Television, in particular, has the ability to influence the social structure of society with its subjective content. As Dwight E. Brooks and Lisa P. Hébert write in their article, “GENDER, RACE, AND MEDIA REPRESENTATION”, the basis of our accepted social identities is heavily controlled by the media we consume. One of the social identities that is heavily influenced is gender: Brooks and Hébert conclude, “While sex differences are rooted in biology, how we come to understand and perform gender is based on culture” (Brooks, Hébert 297)....   [tags: Sociology, Gender role, Patriarchy, Gender]

The Long Or Short Quest for Surprising And Addicting Characters

- If literary works were to be split into two categories based on length of work, I would propose that these categories could be works that take the average adult reader less than half an hour to read, referred to as shorter length literature, and more than half an hour to read, referred to as full length literature. If this claim is accepted, then I would believe that short stories, short drama pieces, and most poetry would fit into the shorter length literature category, while the full length literature category holds longer drama pieces, novels, and novellas....   [tags: literary works, writing]

An Essay on American Materialism

- There are many Americans that spend their money on too many things not essential to the preservation of our lives and health. Money that we spend on upgrading to a new TV or more fashionable up to date clothing could be donated to one of a number of charitable agencies and can mean the difference between life and death for children in need. Peter Singer agrees with these statements and wrote an essay about it.

Growing Pains On Teenage Brain

- Growing Pains In America’s society today, trying juveniles as adults is seen as a just punishment. However, trying juveniles as adults for their violent crimes is unreasonable considering how immature a juvenile is compared to an adult. Therefore, juveniles accused of violent crimes should not be held accountable on the same level as an adult due to lack of maturity. When an adolescent commits a violent crime, it does not mean that they are destined to lead a life of crime. Such actions are not a sign of things to come....   [tags: Crime, Juvenile delinquency, Criminology]

Although, those with mental illness cannot always be treated the same, as each case will never be the same. I believe this is shown in the Case of Luke Batty’s murder.
