Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Just because someone looks or acts differently doesn't make them any less human. Hazel and George Bergeron's son, Harrison, stands a tall7 feet and weighs a strong 300 pounds. His handicaps outweigh allof those around him. He rebels against the government, and is placed in jail. The society within the story needs to accept that people are not going to be equal and everyone has to accept other's differences. In the episode, Eye of the Beholder, from the Twilight Zone,people who didn't look like others in societywere treated differently. In the short storyHarrison Bergeron, all people must be equal. If someone is superior to another, they are givenhandicaps to ensure their equality toothers. Miss Tyler, a young character in the story, was not perceived as beautiful in the eyes of the parallel universe within the story. She was given bandages to cover her face after surgery. After the surgery wasn't successful, she was told she had to go to a community for people who look like her. One day he escapes from jail, and interrupts a TV programming. He declares that he is the Emperor, and selects his Empress from a group of ballerinas. They dance with no handicaps, showing viewers the possibilities of what other people can do in life. Both Harrison and his Empress are shot by Diana Moon Glampers for showing people the possible in life. The rest of Harrison's appearance was Halloween and hardware. Nobody had ever born heavier handicaps...he wore a tremendous pair of earphones, and spectacles with thick wavy lenses. The spectacles were intended to make him not only half blind, but to give him whanging headaches besides.(Vonnegut 43) THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal...Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else... All this equality was due to...the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.(Vonnegut 1) Melissa Purcell, Lauren Parisi, Amber Bovenschulte, Ally Botwinick Everyone isdifferent in theirown way and peoplewill never be exactly thesame. Everyone has to accept that because differences are what make people human. Deeper than that pitiful, twisted lump of flesh- deeper even than that misshapen skeletal mask.I've seen that woman's real face, nurse- the face of her real self.It's a good face. It's a human face.“
I understand, but i must confess, it's easier for me to think of her as humanwhen her face is covered up.
” But why? Why must we feel that way, nurse? What is the dimensional difference between beauty and something repellant? Is it skin deep? Oh, less than that.Why, nurse? Why shouldn't people be allowed to be different?” You'll, uh you'll be with your own kind, and in alittle while- oh, you'll be amazed how little a while- you'll feel a sense of great belonging. People want to feel accepted. The doctor feels that Miss Tyler will feel accepted when surrounded by people of her own kind. Quote from the Doctor
