Cultural shock is unavoidable for almost newcomer refugee people.

Perhaps one of the most fascinating yet depressing studies on gender, its fluidity, and how oppressive it can be is the case of David Reimer. In Chapter 3 of "Undoing Gender" by Judith Butler, this situation was studied in detail and psychoanalyzed. When Reimer was extremely young (under a year old), his penis was damaged and had to be removed, so psychiatrist John Money stepped in and told Reimer's parents that they could have sex reassignment surgery, raise David as a girl, and he'd live a normal and happy life. David was thus renamed Brenda and was brought up as female. Around age eight, however, Brenda started exhibiting traditionally masculine behaviors such as wanting to play with trucks and toy guns.
Despite all of her features, including eyes, brow, and lips, “being heaven-sent and bearing a celestial stamp,” Elizabeth did not have the ideal childhood (33). Her mother passed away giving birth and her father either “died or still lingered in the dungeons of Austria” (33). Until the Frankenstein family adopted her, she lived desperate to survive each day, begging for whatever food their hodge-podge family could receive. Therefore, when she was adopted into Frankenstein’s family, it is not surprising she developed an extremely dependent relationship with Frankenstein himself. She was chosen to be a “pretty present for Victor” and could only live up to what was expected of her.
In chapter 14 of Brave New World, death is treated as nothing more than an inevitability. In this chapter, we see that even though John is looking for his mother, the nurse is impatient and tells him “Well, I must go, ... I’ve got my batch of children coming.” (182) These children are more important to the nurse due to her conditioning telling her death is going to come to the patient sooner than the children. When the nurse finally brings the children for their death conditioning, “They swarmed between the beds, clambered over, crawled under, peeped into T.V. boxes, made faces at the patients.” (183) These children are being conditioned to treat death as something natural, so as children they treat the hospital like their playground. When
When Anne reached puberty, she assisted her mother in delivering three of her siblings. These experiences during her childhood, helping her mother, helped contribute to the talents she used to become an excellent midwife and nurse. While spending so much time with infants, Anne began to start developing rebellious ideas against the theory that all infants were born in Original Sin. Original Sin is the idea that in result of the first man, Adam, who sinned in the Garden of Eden, every human who is born is automatically born in sin. This idea expressed that no matter how old an infant is, it was still a sinner and was bathed in
The case study that I chose was from Nursing Ethics Journal is titled, The twins: a case study in ethical deliberation. This case presents a nurses perspective about nine year old, Roman Catholic, Hispanic twins, who survived a very difficult preterm birth and were in a persistent vegetative state since childbirth. The parents took care of the twins along with their four other children, but the growing demand of the twins was starting to take a toll on the parents, so they decided to place the twins in an institution. From the time that the twins were admitted to the institution, they have been frequently admitted to the hospital related to respiratory illnesses and urinary tract infection, which were a result of their deteriorating immune system. The nurse’s role was to obtain a do not resuscitate (DNR) order from the parents due to the doctors stating the twins have less than a year left to live, and “why prolong the inevitable?” (Freysteinson, 2009).

Imagine your beautiful baby girl being born and finding out she has a birth defect affecting her quality of life forever. I was born with Bladder Exstrophy, a rare abnormality present at birth in which the bladder and associated structures are improperly formed and occur in 1 out of 50,000 births. Throughout my childhood I’ve had 14 surgeries to make my life as “normal” as can be. To manage my situation, it requires different techniques just to empty my bladder and to prevent serious infections. Recognizing the need to help me and support others with this anomaly, my parents organized a support group campout.
