He also shows a little distaste for his brother because he has luxuries. Question About the Passage: 1. What keeps Holden’s relationship with his brother strong? Catcher In The Rye:Chapter 2: Significant Passage: “You never knew if he was nodding a lot because he was thinking and all, or just because he was a nice old guy that didn 't know his ass from his elbow.” Speaker: Holden Caulfield Audience: the reader Significance to the story: The reason he says this sentence is because he thinks that all adults pretend like they aren’t as knowledgeable as young people.

‘Jesus Christ’. He put down his razor, and all of a sudden jerked his arms up and sort of broke my hold on him.” (pg 39) Holden is really a hypocrite also from the research paper, “This establishes Holden’s own sense of hypocrisy: although he condemns the behavior of the class to which he belongs, he shares their behaviors and even accepts this value system as reasonable.” (pg
In Gary Soto’s short story “The Talk” he reveals how society values appearance way too much. The main characters discuss about how their appearance affects their self-esteem, mindset, and their future jobs. The characters start out discussing their appearance and call themselves ugly, “We were twelve, with lean bodies that were beginning to grow in weird ways. First, our heads got large, but our necks wavered, frail as crisp tulips” (par.2). The boys talk about their appearance as if they were really awkward when in reality they probably don’t look like the way their describing themselves.
“I done it!” The school stared in perplexity at this incredible folly. Tom stood a moment, to gather his dismembered facilities; and when he stepped forward to go to his punishment the surprise, the gratitude, the adoration that shone on him out of poor Becky’s eyes seemed pay enough for a hundred floggings” (page 127). This is an example of how he treats Becky better and how he earned her admiration by taking her punishment for tearing the teacher’s book. Tom wouldn’t have done that at the beginning of the book when they fight and that shows a gradual change taking place. His braveness and chivalry, however, represents a more mature version of the meaning of concern for others and helping them out when Tom refuses to give up looking for the way out of the cave.

Culture and the social context are probably the most known, but age is another determining aspect that cannot be overlooked since it plays a major role in the deviation from hegemonic masculinity and consequent development of alternative types of masculinities. In youth, men try to hide feelings of vulnerability and weakness. They do not show their emotions and are reluctant to ask for help.
Analysis of Evidence: Living in a society where there is little understanding of the world and a man with curiosity, John goes on a journey hoping to attain more knowledge.

The Socs were the rich who thought they were better than the greasers. They show this by attacking the greasers for fun. An example from the beginning of the book is when Ponyboy got jumped for the first time.“‘Hey grease,’ one said in an over-friendly voice. ‘We’re gonna do you a favor, greaser. We’re gonna cut all that long greasy hair off.’” The Socs get fun out of causing pain to the greasers.

Two people can appear to be polar opposites, but turn out to be more similar than what meets the eye. Surprisingly, the Barber and Captain Torres are particularly similar people. Both take their jobs extremely seriously, have a dark side to them, and are associated with the revolution. Concerning the revolution, the men are politically involved, even though they are on opposing sides.

Even though he was able to decrease drug use in the middle class in the lower class drug use increased. Many presidents sometimes do not have the best relationship with Congress but eventually they work out their differences, especially when you are a Republican Party with a democratic influenced Congress.
The main issue is, we are raising our young boys to be men right away. This prevents them from being able to show their feelings and makes them lash out in an aggressive manner. There is a problem with men in this country that nobody seems to try and fix. Men are being bullied, put in stressful situations in need of help but only being told to "man up" or told that their problems "aren 't that bad". According to an article titled Dangers of Masculinity by Shannon Beam (a writer for The Odyssey, a news station similar to CNN), 98% of all mass shooters from 1982-2016 were men.
