Psychosocial theories "work from the viewpoint that deviant sexual behavior is a response to external factors and that there is an interconnection between psychological and sociological variables that influence sexual behavior. Sexual behavior is a learned response to particular conditions, and deviant sexual behavior is the outcome of inappropriate socialization. This may result from personal experiences, such as childhood sexual abuse, or be influenced by general factors, such as pornography." Alcoholic and explosive caregivers raised Aileen, that behavior was later reflected in Aileen herself. At a very young age, she became pregnant after being raped by one of her grandfather's friend.
She paints the disgusting truth in blood. Halsey starts her speech, with a story of her friend Sam. She describes the setting of a Planned Parenthood waiting room. Sam and Halsey were waiting for a pregnancy test, because Sam was raped by a man who worked in the after school program. Sam is hoping she doesn’t need an abortion because she couldn’t afford it, and then her parents would be angry.
Disabled people are people who have mental or physical limitation so they depend on someone to support them in doing their daily life needs and jobs. Although disabled people are a minority and they are normally ignored, they are still a part of the society. The statistics show that the proportion of disabled people in the world rose from 10 percent in the seventies of the last century to 15 percent so far. The number of handicapped exceeds a billion people all over the world, occupied about 15 percent of the world's population, as a result of an aging population and the increase in chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, blood and psychological diseases that are related with disabilities and impairments. Every five seconds someone
According to disable world “Generally seeing a person in a wheelchair, wearing a hearing aid, or carrying a white cane tells us a person may be disabled. But what about invisible disabilities that make daily living a bit more difficult for many people worldwide.” This quote proves that they can still do things by themselves so they don't need lots of help. Nearly 10% of america's population have a disability that’s considered a invisible disability. As stated by disabled world “Invisible Disabilities are certain kinds of disabilities that are not immediately apparent to others. It is estimated that 10% of people in the U.S. have a medical condition which could be considered a type of invisible disability.”I think this quote shows how people might have a disability that they don't know about but that still could be there.
There are 110-190 million disable people on the work which is 15% of the world`s population. This means that rates of disables are going up worldwide. These disable people are treated poorly in the I have happy to say that the way we treat them now is a lot better. Sometimes you can not see if they have a disabled or it may not be visible.The disability people in the world have dream/goals just like you,but they have ever day barriers unlike you and they have to pass the barriers including physical,social they have to work through to pass their goals. Throughout history the treatment of disabilities has been horrendous.
I enjoyed reading this novel because it’s about a woman, Frances Ann Benedetto, who was abused, physically, emotionally and sexually, by her husband, Bobby Benedetto. This book is about her struggle of fleeing with her 10-year-old son, Robert Anthony Benedetto, who knows nothing of this abuse because his parents always tell him that her injuries are accidents. It also gives you a fitting example of how domestic abuse impacts you and the people around you. I chose this book because when I read the back I was intrigued as to what would happen to Fran and Robert. At the start of the book Fran has already fled with her son from her husband who is a police officer.

When the boys change to stereotypes they are more likely to be more prone to substance abuse and suicide, having shorter life expectancy, and also engaging in more physical violence than girls. Zoe Greenberg, a journalist at The New York Times talks about gender in her article ¨When a student says, I'm Not a Boy or a Girl¨. In her article, Greenberg talks about the story of Sofia Martin and uses Pathos by using the story of Sofia Martin to play on the emotions of the audience to explain the situation that has occurred with the her, how ¨at the age of 15, after rehearsing in the shower, Martin made an announcement to the students at Puget Sound Community School where she explained to her school how Martin believes that she in not a male or
During her teen years, she was traumatized by the disintegration of her parent’s marriage- her father consorted with prostitutes while her mother was in an affair. Her therapist discovered that she has an olfactory hallucination where she believed that she “smelled like feces.” This statement of hers began to take shape when she had learned the mental rule, “people reject you because you are dirty and unclean” which arises from her experience with her family. She also has a number of hallucinations and delusions where she thought that people could be hurtful, rejecting, and abusive and they might spy on her and even monitor her
They believe that this is a hoax or just a ruse made up by people because they want attention. Just last year at Grant High School, a teacher named David Lickey wrote a paper to a group of freshman students stating his views on rape culture claiming that is is not real and calling it “dubious”. A former student was outraged by this because she was a survivor of rape and this felt like a personal attack on her experience (Brabaw, paragraph 3 and 4). This goes to show that not everyone is aware of rape culture and sexual assault, and it can have negative impacts. Another misconception is that only women are victims to rape and sexual assault, but men are also victimized.
This student obviously tried to talk to an adult and explain what she was going through and how severely did bullying affect her. The student clearly lets us know that Maderas High School staff does not know how to act when a teen dealing with bullying comes for help. It is not easy for a teen to open to what its going through the teens mind and this student did
