- Abortion When one thinks about a topic that would have several different opinions, many things can come to mind.

Some see it simply as an election issue, and some see it as murder and think it should be banned.

Horror Films Provoke Fear, Alarm, and Panic

- Camera Angles: Horror Films Horror films are unsettling films designed to frighten and panic, cause dread and alarm, and to invoke our hidden worst fears, often in a terrifying, shocking finale, while captivating and entertaining us at the same time in a cathartic experience.

Gossip Girl and the Post-Feminist Era

- ... As author Angela McRobbie states, popular culture and the role of consumption actually degrade feminism “while simultaneously appearing to be engaging in a well-informed and even well-intended response to feminism,” (McRobbie).
