One strong emotional reaction is when Aibileen always mentions something about her past like with her ex-husband, Clyde and her deceased son, Treelore. It’s sad when you keep on remembering your loved ones dying and leaving you. Another strong emotion I had was when every time the maids were discriminated against.

Berry, in the Feminism, the Body, and the Machine, makes an argument about what he believes the feminist, who are against his paper about not needing a computer, are missing when they discuss marriage: “marriage as a state of mutual help, and the household as an economy.” I agree. In his article about the computer, Berry mentioned that his wife helped him to type up his ideas and gave him feedback, which frustrates feminist because they find this act to be exploitation without knowing all the details. Within all of their complaints, Berry noticed that all the feminists were frustrated that his wife was not being exploited, was not allowed to find her own employment outside of the home, and was being subservient to him. There did not understand the state of mutual help within a marriage. Berry also explains that many feminists nowadays dream of a marriage that looks more like “an intimate ‘relationship’ involving (ideally) two successful careerists in the same bed, and on the other hand a sort of private political system in which rights and interests must be constantly asserted and defended.” The household is not a full economy, it is focused on consumption.

You literally show up once a year and still carry the nerve to talk about someone you barely even know?
