Men get alarmed in regards to what they wear, eat, and how they walk. Homophobia is the fear of being looked at as being gay or in our words feminine.

Soseki generally uses references to the theme of the expectation of sharing time and space to highlight how a number individuals in differing situation dealt with dilemmas, which represented the darkness in their lives. These two men are the closest thing to having a mentor and mentee bond also as an older brother but this is slightly strained by Sensei’s reserve. Sensei was not very fond of sharing any past experiences that have impacted him in his past, since they truly struck him negatively. Thus, it is not only pertaining to his reserve that hinders their friendship, it is the fact that the men feel there are two sides to a person rather than bonding together to work towards a common goal. In order to see this contrast between the expectation of sharing time and space, Soseki again uses the light and darkness motif when the narrator, says, “I have come to doubt everybody… I did not want to doubt you.”
Scott Fitzgerald explains how he doesn’t believe that our elders are so much more knowledgeable than us and how marriage sours quickly (He really gets into many different topics). Elders were more than willing to share experiences with younger people but they really don’t want to hear a reaction to their experience. Fitzgerald explains how “They always talk about their experiences but they go on making the same mistakes at 50” (5). A perfect example of this is Troy in Fences. Troy probably left his family in shambles due to his stint in prison but he worked hard to obtained stable job after he finished his sentence.

Reuven is very annoyed that Reb Saunders is not allowing his son to talk to him. He really misses Danny. Being forced to be in the same room with Danny, but not being allowed to talk to him, makes Reuven very frustrated. The silence is ugly, because it forces Danny and Reuven to be near each other and think bad things about each other, but it doesn’t allow them to talk. Because Reuven and Danny can’t talk, Reuven can’t be 100% convinced that Danny’s feelings about their friendship hadn’t changed.
