Jenni Olson herself writes “…prompts his double talking and double acting to maintain his tough guy image.” (Olson 78). Sandy and Danny really do like each other, but they face a lot of peer pressure from their friends. The peer pressure forces Danny to act like a jerk to Sandy and exaggerate their summer romance. This provides a divide between the two that is reinforced by bad girl Rizzo who sings “Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee” making fun of Sandy, saying she is just a good girl. Rizzo also mentions whilst talking with Frenchy that Sandy is “too pure to be pink” saying that Sandy would not fit in with their group.
Anybody can do anything they want. ' ' Kathy does, however, try to give her main tireless stud, Roger, lessons in social justice in the midst of the most graphically pornographic and stunningly dull sex passages - a juxtaposition that I find one of the few comic touches in all three works, even if not redemptive. I 'm at a puritanical disadvantage for a reviewer in not being able to cite much of the dialogue except maybe ' 'Ooh. Ooh. Ah.
Blanche’s Monologue The passage cited from “A Streetcar Named Desire” reveals the uncommon aspects of her character: the ideal notion of love and seething desire within herself, sexual struggle and conflict, pretentiousness of the ‘grand’ lady and the financially strained woman. It seems like Blanche’ ranting toward Stella but it actually likes Blanche talks to herself. First of all, after yesterday’s poker game, drunken Stanley cruelly abused Stella in public. However, Stanley’s sweet words and frank actions persuade Stella to forgive him, go back home, and spend the night with him. On the one hand, Blanche cannot understand why Stella decides to tolerate Stanley’s violent behaviors.
#1 In the short story “The Lesson” by Toni Cade Bambara, the conflict between Sylvia and Miss Moore is that while Miss Moore wants Sylvia to strive for something better, Sylvia believes that she is wasting Sylvia’s time. In the text, it stated “And the starch in my pinafore scratching the shit outta me and I'm really hating this nappy-head bitch and her goddamn college degree. I'd much rather go to the pool or to the show where it's cool.” When Sylvia would much rather be doing something that keeps her cool during a hot summer afternoon, Miss Moore takes her and her friends to a toy store. Miss Moore was taking the children out to teach them about their socioeconomic class, but Sylvia felt as if Miss Moore was mocking her. Sylvia did not like that Miss Moore had a college degree because Sylvia’s parents would make her go with Miss Moore because of it.
It is noticeable to everyone around her that she’s straying into dangerous areas of her sexual tendencies/habits. She’s continued an unconventionally long and exclusive sexual relationship with Henry Foster. As Fanny cautions Lenina, saying that she may get in trouble, she defends herself and says “No, there hasn 't been anyone else.... And I jolly well don 't see why there should have been" (36). Lenina knows that she’s consciously broken the regulation that everyone belongs to everyone else but continues to do so after by choosing the socially misfit Bernard Marx, therefore elucidating the impression that she rebels against her conditioning for sexual
Chaucer also uses satire in a more comical way to illustrate how women can’t keep a secret. The Wife of Bath reveals this trait when she says “by heaven, we women can’t conceal a thing” (Chaucer 341), mocking the suggestion that women have an inability to keep a secret. Chaucer also makes fun of the knight’s condition using the irony of women being incapable of keeping a secret as the only thing that can save him. Mocking women and their incapability to not share private information only further reveals Chaucer’s satire.
In similar fashion to above, Odysseus shows disloyalty to Penelope, but this time, by flirting with other women and leading them on. Odyssey flirts with many women throughout the Odyssey, but one that really stood out, was him with Nausicaa and even her handmaids. Nausicaa the beautiful daughter of King Alcinous, first saw Odysseus when he ended up on her island after his long journey at sea. Odysseus came out of the bushes with nothing on, keeping his eyes on the beautiful women; “So Odysseus moved out...about to mingle with all those lovely girls...” (6. 148-149).
