While the portrayal inaccurately portrayed the tenets of the lifestyle, many people watched that movie with gross interest into how it all works. Defense of the lifestyle by people who had never been exposed to it made me chuckle. The biggest defense conveyed two consenting adults who understand the terms of the relationship. So, because it is portrayed as romantic and sexy, it is not considered deviant which highlights time and place application and response application of the Labeling Theory. Conclusively, secret deviance is an outlier of the Labeling theory and is consistent with the tenets of that theory and the
This concludes how Cosby legitimately possessed drugs at the time with the intention to have sex with these women. The new source also provides reassurance to its readers because despite the Cosby case lacking evidence for Bill Cosby to be prosecuted, he still has a chance of facing serious consequences. According to the CNN article, “Bill Cosby won’t face prosecution for most of the rape allegations against him. But he could still face serious consequences” (1). This meaning, although Cosby will not be receiving prosecution for his crime, he is still prone to other types of punishments.
Violent video games have been blamed for everything from bullying to school shootings. Critics of these video games believe they cause people to commit violent acts in real life. These critics, mainly comprised of parents and other responsible adults, don’t agree with what the video games portray. Others say the video games cause less violence and are an outlet for anger and stress. Although violent video games have violent actions in them, teenagers should be able to play violent video games because there isn’t enough evidence to prove they make teens more aggressive, it could prevent violence, and violent video games are a fun and relaxing way to relieve stress and anger.
Some girls who sent out their nudes to their boyfriend reacted, “They felt betrayed, but few seemed all that surprised that their photos had been passed around” (Rosin). It shouldn’t be a surprise if their pictures get sent around because when sending out the pictures they should know that anything can happen to those pictures. However, it becomes an issue when the nude pictures are send to a third person or used as a way to threaten others. I don’t think that it is wrong to send out nudes to each other, but it should be keep only between each other or else it becomes a problem, especially if it is used to violate the other person. Using the pictures to threaten people is completely different from the exchange of pictures between two people privately.
Guys tend to get rough, say vile things, and act inhumane when playing violent, FPS games. Perhaps because most players are male, they feel more comfortable speaking freely. However, the lack of adult supervision (regardless of gender) opens up the game audio often to include discourse that is specifically complaining about and disrespectful to women. While girls may prefer to retain the dream that guys are cute, helpful to their parents, and loving to animals and other people. Not all girls are attracted to immaturity and the false bravado shooting a TV screen brings out in young men.
Because many of the ideals in the man box are mostly about "not being like a girl", men can break free of the man box and feel free to live their own lives without being held down by a set of standards. In addition, women would no longer be stereotyped because while the man box is targeted towards men, it also indirectly targets women and stereotypes how women behave in society. If I were to make changes in socializing children, I would try to encourage boys and girls that it is fine to express emotions and that not everyone has to be strong or aggressive. Some people choose to be that way, but that should not mean everyone has to follow a set example. Another way for children to develop healthy qualities would be to not stereotype gender roles since they will always meet different people who live by different standards and not just one set
However, the Oceanian government did not cease to promote the belief that, “sexual intercourse was to be looked on as a slightly disgusting minor operation, like having an enema" (Orwell 69). The Party wished to disturb the public with such a description as part of their attempt to eradicate the sex instinct. Furthermore, the Party founded the Junior Anti-Sex League, focused specifically on making young women exhibit hatred for sexual intercourse not intended for reproduction. Although the PUWP did not attempt the exact same, it explicitly avoided discussions concerning any other aspect of sexual relations than reproduction. It was generally not a common topic of debate in any public setting.
Shame and embarrass is not an emotion many want to experience and to avoid shame people will not commit criminal activity as they do not want to be humiliated. Shaming affect the pride of criminals and when combined with other punitve measure can be effective, shaming punish criminals psychologically. The fact is no punishment will be suitable for all individuals, as not even capital punishment is proven to be a deterrence to all. I think shaming will be especially beneficial in punishment of sexual
The author explains how a marital contract should not be given to those who cannot fulfill it, such as children and family (30). He then claims that homosexuals can fulfill said license, but unwittingly contradicts himself by saying, “But it isn’t necessary to prove that homosexuals or lesbians are less--or more--able to form long-term relationships than straights for it to be clear that at least some are.” (30). This clearly shows how disconnected the author is from his audience. This is a persuasive article, attempting to sway people into believing that homosexual marriage should be legal, yet he assumes his audience feels it apparent that some homosexuals are capable of the commitment of marriage. He fails to acknowledge his own argument’s importance in favor of believing that his audience does not need
Another reason for cyber-harassment is people want to prove themselves and validate their popularity. Most people who cyberbully believe it is not a big deal and do not see the pain that they cause. Instead of empathizing with the victims being bullied, hurting others makes such people feel dominant. Moreover, the bullies, sometimes, believe that the more individuals they torment the more powerful they become. They can use any methods which may cause terrible damage for the sufferers’ mind, just to diminish the social status of whom they are bullying.
