The media constantly misrepresents men and women. For women, however, this can be especially damaging. Young girls are conditioned through the television, movies, magazines, and popular music to believe that their only value comes from their sexuality. Sexual liberation is a good thing, yes, but a mind is even better. Boys also are conditioned to believe that a girl's worth is solely dependent upon her looks. The media does a fantastic job of demonizing women who take a stand against such terrible misrepresentations. Rush Limbaugh's latest rant about Sandra Fluke is but a potent example of how the media can continue to pollute the minds of many into thinking Feminism (and the issues dealing with it) are something they most certainly are not.
