When a Dodgers fan goes to a Dodger’s game, we assume this fan acted freely because the action is consistent with the fan’s identity.
It’s what a Dodgers fan fan does.
This doesn’t seem controversial, but this type of reasoning can make people vulnerable to coercion.
If we want someone who is not a Dodger’s fan to go to a Dodger’s game, we don’t have to kidnap them – we just need to make them into a Dodger’s fan. If you succeed in imposing an identity, then you make identity-based actions appear to be freely chosen. They appear to be freely chosen because the coercive force conditions their WANTS.
This is an (awkward) analogy to MacKinnon’s reasoning about prostitution.
She argues that “Sex in general, particularly sex for survival, is so pervasively merged with the meaning of being a woman that whenever sex occurs, under whatever conditions, the woman tends to be defined as freely acting.”
In other words, it only appears that women in sex work are acting freely because their choices are consistent with an identity. In a sexist system, what it means to be a woman is to be sexually disposable. As we saw in the Dodger’s example, forcefully imposing an identity can make identity-based actions appear free.
This allows MacKinnon to claim that “All prostitution is ringed with force.”
She supports this with both of the senses of coercion we have covered, but these are not enough to support the ALL in her conclusion.
So, she also refers to another kind of force. This other force does not act at the level of WANTING (or NOT WANTING).
It operates earlier than that.
Before we have wants, we have an identity.
MacKinnon introduces a THIRD sense of coercion that works at the level of identity.
This third sense is a THEORETICAL definition that goes deeper than the legal definition in the Penal Code.
In a full 3-page essay, typed in 12-point font and double spaced, please think critically about MacKinnon’s argument.
QUESTION: Does MacKinnon’s example of coercion at the level of identity persuade you that “All prostitution is ringed with force?”
Your thinking about this question should be focused on deeper questions such as:
Is it true that coercion can exist at the level of identity?
How does that happen? Has MacKinnon established that it does happen?
Is it true that women have been coerced into an identity as sexually disposable beings?
What are examples of this? Has MacKinnon established the truth of these examples?
Is it true that an oppressed identity makes the choice to engage in sex work only appear to be free because it conditions what people WANT?
Longfellow's Unique American Hero in Evangeline A one of a kind American saint unique in long individual in Evangeline: The clarification of Adam's long individual in the United States is something else. Through the portrayal of the story sonnet Evangelin, the idea of American Adam can be seen in different manners. R. W. B. Lewis investigated the journey for American Renaissance journalists and made a one of a kind American writing in the 1955 content "American Adam in the Nineteenth Century: Innocence, Tragedy and Tradition". In 1847, the American writer Henry Wadsworth Long Fellow distributed a long story sonnet about the ejection of the Acadians called Evangeline, delineating an imaginary individual Ivagne. Phosphorus' quandary. This sonnet got in vogue and got acclaimed. Evangeline oak is a vacation destination in Louisiana. The melody "Acadian Driftwood" recorded by The Band in 1975 speaks to the development and Acadian development. Antonine Maillet composed a novel called Pélagie-la-Charrette because of huge wreck. It was granted to Prix Goncourt in 1979. Fantastic PréPark is Canadian National Historic Site of Grand-Pére, Nova Scotia State and is protected as a landmark to the outcast. It incorporates the commemoration church and the sculpture of Evangeline, the subject of long individual verse. In 2018, Canadian history specialist and writer A.J.B. Johnston distributed YA's epic called The Hat, propelled by the occasion in the Grand Prix of 1755. On the off chance that the understudies meet a long individual before attending a university, at that point the writer they know isn't in this assortment: Evangeline, "Ha Faasha's melody", "Million's romance". This long individual's assortment is our "revisionist" long individual in the second 50% of the twentieth century and nearly perceives renowned journalists who may have thought of them, aside from sonnets like "Hymns of life" can not. On the off chance that verse understudies don't really peruse Long Fellows, he just tuned in to him (in an ordinary case) and they need to know why he is so celebrated. These are a ton of extraordinary writers. Long Fellow is one of only a handful barely any writers who joined new works. He made a few best sonnets ever. Sonnets of the Evangeline, Haihuasha tunes, and long individual stories, for example, Miles Stendish's tribute give a sentimental perspective on the early American history and vote based goals. Evangelin is perhaps the longest sonnet at any point composed by an essayist. It is mainstream through the differentiation everything being equal. It is perused, cherished and thought in an unassuming bungalow (Wagonknecht P.85). Evangelin is difficult to misrepresent his style at home and abroad, which is the principal long verse that rose above his own time in American writing (Wagonknecht P.85)>GET ANSWER
