In the text, it says,” I can feel myself shrinking right there in front of her. But I can’t bring myself to tell my mother that I think I understand how I made Abuela feel. I might be sent into the old lady’s room to apologize, and it’s not easy to admit you’ve been a jerk—at least, not right away with everybody watching. So I just sit there not saying anything” (Cofer 19). Although, she does feel resentful for what she did, she cannot get herself to apologize.
It starts off by giving their opinion on humor. Afterwards the blogs goes into the idea that people (mostly women) are afraid of expressing their opinion publicly on the fact that the joke aren’t funny. “[m]aybe never said to anyone for fear of reprisal, for fear of being told they are humorless, hypersensitive, over-reactionary, boring. For fear of hearing in those words, “Oh, you’re such a girl,” and feeling that thing, that awful thing, in your gut, the shame of being a girl”. From the quote above you could clearly tell why women wouldn’t want to say out loud their own opinion, making them oppress their feeling by the use of fear.

I believe that Alison can physically say out loud that she is a suspect and take full responsibility for things she has done. However, I did not think that she believed those things in her heart and mind. She sometimes spokes as if she is the victim, like everyone has done her wrong. For example, with her situation with her classmate, Tori, she just always assumed Tori was after her. Alison always accused Tori for doing things to her because she had made herself believe that Tori hated her.
At first Josie hated her father Michael for what he did to her mother, but then ends up opening her heart to him and accepting him into the family. She also didn’t get along with her Nonna that well at the start, but after realizing what her Nonna went through when she was her age, Josie and her Nonna started to see eye to eye. The reason Josie didn’t get along with Katia (Nonna) that well was because of the way she treated Josie’s mother. If Christina (Josie’s mother) or Josie ever did or wanted to do something Katia will always say “people will talk” and that really annoyed both of them. Josie’s relationship with her mother is a love hate relationship, one minute they love each other to bits and the next they’ll be screaming and throwing stuff at each other.
I understand how difficult losing someone close to you is, but I don’t deserve to be guilt tripped by you. I didn’t make any hateful comments about you because I don’t know who you are Abby. Your name was mentioned twice. I said and I quote (because I wrote it), “I wrote that part in the beginning of October because I was incredibly hurt when I found out your new best friend, Abby, was moving or going to Webb.” I also said,

Anne has let her temper get the best of her and she is starting to notice and feel bad about all the things she has done.

She also hears about how torn her mother was throughout that time from the news reports. Esther does not feel sympathy for anything though, and later admits that she hates her mother. While this may seem selfish, I do understand Esther’s way of thinking. I have also had problems with my mother throughout my life. These problems are not caused by a simple fight, but they are caused from years of abuse.
What I learned about myself while doing this assignment is that it doesn 't bother me what people don 't know about me, it bothers me what they think they know about me that 's not right. I also realized that my friends like me for who I am not for what others think I am. They are not embarrassed by me, they are just as crazy as me. During this assignment, I learned that others think of me as a crazy person. They think I am weird, I am, but in a fun and goofy way.
