Women in the wasteland
All of the women in the wasteland seem to be regarded as second class citizens, even though independent women were starting to gain traction. I don't know if Elliot is trying to put down this feminist "revolution" so to speak, but he is definitely not supportive of women's rights as he references women as tools for reproduction and property of man. Freud was also somewhat of an anti-feminist, and I'm sure many of their values would cross over. I don't know if these parallels are related, but women's rights was a controversial topic of the times.
