They feel as if they have to be very careful of what they say because there might be a chance that he will hurt them. In conclusion Okonkwo overall is an unsympathetic person, However at time he could be sympathetic. He showed his sympathy by providing for his family and Ikemefuna. Okonkwo showed that he was unsympathetic by having no patience and beating his wives and
Once a family’s reputation is affected, it affects how they interact with their families. This makes it difficult to leave an abusive environment because the culture is not accepting of anything different from what they consider is normal. Hmong are not familiar with the progressive concepts of divorce. In the Hmong culture, it’s always the woman’s fault. Since men hold superior positions in the household, it holds a strong meaning, suggesting that they have a say in what is best for the household.
But much to the anguish of Okonkwo, Nwoye embodied most of his grandfather’s traits and this enraged Okonkwo deeply. Okonkwo dreads that Nwoye will blot the acclaim and honour he has worked so hard to achieve. Nwoye’s “incipient laziness” was causing Okonkwo great deal of distress and he sought to correct him by “constant nagging and beating” and as a result Nwoye was “turning into a sad-faced youth” (Pg. 13). Nwoye is aware that he should adopt the more masculine traits of his tribesmen, as desired by his father but he still prefers his mother’s company.
“ Why are we always being harassed.”( Rodriguez 95) This shows that Luis and Carlitos were being harassed by the police. This gives an example that being disrespected and harassed to those who aren’t native is common. Luis already seeming defeated while Carlitos seemed to be questioning how society is treating him. Racism in Luis’s life experiences has always been a big part of his life others hating him, judged by the teachers not letting them experience his own culpability, and the cops pointing and labeling him as a threat. He’s constantly judged by everyone around him that think they're superior to him and others always view him the way the chose too.
It explains that harsh reality that life is not bliss and other people work against you all the time, even those you love. Everyone knows what it feels like to fear what others may think of you, to fear the judgment. It is more difficult if the fear is from someone who one should be able to trust. “Fearing the chronic angers” (41), that judgment brings and fuels society. Along with the judgment, society begins to treat others different for having those fears.
So can society function without respect? Society cannot function without respect because of the people and them feeling so bad about them self that they have to disrespect someone else to feel better about them self. For this reason, society cannot function without respect in the world. This would make the world fall to pieces the world can’t function without respect not just the community or household or
It did not work that way for the women. Women were not given the luxury of feeling comfortable saying what they wished without getting scolded by their husbands. Ma somewhat followed that set role, but she also got frustrated sometimes and could not help but say what she really felt. Other than the men and women being given certain roles, everyone everywhere solely wished for happiness. The Grapes of Wrath portrays how men and women handle difficult situations differently.
Life isn’t fair and even though we may very well be a best kind of human being, people will still find a reason to hate you no matter what you do or how good you are. Probabilities are it’s more about their concern than anything you have or haven’t done. There are people who don’t like me who have never actually met me or had a conversation with me. That’s fine with me. I won’t invest emotional energy into things I can’t change.
The inequality of genders is further developed when it is determined that many of Esther's problems stem from her conflicting views of “[hating] the idea of serving men in any way” (Plath 14). Esther’s discomfort of serving men and having to remain subordinate to them demonstrates her inability to conform to what is traditionally expected of her. However as a female in a male controlled society there is not much she can do or say without receiving discrimination from the dominate sex. As well, the concept of female sexuality and its relativity to virginity also furthers the presence of gender inequality. The expression of love or passion is obsolete
When a woman takes charge of a conversation, she is of tenacious substance. When a man doesn 't take charge of a conversation, he is but a coward. The male gender is commonly known to be less verbal aggressive due to their physical strength. Our community believes if something does not go a man 's way, we are obliged to use our bodily strength against the opposing force. This assumption leaves society to believe that us men will rape, thrash and hurt if anything goes wrong, it leaves society to believe we would rather beat a person up than converse through the situation, it leaves society to believe we don 't have enough intellect to talk this out so physical abuse would be our way out; this assumption leaves the male gender synonymous to that of a wild animal.
