Conversion Therapy Although many people have strong convictions against gay people, sometimes leading parents to attempt to change their children’s sexual orientation, it should be banned on a national level for parents to be able to force their children under the age of 18 into conversion therapy because it is unconstitutional, it evidently damages the child's wellbeing, and the methods have never even been proven by credible research. Members of the ex-gay (anti-LGBT) movement argue that banning reparative therapy is an infringement on the rights to freedom of speech and religion, while parents following this movement have similar feelings and believe that putting their child through conversion therapy will help them be ridded of an "unwanted
To profess their heterosexual identity, boys enact the ritual of performative sex talk. With a profusion of sexual bravado, boys fight to one-up each other in their stories of sexual prominence and prosperity. Pascoe states that “expressing heterosexual desire establishes a sort of baseline masculinity” (87), in part to distance themselves from the feminine identity of a “fag,” but also to establish masculine dominance. These discussions center around how these boys are able to enact their subjectivity and control on the world around them, with women as the objects of their control and puppets of their desires. Furthermore, the masculine dominance is established through compulsive heterosexuality when boys engage in specific patterns of opposite-sex touching.
In the early 1900s, food safety was an incredibly unfamiliar and overlooked part of America’s food industry. Written by muckraker Upton Sinclair, The Jungle, was a controversial novel that depicted the harsh living and working conditions of immigrants working in the food industry. After the release of The Jungle, thousands of meat-eating Americans were horrified at what had been happening in factories. Disgusting yet accurate details presented in The Jungle were the basis for the creation of laws to stop food production from becoming so unsanitary. The Jungle follows a young Lithuanian immigrant named Jurgis Rudkis and his teenage wife Ona.
The LGBT community has faced endless oppression for identifying as something other than heterosexual and cisgender (identifying as the gender you were assigned at birth). This maltreatment ranges from giving a homosexual a dirty look for kissing their boyfriend or to the extreme act of declaring it as illegal across a whole country. When people think of the LGBT community, they think of it as only homosexuals. This community consists of those who love the same sex or identify as a gender other than the one on their birth certificate. This community is made up of those who society sees as different with
Introduction Sexual conversion therapy is defined as “a process through which reparative therapists believe they can and should make heterosexuals out of homosexuals” by Chuck Bright, award winning psychology author. He goes on to explain that this practice originates from the belief that homosexuality is sinful and immoral, which comes from traditional religious beliefs (Bright 472). Gregory M. Herek, professor of psychology at the University of California, notes in his article that the term homosexuality was first brought up in the early 1900s to define a mental illness. In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and the APA called for psychologists to work to remove the stigma historically associated with homosexuality (693). This explains how there is a long history of negative connotations surrounding homosexuality socially, and it was not until recent years when there were movements made to change this.
There is no narrator in The Jungle. It is written in third person, yet I feel like it would be Sinclair himself portraying as the narrator. The book is in chronological order for the most part but there are some flashbacks. One example of this was in the beginning of the book where Jurgis and Ona get married and then it goes back to the present. External Conflict Jurgis and his family are fighting against the corruption of society to try to make it in America.
The Jungle by Upton Sinclair Jr is about the life events of a lithuanian man named Jurgis Rudkus and his immigrant family coming to a new dream. The young and energetic Jurgis set his life coming into the United States with his family chasing the American Dream. When the family enters the states they find themselves working in physical labor jobs. The young Jurgis is confident that he can go forward in his new American life and can increase his financial situation, but it only leads him to failure. This failure would be remembered because it would leave Jurgis with sorrow and a new calling to life.
