Boys Don’t Cry (1999) shows Brandon Teena, a teenager who presents himself as a teenage boy, is attracted to girls, has fights with the boys and manages to pass, however his happiness is brutally faced with society’s expectations, which results in the film’s unhappy ending. Nevertheless, it is a film that focuses on the positive representation of a trans character in his teenage years and is one of the first films that deal with FtM characters in such humane and sympathetic manner. It remains, however, a violent film that does not carry the message of hope. In Romeos (2011) we are presented with the twenty-year-old trans man not willing to tell his environment he is trans. An important document shows a young man in transphobic Germany where homosexuality and bisexuality seems to be accepted by everyone, yet transsexuality is a big taboo.
On page 160, Antonio, coming home from school on a Winter's day sees Tenorio and Narciso bursting out through the doors of the Longhorn Saloon in a fight. Tenorio was a man who wanted revenge against Ultima because she had supposedly cast a curse on his daughters while Narciso was a friend of Ultima and Antonio’s family. The fight that Narciso and tenorio had is actually about Ultima. In the same chapter, Antonio witnesses another death apart from that of Lupito. After the fight, Narciso attempts to warn the Marez y Luna family about Tenorio’s aggression, but it doesn’t go as planned.
For example in the play, Tybalt, talks about the family feud while at dinner and he can tell Romeo is a Montague. Today people could realize that someone they don’t like showed up at the party and want them to leave. Also Tybalt says to Romeo, “Boy. Your words can’t excuse the harm you’ve done to me. So now turn and draw your sword.” People today can’t forgive people for what they’ve done in the past.
Youth culture can pertain to interests in styles, music, clothes and sports. It also pertains to behaviours, beliefs, and vocabulary; this refers to the ways that teenagers conduct their lives. The concept behind youth culture is that adolescents are a subculture with norms, morals, behaviours and values that differ from the main culture of older generations within society. For instance, young men and women, teenagers in this case, are mostly represented as unpredictable and not easy to understand. In the film, Mean Girls directed by Mark Waters (2004), adolescents are represented as bullies, who use manipulation to achieve what they want and are two-faced with the people around them; they are constantly stereotyped as a high social group like the plastics and a low social group like the mathletes; also they are presented as young people that fall under peer pressure, and are overly concerned about their appearance and about being socially accepted.

The removal of positively valued stimuli for him was losing Terrence to prison and his two friends to death (Kotlowitz, 1991). For Lafeyette, the presentation of negative stimuli would be having an overcrowded household, having to duck and cover when random shootings between gangs happen on a daily basis, and watching his father come in and out of the apartment drunk (Kotlowitz, 1991). Lastly, Lafeyette’s environment, Henry Horner, and financial strain would be the prevention keeping him from obtaining his dream. Not only is strain objective and subjective but it can also arise from anticipation. Despite everyone experiences multiple strains, the impact of the strain differs by its magnitude,
Although the story starts out without indirectly discussing the murder of the king, we as readers can interpret that this act of violence has already taken place. The biggest question around is: “Who killed the King?” When the ghost visits Hamlet, readers and Hamlet become informed that King Claudius is the one who killed the king. (Act I, Scene 5, lines 39-40). This brings major tension into the mood and tone of the characters because now Hamlet has a feel for all the betrayal that is taking place around him. It also leads to a downfall of almost every character in the play.
This demonstrates that family ties, even if not blood related, have serious impacts on Hamlet’s life which causes misery to overwhelm his life; this misery prohibits his success. During Ophelia’s funeral, the drama between Hamlet and Laertes magnifies which causes more hate between their families. Laertes provokes Hamlet into fighting him by Ophelia’s grave, with their families there to witness, by saying “[t]he devil take thy soul” (V, i, 243). Following this mishap, Laertes is informed by Claudius of a strategy to end Hamlet’s life in the near future. This immoral conflict being conducted in a place that already is commemorating death displays that they are inclined to cause more people to die.
Despite the fact that some high school audiences may be able to handle the mature motifs seen throughout the play, schools should ban A Streetcar Named Desire from curriculums due to the insubstantial depictions of these serious social issues. One reoccurring motif throughout A Streetcar Named Desire is domestic violence. The marriage between Stanley Kowalski and Stella Dubois continuously display this motif for the duration of the play. From his first introduction, Stanley gives off an intimidating and devious presence. Through the third scene of the play, as his character continues to develop, Stanley creates quite a few issues through his drunkenness, including the main issue of hitting his wife, Stella.
Both texts explore what behaviours are considered acceptable and unacceptable in Australian society. Violence is present but frowned upon and seen as unacceptable in both texts. For example, in The Castle when the kerrigan family is getting threatened, Steve pulls a gun out and is instantly told off and the idea is shut down. Similarly in Summer Heights High when Jonah gets worked up at a school dance and becomes violent teachers take him away from the situation and scold him trying to prove the point that violence is not the
Humphrey Dunfee is an urban legend intended to scare kids (think: Candyman or the witch 's uvula). It 's first mentioned in Chapter 7, as if kids who are going to be unwound need more to be scared of. The legend says that Humphrey Dunfee 's parents regret unwinding their son, so they 're hunting down pieces of him and rebuilding him, Frankenstein 's monster-style. At the end of the legend, the futility of the mission is addressed. "All the king 's horses and all the king 's men…couldn 't put Humphrey together again" (2.19.173).
In traditional Mexican heritage backgrounds, “a boy of sixteen was ready to assume responsibilities of family and a life in the community.” (Savage, pg. 397) Whereas a boy of sixteen in an American heritage background, his adolescence was sought out to be prolonged. Not knowing which culture to side with, these zoot-suiters rebelled to both cultures, and one act of rebellion was their outrageous clothing which was a flag of dishonor. Zoot-suiter’s many acts of rebellion and their un-American views made it impossible for them to be socially constructed in the same way white teenagers. For the white society to hate the zoot-suiters even more, the “zoot-suit” came from the mid-thirties Negro fashions, where during that time Malcolm X began sporting the look.
Peers described Jay as “He was ‘mean, intimidating, shady’” (Episode Eight). Jay probably felt intimidated by Adnan, Adnan’s this good, well liked guy, who’s close to his girlfriend, the person he’d do anything for, the prom queen and Adnan the prom king.

Stephanie then brings this up to Jay, saying how Adnan had been saying these things to her, Jay gets angry and wants revenge. He kills Hae, shows Adnan the body and tells him not to get in the way of him and Stephanie, then says that if Adnan doesn’t help him, he’ll blame it all on Adnan.
