Club explores gender and sexuality in popular American sitcom

first_imgMen Against Sexual Violence, or MASV, hosted a screening and panel-led open discussion Monday night focusing on gender and sexuality in one of the most popular episodes of American television sitcom “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”“What struck me, apart from everything, is … there’s a list of guidelines that you follow: You follow these rules, you get what you want,” Aman Mital, MASV officer, said.“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” is a show following a group of friends that run a bar in Philadelphia. The show is known for its cringe-worthy, offensive humor, as well as “the gang’s” shared vanity and cluelessness about women. In the episode discussed during the panel — “The D.E.N.N.I.S. System” — Dennis, one of the friends, explains his “fool-proof system for getting any chick’s undying love and affection for life.”Mital said the members of MASV visited the Reddit page devoted to pick-up techniques for men. What they found was surprising.“It’s a joke in the show … the things in it are so horrendous that we think that no one would ever do something like that, but that’s the actual technique for a lot of people,” Mital said.According to their mission, MASV is a group dedicated to taking responsibility for men’s role in sexual violence – not just physical, but emotional as well. An aspect of sexual violence that was discussed was the objectification of women by men. Panel member John Johnstin, assistant director of the Gender Relations Center, related the “D.E.N.N.I.S. system” to Ford’s assembly line.“A system is set up to work with interchangeable objects … if you’re running a system, are you actually dealing with individuals? Or are they just interchangeable objects that are there for that purpose?” Johnstin said.The perpetuation of this system in society, Johnstin said, harms both men and women. The discussion touched on how Dennis’s system affects his sister Dee’s perception of her own well-meaning boyfriend’s actions.The discussion delved into the sense of brotherhood seen, for example, in Fisher Hall’s “we are fishermen” chant, Siegfried Hall’s antics in the first pep rally or the hyper-masculinity of the Keenan Revue dance numbers.Finally, the discussion turned to the line between endearing persistence and stalking, as seen in the character Charlie’s seemingly innocent, but ultimately detrimental relationship with a waitress he claims he is in love with. “There’s a difference between wanting to be there for someone, and being obsessive … what you’re really saying is, ‘I don’t care what you want, it’s about me,’” Mital said.Keenan Hall rector Noel Terranova finished the discussion with a call to action.“If there is going to be someone on this campus who does something, has one meaningful interaction that can positively impact someone’s life or prevent something negative from happening, it’s going to be you, yourselves. So I would ask you to do just that, to really engage in this conversation.” Tags: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Men against Sexual violence, misogyny, showlast_img read more

Finding Neverland , Mandy Patinkin & Taylor Mac to Headline A.R.T. 2014-15 Season

first_img Star Files Mandy Patinkin Matthew Morrison This November, O.P.C., a new play by Ensler (The Vagina Monologues) will begin performances. O.P.C. stands for obsessive political correctness and follows the story of a liberal mom running for office and her daughter, a left-wing radical. View Comments Tony winner Patinkin and Mac will bring The Last Two People on Earth: An Apocalyptic Vaudeville, which was seen off-Broadway last year, to the venue in May 2015. Directed and choreographed by five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman, this abstract two-man show follows the story of a flood of biblical proportions that leaves us with only two people on Earth (Patinkin and Mac).center_img Peter’s back! According to The New York Times, a revamped version of Finding Neverland will kick off the 2014-15 season at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge this July, with its sights set on Broadway and the West End. The season will also feature Mandy Patinkin and Taylor Mac in The Last Two People on Earth: An Apocalyptic Vaudeville, a new play by Eve Ensler, a new opera and an encore of The Light Princess. Laura Michelle Kelly Other shows on the season’s slate include an encore of The Light Princess over the holidays, a new play in February 2015, details of which will be announced in due course, and a new Civil War based opera, helmed by Paulus, beginning in May 2015, inspired by a diary kept by Walt Whitman. As previously reported, an industry-only workshop of Finding Neverland took place this month with a cast that included Main Stem vets Matthew Morrison and Laura Michelle Kelly. A spokesman for A.R.T. said that Morrison will not take part in the Cambridge production because of his Glee commitments and that no other casting news was available. Finding Neverland has had a troubled history. The Harvey Weinstein produced tuner overhauled its entire creative team in 2013, bringing on board A.R.T artistic director Diane Paulus, composer Gary Barlow and playwright James Graham. It made its world premiere at Leicester’s Curve Theatre in September 2012 after canceling its fall 2011 debut at La Jolla Playhouse.last_img read more

