I was watching the documentary "Killing us softly" by Jean Kilbourne and it got me thinking whether or not young feminists might be conscious of the way media is used.

In other words, I would say my question is:

How are young feminists conscious of the use of sexuality and sexualized images of women in the media that consistently support and perpetuate traditional sex roles and sexual identities, and actively strive to make sense of manipulative media techniques in their world?

    Generally speaking, most young people are quite naive, having been conditioned from the cradle to obey without questioning, some sort of authority or another. And many if not most adults are nearly as naive and compliant as children, having never really grown up to full intellectual and emotional maturity. So one may extrapolate from that plus personal experience, that most young people are unaware of how the media manipulates them. Males are equally targeted with relevant indoctrination into various socio-political and economic agendas, including the patriarchy, military, and corporate state. – Bread Mar 16 at 1:25

    In our economy practically everything and anything is for sale and may be considered commodities, which in itself presents many drawbacks and disadvantages to a lot of people (the vast majority, I would argue). – Bread Mar 16 at 1:27
