The women benefit from these polygamist relationships because in most cases the more wives the man has the wealthier the man is. (Meekers & Franklin, 1995 para 2). In a survey, sixty percent of women would rather be in a polygamist relationship. Living the polygamist lifestyle allows the women to share the work load, and develop close friendships with other women. Women like to gossip.
So we allow as many as thirty per cent of the female embryos to develop normally. The others get a dose of male sex-hormone every twenty-four metres for the rest of the course”( Huxley 11). In simple words, by sterilizing female’s fetus, it is shown how this society relays more on males, not minding if the future offspring are based on males. Just because of this gender preference, woman have to suffer the disadvantage of going through this procedure and feeling a bit less important. Dissatisfaction among citizens in a supposedly utopian society might arise due to the fact that racism is present and a difference between males and females exists; not necessarily social classes are established based on gender, but it is for sure seen how one
Dillard’s purpose is to inform the reader of how to develop a larger range of our vision in order to get new perspectives on how to live life. She introduces logos to get to ethos. Dillard uses many interesting facts like in “Fixed”, “The female will mate with and devour up to seven males”(Dillard 60) and “If a bee is heavy with honey, the wasp drinks by licking the tongue of her unfortunate victim”(Dillard 60). The facts prove that there are intricate details about everything. The authors desired outcome is to make people want to open their minds and look more abstractly in their lives.
Jacobs, is a horror story because it talks about the controversy between the cursed monkey’s paw, and the consequences of people wishing on the monkey’s paw. The first citation that was made was to show that the Whites were greedy so they immediately wish for two hundred pounds. Then a representative from the company herbert worked at, came to inform Mr. and Mrs. White of Herbert’s death. After, Mrs. White urges Mr. White to wish Herbert back to life, now that they now the paw actually does really grant wishes. Mr. White makes the wish to bring Herbert back and Herbert comes back to the house and knocks at the door.
The female has the choice in whether or not she is inseminated, considering the females are larger and stronger than the male. The males know when to make because females must give an acceptance signal. The acceptance signal consists of the female slowing down, sticking out her ovipositor, and spreading her wings so mating can occur. Mating is completely up to the female and so far there has been no known incidence of rape occurring between fruit flies. Even if a male attempts to mate with the female, if she chooses not to mate with the make she will reject him by kicking him with her hind legs and moving away quickly.
Venus is the planet in astrology that basically everyone and their grandmother loves. Everyone wants to know about their love life, about their soulmates, all that fun stuff. In mythology, Venus was known as the goddess of love, as it was her who taught seduction to mortals. Venus was extremely beautiful, flowers growing wherever she walked. Oftentimes, the goddess was self-indulgent, and at times she could be spiteful and bitter.
The silent era animation is characterized by its imaginative and risqué topics. Sexist stereotypes were a common entertain resource. As well for women and men.

William Kong Greek Allusions Workshop Story: Cupid & Psyche Source: Greek Summary: Psyche is the most beautiful daughter of one noble king and was praised by the people for her supreme looks. Psyche’s beauty frustrated Venus (the goddess of beauty) and she forced her son cupid to shoot an arrow at Psyche to make her fall in love with a horrible monster.

Commentary: Cupid & Psyche are similar to many of today’s fairy tales. Psyche was supposed to marry a horrible monster but instead she was locked away in a high tower until her husband Cupid came to rescue her.
But Scottie is not only a detective he is one that falls in love with the female he is hired to investigate. Once again, classic noir, we see this in Laura by Otto Preminger where a detective hired to investigate a girl falls in love with her. Sound familiar? Another trope with the main character is they are often emasculated. In Scarlet Street by Fritz Lang we see that the feminized artist, Christopher Cross, is emasculated much like Scottie is in Vertigo when he is at a high place.
