Hollandsworth creates fear when he provides a testimony from Brooke Breedwell, a beauty pageant contestant during the time of Ramsey, which describes her fear of being targeted by the same killer of Ramsey (492). This us of the scare tactic takes away from the argument because Hollandsworth is trying to get the reader emotionally involved. Additionally Hollandsworth indirectly uses hasty generalization when he uses a quote from Deborah Tolman, a professor at Hunter College and author of Dilemmas of Desire: Teenage Girls Talk about Sexuality: “no one wants to deal with the bigger picture, which is the day-to-day sexualization of all our daughter” (494). Here, it makes the assumption that everyone feels that his or her daughter is being
For instance, the very first sentence of Hollinger’s essay starts off with this quote, “As Stephen Neale suggests, an intimate relationship seems to exist among the filmic presentation of the horror monster, the castration anxiety it evokes, and the cinematic representation of the female form.” (Hollinger pg. 243 of the Monsters book), in which she uses to intrigue the reader and to give the reader an idea about the work. Hollinger tells the reader that Neale thinks that the usual origin of a monster in a film is due to a relationship that went wrong and also claims that men are more vulnerable to certain anxieties. The placement of her reference to Neale’s essay allows the reader to conduct an idea of what the essay is going to be about and makes the reader think about what is more threatening between feminine monsters or masculine monsters.
“A Madea Halloween” movie will be funny, scary, and dramatic. I believe people should go watch this movie because Tyler Perry has a background for making funny and dramatic movies.

The woman had only recently made the decision to stay with that gender completely. As the friend shared pictures of herself with Wilchins, Wilchins noticed how keenly her friend was analyzing her reactions with each different picture. This seemed to shock Wilchins as she herself is quoted saying “Which is to say that I do not, at first blush, inspire confidence as the best possible judge of such matters. I could not care less how either of us is read by nontranssexuals” (Wilchins). I believe this to be a powerful statement as she states although she does not care about how she is read, the effects of social inspection are often great.
Disturbing would be the one word I would describe Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman’s film Born Into Brothels. However, a disturbing reaction is precisely what the directors were looking for. The purpose of this film was to frighten and scare the audience on how some people actually lived in our world. The film wanted to make people aware of the horrible and unjust conditions of many women and children in the Red Light District in India.
However, social media negatively influences the role women should play in men's eyes. Women are depicted as powerful but also threatening figures throughout the movie.

People who are pro-choice are more likely to let women decide whatever they want. When women are allowed to feel free in their own bodies and make their own decisions about what happens to their bodies it makes them feel powerful. They feel like they have unlimited autonomy with their bodies and reproductive systems. The women who feel and think that they have power over themselves feel a sense of security and feel like they have the same rights as men. Women should never have to feel pressure to carry a fetus or to feel less than superior to men.
No woman should have to suffer from discrimination just because they wear skirts. Ruby Oberhardt explains the many ways women are discriminated against. Imagine being a women and being constantly overruled by the male population. Never given the hope of doing what they desire.
