Whitman’s poem states: “I will scatter myself among men and women as I go, / I will toss a new gladness and roughness among them…” and “Now if a thousand perfect men were to appear it would not amaze me, / Now if a thousand beautiful forms of women appear’d it would not astonish me.”, which describes open Dean’s sexuality with men and women who he meets on the road.

Shaw crafts these nasty words to display how many men felt during the time period of a woman who chose to go out and make a life for herself.
