Dating is no exception: Swiped takes a look at how apps like Tinder and Grindr, Bumble, Hinge and others are changing how and why we hook up. In locations ranging from New York to Southern California, Austin TX, and small Midwestern towns, the filmmakers interview mostly college kids and people just out of college to talk about how even a simple thing like meeting over coffee or a drink has been rendered obsolete by the virtual buffet of potential dates these apps offer.

Also interviewed is one of the co-founders of Tinder, the co-founder of Bumble, and the co-founder of Hinge. Probably whatever the last documentary that described our society as going to hell in a handbasket because of how people date. Swiped is the first directorial effort from journalist Nancy Jo Sales, and we can see the journalistic approach she takes in this documentary.

She tries to cover as much ground as she possibly can in the minute runtime, and only scratches the surface on any one issue. But when Sales focuses her camera on a person like Cheyenne, a perfectly attractive and dynamic young woman who feels so much pressure to look good on dating apps and social media, it has killed her self-esteem, we want to see more.

The Making of Game’s “The Documentary”

That’s not an opinion. It’s taken data straight out of a Bureau of Labor Statistics report. At Boston College a Catholic university in the Jesuit spirit undergraduates are hooking up. That’s certainly a problem but it’s not THE problem which is that administrators at BC and most other Catholic universities and colleges, as a matter of fact, stand idly by thinking “Well, this is how kids are today.

There’s absolutely nothing we can do about it. The hookup culture is absolutely crazy!

A combination of the prevalent “hook up” culture, as well as the preferred method of social interaction (texting) had all but obliterated skills of basic social interaction.

Tweet A student sits at a desk, running their fingers through their hair and appearing stressed as they write in a notebook with their other hand. Another student is out of focus in the background. Unfortunately, many people disagree that rape culture at universities and colleges is a widespread issue. This is because many forms of rape culture are normalized in our society.

Rape culture is defined really well on Wikipedia as follows: Educational institutions are no exception. It simply means that it manifests in different ways. Orientation, Traditions, and Initiation From cheers and war cries that gleefully describe raping others, to initiation ceremonies where students are expected to have sex, a number of traditions and initiation rituals during university orientation are demonstrative of rape culture. The topic of initiation also brings into question the idea of force.

Don’t punish the rest of us From: You An act by an unstable individual should not reflect on all the responsible and law abiding citizens. Our privileges and rights are precious and should be defended, because once lost may never be restored. Farmers, hunters and sport shooters should not be punished because of isolated incidents.

Maui was a demi-god, who lived in Hawaiiki. He possessed magic powers that not all of his family knew about. One day when he was very young, he hid in the bottom of his brothers’ boat in order to go out fishing with them. Once out at sea, Maui was discovered by his brothers, but they were not able to take him back to shore as Maui made use of his magic powers, making the shoreline seem much further away than it was in reality. So the brothers continued rowing, and once they were far out into the ocean Maui dropped his magic fishhook over the side of the waka.

After a while he felt a strong tug on the line. This seemed to be too strong a tug to be any ordinary fish, so Maui called to his brothers for assistance. Maui told his brothers that the Gods might be angry about this, and he asked his brothers to wait while he went to make peace with the Gods.

Students Speak Out Against the ‘Hook-Up Culture’

Directed by James Houston, the special takes a fresh, raw, and confronting look at attitudes towards sex and sexuality among America’s youth, as well as the differences between Europe and America when it comes to adolescent sexuality. Every day, 10, young Americans catch a sexually transmitted disease, young girls get pregnant, and 55 young people are infected with HIV. Traveling through the US, the Australian-born Houston goes on a journey to understand common trends with sex and sexuality, and profiles young Americans who share their personal perspectives, including:

Hook up culture documentary A- A A+ Introduction chapter 1, unflinching film was nothing positive and a similar to save their spring break, – liberated: is the hookup culture explained.

Tweet on Twitter Liberated: The enlightening documentary sheds some light on the college hookup culture during Spring Break in Panama City, Florida. Available now, exclusively on Netflix, the film is making the rounds of the college lecture circuit. Hopefully, the film will lead to an open discussion of the hook-up culture, which seems to work really great for the guys, but not so much for the girls. The film follows the journey of college students gone wild during Spring Break, and the way young guys behave in the film towards women is scary.

Apparently, these guys got their sex education by watching hardcore gang bang porn. Apparently, according to teenage hook-up culture, being a gentleman is no longer considered cool. My Mother just asked me what motorboat meant, and I told her its when a drunk guy put his lips between you boobs and moves his head back and forth.

Oh, and just say no to going to Spring Break. What I found most interesting, because I already knew that dudes on Spring Break try to bang as many chicks as possible, was the lack of self-esteem of the young women, averaging , which seemed pretty low. During one scene, a bikini contest where women twerk to get applause and beads from the binge-drinking bros, the M. Afterwards the filmmakers interview the girls who participated in the archaic sexist contest, and asked them what they liked about it.

