Stella: How does playwright Tennessee Williams use the character's actions, description, or words to make a strong statement about gender in our society? "I said I am not in anything that I have a desire to get out of"
Stella:" I said I am not in anything that I have a desire to get out of."(pg.60)
It is gender commentry because it is during the scene where Blanche is talking about her husband's aggressive behavior and how she thinks she is trapped. However, from Stella's response, it is safe to say she both acknowledges his behavior and accepts it. It helps depict how not all relationships are viewed the same.
Blanche:"Stella, I can't live with him! You can, he's your husband. But how could I stay here with him, after last night, with, just those curtains between us?"pg.71
Stella: "Blanche, you saw him at his worst last night "(pg. 71)
It is gender commentary because it talks about Stella's husband's aggressive behavior and how Stella feels the need to defend him simply because of the fact that he is her husband.
In both instances, Stella is accepting the life she has with her aggressive husband and is defending him for his actions simply because they are married.Stella's words react almost in a hostile manner to anyone who is truly against him.This is like life in the sense that at times, people are brainwashed into thinking the way their life with another person is how it's supposed to be, even if it causes them harm, almost to the point where they are experiencing stockholm syndrome.
