Every girl wants to be Regina George (the queen bee) so they copy what she wears, eats, does, says, etc. Cady wants to ruin the 'plastics' because she and Janis (out-casted by Regina) feel that the school would be better off without the hierarchy and social control that Regina creates. This revolt against the governing body is seen a lot in many cultures and is more frequent than people think. In a natural society there are always people that oppose the government. This theme carries through to
I saw girls ridiculed and disrespected by our peers. Most of the boys in my grade would try to use her, hoping that they could get her into their bed, while the girls would despise her out of disgust, or in some cases, jealousy. Before we even knew her name, she was already referred to as “the slut.” But when the rumors were about a male student they were usually positive. Without even trying he already wins the respect of the guys and impresses the girls with his experience. He too gets a name and that is “the player.” It's a huge double standard.
They are completely separated from other people even with their parents, with the exception that both characters have a major female role in their lives, Donnie’s being Gretchen and Holden’s being his little sister, Phoebe. Holden likes Phoebe a lot, even though phoebe does things that usually gets on Holden’s nerve, he doesn’t hate or mind it, like when phoebe repeats “daddy’ll kill you” (167) 4 or 5 times, Holden never once got angry and reply the same answer over and over even though he said he hated people repeating themselves “that’s something that drives me crazy, when someone says something twice that way, after you admit it the first time. Then he says it three times.” Donnie always likes to disagree with other people’s philosophy and thinking, like his gym teacher’s, whenever Gretchen says “what if you could go back in time, and take all those hours of pain and darkness and
English 340 11/25/12 Journal Entry #3 In the book there were two sisters who they were twins but they were so jealous against each other and because they were look alike so they could use their name for tricking their friends. Liz and Jessica are had rapport with each other they were always telling everything that was going on between them. But also they had flippant feeling for each other too because they wanted to still each other’s friends but in the end of the story they knew that it’s not worth it to fight with each other just because of a guy who they just met a week ago. The examples that I chose from the book is, “It’s okay to steal your sister’s boyfriend as long as you really love him Just because two people look the same doesn’t
It is clear that they are the embodiment of everything Lewis sees as a flaw in “young folks.” Jane is consumed by twisted feminist views that lead her to want to be the best wife possible, but still allow her to regret being married and begrudge Mark for everything he takes for granted. Mark is a pompous Fellow at the local college, and nothing concerns him more than being in the “inner circle” and by extension, being well-respected and liked. In fact, it is this flaw of Mark that leads him to fall in with the evil N.I.C.E. for the first half of the book. Much like how Edmund’s hubris leads him into the arms of the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Mark is slowly encompassed in the twisted political levels of N.I.C.E..
They are both very intelligent; Molly is the top student at West River Academy and Clementine was a top student at her school. In contrast, Molly didn’t like Clementine near the end of the book because she found her very selfish, but her stepmother Paulette tried to be more understanding. I also found Clementine selfish and not a very likeable character, but I understand Paulette’s point of view. I really like how the author interwove a rhyme into the story. I’m sure most of you know “Oh My Darling Clementine” which is a famous catchphrase of Huckleberry Hound who would sing it horrendously off-key.
Throughout the entire movie and especially through the scene, the lies that Cady came up with, have backfired. When the character Janice, falls into the “truth pit” and spills the truth on Cady, Regina goes nuts. In the beginning of the movie, everyone thought very highly of Cady but now the whole student body now thinks very low of her. The concept of lying and deception is particularly important to understanding what is going on because the concepts are the basis of the entire movie. It ties the entire movie together and you really get to see who the mean girls really are.
She was adopted when she was only young, her foster parents always fight and on top of that the whole school classifies her as a freak! Alyssa Brugman’s book “Walking Naked” is probably one of the most significant books I’ve read about schoolyard bullying. The book describes the bad side about bullying and its life changing consequences in this case. For me it made me stop and think about the way I treat people. Everyone is equal and deserve to be treated that way even if we are all a bit different in the way we look and act.
" Riberio said. "Why do you not like yourself to the point you hurt someone? Look in the mirror. The drama will never end, what can stop is the bullying. "(source) Says a girl who was being consistently cyber bullied through her freshman year.
