From what the writer tells us we are able to see that the mom is aware of the affair but maybe she is too scare to say anything fearing that it would destroy their
However, Fitzgerald also shows how they still depend on men, no matter how emancipated they seem to be. Therefore, the question whether or not women were truly dependent on men, is raised. In many opportunities Fitzgerald shows the reader women were independent. One can easily see this in the parties at Gatsby’s place. During the parties there was a “great number of single girls dancing individualistically”.
In the beginning, Conrad is hesitant to call Dr. Berger and when he finally does, he does not want to leave the doctor his number. This is a way of avoiding his problems. Another example is when he goes to see the doctor and Conrad will not tell him anything about what is wrong. Again he is avoiding talking about his feelings and emotions. One example of Conrad showing “violence” is when he barked at his mother to avoid the

The request of his father was abnormal to him. He had to actually think about what was suppose to be done, somewhat postponing the request. He constantly thought about his reputation and how he was viewed by the people. He even went out of his way to make his friends overlook his actions. "Never make known what you have seen to-night."
This upset Okonkwo who lashed out causing Nwoye to leave and never come back. In the novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Nwoye was able to stand up to his father as a result of two religions colliding. Although they were father and son, Okonkwo and Nwoye were never very close because of how different they were. “Nwoye knew that it was right to be masculine and to be violent, but somehow he still preferred the stories that his mother used to tell…” (Achebe 53). This shows that even though Nwoye didn’t share the same
He had fled the claustrophobic confines of his family. He’d successfully kept Jan Burres and Wayne Westerberg at arm’s length, flitting out of their lives before anything was expected of him. And now he’d slipped painlessly out of Ron Franz’s life as well,” every time someone tried to become close to him, he pushed him or her away. When Ronald Franz asked to adopt him, Chris told him that they would talk about it when he returns from Alaska. Chris’ problems with his father affected his ability to form new, close relationships, and ultimately sent him to his death.
It is true that Krakauer mentions his own viewpoint of McCandless, but people can still have different opinions on him. For example, in chapter eight people have made up their opinions on McCandless base on reading the Outside article. They said he was “forsaken a loving family,” unprepared, not wise on going to Alaska, and was preparing to die (Krakauer 74). However, that point is not true because it was based on what they read from the article. By reading the article they only know the exterior of him and not know the reason why he went to Alaska.
Benjamin struggles with issues, such as how he was supposed to assert his manliness in a society that is no longer the “man goes to work, woman serves man” theory. But his parents were still living in a more traditional world and did not understand that the world is changing. As a result, he was mostly confused and was constantly pulled in two directions. A side towards the understanding of his father theory of manhood and on the other hand the need to seek his true identity in a world that his parents would never understand. This film successfully addresses this dissatisfaction of gender relating issues and the youthful alienation that was happening at the point of time in America.
