  • Deviant Act And 15 Being
    581 words
    When we speak of deviance, every individual can have a different definition of what deviance is and what it stands for. What I may take offensive, might be element of survival in your community.

  • Date Rape

    There are many sad stories of girls who have been violated by someone that they know. They almost all begin with a wonderful night and eventually get taken advantage of.

    Rape is the shallowest and most disgusting thing that anyone could ever do to someone. Anyone who would have the gall to do that doesn't deserve to live. I have no respect for anyone who has done that. I also believe that the penalty for rape should be stricter. It is pathetic what rapists get now; they get like two to three years. It really angers me when I think about it. One of my best girl friends was a victim or rape. This was really hard for me to grasp, she was like family to me and I cou...

    My static image portrays the idea of appearance vs. reality, what seems to be is not always true. The vertical line in my image represents the gap between appearance and reality. The quote I have chosen is relevant because the characters in the film "Strictly Ballroom" directed by Baz Luhrman are putting on their "happy faces" to cover up the reality and corruption that exists in the world of ballroom dancing.

  • Garp's Third Relationship With Helen
    1,301 words
    People often mistakenly see feminism as a radical idea that is the direct opposite of male chauvinism, labeling "feminists" as "malicious". John Irving's The World According to Garp is a book about feminism. Irving challenges the narrow-minded notion that feminists are man-hating females, but rather people who believe men and women should receive equal rights.
