Roxi Nicolussi- Barbie and Ken 101

Posted: November 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

This is one of my favourite videos/ raps. It gives me chills every time. I found that this video tied in a lot to the reading by Susan Bordo, “Hunger as Ideology”. Bordo’s text mentioned the pressures women face balancing health and society. She stresses that young girls are taught from an early age that they must be slim to be beautiful. They are taught that their ultimate goal is to NOT EAT or eat as little as possible. This rapper also realizes these pressures, but he is not in favour of them. He thinks that his girlfriend has a beautiful body naturally and it pains him to see her upset about weight.

What society has forgotten is that hunger is NATURAL and HEALTHY. No one should be fighting against their body in order to look a certain way for other people.
