A young man in a suit watches a column of soldiers march past his window. "The window - a poster within the poster - separates the bright male world of waving flags and marching columns from the darkened interior feminine space . . . [exploiting] men's anxiety over their masculinity by suggesting the effeminacy of the man who does not enlist" (Paret p. 56). Paret 75, Rawls p. 82, Theofiles 10, Borkan p. 44, Picture This fig. 48.
