Examples of rigidly in a Sentence

  1. Agatha Christie:

  2. Margaret Mead:

    People in America, of course, live in all sorts of fashions, because they are foreigners, or unlucky, or depraved, or without ambition; people live like that, but Americans live in white detached houses with green shutters. Rigidly, blindly, the dream takes precedence.

  3. Andrea Dworkin:

    In this society, the norm of masculinity is phallic aggression. Male sexuality is, by definition, intensely and rigidly phallic. A man's identity is located in his conception of himself as the possessor of a phallus; a man's worth is located in his pride in phallic identity. The main characteristic of phallic identity is that worth is entirely contingent on the possession of a phallus. Since men have no other criteria for worth, no other notion of identity, those who do not have phalluses are not recognized as fully human.

  4. Justin Amash:

  5. Jennifer Dillaha:

    We have a weak immunization infrastructure, consequently, because there are access issues, it varies from school to school how rigidly they enforce attendance requirements for vaccinations.
