The Freak is a ‘‘bad girl’’ who gains male attention through an overt sexual persona. She appears sexually liberated, empowered, and seeks sex solely for physical satisfaction, not for a relationship. A debate rages over weather the Freak reﬂects a true persona of sexual empowerment, or if she is simply reinforcing and falling victim to male desires about female sexuality.

By having sex to rebel against the mind-controlling Youth Movement’s talks about pro-creational sex, Julia goes against the Party because “sexual privation induces hysteria…and could be transformed into war-fever” (822). Sex poses danger to the Party, and because the Party outlaws it, Julia becomes an outsider. Unlike Winston and Julia, Parsons transforms from an outsider who hated Big Brother to an insider after staying in “the place where there is no darkness” (757). The place Parson transforms in refers to the room in the Ministry of Love in which torture alters people’s beliefs.
