makes sense Joy.. and I totally agree that the sexualisation of women like this is a massive problem especially for very young girls having marketing thrown at them. all I would like to throw into the ring though is that there is also a nasty subtheme in ads and movies of men being vastly more likely to be criminals. another interesting thing to consider is the expendability of men: any count you will do in a movie of shooting murders will find the guys dropping at about 100:1.

hey there. resonates. have to say though that if you are going to venture into gender representations, you need to look a bit wider. when was the last time you saw a female vicious mugger or a thief in advertising ? or a feller who is adept at cooking or changing babies?
