The main reason many people support the ERA is because they want equal pay for everyone. However, in “ERA – Do You Know WHAT It Means?”, it explicitly states that the ERA will not give women "equal pay for equal work", and can add nothing to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, The Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972, and a multitude of federal and state laws and executive orders in regard to employment. If one of the major reasons for the amendment in the first place won’t even be fulfilled, along with equal rights, there is no real reason to pass it. Not only do women not get equal pay, but they also don’t get equal educational opportunities. Also stated in the article previously stated, the ERA will not improve present educational opportunities for women which have already been mandated by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and H.E.W.
What traits do parents seem to value most in their opposite sex children? Parents who favour their opposite sex children has little to do with gender, but more aligned with traits that are similar to their parents. For ambitious or successful parents, kids who follow in their parents footsteps tend to be favoured by that particular parent. A term labeled as “Reproductive Narcissism”, mentioned within the article, is referring to the idea that if a child does not look like you, they can at least act like you, and share the same qualities. Which children in the birth order have the highest chances of becoming the favourite?
Why do people have a problem with gay marriage? It is not all people who have a problem with gay marriage, but there are those who believe that gay marriage is an abomination and goes against God. Others however, believe that people are just people, and it does not matter if you are gay or not. Charles Colson believes that gay marriage is the end of the tradition of marriage; especially if gay couples are able to adopt children. Katha Pollitt however, believes that it does not matter if a couple is gay, straight, or elderly; as long as they are happy together and love one another.
Individuals believe that if children were raised by homosexual parents that it would corrupt the child into believing that everyone is gay or lesbian later on in life. As for the American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP), they ran tests and revealed that the majority of the sex parents are "more tolerant of diversity and more nurturing toward younger children than children whose parents are heterosexual" (Hirsch, Alan, and Brad Sears). For raising a child, homosexuals seem to understand how to grow children into better adults; by growing them like plants, they have to dig their roots or their morals and principles into the foundation of their life to understand who they are and how to act. Children that are being raised around discrimination towards their parents takes a lot out of the parents by showing their children the right way and how to treat others as
School health professionals have shown that their training and confidence in interacting with the LGBTQ community in general is not at the best degree that it should be. Nonetheless, transgender youths have shown that with support they can reach a similar, sometimes even lower, degree of anxiety and depression as their cisgendered siblings and peers. It is essential that transgender children receive the proper support to help them grow as an individual, and allow them to grow as a person. The responsibility does not solely rely on the family, but also on the people in which these children interact with ranging from teachers to friends. There needs to be more research done and brought to the public eye in the hopes that society will stop alienating the transgender community and understand the effects they experience as a
It has a big part in education by making it easier for the students and teachers. The AAP(American Academy of Pediatrics) states that recess is a crucial part of education. Recess is a step towards a better education. Everyone knows that being fit is great for physical health, but did you know it also contributes to your cognitive state? Several studies have shown that fitter children do better in school compared to their not as fit peers.
A child that is transracially adopted will handle identity concerns better than most people because they can’t act like they are anyone else. The adopted child will thrive off of being their own person and that can keep them happy. The family of the child can also help with this by exposing them to different activities that involve children of other races that they can connect with. “Growing up in a culturally diverse home that offers children books, music and artwork that represent the child’s race will create an identity for the child that is positive and that will also seek to expand racial awareness for the entire family” (Guberman,
With affordable and easier adoption processes, more children will have lovely adopted parents more quickly. There is a significantly higher amount of ethnic, or non-white, children that need to be adopted. This creates a win-win situation for both the parents and the child because the child can be placed with their new family much faster. Whites who understand the significance of race, and who are otherwise qualified, should be permitted to adopt black children (Maxwell). If a white family is willing to learn and understand what it means to be a certain race, then they should be allowed to adopt black children.
This only increases the number of couples to adopt which can move children into a stable family. As the trend continues, the numbers will only increase. Now many more children get to have a family of their own and couples get to feel the joy of being able to have a child and give their care and love to them. LGBT couples does not mean their desire to wanting to raise a family changes and courts have stated that treating same sex couples different would be a violation to the Equal Protection Clause. These couples are very beneficial to the children by giving stable homes to thousands of them without parents.
Children that have a sibling have to split the attention with each other, so when they don’t have a sibling, they get a better education. When all the attention is on them, their parents can help them. The opposing argument wishes that chinese kids could have siblings. However, this leads to abortion and sterilization. You see, the policy was a good idea because the children are the center of attention, it eases pressure on the environment, and children get a better education.
I) Introduction – The Foster Care system and Homosexual’s being able to adopt both show through research to provide many benefits to a child in need. Although neither seems to be the best option, people seem to have rooted for one more than the other due to sexual orientation, but what for? Doesn’t both foster care and homosexual adoption provide love and care for children or is one more suitable for children than the other? Through personal research it seems as if Homosexual’s adopting children is just as good as a child remaining in the Foster Care system (Claim). II) Homosexuals deserve the right to parent just as heterosexuals do (Reason).
Meanwhile the government are not protecting the LGBT community because it’s considered “wrong” this causes violence towards homosexual. For example, the cons about Gay Rights is that “Married LGBT couples can access the same assistance as heterosexual couples and are afforded the same amount of protection under the law”(Duigon 4). The government does not show equalness towards the LGBT community as they do to the “straight” people. It’s disappointing that protection is reduced because he or she is attracted to their same gender or more, but how government ignores that fact that they are struggling as well at the other and yet nothing has changed for them. To go into more detail, Mississippi has created a law to where doctors can refuse to provide medical care to he or she that are homosexual, as well as therapist do not have to counsel them either.
This is where the controversy within myself starts. Because this idea sets in with women rights as well. I do not believe the government has the right to tell you what you should and shouldn’t do with your child. I do not believe they should help you, and I don’t believe that they should hurt you either. This also means no government funding for planned parenthood.
Another finding of the study, was that positive parenting would moderate the association of intimate partner violence with child trauma (Ehrensaft, Knous-Westfall, & Cohen, 2016). Overall, the research demonstrates that children being exposed to intimate partner violence between their parents may increase the risk of them experiencing trauma symptoms in future. Also, they are more susceptible to practicing negative parenting rather than positive parenting with their own children. Positive parenting may be able to moderate the association of inmate partner violence, but it does not necessarily work when inmate partner
