They end up disliking the whole culture just because of that single cultural activity. According to my understanding, all cultures are meaningful and important. There is no superior or universal culture that can be recommended for those with inferior versions. The only difference is that some cultures allow some activities that are considered immoral universally. Therefore, judging a whole community based on a single cultural activity practiced by a few members of such a community is wrong.
Boo has lost his essential social and communication skills and can not survive outside of his home, this is the consequence of continually being ridiculed and can damage somebody’s self-esteem. In addition, Atticus Finch is another victim of prejudice in the novel. After being chosen to defend Tom Robinson, the town folk starts to exhibit prejudice towards him. The town folk trust that Atticus will not present a legitimate defense for Tom because of his skin color, but Atticus full heartedly intends to do so because he believes in equal rights and condones in prejudice or racism. In addition, Atticus Finch is also the victim of
Executive Summary: Taboo is a strong social prohibition in contradiction of words, objects, actions, or discussions anything that is taken improper is considered undesirable and offensive by a group, culture, society, or community. Taboo is based on the belief that the action a person is going to perform is too sacred but at the same time it is too violent to take the same step by any other ordinary person of the society.

But all the stuff related to term taboo exists in all nearly all the societies of world and "breaking a taboo" is usually considered objectionable by society in general.

Morality plays an important role in music censorship; violence, drugs and sex are topics that are spread nowadays in many songs and these kinds of songs break the traditional moral order in many parts of society. Generational gaps are a large factor; older generations try to censor music of younger generation because they see that new music doesn’t mirror the beliefs and the values of the old so they think
Who is to say that one norm is more normal or morally correct and another is not? Confusion in me turned to a sense of justice. It may not be “normal” for someone to have a different sexual orientation or religious view than somebody else; however, denying someone their right to be that or to believe that is most certainly not the norm. This distinction can be made because norms are not written rules or laws, but our laws and the constitution has been written down and they prevent discrimination based on a whole host of things, making them social norms that everyone must adhere to or must suffer the
Bringing a child into the world and have no intention to scare them and raise them is fundamental evil but only few will realize that. We don’t like to blame those parents who have their babies and not caring them, abandoning them which results in growing crime and evil. Rather we prefer to denounce the society. The author doubts welfare state to be another cause for spreading the evil but it is not sufficient. Though it is not that most extensive nor the most generous in the world whose intention is to help the people in need.
They frequently use to say that “our societal norms and religious values don’t support cursing”. However, they curse those people that are swerved from the social norms, those who commit horrible deeds covertly, individuals or countries who are considered to be the adversaries of Ethiopia, those who try to confront their customs, those creatures that are presupposed to be anti- development and
And it might work for them, but it does way more harm than good. It leaves a scar that will remain there for months or years or indefinitely, just like the emotional pain that they will forever experience from having being mistreated. Bullying and exclusion cause effects on the human brain that very few people understand the extent of. The stereotype of a bully makes some believe that bullying and being bullied is inconsequential, but this is not the case. This harassment can drive people to depression, self-harm, and even suicide.
The harsh economic climate within the region is a possible factor weakening families which have led men being marginalized and women being the authoritative figure in the household. (Mohammed, 2002) Conditions such as these have led to poverty. Children normally inherit poverty from their parents as they are part of the unbroken poverty cycle. As a result poor children find themselves disadvantaged and deprived of basic economic social and human needs. These sorts of deprivations tend to destroy the social and mental functions of these children.
Anyone who isn't the same race stand out. I think it is still a problem within our community now. I think people think that it's ok to bully other people because they don't have the same race i think it's awful. When we someone getting bullied we don’t stand up. If we see someone down we don’t help them back up.
