ARIEL LEVY FEMALE CHAUVINIST PIGS PDF

Publisher: Free Press 3. A few days ago I watched a documentary on porn and the effects it has on relationships and societies. FCP was an intense book, many parts of it made me angry and other parts made me feel ashamed for what I have done that, according to Levy, makes me a FCP and yet other parts made me question if what she was saying is really true to society. Girls Gone Wild is a particular interest of hers and she cites that as one of the major ways in which women are subjecting their bodies as a viewing pleasure men and therefore backing up the common stereotype presented in porn and the sex industry, that women are sexual beings that only want to please men. In the afterward section of the book she claims that she is not against porn though that was not the impression I got from reading the entire book.

If male chauvinist pigs of years past thought of women as pieces of meat, Female Chauvinist Pigs of today are doing them one better, making sex objects of other women—and of themselves. In her quest to uncover why this is happening, Levy interviews college women who flash for the cameras on spring break and teens raised on Paris Hilton and breast implants.

She examines a culture in which every music video seems to feature a stripper on a pole, the memoirs of porn stars are climbing the bestseller lists, Olympic athletes parade their Brazilian bikini waxes in the pages of Playboy, and thongs are marketed to prepubescent girls.

Levy pulls apart the myth of the Female Chauvinist Pig and argues that what has come to pass for liberating rebellion is actually a kind of limiting conformity. Irresistibly witty and wickedly intelligent, Female Chauvinist Pigs makes the case that the rise of raunch does not represent how far women have come, it only proves how far they have left to go.

Ariel Levy (journalist)

She says, "So I think people who choose to pose for the magazine have a very definite idea of what they want to get out of it - and then they have a life and they may be an actress or a mother or a lawyer or an executive. Putting your tush on display is still not the best way to make partner or impress the board. I think Levy is guilty of going after the wrong force. What Christie accomplishes by talking about the desires of women to feel sexy in that way, she actually uses the example of a woman who was injured in a car accident and became paraplegic and posed for the magazine to regain her own sense of sexuality is exactly what Levy advocates in the conclusion. The conclusion admits that there is nothing intrinsically wrong with posing for a magazine or stripping.

Levy disagrees with this view, criticizing such lipstick feminists as those involved in the CAKE organization, which provides sexually oriented entertainment for women. Objectification is rooted in disrespect, condescending views of the opposite gender, and power struggles. When men realise that they have the capability to fundamentally respect women, and women realise that they have the power to present themselves as empowered, fully capable people, raunch culture may moan its last and final faked orgasm. Not all of the women who have appeared in the magazine have careers in modeling; many are celebrities such as singers and actresses or athletes, for example.
