The government’s lack of interest in the help of the people suffering in the film creates a link to the issue of big companies and their addiction to profit putting money before others. In both films as mentioned earlier strongly touch on the realism of sexism during the times that the works are based on through protagonists and supporting protagonists. Alan in The Imitation Game is limited to what he can be at the ending of the film due to his homosexuality, and ends up taking his life because of the scrutiny he faces. As a relation to present times it urges people to be more accepting of the LGBT community. In both films the rise against government is a strong thematic device to make relations to the viewers world.
During Jazz Age people’s spiritual values, traditions and customs were decaying. Lust had took over them and they could easily betray their spouses, just like Myrtle, Daisy and Tom in Great Gatsby. As myrtle’s sister had mentioned to Nick “neither of them can stand the person they’re married to” (p. 23). She proposed that if no one is happy in their marriage they should get divorce and get into a relationship that would satisfy them, because “you can’t live forever, you can’t live forever” (p. 24). Myrtle also suggested that morality has been long dead inside men and they “will cheat you every time.
The Wolf of Wall Street is a novel based on the real life of Jordan Belfort. The novel is written from a male perspective and is full of stereotypes, women in the book are completely objectified, none of the female characters are given any depth and are only described only through their physical appearance. They are merely sex objects for Belfort’s enjoyment. Belfort leaves his first wife for a better looking woman showing how they are just trophies to him and when Belfort’s wife leaves him after he loses his money she is seen in a negative light and as a gold digger even though Belfort abused and cheated on her. I would argue that The wolf of wall street should be included on the grounds that it actually negatively portrays the stereotypes themselves, at the end of the novel Belfort is washed up and degraded so therefore all his actions including his ill treatment of women is shown as a bad
Multiple harsh scenarios give a detailed outline on how Blanche can ruin a character 's self esteem without doing much harm to her own. Blanche buries her own personal flaws by attention seeking , flirtatious behavior, lying and drinking. “Blanches most fundamental regret as we see her in new orleans, is not that she happened to marry a homosexual… Blanche’s concern that, when made aware of her husband 's sexuality she brought on the boys suicide” (Berkman 252) When Blanche judges somebody else it take weight off her shoulders from her own life struggles.

Tom is seen to be a very racist person, and that is just from what he said about one book. Tom does not care about women either, he is a sexist person who only cares about himself. He broke Myrtle’s nose just because she kept saying Daisy’s name even though he told her to stop. More proof of Tom’s sexism comes from his affair with Myrtle. If Tom cared about Daisy he would not be seeing other women, it was also revealed that Myrtle was not the first person Tom had an affair with, which just proves this even further.
They believed that since homosexuality was a “mental illness” it was perceived to be a “security risk” to the nation as those who conduct “overt acts of pervasion” lacked “emotional stability of normal people”. And because nobody stood up to this offensive and totally absurd idea of homosexuals, more than 4,380 gay men and women had been discharged from the military and around 500 fired from their jobs with the government. And this was even before President Eisenhower issued the Executive Order banning gay men and lesbians from working for any agency of the federal government. Thousands of working men and women were not allowed jobs or fired from their current positions. The discriminatory employment practices have further removed over 5000 gays from federal services and ignited what had recently been called the “lavender scare”.

Following their sexual encounter, David begins to ruthlessly bully Joey, “When school began again I picked up with a rougher, older crowd and was very nasty to Joey. And the sadder this made him, the nastier I became. He moved away at last” (Baldwin 10). To David, Joey is a walking symbol of his homosexuality. David makes the subconscious decision to bully Joey since in 1952, when Giovanni’s Room was published, you could not have homosexual relationships and still retain a sense of immaculate manhood.
