Escapism and Self-defense mechanism
When Orlando is exposed to the danger, he changes his sex. It is humourous conception and can be interpreted as escapism. And it is the tendency of the escapism in society which the danger could be everywhere. Insecurity gives people a desire to be away from the anxiety and need something to protect themselves. In this project, it claims for the sight of optimism with humour. An attack and escape are the clear phenomenon that defense mechanism has. An attack is an active reaction against the target, on the other hand, escape is repressing one’s desire.
