Like a rat placed inside a maze to be examined by a scientist, the cast members of the reality T.V show “Bad Girls Club” are placed in a house to be examined as a psychological experiment. The popular reality T.V show “Bad Girls Club” is a show that follows the lives of seven self-proclaimed “bad girls” as they live in a house together. The supposed purpose of this show is to not only watch these bad-mannered women fight, bicker, and argue, but it is also to watch these women mature and step away from their “bad girl” personifications.

The mother in the beginning was sweet and kind but didnt put up with any lollygagging from Bruno. When he snapped at her when they were moving she ended that quick.

Reading that made me wonder what was going through the minds of the slaves who were being taken from their homes and shackled to work like dogs.
This creative piece is a response to the Venus’ ability to manipulate her oppressors in order to get what she wants in the novel The Venus by Suzan Lori-Parks. For this response I used text from scenes 30, 22 , 20I, and 9. I used scence 30 because this scene shows how the Venus uses seduction and her body to get what she wants from The Brother. She is in a room alone with him and he is displaying interest in her and is trying to pursue her because they have a history. The Venus uses these feelings that he has for her to get a dress because that is what she wants.
