Men are dominant over women, especially in the case of Tom, who constantly emphasizes his physical strength in order to subdue them. The only hint of a role reversal is in the pair of Nick and Jordan. Jordan 's unisex name and laid back style masculinize her more than any other predominant female character. However, in the end, Nick does exercise his dominance over her by calling an end to the relationship.

People of all ages will be intrigued by the story of former Gold-medallist, turned reality star, turned face of the transgender community. The older generation who watched and rooted Bruce on to win the Gold back in 76’ as well as our newer generation who may have only known him as Kim Kardashian’s step-father.

Intersectionality is the idea that when certain group identities that have similar systems of oppression merge together, they form a group that is fundamentally different as a whole than from their respective groups. In the case of the Mexicans and the Filipinos and their involvement in the “United Farm Workers of America”, it proved to hinder the alliance that the two groups had with each other. Because of their differences in race and the language barrier, there was a divide that had formed between the two groups; the Mexicans were more favored in the union.
