Many men fell for this and in my opinion she became very powerful in a sense. I believe Cathy was a very selfish character. While reading East of Eden I thought that she might have had mental problems. I was furious that she tried to kill her baby and later on lied about why say tried to do such a thing.

Though women have been killing for many years, their motivations differ greatly from those of their male counterparts.

She failed to meet the usual characteristics one would expect from a female serial killer.
The last example of the labeling theory has to do with a girl I met last year that I really connected with. After putting in the groundwork for a successful relationship, I told her I was a recovering heroin addict. This ruined all that we had built. Her uncle was an addict and chose drugs over her family and caused her a lot of pain. She projected that on me and did not want to even get involved as a result of that.
Moses Sithole was born in 1964 to Simon & Sophie Sithole, one of five children in Vosloorus, a poor neighbourhood of Boksburg in apartheid-era South Africa. When he was five, his father died, and his mother abandoned the family. Sithole and his siblings spent the next three years in an orphanage, where he later said they were mistreated.

She had asked in terror about what had occurred." In fact, the word "No" grew up with the young girl from the beginning when the man raped her.

Why men rape Men rape not for sex but for control. Rape is an assault by a person using sexual intercourse or sexual invasion of another person without their consent. Rape is considered a serious sex crime, as well as a civil assault. Men who become rapist grow up in an environment where they are battered, molested, or see their mothers or siblings being abused. Therefore their freedoms are taken away in their childhood and teen years because they are unable to help or get out of the situation.
