Gender and Identity

Exploration of young white male

Identity:

I believe that I am a good student who always tries to get my work done. I think that i'm a shy and very quiet person in public and even at home. I am a PC gamer I play many games but still limited due to my computer. I am also a brony for anyone that do not know what a brony is it is a male viewer of my little pony friendship is magic. I don't watch many tv shows but i watch a lot of anime on Netflix. My favorite show besides my little pony would be Attack on Titan.


In the play Twelfth Night, the character Antonio is a kind man. He will protect anyone he loves this quote shows this perfectly "Put up your sword. If this young gentleman

Have done offence, I take the fault on me.If you offend him, I for him defy you"(Act III scene iv) pg 14. Even though it was really Viola he thought it was Sebastian and wanted to keep him from harm.He also used to be a pirate and he still owes to Orsino's court. Antonio is a very caring man when he found Sebastian he was recently came out of a ship wreck and Antonio nursed him back to health.

Gender:

Most males are expected to be tough, strong and show no emotion. I think that I am opposite of most male stereotypes. I am not very tough or strong I am all around not very athletic like some males are. Some people think that males are brave well I am not brave.



Antonio is a male that is not held back by a lot of these male stereotypes. He is strong and will face danger head on. He is not only strong in the physical way he is also strong in the emotional way also. Antonio will protect anyone he loves.

Perception:

I think people think that I am a quiet person and very shy. Some people may think that I am weird because I watch My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. People think that I am a student who will always do my school work. People think that I am lazy. Some people may think that I am a gaming nerd.


I believe that other character in Twelfth Night see Antonio as kind, loyal and maybe a horrible man. Sebastian see Antonio as a kind and very loyal friend. While Viola thinks he is a horrible man this quote would explain her hatred to him "I know of none,Nor know I you by voice or any feature.I hate ingratitude more in a man.Than lying, vainness, babbling, drunkenness,Or any taint of vice whose strong corruption Inhabits our frail blood—" (Act III scene iv) pg. 16.

Similarities and Differences

A similarity between Antonio and myself is that we both are very protective. Another similarity might be that we are loyal.



A difference is that I am not very brave. Another difference is that I do not face my problems straight on.
