In a way I can relate to this as even today it is not uncommon for women to pride themselves on their “beauty” and there are many girl, and elder women, who are obsessed with the way they look. Although, the expectations and conventional ideas as to what a woman is valued on has changed majorly in major ways to create equality between genders sexism and misogyny still exists today. I think that an adequate example of this is the “gender pay gap”. The gender pay gap is the overall difference in pay between men and women for the exact same job, because one of them has a different anatomy to the other. Research in New Zealand which occurred in the year 2000 consequently showed that majority of the gender pay gap, between 40 and 80 percent, could be explained by the difference in occupation, industry of employment, work experience and women 's qualifications in relation to men.
These social biases come in contact with people on a daily basis, whether it is universally or locally. Biased individuals believe the prejudices they are applying to others are right without regard for the truth.

Why is it so hard for people to give up a story? Why is it that even the worst off in our society would just assume continuing to enact a story in which they are miserable? It’s hard for people to give up a story because they don’t even realize there is one. Like the narrator in the beginning was oblivious to even a creation myth, but was acting out the principles it taught without even realizing where he got these principles.

In the essay What Meets the Eye, Daniel Akst argues that look or beauty does matter in the daily life, that is, people’s life can be largely influenced or even controlled by look. Through reading Akst’s essay, I completely understand how people have different perspectives of others, as many people pay attention to and worry about how they look in the daily life. And people tend to judge others by their beauty or looks to a large extent. Akst’s ideas quite conform to and reinforce Paglia’s points that pursuing and maximizing one’s attractiveness and beauty is a justifiable aim in any society, and that good surgery discovers reveals personality. Both of them hold the idea that beauty plays an important role in people’s life and it is significant to enhance one’s beauty and attractiveness.
We all have preconceived notions about the world, its individuals, and groups of people. Some of these thoughts are grounded in fact while other are gross overgeneralization that we have been conditioned to believe. Often, our ideas about the world come from perceived authority figures in our lives such as our parents or the media. This can be dangerous because these sources are often bias and believing in these biases often causes us to judge people without really knowing them. All throughout history and literature we see examples of how preconceived notions have done more harm than good.
Radical thinkers will have to take a smaller role in society. The most influential people spread sexist propaganda. Bridging the gap is changing the messenger.

And finally, Perseus, representative of my own self-awareness, was the only hope of freeing me from my obliviousness. This realization allowed me to begin to control who I was, and provided me with an open mind to the world. I started to see the world more clearly, both for the better and for the worse. I could see the true generosity and passion in selfless acts, but I could also see the pure immorality and lack of care in the hearts of many.
In order for me to understand the concepts behind Epictetus stoic philosophies, a brief description of his handbook would be the guidance to answer accordingly to these questions. Conversely, According to Epictetus, things that are in our power give us the authority to judge right from wrong without overwhelming our character. Therefore, some things are up to us to decide while others are not. For example, we have the power over our minds, but not the power over our reputations because this is usually decided by what people may think of us. We do not hold the power over our possessions because this could be under the power of an intentional thief.
The essence of Snyder’s argument is that many people are offended by the names of mascots yet they fail to understand the meaning of that mascot. I agree with Snyder’s argument, a point that needs emphasizing since so many people believe that mascots were created to be offensive. In a different source, Broecker questions why Native Americans don’t look up to the names
People are consistently changing the way that they look, act and some of their beliefs just to fit in with society. There’s an invariably never-ending desire to want to feel accepted by others.

The romantic concept of the “Noble Savage” was mainly embraced by those that did have direct contact with the Native Americans. Those who interacted with them continually saw them as inferior and lacking of common rights. Unfortunately due to these many misconceptions and personal outlooks that took place in early America contributed to the English attitudes towards the Native Americans escalating to further negativity and conflict. This can be reflected in the general stereotypes that some believe are attributed to Native Americans such as “Indian Princess” or “Speak Indian”.
