They felt they would only hurt more people by saying they were married. Act 2 scene 2 line 70 “If they see you they’ll murder you”. This shows that they were so scared that they fought so much so they kept it a secret so the other would not be killed. This shows they unleashed their demise because their parents inspired this fear. This reminds me a lot of when I had done things for my father because I was scared of him making me scared to do anything.
Medea surpassed the regulations by murdering her family and the ones with higher status. Jason degraded his status by not being able to obey the regulations that were placed on him. He was unsuccessful in taking care of his family and understanding his wife and children. It is extremely shocking and unforgivable if a woman took revenge on her husband through murder in a society where women were always looked down upon. But the whole society overlooked Jason’s actions of betraying his own family and blood in secrecy.

Till one day, the father showed up at the grandmother’s house. That moment she saw him from the window in order not be recognized by the mother.
Rogers, I had no doubt, had acted very largely under the influence of her husband.¨(Christie, 243) With this we can tell that not only did Thomas kill an old lady for money but forced his wife, most likely threatened her or even blackmailed her, to do the dirty work. Thomas did two awful things, two illegal things, two things that need justice to be served. Emily Brent, another character that some believe deserves to be on the island and justice should be served. Emily Brent was taking care of a young girl who got pregnant before marriage, which is against what Emily believes in so she kicked her out of her home, which then the young girl drowned herself. This is an awful situation, but Emily did not plan on having the girl kill herself, she didn't plan on it at all like Thomas did.
He had his men divide the women equally and told them to share them all. Odysseus stayed on an island with the time distorting goddess Calypso who loved Odysseus a lot and didn’t want him to leave so he decided to stay instead of going home he stayed there until he wanted to go back home. “I stormed the place and killed the men who fought. Plunder we took, and we took, and we enslaved the women, to make division, equal shares to all.” I think that Odysseus does not deserve to be a literary hero because he has done so many bad things to so many people that didn’t deserve to be hurt or killed.
He cheats on Cleofilas and always complains to her. “He slapped her once, and then again, and again; until the lip split and bled an orchid of blood (Cisneros).” Cleofilas lets this abusive behavior keep up until she gets examined by a doctor and is offered to be taken back to Mexico by a woman named Felice. She owns her own truck and this makes Cleofilas astonished that a woman can afford one by herself.

As she explained to me my father sexually assaulted her and was currently locked up for murder. Searching the internet for more information on this man, more and more disturbing news pops up.

She looks around with a swivel of her huge head. Nobody up to see, just old Broom Bromden the half-breed Indian back there hiding behind his mop and can’t talk to call for help.

When the racial tension that develops throughout the narrative finally erupts [in a sequence beginning at 1:29:04], Tina is unsurprisingly absent, attesting hooks’ summation that “the presence of black women in the film take the heat off and replace it with erotic play”. Nevertheless, though outnumbered by ten men, a secondary female character, Ella (Christa Rivers), is present at Sal’s as the conflict unfolds. Until this point, Ella serves a deindividuated roll as a member of a collective featuring Cee (Martin Lawrence), Punchy (Leonard Thomas) and Ahmad (Steve White) that sees her repeatedly belittle. Lacking the autonomy to challenge the behaviour of her peers, Ella thus shares in their actions and mannerisms upon entry to Sal’s, particularly by castigating Mookie for his refusal to allow them into the building [1:29:17].
