Oh! So you want some rough-house! All right, let's have some rough-house!
Tennessee Williams, uses this scene, where Blanche gets raped by Stanley in order to prove that he, Stanley, is still in control of the household. Williams displays the power that men are awarded as opposed to women in that scene.
In life, there occurs a constant battle for power among people; their actions and responses to such issues determine how and whether they keep the peace among themselves.
Williams incorporates Stanley's words to Stella concerning his idea of her property belonging to him and actions toward Blanche when he rapes her, both to enforce upon the women as reminder that he, Stanley, is in power. Stanley, being the male, will get the final say in matters or he will fight for his right to do so. He will go to extreme lengths and do anything in order to gain that respect and have his fellow friends and family acknowledge his power.
