In contrast to past gender stereotypes, they argue that girls should be strong, independent, and intelligent. Orenstein takes a second wave feminism approach, meaning females are just as capable as males. She references how she commonly writes about feminism and warning parents of a “preoccupation of body and beauty” in order to pull for a change in society (327). The beauty standards give women an impossible set of goals deterring their confidence. In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329).
In “Teens Turn to cosmetic Surgery,” doctors are encourage cosmetic surgery if the teenager has a legitimate reason. However, in “Does Cosmetic Facial Surgery List Self- Esteem?,” doctors suggest that cosmetic surgery will not improve one’s life. My position is heavily weighed on finance. If a teenager is independently paying for the surgery and emotionally ready, the teenager should have complete decision whether or not to undergo the surgery. However, not all teenagers are able to pay for these cosmetic surgeries.
If a person takes the time to conduct a bit of research, they will realize that not all of the information published by the media, or said by biased politicians, is legitimate. Because of this thread, a person's judgment can certainly become clouded with fallacious ideas. Planned Parenthood is not a corrupt organization; in fact, it has become, "America's most trusted reproductive health care provider" (plannedparenthood.org). From the woman whose fertility was saved through the detection of tumors in her ovaries to the uninsured woman diagnosed with PCOS and endometriosis, these are the stories that need to be shared. (istandwithpp.org).
They think they have to change to be beautiful but the only change they need to make, is the way they think about themselves. In today’s society this is relevant to women or men getting plastic surgery to look a certain way, either from people in magazines, or from people on TV. Whether it be facial features or body features, people never seem to be happy with themselves, due to social media. More specifically pictures of people looking the way most of everyone in society wants to look. Pictures of slim waist, petite nose, large lips, or even a bigger bottom.
EHRs will always have pros and cons impact in the healthcare organizations. The biggest limitations of the electronic health record system could be that the system is not yet integrated in all hospitals and health care facilities. The health care providers and researchers are enthusiastic and anticipate better technology because it would be more beneficial for health care IT technology as it advances. Last but not least, I believe that the government should support on the network improvement to achieve meaningful use of EHRs
This has allowed for environmental hazards to be ignored, causing the problems we are only now seeing. While the products provided by this industry are critical in most instances, doing things like saving lives and helping with mental health, the way this system is structured needs to change. This is apparent from our research, showing the severity and implications of this contamination. The fault does not only fall on the pharmaceutical companies; hospitals, drug stores, our government, and even us as consumers are at fault. Our government has some regulations for how these should be disposed of by hospitals and individuals, but these are not enforced.
Because of the patriarchal control within pop culture, women are being objectified to please the gender biases of society. Women are forced to present a particular image that fits into pop culture standards as shown in Lady Gaga’s music video “Applause”. Applause is a song written by Lady Gaga in 2013 and was created to express how she appreciates performing because of the support from her fans. This song targets the idea that musicians use their audience’s approval to demonstrate how successful they are. It is a common belief that the less clothing one wears, the more successful they will be.
This along with media outlets, beauty industries, and beauty standards has caused many to change how they look. The pressure to be considered perfect consumes many aspects of people’s lives, and destroys them little by little. Beauty pageants, modeling, and cosmetic surgery all demonstrate how media outlets contribute to societies beauty standards. Beauty pageants are social events where individuals, usually women, of all ages are paraded in front of an audience to be admired
Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life Abortion. The word alone has the power to make a room go still. The popular debate topic has a reputation of provoking aggression no matter where it is mentioned due to its strong relation to people’s rights and ethics, but does it really need further deliberation? Abortions should be kept legal across the United States for a multitude of reasons: they allow people to stay in school and work, largely lessen likelihood of would-be-parents falling into economic depressions, prevent overload of responsibilities to the unprepared, protect women’s rights to privacy, help reduce the number of parentless children, conserve resources, give options, decrease maternal injuries, lower crime rates, and maintain the amount of federal spending on welfare. In recent years, the debate between “pro-choice” and “pro-life” has become a well-known topic of discussion filled with heat and passion; nevertheless, the question of whether one should consider themselves pro-choice or pro-life should only be asked after one has done their research and knows the true definition of each term.
Young adults who want to have plastic surgery often have a different intention and goal than adults. They decide to have plastic surgery to improve any physical features they feel are troublesome or imperfect. If these imperfections were left uncorrected, they could affect the teen later in life. Teens should be allowed to have corrective cosmetic surgery, because it can help improve self-confidence and self-esteem and it can help medically. Cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery is defined as a form of medicine focused on making enhancements to the body.
