SteinbecksuggeststhatinThePearl,whichhewrote,desires
ofmenandwomentendtobequitedifferentandIagreewithit.
Menandwomenhavedifferentthoughtsandtreateddifferently.Itis
truethatmenusesstrengthandwomenusesbrainsandthatmen
alwaysmaketroubles.Inoursociety,usuallymenprotecttheirwomen
andchildren.Withthisinourminds,menandwomenfeelthemselves
different,taughtdifferentlywhentheyareborn,andusuallyhave
differentdesires.Wecanlearnfrom ThePearlthatsuchasKino,
whomistheman,wouldstartthetroubleandpullsCoyotito,Whom
isKinos son,todeath.ButforJuana,thewoman,knewsomething
badwas goingtohappenwhenshesawthepearl buttonotdestroy
herhusband,Kino, sdreams,shekeepshermouthshut.Iagreewith
SteinbeckssuggestioninThePearlthatthedesiresofmenand
womantendtobequitedifferent.


Inmyopinion,Menhavestrongprideandneverwanttoloose
especiallyinstrength.AsinThePearlwhenJuana,whoisKinos
wife,askedtothrowthepearlthathefoundaway,Kinoonlythought
aboutwinningandfighting.Iwillfightthisthing.Iwillwinoverit.

herhusbanddisappointedanddidntbeghimbecauseshe knewthat
hewillnevergiveupthepearl.LikeJuana, womencaresaboutothers
feelings.


Inmyopinion,menarealsomoredidntargueaboutthisbecauseshedidnotwanttodestroyKinos
dreams.LikeJuana,womenhavepassionwhichshowsthatwomen
dontwanttohurtothersfeelings.


Ialsoth…..inkthatwomen aremorecarefulthanmen.Women
usuallyknowswhattheyaredoing,butmenmostlymakeproblems.
WhenKinosaid, Iamaman. (P.57)
ItmeantthatKinowoulddrivehisstrengthagainst
amountainandplungehisstrengthagainstthesea.Juana
inherwomanssoul,knewthatthemountainwouldstand
whilethemanbrokehimself;thattheseawouldsurge
whilethemanddrownedin it. (P.59~60)
ThismeansthatJuanaknewthatKinoisfightingwithsociety
andwouldcollapse.KinoacceptedthiswhenCoyotito,Kinosson,
died.Thisshowsthatmenrushintothingscarelessly.


Ithinkthatwomendesiresofmenandmendesiresofwomen.
LikeJuanalovedandneededKinoandthought,
Andyetitwasthisthingthatmadehimaman,
halfinsaneandhalfgod,andJuanahadneedofaman;
shecouldnotlivewithoutaman.Althoughshemightbe
puzzledbythesedifferencesbetweenmanandwoman,she

InKinosheadtherewasa songnow,clearand

havecalledittheSongoftheFamily.(P.2)
TheSongoftheFamilyshowstheloveofhisfamily,Juana
andCoyotito.KinofellinlovewithJuanaandtheloveofneeding
shownintheSongoftheFamily.


ThereforeMenandwomenarehavedifferentthoughtsand
taughtunequally.IfiguredwhatSteinbeckwastryingtoshowabout
menandwomenhowJuanaandKinosthoughtsaboutthepearlwere
different.Juanahadwisedecisionswhichmeantwomendontmake
problemsthanmenmake. SoIagreewithSteinbeckssuggestionthatoftenselfishthanwoman.
