However, Nyasha is appalled at the idea of gaining too much weight due to factors surrounding her femininity and expected role at the time.

Some of the quotes that people ignore her with, include, “(...) Rushing around in that skimpy infantile brown dress lookin like a refugee off a junk from the mainland,” (Yen Mah 170). Also, “I suppose she hates chocolates and mangoes too; that’s why no one on Sunday comes to bring her any goodies at all,” (Yen Mah 164). These are just a few quotes that show how Adeline does get made fun of, and is bullied by cruel people. Although this does happen, Adeline ignores most of these cruel comments, and continues to make her path to where she is now. Inspiration is the word I would use to show how I felt when reading Chinese Cinderella.
Mikasa isn 't jealous. She doesn 't do jealous. She just doesn 't like Annie, that 's all. Never had; never will, Mikasa decides, taking a long, contemplating sip of her Pepsi as she watches Annie giggle a little too hard at one of Eren 's jokes—most likely the one about Sarah falling off of the swing, followed by the whole knock-knock joke that once made Mikasa laugh so hard she cried. She tries not to gag as she watches Annie tuck a strand of blonde behind her ear, a flirtatious smile pulling the corners of her lips upwards.

This idea of female freedom, however, is not embraced by the male characters, who feel it threatens their masculinity: “It was they who were embarrassing us” (4). When Lengel, the “kingpin” of the A&P takes notice of the girls’ actions, he quickly steps up to protect his masculinity. In removing the girls from the A&P, he is attempting to put them back in their established place. As one critic noted, the male characters feel that “Either women were to stay in one place and allow themselves to be walked on as ‘houseslaves’ or mothers or they were to provide their sexual services when men so desired” (Douglass).

I was too young to fully comprehend and appreciate the effort my mother went to in taking care of me, when she was scared as well. The emotional aspect of taking care of a type one diabetic child was sadly not a consideration.
Mary attempts to conform to society 's expectations of a woman, but fails in doing so. She reads books vigorously, but will not be able to think deeply about its meaning--she simply regurgitates facts without analyzing them. She strives to be what society expects of her, but it results in complete loss of personality on her part. Kitty is described as being flirtatious and gossipy, sometimes to an irritating point.
