Domestic Violence in the Native American Culture When mentioning the term domestic violence, physical violence usually comes to mind for many people, including things such as a broken nose or a black eye. While these things are frightening and true forms of abuse, there is far more to domestic violence than what meets the eye. Domestic violence can present its self in several other forms including emotional, verbal, and even sexual abuse. 1Domestic violence can be a critical issue that has a negative impact on four out of five Native American women and men in the United States in their lifetime according to indianlaw.org ( Walker 1). Being a Native American woman who has observed domestic violence as a child and became a victim as a wife, later on, I feel that it has unfortunately given me a deeper perspective of what domestic violence victims endure.
Throughout history, disputes and tensions between law enforcement officials and communities of minorities have endured hostility and violence between each other. Racial profiling has become a “hot topic” for researchers as well as for politicians and by now it is likely that most citizens are at least aware of the common accusations of racial bias pitted against law enforcement (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Communities of color are being discriminated against and racially profiled by white police officers for any suspicion of criminal activities. It has been widely assumed by policy makers and citizens alike that allegations of racial profiling are mostly associated with the policing practices of white officers and their treatment of racial and ethnic minorities (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Also, individuals of minority descent will certainly recognize that they are being racially profiled during a stop that is being conducted by a white police officer.
New Orleans has been facing violence problems for many years. Some of the most common crimes are rape, murder, armed robbery, non-negligent manslaughter, and aggravated assault. It appears like some people have gotten used to seeing so much violence and some have even come up with ways to remember the names of the victims. The question that many people ask themselves is, “why is violence increasing?” According to Patrick Fagan propensity to crime develops in three stages associated with psychological and sociological factors. The first stage comes from early infancy; meaning that if the child was not given love and instead was rejected it will have a huge impact in the future.
Parents forcing their children to participate child beauty pageants is obviously coming from dismal, over educated, upper middle class individuals who have never been inebriated by the spotlight. Spotlights, the runway and overwhelming applauses are what motivate young children to take an interest, despite the fact that parents likewise have a tendency to be a piece of this excursion also. Reckless parents compelling their child to this contest and obliging them to be the winner in any way for money and fame. Child beauty pageant is a type of child abuse that make children have less confidence. The environment the child is
INTRODUCTION Did you know that LGBTQ youth are twice as likely as their peers to be kicked, shoved, and physically assaulted? On top of that, 92% of LGBTQ youth hear negative messages about having a different sexuality. They feel unsafe and are physically harmed. This happens to people all over the world, and as horrible as it is, many, many people suffer from it every single day of their lives! I want to bring this to light and tell you about what LGBTQ people have been subjected to throughout time, and what they have to deal with on a day to day basis.
In addition to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety, the American Psychological Association stress that many trafficking victims struggle to regain their independence after years of sex trafficking and require help finding housing and jobs. The majority of survivors have depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder or a more severe diagnosis: Disorders of extreme stress. In addition to these diagnoses, many victims of sex trafficking also have secondary psychological issues such as alcohol and drug abuse plus concurrent medical illnesses, which add to the psychological burden that sex trafficked victims endure. Mental health interventions often focus on identifying potential victims in healthcare centers and public places such as shopping malls. The problem, however, is that once a sex traffic person is rescued there are no prospective clinical trials to guide therapy, oftentimes by default, trauma-based cognitive behavioral therapy is used, such approaches may not be effective for those with disorders of extreme stress not otherwise
Gender stereotyping in advertisements is an issue as it results in negative effects on both the society and the women in the community. In a way, stereotyping in advertisements describe on how women should be and how they should look. The society is affected because what people see in the media will influence their preconception, attitude, values and behaviours (Nassif and Gunter, 2008: 752). Thus, stereotyped advertisements will incorporate stereotypical values and behaviour in the society, especially for the young children who learns through what
Everyone knows that children love to dress up, but do fake tans, pounds of makeup, fake eyelashes, skimpy outfits and fake teeth take dress up too far? While poofy ball gowns and princess-like makeup comes to mind, the harsh reality of beauty pageants is making young children look and act like adults. In fact, Collective shouts wants to highlight dangers of beauty pageants sexualizing young children (Freymark). Little girls should be building puzzles or playing outside or having tea parties, not strutting down catwalks with orange makeup and revealing clothing, parading like show ponies (Meridith). Susanna Freymark adds “teaching little girls to preen and strut, to look sexy for judges, to emphasize sexual behaviors is totally inappropriate for
More information and resources need to be widely available not only to those who were raped as males but everyone. Without it many will suffer in silence, bottling up what happened to them, turn to substance abuse to cope with mental health disorders. All of this may lead to the feeling of being trapped, hopeless, or alone. Leading them to an even worse state of mental health, which they may try to escape by suicidal thoughts or actions. Males suicide rates have been extremely high, in 2009, in Canada alone there were 2989 reported cases of male suicide.
Dysphoria is something that makes a non-binary person feel like they will never be right, safe or comfortable. For a transgender or gender nonconforming person, public restrooms can be not only uncomfortable and anxiety triggering, but extremely unsafe for people who have a different physical sex than their gender, a study in 1998 showed that 20% of all murders, and 40% of all police initiated violence (in the United-States) was bias-motivated against LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer, Intersex and Asexual) people; another study showed that 41% of transgender people participating in said study had attempted suicide, 55% had been harassed or bullied in school because of their gender identity, and 61% had been physically (64% sexually)