Reynolds defines hate speech as something that is very difficult to define because there is never going to be an idea or opinion that everybody agrees with without any contradiction. He states that hate speech is “meaningless” and is just a form of speech that people contradict. He parallels hate speech to “racist, sexist, or poor in taste”, but doesn 't explicitly say that hate speech is exactly that. Additionally, Reynolds says that fighting words are not considered hate speech, but rather an allurement to fight one-on-one. Reynolds is basically saying that there is no such of a thing as hate speech because all speech is protected whether it is homophobic, racist, sexist etc.
After all, she represents the scarlet letter: wild, passionate, and completely oblivious to the rules, mores, and legal statutes of the time. “But again Hawthorne, by connecting the above moral platitude and by portraying the elf child not as treacly little paragon- like little Eva- but rather as a goad as much as a comfort to her mother elevates the emotional tone of the situation so that it is hardly recognizable.”(William 3). Pearls had a individualistic passionate innocence. Hawthorne presents hypocrisy with forgiveness. Peal does not see her mother as a sinner because she has been isolated by puritan society and as a result does not have the same beliefs.
Where the classic concept goes, so does the story, for example, “Megan gave me a glare you could have used to cut metal, don’t talk to the weirdo because people were staring at us now, staring and snickering” (7). Megan, this book’s girl-next-door equivalent character, is afraid to break through societal norms, where people of two different social classes become friends, and warns the heroic (and, in this case, uncaring) Justin not to stray from the safety of the path she has taken. Justin takes interest in the so-called weirdo, and the unlikely friendship is born again. This is not the only place where the story resembles others of the same type, as is proven by the authors words, “McManus did this and you let him! You fucking let him, day after day after day!
What the hell, Adaira couldn’t remember her friend ever using the phrase enjoy pertaining to a hot dude. Those damn Selkie’s and their magic they played havoc with a woman’s head and heart. Maybe her friend was better off not knowing Torin was a Selkie. She’d have a talk with Torin and ask him not to use his enchantment on her friend. It would only be fair to keep the playing field clear of mystic powers.
At one point in the text Margo tells q everything uglier up close” by saying this she’s trying to tell Q that she is not everything that he thinks she is. She furthers this by also saying “from here, you can’t see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is.” This scene in paper towns shows us the obsession Q has for Margo. He has built the image of a perfect girl, and insists upon only seeing her, and not the way she is in reality. We see this through different scenes where he defends Margo, not allowing others to taint his image of her, and when margo says that everything is uglier up close, he says “not you”. Q’s obsession distorts his ability to see reality.
Aren’t you?” This angle of the camera through legs represents the provocative nature of this shot and the sexualization of Mrs. Robinson. The scene then cuts to a medium shot of Ben looking over the shoulder of Mrs. Robinson, while she is laughing with a blank expression on Ben’s face. Overall this scene start to explain one of the main themes in the movie. The idea that Ben is someone with no relationship experience what so ever and he idea that the women are the sexual aggressor in the movie. This relates to my theme of the youth looking to change their life and revolt from their parents beliefs, in the concept that a fling with an older woman is unheard of and no one would approve of
Taylor is talks about Cohen how she hates the stereotype of how feminist cannot be funny. In the article Cohen is trying prove that women be funny. That is all being shown in this quote: "Feminists get a bad rap as having no sense of humor, and I want to counter that image". This is quote was from the quote that was something Cohen herself said. It shows that she very want to prove that comedy could represent feminist power and meanly feminist could be funny.
Despite this Williams also imparts to his audience the negative impacts of disguising one 's sexuality behind the guise of what is considered normal and proper. This is presented by Blanches descent into madness due to her inability to act properly on her sexual urges. Lastly, Williams demonstrates how Blanche is not at fault for not knowing how to act on her desires. She was brought up in a world that told her that expressing her sexuality or even having sexual desires was wrong, she never learned how to deal with desire. This is why A Streetcar Named Desire should not be dismissed as a cautionary tale that warns individuals not to embrace desires.
