Holden is a caring character, as seen through his great liking of Robert Burn’s poem, “Comin thro’ the Rye”. Holden tells Phoebe that he wants to “catch everybody if they start going off the cliff” (173). Holden wants to be a savior of innocence for children, as he wants to protect them from the ugliness of the world. This is exemplified by his anger towards vulgarity written in the school walls. He states that he could imagine how, “…some dirty kid would tell them-all cockeyed, naturally, what it meant, and how they’d all think about it and maybe even worry about it for a couple of days.” (201).

These new developments and changes in gender roles have aided in the fight to have gender inequality and discrimination discontinued both in society and the workplace. In order to rid ourselves of the issue of gender roles and inequality, we need to redefine our gender roles. When raising children, ensure that they have the freedom of choice as to the gender role they want to play. For example, do not ban girls from football or becoming officers or soldiers. Also, culture our young men to know that masculinity isn’t exhibited by roughness of treating a woman or roughness of intercourse.
The education then fully reflects this image. Since their young age, men are asked to play sports, explore outside, and act aggressively, so that they meet the requirement as “physically tuff”.
