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.
Believing in a religion other than Christianity is fatal. Reading, writing or speaking out of character result in death. Fear is made custom in society in order to get people to conform to the views of the new leaders. This is the way of life in Margaret Atwood’s Novel The Handmaid’s Tale. The book is narrated by a handmaid named Offred.
Some characters in the film who belong in the dominant group are seen to accept and support the main ideology of authority while publicly seen doing so, opposing strongly the actions of V. In the film, Lewis Prothero, the propagandist for Norsefire and ex-commander of Larkhill concentration camp, lived luxuriously in his home and makes millions from his pharmaceuticals drugs and antidotes. He is publicly seen spreading hate messages and tears down V in his talk show. The same can be said for Anthony James Lilliman, the corrupt bishop at Westminster Abbey who was promoted and gifted young women to do adultery acts with. These people who enjoy their status and position in society are filled with false consciousness and are in no way noticing the problem the government and authority hold. Furthermore, it can be seen clearly that V is well aware of this.
In the parable "The Minister 's Black Veil,” Nathaniel Hawthorne aims to expose the deceitful pretense that members of society base their lives on. Hawthorne discloses the way people hastily judge one another based on looks, appearances, and behavior. He unveils the hypocrisy of society and the way it alienates whoever defy the norms or risk to uncover the covert. He reveals the moral of his allegory in a very ambiguous way through Reverend Hooper belief that everyone has a secret sin that he keeps to himself hidden from others, but certainly not from God. He uses The Black Veil on Reverend Hooper’s face as an emblem to provide evidence to support the notion that all humans are sinners in disguise.
At Ridgway’s sentencing he stated that he had picked prostitutes as his victims as he hated all of the prostitutes and did not want to have to pay them for sex (State of Washington v. Gary Leon Ridgway 2003). Ridgway also picked prostitutes as there was no aggravation in doing so and would not be noticed. Ridgway’s attitude was that a prostitute would not be missed or be reported missing, there for he could kill as many as he wanted and would never get caught (Missen, 2000). A third of Ridgway’s victims were from a minority backgrounds and most of them were younger that the 22 years old (Levi-Menzi & Shields, 2007). It is prostitutes that are more prevalent to becoming victims as they are already in harm’s way through the nature of their work and profession.
Despite enforcing the laws of the church, the summoners themselves were thought to be immoral sinners. Chaucer constructs a representative picture of the condition of the Church by depicting characters like the Friar, the Summoner and the Pardoner. The Church had then become a hotbed of immorality, corruption, and rank materialism (Aslam, 2017). The Summoner fully signify the hypocrisy and moral decay that had crept into the Church. As Chaucer described in the prologue that the Summoner had used his position for his own profits, and he would gladly accept a bribe "for in his purs he sholde ypunysshed be."
If someone has too much power, can that lead to that person becoming corrupt?. During the middle ages the church was corrupt and many church officials abused their power in order to steal money from the peasants. The Pardoner uses his speaking skills and church position to steal money from the poor peasants who don't know any better. Chaucer depicts the corruption among the Clergy during the Middle Ages through the Pardoner's tale. Chaucer also depicts how the Pardoner's appearance is a reflection of him.
The use of censorship is significant in the novel, which is due to the government's role in people’s . As a way the government censors what they feel is not acceptable, they burn books which is illegal to own, to remove them, if any person such as the old lady that will not give their books, they are killed with the books that are burned. Uses of censorship in the novel prevented many people to have the different mindsets in that society, which reinforce the government's role in the way people perceive their information. To prove the concept, a character from “Fahrenheit 451”, Captain Beatty asserts, “We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made, equal.
Lenina Crowne has been driven in many ways to rebel against her society’s beliefs and values, threatening the community, identity and stability of the World State. Inconsistency and orthodox are presumably evident in her character in the novel as she portrays as a rebellion against the assigned caste colours, a rebellion against the conditioning for recreational sex and as she portrays the potential to see past the conditioning in the
Everyone makes mistakes in life, some are excusable and some are not. Thomas Hobbes felt that if there were no contract then people would just act on instinct- rape, pillage etc- human beings in their natural state are inclined to war and distrust. There is a reason why we have the prison system, so that criminals pay for their actions and to protect the people. He states he has a wife that is expecting and two kids on the way. If he is a good and harmless guy as he states he is then it would never cross his mind to being involved in an
