Double Standard for TV Advertising on Male and Female Sexuality

September 18, 2010

Advertising for products that enhance a man's sexual arousal are rampant on TV these days.  But guess how the TV networks are reacting to ads for a product to increase a woman's sexual pleasure.  They are freaking out and running for cover. 

Here's the NY Times story that says a lot about the double standard our culture has about male and female sexuality.  Women's bodies are displayed everywhere as sexual stimulants, but talking about women's own sexual pleasure is to scary for mainstream culture!  Wow.  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/14/business/media/14adco.html

 

AS POVERTY SPREADS CHILDREN SUFFER

September 17, 2010

American children sleeping in cars.  Missing school.  Going to bed hungry night after night.  We are losing an entire generation of children. 

Why is there so little discussion of the impact on long-term joblessness on children, asks Judith Sandalow, Exec. Director of the Children's Law Center. 

This is another example of why we need more mothers at the table of power and decision-making.  Mothers who will feed our children and care for our children FIRST!  

Here's columnist Diane Tucker's interview with Sandalow.    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/diane-tucker/judith-sandalow-we-are-lo_b_719323.html

USA Today Sports Columnist Comments on Harassment of Female Reporter

September 16, 2010

Christine Brennan, USA Today sports columnist and ABC Sports commentator, is one of the most respected sports journalists in the country.  She began earning her stripes decades ago.  There are many idiots speaking out this week on the question of whether women reporters should be allowed in men's lockerrooms.   Brennan's is a voice of experience and authority. 

 

Here's what she has to say.  And to get a sense of just how much emotion this topic has stirred up, look at the pages and pages of blog comments that follow Christine's column.

Weighing in on NY Jets Harassment of TV Azteca Sports Reporter

September 15, 2010

It was 30 years ago that I walked into my first sports• locker room as a TV reporter. 

It was 25 years ago that the NFL issued a policy that all team locker rooms would be open to credentialed journalists regardless of gender. 

 It was 20 years ago this week that one of the worst episodes of vulgar behavior toward a female sports reporter occurred when several New Englad Patriots accosted reporter Lisa Olsen

And it was just a few months ago that USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan told me, "Talking about whether women should go into sports locker rooms today is like discussing whether women should have the right to vote.  That was settled decades ago."

And now come a few boorish idiots from the New York Jets who harassed Ines Sainz, a TV Azteca sports reporter.  Is this really where we are in 2010?  Yep!  There are several sides to this issue, particularly:

•       There is no excusing this as boys will be boys behavior.  Sexual harassment and discrimination are illegal in the U.S.  A sports locker room is not the players' private bedroom.  It's a workplace environment.

•       TV networks are muddling this issue by increasingly hiring gorgeous, voluptuous women for these jobs because they WANT sports fans (particularly men!) to watch them.  They are not trained journalists but hybrids:           part reporter, part entertainer.

•       Plus, there's a multi-cultural piece to this.  If you've ever watched the women newscasters on Univision or spent any times in Latin American countries, you're aware that women -- of all ages -- routinely dress much more provocatively than we do here.  Ines Sainz was dressed for her job, which includes being a "hot babe," which is why she got the job over other female journalists.

It's a hot topic. Here's a radio interview I did this week with WJR Radio. http://www.wjr.net/Article.asp?id=1951686&spid=34612
