...Is it good with water?" Her behavior can be interpreted to be a sign of insecurity more than anything else. Jig trusts his judgment, feels secure in his company and seems willing to do anything to keep him around. When pushed on the issue of the operation, Jig shows no real concern for her own health or mental well-being, stating categorically, "I don't care about me." Jig's main concern is whether or not she can make her partner happy so that they will "Be all right and be happy."
PTD is a disorder not a disease and those who experience it should not be treated differently but instead assisted in trying to maintain the normal lifestyle they once had to get past the trauma as much as possible, not only for themselves but for their families as well. PTSD is not something that happens to those who come back from combat but also happens to those who are survivors of “childhood sexual and physical abuse, rape, domestic violence, combat, terrorism, genocide, torture, kidnapping, and being a prisoner of war” (Counseling Military Families, pg 226). Relationships can be ruined or put on hold when it comes to those who experience PTSD because they tend to lockup and not want to let anyone else in after the experience the trauma. Some may turn to drugs and alcohol as an out, masking what they are feeling and trying to numb the pain and emptiness they feel. Those with PTSD need all the support possible from their spouses, family, and friends.
She never hesitates to tell the truth no matter the circumstances. Although she may have lied in court one single time, it was only to protect her husband, John Proctor, from everyone knowing about his affair. She did not lie to protect or better the situation for herself, but for her husband. This lie should not be a concern for the court, as she has never lied before this time. Abigail Williams has accused Elizabeth of wrongdoing.
However, on the other hand I feel that Zinn over-exaggerates. His biased point of view has noticeably seeped through previous chapters, but I was okay with it because I understand his point of view and what message he’s trying to get across. But when it comes to a matter like this, I don’t think he’s in any position to speak about the numerous and severe injustices done to women because those times of great inequality didn’t break any of these women; it only made them
Does everyone have the same definition too? People’s fear of crossing that line lies within this theory as well, once you cross that line there is no going back. Her most popular idea that there is only one proper way to have sex. Society is ignorant to other relationships, just because one couple does not participate in some sexual act does not make is ‘bad’. Rubin points out that we have learned to accept other cultures religions and customs but we fail to accept an understanding other ideas of love.
• “A minute later she asked me if I loved her. I told her it didn’t mean anything but that I didn’t think so.” Pg. 35 This is “existentialist” because of the indifference he has towards something as powerful as love in this relationship he has with Marie. He views it as no more than something just happening that he just so happens to be a part of. • “I said that people never change their lives, that in any case on life was as good as another and that I wasn’t dissatisfied with mine here at all.” Pg.
A first person narrative, which is also seen in this novel, is very effective in describing the story from the point of view of a certain character in the novel. Clara does not need to make any radical breaks with tradition to be an exceedingly independent woman. Her refusal to speak, although at first motivated by fear of the power of her words, is her first great gesture of self-assertion. Since traditionally women are meant to submit their opinions and their voices to those of men, this could be seen as a subservient gesture. However, as the Rumanian Rostipov explains, Clara does not talk because she does not want to.
Jane wishes not to be the best or the most good, only to get by without being beaten and humiliated. Helens way of thinking of life means that she doesn’t mind being hurt or beaten because this means she is closer to being taken to what she believes is her purpose, heaven. Helen welcomes punishment because she feels that she deserves punishment to make her better for the afterlife. Jane on the other hand does not like being punished and so does her best to avoid being reprimanded. Jane and Helen have very different relationships with adults.
I was really scared; I didn’t want her to get mad at me because she was a really good friend. So one day I just faced her and tell her the truth, she took it very well, she didn’t get angry or anything. So that teaches me that is a million times better to affront the problems at the beginning because avoiding it won’t solve it.
Maybe they don’t get enough attention at their house, or maybe they want friends but they can only show their mean side because they are actually scared of getting hurt themselves. Either way, no matter what the reasoning is, bullying is not okay. There was one girl, Sally, who I had got close with but then again we only talked in certain periods. Maybe it was because I was nice to her and partnered with her when no one else would, or maybe the simple fact I didn’t want her to feel left out that I was her friend. She never hurt me, or was mean to me, she just dressed different and wasn’t as fortunate as the rest of us.
