Abstract

近年來,「o靚模」成了冒起得最快,又備受香港社會爭議的對象。「o靚模」一職讓欠缺專業模特兒身型的年輕女性,以極性感的形象投身娛樂產業。為「o靚模」現象推波助瀾的,正是香港媒體。本文試圖分析香港平面媒體如何描繪「o靚模」,並列出當中的特徵。這些描繪特徵貫徹了女性胴體性慾化的論述,看似拿女性表現性慾的自由來衝擊香港的社會空間,但實則無助女性追尋身體自主,由從屬地位解放出來。這也說明了透過市場邏輯謀利的香港平面媒體在設定這些描繪特徵時,仍然以父權意識為依歸。
In recent years, lengmo has emerged as a popular and controversial subject in Hong Kong society. Literally meaning naive young model, lengmo is a relatively new occupation that allows young women who lack the figure of professional models to enter the entertainment industry. These young women, mostly with sexy appearances, become a social phenomenon propelled by the local print media. This article analyzes how the Hong Kong print media characterize lengmo by endorsing them as sexualized subjects. These characterizations imply the discourse of sexualizing female bodies. Although seemingly pushing the expression of female sexuality into the social space, they do not liberate women in their pursuit of sexual autonomy. Such an implication entails the patriarchal ideology on which the operation of the local print media is ground. Copyright © 2012 香港教育大學, 大中華研究中心.
