Senate candidates asked about 50 Shades during debate

During a political debate, two female candidates running to represent New York in the U.S. Senate were asked if they had read 50 Shades of Grey. I don’t see how this is relevant in any way to the race. I can’t believe the female moderator even asked the question. Both candidates answered no, but personally I think they should have ignored it. I think they should have pointed out how ridiculous it was and moved on to an actual question. I am disappointed that after how far we have come, when we have two women running for the U.S. Senate, they still can’t be taken seriously.

While I love Disney princesses, I will admit there are some major issues with them. This video brings up great points on the messages children can get from watching the movies. Since this class, I have realized that there are very few positive female role models for both children and adults. I think awareness of some of the hidden messages within the media is the first step to changing things.
