I would like to know what "chafed" means in the following sentences:
"I like her," said Daisy, "I think she's lovely."
But the rest offended her—and inarguably, because it wasn't a gesture but an emotion. She was appalled by West Egg, this unprecedented "place" that Broadway had begotten upon a Long Island fishing village—appalled by its raw vigor that chafed under the old euphemisms and by the too obtrusive fate that herded its inhabitants along a short-cut from nothing to nothing. She saw something awful in the very simplicity she failed to understand.
This is an excerpt from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Daisy, Tom and Nick went to Gatsby's party, where Daisy was astonished at its unmasked hedonism. Throughout the party, she was more and more aware of the difference between her "old money" society and the "new money" society at Gatsby's party. Therefore, she came to dislike everyone present except one very famous actress.
In this part, I could not grasp what "chafed" means. How could the raw vigor be chafed under the old euphemisms? Does it mean that the euphemisms curbed their raw vigor?
I would very much appreciate your help. :)
