What a great doc. Tres bien.
same thing after the fall of the Roman empire
it’s the influence of africa on the world, soon all the promiscuous kids will get aids and die, after that there will be a resurgence of non-promiscuity and virtuous qualities again, which will fit nicely in the new disease ridden dark ages of reduced world populace :p
you are so terrible.i guess your mind is as dark as your first or last name.don”t even mention africa because this is not connective to it
Even though I am aware of the sexualization of girls because of all the media and advertising that we are bombarded with every day, one thought kept coming up for me. How it is that females are willing to participate in the creation of the sexy media images and advertising. A sad commentary on how these females’ attitudes have and are influencing the younger, most vulnerable females in society.
The problem is women aren’t usually in control of the images produced. And if a woman is lucky enough to climb the ladder of success and be in a position where she’s actually making media, she is often bound by patriarchal ideals/standards. bell hooks was right when she said there’s a lot of money to be had in patriarchy. For the most part, successful women in the entertainment/media industry can’t afford to be subversive; they have to comply with certain patriarchal “rules” (e.g. hypersexualization of females, heteronormativity, whiteness) to survive and make money. It sucks.
It’s all true :O
