The notion of a “queer way of life” presented in Judith Halberstam’s essay, Queer Temporalities and Postmodern Geographies, can be quite jarring upon one’s first encounter with the alternative perception of the normal progression of a human being’s life; however, the continuous use of queer time and space found in Western contemporary films demonstrates our society’s acceptance, and desire, for representations of alternative ways of living. The complex characters and storylines developed in the famous musical and film Rent capture the essence of queer space and time, which is the possibility of existence lying “outside of those paradigmatic markers of life experience -- namely, birth, marriage, reproduction, and death” (Halberstam 365).

Post 1 Micheal Tan’s article talks about his opinion of the film Zombading. He is not happy about the stereotypes in the film and the way Zombading provide a potential opportunity for the homophobia people to laugh at LGBT characters. To me, stereotypes are not a problem because the film is full of representations which are not stereotypes. Like Jigs.

After much difficulty to get a girl, he ends up with a beautiful one who he loses his virginity too. Additionally, in Superbad, all three boys main goal is to lose their virginities.

Another aspect of maturation/loss of innocence in the films is the characters and they're dealing with alcohol.

Putting an overweight contender can relate to some teens that are also overweight that wish to do something that overweight people usually do not do. This movie also appeals to adults that watched the original series. These adults will want to go see this new Baywatch instillation because it was part of their past and seeing it would be very nostalgic.
J.D. Salinger does not censor any of these aspects in his book which was unusual for the conservative times it was written in. This is one of the reasons why the book became popular back in 50s.The emotion of teenage angst is expressed through Holden’s bitter and sarcastic remarks towards the people around him, his falling grades, his need to not confirm to the rules of society. This is the reason Catcher in the Rye has a large number of adolescent fans and although technologically the times have changed, but on an emotional level the alienation that Holden’s character feels is still relatable to any teenager, making it a popular work even today. As Holden very aptly says in regards to the feeling of
