Masturbation is an intrinsically and seriously disordered act (Pope Paul VI). However, scholars in Islam do not strictly banned masturbation and they also not generally approve masturbation except in extenuating circumstances. For me, I agree that under certain condition, masturbation can be done as we are looking for a solution to treat infertility couple to have children as long as it is done for correct intention and noble
For example, how can one convince a devout Muslim that it is wrong to deny girls education? In arguing his case, McBryer gives a list of things that many people would consider as opinions but which he believes are moral facts. McBryer fails to consider the fact that an opinion, which is a personal view about an
The movie demonstrated and provided moral example of the two topics “Racial and Interracial Dating”. Although, the movie showed that some people are still living in the era where different races should not be treated equally which is very unethical.
Are non-conformists rebels or people trying to progress the world? Non-conformists reject mainstream culture to join a counterculture. There are many non-conformists groups like the homosexuals, artists, and Goths who are stereotyped as rebellious or lazy by other people that don't agree with the ideas of their counterculture. However the stories of nonconformists helping society have made it clear that non-conformity is helpful and furthermore enhances society. Non-conformists’ ideas reject mainstream culture, however, those ideas are trying to improve the world or are helping others by accepting them when mainstream society looks down upon them.
Social forces are common in cultures all around the world. Whether it is the compulsion of women to get married and have children or the thrust upon men to be adequate in supporting such families, there is clearly a boundary line that has been created between genders and what is expected of them. Judith Lorber’s “Believing is Seeing: Biology as Ideology” claims that gender is socially constructed. This theory illuminates a study on recreational steroid usage by Matthew Petrocelli, Trish Oberweis, and Joseph Petrocelli, titled “Getting Huge Getting Ripped: A Qualitative Exploration of Recreational Steroid Use.” By using Lorber as a frame to analyze Petrocelli’s work, I have concluded that expectations embedded in bodybuilding result from
a male choosing a female character and vice-versa) (MacCallum-Stewart, 2008). Trans-sexual– “(It) is a term used to describe a person who lives in a gender that I different from the sex they were assigned at birth. Many trans-sexual people opt to undergo physical transformations such as surgery and hormone therapy so that their bodies more closely align with social norms for their gender identities. Although it is categorized as one type of gender identity disorder by the American Psychological Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, many advocates have worked to remove this designation from the DSM in order to reduce the stigma and association with mental illness often attached to individuals who are trans-sexual” (Meyer, 2010). Video Game– “(It is) a game played by electronically manipulating images produced by a computer program on a television screen or other display screen” (Oxford University Press, 2015).
In order to be a social problem, the issue must affect a group of people. People who are pro-life, believe abortion should not be legal, while some people believe that the fetus is not a living person therefore it should be legal. There are also people who are in the middle, they are neutral, they are neither for or against abortions. If abortion is illegal then it will still happen. Women would still find a way to still have abortions but, they will be taking a greater risk in having them done.
This connotation towards eugenics is common throughout religion today. Today we have the ability to have pre-natal testing preformed to test if children have certain disabilities such as Down syndrome. According to writer Ross Douthat of The New York Times, “90% of cases that result in a positive Down syndrome test leads to abortion.” This would obviously cause an uproar within certain religious communities that are against abortion. These communities also need to realize that the ability of gene therapy can be used for good such as: the ability to get rid of Down syndrome and other illnesses. The advancements in technology will only continue to increase allowing a vast variety of options in eugenics.
Gender and sex According to Jones (1991:345) both sex and gender affect health. Sex refers to, were as to gender refers to social categorization of masculine and feminine and to the several expectations regarding masculinity and femininity that we are supposed to follow based on our assigned sex (Bird and Rieker, 2008: 358). Based on simple display of epidemiological data, there is a great explanation that sex and gender are also socio-structural factors that also affect health. It has been stated that individuals that are classified as females within a society tend to live for a long period when compared to men. However the significant differences that may exist within both males and females is that “life expectancies suggest that sex may straightly affect health, but the chances that exists between these two categories come with the concept that it is actually gender that affects health” (Weitz, 2013:63), This is because most females live longer than males not because of the fact that their biology has changed but because their social position has completely changed within a
Some may oppose vaccinations due to religious reasons, safety concerns, or because they were given misinformation. Nonetheless, these people collectively form the “Anti-Vaccination Movement”. However, not all members of the movement are extremists – out to destroy the science of vaccinations. On one spectrum, there are genuinely concerned parents, who are unsure which side of the battle they should listen to. However, on the other end, there are extreme “anti-vaxxers” who view vaccines as ‘poisonous’ and a violation of human rights.
