  • Antisocial Personality - 1,602 words
    Antisocial Personality The Antisocial Personality is (APD) is a serious disorder that affects many males and cause a great threat to families, friends, and even complete strangers. Most personality disorders may cause an inconvenience to a person▓s family and friends, but usually harm themselves more than others. Antisocial Personality Disorder contrasts from other personality disorders because the defining trait is a predatory attitude toward other people (Smith, 1999). ⌠They have a chronic indifference to and violation of the rights of one▓s fellow human beings.■ (Alterman; Cacciola; McDermott; Mulholland; Newman; & Rutherford, 2000). A common tendency of those with ...

  • Liberal Vs Marxist Feminism - 2,075 words
    ... r state that keeping mommy home is not an excuse, for many women are forced to take lower paid jobs with much heavier physical load in order to provide for their children. In the past, it was very clearly defined that office was man's job and home was women's place. Industrial revolution and technological changes forced men to use women out in the workplace. I don't think that a traditional woman of the past would make such transition. Instead, wars, diseases, poverty, labor shortages, and other influences made it necessary for many women to work. I think that our society still considers that woman's place is in her home. Why? I may think so, because women, who make up over one half o th ...

  • Make Prostitution Legal - 1,238 words
    Make Prostitution Legal Prostitution Theory 101 by Yvonne Abraham with Sarah McNaught Few things have divided feminists as much as the sex industry. Theorists who agree on a vast swath of issues -- economic equality, affirmative action, even sexual liberation -- often find themselves bitterly opposed over pornography and prostitution. Most 19th-century feminists opposed prostitution and considered prostitutes to be victims of male exploitation. But just as the suffragette and temperance movements were bound together at the turn of the century, so too were feminist and contemporary moral objections to prostitution. Women, the argument went, were repositories of moral virtue, and prostitution ...

  • Pornography - 1,229 words
    Pornography Pornography, otherwise defined as vulgarity and obscenity, is an issue that has and will continue to call upon much debate. While there are many people who see pornography as degrading, sinful, and disgusting, there is also a large amount of people who see it as a turn on, a form of sexual expression, and entertainment. Webster's Dictionary defined pornography as merely "the depiction of erotic behavior (as in pictures or writing) intended to cause sexual excitement." Yet there is still the everlasting question which is "does pornography serve a real purpose, and if so what purpose it that?" continues. I happen to acknowledge pornography with only a few minor glitches. I don't be ...

    ... s abuse. "We see boys imitating pornography. We see the average age of rapists going down. We are beginning to see gang rapes in elementary schools committed by elementary school age boys imitating pornography." (Stan p, 28) The number of rapes and the age at which rapes are committed might be positively correlated with the amount of pornography out there. Nevertheless, in my opinion, this correlation does not necessarily mean causation. I do not feel that pornography itself leads men, boys, or others to rape and sexually violate women. I feel that it is the ways in which pornography is so easily assessable, and the way young boys are taught to look at it. There is also the question of h ...

  • Sex In Society - 1,901 words
    Sex In Society Sex plays a major role in today's society. From television, radio, music, and advertisements, to video games, the Internet, and even art and pictures, all forms of media use sex to help sell their products. With the public being exposed to so many different types, the overuse and exploitation of sex is common. Is sex a useful tool, or a ploy to get the attention of the public? Before discussing sex in the media, one must understand why it has come to be that people use sex as a gimmick. The writing of modern history has resulted in a viewpoint that is nothing short of a stag party. The history of women is ignored, hushed up, and censored in the most literal sense of the term. ...

  • The Antipornography Feminist Movement - 2,171 words
    ... First Amendment. Unfortunately, as powerful as most of these statistics are, the majority of feminists will not budge in their fights against conservative attempts to help moral material in this country. Unfortunately, most of the feminists have lost track of their purpose in my opinion. I feel that they are institutions created to protect various aspects of womens rights. I personally think that they are just wrong for ignoring the fact that there are real victims that may or may not care about the way that interest groups battle for their good. They only know the reality of what a sex crime has done to them. These victims know that they have been robbed of their dignity and safety. Th ...

  • The Point Of Pornography On The - 1,488 words
    ... The Point of Pornography on the Internet Why is the Internet so enticing for pedophiles? " Its created easily accessible stimulation for child molesters. Anybody can download pictures in complete anonymity. They do not have to make any kind of human contact" (Trebilcock 102). There may be definitions to describe pornography, but they do not truly examine the destruction, degradation, and the pathetic nature of the concept. The word pornography is more destructive than one might believe. It would fit perfectly into Sonia Maasik and Jack Solomons essay entitles "Cheap Thrills". The essay talks about the influencing images of music, video and television. The computer is becoming more and m ...

    Violence and Pornography Pornography -- Sex or Subordination? In the late Seventies, America became shocked and outraged by the rape, mutilation, and murder of over a dozen young, beautiful girls. The man who committed these murders, Ted Bundy, was later apprehended and executed. During his detention in various penitentiaries, he was mentally probed and prodded by psychologist and psychoanalysts hoping to discover the root of his violent actions and sexual frustrations. Many theories arose in attempts to explain the motivational factors behind his murderous escapades. However, the strongest and most feasible of these theories came not from the psychologists, but from the man himself, as a te ...

What isnt known to the general public is that during the making of the movie, she was hypnotized to suppress the natural gagging reaction, was tortured when caught trying to escape, and also held at gun-point by her boss, who threatened her with death (Itzin 22).

    World Mythology Compare or contrast two major female fertility deities as to character, activities and role in the myth. In the myths of the ancient world, a great deal of importance is placed on the rhythmical cycle of birth, maturity, death and rebirth. Ancient agrarian people observed the world around them, and from this observation they realized that their lives as well as every other living thing on this planet was a part of an intricate continuing cycle. Everything withered and died, but not before reproducing and continuing the cycle of life. Since female plants and animals were directly responsible for the birth of new life, people worshipped female deities to ensure that the earthly ...
