Furthermore, in the movie, Viola was talking to her brother Sebastian about his band and her soccer and he said, “You know the percentage of bands that make it to the big time, probably the same as female soccer players” (Fickman, Andy, 2006). Instead of lifting his sister up after learning about her soccer team being cut, he negatively talked about females and their success in sports. This is degrading because he is shutting down Viola and her dreams.

Demetrius betrayed Helena and then betrayed Hermia by wanting Helena again. Lysander loves Hermia, after he’s drugged with the potion he fell in love with Helena. When the antidote is applied he immediately returns to loving Hermia again. Oberon is yet another example of how young love of men isn’t reliable or consistent.
