The film in short describes the high school life of a chaste girl, Olive, who conforms to peer pressure and starts lying about her sexual behavior in order to maintain a certain reputation as well as to help out her troubled friends. This eventually leads her to challenge her self concepts to extreme levels, causing her to either liberate herself from the façade she created or sink into the role. Easy A describes many genuine psychological phenomena and I am going to focus on three of them; Cognitive dissonance theory, how societal and cultural norms dictate our attitudes and thoughts, and different ways of persuasion. The cognitive dissonance theory is the feeling of unease that is felt when we act in opposition to our attitudes, which causes a shift of attitude in order to be consistent with our behavior. Easy A depicts strongly the theory of cognitive dissonance on numerous occasions.
It will be very fascinating if everything always goes the way youngsters picture things; yet, they are absolutely forced to see the hardships of life at least one time in their life. In the Neil Gaiman story “How to Talk to Girls at Parties”, Vic and Enn are in a college party going through a series of experiences which lead them to regret their decision because of their young impulsive behavior. As well as John Updike story “A&P”, in which Sammy quits his job when his boss scolds three girls because they entered the store in bathing suits. He wants to demonstrate to the girls that he is on their side. Both experiences that “Vic” and “Sammy” were presented show that many times due to inexperience they follow what they believe is right and

Zenia, the femme fatale, psychologically controls everyone including her ex best friends and their spouse/boyfriend. She is simultaneously dominating her friends by being sexually engaged with their men, a treacherous form of manipulation. Critics have praised this work of modern literature who appeals to both acitivts and readers by informing them that “the feminism to be read in Atwood 's novels is not the feminism to be discovered in feminist textbooks." (Tolan 1). Even though Zenia is constantly being referred to as a sex symbol, she does not let herself be degraded, abused or exploited by anyone.
The raped woman’s gender performance was wrong, it sent the wrong signals. Mackinnon also uses the language of reference objects, writing that porn purports to tell “the truth about sex” (3, 1985). That “truth” is the sexiness of violence and hierarchy. Pornography is a visual reference that tells the viewer what woman is, as if a pictorial dictionary. The image of the woman presented in porn represents “true” woman and is internalized as woman by the man (4, 1985).

For example, when Blanche sees the paper boy, she takes out a scarf to try and seduce him, quickly kisses him without waiting for consent, and rushes him on his way without a word from him, just to play with his emotions (pg. 88). Even when something bad happens to Blanche, she copes by making a lie to cover up her emotions. After Blanche was raped and Stella did not believe what had happened, she falsely told her sister “…the rest of [her] time [she] is going to spend on the sea…”(pg.

For instance, there is the incident in the loft when ironically Pointer takes her glasses off and as they are kissing Hulga believes that she, “... had seduced him without even making up her mind to try.”(O’Connor 14). She believes this even though it is obvious to the reader that the opposite is true. Due to this Edmonson states, “The scene in the loft between Hulga and Pointer is significant for many reasons, one of which is that it highlights to the reader Hulga’s vulnerabilities”(3). When Pointer is putting her leg back on, she (Filled with hope and lust) imagines him doing it every morning for her. For the first time has allowed herself to be vulnerable.
Peers had several ways that they pressure or influence Melinda Sordino’s life; they were talking to her all time and give her bad advice (Halse). They pressured her to go party, drink, dance and date someone (Halse). The worst things came from this peer pressure. I have an experience and I know how it could be through my friend’s story.

According to Freakonomics, “Women’s rights advocates, for instance, have hyped the incidence of sexual assault, claiming that one in three American women will in her lifetime be a victim of rape or attempted rape.” Freakonomics discloses that the figure is actually an estimated one in eight, but “advocates know that it would take a callous person to publicly dispute their claims.” In other words, the activists exploit people’s moral and social incentives to gain importance and attention while simultaneously eliminating opposition. Although the advocates are gaining awareness for a positive movement, they still use conventional wisdom and the media to do so. So what makes conventional wisdom troublesome to defuse? Well, it is the experts and journalists who architect
