Both the poem “Warren Pryor” by Alden Nowlan and the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr express a depressing tone. “Warren Pryor” is about a son who chooses a career that he dislikes in order to please his parents. “Harrison Bergeron” is about a dystopian society where excellence in any way is considered a disadvantage and inequality for others. In both texts, the protagonists all face the barrier of having their nature being stifled; however, the speaker in the poem chooses not to fight back for himself, while the majority in the short story is not even able to realize the barrier that they face.

They are missing the communication for them to succeed. “Forgive me for what? Well for starters, there’s the way I always lied to you about your urges” (Ishiguro 231). Kath thinks Ruth will brush over this but it is hurting them in the long run with their
Women are scrutinized by men as if they need approval to be considered beautiful. Girls at a young age are taught to be seen as objects due to men’s feeling toward women. Social media is highly effective because boys rate girls’ pictures as if it means absolutely nothing, and that brings down girls, which make them want look “sexy.” Movies, tv shows, and magazines always have a gorgeous, slim, big breasted, and huge butt woman, who is supposed to represent what women are assumed to resemble. In films, “chick-flicks”, women are primarily supposed to find love, a man, or just be into fashion however, no one questions why a woman must find love in a movie.
In act four Hamlet ‘pretended’ that he didnt love Ophelia because her dad and claudius were watching him. If Hamlet really loved Ophelia then he would not of acted like a douche bag and made Ophelia feel like she meant nothing to him. If he did have to say those things he said to her so he can stay with her he didn 't even bother to send her a letter and tell her why he said the things he said, instead he never contacted her again he just let it be. Hamlet could have been a man and confessed his love for her in front of them and just fight for her. Another way Hamlet shows he does not love Ophelia is is the fact he feels no harm in his killing of Ophelia dad.
He very strongly debates with her over the question of why he is not able to talk about his child as the husband, on the other hand, has accepted the death.

All of the makeup, hair products, perfumes, etc., are completely hurting women’s overall body image and self-esteem. Trying to live up to such nearly impossible standards is so taxing on women. Tyler is a six-foot tall, beauty, who has posed for Maxim magazine in just her undergarments, yet she found it important to tell young women not to look up to super models and to embrace their curves. I found this so interesting since she has actually been considered to have supermodel stature and looks, yet often jokes about her ‘freakishly tall stature’ or being an ‘amazon’ or ‘giant’. Her tone is definitely one of a sarcastic feminist.
He says she has “gap-teeth, set widely, truth to say...large hips, her heels spurred sharply,”(line 478-483), attributes that men yearned for in a woman. Women dreamed of appearing curvy and having gap teeth so that men would marry them. Therefore, since the Wife posses these attributes it makes her a stereotype for women of this time not a feminist
It was harder to find a cartoon for the old man than the old woman. Unfortunately, there were so many cartoons that came up for elderly women that it was hard to pick just one. For the men, there were more just depicting slightly hunched-over seniors that lacked any sort of joke or insulting punch line.
