    popular media is unveiled through the effect of advertisements on the standards of beauty that appear in the text, which are based on one’s skin color, eye color and hair color. The effect of advertisement on girls in the story is negative, because of their reactions to what society deems beautiful. Blond haired, blue eyed baby dolls represent the standards of beauty, making Claudia wonder why she is not considered beautiful. Claudia receives the baby dolls as Christmas gifts when she asks for something different, because society tells the family that the best, “loving gift [is] always a big, blue eyed baby doll” (20). She becomes upset when people assume she wants a white baby doll. Confused why they assume so, she searches for a way to figure out what makes the baby dolls so beautiful, so she “destroy[s] [the] white baby dolls” looking for an answer (22). Essentially, Claudia rips apart the baby dolls in an effort to try to understand why these white, blond-haired and blue-eyed girls are considered pretty and she was not. She is angered and does not understand how having dark skin, brown hair and brown eyes makes her ugly. All Claudia wants to do is to figure out what makes blond-haired and blue-eyed girls so beautiful and “what ma[kes] people look at them and say, ‘Awwwww,” but not for [her]” (22). People assume that little girls will want to play with blonde-haired and blue-eyed baby dolls, just because they are what society deems beautiful. Such obsession with the…

    doing the looking. Beauty myths for women are demeaning, where a woman’s value is pleased around her looks. From a young age, women are taught that they much change their bodies to “improve” themselves, either through fashion, makeup or constantly exercising. Bordo stated that the body is made, “through table manners, toilet habits, through seemingly trivial routines, rules and practices,” (Bordo, 2014, pg.473). Women are made to constantly feel inadequate in both physical and emotional…

    summoned hero was at least tall, somewhat average looking, with a beaked nose and lightly tanned skin but anything mildly positive about him stops there. His summoning was equally as bad, explosive poo bursting from his rear onto the summoners just moments before his body planted into the ground, rear dangling in the air. He was arrogant, telling everyone to…fuck off, whatever the words themselves meant, the sentence was clear enough by his tone of voice, when we tried to help him stand.…

    occasions. Once up the stairs my room is the 4th door on the left. I enter my room to see my dress for the evening's meeting already laid out on my bed. It’s as I had expected it to be, a monstrosity. It’s a long sleeve floor length forest green dress. I hate it. If a life threatening situation were to occur at the meeting I would have no chance at getting away or defending myself. I hurry up and get dressed knowing a servant would be sent up to my room any time now to do my hair. It seems like…

    Many will say that having good hair means for it to be “razor-thin blond hair” as Cepeda stated “people in Santo Domingo call it bueno.” However, for a type of hair to be defined as being good, it’s only based upon the interpretation of the beholder. Due to the fact that as we can sense, Cepeda is not a “razor-thin blond hair” woman; instead she most likely has curly hair. Which she describes it as “ripple like the water in Boca Chica,” As curly hair has lots of endless curves, like the water in…

    wasn't the right person for her. The all powerful ninja considered his request. "I can not bring myself to do that, Uzumaki Naruto. If you are to return to the past, you must bear every memory with you. After all, without the pain you experienced, you would've never grown as a person or a ninja." Naruto had hoped the answer would've been different, but couldn't say that the man's claim was false. I'll just distance myself from her. It'll be easier for me and her anyways.

    Vivien Rose was relaxing at her favourite spot in the country, sitting under the big willow tree. She observed the snowdrop flowers that popped through the moist earth in the early spring. Watching the bubbling brook that wound its way through the field, past patches of lavender while she listened to the birds singing their songs of spring. Her dirty blonde hair blew in the breeze and her young green eyes shone brightly. She had never shown her special place to anyone. As far as she knew, no…
