  1. What do you take the differences between “hearing” and “listening” to be? Do we make choices about what we listen to? If so, how do we make these choices? What criteria do we use? Do structural features, such as race, gender, or social class, inform how we listen? How so? Are there other structural elements that affect our listening experiences? Hearing is just something you just listen to, listening is something that you pay close attention too. Yes, we make the choice on what we listen to because listening gives one’s attention to a sound, listening is a learned skill. We make these choices by managing what he can hear and what we don’t want to hear. When we pay attention to certain things and only focus on it you forget about what’s around it. It’s very personal choice to choose what we listen to and what we don’t. In some house holds the wife usually listens to what the husband says because he’s the head on the house. Listening is something that you can’t really avoid. I feel like something that really effects our listening structural elements that affect our listening experience is our surrounding because you can easily get distracted by any noise.

Still to this day women are being objected to by men as “berger” described. Women put themselves out there to the public where everyone can see and judge their appearance.Also it makes men judge women with a whole different perspective. No women  have less control over their image in the media because everyone has an opinion that will make you look different in everyone’s eye.

Women have the choice of controlling their appearance on social media  by controlling what they post and show publicly. “Berger” says the difference between nakedness is just the human female body without clothes”. Women have full control of their appearance and of who they want to people to look at them as.
