Further, Lady Macbeth would “dashed the brains out” of “the babe that milks me”. The violence and harm she would do to her child causes alarm and adds to her villinous character. This is contrasted with Lady Macduff’s gentle and carring tone she has with her son in Act 4 Scene 2 when she calls him “monkey”. Pet names show closeness and affection which clearly would lack from Lady Macbeth and her child, as she would kill it if she promised to. Therefore, the women’s supernatural and distrubing characteristics are demonstrated through their ambiguity or desire to rid themselves of feminine
When walking in the girl's section at Target there is no doubt that the theme is pink. It shows the main focus is for girls to love the color and supposed to be more feminine.

It is nearly impossible for a tale to be passed down generations and still stay the same. The fairy tale “Cinderella” told by the Grimm brothers is almost 206 years old, and differences can be seen between the modern “Cinderella” story and the original. In “Cinderella,” by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, a young girl named Cinderella is treated like a servant by her family. Luckily she is gifted with beautiful clothing, enabling her to attend a festival, meeting her one true love. Cinderella gets married to the prince, and the step-sisters are punished by getting pecked in the eyes by birds.
The Wicked Witch of the West sees them coming and sends out wolves, crows, bees and monkeys to destroy them. The Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman were broken into pieces. Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion were captured and taken to her palace. Dorothy was to be a slave in the palace.

Through this Stevenson posits that if one hides one’s authentic self it will lead to a double life that will cause one’s life to end in destruction. To begin, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde provides information on Dr. Jekyll’s sexuality. Stevenson’s novel focused on the “cheval glass”, since it represented a feminine object (42). Others wondered what “Jekyll [would] want with it” since it was as noted before a feminine object (Stevenson 42).

In the closer tree, three half-bird, half-woman creatures called Harpies peck at the tree-souls branches and clearly cause it discomfort. Dante and Virgil are also told that when a soul is cast to this forest, it starts as a sapling and is abused by the Harpies. This could be the reason why the roots of the trees shown are so deformed. The last detail Dante and Virgil hear is how the former bodies of the tree-souls are later hung on their branches and left for them to see the body that they once abandoned. Having text to accompany this illustration helps your mind paint a picture of old, gnarled, oak trees with blood coming out of the branches.

Both published poems which unconventionally addressed romantic love and challenged the usual perception of women in romantic relationships. In Whitney’s “To her unconstant Lover,” Whitney addresses unrequited love in a manner that is more mature than that of many contemporary poets, and eventually reconciles herself with the idea of not being able to be her beloved’s loyal lover.
