This is the exact toxic rhetoric discussed in My So-Called Felicity In the City. In this autoethnography, the author describes comparing herself to other girls (Stern, 419), criticizing her glasses and braces and acting as though those are a reasonable explanation as to why it’s a suprise a boy liked her. That was my entire adolescence, comparing myself not just to the girls my age around me, but also to the women I saw on reality television. This is significant, as the author explains, because adolescents identify with television themes that resonate with their lives experiences and can provide “a cultural and interpretive framework” (421). In relation to the reality dating shows I insisted on watching,
Revenge of the Bridesmaids is a comedy movie which talks about two bridesmaids plan to destroy a wedding for their best friend because the bride stole their friend’s boyfriend. It is not a hit movie and certainly not a blockbuster, but I think it will brings a lot of fun to the audience if it is adapted into a musical. This movie starts with one of the main characters, Abigail, as voice-over, explains the relationship among her, other two women Parker and Racheal, and the bride Caitlin, each’s personality, their childhood together and why she and Parker and Racheal do not like Caitlin. When this part is performed on the stage, there will be an exposition song singing by one of the performers who is taking the part of Abigail to explain the whole thing, with other performers acting aside about things that are described in the lyrics, including things that happened when the main characters were kids (acting by young performers).
For example, on one of China’s most popular dating reality show, If You Are the One, a girl said to the boy that “I'd rather be sitting inside a BMW and crying than sitting on a bicycle and smiling” (Zhao, 2010). Similarly, on another dating show called Go for Love, a girl said that “Do not talk to me, unless you are rich” (Zhao, 2010). Since the two girls’ worship-money mentality was contradictory to Chinese traditional marriage values, audience were attracted by the shows. However, according to Kefan Cao, a Chinese television presenter, the girls were actresses and they were arranged by the directors of the dating shows. This shows that the dating shows were designed to strike the audience with controversial moral values such as “materialism, narcissism and discrimination against the poor among China’s younger generations” (Wang, 2016), so that they can make profits from commercial sponsors.

Unlike her first shot at becoming an actress, Eve took her second chance and ran away with it. In the e-book Manipulation and Ideologies in the Twentieth Century, written by Peter Schulz, he states, “Trying to define manipulation in the abstract does not get us very far” (15). Trying to understand the reasoning of another person for manipulating you or anyone else for that matter will get you absolutely nowhere. Those who manipulate others may feel no remorse at all, the ones who hurt are the individuals that were played for a fool.

In New York, during the 19th century, about 13% of prostitutes entered the profession due to being seduced and abandoned (Zaharides 53). This fact is likely because women, unlike men, would lose their pure reputation by having sex before marriage. Such indiscretions by a woman at this time would have earned the label of “fallen woman” (Zaharides 2). Maggie was already labeled a fallen woman by her family even before there is any evidence that she may have lost her virginity.
