By God, I may be old-fashioned in my ideas, but women run around too much these days to suit me.
Here Tom associates Daisy with the new liberated women of the 1920s, often referred to as flappers.
Ironically, whilst Tom is uncomfortable with his own wife travelling and socialising independently, he doesn’t seem to apply the same standards to his mistress, Myrtle. This is a prime example of Tom’s hypocrisy; he puts on a front, like the rest of the wealthy characters, by making all the right noises about “family institutions”, when in his private life he is completely against them.
