Exercise 1
Write a brief (one paragraph) summary of the Pope’s article “Evolving Ideals of Male Body Images…” What is the focus of the article, and what are the researchers’/authors’ findings? How have male Action toys changed over the last 3-4 decades? According to the authors, what is the larger, cultural significance of these changes? Now, in a second paragraph, provide your own opinion. Considering that little boys (and possibly girls) will play with these toys, why are these changes significant?
Exercise 2
In “Evolving Ideals of Male Body Image …,” the authors conclude that the results of their study of male action figures suggest that there is a “relationship between cultural messages and body image disorders” (i.e., self-consciousness, or feelings of inadequacy, about one’s body) in men and women. Using information from the tables and images accompanying the article, as well as information from Barry’s essay (“The Ugly Truth About Beauty”), McLaughlin’s essay (“Venus Envy,” an observation of your own, try to build a case to support this conclusion. What are some of the “cultural messages,” and their sources, that each of these essays highlight that could lead to “body image disorders”? For an observation of your own, check the Barbie website (www.barbie.com).
