Men
Dave Barry’s insight in Guys vs. Men begins to explore the world of the male figure. Barry touches base on a few things that he believes separates guys and men apart. Barry first mentions that “Guys Like Neat Stuff” and begins to explain that guys enjoy things that are unnecessary to have and perhaps a bit over the top but they are things that make them happy and keep them entertained. Barry then moves into talking about how “Guys Like A Really Pointless Challenge”. Barry mentions that guys often engage in activities that are beyond what should be the standard rational of middle aged men. His thoughts on how “Guys Do Not Have A Well-Defined Moral Code” briefly delves into how guys know that they are expected to perform and act a certain way, yet they often completely disregard these ideas held by others on how they should act, not on purpose but just because they are in fact guys. The last thing Barry brings up is that “Guys Are Not Great At Communicating Their Intimate Feelings, Assuming They Have Any”. Barry presents the idea that guys tend to keep personal issues, just that, personal. Guys generally keep answers to questions they don’t want to answer brief at best, and the only time they share how they feel is most often when in the company of another guy friend. Dave Barry’s Guys vs. Men is a funny, interesting and seemingly true effort at explaining who guys really are, and why they are that way. View More »

    Have you ever seen a commercial with an attractive person in it and thought to yourself, “I wish I could look like that?” Well, so have other Americans and that is what are wrong with today’s society.

    A flag football game was held out at the Northern Illinois University Outdoor Recreation Sports Complex on September 20, 2017. It was nothing large scale considering there was hardly an audience and it was a quiet night, no music playing, but there were four teams participating. There were official referees, but no coaches, just four teams of guys all wearing different colors, depending on their team. There were not even any scoreboards, just the referees to keep track. The group playing on the field closest to the benches were wearing gray or black. The gray team, for the most part, seemed li

    Virtù

    When one hears virtue, the ideas that come to mind are morality and righteousness. In essence, these are conventional Christian values that have become widely known today. However, in the context of giving advice to would-be rulers, Machiavelli defines the concept of virtue as virtù—one’s own strength and courage to do whatever is necessary to achieve a goal, even if the act was immoral. He describes virtù as a quality vital for a prince; a prince can be ruthless as long as his actions are directed towards his goals and keep him in power. According to Machiavelli’s interpretation, one must fol

    In Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse-Five , the englishmen stand out as “clean and enthusiastic and decent and strong” (Vonnegut 119). They exhibit every romantic quality possibly derived from the brave men sent off to defend their country from villainy, and are even the subject of adoration for the nazis who run their prison. It would be easy to mistakenly say that these men give war a glorious image. However, they actually mock it. They stand out from every other character not only for being the epitome of strength and honor, but also for being “among the first English-speaki

    Disability can be a delicate topic to talk about, but thankfully the four friends that I had interviewed were all very open about their opinions, and they all gave me plenty of insight and different views on disability. I have very well informed friends, therefore each of their views, values, and opinions I take into consideration and compare them to my own. All four of my interviewees, regardless of having a disability or not, have rather similar views on the topic. The first two people I had interviewed, both not having any sort of disability, have relatively similar answers. Upon being p

    Disparities In Major Sports Coverage Between Men And Women

    1291 words, 6 pages

    Sociology 300 Sport is a major part of the American culture. People play the sports they like, as well as watch their favorite teams. Although, there is so much love for the game, sometimes the media has a different way of showing its love. There is also an unbalanced representation in sport coverage between men and women. For instance, in women’s soccer, they have had more successes than the men’s team, yet they do not get as much media coverage and are paid less than the men’s team. Not only that, in media coverage, if an athlete is involved in a crime, it will make headlines and the top

    A Geisha’s Struggle For Happiness “We human beings are only a part of something very much larger. When we walk along, we may crush a beetle or simply cause a change in the air so that a fly ends up where it might never have gone otherwise. And if we think of the same example but with ourselves in the role of the insect, and the larger universe in the role we’ve just played, it’s perfectly clear that we’re affected every day by forces over which we have no more control than the poor beetle has over our gigantic foot as it descends upon it. What are we to do? We must use whatever method
