Objects of desire can make women lose the ability to think critically.

As a woman, you’re taught to be objectified. You’re told your value comes from how hot or sexy you are and how much money you make. You’re also taught that women should only care about men’s opinions of them—and when they start watching about something else, it’s usually because a man has made it clear he doesn’t like it (or at least thinks other people won’t).

It’s no wonder then that many young women don’t think critically about their choices in entertainment because the media have surrounded them that telling them these are the only things worth caring about: looks, money, and power—all things associated with men (and therefore not relevant or valuable).

Women are made to feel uncomfortable when they are alone.

The first thing to understand is that women are made to feel uncomfortable when they’re alone.

In a room with men, it’s normal to feel like you’re being judged and scrutinized for your body. Even if you aren’t wearing anything provocative or revealing, there’s still a chance that someone will comment on how “hot” or “sexy” you look. The same goes for women who are in groups with other women: even if no one says anything explicitly sexist (and sometimes they do), there will be at least some level of discomfort present because women have been taught from childhood that their value lies in being attractive enough for male attention—or at least not putting up too much resistance when it comes time for them to be sexualized by others.

This has led us down a path where we think pop culture teaches us how to behave toward our bodies and what kind of behavior is acceptable toward other people’s bodies (e.g., men kissing each other on TV shows). We see ourselves reflected in us through stories about romance and love; however, these narratives rarely show anything beyond two people standing together discussing the weather or something dull like that!

Femininity is linked to sexuality, which keeps women on edge.

It’s not just men who are taught to see women as sexual objects and find them unsexy. Women are often made to feel guilty for being sexual, and that attitude is reflected in how the media portrays women. Whether it’s a movie starring an attractive actress or a TV show about women’s sports teams, if you’re watching something with lots of naked bodies on screen—especially if they’re female—you can bet there will be some moralizing about modesty and purity at play somewhere along the way. This idea that women need to keep their sexuality under control is one reason why so many people get upset when they see photos showing off cleavage or bare thighs; it’s another reason why we’ve been told for years what kinds of clothes we should wear (a dress over jeans/heels over sneakers), how much makeup we should wear (no makeup but lots of blush/lipstick), what kind of shoes would look good with our outfit etc…

The media objectifies women.

In the media, women are portrayed as objects of desire and pity. Women are sexualized and often degrade themselves to be part of this objectification process. This includes dressing provocatively or being placed in situations that make them look weak or vulnerable (such as being alone with a man they don’t know). Women also portray other characters in these roles because it sells more magazines or TV shows than just having a man do it alone would do on its merit.

It’s important to note that this isn’t just happening on television; it happens everywhere: online news sites like Huffington Post have articles about how women should dress, so they don’t distract men from their work; fashion magazines display images of models wearing provocative clothing while covering up half their bodies with strategically placed palm trees so readers can see what we’re supposed to think about those clothes (and maybe buy some too!).

A woman’s value is defined by what men desire, not as a whole person.

Women are valued for their sexuality and looks.

Women are valued for their ability to attract men.

Women are valued for their ability to be good mothers and wives, but not as individuals.

The male gaze dictates how women are perceived.

The male gaze is used to describe how men look at women. The male gaze is defined as: “The representation of women in popular culture through their use as sexual objects or as objects of desire.”

The male gaze dictates how women are perceived and how they are treated. When you see something created by men, it will likely have an underlying message about how men think about and treat women—and it’s usually not good!

Romantic love is a distorted concept that leads to damaging outcomes for women.

Love is a myth, and romantic love is so ingrained in our culture that it’s hard to imagine an alternate reality where people don’t fall in love or get married. But what if there were no such thing as “love”? What if we all knew that the only way to connect with someone was through sex—and then dared to say so? The truth is, this isn’t just some fantasy scenario; this is very much how things work in real life (and have worked since time immemorial). Romantic relationships are built on sex, and when you’re having sex with someone else outside your relationship (whether it’s for yourself or with another person), then no matter how much chemistry may exist between any two people involved…

We must consider media as more than just entertainment.

You may not realize it, but the media is a powerful tool. It influences our culture, attitudes, and behaviors—even our beliefs and opinions. And this isn’t just limited to movies or TV shows: magazines, newspapers, and blogs all impact how we think about ourselves (and, more importantly, what we think about other people).

Media can also influence our values: how we view ourselves about others; what’s important in life; what constitutes success; etc., but most importantly for us here at Women & Girls Rising: how women are treated within these spaces matters!

The film received one negative review in “The New York Times,” which gave the film a rating of 1 out of 4. The reviewer, Jill Amawheenu, said that the movie lacks “any kind of conviction beyond what is happening onscreen.”

Director Peter Berg’s next film was the action thriller remake of the 1976 blaxploitation film “Rocky IV” (also known as “Creed”), starring Sylvester Stallone and Carl Weathers, reprising their roles from previous installments. In addition to directing, Berg was credited as a producer on this film after producing three films for his production company Level 5 Films in 2009; he led the first two films in that same period and co-produced them with Mark Wahlberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura. On July 15, 2010, it was reported that Jennifer Aniston would be starring in a remake of the 1980 fantasy drama “Ghost,” directed by Jim Sheridan, who also served as an executive producer on “Rocky IV.”
