Speaking of body image...

My aunt sent me this (don't ask me where she found it, she sends me tons of weird stuff--she's pretty cool) and I thought it was pertinent to our discussion a couple of weeks ago. I was pretty speechless when I first saw it. And I can't believe that she hasn't had ANY health issues due to her corset. Her intestines and stomach are like IN her uterus. UGH. Anyway, thought you'd like to see it. ENJOY!! Here is the link.

The new articles post

Hello friends!

The focus of this week's essay is how our culture encourages sexually violent attitudes in young men. We will take some time to look criticaly at classic media from our youth prior to breaking into small groups. It really is amazing to take a feminist lens to things that you enjoyed as a kid... Should you have some fun examples of old T.V. shows, comic books, or video games you are encouraged to bring them but anecdotes are also acceptable :-D

The article is short but I think it will provide ample fodder for good conversation.
