His casual approach to sexual violence mirrors the violence throughout 1984. In this scenario, the sexual violence is dehumanizing the woman in the movie, just like women are dehumanized by sexual assault in society today. Despite sometimes appearing as a foreign problem, the dismissal of sexual assault is very prominent in society today. The United States 45th president, Donald Trump, has allegedly sexually assaulted nineteen women (NPR). These accusations surfaced before his election and after he bragged about “grabbing p***y”.
The jury was corrupted by bias thoughts which resulted in an unfair trial. That did not go in favor of the accused, in this case, the one accused was Miguel, he was accused of sexual;y harassing two girls in a bathroom. He pleaded innocent, also stating that they have the wrong person. One of the jurors, on the other hand, stated that Peña Rodriguez was guilty of sexual assault because he was Mexican and that “Mexican men take whatever they want.” The fact that someone could say this and get away with it disgusts me. Later the juror was ratted out by his fellow juror, his response, “nine times out of 10 Mexican men were guilty of being aggressive toward women and young girls” in his experience, the jurors said, adding that H.C. called the defendant “an illegal.” (Peña
In the beginning, Esteban marries Clara who is an eccentric and feminist women. One night when Clara dissatisfied him, “he lost control and struck her in the face, knocking her against the wall…finally [she] opened her eyes. Blood flowing from her nose [and] spat out several teeth” (Allende 200-201). Allende emphasizes how harshly Esteban assaulted Clara by using imagery of the blood flowing out of her nose, and the action of her spitting out her teeth to illustrate to the reader how immensely hard Esteban struck her. Following this assault, Esteban has no legal repercussions, developing how male violence towards women in Chilean society is acceptable.
Roman men did not court their young lovers precisely because they believed their virility was based on their masculinity and domination. The process of courting and persuasion did not exemplify power or domination so it would not have been done by the Roman man. Pederast relationships were condemned by the law not because of the age or sex of the partner, but because it hindered the status of the younger partner. Roman society had no qualms about having sex with young boys, but the issue lied with was the masculinity of the young boy being affected by being the receptive
The Scarlett Letter is based on false pretense and a woman giving her sex to someone that she is not married to. A practice common amongst men however when woman have sex for pleasure and pleasure only they are labeled as whores amongst other names to elaborate Hawthorne goes on to say, “Throughout them all, giving up her individuality, she would become the general symbol at which the preacher and moralist might point, and in which they might vivify and embody their images of woman's frailty and sinful passion. Thus the young and pure would be taught to look at her, with the scarlet letter flaming on her breast,—at her, the child of honorable parents,—at her, the mother of a babe, that would hereafter be a woman, —at her, who had once been innocent, —as the figure, the body, the reality of sin. And over her grave, the infamy that she must carry thither would be her only monument.”(Hawthorne 118). This is a form of demeaning women and setting them beneath men by simply saying that they cannot do what men commonly do thus further enforcing
With such a horrific act as rape, it is impossible to ignore such things that happen involving this. Many women to this day still do not speak up or even they do, does not receive the justice they truly deserve. To the article regarding the teenager girl and how she was raped by a man “accidentally” falling into her is despicable because she never received the justice she
Angela Davis demonstrates the ongoing violent abuse as she quotes a report on sexual maltreatment in women’s prisons, “We found that male correctional employees have vaginally, anally, and orally raped female prisoners and sexually assaulted and abused them” (Davis 78). However disturbing this blunt sexual contact that male officers take with the vulnerable prisoners may be, the officers adopt even more severe tactics to harass and abuse the women as they often utilize “mandatory pat-frisks or room searches to grope women 's breasts, buttocks, and vaginal areas...” (Davis 79). To add insult to injury, women are virtually incapable of escaping from their abuser(s). Prison employees upkeep their inappropriate behavior as it is believed they will “rarely be held accountable, administratively or criminally” (Davis 78). Davis specifies that the lack of accountability for inappropriate behavior is caused by faulty administrative action as she explains, “Grievance or investigatory procedures, where they exist, are often ineffectual...” (78).
They could say that George could have rescued Lennie and ran away from the ranch like he did in weed. This is wrong because George couldn’t live a life of running and saving Lennie from all his mistakes. George wanted to settle down on his own ranch, but he couldn’t do that with Lennie messing up all the time. The opposing viewpoint could also say that Lennie was too good of a worker to be killed. But this is also incorrect because it doesn’t matter how good of a worker he is, if he keeps getting them kicked out of wherever they are.
He believed that he had the right to refuse to pay towards the war since he felt that it was an unjust, imperialistic war that allowed the government to expand its slavery’s domain. Throughout his night in jail, he emphasized that the government cannot force him to pay; however, they can punish his body. The government aims to diminish the physical strength of a human rather than one’s sense. He interprets that society has left him in jail rather than the government since he refuses to conform towards society’s ideals. After all, he’s independent and strong-willed.
Alphonso personality traits and qualities are revealed through indirect characterization. His interaction, in addition, the language he used toward Celie show the theme of injustice. Through abuse, that is how the men in novel exert their power. Alphonso nefarious behavior and hatred for women became visible on the first page when he rapes Celie, “You better not never tell nobody but God. It'd kill your mammy” (Walker 1).
