Baird goes on to document Fassbender's claims of his acceptance of femininity, and even as far as to credit it as crucial to the masculine construction. Fassbender's movie roles were also examined, disclosing that his choices of roles allow him the position
forth by Barbie, models, and mannequins, girls and women must also comply with given gender norms. Not only must they achieve an ideal body type, but also ideal femininity. As a result, several points must be addressed. Primarily, one ought to consider gender as an inherent biological distinction versus gender as an ongoing fabrication due to one’s actions.

they are all engaged in the theatre that is competition, and as a result sporting events can boast some of the largest audiences. But. how much of the actual game does an audience truly take in? The distractions at these events range from the advertisements on the actual playing surface and jumbotron screens, to the commercials viewers in the comfort of their own home endure when action on the field has reached a standstill. These fillers between the action range from Red Bull products asserting

In doing so, with the rise of the chilling Cold War, emphasis was placed on domestic roles.

They were deemed as sexual beings and were used not only as producers but also as reproducers, to replenish the enslaved population. This latter role was also perpetuated through the rape of enslaved African women by their white slave masters. Thus, the health of these women was negated for the welfare of the plantation system.

(Lonehead, ONLINE SOURCE, NO PAGE NUM) This essay studies the covert, market driven forces at work in our choices of images for the avatars inhabiting cyberspace, in order to understand the dangers of the exchange of self-images for advertisements. To forge a set of alternative resistant and forceful conditions for imaging what Sherry Turkle has termed "the second self," tactics based in imaging, language, and psychology can be opposed to the insidious and covert co-optation of the self
