I would be remiss if I did not mention at the outset of our class a raunchy music video that has gone viral in the sf community this week. A warning before you click: If this were a movie, it would be R-rated, including the title. If adolescent sex comedy is not your taste, please avoid this video. It is not a required text. OK, all that being said, here's the link.
The writer-performer is New York comedian Rachel Bloom, whom Saturday Night Live probably should hire immediately.
Questions to ponder: What assumptions are made, in this video, about the sf audience? To what extent have geeks/nerds become sexualized across pop culture, and what's behind this trend?
