The rape of males, a very widespread and extremely serious problem, has escaped the attention of many people because of the beliefs that to be raped is to be stripped of your masculinity. The mythology that women are the only ones to get raped is a fallacy of popular belief. Men too get raped.

Abortion Abortion on demand should be legal for many reasons. In countries where abortion is absolutely not tolerated it is a fact that women continue to receive abortions, from unqualified back-street abortionists or the village massage abortionist. Both of these individuals risk putting the woman through painful and potentially fatal tortures just in an attempt to abort a child.

The conflict in this book is mostly driven by racism because the male and female characters are treated unequally since they are Negroes. At the beginning of the book, Van Morrisons’ family is introduced by Bailey because Bailey’s parents work for them. Although Mrs. Van is colored, she refuses to hire colored people as servants for her family because she feels that having any colored people working for her family cheapens her family’s appearance in her neighbors, who are mostly white people. However, “none of them neighbors is about to sit down and eat with her”(Naylor 7). From this detail, we can see that even though Mrs. Van is as wealthy as most of her neighbors, her family isn’t welcomed because they are black.
