I knew I'd walk out of class and start thinking of things that men have done that can't be misconstrued as feminine. And though I'm still having trouble coming up with something, I found something coincidental. I was up late last night reading Representations, and my cousins in California asked what I was up to. I explained what I was reading and then I got this email from them this morning after class.
Remember Anchorman? Can you believe people are overanalyzing the movie? What message? The movie was just funny. Hope this helps you for your class.
Apparently the IFC feels there's more to Judd Apatow than just comedy. He subtly includes what I've come to understand as "anxious masculinity," where women enter the ring and threaten the Boys-Only club. Not only the IFC feels this though. Texas Christian University will have a panel discussing this as well. Am I crazy or are there panels happening out there in the world based on our syllabus while we're in class Tuesday and Thursday mornings?
