It’s sad to know that society has criticized fat people to the point they feel bad just by looking at skinnier people than them. When skinny people judge fat people it is not good because it makes them feel bad about themselves. It seems like if you want society to accept you, you have to have a perfect body shape. If society stops criticizing fat people and start helping and accepting them, they will feel like they are actually accepted
A major theme in Hosseini's book, A Thousand Splendid Suns is sexism, violence, and the ideology that men have complete control over their wives or people in general. It can not only alter a person directly but it can also change other characters in the book that are close to them and can make them suffer with things not even associated with violence in their story. Violence and sexism can deteriorate a character's intimate and distant acts and can emphasize their status as a character which can be symbolic in the way the characters personality changes because of the violence afflicted to them. Foster has a whole chapter dedicated to violence which means it probably has a big impact in stories. In chapter 11, ...More than it’s gonna hurt you: Concerning Violence, Foster states that violence can cause characters to visit on one another or on themselves, and can cause characters harm in general.
As well as more selfless lifestyle, which allows one to put others before one’s own self. This form of love would be ideal for society. Agapic love shows that acting in a moral way and attempting to treat everyone as equals can create an ideal society that generates happiness for others without the expectation of any reciprocation. In return, this would create a community of individuals that care for each other just because they are people. Although Agapic may not be as focused on benefiting the self, making it less appealing to most individuals, it is still the most morally ideal form of
Chauvinism and Feminism in Handmaid’s tale Introduction This paper explores the relations between women and men in a context of a dystopian society which is very well depicted by Attwood. Debates raised since society acquired language and nowadays is still a hot debate. Radical, feminists point men as the 'main enemy’ and they say that, patriarchy is considered as a form of domination imposed by men on women. Feminists are dealing with how to understand the relations between patriarchy and how to confront to oppose male chauvinism. “You can only be jealous of someone who has something you think you ought to have yourself.” ― Margaret Atwood’s saying at her official Facebook page.
Firstly, Radical feminists strongly believe that the patriarchy has a negative influence on the family, as they believe that the patriarchy is the reason why women are exploited and oppressed. They believe that this exploitation and oppression can be evidenced in various ways including in the more extreme circumstances the act of domestic violence. They are of the belief that males think that since they are head of the household they are allowed to control their family in a very authoritative or dictatorial like manner. This thinking in turn can lead to domestic violence which may include not only physical abuse but also emotional and psychological abuse as well as financial mistreatment. Studies have shown that in these cases the male is often the one inciting the violence while women and children are the victims of his anger as he seeks to exert his dominant role.
A lot of questions arise with respect to one’s morality and values. The job is so dejected by the culture and the people that one has to even skin their profession from their own relatives and even the loved ones. The moment one recognises a Sex Worker is the moment that can destroy one’s career, one’s social life and even the peace of mind. The manner in which one tackles with the complications that tag along the label of a sex worker is also interrelated to the kind of background one comes from. It would be an easier task to answer a society that can be really open-minded and western to accept a woman in a pleasure seeking job to make a living but to the same within a society that satisfies the younger generation with an response like “A child is born with the God’s Grace and nothing more”, sex education and sex as a profession cannot really be seen as an option!
Imagine finally having the sport you are most passionate about available for you to participate in, yet not being able to compete in it simply because you are not of the correct gender. Nowadays, this is a fairly common issue. Whether it is because of both gender differences or due to the common belief that “boys are stronger than girls”, coeducation exercise is not exceedingly popular. Although many people believe males are stronger than females and think that coed sports are unfair, this type of athletics can benefit all athletes in multiple ways because it will allow both genders to work together more efficiently, allow the participants and sponsors to pay less, and help create connections with others that would not originally be made. Some will say that coed sports are not constructive when it comes to males and females working together; however, this is not true because it allows both genders to work together more efficiently.
This power structure and its associated marginalisation of those who don’t conform is the main contributor to the occurrences of gender based violence. While there are many factors contributing to GBV, such as personal childhood experience of violence (once again due to strict social ‘norms’ and ‘traditions’), economic and work stress (thanks to the hegemonic view that the man is the provider) and alcohol abuse, one of the main ones we should be focusing on in order to bring about any sort of positive change is the attitude towards gender equality. We need to focus on creating ‘gender- awareness’ and to look into and understand the complexity of masculinites and to develop alternative male identities, to change the social constructs of what it means to be a man (that don’t equate with violence) and to focus on gender equality and having good male role models in the community who believe in the basic human right of equality for
It is a subject that is often considered private, and an inappropriate subject to discuss publicly. Studying sexual habits and depictions of sex, provides insight into a significant characteristic of culture. In studying porn (a consequential aspect of cultural ideologies surrounding sex), as Alison Lee has in her article The New Face of Porn, we can observe how sex is packaged, perceived, and sold, in this culture. Lee describes her experience working in the porn industry and how it changed her, “seeing the world of Big Porn showed me that not only are women left out, but men are presented with an incredibly bland palate to work from and to mold their own sexuality.”(Lee). If the options that heterosexual women have for pornography are limited and the options for men are ‘bland’ then it suggests that sexuality is flat.
