Blanche’s Monologue The passage cited from “A Streetcar Named Desire” reveals the uncommon aspects of her character: the ideal notion of love and seething desire within herself, sexual struggle and conflict, pretentiousness of the ‘grand’ lady and the financially strained woman. It seems like Blanche’ ranting toward Stella but it actually likes Blanche talks to herself. First of all, after yesterday’s poker game, drunken Stanley cruelly abused Stella in public. However, Stanley’s sweet words and frank actions persuade Stella to forgive him, go back home, and spend the night with him. On the one hand, Blanche cannot understand why Stella decides to tolerate Stanley’s violent behaviors.
Portnoy's Complaint tells us a story of a family too, but using completely different technique named satire. I’d like to think that Roth wrote the Portnoy’s Complain as a satire, because of the real American Jew character, in one way relentlessly comic and bitterly to. I feel a sense of outrage is coming from the Jew consciousness, of “so much consciousness that the Jew has been through it all so many times before”. (Kilday, 1969). Portnoy himself calls it “The Alexander Portnoy Show!” His parents praise and badger him until Alex finds himself in a paradoxical position: his family considers him as “princes…and saviours and sheer perfection on the one hand, and such bumbling incompetent, thoughtless, helpless, selfish, evil little shits, little
Love triangles are common theme in many books, one very well-known one is in the Twilight Saga. The Vincent Boys by Abbi tells the tale about Ash, Beau and Sawyer who all grew up together; Beau and Ash being the crazy ones and Sawyer was the one who also ‘bailed’ (not from jail just sticky situations) them out of trouble. Sawyer knew that Ash liked Beau and vice versa, but he was a ‘selfish bastard’ and asked her out so he could have her for himself. This split up them and Beau derailed completely becoming the town’s bad boy. While Sawyer is away, Beau and Ash begin a relationship in secret.
For instance, Anzaldúa recalls a time in which two men yelled homophobic slurs at her brother and his partner on their first anniversary, to which she replies, “and they had to be Latinos.” (206) This is a prime example of two of Anzaldúa’s identities – her Latino and queer identities – at a clear collision. She wants to be able to support her fellow Latinos, however, when it is them who are threatening her queer identity, she feels ashamed and confused. However, she comes to terms with her conflicting identities by comparing herself to a “spider woman” with “one foot on brown soil, one on white, one in straight society, one in the gay world, the man’s world, the women’s, one limb I the literary world, another in the working class, the socialist, and the occult worlds.” (206) Through this way of viewing herself, it can be clearly seen that Gloria Anzaldúa has multiple moving parts that make up her identity, and each part is just as important as the
Arranged Marriage; It’s So 16th Century Arranged marriage is a fairly controversial subject, but how is it linked to Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’? As much as even the most cultured person would like to think arranged marriage is in the past, there are still many cultures and countries today that consider this a tradition. It just so happened that on a beautiful, sunny Wednesday last week, I was scrolling through my news feed. Instantly, an article titled ‘Forced Marriage’ grabbed my attention. This news article reported that unbeknownst to a vulnerable young girl from South Asia, her wicked parents had made the decision to arrange a marriage with her male cousin.
Kate Winslet posted a photo of herself on Facebook with no make-up on, to urge women to embrace themselves and battle negative body image. Kate wrote on her page, "I know I am chubby, I have big feet, and have bad hair days. When I was growing up and even now, I hardly hear any positive reinforcement about body image from any female. I mostly hear negative feedbacks. But I know, most of the negatives comes from the people who are busy rejoicing over other people ' insults by liking demeaning post on Facebook when in reality they don 't even like themselves."
Emilia’s opinion about the betrayal expresses a contemporary view of the relationship between the sexes. Even though it might be hard for us to really connect to this today but during the Elizabethan era, these were more than just views, it was the harsh reality of how men and women treated each other. Othello is a book that successfully portrays this relationship. In the book Othello, Emilia states, “ Tis not a year or two shows us a man; They are all but stomachs, and we all but food; To eat us hungrily, and when they are full, They belch us. Look you, Cassio and my husband” (3.4.92-95).Emilia’s statement clearly suggests what it is like to be a woman during her time and how men would treat them.
