Emily was just a teen in Ohio who was happy, enjoyable to be around, and was beautiful. However, her bullies didn’t agree with this and decided to tease her and bully her and make her life miserable. Emily couldn’t handle it so she took her life. Bullies should be punished because many kids are killing themselves over bullying, and bullies won 't stop until someone forces them, but some people think they should be taught and helped to understand their actions. Bullies should be punished for their actions because too many kids are killing themselves or losing self confidence and not coming to school.
The reason for marriage is basically to avoid the shame that has come with the incident and because the victim is no longer a virgin, this makes her not worthy anymore in the eyes of the society of being eligible for marriage. Just because the young girl was violated, this law allows her to be somewhat ‘saved’ from our horrid society by living with her rapist for the rest of her life and to be continuously raped. It also turns to be a loophole for the rapist to escape from any sort of judicial verdict. One tormenting incident I came across while researching was the murder of Junko Furuta that took place in Japan. On November 25th, 1988 Junko was walking home after school and she got kidnapped by 4 young men.
The steward assumed she is weak because she is a girl. Another prove that I have stated before is when the archbishop called her not a respectable woman. He stated that as if a girl dress like a soldier is something bad and new. They did not expect these kinds of attire and behavior from women. Because of the odd things Joan does, she was punished by being killed and burned to death.
Victim Blaming in Rape culture Remember the younger days when a younger sibling would get someone into trouble for something that they never did, and rather it was something that the younger sibling did? If that was bothersome to someone when they were younger imagine if that happened now. Surprisingly, this happens when someones older too, but not about simple things such as taking a treat when someone shouldn’t have. Many people blame for crimes that happened to them, and not the genuine criminal. Numerous women are assaulted in America, as well as all around the globe, and the worst part of this crime is that the women are the ones being rebuked for what happened to them.
"4.1.68-69 Juliet was putting pressure on Friar to of give her a solution for the horrible situation she was in. Friar probably felt that he had to think quickly to help Juliet, so the solution he gave her was very radical and didn't even promise to work perfectly, and surely enough it didn’t. The Friar made a very ignorant decision when he decided to give a 13 year old girl a potion that was powerful enough to put her in such a deep sleep it will fooled everyone around her into thinking she was dead. Even Juliet had multiple fears before she drank the potion. She feared that she would of woken up too soon before Romeo could of gotten to her, and that she would of woken up and suffocated.
She plans on killing her children because she believes that she is rescuing them from a hand more hostile to murder them. Although this may convince some readers that she does have a heart with a sense of protecting her children, there is also a darker reason for this sinful act. In one particular scene, the Corinthian women begged her not to do this, but Medea replied with, “this will cause my husband to feel the most pain.” Reading this piece, readers will surely realize that having Jason suffer in anguish was her way of regaining peace, viewing her as the antagonist of this play. It 's strange though how she feels motherly love towards the children like any other parent today, even though the nurse from the beginning of the story said she hated her children. So it seems that good and evil are not just black and white, it 's just the decisions people make between morals and
In detail, maybe the reason for this fear is the social status or the position of the Grierson’s in the community. Also, there were a lot of red flags about her intention to kill Howard Barron but the whole town was clueless despite all these signs. In the end, Emily Grierson has been psychotic since the beginning of the story, how and when she lost her mind is unknown. The one question perhaps that all the readers ask about this story is, what is her motive to kill Howard Barron? I was shock to find out about Jack Scherting’s idea about Emily’s motive behind Howard Barron’s murder.
In the case of Marsha, she was convicted to life imprisonment after her son was stillborn due to a miscarriage. Her poverty and past of drug abuse framed her as a bad mother and labeled her as a murderer despite her efforts to revive the child. Women are in prison for minor offences and have been sentenced for extended amounts of time. Current sentencing laws are based on male characteristics and male crime and thus fail to take into account the reality of women 's lives, characteristics, responsibilities, and roles in crime. Gender pathways to law breaking are dominated by females who had suffered from physical and/or sexual abuse, labeled as troublesome (juveniles), neglected, powerless to have agency.
When teenagers are in social platforms, no one will ever know if they are mentally bullied because the wound are not shown on the surface of the skin. Cyber-bullying have caused many teenage victims to commit suicide, or even at least, having the thought of it. In the case of Megan Meier who was a 13 years old, committed suicide after being cyber-bullying through social media, MySpace by a female adult who was her neighbour posing to be a teenage boy named “Josh” who befriended her. They exchanged a few messages and shortly after, they became friends. “He” called her names like “slut and liar” and telling Megan that the world would be a better place without her.
The first example of the emotional effect rape has on a person is Maya’s relationship with herself. Throughout the novel Maya struggled with finding her identity and feeling displaced and insecure. While some of this was caused by a lack of parental love or by a culture that praised white beauty, a majority of it is caused by her rape. After Maya was raped, she was suddenly both a woman and a child, yet she felt like neither. She didn’t know where she belonged because she had experienced a very mature moment at such a young age.
