“The female of the species is more deadly than the male.” How far do you agree that this is correct in relation to, “The Human Element”?

Thelma is ugly and she knows it. She has a sort of dull khaki coloured eyes, and a “suet pudding face”. The thing that she wants more than anything is to get married but she could not possibly. She is so unpleasant to look at she will never walk down the aisle, and the fact that she is terribly over weight does not help, right? Wrong! She may be as un-attractive as an ogre and as wide as a whale, but she does not have the brains of a dickybird. She is able to manipulate Harry in such a way that he goes from finding her incredibly annoying to being tricked into getting engaged to her.

Thelma managed to get Harry to the picnic. She asked him for his radio, but what she really wanted was for him to come. So she used it as an excuse. She also tried flattery; by saying, “You must be clever to know all about motor bikes.” She does this to get him to talk to her and it works! He wonders for a second if she is sucking up to him (which she is), but then reckons she is too simple for that. Harry is the on that is too simple! Another example of his stupidity is when she approaches him and begins, “massaging him with her bust.” He does not think she knows what she is doing. Of coarse she does!

Conclusion

Harry then suddenly finds Thelma attractive. He remembers when he went on a trip to an art gallery, when he was younger and the naked women. They were fat just like Thelma. He then starts to get excited and makes his big mistake. He says, “ I’d like to look after you all along”

Harry then tries to cuddle up to her but she then plays hard to get.

When they get back to the picnic Thelma announces, “ Me an’ Arry’s engaged” Harry is shocked and is almost sick when he sees “the glitter that comes Ma Baynes’s eyes.”

I completely agree that the saying “The female of the species is more deadly than the male.” Is correct in relation to the human element. This is because at Thelma got Harry from thinking she was like a “young hippopotamus” to thinking she was attractive.
