Sierings and o'reilly's arguments

Siering’s and O’Reilly’s arguments
            While I was reading Carmen D. Siering’s article “Taking a Bite out of Twilight” I never realized how feminist the Twilight series was. I felt as if this essay would have never said anything then I would have never figured it out. Siering pointed out parts in the movie that were feminist, which really made a clear view on my head. Then, in Julie D. O’Reilly’s argument about wonder woman he made it clear to us that Men super heroes didn’t have to prove nothing about have potential to be a superhero; however, wonder woman always had to prove she had potential just because she was a woman. Also that Super heroines don’t  receive the same credit. O’Reilly also pointed out that Male and women super heroes both have equal amount of strength.

I feel like both O’reilly and Sierings have similar arguments because they are both talking about women being put down in society. For example, Oreily talks about how women superheroes have to proof their potential as having strength, and Siering talks about how Bella has to be controlled by a man. Lastly, I feel they differ from there arguments by both having different views. For example, O’reilly felt like women had to prove their potential and Siering felt as if bella had to be controlled by a man. Both arguments deal with differ from that perspective. Overall I felt like reading both essays really made me realize that women are being put down before our eyes and we as the audience don’t even notice.

  1. I agree with your last point, it is sadly true that women are constantly put down before our eyes and we hardly notice. Which is something that can cause negative effects since children and adults are exposed to these anti-feminist values.
