However, this would be false because Beth played an important role in both Conrad and Calvin’s life whether that be good or bad. For example, Guest said, “‘Okay,’ he says. ‘Alright. Once I tried to kill myself, how’s that?’”(119). Conrad carried his guilt around because he knew it made his mother upset.
One incident where Mother blamed someone for Muggs biting her was on page 1 paragraph 3 where mother says “I wouldn’t be associated with such a man. Muggs could read him like a book”. another incident where mother took his side was on page 2 paragraph 4 where it states that she always used the fact that he never bit someone more than once as an argument in his favor; furthermore, on page 2 paragraph 5 Muggs bit the ice man and mother 's reaction to it was to immediately blame the ice man for it. She said that if he wouldn 't have thought Muggs would bite him he wouldn 't have. on page 3 paragraph 7 is says that Muggs bit quite a few people and that it was not the fault of mugs but of the people that were bitten.
Next, it is easy to tell that Mr. Bob Ewell and his daughter were more concerned about arresting Tom Robinson rather than the actual case. They were quick to point fingers, but they had trouble paying attention during the trial. When asked by Mr. Gilmer (the solicitor) if he was ambidextrous, Mr. Ewell responded by saying, “I most positively am not, I can use one hand good as the other.” Also, Mayella didn’t hesitate to accuse Tom of hitting her left eye even though Mr. Heck Tate clearly stated that her right eye was blackened. The two witnesses were ignorant and nervous throughout cross-examination. Mayella was only anxious because she had something to hide: she had kissed a black man.
The fact is that because her name was pure in Salem, almost everybody trusted her. Abigail Williams accused lots of people in Salem, even people with a good reputation and good souls; she wanted to save herself so she did wrong things. In act III, she pretend that she was possessed by Mary Warren, repeating everything Mary said. How we can see, she was not a sane woman; after being the good niece from Reverend Parris to being a horrible and pitiless woman. She started the rumors of witchcraft in the whole Salem just to stay with John, doing impossible things to keep herself saved and to keep John.
Walls was offered by her father to have sex with one of his friends in return for money. Luckily, she was able to avoid having sex with the man, stating that she is “not that kind of girl.” Another instance of sexual abuse in The Glass Castle is when Walls’ Uncle Stanley touches Jeannette inappropriately. After telling her mother of this incident, Jeannette receives no sympathy. In fact, Rose Mary ends up giving her sorrow to Stanley, claiming that she feels bad for him because he is “lonely.” Rose Mary also states that sexual assault is a “crime of perception.” This dismissal and victim-shaming is prevalent in today’s world. Unfortunately, even our youth experience what Jeannette Walls experienced.
Offred speculates about the wife being salvaged she tells how one of the only things they get salvaged for is for killing a Handmaid. She also explains how shocked she was when Nick would wink at her or try to make small talk and that he was risking himself. She then brings up that maybe he is an eye and maybe “it was a test, to see what [she] would do” (20). In pre-Gilead flirting and catcalling was perfectly normal but anything past that was not, most women know when and where they can walk alone without being worried about being assaulted. As well as assault, Gilead strives to protect people from other people’s mistakes that are in the form of terrorism.
He gets flashbacks a lot of what happen in the cyclops; land and Skyla and also when his friends eat the fruit and didn’t remember a thing. I could support this with evidence from the article “WHAT IS PTSD” in the article it say that when you see a tragic thing you get flash backs and nightmares of what happened and never get over it. Also in the article this woman name Gina has flashback of herself being a child and couldn’t protect herself when her uncle sexually abused her. Odysseus get flashbacks of when his men died he says to himself why couldn’t he just safe them. He could’ve done a better job but he did all he can do to try to safe
I seen it.’ ‘Well, that glove’s fulla vaseline.’ ‘ Vaseline? What the hell for?’ ‘Well, I tell ya what-Curley says he’s keepin’ that hand soft for his wife.’” Candy is inferring that Curley beats his wife. The vaseline makes his hand soft, to make sure there are no marks left on his wife after beating her.This is an extremely mean, menacing act. To even think about beating someone is very wrong, but to do it is even worse. Along with that, making sure no marks are left on the victim is very
“Did you try poisoning the kids?” He said very irritated. Janet said no, but she still didn’t know about the hidden cameras. “We have pictures of you putting cyanide in lunch food.” Janet didn’t respond, she wasn’t really scared of what’s going to happen. I mean she had problems that have came back. Mr. Morales has looked at Janet’s history records, which were really bad.
“Lying is bad,” the common phrase children hear from their parents when refusing to admit they stole a cookie from the cookie jar. The same applies to many other situations, such as thievery, betrayal, lies, and more. Constantly we are told that taking part in such things is wrong. Yet, what about that man that just stole a hundred dollars to buy food for his starving family? What judgement befalls on the girl that just lied to save her best friend’s reputation?
