Stanley Kowalski can only be described as character who is seen as a dominate male figure, he fits the classical sterotypical character of a hunter gatherer this is show in Act 1 Scene 1.
This shows that he brings the food home for his wife but also expects her to play the passive wife and meet the gender roles and go and cook. This could also imply that Stanley is quite primal in his ways and is aware of his masculinity. The throwing of the meat also highlights the theme of sex throughout the play.
He is quite sexual in his talk with his wife stella which is one of the main traits of his personality. "Since earliest manhood the center of his life has been pleasure with women, the giving and the taking of it, not with weak indulgence, dependantly, but with the power and pride of a featherd male bird amoung hens". It is possible to tell from the way Williams talks that stanely is considerd the alpha male and very often ends up with him…
