RE: Carrie Question #2

Due to Carrie's erratic behavior and fanatical-christian mother, many fellow students within her school can't help but tease the girl for her peculiar actions and heritage. One student among the many being Chris Hargensen that humiliate Carrie for her period in the beginning. While it isn't clear whether or not she truly hated Carrie in the beginning, Chris despises the girl once she is forced to endure punishment for bullying Carrie. In which she is pushed to do vigorous exercises and denied permission to go to the prom when she refuses to do any further physical activities. Along with being humiliated in front of her friends, Chris's frustration soon turns into anger and the urge to seek revenge against Carrie for the punishments she had received. While Carrie did not do anything directly against Chris to make the girl despise her, Chris still manages to hate her thanks to the punishment she had received from their teacher.

Why does Chris Hargensen despise Carrie so much?

Post  dannyd76 on Fri Oct 28, 2016 5:33 pm

Carrie is hated by many, especially Chris, because her mom is a crazy Catholic, Carrie is capable of basically nothing, and the fact that Carrie is an anti social person that is uneducated in almost everything. Carrie has her first period in the shower scene and Chris makes fun of her for never having one and not knowing what was going on; The gym teacher found out about the situation and made the rest of the class do a weeks of fitness which just reinforced Chris' hate for Carrie. Carrie may just simply annoy Chris and although it may not be on purpose it still annoys Chris which is something that happens in life and people. Carrie isn't popular and Chris is so that also affects Chris' opinion of Carrie. With all evidence and inference aside Chris just may not like Carrie and not have any reasons to like her. This is why Chris despises Carrie.

In the movie, Chris Hargensen hates Carrie so much, because she is just an odd human being. It all starts when Carrie gets her period for the first time, and all Chris was trying to do was help by giving her a hand but Carrie goes crazy and wipes blood all over them. Keeping in mind that Carrie doesn't know why she was bleeding there and that she was raised differently by her crazy religious mother she does not know what is wrong or right and as a result , when things happen to her and she gets embarrassed things tend to escalate quickly. Which is why Chris hates her and thinks its appropriate to make fun of her for being weird. Not only that but because Carrie embarrasses Chris who is a popular girl in school, she feels the need to get revenge on Carrie.

Chris Hargensen herself is a spoiled and popular girl who is none other than a bully. She has no reason to pick on Carrie, but right from the start we see her teasing Carrie for not knowing she had her period. She takes every chance she can get to degrade people she think is less than her in order to make herself feel good. Carrie is an easy target when it comes to releasing teenage angst. With an fundamentalist Christian mother and being secluded from the very likes of society makes her very anti-social and isolated from a life other than home and school. Chris generally isn't a very pleasant girl who is even disrespectful toward her teacher exhibiting her lack of regard. The real hatred toward Carrie began when the whole gym class was punished for humiliating Carrie not knowing she had her period. When Chris refused to cooperate the opportunity of going to prom was sized and she then became angry and made it her mission to do whatever she could to take revenge. She just liked to pick on Carrie, but near the end detested her because of not being able to go to prom which lead to her setting up the blood and eventually even tried to run her over before Carrie killed them using her mind powers.

Chris hates carry mostly because of after she teased her about getting her period for the first time at the beginning of the movie she got punished for it and she then was not allowed to attend the prom. She didn't like Carrie because Carrie and her mother were very holy people and they like to pray away all of their problems and they weren't really living in real life they kind of have their own little bubble so the students. At school couldn't really help themselves but to tease her about everything and especially because she was kind of an off child that didn't help either.

Chris Hargensen doesn't like Carrie simple because she is different. She never once was treated by Carrie and Carrie barley even spoke to Chris's friends. She treats Carrie cruelly because she holds the power to. Chris is the head of the popular girl's group and had the most popular boyfriend and she hits her. I think she uses her sexuality to over power her stronger boyfriend and her mean nature to control the girls at her school. I don't think Chris has a legitament reason to do the things she did to Carrie other than because she wanted to.

I believe Chris hates Carrie because of a mix of Carrie's mother being a crazy Catholic, Carrie not being very talkative and very antisocial, and also because she finds Carrie weird and odd for not knowing what a girl's period is. Popularity also ties in with this, as Chris is very popular at school and has to fit in and be like everyone else, so though she has her own reasons for disliking Carrie, I'd say she also despises Carrie because everyone around her also despises Carrie, and so not hating her would make Chris feel left out. With that, I'm sure Chris doesn't like anyone who isn't popular, and Carrie fits right into that whole spectrum. Embarrassing Carrie and making her feel worthless and stupid must make Chris feel good about herself, as she doesn't stop the torment even when she is subjected to lots of physical exercises and even has her prom ticket taken from her. The way Carrie is at home and at school is perfect for Chris when it comes to targeting and bullying, and since she can do whatever she wants to her and in a way still get away with it, she won't stop even when told to.

Chris hates Carrie for not what Carrie has done but what she did to Carrie has caused her. Chris hated that Carrie got them in trouble and that she had to do work outs for her punishment and if she didn't do it she couldn't go to prom. Being Chris she is very snotty and she didn't think it was fair and thought Carrie was cause of it so she wanted to revenge. Chris overreacted and despises Carrie just because she got caught. She is the true definition of a bully.

Chris is portrayed as the type of person who needs to abuse others to make herself feel more powerful. Carrie was an obvious outsider, with essentially no friends and who displayed odd behaviour which set her apart from the others. In much the same way as predators attack the weakest of the pack, Chris chose Carrie as her target as she was the most helpless and easy to ridicule. Her hatred of Carrie only intensifies after she is forced to endure detention as a result of her bullying the girl. Chris doesn't recognize that she is at fault for her own actions, and instead blames Carrie for her punishment. This culminates in Chris wanting to get revenge on Carrie by pulling the pig's blood prank on her.

Chris hates carrie mostly because she got chris punished and is now not allowed to go to prom and has to do workout punishments . Carrie got teased about getting her period for the first time at the beginning of the movie. Chris was mad because she couldn't go to prom and saw that Carrie was going to the prom, so she wanted to get Carrie back and planed the whole pig blood prank. This was to get revenge on Carrie but in the end Carrie was the more powerful woman.

Re: Why does Chris hate Carrie?

Chris hate's Carrie due to the incident of Carrie experiencing her period for the first time and making fun of her. The female coach was the only friend of Carrie and came to her defense by making all her students have detention and if they leave or skip out on detention they won't attend prom. In one of the scenes during the film the coach grew a bigger backbone and stood her ground against Chris' onslaught of insults and constant complaining of how it's unfair of how they get punished for teasing Carrie.

I think that Chris hates Carrie for a couple of reasons. For starters, I believe that most kids at that level in the social food chain feel the need to establish their dominance towards all others under them. I think that Chris realized how fragile Carrie is and used her as her "popularity punching bag" to make sure that everyone knew who the boss was. I also think that Chris is the type of person that thrives on the misfortune of others and when Carrie experienced her first period, Chris jumped on the opportunity to make herself feel better. Overall I think Chris is a bad person that generally dislikes everyone but her close friend group.
