Today, you have a choice between four articles. These articles, whether they are about Hollywood, video games, or ESPN, all have one thing in common–either the opinions or the subjects on which the opinions are based are highly contentious.
Once you have read the article, write a 3/4 page response in which you take issue with either the author’s opinion or the issue he/she is writing about. For example, you could argue that:
- ESPN and other sports shows need to drop sexist language from their broadcasts
- game designers should (or should not) worry about the depiction of gender in their games
- Hollywood should create stronger roles for female actresses.
Your tone can be informal and passionate, but you need to avoid insults.
