Best Answer

Shaw has distinctly reversed gender role through the characters Louka , Catherine and Sergius. We can observe the masculinity in Louka's character while provoking Nicola. Again her firmness has been lightened through her interaction with Sergius. Mrs. Petkoff has also a touch of masculinity in her dominating part over household works in absence of Mr. Petkoff.On the other hand, Sergius lacks firmness before Bluntschli. He can stand up steadily neither before Raina, nor before Louka. There is a faint touch of effeminacy.

How kan you change your arms in Woozworld?

Ok, first off, you can't. Once you have picked your gender (girl or boy,) you may not change them. If you are a boy and have girl arms, simply just buy boy clothes (if you haven't already,) And if your a girl with guy arms, just simply buy girl clothes (if you haven't already.) At sign-up, the gender's arms you choose are permanent. During really old Woozworld, everyone had the hand on hip. (Also known as girl arms.) But you really can't change your arms once gender is picked. Sorry. Maybe you can sugges arm changes! And, you spelled can wrong!Hope this helped!Xoxo,~AHHHTHEHORROR ;)