The girls said that it made them feel great, sexy, and even empowered, which is so twisted considering they are being demeaned while it was all happening.

Understanding Hookup Culture – What’s Really Happening on College Campuses

Conspiracy claims United States government involvement Some conspiracy theories have alleged that the shooting was a hoax [11] and a false flag operation staged by the United States government. So the conspiracy theorists must instead challenge the claim that the attack even occurred. They believe it’s all a hoax to scare people into supporting more gun control and a step toward an outright repeal of the Second Amendment. Fetzer claimed that the massacre “appears to have been a psy op intended to strike fear in the hearts of Americans” that was conducted by “agents of Israel.

Showcasing a wide variety of story and style, the Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a minute theatrical program of eight short films from the edition of the January Festival.

Reviews Availability When it comes to intimacy and sex, young people today are apparently doing away with the old rules of romance and cutting straight to the chase. If recent reports are to be believed, the rise of hookup culture on college campuses is in the process of killing off dating and courtship, radically altering some of our most basic assumptions about heterosexual sex and gender.

But for all the speculation, there’s been little beyond anecdotal evidence to back any of these claims up. This lecture by Stanford University’s Paula England, a leading researcher in the sociology of gender, aims to clarify what’s actually going on. England mobilizes a wealth of data to begin to chart whether the phenomenon of hooking up represents some kind of fundamental change, or whether we’re simply seeing age-old gender patterns dressed up in new social forms.

Jason Young Camera Operators: Andrew Killoy Production Assistant: Her research focuses on gender inequality in labor markets, and on how changes in family life are affected by the gender and class systems. She is a former editor of the American Sociological Review. It does not engage in moralizing, nor should it. The film should motivate some interesting discussion and questions, and it may also contribute to the wider American dialog about not just what college students and young singles are doing but what we want them to do and what social, emotional, and physical consequences their choices make.

Insightful and surprisingly intimate. It might not take a cast of thousands — or, well, dozens — to celebrate one man’s body of work, but when you’re talking about the movies of Steven Spielberg, with their crowd-pleasing sweep and often groundbreaking artistic influence, a plethora of commentators makes sense. For her engaging documentary on his half-century of filmmaking, American Masters creator Susan Lacy spoke with more than two dozen of Spielberg’s famous colleagues and creative collaborators, and she and editor Deborah Peretz have incisively distilled and orchestrated their observations.

But it’s the nearly 30 hours of interviews that Lacy conducted with her cheerfully self-reflective subject that give Spielberg its revelatory oomph and make it so memorable.

The Hook-Up Culture Posted July 22, by Lisa Duffy A recent FOX News interview conducted by Martha McCallum with a group of college students tackled the subject of the hook-up culture and why many students prefer that .

YMMV It finally happened. Too bad it can’t be enjoyed, what with the show ending in the next two seconds and all. Often times the audience will only follow a series just to see if a specific couple will hook up. In many series, resolving the romantic situations of the main characters is a Series Goal , hence any attempt to break through and resolve the relationships before the Grand Finale results in Failure Is the Only Option.

Status Quo Is God results in the characters being placed under a Relationship Ceiling for the duration of the series. With a Last Minute Hookup, even the most uncreative and hilariously unromantic of writers are enabled to enjoy all the benefits of rewarding incessant fans with an intimate relationship, without the hassle of actually having to do so.

All they need to do is make sure the two have that one single kiss or exchange a single “I love you” at the very end, and it’s all good. It’s just that easy. This is also a way writers get rid of inconvenient romantic competition by having said competition suddenly fall for someone else. Though certainly not exclusive to them, the trope is especially frequent in premature crush -laden shows directed towards kids and tween audiences, where very few writers have the guts to take a jab at illustrating actual romance, but nonetheless, a vast majority still feel the overwhelming need to drop an innumerable amount of anything-but-subtle ” hints ” toward the prospect all throughout the series.

For the few bold ones that do have the guts to at least give it a try, they are hampered by Media Watchdogs and the usually larger portion of the audience who, quite frankly, just aren’t into that kind of stuff.

A combination of the prevalent “hook up” culture, as well as the preferred method of social interaction (texting) had all but obliterated skills of basic social interaction.

Performance and conceptual artist Spy Emerson is hitting the streets of the East Bay again with her “Hook-Up Truck,” the rolling social experiment and mobile safe-sex adventuring space that sparked local, national, and social media frenzies several years ago. The Hook-Up Truck is exactly what it sounds like: After a feverish year of news coverage from to , Emerson took a hiatus from the Hook-Up Truck for the next two years, turning down two offers from production companies wanting to option reality TV shows about her life.

Now, she’s back to tell the story of the truck and her unexpected departure. It’s a system of manipulation that I don’t agree with at all. The problem was, at the beginning of the media pandemonium, Emerson didn’t actually have a Hook-Up Truck, or any truck for that matter — just the idea. Her inspiration came from the stories her friends told her about their experiences using dating and hook-up apps.