Before creating the dashing character that Flynn or Eugene is, a ‘Hot Man Meeting' was set up with thirty women who described the qualities they find most appealing in a man, the production team of Tangled said: "...all the ladies of the studio came into the ‘Hot Man Meeting,' where we gathered pictures of their favorite handsome men—we collected pictures from the Internet and books and women's wallets. They were very specific about what they liked and what they didn't like." And ta-da you got the striking character. Now remember Flynn is a thief originally, but please do not go that far, it's his personality that should matter, watch him, learn from him, and practice his smirk, the smirk that makes women weak. Understand that if you are not comfortable with the art of smirking then just smile.
Many people promise many people promise to love their spouse ‘til death do them apart but after reading the stories ,” “55 miles to the Gas Pump”, “popular mechanics”, and the cranes” , through irony, the authors have proven the wrong meaning of marriage. In the story “55 miles to the Gas Pump” (327), it is a story that dispersed into two separate points of view with interesting irony. The story is about a married couple who live seemingly different lives. The story is introduced by describing Rancher Croom’s physical appearance which created a messy perception in the readers head. Mr. Croom appears to be messy since he appears to be drunk on a regular basis.
Her choice in using the term “throne” makes the reader question the validity of the political power of the family, but more importantly, the way in which she uses “throne” illustrates her feminist views through satire - views with which her now-shocked audience would be onboard. The banter in the situation is poking fun at the Clintons (with their support from the beast of the century) and their progressive supporters, yet again, helping to develop the respect-lacking, mocking tone of the columnist. To further my point, in the article “Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood’s Oldest Horror Story,” Weinstein’s actions were described as “perversion, grotesque, and maladroit du seigneur long before Hillary blindly accepted money” from the man. This strong diction serves to demonstrate Dowd’s criticizing outlook upon the Clinton family accepting funds from a sexual predator, as well as her outlook on the predator himself - clearly displaying Dowd’s liberal, feminist viewpoint on sexual misconduct. Dowd chooses to include these political examples to employ pathos, evoking a sense of shock in her audience, as a means of getting the audience to help her with her own feminist political agenda; by shedding light on all of the mistreatment of women in government, Dowd is a
Jesse M. Wellens and his girlfriend Jeana have done countless of rude and silly pranks on each other in YouTube since 2007. Their YouTube series has garnered over 1 billion views and numerous laughs to start with. While I believe they do love each other, I fear one day the couple will lose an eye or limb by their reckless pranks. Here’s a couple gems from their YouTube series Jaboody Dubs/Studios: Dubbing over movies is not a new idea on the internet. However Jaboody Dubs/Studios have the funniest dubs of awful television commercials, infomercials, cartoons and awful b-movies you would have ever seen.
Peers described Jay as “He was ‘mean, intimidating, shady’” (Episode Eight). Jay probably felt intimidated by Adnan, Adnan’s this good, well liked guy, who’s close to his girlfriend, the person he’d do anything for, the prom queen and Adnan the prom king. I think that Adnan might’ve mentioned to Stephanie about Jay and Jenn’s relationship, how close they are, and that he spends the nights at her house. Stephanie then brings this up to Jay, saying how Adnan had been saying these things to her, Jay gets angry and wants revenge. He kills Hae, shows Adnan the body and tells him not to get in the way of him and Stephanie, then says that if Adnan doesn’t help him, he’ll blame it all on Adnan.
Fans of veteran comedian Bill Cosby took to social media on January 23 to voice their support and celebrate a big legal win. Fans tweets well-wishes to Cosby 's official Twitter account and gleefully said they knew all along that he was innocent of raping 40 women. The news broke on Thursday, January 21, but didn 't receive media attention until Saturday morning, prompting some supporters to accuse the media of deliberately tarnishing Cosby 's image and refusing to acknowledge his innocence. Even those on the opposite side of the subject, who believe that Bill Cosby raped at least some of the women who accused him took to social media to weigh in. It 's unlikely that either side will change their opinions on Bill Cosby and his guilt or innocence anytime soon.

The marriage between Daisy and Tom started off with Tom cheating on their honeymoon. This endless act pattern never ceases. While Tom does claim that “[o]nce in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time,” Daisy snapily replies “you 're revolting.” Even at the beginning of the book, Daisy refers to Tom as “a brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen.” She married him because of his status and the “pomp and circumstance” he brought. Tom also has a significant relationship with another woman, Myrtle. This illicit relationship is quickly shown to be shallow as after Myrtle brought up Daisy, “making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.” He also only thinks of himself after Myrtle is fatally killed, trying to figure out the best way to protect himself, and particularly distraught about her death.
