When Janie meets Tea Cake, a poor and adventurous worker, she knows that he is seen as an undesirable and unsuitable match for her: “Janie, everybody’s talkin’ bout how Tea Cake is draggin you round tuh places you ain’t used tuh” (112). Knowing that people saw Tea Cake as an incompatible match did not stop Janie from loving him. Janie understood societies view of him, but did not allow this to stop her from trying to find true love. Through Tea Cake, Janie learned that real love is feeling appreciated and truly desired, and that her past relationships were not love: “Tea Cake love me in blue, so Ah wears it. Jody ain’t never in his life picked out no color for me”(112).

His daughters were totally in tune with it, but his son wanted no parts of it and Kinsey did not care. I did like that Kinsey brought couples out of their comfort zone; most of the couples he taught knew nothing about sex and it was like taboo them. Most of them did not know there were other positions in which to have sex. Also, Kinsey had his little pecker fixed and he started to enjoy sex in other positions, I am guessing that it was too little for any other positions. I feel the main message in the movie is that sex is something to enjoy, Kinsey believes that “people should explore all sexual even of the opposite sex, and oral sex.
Mattie I believe was very spoiled by her father and sheltered as well. She did have a sense of the outside world as many young girls explore at a young age, she was not given that option. I think the reason for her doing what she did was because she was so sheltered and thought that she could make her own decisions but her own decisions got her mixed up in a situation leaving her basically alone to take care of her son. I believe that her father abandoned her because she went against him and made her own decisions. Etta was a character who did not settle down with a man, she was very free spirited.
Caleb and Maggie didn’t care what they said though and went on to loving each other and secretly meeting up. They enjoyed life together, side by side. Simone used the theme of love and tragedy to convince her audience that even though life is hard sometimes you just have to take the good with the bad and make the best of it. This refers to the quote as well. Its ironic how she almost died and he almost died too but when placed together, side by side, they can overcome
She is always mistaken by others because of her clothes and actions. She doesn’t care what people think of her and is very independent. She speaks to everyone regardless what they are saying about her. Another character in this novel is Tea Cake, which was Janie’s third husband and real love. He was lot younger than Janie but loved her dearly and would do anything for her.
But Daisy was a very picky girl. You can tell when she ignored all of the non wealthy, non classy men that tried to woo her. But then, the rich, handsome, elegant Jay Gatsby introduced himself to her, she couldn't have found a better person. Distracted by the present figure of Gatsby, she didn't love Gatsby, it was the image. For Gatsby, it made him believe that Daisy really fell in love with him.
Tom being married to Daisy he had no problem having a mistress, and possibly ruining his marriage. Tom then gets involved with Myrtle, who is also married to Mr. Wilson. Showing absolutely no sensitivity to anyone what’s so ever. Tom and Daisy’s marriage was only to save Daisy from a bad path and help her maintain her reputation of being rich. “One thing's sure and nothing's surer the rich get richer.”(95) For Daisy love means absolutely nothing in her heart, but money rules her brain.
After he apologizes to her for saying he didn’t like her husband Claude reflects on Mrs. Meitner. Claude says he didn’t hate her husband because he made Mrs. Meitner happy but he hated Hitler for taking away her happiness. This shows how empathetic Claude was at such a young age. Even though he did not completely want to give up on the idea of marrying Mrs. Meitner he wanted her to be happy and “let her go.” This shows how Claude has traits that no other kid had his age. By seeing past Claude Brown’s bad boy ways of robbing, drug use and thuggish persona you see very grown up attitude of a kid not even in high school.
(www.Cliffnotes.com) Although Fitzgerald makes her despite being beautiful and charming, Daisy’s very selfish, shallow and a mean person. Moreover, Daisy truthfully married tom for his money and didn’t care what he did, unless and so long as he could continue to buy her anything she wanted. Daisy also would hope that her child was a girl, so that she’d be like her and survived the way she did “And I hope she’ll be a fool-that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”. (Pg. 17 Scott Fitzgerald ;) Daisy was implying that the best way a female was to survive in this world was to be attractive and not do anything with her life, and sit back and let money buy her happiness.
