This response clearly explains that rape is the worst thing that can happen to a woman because men see women as only her sexual purity, because it is the only part of her they care about. Claiming the rape is the worst thing that can happen to a woman but not a man maintains rape culture 's belief that men cannot be raped and that women solely exist for men’s pleasure. These beliefs are toxic to young adults and children because it encourages males to never speak up if they are raped, because they will be made fun of and called liars, and encourages females to believe that they are only worth something if a man says or believes so. Overall the beliefs that only women can be raped and that men never are can affect people for the rest of their lives and cause victims to suffer in
Many were still disappointed in the outcome of this tragedy. Even more so when news broke early this month that mother Stephanie Lopez would be released after only serving 15 years, 12 years shy of the sentence she received for her daughters torture and murder. Many already enraged at the thought, listened to a report from a cell mate of Stephanie’s say that she was asking for prayers for the court, her family, and herself and never once mentioning a prayer for Brianna. Stephanie has been released and has gone to live in a west Texas town. She will be on probation for two years where she cannot associate with other felons, consume drugs or
By examining the profanity, racial content, and references to rape, it’s deemed inappropriate for teens to read and is banned from several school libraries and lessons in school. Does the moral lesson of the story outweigh the so called inappropriate content of the book? Many people would agree with me if I said that To Kill a Mockingbird has a lesson in the story that every child should read and learn
In Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod provides a brief summary of how teens are affected by their peers ridiculing and judgement. *insert supporting (integrated) quote from the article* From this, it is clear to see that it isn’t harmless what is being done in these situations. Kids are going home from school feeling broken, embarrassed, and outcast by those who were once their friends. Anyone can tell stories about how high school is all a popularity contest of different cliques, but no one is ever really willing to talk about how extreme this contest really is. There have been several news articles chronicling the bullying of kids who are designated as ‘too intelligent’ and are thus being bullied because of it.
S.E. Hinton wrote this novel because all the books that she read about high school were unrealistic. She wanted to write a book that presents what really happens in high school. This novel displays consequences for the greaser's and the Soc's actions. Clearly, this novel should be removed from the "get rid of" list. There is now a major drug and alcohol problem in middle and high school.
With supporting evidence from Rebecca Solnit’s “The Longest War” which goes in depth about the unfair and unjust inequalities and brutality women face as being treated as a minority gender in the world of men. (Solnit 527) The message of this artifact is implying that women are incapable of success. Thus, perpetuating the social issue of sexism by assuming, and generalizing in the form of prejudice amongst an entire gender. Sexism is cruel, and undeserving for anybody let alone women.
The principal of Edna Elementary School told reporters that the unusualness of the color was against school policy (Svokos). While it might be shocking to see brightly dyed hair, the young girl’s hair color was for a good reason and beyond her control. Perhaps, the cruelest punishment that schools can give out is public humiliation. After school administrators dress coded her for having a skirt four inches above the knee as opposed to three inches, Washington Post reporter, Gail Sullivan, described when a new student, Miranda Larkin, was subjected to wear red sweatpants and a humongous, bright yellow T-shirt. Even Oakleaf High School’s intention of this outfit was to shame the wearer.
A common misconception is that women are a distraction to men due to sexual tension and will distract men from their duties, this ‘distraction’ may also lead to rape due to temptation. Women having experienced rape in the past caused by ‘sexual tension’. An example of the opposition 's argument is that women have been raped by their superiors and were told that if they turn in their rapist they will get in more trouble for underage drinking and their rapist will not get prosecuted for the crime they have committed (Moritz). The opposing side’s point is that the men will become distracted from their duties because of women. The opposition also argues that women becoming a distraction is why they should not be allowed to participate in combat; to prevent distraction and by choosing inequality the opposition can accomplish
In addition, men are messy and lazy and women are the opposite (Brewer n.d.). However, since both men and women have broken out of these stereotypes, in my opinion, discrimination and stereotyping among gay men are very much prevalent and are worse in our society nowadays. They experience unrelenting hatred from most heterosexuals, especially men. As a matter of fact, they are viewed as weaklings since they masculine enough compared to men. We can all see how gay men are not
As I continued reading Colonize This! I found a section of this book that talks about women of color facing racism in their communities. The racism section captured my attention because it is also giving examples of women who resist racism in their belonging spots. I think it is great to read about those women who suffer racism because. In addition, all the people know that there are now many laws had been issued to protect women’s rights.
Otherwise, I would be only adding to the issue and deepen the negative health impact of intimate violence’s victim. I also may communicate in open talk, provide references to support groups and access to shelter, and psychological
Another fact I thought was fascinating was that one in every six men said they would commit rape if they would be guaranteed to get away with it. This to me, is just utterly disturbing. To think that there are that men out there who would do this to women honestly scares me. I never imagined it to be one out of every six guys, which I found very alarming.
Define the many stereotypes within the movie and how those stereotypes reinforce inappropriate behaviors. There are many Stereotypes portrayed in the movie. The main one is the misconception that men have about women who work at the mine and they treat and call them by all the nasty names. But what is pitiful and sad is the complicity of the authorities of the company who tolerate such kind of conduct by men against women and do not take any action to stop it. I felt through the movie
Victims are often silenced and told that telling law enforcement will only create more of a problem for them because prostitution is against the law. In most cases, no one steps forward to get their traffickers in jail. The feeling most girls have is turning there pimp in, means turning themselves in. In other cases, many get attached to their pimp and develop dysfunctional relationships that make them scared to come out and tell law enforcement. “Traffickers also play into the narrative by telling victims, who are exploited for sex, theyĺl threaten to call the police and report them for prostitution if they push back” (Alvarez 2).
