In contrast, Oates begins her version of the tale midway through the relationship. Anna does not seem to have such a negative perspective of men, rather she is just distrustful. Anna’s thoughts of me are “What did it mean to enter into a bond with another person?” (221) “No she did not really trust him; she did not really trust men” (221). From the beginning of each of the stories, both Anna and Dmitry’s distinctively different points of view of members of the opposite sex are apparent. However, through the life of the affair each of their perspectives of the opposite sex softens.
Often women are seen more as property and an assumption that they must be submissive and less powerful then the men in their lives comes into play and discourages them from following their dreams.

She prefers to spend more time with herself than with her family because of this she has a weak relationship with her parents. The story discusses how she has two sides: one for home and one for not being home. Her abduction was solely due to her fault for her appearance that she presented in public, to the relationship that she had with her family and lastly her naiveness. The antagonist Arnold Friend somehow knew about Connie. He saw a great opportunity the moment he set his eyes on her.
Her personality deteroritates from her looks and it is easy to judge her on her actions without knowledge of her motives. However, later in the narrative, Angela’s seemingly well-hidden flaws start to seep through. It becomes apparent that her identity is linked to her appearance when she tries to force others to believe that she is hot and popular, when in reality, she is sad and miserable inside. Like Carolyn, she values physical appearance over inner beauty. Although my values conflict with Angela’s values, I still sympathy with her as I know how much pressure
Jody was power hungry and had no sense of self; he wanted to be a people’s person. Nothing he did was for Janie but instead for his town. He felt that if he wasn’t dominant over Janie the town would see him as a weak, vulnerable and delicate man, especially with the amount of wealth and power he had. He couldn’t let Janie overpower his judgments, because that would destroy his manhood, which is typically how most relationships works. Most women wouldn’t speak up against their man because then society would see them as rude, unrespectful and uncompassionate women, which then would ruin their reputation.
Her actions (if psychoanalyzed) were caused by her unconscious desires, fears, needs, and conflicts.

It’s her animalistic desires that she’s acting upon, but she isn’t initially aware of it. She feels incredibly sexually attracted to Alcée, which is a feeling that she has not felt in a very long time.
Therefore when an incident such as domestic violence occurs, it is magnified. Why should they be allowed to continue enjoying the sport after committing this awful crime? This shows that these specific players do not appreciate what they have and have no respect for women, especially ones they claim to “love”. On the other hand, some believe that without proper trial players should remain active regardless of the evidence that has emerged. People believe that some pieces of evidence are mere assumptions.
Some people believe that society as a whole looks down on people who are simply “different.” The author's general attitude is that everyone needs a way of escape, at certain times in his or her relationships. The story can leave you with a somewhat uncomfortable feeling, as it presents the sense that the affair is not only justifiable, but actually makes everything better. Chopin tries to make the adulterous act acceptable by saying that Calixta’s marriage was bad and she needed to find pleasure elsewhere. This narrative is sexually explicit, but it is also entirely unashamed and unapologetic. There is no sense of
