In the blog post “Kesha and Rape Culture in the Music Industry,” Morton connects a very specific idea created within feminist ideology and connects it with the culture at large, allowing the readers to learn about rape culture in way that matters to them. There is an intermingling of information of the court case surrounding the pop-singer Kesha who is suing her producer, Dr. Luke. While this may sound like celebrity media that has no substance, focusing on the fact that Kesha was raped and assaulted many times while working with her producer, the writer critiques the way the law is handling it and how it is a product of misogyny.
Around half of the blog post is about the details of the case, from Kesha’s beginnings with Dr. Luke as a rising pop-star, to the current case and how there are many obstacles in her way. While this isn’t focused on the policies surrounding the case, and there is little information given about the charges besides what they are, the audience gets a stable understanding of the case.
Next, there is a focus on the impact of the case of social media and our culture. While it doesn’t necessarily invite the reader to become part of the campaign to aid Kesha, it is shown to the reader so they could make the decision themselves. The author also puts in their opinions of Kesha’s music, and how she is different.
In the last paragraph, which I find lacking, the reader gets a small lesson on Rape Culture. It could have even given a good sentence to round off the rest of the post, but it just ends with how disadvantaged survivors are when they speak out. The concept could have been condensed to something that fit within the style of the blog, which is medium and informal, but it isn’t there. Overall, the post is well organized for the audience, which are young adults, though it could have been elaborated to be more informational.
