice Legs In modern society, overly sexual representation of women is widely accepted. Women who engage in pornography, stripping, nude photography, and magazines are now accepted. Some women perceive a career in the strip club or pornography as degrading.

    Why Is Ariel Levy Crazy

    • 4 Pages

    Let me start by saying that when I first read this article I thought that Ariel Levy was crazy. Her point of view was completely opposite from mine. The way she expressed of everything females have accomplished in the past 80 years was wrong comparing it to my ideas. I didn’t like the way she refer to female’s has chauvinist pigs; women who have objectified other women and themselves. But after doing some research of my own and comparing it to my own life experiences, I started to see her point…

    The beach was my favorite song. The gull’s obnoxious caws as they flew overhead hunting for snappers, the toddlers laughing at the mischievous waves that grazed their unexpecting toes, the running dialogue and staccato beats of laughter that danced between me and my friends: every sound was a note in the ever-familiar symphony of the bay. When I was here, the rest of the world seemed strikingly bleak. Nothing could compare to the rickety green dock called my name, the soft sand that warmed my…

    make it out of there fast enough. The day was coming to an end and I could feel the sadness wash over me. Yet the day wasn’t over yet. As we were walking out of the theater, I saw her. There in the gleaming sunset with the cresting of white sea foam waves was my mermaid. She had strands of liquid gold hair, sea glass blue eyes, and a velvety teal tail. She flashed me a pearly smile and waved. I slowly approached her transfixed as I shamelessly stared. Here was my mermaid. My dream come true.…

    Stereotypes In Cartoons

    evil? Cartoons seem to have a way to share a secret message that we don't see unless we're looking closely. The message that you're not beautiful unless your skin is light, you have a small waist, and have long skinny legs. This is one of the many ones you can get from watching closely. As kids we don't notice this. To us it was another character needed to bring the movie along. It seems to me that they don't think we notice, this which is partially true. Most of us don't but now we're coming…
