Pertinent issue topic
Pertinent issue/topic: or thinking specifically about one broader topic.

How do advertisements on social networking sites target either males or females simply through language?


Step 2 knowledge claims assumed truths and implications
Step 2: Knowledge Claims (assumed truths) and Implications or thinking specifically about one broader topic.

1. Advertisers utilize their knowledge of gender to target.

  • What does that imply?: It implies that marketing companies know what males and females want.


2. Language might appear to be gender neutral, but words like “slim” and “smooth” are clearly aimed at feminine values.

Implications-The Language reinforces sometimes negative views women and men have of themselves.

(I would come up with 2 more knowledge claims…)

Propositions like “slim” and “smooth” are clearly aimed at feminine values.

  • Targeted advertising saves companies from marketing to the wrong demographic.

    • Analytical, value judgment

    • PROBLEMS of KNOWLEDGE/COUNTER CLAIMS

      • What if a male is shopping for his girlfriend? What about the LGBQT community?

        *I would do this for each of my four knowledge claims.


Don t forget
Don’t forget like “slim” and “smooth” are clearly aimed at feminine values.

  • Real life examples

  • Global perspectives

  • Your goal is to EXPLORE and EDUCATE, you might end up being persuasive, but your goal is not to persuade.
