As of today, people are generalized to specific ideas, and life choices because of their gender. Despite being more open-minded, the general public still manages to keep each other limited to doing certain things just because of their sex. This is prevalent in the development of younger children. Jane McManus authored the article, “Gym Class Heroes—Making It Better For Girls Who Just Wanna Play Football,” where she highlights one common stereotype branded on girls. The article includes a prominent amount of personal experience, tone, and pathos making it credible to only a certain extent.
Within Canada and Canadian studies there are many different aspects that issues can be analyzed. With many different issues happening now it is important to understand these viewpoint and lenses used to analyze. One way an issue can be looked at is through a feminist viewpoint. This is an important lens to consider when wanting to understand how women issues play out in Canada. This idea is noted in Rachel Walker’s article “A Fair Country
Our moral beliefs indicate the kind of environment or culture we grew up in. Therefore, if we were born in Somalia, we would believe that it is morally right to go through female circumcision as a rite of passage. However, if we grew up in the western world, then we would not believe in female circumcision. We can therefore see the relativist 's argument of cultural relativism in this case, because if cultural relativism exists, then naturally, morality will also be relative. Additionally, to support his stance, the relativist will also argue that tolerance comes into play when it comes to cultural relativism.
James Rachels has a better argument than Ruth Benedict in defending Moral or Cultural relativism. Rachel agreed that the fact supporting the proposition for Cultural Relativism does not support the argument. Benedict argues from a functionality standpoint, where she used certain human traits to support her argument as being abhorrent in some society but being adequately functional in another society. Though Rachel and Benedict still drew the same analogy of using Homosexuality as an example of abhorrence in one society as being acceptable in another, Rachel argues that it is a matter of moral relativism and cannot be right or wrong, rather it depends on the society one is drawing his or her moral codes from, but Benedict is arguing from the
The literature review gives justified information for the need of conducting the research. Apart from the introduction, there is no other information concerning the research title that could offer detailed information (Chaliha et a., 2001). Despite giving the justified information in the introduction section the paper should have had the literature review section, thus it did not follow the due steps and format of a research paper. The methodology part follows after the introduction and it discloses the methods used, the design, the people included in the study and how the data was sampled and examined. However, the reasons for choosing the design in the research were not
Adichie answers that question and the answer is “Yes”. Once more, Adichie’s definition for feminist is “a man or a woman who says, ‘Yes, there’s a problem with gender as it is today, and we must fix it, we must do better.’” ; Therefore, Adichie says it best – “Culture does not make people. People make culture. So if it is in fact true that the full humanity of women is not our culture, then we must make it our culture.”
The inherent sexism in American culture has caused discrimination against women. Some people do not believe that inequality between genders exists, they are wrong. In the past every achievement that women made was omitted from history books (Philosophical Feminism). Many things that women were a part of are just now being introduced to modern people, such as the fact that women did all of the calculations that made the first ever human in space possible. It is harder for women to get hired in the first place and if they get hired they are paid less for the same amount of work, and race also plays into the wage figures (Wage Gap Figures).
While in the other hand the feminist argue that universal human rights subjecting man as their concern, while woman are being discriminated and given low priority in the
Throughout this essay, cultural relativism will be questioned, but also supported in some ways. The idea of cultural relativism reminds me of a sociological term--ethnocentrism--that essentially means the opposite. Ethnocentrism is essentially a bias about your own culture against other cultures. One can only see their culture (usually as dominant to the others), rather than attempting to see the perspective of whatever culture is in question. An example of real-life cultural relativism is female circumsition or clitordectomy.
Cultural relativism is the understanding of other cultures in their own terms. To achieve the understanding of the rituals used in the cultures of another, one must be able to look at them from an emic (insider) perspective. One must also be able to look at his own culture from an etic (outsider) perspective. The ability to look at one’s culture from the etic point of view will make it easier to explain the rituals to someone from a different culture, for example, rites of passage. Rites of passage are used to mark a life stage and are celebrated by tradition or religion, meant to separate a specific group.
Therefore, different cultures with result in different moral codes. In that case, people should see matters from many aspects instead of having a general truth as the standard. A second reason why cultural relativism has a more logical way of reasoning is because it teaches us to keep in an open mind. This can be seen from the fact that people should respect and tolerate other’s culture since there is no universal truth that holds for all people. Taken together, these two arguments demonstrate the logical way reasoning of cultural relativism and highlight the advantage of the cultural relativism
(Luco, Week 3 Notes, p.9) Cultural Relativism is simply a combination of the following three theses: 1. The only criterion of moral truth or falsehood is the moral code of a cultural group. 2. A moral claim is true, relative to a culture’s moral code, if and only if the claim is generally accepted within that cultural
