My project responds to an offensive ad displaying a child as a sexual object. The ad I found had communicated this sense of pedophilia and that it is acceptable; However, I disagree with that idea. The message my artwork sends is that pedophilia is not okay. I started with generating ideas using a words web and asking random people around me what they thought of when they heard specific words. After I made the web I started to keep a list of any ideas that came to mind for my art project. The list started with a lot of ideas of how to include the symbols into my work and slowly started to become more specific and detailed. I started coming up with ideas such as dressing a teddy bear up as a sexual object and that be my piece and then I thought of the idea of using photography as my media.
Sexual imagery has become a trend in the business of advertisement, which has become extremely efficient. Tom Reichert in “The Prevalence of Sexual Imagery in Ads Target to Young Adults,” states in his journal, “To determine if advertisers use sexual imagery to appeal to youth, 2,863 ads in magazines read by young and mature adults were compared. Results indicate that ads targeted to young adults were 65% more likely to contain provocatively dressed models and 128% more likely to contain sexual behavior than those for mature adults. In the ads young adults, female models were 3.7 times more likely to be portrayed sexually than were male models. The findings suggest that advertisers use sexual imagery, primarily by means of female modes, to appeal to young audiences.”
It’s been a common practice of American society to shame sexual promiscuity while simultaneously using sex and sexual innuendos to sell everything from music to shampoo. When big companies use this ad tactic it surprises people and angeries the feminists of the internet; even though it’s been a practice since ads started targeting more than one demographic. Why are women’s panties so sexualized? If you think about it, they’re just a piece of cotton-spandex cloth with some lace or a bow. Advertisers have taken this sexualization and ran with it and it plays into the beauty myth, “During the past decade, women breached the power structure… eating disorder [cases] rose exponentially and cosmetic surgery became the fastest growing medical specialty…
Should advertisements targeting children be banned in the United States, no it shouldn't. We're still being advertise where ever we go, whether its school, the internet, bill boards. It's up to the parents to teach their children, teens what's from right to wrong.
Browsing around looking for print advertisements was a lot easier when it involved a female. Most advertisement tend to objectify, dehumanize and dismember women. Women are objectified by minimizing their body parts into objects. We constantly see it in the media where women are put or placed in sexual positions, their body parts are related to sex that is why we are viewed as sex objects. In some advertisements there is always one women and more men portraying power and control over the female. In the film Tough Guise we see Jackson Kats explain that society thinks that violent behavior from men is acceptable. We always think boys will be boys so we accept their strong attitudes. We think it is normal since men are taught to not be emotional.
Objectifying the human body has become normal in popular culture, and adults are not the only ones suffering psychological issues, like eating disorders, because of it. With so many mediums, an attempt to block sexualized content from children becomes difficult. “Sexualize” is not to be confused with “sexual” or “sexuality”. Merriam Webster defines the term as, “to make sexual; endow with a sexual character or quality.” An appalling fact is that the more unscrupulous an advertisement is, the better, and advertisers have moved on from naked adult bodies in ads, to naked children. Advertisements in malls, mannequins wearing thongs and panties, video games with big breasted and scantily clad women, television shows, movies, commercials, the list is vexingly long. Sex sells, and the use of shocking imagery has always made companies stand out negatively, particularly when it involves sexualizing children.
Men are the clear target of the marketing of trucks. This direct marketing is beginning at an age much younger than ever before. Eric Schlosser writes how advertising aimed towards children has changed and grown to include, “…phone companies, oil companies and automobile companies…” (1) and as young boys grow Schlosser points out that “During the course of a year, he [or she] watches more than thirty thousand TV commercials.” (4) Masculine images throughout childhood has an impact on what is considered normal in the eyes of the typical consumer of a truck. According to MarketingSchools.org, “…truck ads speak directly to the experience of being a workingman. They appeal to any man that has wanted to get his hands dirty, flee the city,
Therefore there are many reasons why teacher who are involve in teaching children with ADS should have a specific skills in teaching them with different types of strategies that would be useful in the future. Teaching a child with ADS would be different than teaching a child with normal ability as it said that the cognitive brain development of a child that suffers from ADS is slower compared to a normal child with normal brain capability and understanding. According to one of the researcher in the journal that I have chosen, Simpson (2005) said that he warns that professionals’ and caregivers’ reliance on untested methods and dependence on strategies that have limited evidence have resulted in unrealistic and unreasonable expectations for students and have hindered the potential progress of students with ASD. In some of the situation, some of them out of their own awareness, they might be out of their social cues and interaction.

Advertisements targeting children should be banned in the United States. Children do not understand that companies will do anything to make money. Companies do not care if they are making kids fat or selling then cheap toys. As long as they are making their money then they are happy. That is not right or fair to parents. Children do not have jobs. Therefore parents are responsible for buying their kids what they need and want. When a child views these advertisements all they see is the pictures that come with it. Companies spend a lot of time creating advertisements that will lure young children into wanting whatever it is they are advertising. Children are to young to relize that not everything is what it seems to be. I understand that a businesses
Some of the red flags in this advertisement are promise of stress reduction in less than thirty minutes (30mins) that is too good to be true, testimonials and anecdotes from paid actors, get a free one month supply, and a disclaimer, “Individual results may vary”, on the bottom of the screen. All of these red flags are signs of misinformation about Nutrition Supplement Serenex.
“Sex sells,” is a popular marketing adage which to some may be vulgar, and to others it may be appealing, but are sexually charged images enough to make an advertisement campaign successful? In December 2009, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) partnered with Joanna Krupa to make a semi-nude advertisement campaign entitled ‘Angles for Animals’. The advertisement had the aim of encouraging consumers to adopt their pet instead of buying (Joanna Krupa). While the PETA advertisement is successful in capturing people’s attention, it fails to target the correct audience. By targeting the wrong audience PETA has made a critical error which may affect how people respond to the advertisement’s call to action.

Television today would not be what it is if commercials were not there. Commercials help pay for the expensive cost it take to run the programs. Nobody wants television to go away from them or their kids, but the truth is, cost are more expensive on kid networks because the requirements the government puts on them. Many people think that children should not be exposed to advertisements are best for kids, but kids need exposure to them to help the corporations and the program cost, plus there are kid products that can help the child mature. If my kid did not have tv they would just cry and be sad because they would not have anything to do, nobody wants a kid cry.
In our propaganda project we incorporated many effective techniques. Two of which are testimonial and loaded or emotional words. We had a celebrity endorsement from the great and powerful Mrs. Chen. We used specific wording and phrases to inflict fear upon the readers. These types of propaganda have proven to be effective in the past. Celebrity testimonials usually appeal to younger audiences, while fear and disgust can be effective for people of all ages. Mrs. Chen said, “Eyes are said to be the key to your soul...who wants someone looking in your soul?” This should confuse people just enough so that it makes some sense. For the fear aspect of our propaganda, we say that eye-contact is impolite, can spread disease, can worsen your eyesight,
