     hop. The class with watch Part One: Understanding Violent Masculinity. After the

CLASS NAME: Tough Guise – Part Two: Violent Masculinity in Action -

Facilitator lead, group discussion - can be arranged to bring to your Squadron or work
      unit , 5 to 20 participants,

Course Description: This is Part Two of a two part video/training. The central argument of
Tough Guise is that violence in America is overwhelmingly a gendered phenomenon, and that
any attempt to understand violence therefore requires that we understand its relationship to
cultural codes and ideals of masculinity and manhood. Central to the video’s argument are the
following:
» Masculinity is made, not given – as opposed to one’s biological sex;
» Media are the primary narrative and pedagogical forces of our time;
» Media images of manhood therefore play a pivotal role in making, shaping and privileging
certain cultural and personal attitudes about manhood;
» A critical examination of privileged media images of manhood reveals a widespread and
disturbing equation of masculinity with pathological control and violence;
» Looking critically at constructed ideals of manhood – at how, why and in whose interests they
are constructed differently in different historical, social and cultural contexts – denaturalizes and
diminishes the potential of these imagined ideals to shape our perceptions of ourselves, our
world and each other.

This last point underscores one of the central claims of this video: that despite epidemic levels of
violence in American culture, change is possible and violence can be prevented. After the
watching the film there will be a 45 minute discussion.

CLASS NAME: Wrestling with Manhood: Boys, Bullying & Battering – 1 hr 45 min

Facilitator lead, group discussion - can be arranged to bring to your Squadron or work
      unit , 5 to 20 participants

Course Description: » Professional wrestling has been immunized from serious and sustained
    cultural analysis largely because of its spectacular surface appeal and the common
    assertion that “it’s only entertainment.”
    » The immense popularity and cultural presence of professional wrestling, its consistently
    high ratings and its aggressive promotion across a range of media channels, raise two
    simple questions: Why is professional wrestling so popular? And what does its popularity
    tell us about American culture more generally?
    » The central argument of this video is that the popularity of professional wrestling reveals
    something larger about society, about the deep-seated norms, values and moral codes that
    shape our daily attitudes and behavior.
    » We need to ask not only why people are watching professional wrestling, but how
    wrestling in turn might affect society. Hear Vince McMahon (of the WWE’s) point of
    view

CLASS NAME: Dream worlds 3 Desire, Sex and Power in Music Videos – 1 hr 45 min

Facilitator lead, group discussion - can be arranged to bring to your Squadron or work
      unit, 5 to 20 participants

Course Description: In this second update of 1991’s groundbreaking Dream worlds, Sut Jhally
critically examines the representation of women, men, and sexuality in music videos. Jhally’s
primary argument is that music videos, not unlike other forms of advertising and popular culture,
represent the pornographic imagination by offering a degraded and
limited view of female sexuality based on narrowly defined adolescent heterosexual male
fantasies. Locating the stories and images of music video in a wider context, the film explores
how American popular culture, more generally, encourages and excuses men’s violence against
women, and argues that we need a wider range of stories about femininity, masculinity, and
sexuality.
Special Note: This video features images of graphic, sexualized violence.

CLASS NAME: Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes – 1 hr 45 min

Course Description: Hip-hop has become one of the most vital, and profitable, forces in
    popular culture. Rap music is now an international art form. Hip-hop is now truly
    mainstream.

     Some say, “Gangsta rap,” is marked by lyrics and visual images that glorify violence,
     misogyny, and homophobia, and may promote a hunger for the acquisition of flashy and
     expensive material goods.

     This class is an interactive discussion group that takes opinions of the message in media to
     another level.

     In the film Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes, a longtime hip-hop fan, Byron Hurt,
     takes a step back from the music that he loves, to ask difficult questions about how rap
     music may be shaping our culture, reinforcing racist stereotypes and promoting harmful
     ideas about gender and sexuality.

Class name: Parenting with Love and Logic

Course description: The parenting course Becoming a Love and Logic Parent teaches parents
how to hold their kids accountable in this special way. This Love and Logic method causes the
child to see their parent as the "good guy" and the child's poor decision as the "bad guy." When
done on a regular basis, kids develop an internal voice that says, "I wonder how much pain I'm
going to cause for myself with my next decision?" Kids who develop this internal voice become
more capable of standing up to peer pressure.

What more could a parent want? Isn't that a great gift to give your child? Parent child
relationships are enhanced, family life becomes less strained, and we have time to enjoy our kids
instead of either feeling used by them or being transformed from parent to policeman.

Class Name: I Never Thought it Was Rape
Course Description: This discussion group is for airmen, supervisors, leadership and parents. I
     Never Thought it Was Rape raises awareness about sexual assault and its long-term impact
     on both survivors and perpetrators. One survivor discusses being raped in college under
     the influence of a date rape drug by an acquaintance who she trusted. Another share how
     she was assaulted as an emotionally vulnerable young teenager by an older teen who
     groomed and manipulated her. A perpetrator tells his story about taking sexual advantage
     of an intoxicated 12 year-old girl when he was 18, which led to ten years in prison and the
     legal and social stigma of "sexual offender" in his community after his release. The stories
     educate viewers about how sexual assault can lead to a lifetime of devastation for both the
     perpetrator and the victim, that nonconsensual sex never equals love, and that ignorance of
     laws is no defense against charges of sexual assault.
