media is affecting young females who are the audience for this source. Funkeson and Rowe have similar concepts as Jones. They all feel that the media affects the mental stability of young women.

I don’t feel like there are biases in this argument because the evidence shows the truth, which is the music industry effects young women’s self esteem and image. This is related to social justice because women are being depicted as sex objects and not as human beings. This article was written Feburary 10, 2010. This article is only two days old. So this shows u that this is still a very present topic affecting our society.

This article relates to what Dahlager and Funkeson says because they all feel that the new image that had been casted upon the music industry is negative because women should be respected and not treated as sex objects. The only bias that I think could be considered with this article is that Dr. James isn’t really too big a fan on hip-hop music.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
