The reasoning behind the evil woman hypothesis was that woman have violated gender roles as well as laws, which is consistent with hostile sexism. Women may receive more assistant and help post prison compared to men since women typically are not as psychologically as stable compared to men. Men should also be offered this same options as the women are instead of being stereotyped into one category as everyone being the same as one another. People believe that more women are offered more assistance after being released from jail compared to men because men typically want to play the “tough man” role to prove that they do not need any help compared to women once being released from jail. Another factor to as why women receive more options compared to men is that women are usually more targeted by those who they may have gotten to know in jail or even prior to being in jail and also tend to be a victim rather than being a recurring
This was the highest number of deaths reported to the BJS Deaths in Custody Reporting Program since 2007 (www.ncjrs.gov). The leading cause of death is Suicide and heart disease is the second leading cause of death in prisons. One reason why inmates committed suicide is because of depression. They are numerous reasons why inmates become depressed. One reason why inmates are depressed is because of lack of support from family and friends or even just being able to see their family and friends, of course this falls in the category of their sentence.
Alexie said many of his friends have died from alcohol abuse, and it is devastating the Native American society who as a result suffers from the highest suicide rate among any ethnic group in the United States. People are liable to turn to alcoholism because of things that are happening in their lives; because of that, it is important to be aware of how other people are doing. Caring leads to an environment which is open and
Sexual acts for pleasure ,for both man and women, have been forbidden. The new regime has also caused the Commanders relationship with Serena to be damaged, due to them acquiring handmaids. This causes the Commander to form a relationship with Offred, in order to satisfy his needs. He soon manipulates Offred into having sex with him. The irony of this situation rests in the fact that most of the laws, based on the Bible, of Gilead were enforced in order “to protect women,” yet Offred is not being “protected” due to her fear that the Commander might expel her if she does not sleep with him.
By making this scene, he forces this audience to think about issues of rape where society is usually uncomfortable about and chooses to ignore. This makes the scene much more powerful because it is not a topic “conventional theater” usually does simply because it is not something people want to think about and Tuan is saying that even though it is uncomfortable, it is something that is real and needs to be addressed. And Tuan
There are a number of cases that have been filed by prison inmates for Cruel and Unusual Punishment that are again in my opinion totally unethical. The cases that are most disturbing are those brought by individuals who want to have sex reassignment surgery. Tax payer should not be responsible for a personal choice. If there is a need for counseling that is great, do it. But when it comes to providing hormone therapy or clothing for a gender that an inmate is not born but relates himself/herself with, is going a bit too
In the author’s opinion, guys are the ones controlled by their desires instead of controlling their desires. Paglia continues on by saying, “The police and I– have the right to say to you, ‘You stupid idiot, what the hell were you thinking?’”(145). This might be possible for the person who left car key on the hood, but it is very inappropriate and inhumane thing to say to a rape victim. The victim never gave permission to the rapist; going to someone’s room does not mean that she is agreeing to being raped. In my assumption, the author must have made this comparison due to the fact that she was never raped before, which makes her unqualified to make a comparison of such grief to a simple robbery.
Men are also targeted when it comes to gender equality as men are subject to higher rates of suicide for struggling with the image that society wants them to portray. If there wasnt something that both sides needed in order to be viewed as "perfect", this wouldnt need to be a problem. It is not until we are able to work together in order to come to a compromise to solve the problems. Emma wanted to change the perception of the word "Feminism", as she and many others feel it has turned into something that it shouldnt be. But instead we as people should come together to solve these issues.
the childhood horror because they allowed the survivors to be someone else. Even if the client is not part of a Satanic group anymore, these behavioural patterns can certainly stick around even after the trauma. The need to mutilate is related to people raping them, and desperately wanting them to stop. It is also seen as them not wanting to be their biological gender so that they would not be raped anymore. (Stroh, 1996: 69-73).
Deeply entrenched attitudes of appropriate sexual and social roles keep male rape victims silent (Miller, 1983). (Groth & Burgess, 1980; Krueger 1985) reiterated that male rape victims are too humiliated and embarrassed to admit being overpowered, succumbing to self-blame for failing to defend themselves and fear being labelled as homosexual, further explains as to why Michael did not report his rape to police. Unwillingness to disclose men’s victimization relates closely to their reluctance of admission to vulnerability (Huckle, 1995; Stanko & Hodbell, 1993), shame and embarrasment (Mezey & King, 1989; Hillman et al., 1991; Walker, 1993). The male rape coping strategy is characterized by a protective response mechanism structured as ‘denial’ of an intolerable situation, prone to future psychiatric issues (Mezey, 1987). We observe this denial in Michael, whereby he explained the cuts and bruising to family and friends as resulting from a fight he had won to maintain his dignity in their view.
