Without too much disrespect to the comparative method, the Wondergirls and Gothic Lolitas are not parallel representatives of feminine sexuality as performed in South Korea and Japan, respectively.

The one thing I had not really experienced until this year is the deleterious effect a professor-with-an-agenda can have when pushing said agenda on a student. A professor is obviously more familiar with an academic field and can assist his or her students; a professor should not push his or her students to fill in blanks in the field when the blanks are only perceptible to the professor and the student is the actual author of a work. I think this is not the case in the sciences, and may in fact be different in graduate level studies, but it was always my impression that it's important for someone doing academic work to be moderately enthusiastic.
