August 7, 2011 JUS 110- Crime and Criminology Critical Feminist Theory VS Grauwiler and Mills A critical feminist views gender inequality as stemming from unequal power of men and women in a capitalist society, which leads to the exploitation of women by fathers and husbands. Under this system women are considered a commodity worth possessing like land or money. (Siegel 2010) In knowing this view we know that men feel that they have power over women since they are generally stronger they take advantage of this and try to control the women in their lives. Many times the control that they have over women is abusive. It is a known cultural difference that men usually dominate the world.
They all have different views of how they may affect society and other individuals around them but their end goal is the same. Source one and source three both believe men must take direct action In order to do so but source three believes that man often rushes into helping with the wrong solution, whilst source one believes the right answer just comes to mankind because of our original good nature and we do what we can to ease their suffering. Both of these sources are contradicted by source two. Even though the man in source two’s intention is to help out the world he is doing it an, an opposite way that source one and two would agree with. He decided that not taking any action is the best action.
Stereotypes related to gender are regularly portrayed in the media. Women are shown to be sexually desirable and attractive to men whilst men are often portrayed as powerful, strong and intelligent. These stereotypes puts pressure on males and females to conform and we are constantly shown what would happen if we did not conform to them. This is done through a process of scapegoating. The media will illustrate what types of behaviour are considered deviant.
Psychology If we were comparing Robert Pickton to the theories of some psychologists, like Sigmund Freud for example, would say that in Pickton’s case, his ID is a more dominant thing and that he has a constant urge to seek physical satisfaction. I would also describe him as being anal expulsive because he is defiant and reckless. I feel that he could also be a little impotent and unsatisfied in his life which would motivate him to seek the physical satisfaction that the ID demands or that he was lacking. I feel like there could be some unresolved anger with a woman figure from his past, which would explain
Johnson, “What Is This Thing Called Patriarchy?” discusses the social inequalities, privileges and oppression between men in women in today’s society and uses history to explain the present. The essay talks about America living in a patriarchic society because of this idea that men have between control and fear. They feel as they need to control everything and the fear of not having that control makes them even more controlling. Women tend to be devalued and discriminated because they are women. For many years women have been trying to gain more respect from other women but mostly men, so that they can be equal to them.
UNLEASH YOUR HERO By Tiffany Adams This “how-to” article is aimed towards a male audience in middle life. This population may read magazines such as Sports Illustrated or even Playboy. These magazines may objectify women and encourage such theories such as hegemonic masculinity, but they reach a wide male audience that has a huge impact on the issues of Gender Violence and thus deserve to be tapped. This article aims to motivate men to take a stance against Intimate Partner Violence, as activating bystanders even in a more passive role can only have a positive effect on society today. You can hear them arguing, again; but this time, there is an abrupt end to the conflict as one of them escalates
Men: Afflicted; Obsessed; Silently suffering. Society has always objectified women but as we move forward into a culture of masculinity, we see that men are plagued too. The obsessions can lead to extreme measures as seen in Ted Spiker’s article, “How Men Really Feel about Their Bodies,” where he argues that men in today’s society have grown equally concerned about their bodies and share common ideals are but are driven by different forces. Spiker goes beyond social silence and voices the “8 Fundamental Truths” that men need society to know about. Confidence, good looks, and health are motivational forces that feed the hunger for a better body (555).
Procrastination has been around as long as humankind has been existing, but the only deference is the way we are being punished. Back then people where looked at as sinners, and sloth, although; it is a negative punishment towards the results of procrastinating when it has a positive reaction as receiving a check, tax, food, and successful career. In my opinion, being a procrastinator is due to a psychological effect, due to experience as a student and an employee. Most people procrastinate because they are dealing with some type of issue or matter. (Fuschia Sirois pg35) In 2006..the university of Windsor in Ontario reported in a study of 254 adults that procrastinators had higher stress levels and more acute completed jobs in a timely manner.” This situation then affects a person’s health, creating anxiety, and stresses even more due to the facts that he or she is in a position where they have zero privacy to express themselves and from my opinion it can result in having a person becoming psychodynamic.
Likewise, while abuse disclosure is difficult for everyone, women report greater difficulty in naming the abuse, whereas men communicate that although they recognize abuse when it happens, they have a tendency to stay silent because it can feel emasculating to disclose (Powers et al. 2004). Another complex issue for men and women with disabilities is addressing abuse when the perpetrator is a family member or a friend who also provides personal assistance. Although many individuals have reported that their risk for abuse is lower when their provider is a family member or a friend, dealing with abuse when it arises in these relationships can be very difficult. Taken as a whole, the personal barriers that are the biggest impediments to addressing abuse include, most people don't believe that men
A person’s sexual orientation is sometimes sought as the full potential of a person, as if their orientation determines of what type of person they are. Many from the gay community find it difficult to be accepted in their community which makes it unable for them to reach their goal of the American dream, maintaining a stable job, having a nice home, having friends that are always there for you. Though it all begins from the workforce, trying to get a stable job that will help them reach their potential. Discrimination at the workforce also affects the society. The socio-economic inequalities get widened and social cohesion and solidarity are eroded.
