In M. Butterfly, by Henry Hwang, we are presented with a very complex character named Gallimard. Gallimard is homosexual, however he seems to be denying this fact to himself throughout his whole life. He has a very twisted view of the world, and he convinces himself that many of the actions he takes are for reasons that are very different from the obvious ones. Gallimard convinces himself that he loves Song because she is "like a butterfly" and because she is the only person who can make him feel happy with himself. Whenever he is presented with the opportunity to have sex with women, he rejects it in favor of spending time with Song, making up a bunch of ridiculous excuses. In almost every scene in which Gallimard is involved, he seems to be unconsciously deceiving himself in order to fulfill his desires of living a homosexual life.
