She compares present day males ages 18-34 to children who refuse to grow up. This demographic is then compared to males between the same ages during the year 1965, almost fifty years past. She goes on to describe the present day SYMs as underachievers who prolong the agony of the women in waiting. She describes these males as having their “big life priorities” in order such as jobs, homes and financial security yet lack the desire to settle down with women who have grown tired of being used for their sexual desires without the commitment. According to Hymowitz, the majority of blame rests with the media for creating these childlike males through the creation and mass distribution of adolescent type literature, movies, TV shows and video games.
For instance, the Ranee controls the Rajah despite him being the ruler of the land.

There are many differences in the way others view and treat men and women. For example, some believe that men are superior to women, and women are incapable of performing certain tasks.

Her father wants her to marry one man while she wants to marry another and threatens to have her killed if she does not marry the man of his choice.

This displays the fear that the author had for his father. When reflecting over the poem, John J. Mckenna stated, “The author replaced the rather benign ‘kept’ with ‘beat’ thus making the situation more ominous, more negative” Roethke’s father worked manual labor and had a strong physique.

Another change Roethke made to the poem was the gender of the child.
Othello simply ignores Iago’s warning; he must choose between trusting his wife or Iago. Ultimately, Othello’s soldierly pride is greater than his love for Desdemona and he unconsciously craves information to feed his jealousy (“Othello” Shakespeare for Students 433). Jealousy destroys Othello’s state of mind. Othello is mentally weak because he does not trust his wife; therefore, when Iago destroys his trust in Desdemona, jealousy begins to infect his mind. Othello is ultimately placed between an angel and a devil who both demand his loyalty (“Othello.” William Shakespeare , Shakespeare A-Z 471).

More of a lover boy than a ladies man--just simply for the fact he didn 't think he was that handsome. Jay-Roc deemed himself a reject possibly from some wicked place and would have to always fight to fit in with society.

The thought being stuck with a baby face for life would always have its advantages and disadvantages. Born into society as a loner, he hated it at that age when people would mention how old they thought he really was, making him at times feel like having it out for the person for even speaking on it.
One obstacle is gender equality, the ranch is a “male-dominant” society where women are seen as untrustworthy. The fact that Curly’s wife is the bosses wife is the true cause of her alienation. However, the simple fact that she is a female separates her from interactions with others as seen when the men refer to her as having “the eye” (28). Here the men refer to everything they think women are – a distraction and temptation for men, instead of actual human beings. Candy is also oppressed in a social inequality as he is afraid that when he is too old to work, he will be thrown out of the “ash heap”, a victim of a society that discriminates against the disabled and has no value for age or experience.
