“Fast food is popular because it’s convenient, it’s cheap, and it tastes good. But the real cost of eating fast food never appears on the menu.” When the idea of fast food was first created, it was met with mixed reactions. White Castle and A&W--the first two fast food restaurants ever created--worked very hard to create a service that could provide meals quickly to the people around them. Customers, at first, refused to eat hamburgers because of their tarnished image influenced by Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle. White Castle began to change this negative image of hamburgers by preparing all meat in front of a window that customers could see through.
Stevie is at a party where one of her friends starts to talk badly about a girl that eats more than one hotdog. When Stevie asks how that’s bad, Tanya says, “Boys are different [...]can eat as much as they want [..] people will think it’s cute. [...] If a girl does that, people will talk about her like a dog (pg.65).” This is a double standard, as males are able to get away with things that females wouldn’t be able to. Conversely, Stevie pays no mind to what Tanya says and eats another hotdog showing major character development whereas the Stevie before would care about fitting in or what people thought about her. Another significant factor in the novel is when Stevie and her friends play a game about who’s lighter.
Here’s a thought, a couple goes out on date, one orders burger and fries while the other a nice healthy salad. Through existing gender stereotypes, one will automatically assume that the male ordered the burger and fries as the female the salad. This is because society has assumed its own gender roles and believe what is already perceived by the public. Authors of “The Yellow Wallpaper”, “The Man Who Was Almost a Man” and “Boys Girls” implement these received ideas into three main characters. Gender stereotypes are negatively exaggerated through the three distinguishable protagonists including the narrator from Boys and Girls, the narrator from the yellow wallpaper and Dave from the man who was almost a man; analysis of these three characters will display the controversial effects of society on an individual.

It also creates a sense of awe for the woman as it create insecurities...When opening up the newspaper the first image you see is of a topless woman with a quote saying “DELICIOUS DANNI” (pg.3). Through the lexicon used it connotes that women are ‘pieces of meat’ therefore dehumanising the woman for a sexual object, for them just to admire.

“"...Seems like Curley is cockier'n ever since he got married." George grunted. "Maybe he's showin' off for his wife. "” She is representing the women of the 1930’s only there being portrayed as a sex symbol or a piece of meat. Steinbeck has really proven much she was worth by not even giving her a name, throughout the whole book she is referred to as ‘Curley’s Wife’ whereas the male characters ALL have names.
40-42) On the other hand, Stanley abuses her physically when he is drunk, however she always goes back to him. Similarly, Stanley plants information into Stella, until she nearly savaged her relationship with Blanche. (Page 96) This is shown when Blanche has confided to Stella about the rape and rather than consider believing her, she believes Stanley because of all the supposed lies Blanche has told and her abnormal devoutness to her husband. “I couldn’t believe her story and go on living with Stanley!” –Stella Kowalski.

In a similar fashion, Attwood also uses a form of repetition in the second passage, where she highlights the abundance of meat by using a repetition of metaphors. Similar to the first passage, the writer draws attention to the “mountains of meat” given to the nobles. She chooses to use this specific metaphor repetition instead of plainly describing the amount of meat there is in order to give emphasis to the scale or size of the rations. In reference to Penelope’s life, this passage occurs around the time the suitors show up at her house with the absence of Odeysseus as a motive, demanding that she choose a husband to replace the once believed dead. Given this, Attwood also lives in a time where society draws a border between women and men where men are perceived as superior and women as inferior as well as are seen as disrespectful if they refuse any male’s
