I believe that restricting hate speech can influence violence because the public would learn to care for one another. Although the first amendment protects freedom of speech, there should be limitations. The hate speech can turn into dangerous speech as it raises bigger ethical issues because it is conveyed publicly and loudly. Ethical issues affect us all in society not just the person being victimized. If we had restrictions in how people express themselves about others, people will tend to be more careful about what they say or publish on social media.
Although, I do believe adjusting to what everyone agrees is acceptable would be difficult. I believe laws should be made to protect people’s safety without jeopardizing people from living a happy lifestyle. Karl Marx articulates that social change occurs when society in itself moves to society for itself. Society in itself is described as a group that has common interested but is unconscious of the common interest and society for itself is a group that has common interested and is actively advocating and working towards common goals. I think laws should be open to change with society, humans are ever changing and the laws should recognize that and reconsider what is deviant and what is a shift in
Lastly, I will be explaining how using a sociological perspective can help to think outside of gender codes and realize that it is not something that should be seen as normal. Advertisements paint a picture of how individuals are supposed to act and how they can show that they are either masculine or feminine. The advertisements that were shown in The Codes of Gender: Identity
If he wasn’t wearing the Royal’s jacket, he would have been a different person. From this, we learn that it is important to be ourselves and not have labels define you we are. It also teaches us that we have to be careful of labels and not to associate with bad influences such as gangs, because they are what people will see you as. Instead, we must avoid labels and develop our own character. There are several events in this story that demonstrate this theme.
In the text we learn that Mill perceives that the actions that individuals take shouldn’t be as free as the opinions people have, and states that both should be limited when they would cause harm to others and that the human “must not make himself a nuisance to other people” (1, Mill). For Mill individuality is vital to the development of one self. The biggest problem for Mill was that individuality was not respected in the society, and was rather shunned or looked down upon. He then claims that children should be educated by the knowledge and experience of adults but the children should also be given the choice to understand it however they see fit. He then says “one whose desires and impulses are not his own, has no character, no more than a steam-engine has a character.
All the symbols in this video prove that society is making people follow rules, instead of them taking their own path. The symbols show how it affects people, and what it does to the state of mind of someone. The objects/symbols that the girls push aside/go against show how people should not follow anyone or any
Fear is the most powerful emotional stimulator of action people have and by speaking we can disappear our fears.

The self is destroyed by gendered, racial, and class-based stereotypes that are non-natural, emotionally, physically, and fiscally unattainable. The stereotypes are perpetuated because they are not broadly questioned and are persistent. The effects of gender stereotypes in the media to identify are addressed. Literature Review According to Taylor (2003), the society directs individual’s behavior and shapes their lives. Some believe that they choose their actions based on their unique features, but Taylor argues against that by saying that the behavior is not by natural occurrence, but it is socialized.
This should not be the case but it is. People need it to matter to them. The way we stop history from repeating itself is by not letting things go. We use our medium, our art, our ability to connect with the world to hold people accountable and to never let them
Given the fact that the media institutions use sexuality and violence as a marketing instrument in order to attract more viewers or consumers, it means that the media companies are trying to market themselves or their products at the expense of ignoring business ethics. In my opinion the government should impose rules and regulations on the media channels to end this problem and in order help the parents who suffers from this problem with their
