The Outsiders: Lost Innocence
Transcript of The Outsiders: Lost Innocence
Not intended to cause harm or offense; harmless.
"an innocent mistake"
Synonyms: harmless, benign, innocuous, safe, inoffensive
Throughout the story, the boys mature and lose their innocence. Ponyboy Curtis and Johnny matured the most.
Both Ponyboy and Johnny grew together throughout the story. Going through the hardships that they did, they learned how to take care of themselves.
Ponyboy is the main character in the story. He is best friends with Johnny Cade. When Johnny kills Bob, Ponyboy had to go into hiding. Johnny and Ponyboy had to take care of themselves without the help of the older boys in the gang. This required Ponyboy to mature and that's when he "Lost his innocence."
"No!" I screamed at him. " I'm fourteen! I've been fourteen for a month! And I'm in it as much as you are. I'll stop crying in a minute... I can't help it."
Johnny Cade loses his innocence when he was jumped by the Socs, and on that day, he almost died. He promised he would kill the next person who jumped him, which he did, four months later. When he killed Bob, he wasn't the same again.
"He looks like a puppy that's been kicked too many times"

Dallas Winston is the most dangerous boy in the gang. He had spent three years on the wild side of New York and had been arrested at the age of ten. He lost his innocence when he was much younger just from seeing the terrible things that he did when he lived in the city.
Ponyboy says," He was tougher than the rest of us- tougher, colder, meaner."
How Does Loss of Innocence Relate to Us?
When my parents got divorced, I was the oldest of my siblings. When I went to my dad's house, I would have to do the things that my mother would normally have to do, such as brush their hair and pick out their clothing each morning.
This is a video on Aaron, an eighteen year old male who lost his innocence at a young age.
