Although there is almost no chance for her to ever see either of them again, she still tries to preseve the relationship. She is used by Commander for sex and companionship and had an affair with Nick (higher preganancy chance). Most of her actions are being forced “Which of us is it worse for, her or me?”(151) meant the sex between the narrator and commander is unbearable to the point of watching your husband having sex with another women right infront of you. Her only defiance done totally by herself is “I will use the butter later that night.” (113), everything else including escaping the Gilead, having an affair with Commander, having an affair with Nick and leaving the Commanders house are all stimulated by others. Offred represent those who does not stand against oppresion, being pushed around and used for sex.
However, Nurse Ratched’s sudden distaste for McMurphy didn;t always directly happen to him. Previous to his arrival, Nurse Ratched would scold and lecture patients acting out of line, but after the discovery of the ward party, Nurse Ratched grills into Billy Bibbit about sleeping with a prostitute and then comforts the frantic Billy, the whole time Chief describes she “glares at us as she spoke.” (272). This action, intended to draw guilt in McMurphy, exemplifies Nurse Ratched’s poor judgement choice since McMurphy’s arrival. The Nurse Ratched pre-McMurphy would’ve appropriately taken care of the Billy issue, but now upset and angry at McMurphy for the party he’s thrown, her judgement is impaired by trying to make McMurphy feel guilty, which ultimately leads to Billy’s suicide. In general, McMurphy’s arrival and antics played a very negative role in Nurse Ratched’s mental health, which can be seen declining throughout the

The cause of her feeling lonely is most likely because Curley is controlling over her.

Unfortunately, when she asks the men if they've seen her husband she acts flirtatiously, which gives them the wrong impression. "She put her hands behind her back and [leans] against the door frame so that her body [is] thrown forward" (31). All she really wants is to talk with somebody, not do anything unfaithful to her husband. Her second sign of loneliness is when she angrily lashes
Don’t you think?’” (Fitzgerald, 20). Tom got a call from some women at dinner time, and Jordan claims it to be Tom’s mistress, therefore, suggesting that Tom is committing adultery. You learn throughout the novel that Tom and Daisy relationship is not the most ideal, happy relationship.

This is opposite of social norms in the nineteenth century because a woman having sexual desires was not natural, and she must be coerced into sexual acts by a man. Chopin writes a story where Calixta’s sexual desire builds without her really noticing it because a women having sexual desires is natural. Calixta is described as “greatly occupied and [does] not notice the approaching storm” (154). Calixta puts her needs and wants to the side to take care of her husband and son, but now she needs to do something for herself. In the late-nineteenth-century, women were thought to be happy with whatever their man could give them, Calixta wants more.
Antigone is put at a disposition at the beginning of the work as she is a woman trying to voice her opinion in a time where men were only heard. Some may attribute her lack of voicing to her arrogant attitude, possibly rightly so, developed from the sequence of events in the work. Antigone felt entitled to bury her brother; she felt entitled that her voice be heard. She went against Creon’s command and tried to bury her brother. Antigone scorns Creon at the beginning of the play during questioning by back-talking and arrogantly answering Creon.
The relationship between Iago and Emilia can be seen when Iago discusses with Cassio that if Emilia gave her “lips” (2.1.100) as much as her “tongue” (2.1.101) he would have enough of her. The lips depicts the intimate aspects of a relationship such as kissing, Iago suggests that their relationship lacks intimacy. Tongues help us speak and form sounds, therefore through the mention of the tongue I infer that the couple bickers and argues more often than show affection towards each other. Iago is sexually and emotionally detached from Emilia. When people are dissatisfied with their relationship they seek sexual or emotional support outside of their relationship, thus causing him to seek a romantic relationship with a male counterpart.
Max sees women as sexual beings and nothing else unless they spike certain interest in him. When reminiscing on the women he slept with in the past, he makes crude comments about their bodies. “There were a few tough hairs on (Fredericka’s) breasts that made love making somewhat uneasy. And that thing, that ugly, dangling, crippled labia; it felt like taking hold of a piece of warm chitlin (Williams 175).” Fredericka, like the other women Max has slept with, has put herself in a vulnerable position by allowing Max to see her
