Tom also gives Daisy the image of loving wife and mother that she feels she needs for the public eye, regardless of what happens behind closed doors. All of this leads to Daisy staying with Tom and being the submissive wife character he needs. But then she falls in love with Gatsby again and begins to really experience life. Daisy says “It make me sad because I’ve never seen such- such beautiful shirts before.” (92). Daisy isn’t just crying about shirts she is crying about a way of life she has never experienced with Tom but just within the few hours she’s been with Gatsby.
In their first and only conversation at Harvard, Janet attempts to establish a connection between them as women professors, who face the same judgments and unreasonable demands; she complains about being mistaken for a lesbian after being found in the bathroom with Luellen May, replicating misogynist sentiments when she admits to thinking that “those women in overalls and boots are horrible” (49). Janet herself did not dare to defy social conventions or her family's expectations, which are revealed to Kate by Janet's brother Bill. He claims that Janet would not have killed herself had she been content with the “life of a normal woman” (145), had had children and given up her work. At the same time, he recognized that “Janet wasn't made for marriage” (146), a sentiment he shares with Moon, who tells Kate about how much Janet struggled to embrace traditional femininity, wanting to be 'ladylike' but being too smart to not be opinionated (130). This can be read as an indication that Janet is by nature more androgynous than she would like to be; being a wife did not come easy to her, and in the end the marriage did not

This desire then leads her to become a devout Christian. She leaves behind her husband and fourteen children to transform herself. She begs her husband to release her as if she never truly wanted to be with him. The quotes that are used are good examples to help the reader understand how “Margery Kempe” is as a spiritual autobiography as well as the strong bond between her and
This realization causes her to start making changes within herself. One of these changes included finding a new sense of confidence that allows her to take a stand against her husband. ‘”Are you coming in Léonce?” she asked turning her face toward her husband.’ (Chopin, 35) Although she made such a change, Edna did not realize she was not strong enough to completely go against society and her husband. Edna is also growing tired of having to fight against society and others that are trying to take advantage of her. According to the novel, in chapter twenty-six, Alcée Arobin, one of Edna’s love affairs, starts to take advantage of her when she is too tired to fight him off and stand up for herself.
An example of how this extended beyond casual inquiry lies in the helping hands of my closest relative, Aunt Marzipan , who reached out to me on multiple occasions to offer a set-up date with friends’ children. When I denied the ‘help’, she repeatedly elucidated that I could always come out to her (as gay) and she would love me no matter what. Perhaps that was exactly what someone who was gay needed, however, I am not gay, and subsequently, being constantly barraged by friends and family inquiring about my gayness and offering their support, likely despite their best intentions, destroyed my self-image and severely impacted my self-conscious. I choose not to oust myself as asexual for I am a firm believer that refraining from sex is no different from refraining from eating carbs- the only problem being that the former can also be a sign of mental illness, suppression, and other negative states that may require help to overcome. To have my orientation
They had two children together, however there were complications with their first-born. “Soon after her marriage to Charles Stetson and the birth of her daughter, she fell into a deeply depressed condition and consulted Dr. S. Weir Mitchell who in turn prescribed his famous rest cure. It is her experience with Mitchell’s treatment that inspired her to write “The Yellow Wallpaper” (On Feminism and The Yellow Wallpaper). Gilman was able to insert her own ideas on feminism into her story based on her real life experiences. The exception being the relationship with her husband, John.
An accusation she denies because she really loved him even if he didnt love her. Another example is that through this entire movie which took place around the 1970s-1980s the only thing Baby's sister wants is to find a husband at the time this was normal for many women, but this almost gets her in trouble as she wants to give her virginity away to the same boy who left Penny thankfully she finds out how he really is and leaves him. This works with both sex and gender. The last sociological concept is deviance Baby deviated from her family to find herself and be with Johnny she discards her shy, and timid appearance to become someone who can dance with joy and speak her mind about what she wants to her father. Johnny deviates from his friends not listening to Penny's advice to stay away from Baby so that he will not get hurt he doesn't listen and it gets him in trouble.
The short story has expressed the theme through a character’s first exprience of sexuality. “I never knew this would be so embarrassing! I can’t watch them anymore so I turn around to Brad who still is”(page 4). Deidre feels very embarrassed by watching her dad having conversation with Rita. Even though she thought she is mature, she gets the sense that she is yet imature since it is her first time exploring sexuality.
When stating “I would never have asked to be HIV positive, but I believe that in all things there is a purpose; and I stand before you and before the nation gladly.” (2) she shows how strong she is for allowing her story to be heard and exploited, as well as to encourage others to do the same. A metaphor that really ties this whole speech together and allows multiple emotions from sorrow to empathetic is evoked when she is saying, “I am one with the lonely gay man sheltering a flickering candle from the cold wind of his family’s rejection.” (4). Fisher sets the stereotypical recipient of HIV up and relates them to herself to show that she is one with being isolated by her
