Masculinity and “Camp”

While reading the article I felt a some relief. It is mentioned that film tackles many different social issues, but it wasn’t until recently that masculinity was no longer over looked. We’ve talked about how women were objectified in film, but I also was thinking at the time that this happened to men in film as well. Probably not to as large an extent, but it’s very hard to have anyone in film without them being judged, or being objectified. People like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are usually not mentioned without some mention of their bodies, and they give a pretty unrealistic body image.

While reading chapter 11 there was a section on “camp” and it was mentioned several times. After reading the section I am still a little confused as to what it is, can people tell me what they think of camp?
