Overall, I received an A on my research proposal and my professor thought that I did a great job. However, if my professor was to give me feedback and ask me if I were to implement social forces into my paper to make it better I would use Sexual orientation and Social class. Inmate-on-inmate sexual coercion is an unexplored topic within correctional facilities, especially concerning female inmates: Women prisoners may often face challenges that can affect their health. Sexual orientation can be viewed as a factor in prisons that has an effect on women's health issues. To be specific, I believe women are more prone to become bisexual or lesbians within a prison because they are placed in an environment where the likelihood of being raped or

The topic studied in this naturalistic observational research study was called “pick me up.” The purpose of this study was to place a note card on the ground labeled “pick me up” and observe the type of person that picked the card up. The research question was “Which gender will pick up the card more and which gender will react more?” The researchers had three hypotheses: (1) More women will smile when reading the card than men, (2) More men than women will notice the card and continue walking, and (3) More men than women will notice the card.
My observation locations are Starbucks and restaurant. I chose them as my observation location because those are the places where people normally talk, study, socialize and interact in a casual manner.
This was the largest study ever to be conducted on inmates. The Culture of Prison Sexual Violence study examines how inmates view sexual relations in prison, including forced sexual misconduct (nij.gov). The study covered men and women facilities in 15 States and included over 600 interview hours. Inmates were not asked if they were involved in any sexual relations but if they knew of any incidences that were going on within their facility or during their incarcerations. The reports show that many do not view sexual relations the same as someone outside the prison walls. They indicated that rape was a rare occurrence (nij.gov). Majority of both male and female inmates claimed they were aware of inmate-staff sexual relationships. According to the inmates, some of the relationships between the two were romantic and mutual. Together, only 9.1 percent of these inmates reported they were aware of an inmate who had been raped by a correctional staff member (nij.gov). About 34% of male inmates and 28% of female inmates, reported they knew of an inmate who reported rape to staff members (nij.gov). They also said that correction officers try to protect inmates from being victimized. All the results from this exercise help make recommendations for corrections practitioners to improve training to staff, orientate inmates, observe inmates, direct supervise, and enhance policymaking. By improving on these, it can help change prison culture as a
Passing presents us with two women who are similar bet different in their sexuality, these levels are identity, race, and class division. Irene and Claire fight to support and defend their own race and endure polite society. The commonality between these two women are Irene Redfield is passing through polite society and Clair is completely passing as white along with her white husband not knowing the truth. Color lines as white. She controls her entire family to ensure that not a word of dissatisfaction is said about her. In her fantasy world, she had not deserted her own African American inheritance. Instead of embracing who she is on the inside, Irene sees the outward white world as something to gravitate to, mimic, and aspire to. This time
Sexual assault in jail serves as a way to show one’s control and domination (Guerrero, 2008, p.30). Some prisoners are lacking the expression of their sexuality and become dominant over other inmates (Struckman-Johnson, 2013, p.444). Others do it because of their dislike of another prisoner. Such dislike can be based on racial background, which is a major issue in prisons, because people, whose race is dominant in the prison tend to be predators and sexualy violate other prisoners (Wolff, 2008, p. 466). Furthermore, other reasons for sexual assault can be sexuality of a person or age. Younger people or gays tend to report more cases of sexual assault than other groups of inmates (Wolff, 2008, p. 465). Since it has always been a big issue for the society, there were various methods used in order to try to prevent it. Clearly they are not properly working, because it remains to be today’s issue (Struckman-Johnson, 201, p. 430).
They also noted that, in the vast majority of studies, male facilities have been found to have higher rates of sexual assault compared to female facilities and that younger inmates are at a greater risk of sexual victimization, particularly if they are new arrivals to a facility or if they are serving their first convictions. They also found that inmate-on-inmate sexual victimization has an interracial bias, with victim’s most likely being White and sexual aggressors most likely being Black (Nancy
Based on the Chapter 11 readings, select at least *two* concepts in social psychology and explain how the dynamics associated with both concepts influenced the participants in the Stanford Prison Experiment. The two concepts in social psychology that influenced the participants in the Stanford Prison Experiment was social influence and social cognition. According to the text book “Social Influence psychology research area that investigates how our behavior is affected by situational factors and other people.” In the Stanford Prison Experiment the Psychologists were investigating the situational factors of how being in a prison affected the behavior of the participants.
Forty Five! Forty Six! Forty Seven! Those numbers were the highlight of my family reunion. It was all because of my cousin Steve. The whole family would stand around him counting how many pushups he could do after drinking 5 or more cans of beer, it was like basketball season you were anticipating it. He drank beer everyday not just one can, but more than the amount of fingers on both hands. Steve could drink alcohol until he was blue, but still manage to accomplish so many things. For example, he maintains a morning exercise routine, teaches Karate, and learns to cook like a true chef. Steve impresses me with everything that he does eventhough he drinks excessively.
I attended a “Sex Signals” performance this past Monday, August the 31st. This was the second performance I had ever attended, with the first one being at my hometown in Laredo, Texas. I didn’t really enjoy the first one because the performers were not being loud enough, or because I deafened myself with my earphones. Yet, in “Sex Signals,” every word and phrase was loud and clear despite me being at the back of the auditorium. I did not enjoy the performance however, but I believe I may have been too critical about it.
At 1602 hours on July 6th, 2016, I, Cadet Gabbard B10, was dispatched to 12625 Wetmore Road, San Antonio, TX Suite 436 for a complaint of damaged property with obscene material in plain view. I arrived at the scene at 1604 hours.
The show, “Sex Signals”, was a beautiful performance entertaining and educating college students about the importance of about consensual sexual relations. I thought the play was hilarious, especially when they allowed the audience to participate in some of the skits and parts of the play. I also felt that the play did an intelligent job of answering all questions that were asked from the audience, and informing them about the importance and safety of consensual sex. The play really improved my views on consensual sex, and revitalized my thoughts on rape and rape culture.
Sitting in her room, the twelve year old female smiles as she responds to a stranger on her laptop. The young lady types in her name, address, phone number, and other personal information. She makes arrangements to meet the stranger. She sets a date to meet him in the park not realizing who she will encounter. This twelve year old had no idea the danger she is setting herself up for. The stranger who is communicating with the young lady is luring her to meet him. Surely, his intentions are not in her best interest. She is using technology in a way that is not appropriate. Although technology is a tool used daily for productivity it can also be accessed for the wrong reasons. Technology is causing much corruption in society through sexual exploitation, violence, and identity theft in which the worse is brought out.
After an individual goes through all the changes of growing up they start to reach middle adulthood. In middle adulthood humans continue to make changes. However, these changes are different from any of the changes that an individual has been through before. Through observation, a lot can be earned about an individual on many different levels. The observer is able to analyze the individual on a biological, cognitive, and psychosocial point of views.
Engaging in sexual behavior of any kind involves some level of risk. Whether that risk is physical, emotional, or social, those who partake in sexual activity with another human being must incorporate risk into their decision-making processes. However, these decision-making processes and the definition of risk itself are heavily influenced by social schema. There is strong empirical evidence for gender differences in risk taking behaviors, but it is necessary to look deeper in order to apply current data to the topic of taking risk with sexual behavior. By considering how risky sexual behaviors are defined, the influence of social schemata, and potential mitigating factors to risky sexual behaviors, it becomes evident that social
