Typical Responses

9 Dec

Of course we’ve all seen Michelle Obama’s DNC speech, but did we pay attention to the medias responses? This video is a clip of the media’s responses to her speech. As usual they talked more about her attire, personality, and personal life than the issues she addressed in her speech. As we’ve learned this is the typical response.

Gender Stereotypes

This is a short clip that without words describes male and female stereotypes. It points out some issues such as how women are held back from jobs, but the majority of the video is relatable. Hopefully in a few decades the gender gaps will be closer.

Get Real!

Listen to your elders. The largest generation are the people over 50. However, in the media the majority of actresses and actors range from teenagers to people in the late thirties. The Baby Boomer generation has been through a lot and our current generation needs to analyze their ways in order to keep making progress, especially in the fight for women equality.

Offensive?….

7 Dec

Ellen DeGeneres is a lovable, quirky woman. Hardly someone that would be caught offending anyone.

The activist group One Million Moms have called this JCPenney commercial with Ellen Degeneres offensive. Why? Because Ellen is an openly gay woman.

The content of the commercial isn’t an issue for One Million Moms, a group closely tied to the American Family Association, the group is offended more by JCPenney’s decision to hire her and feature her on commercials. Their complaints really don’t go beyond that… they are just angry that Ellen isn’t being judged, criticized, and outcast for her sexuality.

“Since April, JC Penney’s has not aired Ellen DeGeneres in one of their commercials until now,” the group said. “A new JCP ad features Ellen and three elves. JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets. We have contacted JC Penney’s several times in the past with our concerns, and they will not listen. They have decided to ignore our complaints so we will avoid them at all costs.”

One Million Moms has a right to be against whatever they choose to be. With the gradual changing of public opinion towards LGBT rights and the upcoming Supreme Court case on gay marriage, the country is clearly going in a different direction than they want it to. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad direction or one that we should not take.

Hopefully, in the future they’ll view Ellen based on her personality and not want her shunned for her sexuality. The rest of the country has.
