I thought this group did a great job with addressing the effects of media on girls’ self-esteem and how it’s not good how the media thinks it’s okay to let girls feel like it’s okay to live this false life. Michael gave great background information on how media has come a long way and what’s the way to describe beauty has changed overtime. I personally feel that media has a strong impact on the way girls feel about themselves. Fashion and the way you should look evolve every day. One minute, natural beauty is acceptable, and then the next minute you should have a bunch of makeup on your face looking like Krusty the Klown. I know as a female, I’ve even fallen into the hype of media influencing me. I’ll be honest, sometimes watching the videos of certain songs do make me want to change things. But then I realized that I’m comfortable in the skin I’m in and keeping up with the Joneses takes money and time. Girls and guys need to understand that this media world is not real. Those people are sometimes photo shopped and that’s not even their real bodies. I love the way Antonio had SoundBites of people that go to Dillard, and how they feel about media as well. It’s always good to get a second opinion on how someone feels about the same topic as you. Women need to know that we are all created in different sizes, colors, shapes, and everyone has something about them that makes them different, so why would you want to look like the next person. It’s really something to think about but overall, the group’s presentation was good, with really informative information about media affecting young women. Being a women myself, I felt like I could relate to this topic, so kudos to group 2.

I thought the human trafficking presentation was well put together. The group did an exceptional job with the information and the facts they gave regarding the topic. This is an issue that needs to seriously be addressed. I couldn’t fathom my child being kidnapped and used for sex and labor. It’s sad that some people agree with this and think that this issue is okay. The stories and movies that you watch are traumatizing as this really happens in everyday life. I would never want to live in those countries where human trafficking exists. The group had really informative information about human trafficking and the differences between labor trafficking and sex trafficking. I really feel that this issue needs to stop because people are to be treated as human beings; I look at human trafficking as a form of slavery, and I thought slavery ended a long time ago. It’s really a sad situation to hear, and know that girls as young as 6 years old are engaging in those types of activities, being forced to do that, and some parents are okay with their child being touched. This is a very unfortunate situation for some people. I’ve seen the movie Taken and its shows how people are out to lure you and sell you into that type of stuff. Luckily, the girl had a protective father that looked for her and got her back. With human trafficking, some children are taken and they will never see their loved ones again. The group also focused on the United States and India, which was informative. I knew children were abducted, but I didn’t think human trafficking was bad in the United States. It really was a shocker when Gary said that annually human trafficking brings in about 950 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money from no good people. The group really did a superb job of informing me and making me aware that this is a situation that needs to be addressed and stopped. I wish people had a heart to know that this is a hurtful situation to any parent that has to witness their child being used for labor reasons and for sexual reasons. More people need to be compassionate about this issue and use the Golden Rule
