Sex Offenders: To Castrate or Not To Castrate - The act of rape is arguably one of the worse crimes that can be committed against another person.

It is at this point that a zygote can be said to be male or female. However, the development of male or female sex organs is not determined until later in the sixth to seventh week of development. Genetics plays a significant role in sex determination, providing many gene loci that assist the process of cell determination and organ development....   [tags: Primary Sex Determination, Sex Chromosomes]

The Importance of Sex Education - Sex education should be increased in schools. Nearly one million women under the age of 20 get pregnant each year. That means 2800 women get pregnant each day. If students are educated about the effects sex has on their lives, it lessens their chance of having children at an early age. Knowledge about sex can also lessen the chance of kids receiving STDS. First of all, the main reason children have sex prematurely is because they are curious.

The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir - Simone de Beauvoir, in her 1949 text The Second Sex, examines the problems faced by women in Western society. She argues that women are subjugated, oppressed, and made to be inferior to males – simply by virtue of the fact that they are women. She notes that men define their own world, and women are merely meant to live in it. She sees women as unable to change the world like men can, unable to live their lives freely as men can, and, tragically, mostly unaware of their own oppression. In The Second Sex, de Beauvoir describes the subjugation of woman, defines a method for her liberation, and recommends strategies for this liberation that still have not been implemented today....   [tags: Essays on The Second Sex]
