Regarding the controversial issue of same sex marriage. It seems that Pollit is trying to justify same sex marriage by comparing it to a legal substandard marriage (A man can marry a woman no matter how ill acquainted). In the essay of gay “Marriage” societal suicide by Charles Colson, he takes the same approach by disregarding all the issues of traditional marriage. Both of these essays are guilty of distorting the readers perception of what is a good marriage by vastly exaggerating and ignoring many
Novelist, Roxane Gay, in her essay “The careless Language of Sexual Violence”, voices her concerns about rape culture and how it is perpetuated in today’s society. She uses anaphora, imagery, and rhetorical questions in order to demonstrate how society “carelessly” (131) normalizes rape. In her essay, Gay uses rhetorical questions and anaphora to further stress her concerns and talk about how writers are gratuitous when talking about rape. She opens her essay using anaphora comparing “crimes” to “atrocities.”(128) Gay uses anaphora in order to emphasize important words and concerns she has. Another effective technique she uses is rhetorical questions.
Many dislikes Hillary Clinton and says she is a lesbian. This lesbian rumor indicates fear. Critics fear that Hillary Clinton will take away men’s rights. It is false. Even though she shows so much support to women and the LGBT community, this does not give any proof she is a lesbian.
Based on the connection between Francis Sadilek's suicide and Mr. Shimerda's, as well as the similarity between names, that was most likely an Annie Sadilek, though there were other women in Cather's life as well, her college love likely represented by Lena Lingham. The chastity present in Jim's interactions with Antonia and Lena suggests strongly the story was autobiographical and the narrator was made male because an openly lesbian novel would almost definitely not be published, but was that all that was going on? While it would be remiss to retroactively gender her differently as she never made any explicit statement to the effect, it's not unlikely Cather was in fact transsexual, based on her male "fraternal twin" persona William. While the "disguise" could be argued to be a tactic to gain advantage in a very maledominated field and world overall, biographers do agree Willa was hardly a person who concealed or suppressed her identity. Antonia herself displays both feminine and masculine traits, stating she "like(s) to be like a man" (pg.
Abate (169) acknowledged that, compared to other novels of similar theme, The Outsiders was “lack of true profanity, drug use, and sex acts.” Is it characteristically a touch of femininity that women writer produce when writing about violence? There were two female characters present in the story of the outsiders: Cherry Valance and Marcia who reveal certain stereotypes about femininity. First, Cherry embodies the woman as emphatic and anti-violent peace maker. She enjoyed long conversation she had with Ponyboy, a greaser, listened to him and showed empathy toward Ponyboy’s problematic life ( Hinton 30-34). Cherry is also portrayed as a smart girl of the upper class who is soft, educated, and is sick of fights.
Throughout the novel, Martha Wolg is often found talking or thinking about sexuality; one way to interpret this is to assume that Martha lacks in confidence in her sexuality. Throughout this paper, I will prove this by considering that Martha idolizes her daughter’s physical appearance, Martha frequent comments on her own physical appearance, and her relationship with men throughout the novel. One instance in which Martha demonstrates that she lacks confidence in her own sexuality is evident in part two when Martha goes into great detail about Ursula’s, her five-year-old daughter, primary and secondary sex characteristics. On page 41, after Martha returned home after visiting her daughter at the hospital, she reminisces about the last time she gave her daughter a bath. In this memory, she describes Ursula’s breasts as “little breasts that still seemed like weak unclear stars” and her vulva as “a glowing, budding flower, an unopened flower .
For one thing, with the success of Katherine V. Forrest’s Kate Delafield series, lesbian detectives were characterized by an established lesbian identity, amateurs as detectives and emphasizing the significance of female relationships, and consequently, such genre of crime fiction was recognized by the society (Reddy 200-01). For the other thing, from the 1990s (Reddy 201), female writers and women detectives of color appeared on the stage of the feminist crime fiction. It is demonstrated by the author that these black female writers made giant effects on this genre, especially in the aspect of changing the traditions made by white feminist writers, such as including racial and class issues (Reddy 202). Hitherto, colored female writers have presented their characteristics of depicting “black female consciousness”, introducing “the intersections of race and gender”, having “interest in colourism”, and so forth (Reddy
She is “against rape” in all its forms. However, she thinks not everyone agrees with her, as many countries around the world are still very tolerant when it comes to marital rape. She then talks about Lebanon, where there are no civil law against husbands sexually violating their wives. Despite religious leaders 's beliefs that women are men 's “legal appendages” and accessories, and their involvement in civil courts decisions, the author doesn 't blame the lack of gender civil rights on religious authorities. Rather, she talks about a global gender discriminative vision seen around the world, that feminists must fight against in order to make it disappear.
In her first dazzling debut short story collection Interpreter of Maladies, she has presented this cross cultural differences in all her stories. Her characters struggle hard to adjust themselves in new places, foreign countries and at the same time face the identity crisis. Her stories seem to be semi-autobiographical as she herself could not properly adjust in America. We find a striking similarity between the life of Jhumpa Lahiri and the lives of several others characters of her
She wants them to use the same passion and anger they have to college administrators and instead use it to change stuff beyond their own personal issues. Daum does this again in her column,”How grievance culture undercuts the fight against rape culture”, Daum explains how rape culture is both a serious and terrifying case but, at the same time it is just a cry for attention. She explains that “The woman who gets drunk at a party and has sex she neither exactly consented to nor exactly resisted is just as much a victim as the clearly brutalized woman.” This is giving to many advantages to women. but like the column,” Time for young feminists to look beyond the mattress and campus rape” Daum says, “ it 's wrong to it 's wrong to "privilege" one kind of trauma over another”. Someone else is having it far worse than you but they are doing something productive with it and in the second column, someone is having a more worst rape then you are.
In Queering Reproduction by Laura Mamo, does a superb job at describing and detailing the difficulties of trying to become a mother in a world where heterosexuality is the norm, while being a homosexual (lesbian). Mamo does a great job at challenging the opposing argument, She mentions why lesbians desire to procreate a family as well as, the difficulties on how wanting a family can literally make or break a person. The way mamo shows this in her ethnography Queering Reproduction she gives individual stories/cases of lesbian couples and their struggle on wanting a family. Each one of the cases goes into detail on how difficult it was to get a baby. Some cases contained regular insemination (donated sperm or anonymous sperm), assisted insemination

The book, Bad Feminist, written by Roxane Gay, is a collection of essays that argues about many topics of feminism and typical problems in today’s society. “What We Hunger For," is one of her personal essays. Gay reveals to her reader the difficult journey she had to endure as a teen, while also taking her reader through the cultural experiences that many girls endure but never talk about. She later explores The Hunger Games trilogy and its heroine Katniss Everdeen to emphasize the cathartic and sobering stories in young adult literature. Gay claims that through the use of young adult literature and movies that speak of true experiences and accomplishments, the dark past young adult endure can be unlock and resolved.
