  • His views on women make me in love with him.
  • "Yuh can’t beat uh woman. Dey jes won’t stand fuh it" (Hurston 58).
  • "Things lak dat got uh whole lot tuh do wid convenience, but it ain’t got nothin’ tuh do wid love" (Hurston 63).
  • Tea-Cake is breaking social barriers to be with me!!!
  • "Ah’m older than Tea Cake, yes. But he done showed me where it’s de thought dat makes de difference in ages. If people thinks de same they can make it all right. So in the beginnin’ new thoughts had tuh be thought and new words said. After Ah got used tuh dat, we gits ‘long jus’ fine. He done taught me de maiden language all over" (Hurston 86).
  • Here we can tell that Tea-Cake, unlike most men that deprecated women at the time, acknowledges the rights and power each woman posseses. This in turn, is the key that opens Janie's heart making her fall in love with him. This also allows Janie to feel comfortable and ebullient whilst next to him because of how well he treats women in her mind.
  • Chapter 10
  • In this chapter, we see a lot of barriers being broken. Tea-Cake sequesters the fact that there is an age gap between them. This is because he does not feel the age gap, nor does he care about it because the only thing he cares about is Janie. At first, Janie was skeptical of Tea-Cake, thinking he would bring onerous to her life like men before, but instead she is happy to be with him.
  • Chapter 11
  • Janie is becoming more open with Pheoby about her happiness with Tea-Cake. His youth and love was ambient with her heart, and thus made her feel younger and in love. She explains this to Phoebe, and believes that he is not like the men that she had encountered before him.
  • Chapter 12
