In contrast, George and Hazel in the short story cannot even identify the obstacle that they are facing with their lives. This is evident when Hazel suggests George take his bad down, he refuses by saying that when “[people] get away with it, and pretty soon [they’d be right back to the dark ages again,” and Hazel agreed. Sadly, they are so passionate about “equality”, that they are blind about that fact that they are suffering. In conclusion, both “”Warren Pryor” and “Harrison Bergeron” illustrate the danger of overly controlling humanity. Both texts discuss the barrier of stifling humanity, however, in the poem the narrator decides to suffer under his parents’ expectation, where in the short story the speakers are blind about the barrier that they are
Secondly, Judge Danforth’s irrationality and ignorance brings about poor decisions on his part. One of the instances where Danforth reveals his following attitude is when he denies to even look at a deposition presented by John Proctor as described by his words “ No, no, I accept no depositions” (Miller 88). John Proctor hands him a deposition signed by Mary warren, stating that the accusations made by Abigail and the girls are false. In this regard Judge Danforth replies to John Proctor by repetitively says “No” thereby emphasizing his adamant view on this subject. He has irrationally made up his mind that the John Proctor is trying to overthrow the court and this mind set leads him to take a poor decision of ignoring a potentially eye-opening
Because of his loneliness, he asked Zeena to marry him without thinking it through. He had no feelings for her and desperately hoped it would make him feel better. While being married to Zeena, his unhappiness peaked and caused him to fall in love with another girl who was the Fromes’ maid, Mattie Silver. Romance was in the air and most definitely not between Zeena and Ethan. Ethan flirted with Mattie and would try his hardest to impress her, for example, he began shaving his face everyday which he never used to do for Zeena.
(…) She wants me dead John, you know it!” (Miller 57). Even when Elizabeth pleads to John, warning him, he still shrugs it off as nothing, because he believes his extramarital affair wasn’t a big deal, this also ties into his arrogance in believing that no harm can come to his family. Any sane person would realize the potential outcome and try to reason with him about the accusations. John’s stubbornness is further shown in his last scene in Act IV, when he refuses to save himself via his public written confession. “Because it is my name!
As the story progresses, Hero is accused of sleeping with another man. When Claudio learns that his wife-to-be is unloyal, his first instinct is to publicly reject her at their wedding. He continues through with this plan, saying “Not to be married, not to knit my soul to an approved wanton” (125). Given his male identity, he has the power to react in this way. It was not looked down upon for him to rescind his love so quickly from a woman who he originally believed to be “the sweetest lady that ever [Claudio] looked on” (17).
They both think they have the upper hand, but in reality they are equally deceitful towards each other. In “Roman Fever” Delphin is a passive character because he is never aware of the decisions the women make about his life. One incident where Delphin is shown as a passive character is when Mrs. Slade writes a letter and signs it in his name to Mrs. Ansley. Then Mrs. Slade tells her, “I suppose
Many people might find having sex in general sinful. For instance, the reverend makes a comment to “just say no” referring to sex. Also, men automatically fault Ava in getting HIV because she is a woman and they think she should have strapped up. This effects Ava because someone is always judging her whether it religious beliefs or sex roles. Family Fortunately, Ava had one family member who was there for her through out the novel, her sister Joyce.
Blanche avoids all direct, bright light, especially in front of men. Mitch, one of her potential suitors, proves this statement when he points out to Blanche: “I don’t think I ever seen you in the light. That’s a fact!” (Williams…) She refuses to reveal her age, and it is evident that she stays away from light to avoid others seeing her losing her beauty and her age. Blanche’s inner conflict gave the play an unforgettable conclusion. She “[doesn’t] tell the truth, [but instead]

In contrast, Summer does not believe in love, and her stance is clear through her speeches and subtle actions shown near the end of the movie. Ultimately, when the relationship crumbles and comes to dissolution stage, Tom shows a major disappointment with life and obsessed with thoughts about Summer. Tom only dismisses Summer as a potential mate when Rachel tells him to think about all the incompatible actions she has done rather than what he imagine to be
Thus, as the straight people are considered the majority in society, the director is actually showing to the audience that gay people are hiding from the straight world, and the reason why gay people gather together is because they might not find the sense of belonging in all those “straight” places as they couldn’t really show who they are. Besides, the audience could find out that none of the character actually got someone whom they can be fully falling in love with. Stuart never has a “relationship”, and he is simply an egregious flirt, but definitely not an expert of relationship. Vince is secretly crushing on Stuart, but Stuart seems to have no interest of him. Nathan crazily falls in love with Stuart, but Stuart treats him like a sex toy indeed.

The only questionable content of this book would be that Daniel (her husband) is believed to make Miyax have sex with him since his friends were making fun of him for not doing anything with her sexually. Although this definitely should not be in a children’s book, the author

By the end, he becomes disinterested by the public opinion and concerned about his personal integrity.
Until Clarisse inadvertently forces him to accept the truth, Montag denies his unhappiness to himself as well as to everyone else. He fervently denies the suggestion that he is not in love with anyone, claiming without hesitation that he is “very much in love” with Mildred (Bradbury 22). In light of the emotionally vacant and meaningless interactions between Montag and Mildred, the assertion that such a relationship is ‘love’ seems absurd. Montag never stops to wonder whether the things he says are true or not; there is no reflection of himself in his words. Montag’s defensive, almost automatic, responses are characteristic of a man who voices only what he thinks he is supposed to feel, not what he truly feels.
“Well, I guess it’s better that she’s sucking on some preacher’s cock rather than a smoking meth,” Tabitha said dismissively when William detailed the quality of life for Deborah Gellibrand. “I agree.” “I can’t believe that they’re even parties in this case. They don’t exactly sound like the activist types.” “They’re not, at least not anymore,” William said. “They refused to serve as aggrieved plaintiffs months ago. Sheckly and his legal team had to scramble when the Gellibrands refused to participate.
