Jalal Bennett English III Pd.4 How The HIV/ AIDS Outbreak In The 1980’s Relates To The Crucible Typically people haven’t been known to deal with things they are uncertain of very well. The aids hysteria is very similar to the Salem witch trials because both cases were caused by fear. The people didn’t know how to deal with the situation. Also in both cases extreme measure were taken to keep the witches and those with aids away from the rest of society so the people who had the disease or problem wouldn’t give it to those who didn’t. Many people were also accused and given false labels during both of these times, innocent people were accused of being witches, and given the label a witch, and during the aids hysteria people were considered gay or a drug user if you had aids, even if you weren’t.
If you decide to have sex during this time, it is really important that a condom is used or it is likely the medicine won’t have worked. How do you prevent Chlamydia? The only 100% effective method in preventing STDs is abstinence, but if you’re sexually active, the best way to avoid the disease is to be mutually monogamous with someone who has tested negative for Chlamydia. Condoms also give good protection against the disease. What’s the worst that could happen?
One method they use is an affirmative action policy. Implementing such policy in a state will help reduce the problem in a wide view; however, within the society, people will always suffer racism in small matters. This means people will be declined social issues at the community level, despite the implementation of the policy at the national level. Likewise, many people support the use of ethics in controlling racism and yet they do not consider the practice at the community level. Racism starts at the ground level, limiting people from benefiting from the social benefits.
Many people believe that people shouldn’t take any kind of drug to get rid of depression. I disagree with those people, I believe people should be able to take antidepressants to help them better themselves and hopefully help them have a better life. There are many reasons why I think people should be able to take antidepressants. One major reason is because I take them and I believe that they have helped me a lot, maybe even to the extreme where they have saved my life. Before I started taking antidepressants I was very depressed, suffered from social anxiety and I felt that life didn’t really have a meaning for me.
A Critique of William Bennett’s “Against Gay Marriage” The issue of homosexuals in our society is becoming more of a debate. The debate is no longer whether we should accept them, but rather, should they be legally recognized. Gay marriage should not be legalized because of its effect it would have on society. William Bennett’s article “Against Gay Marriage” was originally published in the Washington Post and highlights the negative effects of gay marriage on our society. Bennett wrongfully believes that homosexual and heterosexual unions are not comparable; however, if we change the definition of marriage, our society’s understanding of marriage would be irreconcilably ruined.
By letting teens try and figure out sex on their own only increases the risk of STDs and pregnancy. Not being informed is worse than being informed and knowing the safest way to approach the situation. Through Jane Friedman’s article “Do abstinence-only programs discourage teen sex” on CQ Researcher, one can learn that the sexual debate should be given to the comprehensive sexual education side. There are too many problems with the abstinence-only program and almost every argument on their side can be argued. Comprehensive sexual education is the best way to reduce the number of STD’s and teen pregnancy in the United
We all know of someone who has it or heard about it on TV. But I don’t think everyone realizes how dangerous these diseases can be. Indeed, it is shocking how many lives have been cut short, AIDS is one of the most dangerous because you can only control it but not cure it, AIDS patients will have to take medication for life and any interruption would give the virus a chance of coming back. Even though the disease affects African American males mostly, it does not discriminate on races, ages, or gender. The spread of HIV could be done by: sharing used drug needles or other equipment with any infected person, having unprotected sex, or any kind of drug use that would affect your
Also, person who had been treated for chlamydia previously still runs the risk of being re-infected with the disease. Having any STDs, including Chlamydia, also increases the risk for HIV due to the sores and bleeding associated with their symptoms. While using male condoms will reduce the risk of infection, abstinence is the only truly effective way to prevent Chlamydia and all other
As the components of the body’s immune system, the cells have white blood cells, and are responsible for defending the body against any infection or virus. HIV doesn’t just destroy the most important component of the body’s defense, but the body struggles with the virus to sustain within the body, and within the host system. “ The disruptive effects however; cause the immune system to fail in differentiating foreign bodies that it even attacks its own components leading to the development of AIDS” (AIDS.gov,2009). Various ways HIV can be transmitted When someone gets HIV the person is at high rate to get AIDS later on in their life. HIV is the first stage, and AIDS is the last stage of this horrible disease.
It is important to practice safe sex with all partners, especially if you or they have high-risk sexual behaviors. STDs is a serious illness that requires treatment.
