Beside the jealousy, there is another factor that is also psychological and based on gender study. Gender relations are pretty antagonistic in Othello. Unmarried women are regarded as their fathers ' property and the play 's two marriages are marked by male jealousy and cruelty. It means both wives are murdered by their own husbands. Most male characters in Othello assume that all Venetian women are inherently promiscuous, which explains why female sexuality is a huge threat to men in the play.
Allie and kids symbolize the “catching”.The cliff symbolizes adulthood .Holden believes that adults are all phonies (which is hypocritical of him because even Though Holden constantly talks about other people being phony he is himself often phony. At various times in the novel, he tells pointless lies, claims to like or agree with things he hates, goes out with girls he doesn 't like, all to try to feel less lonely and left out).In chapter 17 Holden says “Then, just to show you how crazy I am, when we were coming out of this big clinch, I told her I loved her and all. It was a lie, of course, but the thing is, I meant it when I said it. I 'm crazy. I swear to God I am”.
She compares present day males ages 18-34 to children who refuse to grow up. This demographic is then compared to males between the same ages during the year 1965, almost fifty years past. She goes on to describe the present day SYMs as underachievers who prolong the agony of the women in waiting. She describes these males as having their “big life priorities” in order such as jobs, homes and financial security yet lack the desire to settle down with women who have grown tired of being used for their sexual desires without the commitment. According to Hymowitz, the majority of blame rests with the media for creating these childlike males through the creation and mass distribution of adolescent type literature, movies, TV shows and video games.
Notwithstanding, he has had controversy with almost everyone on the ranch. He abused Lennie, a mentally disabled man, he publicly exposes his and his wife’s sexual lives, and he treats his wife as if she is his slave. Moreover, the actions Curley has done are corrupt, but they are not solely because he is an abominable person. An infrequent amount of readers will look at Curley’s actions and have sympathy for him, but Curley has reasons for his mistakes. Nevertheless, Curley is a disastrous man due to the way he grew up being an only child, he is astoundingly short, his father is a wealthy ranch owner, and he grew up in a racist and sexist community.
Mayella is powerless because of her gender. In the trial, it’s revealed that Mayella is physically, verbally, and sexually abused by her father. Because Mayella can often be intimidated by her father, as a result of her gender, she wasn’t able to stand up to him, and his abusive characteristics towards her. During that trial, Mr. Ewell intimidates Mayella by leaning forwards in his chair when she tries to tell the truth about how her father treats her (Doc B). It’s very clear that he wouldn’t be able to physically
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
Celie's father (Pa), is not only verbally abusive, but also physically abusive, “He beat me for dressing trampy but he do it to me anyway.” (6). Pa beat Celie for the way that she dressed, but he also beat her for no reason at all. During this time in history, it was very common to beat your children or your wife, even though it was made illegal in 1920. Physical abuse is seen throughout the novel and is inflicted on Celie by both her father and husband Mr._____. In 2018, physical abuse is “hidden”, but it is present in such large numbers especially in children, “Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect… Every year more than 3.6 million referrals are made to child protection agencies…” (childhelp).

Women in The Great Gatsby are objectified by men, seen as only having value when of use to a man, as well as the universe punishes them when they do not obey a man. The women introduced as sex objects and men are introduced through their achievements and how great their minds are. “Daisy was my second cousin once removed...her husband, among various
Whitman’s poem states: “I will scatter myself among men and women as I go, / I will toss a new gladness and roughness among them…” and “Now if a thousand perfect men were to appear it would not amaze me, / Now if a thousand beautiful forms of women appear’d it would not astonish me.”, which describes open Dean’s sexuality with men and women who he meets on the road. His temperament is what also differs from the other characters; Dean cheats on his wife multiple times, he’s a constant nomad who is unable to settle in one place or with one woman. In Mortenson’s article “Beating Time: Configurations of Temporality in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road”, he describes, “Dean is frenetically living in the moment, trying to stay within the ever-unfolding horizon of the ‘now’....Dean accepts the belief that life must be lived in the present and practices this knowledge by filling each of these moments with as much activity as possible…” (p. 56). Although Dean’s perception of life is to live on the edge, nomadic and ever changing, he has no regard for the feelings of others.
