Minding my own business, sitting calmly in class, talking nonchalantly about opportunity cost, and this ad was shown to illustrate the principal.
So, how does this make you feel? I have to admit, it felt a little bit demeaning to me. If I were a choice and the other option was a hamburger...
I just don't feel super good about being an object of pleasure.
Doesn't it seem like that's really how women are portrayed in the media? This is a soap box for me, so maybe I'll save the spiel for later.
And now, I think I had better introduce myself!
My name is Kristen. My favorite thing about my name is that Kristen means "follower of Christ." I hope with all my heart to be a disciple.
I am studying early child education at BYU, and I love music, running, writing, reading, pondering, philosophizing, and learning.
I am very passionate about the power of women and standing up for being strong in who we are, not just what we are. I believe in the divine role of womanhood and that simply being a woman makes you beautiful. I'm excited to be writing for Women's Services and know that I will learn and grow a lot as we contribute together to the strength and service of woman.
This is me. Reading T.S. Elliot, of course. I am really quite a quiet soul.
