She goes on to use Abercrombie & Fitch as an example of an outside force causing girls to be sexual because they put out a shirt that says “who needs brains when you have these” on the chest. She goes on to make the point that a group of teen girls joined together to boycott these shirts, but she does not acknowledge that this boycott was led by Girls as Grantmakers, a feminist group. She wanted to work around the facts to prove that girls do not want to sexual and are willing to prove this by boycotting an institution. Laura Sessions Stepp uses examples that support “the emotional/ physical movement” by saying sex causes women to suffer from diseases and mental illness. She believes hookups cause women to become distant and no longer want relationships.
When reading “Taming of the Shrew” by Shakespeare and watching “10 Things I hate About You” directed by Gil Junger, the stereotypes and gender role of Katherine (Kat) and the sisterly relationship between Katherine (Kat) and Bianca come across. “10 Things I Hate About You” is an effective adaptation for “Taming of the Shrew” because they both illustrate the theme of women challenging their stereotypical roles in society. Women are supposed to be quiet and not have any opinion or say in the society they are in. In “Taming of the Shrew” and “10 Things I hate About You”, it is difficult for Katherine (Kat) to have a say due to the men in their society. In the film, Kat has opinions on things, but is not allowed to express them because the men just don’t care or they find it funny since women are supposed to keep their mouths shut.
Nevertheless, she does not try to actually make a difference and tackle any patriarchic beliefs and / or sexism nor does she want to be associated with being a feminist. This role is exclusively left to Shazzer: She voices her opinion on male privilege and dominance in our society very directly and loudly which is why she tends to be seen as a “ranting”, angry woman from the outside (e.g. from Bridget and her friends or her coworker) – much like the image of a “strident feminist” Bridget is describing in the beginning. She seems to fit the stereotypical version of a man-hating and bra-burning feminist that would like nothing more than to ban men completely from society in many ways as she always points out how men are responsible for everything. When it comes to her love life though, Shazzer cannot completely follow her radical feminist belief and act as though having to wait for a call from a potential love interest had no effect on her.
In order for Christine’s argument against sexist males to be more powerful, she uses a rhetorical device called the topos of modesty, which means that she willingly appears more ignorant. This ignorance helps play out her existential crisis and makes it seem more real that she is starting to believe what men say about women. Christine tells Lady Reason that she feels as though being a woman in this time period is a waste of space if she was only placed here to make men miserable. Reason helps Christine decipher her own self-consciousness and sift through the negative thoughts of the anti-female writers by showing Christine that she, as well as all women, have a significant place in society. This is the first example of how Christine criticizes medieval European society.
She felt as though she was better than both of these individuals. Her words and actions spoke volumes to the readers. The unexpected twist in this story was that Monica was sexually unsatisfied and not having orgasms. Her sister tries to bring up the topic, but Monica attempts to change the subject and then yells at her sister to stop talking. At the end of the story, Monica mentions that if Claire has any information or pamphlets from the workshop that she would be willing to look at them (Meyers, 2017
Both women turn against each other when it comes to a man, which is something that women in both literature and reality have been stereotyped to do. This scene shows how ignorant that stereotype is because it can be clearly seen both of these women would be respected in society and are probably well educated, so they would be able to work out their differences in a more civilized manner. The second stereotype they represent is that of a man hating feminists. The two women join together against the men, and begin making comments about how cowardly all men are. This makes it seem as though they think that they are better than men.
Continuing with the example, the title says “Cool party mom, accused of” the word accused is loading and could have been replaced with a nicer word such as proof or seen. These words throughout the text are vulgar and really appeal to the reader. Another example is when a witness says “no respect!” this shows that the women is not nice and gives a bad vibe. There could have been other words such as she is not kind or something along those lines. So, now this essay has ultimately gone through the three ways that the text can be deviated from the text, to entertain
The speakers in the two poems; “To Coy His Mistress” and “My Last Duchess”, were flawed due to the ignorance of their view of women; given that all they believe is that women are on earth to please every man’s need, which is mainly sex. The similarities, and differences, between the two speakers of the two poems, show the real intentions of the speakers have towards the women in the two poems. The speakers in the poem had one belief about women, they are only meant to make men happy and feel good. The imagery used in “To Coy His Mistress” helps create a better mental picture of what the speaker wanted from the woman. The speaker persistently tries to persuade the woman in the poem to have a sexual moment with him because his feels that since
She proves it by showing the character’s thoughts, by telling the story using the third person limited ()and also by making it appealing to our senses. To begin, the author uses characterization in her short story in order to show just how difficult it can be to start a meaningful relationship when both partners are still quite unfamiliar with one and other. Firstly, when Robert and Margot were about to engage in coitus, Robert says; “I always wanted to fuck a girl with nice tits”. The fact that the author chooses to use the words “nice tits” shows that the only thing that interests Robert in this relationship would be Margot’s body. It reveals just how meaningless the relationship between these two, which can almost be called strangers, truly was.
