She struggles with making statements that are not rude and selfish for example when she was describing why Walter did not have a school lunch. She states, “ He’s a Cunningham”(p 26) and leaves it at that. She dresses in old overalls and would rather play in the dirt than do anything close to ladylike as Scout expresses "Aunt Alexandra was fanatical on the subject of my attire. I could not possibly hope to be a lady if I wore breeches; when I said I could do nothing in a dress, she said I wasn't supposed to be doing things that required pants”. This makes her childhood filled with punishment and controversy from the people living Maycomb.
Within the last two decades, sagging pants have become one of the most noticeable and controversial fashion trends in the United States. The opinions of how society feels about this trend can be divided into two groups. People who are in favor of sagging pants simply say that the style is comfortable and is a way to show their freedom of expression. Those who are opposed to this fashion statement complain that it is no more than a display of public indecency. Some of the opposition even wants to make sagging pants into a criminal issue.
They both remained the same till the end of Emily’s days. Another symbol that stood out was the use of the arsenic. It was already kind of assumed that Emily’s suitor, Homer was not the nicest of men. Some might even refer to a bad man as a rat. Many of the town’s people thought that he was crass and not up to the standards that Emily’s family would normally appreciate, but she continued to date him.
To add to the novel’s theme, Mattie was frequently controlled by Pa and Royal’s authoritative commands. Perhaps the most infamous instances in the novel were when Royal had his way with Mattie by kissing her without warning and groping her bosom (119-120). Mattie never received that kind of attention from a boy, which caused her to go along with Royal’s advances. Also, Pa’s ultimatum, which stated that Mattie could not return to the Gokey farm if she left for college, forced Mattie to rethink her educational decision (168). Miss Emily Baxter, Mattie’s teacher was another character in the novel that had a life parallel to Mattie.
That is a problem considering Ji-li is descended from a landlord, something her classmates refuse to forget. Even though the protagonist had never met her grandfather, the landlord, and he had died when Ji-li's father was small, she was still discriminated against. For fear of being arrested or worse, the family was forced into getting rid of their wealthier, higher status items. Those include Ji-li's grandmother’s wedding presents, and a beaded wedding dress.

Yet, when she begs her mother to go to school her mother replies, “Only one skill. And it’s this: tahamul. Endure” (18). She is scolded and put down for dreaming about an education.

One example is the little girl in the commercial saying, “We can’t go to Disney, Daddy got a new job and works too much.” A large amount of parents would say that it is one of their worries that they are not giving their kids enough attention. Also, at the beginning of the commercial starts with a little sung sentence that says, “Daddy’s got a new job, maybe Mom and Dad forgot what childhood means.” The makers of this commercial used this quote to draw out that personal problem, a great example of pathos. Paying attention and spending times with kids is a sore subject in our society so “calling out” a parent on this subject is a good way to get an emotional response out of the ad. Also, since Disney has been around so long and some parents have been there when they were a kid, they make it seem like Disney World is a place that should be shared by the whole family at least once. Disney is portrayed as an experience that the whole family should take part in because it is every kid’s dream to meet the one and only Mickey Mouse.

Shay says, “They all look the same” and also “We’re not freaks, Tally. We’re normal.
