This was the biggest transgression you could commit, although he didn't care. Equality came to the realization that this society that they had been living in didn't benefit the people. He knew that they never really were equal despite all the rules.
“Stereotypes have created a distortion of how every individual should be.” Taken from Jorge Robles essay, he has said it better than I could ever have. Stereotypes is harmful to our society, because it creates a negative environment and it makes people think less of themselves. Most stereotypes are negative. These negative comments effect everyone, especially teenagers. In the article, “The Effects of Stereotyping Teenagers” it states, “A teen might have the skills and talents to pursue a college degree in art or play collegiate sports, but never follow her dreams because she is stereotyped.

As the years progress, prostitution will continue to be viewed a corrupt and shameful profession. The public opinion around prostitution has dramatically changed over the past century. In John Steinbeck’s novel, East of Eden, he describes a time where prostitution was not only common but accepted. Throughout the novel, he mentions the profession several times and the public views surrounding it.
Burton explores the extent to which teenagers are willing to sacrifice their morals to fit into society. Some examples of peer pressure and wanting to fit in, from the film is when Edward Breaks into the house even though he knows it is wrong and (its Jims house). He also cuts peoples’ hair because they praise him for it, he gets paid in acceptance, food etc. The audience feels helpless and sympathetic to Edward because they know that by doing something immoral he is likely to be caught. Burton has shown a character who is different from everybody else.
Although his actions and decisions seem to be bad, the character gets sympathized for his internal struggles. Afraid of revealing his sin to the public shows his lack of courage. A reason for this lack of courage is due to puritan beliefs. The puritans had religious exclusiveness that was the foremost principle of their society. The Puritans were strict and had punishments for everything especially adultery.
If not addressed, it could even become just as worse. Eric Garner is just one of the many people caught in the crossfire of this terrible problem, and it is tearing this nation apart.

Women started to wear jeans and men began to wear their hair long as a sign of rebellion. Parents were very disapproving of this new style of music and how their teenagers were acting. Parents of these teens referred to the music as Satan’s music because it brought not only the foul lyrics but new dance moves and the influence of drugs and alcohol greatly increased while this music became popular. Parents were concerned that their teens would want to be just like the rockstars on the stage drinking and taking drugs and said that was the devil’s way of tempting their
Due to Bender’s behaviour and personality, he is often alienated by those around him. Merton’s strain theory of behaviour states that deviance is a product of society itself and the conditions that it lays down for each individual. Each society has a certain set of goals and a means of achieving it however when an individual is unable to achieve them, they may resort to deviance (Haskings-Winner, Collishaw, Kritzer & Warecki, 2011). Bender who is unable to meet society’s expectation subtly portrayed by the other students of being academically inclined, popular or athletic, feels the need to go against society because he would not fit in our the school regardless. Moreover, Bender’s household is a distinct factor in his deviant behaviour.
What is bad for America is that this growing detrition or our inability to work side by side and solve the issues that are ripping our country apart.

Families, friends and the society in general are affected in some type of way because like death itself is permanent and cannot be reversed, the families of those taken away suffer a lot in trying to fill the gap. At the same time, the society suffers as the needy people increase in number so government resources have to be increased, which goes back to haunt taxpayers. Racial profiling also have negative impacts on the morale of racialized employees, resulting in such things as increased absenteeism in jobs causing lower productivity rates, and decreased quality of products, all of which can impact businesses. Other people have lost their property and businesses have closed down when people go out in their anger burning and looting the stores as they protest. This happened recently in Baltimore after the death of an innocent young man.
Addiction has destroyed families as much as it has to the individual. The family plays many distinct roles when it comes to addiction. It is a promising idea to avoid name calling and passing judgment onto the addict once the addiction is present. Even though this may be a tough time for the both of you, but by supporting and encouraging the addict to seek treatment, both the addict and the family members can go live happy and productive. Most people don’t understand why or how some people, other than themselves, become addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping and even sex (National Institute on Drug Abuse) Often, people will mistakenly think that the people who are taking substance drugs or even drinking heavily, that those people lack moral principles or are willingly choosing to not stop their drug supply.
