If women did not exist , what would our world be like today?
Reading the Ramayana not only made me strongly agree with this quote but also analyze Sita in this story as well.
Rama, brave and powerful human , avatar of Vishnu, had a beautiful wife named Sita. After Rama is sent to exile for 14 years , Sita demands him to take her with him, Rama left with no choice , accepts.
As the story continues , one day , Ravana , “supreme lord of this and other worlds” (pg.74), kidnaps Sita , and runs away with her.
In the book called The Ramayana, Queen Kaikeyi's situation is she wants her son to be crowned king instead of Rama and send Rama to the forest for 14 years. Soorpanaka's situation is that she likes Rama, but Rama rejected her, so she planned to take revenge on him. Sita's situation is that she was kidnapped by the demon called Ravana.
The part of Gilgamesh that disturbed me the most was on page 90:
"Gilgamesh, you are unique among these humans. Your mother, the goddess Ninusun, mad you stronger and braver than any mortal, and rightly has Enlil granted you the kingship, since you are destined to rule over men." They embraced and kissed. They held hands like brothers. They walked side by side. They became true friends."
In the book Gilgamesh, Enkidu and Gilgamesh's relationship started off bad. They had fights. Many things happened in between them later. Later on in the book, their relationship changes. For example, on page 90, the entire paragraph, it says "Gilgamesh, you are unique among humans. Your mother, the goddess Ninsun, made you stronger and braver than any mortal, and rightly has Enlil granted you to the kingship, since you are destined to rule over men. They embraced and kissed. They held hands like brothers. They walked side by side.
Disturbed me. The part where the man and the women have sex make me feel disturbed. It's that I wasn't expecting that so I thought to myself why is my teaching me this? Why are we looking at this in class? This is one of the things that creeped me out the most because I think we should be learning about in health class, not in class, so it was just awkward and weird for me because of these pictures. The pictures were the one that surprise me because I didn't know we were going to see pictures like that and we were going to talking about that in class.
This text defines femininity and masculinity by men dominates everything like a king and the women would have to obey whatever the men says. The women is marginalized and objectified like they don’t matter in life. This text also defines how women and men are separated into two group. Even in the Ramayana, Rama took over in whatever Sita did. Sita would do whatever she could do to be with Rama forever. The men would do whatever they did and the women would follow.
The Hunger Games is about a girl name Katniss contributed to take over her sister's place in the Olympics.The Olympics is about picking a boy and a girl from each district to kill each other and the last person to survive is the winner. News about Katniss went all over the districts and so everybody know who she is. The battles are very hard in the games. You have to risk everything in order to survive and live.
When i started reading Sexy by Joyce Carol Oates, i found this book very heart warming. Darren is very insecure about himself and feels that every one else thinks the worse about him. Darren's family think he's too soft and that just makes him feel worse about himself. What Darren doesn't know is that many girls find him attractive and a good swimmer, he isn't like those other rude hot guys.
Many people don't realize that when they make unnecessary comments those people who are being judged take it seriously and it really affects them.
When i read 101 ways to dance i realized that Kathy Stinson wrote this book so the teenagers who read this book can relate to it. 101 ways to dance has to do with teenage stories.
When many teens begin there teenage years they realize there true identity. Many teenagers realize that they love there same gender or the opposite way around. This book is a judge free book because these teens experience different cases.
