As a result of such abuse Celie had two children whom she says were taken away. The long term effect of the constant assaults was that Celie could no longer have children because she “doesn’t bleed anymore”, meaning she was internally damaged. Throughout the rest of the novel Celie has sexual intercourse with Mr.____ but only because she feels it’s her obligation as a wife. I felt deep sympathy for Celie as a read the tragic experiences she had to face throughout her life and it makes me think about all the women who face similar

In the hospital, Blanche was confronted by female nurse to which she reacted violently, however she responded much calmer with the male doctor which she replied “Whoever you are, I have always depended on the kindness of strangers” (Scene 11). The scene illustrates her fear of rejection and contrast towards southern mannerisms. Blanche was also rejected by Mitch for the reasons stated above, leading a misguided life. Blanche had several affairs back home with soldiers which causes her to be exiled.
She doesn’t realize what she's doing because she doesn’t know what to do with herself and her husband because the baby is what making them be together. I find it disrespectful and absolutely wrong when a guy causes abuse to a woman. There’s no reason for men to be putting their anger on women like that, it’s not the correct way to solve any issues. Cleofilas is a victim of domestic violence because of her husband. This all started after marriage that’s why I think Juan was using her.
Being guilty in driving Macbeth to his first murder, which leads to even more assassinations of other innocent people, she becomes psychologically damaged. While Lady Macbeth sleepwalks, she accidentally reveals her feelings about her family’s actions. Macbeth, being fearful of her sleepwalking, called on a doctor, who had said to the gentlewoman, “Unnatural deeds/ Do breed unnatural troubles. Infected minds/ To their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets” (V.i.75-77). The doctor knows that Lady Macbeth’s sleepwalking is caused by a disturbance in her mind, which is her feeling the guilt about all the murders and the deaths of the innocent people.
It can take the form of physical battery, emotional bullying, psychological coercion, sexual abuse, or neglect.” Major causes of abuse in the sexual act consists of the victims to not want to participate in sexual intercourcse with a stranger, not wanting to dress a certain way and basically to not do what they are told and when the martyr’s refuse to do so they get abused by getting battered by their pimps, leaders or “lords.” Abuse is any type of physical touch againsts a persons will and it’s not easy to get out of in the fact that if you get battered in a very powerful way you could be a victims of murder during the act of getting abused.

With the abuse that a person is affected in they could eventually act different towards someone or everyone and later on become an abuser while living with the experience and continue to harm other people and make them suffer what you suffered for revenge and hatred towards what the person has done to
Scottie was put through a lot; manipulation, and witnessed two deaths, one being a loved one. The scene where he was in the hospital showed that he was mentally unstable because of guilt and trauma, but after that is when it began to twist and turn. Every woman he saw that was blonde reminded him of Madeleine, and once he found Judy he was set on creating Madeleine’s perfection again. He was demanding, obsessive, and simple crazy. You begin to feel for Judy and forget that she was an accessory to murder and is the bad
Throughout the novel, it is evident to me that on account of David’s struggles with the secret homosexual aspect of his bisexuality, he is concerned about whether or not people perceive him as masculine enough. David’s fixation with the way he appears to others causes him to be envious of masculine men and “uneasy” around “feminine” men. Sanchez suggests that “David limits the homosexual identity to one that is defined through heteronormativity that forces biological males to be masculine” (Sanchez 5). David is repulsed by homosexuality, but even more repulsed by the feminine male “transvestites” in the bar, whom he does not see as man nor woman enough for anybody to “want one of them” (Baldwin 27). Sanchez’ argument is further supported by a scene in the novel in which David sees a sailor and stares “at him, though I did not know it, and wishing I were he... he wore his masculinity as unequivocally as he wore his skin” (Baldwin 92).
The inability to understand strikes fear in people and twists the minds of others to believe different things. Austin Smith, author of the Doctor Who series, accents on this idea quite well by saying, “People fear what they don’t understand and hate what they can’t conquer.” This explains the idea of being afraid of what people don’t understand very well. When something isn’t fully understood, we open up our minds to different aspects of life that wouldn’t necessarily be true. People come up with outrageous ideas that send others into a panicking flare. This fear prevents us from moving forward in life.
