Seen greatly when Uncle Juniors puts out a head on him, because of the stupid rumor that he likes getting a BJ. Tony knows that Junior is pissed at him and his methods of earning for the family, yet Tony does it any way. Which is why I found the hit on Tony’s life justifiable, since he didn’t put any value in their relationship so why did Junior need to keep him within the family. But what gets me is this selfless persona that Tony takes on during the second season. It see so undermining of his character as a sociopathic predator.
The settings of a family which has a negative effect on family and boys. Mainly what the characters are inclined to do against each other, the dysfunctional family life and the one parent family. The story has increased my knowledge about gangs and the impact on boys, that positivity of one person is better than the adversity of a gang. The author Scott Monk message to boys is being in a gang, especially a criminal gang is a futile, it is informative in regards that boys can do positive things in their life, that the need to turn their back on gangs and violence. Another aspect is that fighting amongst each gang is fostering a criminal environment.
While the plot of Black Swan Green principally depicts a male protagonist, Jason, and his development despite pressures imposed by other male antagonists (Wilcox, Mr. Nixon, his father, etc…), it is the female characters in the novel that inspire Jason to resolve his conflicted image. In the era of this novel, and even now (though depublicized by gender equality movements), the development of boys was considered to be radically different than that of young woman. Boys were supposed act cool around bullies(Ross) and older cousins(Hugo), play violent social games and smoke. Unfortunately for Jason, his “Inside-You”, the person that he really is, does not align itself with these socially acceptable practices. Instead, he elects to write poetry,
This encourages the rest of the boys to become hunters since they too want to feel the sense of power that Jack appears to have. This quote shows that after a certain amount of time humans began to change and reveal their “true” selves. Jack begins to portray a darker character who enjoys destroying those around him. This change from being an uptight choir boy to a savage demonstrates that men are inherently evil since no one taught Jack to act this way. Instead he is the one who is encouraging those around to become more like him.
In this scene it is evident that Prospero suffered from both psychological and physical violence bestowed upon him by his brother Antonio. Evidently Antonio’s wish was to have Prospero and his daughter killed however they were saved by Gonzalo a trustful councilor who set them up for a prosperous life on the island. It becomes clear that the violence in this play caused by Prospero was brought upon him and is therefore influenced by his brother’s treatment towards him, again we see that the need for power overpowers the love between the two brothers and later leads to a series of psychological torture for other

She has an inferiority complex and loath herself. However being the masochist that she is, she takes pleasure from being insulted by her sister who is acting as the Mistress(When Claire was insulting her, She replied “I’m starting. I’m starting to fly” Because those insults would heighten the fantasy of revenge for the mistress to be even sweeter.

Thus Tony proposes his idea of a “man box” which shows how men believe they should act, examples include: “Do not be ‘like a woman’, View women as Property/Objects, Demonstrate power-control, and aggression/Dominance.” In addition, Tony provides his own experience as a father and his enlightenment of where men obtain these rash qualities — from our fathers. Thus starting at a young age we are taught how to “be a man” however, this root of manhood is exaggerated and society is to blame. Tony Porter also gives his testimony about when he was twelve years old and how he was pressured into “being a man” by having sex with a woman who was incapable of understanding that she was being raped, fortunately, Tony did not copulate with her but acted as if he did so. In the end, our society must change to fit everyone's needs without forcing others to abide by the distorted expectations that damage our self-being and others around
As a young child, Okonkwo would tell his sons stories of violence, and to stop the beatings he would receive for sharing his thoughts on them, Nwoye pretended to enjoy them. “And so he feigned that he no longer cared for women’s stories. And when he did this he saw that his father was pleased, and no longer rebuked him or beat him” (Chapter 7, P 4). The wrath of his father and gender roles in the society he was growing up in pushed him to be someone he was
Young men in patriarchal societies encouraged to act in ways so that societal norms remain intact. In war zones when home and life are under threat and invaded upon, these norms get further strengthened. Young men are supposed to act out their masculinities by resisting the military invasion. The expectation to uphold the gender roles becomes far more demanding in war zones. In the context of the novel The Collaborator we see how often the narrator feels ashamed of himself as all his friends join the Jehad against India leaving him alone.
The method used to induct Mann into a violent world will spark as much controversy among readers as it does among characters in the book, but in the end, Man (who fares better than his friend Kee-lee) does learn some important lessons that go beyond survival.

Even a small, kind, innocent human being thinks that Kony is a bad guy; hence, he must be a very bad guy. Viewers can then make a decision that Kony should definitely be arrested and in order to achieve this, they need to get involved. This appeal also captures attention of parents because Jason Russell’s son might remind them of the children. This drivers them into taking actions even more. To sum up, appeals are used in order to motivate people to become involved, however a combination of appeals strengthens the message significantly.
