This has an impact on victims because they may feel that their victimization should be taken more serious than what media has projected (Gebotys, 1988) Further research should illustrate what specific type of attention from the media would be beneficial for the public but still respects the victim’s privacy. There should also be more attention towards how to protect victims and decrease media discrimination. This is significant because media a part of our daily lives; being that so, it is important to be aware of the impacts it may have on victim.
Evaluating and Refining Solutions: Hate crimes can be described as criminal activities that are perceived to be fueled by prejudice against and hostility towards the victim based on an individual characteristic. In most cases, hate crimes are motivated by gender, disability, sexual orientation, race, identity, and religion or faith. The increase in hate crimes in the recent past has not only made it a major issue that needs to be addressed in the modern society but has also attracted several legislative measures to deal with it. However, dealing with this major societal issue not only requires these legislative measures but also necessitate creative and critical thinking to enhance the effectiveness of initiatives taken to address it. The development of suitable initiatives through creative and critical thinking requires evaluating and refining resolutions.
This is because it shows that the ostracisms and penalization of those that choose to go against performing to fit gender roles is in fact done so on the foundation of changing concepts, performance, and gender roles. How we perform in society solidifies certain hegemonic social conventions in society, such as gender roles. Performing outside what is allotted to each gender role has led to consequences, specifically for the queer community, such as policing and ostracism. However, drag through the parodying of the performances connected with each gender role has shown performance and gender roles fluidity, the capability of change. As Meg-John Barker and Julia Scheele notes in Queer-A Graphic History “...there's no real, authentic performance of gender.
This feature also brings forth more destructive pathos in listeners such as repulsion and disdain. In the breakdown of the song, Thicke sings, “Do it like it hurt, like it hurt/ what you don’t like to work?” (lines 94-95). Sung so smoothly, some people almost miss the part where he implies sex should be painful for this woman and she shouldn’t complain about that. In spite of his
“Remember that forgiveness too is a power,” she continues, “to beg for it is a power, and to withhold or bestow it is a power, perhaps the greatest.”(135) This powerful message speaks to human behavior no matter the societal construction. Marginalizing women in feminist groups and Gilead is not a matter of controlling power. Instead, Offred believes “it’s about who can do what to whom and be forgiven for it” (135), warning society not to forget how to treat others and learn from past mistakes. Sexual objectification, patriarchal authority, and lack of solidarity are methods to silence women. Women in The Handmaid’s Tale are marginalized to critique utopian feminism.
The government declares this a feminist improvement on the sexual politics of today when women are seen as sex objects. The harsh message and unhappy tone in the Handmaid’s Tale makes it difficult to comprehend sometimes. It is a novel of a world we do not want, but could possibly see, and a reminder that we must embrace our freedoms and fight back when anyone, especially the Government tries to take them away. Atwood has intentionally placed the events of the novel in a historical context, as she urges us to think and see that such a fate is not far off, but imaginable, especially in societies like Piexoto’s that mask their sexi... ... middle of paper ... ... of her?

From this stance, it becomes much clearer why this disturbing climax was essential, especially when considering the shocking conclusion to the play. The feminist’s lack of serious discussion of the necessity of the rape scene is the weak link in their argument. While feminists concede that the character of Blanche is a woman with more than a few “inconsistencies”, their description of Stanley as a "monster" is not justified. Feminists neglect to consider Stanley’s vulnerability as a factor in the rape; but they justify... ... middle of paper ... ... and the rape are archetypes of society, representing the battle between good will and survival, good and evil, class and inhumanity, behind which the driving force is utter desire!

Sex work has long been criticized and stigmatized in our society. Whereas several members of society read sex work as immoral and degrading to girls, feminist argue that sex work is basically simply work, which it's not essentially harmful to girls. beneath circumstances within which sex work is accepted and controlled in society, within which the sex employee is protected and granted an equivalent rights as the other laborer, sex work has the chance to be helpful to girls. Sex work is terribly profitable for girls, and plenty of girls might fancy work that permits them to creatively categorical their sexuality Sex work will enable individuals how to securely explore their sexual needs in ways in which they can not through the present social
Even Atticus, a man who stands for equality, makes sexist comments of his own; "I guess it's to protect our frail women from sordid cases like Tom's." (221) Atticus' remarks prove that sexism and gender roles are a norm in society, and their offensiveness is not greatly considered. It's not just the men who place women in their roles; it's the women themselves who take it upon themselves to enforce these rules. Racism is an issue that has long been tackled in society, but it is evident that women in society have only just begun to break free of long held values which have oppressed them in the past.
Somehow this is supposed to benefit girls by teaching them that “sexuality defines how ‘good’ women are, and that women’s moral compasses are inextricable from their bodies...(Valenti 299).” What it comes down to is this: Women cannot be sexual but must possess some sex appeal. When the statistics show that “ninety-seven percent of Americans will have sex before marriage (Filipovic 17),” does this mean that the majority of women should walk around with the word “dirty” stamped on their forehead? This becomes a problem when women are gang-rapped or young girls are molested and they do not speak up about their experience.
