Feminism lens (Violet)
- "I looked at her funny. 'You write?'" (Anderson 65).
- "I looked at her pen. 'You write all the time,' i said, completely in awe" (Anderson 65).
- "'I've done it since i was little'" (Anderson 66).
Not only does Violet write, but even her use of vocabulary is different from the others. Violet does not swear, and she uses higher level vocabulary.
In addition, Violet shows resistance towards the feed, and when asked why she does this, she replies:
- "'I'm pretentious'" (Anderson 66).
This is an example of her superiority over the others failure to resist the feed, as well as her use of vocabulary.
Not only does Violet stand out from the other teens, she also shows more intelligence than one of the doctors, who is a male:
- "'Okay. Could we like get a thingie'" (Anderson 69).
Violet is the only female that shows these traits, but the fact she is a female stands out. Violet is the only character that is able to think independently from the feed, out her own curiosity without the feed conflicting with her thoughts:
- "'Do you think things are going to be different?'...'We've all been through this big thing together'... 'It's got to change us somehow'" (Anderson 80).
Titus and Violet demonstrate the connection without technology, and is felt between all of the interference of the feed itself:
- "She held my hand - we found each other's hands through the like, the waterfall" (Anderson 71).
- "Hand in hand, we danced" (Anderson 72).
If not, what other aspect may be allowing her to think so independently from the feed?
