Beatlemania: Girls Just Want to Have Fun; Ehrenreich\
Beatlemania discusses the sexual appeal that young woman had towards the Beatles during the 1960’s. At the time, women were expected to repress their sexual feelings. In order to become a ‘perfect house wife’, women were required to walk a fine line by appearing presentable, proper, and sexually preserved in order to attract the attention of men or potential husbands. Women who did not follow this way of life were to be publicly scorned. There was a great deal of pressure accompanied by a fear of being rejected that many young women felt during this time, so when the Beatles entered America these women were able to vent their repressed feelings. Thus, this enormous amount of Beatle admiration in the 1960’s was merely the start of a sexual liberation for women. It is clear that their almost obsessive and somewhat senseless love for the Beatles was for personal liberation because the majority of them knew they would never actually marry or have any sort of involvement with the members. I agree that these young women able to somewhat personally reject their futures by using the Beatles to escape their predictable life paths. However, at the same time I am not sure I see this happening in contemporary pop culture. Young girls today do not nearly have the same amount of pressures placed on them to find a husband, and yet there is still a large amount of fan craze surrounding boy pop bands such as One Direction, and Justin Bieber. Thus, I believe there are still many questions as to why the Beatles became so insanely popular at the time, and I think there may be something more than just young woman attempting to break from their gender

Or, if the offender ran up to Stephanie´s porch and grabbed her there. I believe Stephanie was on the porch before the offender tricked her to him or grabbed her because her sister found her half-finished…
