Whether people like it or not, society always summarizes a person's characteristics by his or her physical appearance. Society has set an unbreakable code that individuals must follow to be accepted. Those who don't follow the "standard" are hated by the crowd and banned for the reason of being different. When the monster ventured into a town"...[monster] had hardly placed [his] foot within the door ...children shrieked, and ...women fainted" (101). *** CAN YOU USE [HE] HERE AS A PRONOUN SINCE YOU JUST SAID “MONSTER”?
When analyzing Freaks and Geeks, it is apparent that this television show demonstrates the physical and emotional effects of bullying through character Bill Haverchuck. As a breeding ground for bullies, high school has become a place that is miserable for select students. If a student is not a prime athlete or is not accepted by their peers, he is more than likely going to be bullied at some point during his high school career. The geeks of any high school normally endure the majority of bullying. The consequences of insults and physical abuse on students are horrible.
That being said makes it no surprise that Disney constantly gets an anti-feminist label on all of their creations. The theme of the princesses’ perfect appearance being necessary to get them the prince often reoccurs. This idea is also backed up by Kathi Maio who states, “The movie says if a young woman is pretty and sweet-natured, she can change an abusive man into a kind and gentle man. In other words it is a woman’s fault if her man abuses her” (Disney’s Dolls).... ... middle of paper ... ...n by naming the title of the movie after the main female protagonists. Just look at the Little Mermaid, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and even Beauty and the Beast.
The creature in "Frankenstein" is first wrongly judged by his own creator which sparks the hatred he has of all humans by the end of the novel. He is abandoned by the one who made him and is left confused and clueless. The creature quickly learns many things, most definite though, the unjust prejudice people have towards him because of his unfortunate ugliness. His hopelessness and hatred of humans is solidified when he learns of his creator's feelings of disgust towards him. When speaking to his creator he explains, "instead of threatening, I am content to reason with you.
Kenny was a primary one student then, and because of his younger age, his assailants kicked and punched him. It was till the time when Kenny complained of a stomach-ache and refused to say anything that his parents found out that he was being bullied. Despite complaining to the school a few times, it seemed that the situation itself did not improve and that was when he decided to lodge a police report. (P1-P23, Bryna, The New Paper, Mon, Feb 13 2012) This shows that the bully is persistent in his actions, despite several actions taken by the teachers in school. His actions could cause much harm to his surrounding peers or may influence others to join him.
They define beauty as having the perfect body image, just as Disney princess movies have taught them. Moreover, the bad people or witches in these movies always seem to be ugly, fat, or basically unattractive. This changes young girls’ view of the society, leading them to develop low self-esteem if they don’t meet the princesses’ standard (Dundes, 8). Since, Disney features the male character (prince) to be romantically linked to the female character (princess), young girls who do not think that they have the image of a princess will get the impression that they cannot be loved by handsome wealthy men (England, Descartes, Collier-Meek, 3). Also, they will consider themselves to b... ... middle of paper ... ...r society.
When one is taunted or ostracized, the pain they feel is not only emotional but physical as well. The notion “sticks and stones” has been shown to be untrue. Sian Beilock, Ph.D. spoke about research which shows that, “intense social rejection really does share a lot in common with physical pain”. People that are abandoned, teased, rejected, taunted, or ridiculed by their peers may at first seek to do good things, as the monster in Frankenstein attempted. Should this not result in acceptance, these same seemingly weak people can strike out with devastating consequences.
Because of The Creation’s looks he is shunned and treated horribly by the people around him. This leads to his horrible mistreatment towards him, which is one of the causes of his monstrous ways. Chris Bond, in his scholarly article, “Frankenstein: is it really about the dangers of science?” writes about the true meaning of who The Creation is. He writes that, “..Because he cannot integrate into society, becomes alienated from common kindness and interaction, and rewards ostracism with violent crime” (Bond). The Creation is forced into this life of hatred of himself and of other people because of the way he is treated based off of his looks and initial appearances.

Another hatred message today and a broken heart tomorrow, pretty soon the world will start to think cyber bullying is normal. Many people in the world use offensive words to bully an innocent person because of their nationality, personality or even weight, not realizing how much of a negative impact it can have on the person being bully. The choices students, parents and even citizens make while addressing someone could change their life mentally and socially even if that person is not harming them physically it torments the bullied person on the inside.
