    Award-winning author and feminist Ursula K. Le Guin delivered a rhetorically complex speech to the Mills College graduating class of 1983, comprised almost entirely of women. Her speech came at a challenging time for women, as second-wave feminism began to dissolve into a myriad of disagreeing factions. The title of the speech, the “Left-Handed Commencement Address,” is a reference to her book The Left Hand of Darkness, which follows an androgynous race of space aliens. This foreshadows the…

    aware of his existence meaning more might believe in what he believes in also. So the author's main purpose was to show how social media can greatly increase the popularity and awareness of politicians and their campaigns. I already don’t agree with Trump or his views but one thing that I don’t agree with in the article is when Trump says, “I would have preferred I didn’t send it… That sometimes you do things in fun and they turn out to be hurtful and I don’t like doing that”.
