Angela Davis in her book, Are Prisons Obsolete?, argues for the overall abolishment of prisons. Amongst the significant claims that support Davis’ argument for abolition, the inadequacy of prison reforms stands out as the most compelling. Reform movements truthfully only seek to slightly improve prison conditions, however, reform protocols are eventually placed unevenly between women and men. Additionally, while some feminist women considered the crusade to implement separate prisons for women and men as progressive, this reform movement proved faulty as female convicts increasingly became sexually assaulted. Following the theme of ineffectiveness, the reform movement that advocated for a female approach to punishment only succeeded in strengthening
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
Adultery is every hard to defend because in most cultures or religions it’s socially or morally unacceptable, but The Storm challenges that position. An affair is normaly what ends relationships but for Calixta and Alcee, it makes them value their marriages like never before. Many people in today’s age
However, it does restrict men who are wanting to purchase sex. This concept is highly debated because if two adults are consenting to the transaction of money for sex, there is no reason it should be criminalized. This argument is further criticized by anti-prostitution activists that say it undermines gender equality and promotes the objectification of women (Glazer). These activists capitalize on the problems that harm reduction/elimination methods fail to absolve and argue for complete criminalization of all sex
All over the world, Transgender and others under the LGBTQ umbrella for gender identity encounter a large amount of controversy. I agree with this statement because of the inequality between transgendered individuals and cisgendered individuals. Bullying is a huge problem when it comes to Gender Identity; schools, workplaces and even public areas aren’t safe for queer people anymore due to the distaste that some people feel towards these individuals. In some states, schools and workplaces are banning bathrooms for these individuals and are forcing them to use the appropriate bathroom, or the bathroom of their birth gender. The military used to be a sanctuary for transgendered individuals because gender doesn’t necessarily matter in the military
In reality, a ruling in favor of Masterpiece Cakeshop would have the opposite effect. In an article from ThinkProgress, many amicus briefs filed in Masterpiece Cakeshop argue that if the bakery wins the case, the ruling would destroy religious freedom because allowing LGBTQ discrimination would open the door for discrimination against religious minorities, like Muslims and atheists. The Muslim community in America is already extremely vulnerable, in fact, according to the article, Muslims surpassed atheists as the least trusted religious minority in the United
That’s why BBC Radio banned a daytime airplay of this song, and the media and government demonized Sex Pistols as a threat to the society even though the song was a great hit. The song also expresses discontent and anxiety the young people in the UK had. The lyrics “there is no future in England’s dreaming” suggests that Britain should solve the current social problems for younger generation not clinging to its past
There are many negative beliefs towards the male gender because of the stereotypes society believes in. When people hear about a news of a rape incident between both genders, they automatically assume the female is the victim and the male is the offender. They make this assumption based on real statistics - since 99% of sex offenders are male and over 80% of the victims are female (sapac.umich.edu). For this reason, parents with daughters feel skeptical when their daughters is around a male since they believe she might be forced into sexual conducts. Society believe when males have a high tendency to feel sexual pleasure, they can not control themselves and will force another individual into sexual conducts in order to satisfy their urge.
Discrimination is an unseen weapon used by today 's generation. America herself has become extremely prejudice without acknowledging the consequences of her actions. Although America is not deliberately following the ways of her past, her uncanny behavior is only worsening the discrimination she swears to rid have herself of. Consequently speaking America has attempted to rid herself of her past misconceptions, she has mistakenly given her past discriminated victims more rights than everyone else. Living in this beautiful country I have come to realize that our government feels as if they need to make up for our past political parties mistakes.
Issues like these may well be controversial, being based on an individual 's creed and principles. After researching for months about homosexuality, I came to a conclusion that the homosexuals should be treated no less than the heterosexuals. What the antagonists of homosexuality say are: it is unnatural; it is against the divine will of God, it runs counter to the tradition and more. Occasionally someone would bring up a "real" problem but most of the claims by the opposing side stand on the basis of a highly subjective valuation. As a result, they had to go to great lengths to expound on their position.
