The people of Maycomb have no sympathy for Mayella or what is happening in her broken down home until they realize a colored man is involved. Tom Robinson is innocent of this crime but citizens of Alabama would never want to admit two white people are lying and a colored man is telling the truth. “Yes, suh. I felt sorry for her, she seemed to try more’n the rest of ‘em--” (Lee 264). Tom Robinson only wanted to help Mayella with her chores out of pure kindness when Mayella kissed him.
I’m not promoting the verbal, mental, and physical abuse of women by any means, but it’s tough to beat up on Proctor because everyone was treating their wives poorly at this point in time. Now, not everyone was having affairs with eighteen year olds then and he needs to be held accountable for that, but John Proctor definitely has a minor understanding of moral values. Nevertheless, Proctor did fall under the charm of Abigail Williams, which makes him lose the moral high ground he once held, thus taking away his status of the perfect
In this quote, the narrator forces his brother to touch his own coffin. There is no legitimate reason to make anyone touch their own coffin, other to be cruel, mean, and spiteful. That was exactly what the narrator did, and if his brother would not touch it he was going to leave him there. At that point in the story Doodle did not know how to walk so he would not have been able to get down at all. The narrator is also needlessly cruel to Doodle when Hurst writes “The knowledge that Doodle’s and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened.
But why do they laugh? " asked the Savage in a pained bewilderment. Because they have been desensitized to human suffering, the citizens of the World State find it funny—even entertaining. "Charming!
Overall this does not help our society at all, but really there is nothing we can do about it. There’s people in this world with no arms or legs but we deal with them. There’s also people that are sociopaths and phychotic and we just have to deal with it. The only time we can do something about it, is if they harm are doing something crazy like their usual ways.
This proves his hunger for power so well because there is no other reason to take off her leg except to have power over her. He is not going to use it, he is not going to sell it, the one and only reason why he would steal her leg is to have complete control over her. Another example of power-hunger taking over someone’s emotions is in “The Veldt”, when George decides to shut off the nursery, the enchanting room his kids love so much. The devastated children feel completely powerless as their love was taken away from them, as they proceeded to “[scream] and [prance] and [throw] things. They yelled and sobbed and swore and jumped on the furniture”(Bradbury 8).
This response clearly explains that rape is the worst thing that can happen to a woman because men see women as only her sexual purity, because it is the only part of her they care about. Claiming the rape is the worst thing that can happen to a woman but not a man maintains rape culture 's belief that men cannot be raped and that women solely exist for men’s pleasure. These beliefs are toxic to young adults and children because it encourages males to never speak up if they are raped, because they will be made fun of and called liars, and encourages females to believe that they are only worth something if a man says or believes so. Overall the beliefs that only women can be raped and that men never are can affect people for the rest of their lives and cause victims to suffer in
Should ballons be bande No they should not be bande there is no reason for. It and it's so dumb to band balloons there is no reason for that. It just doesn't mack now seems to band the coolest thing we used to like to play with.
(TKAM, pg. 333). However, Helen did not easily escape racism. One morning, Bob Ewell followed Helen closed behind her while she was on her way to work, murmuring foul words at her, for no reason other than that she was Tom’s wife and he was racist. Although he did not attack her, Helen was terrified of him. Mr. Link Deas made Bob Ewell leave Helen alone, but she was still frightened by him.
One example of this is how they viewed the “new money” as nobodies. The biggest example of their lack in morality, however, was in how Tom and Daisy Buchanan dealt with Daisy’s murder of Myrtle Wilson. Daisy let Gatsby take the full blame for it without any expression of guilt or remorse, even though she supposedly loved him. Gatsby’s death was even caused by taking the blame for Daisy’s crime, and yet she did not bother to attend his funeral. “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy - they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness...and let other people clean up the mess they had made”
Letting him know exactly how she found him, by the broken circle of branches he had recently rolled around in. She speaks harshly “Your eyes are as a flame, but our brothers have neither hope not fire. We wish to be damned with you, rather than blessed with all our brothers” (Rand 83) The words she speaks are forbidden but they are her opinion, and all she wants is to be free. They are seen as the damned but feel the exact opposite.
He knows Lennie would never do anything huge huge like kill someone or any huge living being. George always told him to stay away from Curley’s wife because she’s trouble and Lennie never listens and never knows when to stop even when it’s turning into something horrible. “ And she continued to struggle, and her eyes were wild with terror he shook her then, and he was angry with her… And he shook her; and her body flopped like a fish and then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck” (Steinbeck chpt 5). George does not know what Lennie has done yet but since Lennie did this Curley is about to go for a man hunt for George’s friend Lennie and this makes us feel sympathetic that he is about to lose his friend.
I blamed it all on Tituba like always, no one is going to believe her, she is just a slave. It is so easy to blame everything on her! Mary looked like she might explode and end up telling everyone the truth about what really went on the night, but I scared her off. None of the other girls will tell on us, they all worship me too much.
These stereotypes are used against all battered women however, most abusers choose parts of body that are covered and no one can see and they are really nice around other people, but very cruel to their wife. Also, one of victim 's Sister in-law said there was a car and she could have left when he was away, but Shirley insist he chained her in the basement when he leaves. This stereotypes about battered women make Shirley and many other women who are battered not to press charges and when they do nobody believes them.
While Levi felt that, his friend gave him a lesson which is to hang on to their humanity as much as they can and being clean is one way. Levi doesn’t agree to this and he doesn’t want to be controlled by someone. He has no choice right now. Either he follows the rules or he may be killed. The torture these prisoners have to go through.
