Welcome to the class blog of Ben Villarreal's Freshman English II course, The Rhetoric of Pop Culture! Here you'll find the thoughts, ideas, and burgeoning written work from our university English class about pop culture.
I never realized how sexist sci-fi movies can be. It is amazing how many plots circulate around some evil sexy woman who uses her wily charms to seduce and destroy everyone around her to gain limitless power. The message of women using sexuality to get ahead and get over has been so artfully woven into media, it proves we need to carefully monitor what we are reading and watching. It is so easy to gleefully accept the stereotypes and tropes forced upon us from pop culture with passive acceptance.
You're absolutely right! We can't expect storytellers to change if they think we're unaware of it.
