If Losing: Shock Therapy -5 points
If Winning: Lobotomy -10 points
Synthesis:
Women are raised to:
take up less space
be more obedient
talk less, listen
apologize
accommodate
be less dominant
homemakers
Mrs. Bromden
is portrayed as:
being too dominant
undermining, nagging
being 'bigger'
size = power
Nurse Ratched
is portrayed as:
villain
too controlling
too manipulative
doesn't submit to male power
emasculates men
"not feminine"
hides sexuality
On the other hand, McMurphy is portrayed as:
hero/savior
cunning and sly
doesn't submit to female power
empowering other men
powerful man who embraces his sexuality
Candy is portrayed as:
Supportive
traditionally feminine, small
encourages masculinity
Real life application:
Size and Women
Lily Myers recites a slam poem about her personal experiences with gender roles
How are these similar or different?
What does this remind you of?
Why are women taught this?

Why is this unfair?

What should we do to better ourselves as a society?
Explain:
Ken Kesey vs 1960's changing gender roles
demonizes strong female characters
uplifts strong male characters
fears being emasculated by strong females
Analysis:
its not her fault
internalized sexism
generations and environment of upbringing

When the men arrived at the gas station, one of the attendants came out to question them.
McMurphy realized the potential power that their mental illness status gave them.
He helped the patients use their insanity to intimidate the gas station attendants and get respect.
Explain: Finally the joke is on society, not them.
Real life application:
Special Privileges
Many people pretend to be physically disabled to trick people into giving them special privileges, like this beggar.
Analysis:
He, as an able-bodied person, selfishly pretended to be disabled, because he knew that he would get money out of the sympathy of others.

How do you think this makes people who are actually disabled feel?
Synthesis:

People take advantage of other people.

Why is this unfair?

What should we do to better ourselves as a society?
Mrs. Bromden was a Caucasian person. She conspired with the other white people to destroy an indian reservation, so that they could construct a hydroelectric dam for themselves.
Father loses power
Chief adopts mother's name
Chief becomes institutionalized
Chief witnesses nature < machines/Combine
Chief witnesses white people taking what shouldn't be theirs
Real life application:
Manifest Destiny
Rowie Shebala creates a poem to comment on the erasure, white-washing, and appropriation of her Native American culture.
Analysis:
Rowie's culture has been trivialized by modern Americans during Thanksgiving.
Native American culture is nearly invisible in today's society.
They have been erased, like Bromden's last name.

Synthesis:

White-washing is real. It happened. It's happening. It exists in the modern world.
Real people today are still facing the consequences of Manifest destiny.
Why is this unfair?

What can we do to improve ourselves as a society.
RULES
Turn:

What does this
remind you of?
What does this remind you of?
The Combine
inspected houses
wanted to take the falls, the village, the tribe
beat the Chief up in alleys in town
threatened him to give up the land
cut his hair short
tribes men stood at his front door with checks and questions
whips people down to size.

Explain: The white people desperately desired to take control of their land, and they resorted to violence. The Chief had no choice
What does this remind you of?
Dice-roller pick one:

(6:24-8:53) Kuvira vs Bandits

(13:10-14:28) Kuvira's threat
Real life Application:
Kuvira's Tyranny over the Earth Kingdom
Kuvira is a dictator who desires to reunite her people under one Empire.
She has a strong will, but she is desperate. Thus, she uses violence and fear to control anyone in her way and take what is hers. She doesn't give her opponents a choice.
Analysis:
Synthesis:
What does this say about people?
Some people will resort to using whatever they can to take whatever they want from whomever they please.
Why is this unfair? What can we do to improve ourselves as a society?
