This is a really interesting topic, with a rather funny concept that Harley is trying to convey. I'm not sure if the women in these collages would ever pair up with the men shown! Your collage is really well done, the quotes allow the viewer to understand the masculinity gender orientated advertising that Harley uses to sell motorcycles or any of their other products. Also your reference to the Norwegian "Pleasure Ships", helps the reader understand and realize just how harmful these messages can be. The quotation used from Katz ties in well to your argument.
I was however just a little unclear of the thesis statement in the first paragraph. Your explanations seem to be a little broad, but do good job explaining the sexist marketing techniques Harley is using. I also liked your descriptions about the gender advertising in car commercials, however I'm not sure it was necessary in your piece about Harley.
Overall awesome job with our last blog post! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
