    There were many key themes in the chapter reading that interested me. With a chapter title of Gender and Sexuality, who wouldn’t be interested? 😉 I also thoroughly enjoyed all of the links provided to us on […]

      I like that you brought up the phenomenon of woman still have the expectation of doing the house chores and child care while both parents tend to work nowadays. It reminds me of the article I read of how parents tend to care about their sons being intelligent and their daughters being skinny. Stereotypes and expectations of girls versus boys is changing now, so much that the way our system works nowadays is a part of it, but yet theres still old habits of stereotyping.

      • You’re right… Old habits are hard to break! I like how you pointed out the sterotypes of young boys being smart but young girls being obedient and skinny. How about we all do our absolute best. Let’s all work hard at work, around the house, and to be healthy.

      Domestic abuse is sickening to me. I have had friends go through it with their boyfriends and have been scared out of their minds to leave them because of what they could do. I could not imagine what I would do if it were to happen to me. I hope one day we can put all the scum that abuse women behind bars.

      • As a criminal justice major, I couldn’t agree with you more. I wish we could put them all away as well but I don’t see that happening! 🙁 I’ve known a few victims of domestic abuse and it’s quite challenging to deal with. Leaving and staying are both extremely hard things to do.

    • Great point about immigrants coming over believing it’s the right thing to do and that it should be done. I’m not exactly sure what should be done about it though. I haven’t really thought about it before but I guess we may have to let them do what they believe with their families. On the other hand, our judicial system could see it as child abuse, child endangerment, and along the lines of torture.

    • Thank you for the compliments Srikar! I just wish that we would all be more understanding and accepting of everyone. Equality and non-judgement is something that I wish for our great nation! What would you change or not change in regards to gender and sexuality, Srikar?

    • As a female, I completely agree. The world is terrifying but I refuse to walk around in fear because that’s no way to live. I’m very cautious and nosey about what’s going on around me but I don’t want to walk around scared. I don’t understand how people could treat other humans the way that they do sometimes. Like you said, how can people sell and treat humans as if they have no worth? Females are not sexual objects and deserve the same respect as men.
