Scout narrated, “I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagined things, that’s why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with” (45). Basically, Jem is saying that Scout and him are no longer acting the same. Jem is insisting that if Scout asks like a girl, he will not play with her. In my opinion, this is childish of Jem to say. Throughout adolescence, there is a time when boys begin to enjoy different things than girls and vice versa.
In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Scout, one of the main characters of the story, is concerned about acting ‘like a girl’. Scout says, “I was not sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagined things, that’s why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with” (Lee, 60). Scout learns that being a girl is inferior because her brother tells her to stop acting like one, and that being a boy is the superior gender. Society has taught Scout that being a boy is much better than being a girl, because she observes boys having more freedom, and girls having to fulfill and be restricted to certain roles. She also realized that ‘people hated’ girls because they always assumed things because they did not have the capacity to understand the problems that were happening in the world.
In the article, “Greg Ousley Is Sorry for Killing Parents. Is That Enough?,” by Scott Anderson proves that some young individuals may act violently for certain matters because of how their parents treat them. It is unclear as to why juveniles and adolescents automatically go into extreme measures, however, this may be caused by lack of support from their parents. Anderson asserts, “What Phillips couldn’t see was that Greg’s behavior masked a rapidly deteriorating home life, where he was now the sole focus of his mother’s rage. Almost daily, Greg told me, his mother would rip into him about something- his grades, his appearance, his choice of friends- ferocious tirades that often culminated in her telling him, “I know you’re going to leave me just like your sisters did.” Once her anger passed, Bonnie would usually apologize to her son, but after a time, Greg didn’t even hear it anymore” (Anderson 42).
Where a white gay man is the protagonist and leader of the protest. While the Gay Liberation Front (a group of gay men) had a large part in the protests, they were not the leaders of this momentous event. Hollywood purposely erased history to make a blockbuster. Mark Segal, who was 18 at the time of this protest, had friends and family who were a part of the people depicted in the movie. Segal vehemently disagrees with the movie, saying that ““Stonewall” is uninterested in any history that doesn’t revolve around its white male, stereotypically attractive protagonist.” (Segal 2015).

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.
When Dill and Jem come up with the idea to walk to the Radley house and look through the window, Scout declares that she thinks it is a bad idea and she begins questioning them. In Jem’s opinion, she is acting like a girl because if she were to act like a boy, then she would be brave enough to go to the Radley house.

It discriminate against LGBT by letting religious business owner to deny LGBT people service and excluding them from the rest of the society.
Instead he insisted that he was foolish in appointing Earl Warren to the Supreme Court Justice. As soon as President Johnson refused to give federal money to segregated schools, the schools opened up very quickly. Eisenhower should have enforced that during his presidency. Had he chosen his words and actions more carefully, the country may not have been in such upheaval in the late 1950s and 1960s.
