Bailey 1 Broc Bailey Professor Fatima Lim-Wilson English 102 19 March 2019 Masculinity and Femininity of Family #1 Did you grow up understand male and female gender roles in a household? The answer is most likely yes, only because gender roles still exist in present day. They have just evolved over time. In “Future Connected By” and Sonnet 43 by “Edward Whitelock” and Elizabeth Browning both talk about masculinity and femininity in a family and gender norms of each one. The poem Future Connected By explains how a boy could grow up going to college and still be as much of a man as his dad was. He grew up understanding the risk of what his Dad did for a living. With that, he held great respects for his father wanting to one day grow up and become the man he is today. Around the beginning of the poem, the boy shakes his Dads friends’ hand and states that he “squeezed my hand til my knuckles rattled” (Whitelock 141).
