The write up/article definitely makes a point. However, as a student of New Communication Technology, I feel Technology has helped and improved communication immensely in more ways than it’s mentioned in the article. The key importance of communication is proper dissemination of information or news and this has been achievable by the New Communication Technologies. More so, it has helped to strengthen inter-personal communication through chat applications and social media. Through these websites, there’s need for constant and effortless contact with people you know and even new people.
Another advantage is the easy access to information via the Internet. Reporters today even source their articles from the internet. As a matter of fact, you did use a gadget of technology to share this information, didn’t you?
You cannot blame technology for the reasons you have mentioned. You blame what people are doing with technology.

The problem is: What is between the lines? Aurora is described as an extraordinarily beautiful woman, so young girls will understand, even if they are not directly told, that is how they are supposed to strive to look. If you have ever seen “Sleeping Beauty,” however, you will notice that Aurora’s figure is as impossible as Barbie’s for humans to achieve. Unfortunately, this is not isolated just to “Sleeping Beauty.” All of Disney’s princesses, and even some of the female villains, are impossibly proportioned, and the ones who are not, like Ursula of “The Little Mermaid,” are still hyper-sexualized to the point of absurdity.
