We live in a society based on labels and unspoken social norms of conduct, which, whether we like it or not, affect our everyday life. The constant friction between individual thinking, and our instinctive desire to be part of society, consequently creates social issues. Our modern society is so immersed in social issues, to the point in which these issues have become part of our daily life; thus, causing people to acclimatize to these, rather than questioning them. It is, therefore, no wonder that social issues are often addressed in literature. Children’s literature in particular, being the main literary medium through which the younger generation can be influenced, has the responsibility to touch upon these issues, in order to encourage children to develop their own critical thinking, so as to understand and consequently prevent further issues.

So make the right decisions and choices in life to make not only yourself proud and happy but also those around you.” Throughout the many books we read during class there seemed to be a running theme through a few of them. Men make rash decisions and act on these rash decisions while women stop and think things through before they act. According to crisiscounseling.org, Dr. Michael G. Conner author of “Understanding The Difference Between Men and Women” writes, “... male attraction to high speed activities and reckless behavior that usually involve collisions with other males or automobiles. Men invented the game “chicken”, not women.” So in this paper I will discuss how men make rash decisions in Othello, how men make rash decisions in Wuthering Heights, how men make rash decisions in In Evil Hour, why men act the way they do, why women are different, and why people could argue against my reasoning.
