The writer proved the point with relatable dialogs and an anecdote to let readers visualize a plausible situation. The author also connected this argument with argument #2 to demonstrate her point made before. Argument #4: “Women's conversational habits are as frustrating to men as men’s are to women” (Tanner 19).

Throughout the novel Antonia remains an optimistic character who always sees the glass as half full. This sense of optimism allows her to truly see and appreciate the beauty in nature and all people. She was very similar to her father in this sense, but her willingness to trust everyone leads to some of her greatest struggles. A key example of this is Larry, her fiance who abandoned and her with their child. There were rumors about Larry and his playboy nature, but Antonia choose to see the good in him and was even prepared to be married to a man who did not care as deeply for her as she believed.
She acknowledges her own position which “exposes the follies and sins of her listeners” (12-13), and gives them a slight idea of the criticism that is to come by comparing herself to an arbitrary “banquet speaker” . She then shares some humour by saying that she is not the best candidate for “the delicate art of giving an audience hell” but perhaps public figures Billy Grahams and Bishop Sherry would succeed at it. Her light hearted yet disparaging approach makes the audience more likely to accept her claims, or at least hear her
Getting together with the boys and shooting hoops or playing soccer is some of the most pure fun out there. Even for those who do not enjoy playing sports, friends can still get together and go walk around town or go to the beach. All of these activities keep you active while having fun and not, let’s say for example, sitting at home isolated and typing an essay for English.

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, a voluntary health organization out of Canada, physical health is an important role in life because it plays a big factor in mental health as well.
Holden “‘[does not] like the idea” of boys doing “crumby stuff” to girls without liking them; such ideas “stink” in Holden’s eyes, but he does not put all of the blame on boys. He says that girls “[are not] too much help, either.” Holden speculates that both sides, male and female, have faults and that there could be improvement. His realizations further bolster his stature on relationships and human tendencies. In conclusion, Holden’s ethos on girls and sexuality tied to them is very unique in comparison to other coequals he encounters in The Catcher in the Rye. Even though his success with girls is limited and that he falls victim to temptation, Holden abides by his opinion.
The logic she uses in the essay “DEAR YOUNG LADIES WHO LOVE CHRIS BROWN SO MUCH THEY WOULD LET HIM BEAT THEM” are lines such as “There is nothing better than knowing the suffering can stop than knowing you must endure but if you no longer wish to do so, you don’t have to because it is safe to withdraw your consent. There is nothing better than knowing you have some control in a situation that feels so far beyond your control.”. These lines show how serious yet logical her thought process is when it comes to her ideas and points of what consent is. When Gay appeals to emotion in her essay she uses lines such as “I am sorry our culture has treated women so poorly for so long that suffering abuse to receive celebrity attention seems like a fair and reasonable trade. We have failed you, utterly.”.

However, it is often closely linked to Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) to the point that some practitioners use the two terms synonymously (Venosa). People with ASPD do not live by the same social guidelines as their friends and colleagues. Furthermore, people with the disorder tend to be callous, have a lack of empathy, and love manipulation. People with ASPD often give no regard to how their actions may affect other individuals; often, they only give regard to their own desires. People with ASPD are less extreme than psychopaths (Cohen).
