Anne McClintock wrote her essay “Gonad the Barbarian and the Venus Flytrap: Portraying the female and male orgasm” to examine pornography and how it has changed throughout history and its effects on how women perform as sexual beings. McClintock focuses on the various roles of pornography such as its emphasis on voyeurism, pleasure, and the male ego. She wants her readers to know that women are still not represented in pornography to satisfy their own desires, but they are there to cater to men and their subconscious. I will analyze how McClintock argues that due to the history of sexism towards women, the roles that men and women have in pornography are inherently different because of the societal belief that women are only seen as objects of sexual desire and are solely there to satisfy the male audience.
Were moving to the town of tarnish where your father grew up. tarnish sounded like a nice place, but Sterling would come to find that, that couldn’t be father from the truth. As the family car followed the moving truck, Sterling could slowly see the scenery change from very elegant to not so what he was use to.
There are plenty of guns fights and loads of action scenes, but the grittiness is missing, replaced with a light-hearted vibe. The bad guys in the movie come across as caricatures, playing everything up to the point where the goofiness is boiling over. Much of that isn't a bad thing, as you'll definitely get a laugh or two during certain purposely funny
The completely indifferent narration and also the factual and unemotional reactions from the characters casts a surreal, dark, deadpan, and sometimes almost comical shadow over the story. For example, when George is again faced with a barrage of terrifying noises, Hazel does nothing but cheerfully comment that it was a doozy. Vonnegut's writing is rife with this kind of humor where the reader isn’t sure whether they should cringe or laugh. It’s difficult to tell if he’s being deathly serious or joking. It’s hard to be sure what’s actually happening in this story when George’s revealing thoughts are cut off, the motif of tv comes along with lots of unreliable/ manipulative broadcast, and throughout the story the reader gets the vaguest feeling that the narrator is messing with them, joking, or possibly just unemotional and deadpan in spirit.
These lines alluding to how these characters believe they are in complete control, when it is obvious to the audience that they are far from it. Cutting away from Mark and Sam, Coppola then takes us to Sam sneaking into her boyfriend’s place, where he wrestles her for the gun, ultimately shooting it at the wall. This contrasts this character’s sense of control, yet she does not think twice about it and focuses her attention on her
But this girl wasn 't just any squirrel, and she was definitely not Anastasia. No... the harder I looked, the more in disbelief I was. She was obviously myself. Smiling in a sly way, a way I only knew myself for making but in a few tones more sinister, she glared into my eyes. " Sallo, Sylvia," she answered.
His house was only, “[T]en feet wide by fifteen long . . . with a garret and a closet, a large window on each side, two trap doors, one door at the end, and a brick fireplace opposite” (41). Although, Thoreau's cabin is small, it is more than sufficient to hold his meager possessions: “My furniture consisted of a bed, a table, a desk, three chairs, a looking-glass three inches in diameter, a pair of tongs and andirons, a kettle, a skillet, and a frying-pan, a dipper, a wash-bowl, two knives and forks, three plates, one cup, one spoon, a jug for oil, a jug for molasses, and a japanned lamp” (56). His cabin along with some of his furniture were crafted from his own labor, the reason being that he finds it simple and natural to be self sufficient. Here Thoreau expands on the importance of self sufficiency, “Who knows but if men constructed their dwellings with their own hands, and provided food for themselves and families simply and honestly enough, the poetic faculty would be universally developed. . .
Those actions do not take into consideration temptation. Subjects to temptation defines a misleading character; therefore, the ability to venture away from morals provides a false interpretation. “Temptation, by its very nature, feels wrong. God 's moral law is written in the heart of every human being (Romans 1:20),
These sounds are all so familiar, and the auditory imagery makes the readers understand that reaching such a silent environment is nearly impossible. However, the following line, “Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come”, lets the readers understand that the only sound that he can stand is the mourner’s sounds. The grandiose commands to halt the time and sound create a static, silent and isolated space for the funeral, as if insulation from the progression of the everyday world was necessary for this ritual to occur(Mills 35). In the following verse, Auden appeals to visual imagery—“Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead/Scribbling on the sky the message 'He is Dead’/Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves/Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves”. This imagery has a further spatial expansion that the narrator hopes all the people in the city to mourn with him.
Victor states, “I do it even now, you see? I play false, I dance and dance. I murmur the stories in shadow or half shadow; I pretend to myself that I don't remember the names, the details, when in fact I do”. Again, Victor cannot escape the reality of his situation and the suffering of the mask he wears. His dancing is similar to the grins of the central voice’s mask, yet they have the same result of falsity.
He opened the packaging slowly and laughed to himself. “This is going to be the best BUZZ day of our lives,” Flyron said to himself. He heard her thumping eight legs squabbling across the hallway floor back towards the office. Quickly, he dropped the poison in the coffee mug and flew out of the room.
Real allies don’t call themselves allies. The title of ‘ally’ is reserved for those who do everything in their power to protect the marginalized in spite of themselves, their privilege, and the ethnocentricity that accompanies their existence. This isn’t a title that you give yourself, it’s one that you earn from your community. Around the time of the Baltimore Uprising, I became involved with a local activist group in Omaha and that made it clear what a bad “ally” I was, in fact I wasn’t an ally at all.
Soul Plane (2004), follows the airline flight of Nashawn Wade (Kevin Hart), who has an unexceptional experience on an typical airline. His small dog is classified as baggage, the airline food is awful, his buttocks gets stuck in the toilet, and his dog is sucked into the engine. He sues the airline and receives a multimillion dollar settlement, and decides to begin his own airline. On the day of the first flight of N.W.A.

As the flight continues, Nashwan finds himself running into numerous problems, as his ex-girlfriend is on the flight still upset about their break up, the inexperienced pilot (Snoop Dogg) supposedly dies from eating mushrooms that are used to treat STIs, and his cousin Muggsy begins a miniature strip club.
In no time at all, I had consumed a tall cylinder of salt and vinegar Pringles and an Almond Joy candy bar. My mouth burned from the vinegar and salt while my body felt sick from all the sugar. I hated myself for it and felt the lump in my throat, wishing I had not indulged again. I arrived at the office building early and sat in the parking lot, but soon I found sitting there was making my nerves cringe, so clutching my document called “The Forgotten Girl”, I locked my car and hurried inside to the large professional looking lobby, fearing the whole time I was being watched from windows above for no reason other than to see how fat I was. I tried to think of the words my husband would say “I’m so proud of you, you can do
For example, in the Kappa Sigma email discussed earlier, the author wrote, “*Don 't fuck middle-eastern targets. […] You want your cock smelling like falafel? Filth” (Hartmann, “Frat Email Explains Women Are "Targets," Not "Actual People"). It is clear that the author saw Middle Eastern women as sex objects who, due to racist ideology, are not worthy of even that distinction. Earlier in the email, the author explained, “I will refer to females as "targets".
