After reading this chapter of her rape the question of should or shouldn't sexual assault scenes be told in novels, there is two sides to this argument. People who think it should, because having these scenes in book could give the reader a better understanding of what it felt like, and could even give victims the support they need to be speak out. Then there's a group that think it shouldn't, because that argument means nothing because rape victims who read these stories will only be offend by them and trigger their emotions they have not let out, and that having these sexual assaults only make the assault more and more socially acceptable. These arguments make it clear that sexual assault scenes should not be in books, because they are less effective when nobody
8TH Amendment The 8th Amendment was formed to ensure that punishment for a crime was not cruel or unusual. It also has a clause for those with mental illness so that they will not face the death penalty for committing a crime that a sane person would commit. And those under the age of 18 would not face the death penalty. Since the 8th Amendment was attached to the Bill of Rights in 1791 it has taken on a different meaning for the accused of breaking the law and prisoner of today. In this paper we will look at several cases in which the 8th Amendment has been used in my opinion unethically to justify everything from gender reassignment surgery to claiming that one was mentally insane in order to get out of facing the death penalty.
The major way in which Atwood challenges assumptions about gender in "Rape Fantasies" is that she reveals rape to be more than just and act of forced sexual interourse. For Atwood rape is fundamentally a power struggle. The struggle occurs when an individual exploits another 's physical and psychological vulnerability. The person suffers not only physical, but also mental injury. For Atwood power is the main objective of rape, not sexual gratification.
Knox was pressured by police and detectives to accuse another person for the murder of Meredith Kercher. She was also pressured by police into lying and saying that she was in the cottage at the time of the death of Meredith Kercher. Amanda even faced some consequences for not lying to the police and give a false confession. For not giving into the pressure by police Amanda Knox wasted four years of her life in prison. Later on Amanda was tricked into signing a document given by her interrogators stating that she did commit the crime.
Genre Piece 3- Newspaper A rape case resulting in a cold hit is described in the newspaper. In it a woman named Jenny Jones was sexually assaulted 20 years ago and has never received justice until now. Her rape was a cold hit along with several other victims. Jones’s rape case had gone cold because her rape kit had been left to gather dust and was deemed no longer recent enough to bother with. This displays the need for better testing of these rape kits, because if they do not get tested within a timely fashion, many others could become victim to the same rapist just like in the newspaper.
I believe the intentional torts these aids committed are assault and battery, false imprisonment and fraud. Assault is a threat being given verbally and battery is the actual physical harm to the person. False imprisonment is when the patient is getting hold against her own will. With this case, I’m sure the patents weren’t doing what the wanted to do which cased the
In the author’s opinion, guys are the ones controlled by their desires instead of controlling their desires. Paglia continues on by saying, “The police and I– have the right to say to you, ‘You stupid idiot, what the hell were you thinking?’”(145). This might be possible for the person who left car key on the hood, but it is very inappropriate and inhumane thing to say to a rape victim. The victim never gave permission to the rapist; going to someone’s room does not mean that she is agreeing to being raped. In my assumption, the author must have made this comparison due to the fact that she was never raped before, which makes her unqualified to make a comparison of such grief to a simple robbery.
(Other than any incidents already mentioned,) have you been forced or coerced to engage in unwanted sexual activity by; someone you didn’t know before, a casual acquaintance OR Someone you know well" (Victimization Surveys, 1998). “Followed by question 43b, Did any incidents of this type happen to you and question 43c, how many times” (Victimization Surveys, 1998). In the NCVS-2 Crime Incident Report, Question 29 asks, "How were you attacked, any other way” (Victimization Surveys, 1998). “Possible responses to question 29 include raped, tried to rape, and sexual assault other than rape or attempted rape” (Victimization Surveys, 1998). “Question 31 asks, what were the injuries you suffered, if any anything else" (Victimization Surveys, 1998).
Though well-established, the two tests are always challenged. One of the reasons is due to the discrepancy between the legal insanity and medical insanity: legal insanity and medical insanity only partially overlap, but a legal insanity is not necessarily a medical insanity, vice verses. For example, we might use the discrepancy to criticize the mandatory hospitalization for the insane murderer. After being diagnosed as insane, the murderer would not be responsible for his act, but instead, he would be sent to the hospital for psychological treatment. Nevertheless, suppose the murderer only possesses the disorder that only exists in legal term, what treatments can doctor adopt to cure him if there is even no such disease exists?
Her first, if you would call it “victim” or in this case victims, were two fourteen-year old boys who she framed for supposedly raping her. Since humiliating the two boys and having them sent off to a “house of correction”(77) wasn’t enough for Cathy, she drives her Latin teacher, Mr.Grew to commit suicide on an altar. However, this is not the last of Cathy’s manipulative ways. This is only the beginning. A few years later Cathy has failed to runaway from her
