aunt jenifer tiger are totally different from her own character . explain

Although the gender of the tigers are not mentioned explicitly in the poem, it can be inferred that their gender is not so important as these are creatures of Aunt Jennifer's imagination. They can either be considered to be 'male' because she uses the word tiger rather than tigress. They pace in sleek chivalry which is usually associated with men so it can be inferred that they are male. Aunt Jennifer probably envisages a world where men do not have to assert their masculinity by dominating a woman, they can do so regardless of the female presence so that the women are also free from dominion.
