HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL BACKGROUND Most religions of the world have different views regarding the moral issues that arise from people's sexuality in society and in human interactions. Each major religion has developed moral codes covering issues of sexuality, morality, ethics etc. These moral conducts seek to regulate the situations which can give rise to sexual significance and to influence people's sexual activities and practices. Sexual morality is a wider concept and varies from time to time and between cultures. Sexual norms and standard of sexual activities can be associated to religious beliefs, or social and environmental conditions.
Our different values and beliefs specifically, on marriage and religion demonstrate how relationships are different and have changed. This is due to values within a society having major influences on relationships. People’s different values on marriage and religion throughout the Victorian Era and the Roaring twenties explains why relationships are
However, Freud provides no proof for his theories. Other theories of classical conditioning claim that many homosexuals are rewarded for homoerotic behavior, therefore becoming conditioned to continue these behaviors. This also has a lack of evidence and is disproved by the fact that many cultures praise homosexual acts in men, but the percent of the population identifying as homosexual is the same across all cultures, regardless of whether they honor, punish, or act neutrally towards homosexual behaviors. Although Freud focuses on the “the psychical processes connected with” the origin of homosexuality, he still recognizes the “organic factor” contributing to homosexuality. Existing evidence points to the prevalence of biological
In ancient times, which in this analogy will be referred to as the shadows on the wall in Plato’s cave, women were seen as inherently inferior to men, and their only role was to get married and have children. Men owned women, they were passed down from their father’s possession to their husband’s possession, as symbolized in the traditional isle-walking during marriage, and dowries almost always being needed for marriage. The old sentiment was, that nobody wanted previously “used” property. In addition, because there was no contraception and heritage decided your level of respect in the community, virginity was a guaranteed paternity test. But of course, all these reasons for the invention of virginity pale in comparison to religion.
I could assume that she would appreciate this story greatly, since the gender-role of the decision making has flipped especially. It is very rare that a king would ever give his wife, the queen, the full authority of making a decision this major. I also enjoyed the irony on how the knight’s punishment was practically the opposite of the crime he committed. He raped a woman, giving no disregard to consent nor what maiden wanted or desired and his punishment how was to search for what women truly want most in the world. Being in a more patriarchal society, it shows that the majority of men didn’t really notice their status over their females since the idea of women wanting power was unthought of until he was told by the older lady.
Freud allows that women might serve one other function; that of a maternal figure. In this way, Freud does not even afford women the chance to be fully autonomous, complete individuals, as he describes their children as “part of [woman] which had been separated from her” (Freud 79). This insinuation that women are merely extensions of their children is not surprising coming from someone that blatantly refers to women as the “sexual objects” of men throughout his very scant mentions of the female gender. In fact, Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s
Social representations describe social identity of a group, that is, “its shared beliefs about its fundamental conditions and ways of existence and reproduction. Different types of ideologies are defined by the kind of groups that 'have' an ideology, such as social movements, political parties, professions, or churches, among others.” (Van Dijk, 2006, p.116). Both personal ideologies and collective group ideologies may influence discourse but latter shapes the former. Groups may include people who are unmarried or married but childless etc…When analyzing spiritual healers advertisements here show that the problems highlighted affect these collective groups and how members of the society perceive them. Examples include, ‘Aulaad ka na hona’ (couples without children), ‘Aulaad ka hona, hokay mar jana’ (Child is born but dies after sometime).
According to Marilyn Monroe, “We are all born sexual creatures,thank God, but it's a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.” People now a day do not know the true and important meaning of sex. They see sex only as a pleasure. They do not know the difference between sex with love and without love for many people sex is sex. They interpret sex as the most fun you can do without laughing. We individuals should know the different consequences before doing sex.
Along with topics such as race, religion and class, gender has become a commonly discussed topic in sociology. With this comes the discussion of transgenderism and gender identity. Progressive movements and organisations such as third-wave feminism and the United Nations actively support progressive gender theory, pushing for laws regarding the rights of those who don’t conform to a gender binary. The field of gender theory discusses a multitude of topics, with the major subjects being the difference between sex and gender and the social construction of gender. Modern sociology states there is a difference between sex and gender – defining sex as “the biological categorisation based on reproductive organs” and gender as a “social classification based on on’s identity, presentation of self, behaviour and interaction with others” (Crossman, 2017).
VICTOR HUGO. THE human world starts from the men and women. Men and women both are equally important for the creation of the human world. If one is missing then we cannot imagine the human world. But women are suppressed by the men from the ancient time in many countries and they have very limited rights to live in that world which is made by them.
