I’m writing a paper this weekend on how media has influenced our culture’s definition of womanhood — specifically, how it’s come to equate “being a woman” with “being sexy.” I’ve downloaded and bookmarked a number of articles and e-books with eyebrow-raising titles, but the worst, by far, is a book that I got from our campus library entitled The Sexually Aggressive Woman.
1. I’m mildly amazed that such a book is even owned by my private, conservative Christian university.
2. Part of me wants to sit down and read that book in public just to see the looks I’d get.
