Rachel, MIT sophomore, Course 7 (biology), dancer. I’m sure more will come out later.
For my first post I don’t really want to talk about Miley Cyrus anymore, as I have nothing to add, but I do want to share this really cool gender-flipped version of “Blurred Lines.” While the “Defined Lines” parody is based on the song but with different lyrics/shots, this gender-flipped version is an exact replica of the original, except for that the women are singing and the men are prancing around in their underwear. It’s strange to see men performing the actions we generally ascribe to “sexy women”, and (for me) it’s an even better critique of the messed up gender dynamics in the song and video.
On a more logistical note: final project idea already? Christian Patriarchy/Quiverfull movements, online presence both against and for (don’t know as much about the latter), elder daughters leaving, their current religious beliefs, blog networks for religious/personal support, combining old ideas and new media to create a unique community, etc.
That’s all for now, I think. Next post – my (gender related) thoughts about Sherlock? (WATCH OUT FOR THAT ONE WOW I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS OKAY)
