After our discussion about the Male Gaze in class, I had remembered a friend of mine showing me this video from transformers that is the epitome of the male gaze. Living in New York, we are constantly exposed to advertisements sexualizing women, and a lot of us can’t walk down the street without being stared at or having to hear a comment about our appearance. I think that the male gaze is something that doesn’t get talked about enough because sexualizing women has become such a norm in today’s society. Fulfilling the male gaze is so prevalent in movies and television that a lot of people don’t even notice it anymore. Movie posters will feature half naked women and trailers will make sure to show a little bit of sex to help fulfill the gaze. When you pass by ads and movie posters, do you take notice to the sexualizing of women, or are you so used to it that you don’t even realize?
