And so, she turns to other men, even subtly asks Jake to set her up with another man. This carefree sexuality completely undermines Brett and Jake’s love, and makes Jake completely miserable.

Many other commercials feature women that can't resist a man wearing an axe product. Available via.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myxGr1uuGiw .This commercials not only cheapen women but it presents the inaccurate information, that all women have an inner beast awaiting to leash out. This ad consists of gender stereotypes and portrays both women and men as sexually appealing being. Young men, like women, frequently suffer from poor self-esteem, lack of confidence and this ad has exploit that. I think it’s also an insult to men.
Salinger was also born in New York to upper-class parents. It seems as though Holden Caulfield's childhood is an identical match to that of J.D. Salinger's. Salinger had a deep love and fascination with young children, especially young women. In the 1970s, Salinger maintained a close connection with an eighteen year-old girl, Joyce Maynard, who eventually moved in with the author.
As a guy, myself, this could have been “heaven” but clearly as a young male with values and morals it was more sad than pleasing to see these girls, that could have possibly been my own classmates, crave such attention with these sexual moves. The families present at the river could not believe the event. Many were infuriated and left the river afraid there children would see these females “gone wild.” The problem that seems to be causing the issue amongst these girls and women is that they’re “mistaking sexual power for real power” according to the author of Female Chauvinist Pigs (Jesella). What is even worse is the fact that they believe “that mimicking the sexuality of strippers, Playmates, and porn stars -- women who are paid to simulate real women's sexuality -- is power in the first place” (Jesella). It is quite disturbing that we see lucid behavior as normal; however, that doesn’t mean every girl is participating.
Holden implies by mentioning his thought, that roommates with cheap suitcases are hard to be with, that he is a special person that everyone envies and is jealous of. His attitude shows us that he thinks that he deserves to be roommates only with people who have suitcases which are equal, or even more expensive in price. Holden additionally mentions that he became roommates with Stradlater, whom he dislikes, just because his suitcases were “good
Girls see guys go for the girls that dress scantily clad, the ones that would rather wake up 2 hours earlier just to cake their faces on, the ones that rather go to a school that has hotter guys than a better education, the ones that flirt with all the boys, the girls that think about themselves and have no regards for others, we see it, we good girls see it all. We good girls are usually deemed the ugly friend, the backup, the one the guys would make their wives, but not their girlfriend at the moment. We are the ones that fall for the good boys, but the boys are blinded by the "beauty" of the bad girls. They get caught up in those girls, and what does that leave us good girls to do? Wait.
When Mrs. Mooney is observing Polly’s interactions with young men, she becomes frustrated that “none of [the men] meant business” and considers sending Polly back to her previous job (63).

She stands higher in the hierarchy, and feels that she has power over Jean. Jean is cautiously hesitant, and understand the risks involved in a love relationship with the count's daughter, but when Miss Julie finally almost offers herself, he can not resist the temptation, he starts flirting back, which means that they have sex with each other.

And what is a greater crime than making women hate themselves for reasons that they cannot change? The “anti-narcissism” that men have made consists of women not liking anything about them and wishing that they were the opposite sex just to get more respect. They don’t have any self-respect for themselves because of the nonsense that the “dominant” males have fed them their whole lives. This makes everything hostile for women and while men are busy controlling what the rules are and what can be published, women are struggling with this internal conflict that they’ll never get far in life because of their sex. Cixous boldly declares that women have been “kept in the dark.” What is this darkness you may ask?
From the start, this establishes the uncomfortable relationship with men that the best friend always has, and can not get over. These meetings run by Brett, a homosexual woman, help pound the idea into the best friend’s head that men are the source of all their problems. Yolanda herself does not feel completely comfortable around men, as she will not share her poems with them. How do the women solve this problem that they have with men? They can not just get rid of men, because this is an impossibility in the real world.
