Alcée asks Calixta about marrying Bobinôt because he knows that although he and Caixta have a natural love for each other, they cannot be together because of their societal standards. Also, the author writes, “Calixta’s senses were reeling; and they well-nigh left her when she felt Alcée’s lips brush her ear like the touch of a rose” (431). This is yet another example of Calixta’s and Alcée’s forbidden love because they express such strong feelings for each other, but they cannot actually be together. After Bobinôt asks Calixta to kiss him, she says, “I don’t want to kiss you, Bobinôt, not today. Some other time.
Butler University also shows other reasons for why books are often times banned. Also, many are outraged that books like To Kill a Mockingbird is on the banned books list because they are time-honored books. Many people believe books should be banned because their content is deemed inappropriate for younger audiences or because their content is on sensitive subjects. However, others believe it is our First Amendment right to be able to read these books and that books contain important lessons in them. Christine Hauser, writer for The New York Times, agrees that books the controversial content manner should be banned.
This is because he uses her to both display the roles of woman and how Hermia simultaneously opposes and displays the expectations at the time. Hermia neglects the notion that women should obey the men in their lives because she refuses to follow the wishes of her father, Egeus. As mentioned previously Egeus wishes for Hermia to marry Demetrius, but seeing as Hermia does not love him, she refuses to marry him. Ironically, Shakespeare also uses Hermia’s character to display the ways in
As they were walking past Mrs. Dubose’s house, she accused them of making trouble and disapproved of Scout’s wardrobe by bellowing and saying“...‘And you—’ she pointed an arthritic finger at [her]—’what are you doing in those overalls? You should be in a dress and camisole, young lady!’ ” (Lee, 135). As far as the reader is aware of, Scout’s usual wardrobe consists of overalls and she is not a big fan of dresses, another indicator that she despises acting ladylike. Like Mrs. Dubose, Aunt Alexandra disapproves of Scout’s attire and is constantly telling her to change the way she is so she can act more like a girl and less than a boy. This is another situation from the book where someone is treated unequally from the others simply because of her gender and because of the way she decided to act.
When it comes to her love life though, Shazzer cannot completely follow her radical feminist belief and act as though having to wait for a call from a potential love interest had no effect on her. She clearly despises men’s superior role to women in society and tries to tackle this problem by stating her opinion and acting on her beliefs (being a solid believer in sisterhood and putting it over her relationships with men). Shazzer’s character in the novel does not completely fulfill the role of a feminist cliché but she definitely has some characteristics that match up with stereotypical definitions of radical feminists. These character features might prove to be problematic for the novel’s recipients as it is not an obvious ironic presentation of the media’s image of feminist activists and could be understood as criticism on feminism: Readers who believe these feminist images could feel vindicated in their
Precious Knowledge presents the controversial issue of the integration of ethnic studies courses in schooling.Ethnic studies is the study of cultural, racial, ethnic, and gender differences in America. In this essay, I will argue Ethnic studies courses should belong in P-12 schooling, because the classes endorse ideals of America. In addition, people rely on the courses to learn critical thinking of the empowerment of identity. Although advocates for the abolishment of ethnic studies courses argue that the courses create a sense of contempt towards America through racism and are not remarkably significant, they do not fully comprehend the success from ethnic studies and that by taking away the classes, they only promote their fear of students disliking America. Ultimately, ethnic studies promote American ideals, create identity, and only create contempt when being constrained from these courses.
Shay is similar to Tally in some various ways, as both like to be alone, are in a similar age group and don’t like to follow principles.

Also, she doesn’t like the changing system of the society. She often makes comments such as, “That’s not me.
There has always been a division between girls and boys when it came to sports. Some sports don’t offer a girls team such as football because it’s “rough” or violent. Girls shouldn't be excluded from boys sports because of their gender. There are sometimes some considerations if there isn’t a girls team for that sport but sports such as boy’s lacrosse should allow girls to play. Girls looks and feminism shouldn’t be the reason why girls aren’t allowed on a boy’s sports team.
School dress codes are a very controversial topic in this time of day. Should schools have dress codes? Should schools have uniforms? Or should schools just be carefree and not care about how their students dress? Dress codes have been all over the news, social media, etc.
Girls feel as though they are looked at sexually by everyone (students and administrators) when they are called out for their clothing being ¨distracting¨ just because they are wearing clothes that express their personality or are comfortable but have a noodle strap. “Distracting” is a very vague term because one person might think something is completely distracting (even in a good, complementary way) but somebody else might not even think anything of a certain clothing item. Who is to determine whether or not something is distracting. When girls are constantly called out it lowers their self esteem. It also is hard to see a boy with a potentially distracting piece of clothing and not get called out on it as a girl would.
