Blog buddy work with Melissa author of "Gender and Race through Flavor of Love and Celebreality"

Where has your Blog buddy shown strong analytical work (be specific—is it a particular post, a type of analysis, a site for analysis that seemed to click more so than others, etc)?

How could your Blog buddy use this strength for the final Blog post and presentation?

Think about the following statements in relation to your Blog buddy’s Blog and then provide feedback on each area (constructive praise/criticism):

The Blog is on a topic that has been clearly evident in the Blog posts throughout the semester

The Blog is on a topic that seems to interest my Blog buddy

My Blog buddy’s topic is one that has produced a good set of posts that were analytical used gender as a primary category of analysis

The posts make analytical arguments.

The posts are understandable and each post logically outlines and supports the argument presented.

The posts were clear, provided insight, evidence, and analysis to connect the topic with the assignment for each of the posts

The sources cited in each post are relevant to the topic and help to aid the understanding of the argument and/or assisted in proving the argument.

The quotes used illustrate a broad range of course readings throughout the semester.

The quotes were clear and succinct; additionally, the material was presented so that I could differentiate the Blog buddy’s ideas from that of the author cited.

Finally, complete the following:I thought it was great when you...
I found it confusing when you…
You’re really great at…
I wish you could focus (more) on/alter/edit/explain/expand on/etc these three things…

(Basically, when you read the Blog posts, what do you wish your buddy had done differently, more of, etc?)

Jen - I think the post topic of a critical analysis of the media's obsession with motherhood and what makes a "good mother" was made for your topic! The constant judgment and critiques passed against the Girls Next Door are completely loaded with sexism when you compare it to the "boys will be boys" attitude taken with Hugh. There are so many relatable sources in the book to your topic, so you should definitely go beyond the required readings for your blog presentation!

The Girls Next Door represents the hegemonic discourse in pop culture well by portraying women as sex objects at the disposal of men, who ultimately run the show. Your knowledge of the show implies that you actually watch it and follow the characters, which is a good sign since that means you actually know what you're talking about. Being that the course analyzes gender, race, and class in the media, the Girls Next Door is a hotbed for analysis. It displays gender binaries, economic power at the disposal only of the man, and obvious racial inequalities: there's barely any girls with hair shade darker than honey blonde, let alone women of color being represented on the show. Why are blonde, white women the ideal sex object?

Basically I'm saying that your topic is very interesting, and you analyzed it well regarding the concepts and texts of the course, using relevant quotes where necessary.

My fill in the blanks:
I thought it was great when you: thought up catchy titles for your blog posts. They put mine to shame. It really incites interest in your blog.

I found it confusing when you: wrote your comment post to another blog's analysis, it seemed more of an agreement then counter-analysis.

You're really great at: getting your point across clearly and succinctly.

I wish you would focus on (expand on) these three things:
1. RACE! Where are the women (& men) of color in the Playboy lifestyle?!
2. Add a little more spice to the page by inserting relevant pictures in with your text, just to break up all the words.
3. Bring in the concept of the Madonna/whore dichotomy.

All in all, great blog, great topic!
