Well, since there is a thread on on Feminism in literature, and in the media in general, there needs to be one violence and sex, specifically I think an interesting relationship between each other. To start off, notice how the United States, as a culture, minds sexuality much more than violence, while in Europe, this is reversed. Why is this? Well, I think it's because in the U.S., violence has become a sort of, acceptable substitute for sex, not saying that the U.S. doesn't utilize sexuality a lot in media, however for some reason we hide it in a sense. In Japan, both violence and sex are fine, judging by what's allowed in shonen(which means media meant for boys I think in Japanese kind of). To elaborate a little bit, in France I saw a picture of a woman topless on a city street, very open. That would never be allowed in the United States. Why? Just food for thought. I have to go somewhere, but when I get back, I'll elaborate on my case much more. I do hope I get some thoughts on both of these subjects while I'm gone. Sorry if this is way too broad striking for a single topic.
