Question about Feminist .

Since we have talked about Feminist in the class,I had a question which is "Is feminism dividing our society?"

Today we see many feminist groups with their hardline attitude. It seems that they want women to dominate the world and don't want men to have a say.

I hard that this especially hurtful in India because we still value our culture and marital union. Gentle and accepting behaviour is the tradition of indian women. By going aggressive, are they actually losing their feminine qualities?

Also, if women have same rights as men, then why do we need women's rights? Should they be included in human rights? What is more satisfying for a woman to have a happy husband and family? Can a job be better than family and marriage?

I'm don't know about it exactry.
But I think Feminism dividing our society.

If women need the same rights as men, why women need a special rights/reservations?
I think it's the reservation system to be removed and it should be general only.
I believe in India the Indian Women are enjoying the real freedom in mind and life as there are no restrictions, and they are enjoying the same rights as of men.

Once if we give a separate privilege,rights,reservation to a special community-not as religion it will divide our society as the disturbances in mind will growing up due to these things...

Give equal rights, but not give one with more rights,reservations...
Anywhere in the world, to have a happy husband/wife and family will be more satisfying for men/women, than any other things.

I think obviously the culture, traditions and marital union will collapse when one get more than other. Most of western/other countries not having this much family values like India, so they can raise their voice for feminism.

I want to know what you guys think about this?


President Obama!!

Barack Obama is now the President of the United States of America . I'm so excited!!!

Well for one thing, I really think that he is a very intelligent man, and he has a good understanding of the problems facing America.

Many Japanese friends ask me, “Will President Obama be able to fix America?” Well, I couldn't ansuwer completely. But he will do his best to repair some things, and I think that he was the best choice of all people running in the past election.

But I think that Japan will be playing a more active role in the future Japanese/American relationship. During the Cold War, and since then, military security has always been at the top of the agenda for the Japanese and American governments.

However, in my opinion, the greatest dangers facing the planet are Climate Change, and depletion of oil resources. A secondary danger is financial collapse.

When I lived in Japan, almost everyday, the media tals about Climate Change. I'm not sure but I think that very few American people really understand the dangers posed by Climate Change. I hard that they think that we are merely in a cycle, things will soon return to normal.

And here is the problem with President Obama. People do understand that the Bush administration did create a lot of problems. But they expect that the new President, Barack Obama, will make everything the same as it was before.

Howevery, I think that is not possible. The financial crisis will become even worse in America this year. President Obama understands this. In his inaugural speech, has said that people must be responsible in their business practices.

Now, not only is there a crisis of unemployment, there is also a housing crisis with people being unable to afford their homes. The number of homeless people, many of them families, is rapidly increasing.

Many people are expecting President Obama to bring satisfaction; I think they will be surprised when he tells them that they have to change their lives if the nation is to survive. But this is necessary.

And Barack Obama is the best man for the job.


Media and Advertising

Hello, how are you guys? It’s Little Asian Asumi from your COMM 2010 class. This is my first time to post for real assignment!! I researched relationship between Media and Advertising on the inter-net. It was very interesting to know that stuffs and I will keep researching about this topic.

One of the thing, I found good quote which is my favorite one,

"Advertising is the art of arresting the human intelligence just long enough to get money from it."

— Chuck Blore, a partner in the advertising firm Chuck Blore & Don Ruchman, Inc., quoted by Ben H. Bagdikian, The Media Monopoly, Sixth Edition, (Beacon Press, 2000), p.185.

I definitely understand and agree with this quote. In Japan, it’s same that advertising is very important for broadcast companies to get money. However, there day many people watch more inter-net rather than TV. So, the TV Company couldn’t get enough money for broadcast. One of the article said, “In America, TV audience’s average age of is fifteen-four year old. I was so surprise this number. The reasons why that biggest cause is internet become more common. Indeed internet is very convenience and you can use any time you what. So I think that internet is getting more common more than TV or any other mass media. And people using TV decrease next 10 years I think.


First Post it!!