Paulinho plots win over Liverpool

first_img But the Black Cats were unable to make it to the break unscathed and the visitors were back in it within six minutes when Paulinho stabbed home from close range from Nacer Chadli’s header back across goal. Paulinho said: “I scored again and I am very happy about getting one more goal. But everybody in the group, my colleagues played very well also.” Spurs needed just five minutes of the second half to wrap up the win when Mousa Dembele powered his way past Jack Colback on the left and then saw his cross cannon off O’Shea and past goalkeeper Vito Mannone. They should really have been out of sight with Jermain Defoe twice hitting the post and firing wide with just Mannone to beat, and they might have been made to pay had referee Lee Mason awarded a 75th-minute penalty after substitute Sandro appeared to block Sebastian Larsson’s corner with his arm. However, he did not and Tottenham managed to see out time with few scares to claim the win. Paulinho has set his sights on Liverpool as Tottenham look to take a decisive step forward in their quest for Champions League football. Press Association The 25-year-old Brazilian scored in Spurs’ 2-1 fightback win at Sunderland on Saturday evening to complete a good week for manager Andre Villas-Boas, who had found himself under pressure in the wake of his team’s 6-0 trouncing at Manchester City last month. A 2-2 home draw with Manchester United and wins at Fulham and on Wearside have more than steadied the ship and left the Londoners just three points adrift of Brendan Rodgers’ second-placed side, who head for White Hart Lane on Sunday. Paulinho told Spurs TV: “It’s a big game at home and we must think that if we play the same as we did against United, we have a big chance to win at home against Liverpool.” Villas-Boas has set his sights on a top-four finish, and is refusing to look any further ahead than that in the wake of an improved run of form. Asked if he may has to re-assess his targets given that Spurs have closed the gap on Liverpool, he replied: “It’s still very compact at the moment. “Arsenal have gone a distance. Obviously Arsenal have three important fixtures in the next games with Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton, but we just want to be near them and get ourselves into the Champions League positions. “At the moment, we are fighting our way back, but we want to be there at the end of the season.” Victory at the Stadium of Light was secured courtesy of John O’Shea’s second-half own goal, although in truth, the visitors should have won far more comfortably. However, they had to come from behind to claim the points after Gus Poyet’s bottom-of-the-table side took the lead after a lukewarm start to the game. Hugo Lloris flapped at Ondrej Celustka’s 37th-minute cross to allow Adam Johnson to slam the loose ball into the top corner. last_img read more

Heaney is in the mix to be the Opening Day starter on March 26 at Houston. “If it’s me, that would be awesome,” said the left-hander, who has never made a start before April 13 in his career. “… If I make the first start of the year, or the fifth start of the year, that, to me, is a win. I just haven’t been able to do that.” … Relievers Keynan Middleton, Mike Mayers and Jose Rodriguez all gave up at least one run, but Maddon was satisfied with the performances. … Left-handers Jose Quijada and Hector Yan each pitched a scoreless inning.HITTING REPORT: Hermosillo hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning, his first of the spring, and had four RBIs. He also had a stolen base, giving the Angels eight in 11 spring games. … Matt Thaiss had a hit in his fourth consecutive spring game going back to Friday. … Mike Trout went 0 for 2 but is still hitting .364 this spring. … Victor Acosta gave the Angels the lead in the eighth inning when he scored on a wild pitch, while Connor Justis added another run on a wild pitch in the inning.DEFENSIVE REPORT: It’s hard to catch Trout off guard, even in spring training. Reyes tried to stretch a base hit into a double in the fourth inning, but Trout threw him out from left-center field, with Jahmai Jones applying the tag at second base.
