Hire Writer And for that, this paper will explain food insecurity not in the same manner that other food insecurity papers would have discussed this issue in impoverished countries. This assessment will be the conclusion of this paper. When putting ideologically loaded messages in the light, a strong focus on the different paradigms of reality and simulations must be taken care of, and should be well defined Bordo However, the question is, can those who are exposed in these situations fully decipher those that should be discerned as reality and those that should remain as simulations? If yes, what is the extent of its effects on those who are exposed with it? If not, are these people simply helpless in entering a trance towards honing themselves in similar fashion with that of the simulation?

Girls learn at a young age that being slim is beautiful and they start thinking about tricks on how to achieve that beauty. With a lot of relevant examples Bordo is focusing on locating gender disparities in advertising and the effects that these commercials have on women body, behavior and psychology. Does she eat? The second picture is an ad for a famous brand name and even if it does not say anything about being skinny it is hard to miss how tiny the model is. As grown ups we know that this is not real and it still influences us, imagine what an influence has on children who look up to movie stars and models.

This is how eating disorders start and it looks like not much has changed since Bordo first criticised commercials. Women have been fighting for their rights for a long time, they want to be free and in control of their decisions, their life and of course their body. Contemporary advertisements take advantage of this desire and include the idea of control in their ads.

This ad is inviting women to celebrate their freedom and to exercise their rights by smoking Virginia Slim Menthol. Even if this is an ad for cigarettes there is still a connection to food and body image. When I get to a fork in the road, I eat. I strive for it. Women are still looking for control and models are skinnier than ever. Advertisements are made not only to sell products but But of course now modern people have changed their opinions and thoughts almost on everything, advertisement included.

And they have changed also. In "Hunger as Ideology", Susan Bordo talks about her view on commercials and gives us the gender-dualities, which she thinks are traditional for ads. In her essay Bordo examined the historical stereotype of women; the portrayals that have arrested them, turning their psychological makeup into something destructive to their health, and yet, supported by society.

It seems that to be thin is a goal for most women and as Bordo points out, it is the result of advertisements and a public image of women maintaining a number of roles, including that of server and of the sexually repressed. I, for one, mostly agree with Bordo. I presume that she would want Madison Avenue advertising firms to market items on terms other than sex appeal, the ability of a product to make a person seem more interesting, etc.


Hunger as Ideology

In her essay, Bordo makes is clear to her audience that food is gendered. What does this mean? The story is about a dystopian world whose hero becomes a year-old white female, Katniss Everdeen. The country is composed of 12 districts that are dictated by the Capitol. In The Hunger Games, Collins creates a futuristic society of severe class inequality in which the children of the poor are killed for the political benefit and entertainment of the rich. Furthermore, the role of ISA, known as the Ideological State Apparatus, functions by an ideology which includes family, legal, political, trade union, communication, culture, education and religious Althusser,
