This is a video about the idea of eating better causing people to look more attractive. In this video, it talks about the aesthetic norm about how a persons body should look. For example, this video says if you eat more vegetables, then your face will glow with more color and then you will get more admirers and be considered more beautiful.
This article talks about the impacts of drugs on women as opposed to men. The first reason said is that women have more emotional and mental problems than men tend to have. This brings up the fact that not only the drug issue, but the stereotyping of women as being more emotionally affected and less physically. Another point is on the idea of pregnancy. As shown in the clip we watched, it does affect the unborn and new born infant and we should be careful about what we put in our bodies when pregnant.
I think that Cristal Richardson told jurors at her murder trial that she doesn’t recall everything that happened when she castrated Cedric Owens and stabbed him 130 times in a Far East Dallas motel room. But she she told jurors that she does remember she acted in self defense. Richardson, 29, ...
In a positivist ideal, this article has quite a few reasons as to why its a murder. One reason is that this murder did happen in the heat of the moment. This woman claims that before she killed Cedric Owens, he was assaulting her and that the murder happened in the heat of the moment. Another reason positivists might label this a murder is that this woman justifies that she killed him for the right reason: self defense. She claims that he was raping her and hitting her. She also claims that she was not on her medication that she needs to be coherent.
The term “date rape” refers to an alleged forced sexual encounter between two people with a pre-existing relationship. The two people can be actually dating or may even just be friends who interact in social situations. Many people believe that accusations of date rape are not as serious as accusations of rape between strangers, and [...]
This article talks about the definition of rape. Rape, as defined in 2012, is any oral sex or sexual penetration without consent of the victim. In the article, it's said that some people don't believe date rape to be a form of rape and that it's because generally the victim knows the rapist and, therefore, allows it. As explained in class, rapes generally happen between two people who know each other. Furthermore, this article explains that date rape either through drugs or alcohol is truly considered rape and is punishable through the consequences of rape.
This is an example of medicalization. This is grief being turned into depression. Now, it's natural to feel depressed when a loved one dies, but turning this into full-on depression is a little ridiculous. Also talked about in the article is the fact that grief has changed a lot in the last little while. When it's natural to have grief is steadily becoming a longer and longer period of time. This goes along with the labeling theory. When people are labeled as grieving for whatever reason, they believe they have to be. This has become a norm in society. They don't know exactly how long they are supposed to grieve; they just know that it's supposed to happen.
"Most teenagers who drink alcohol do so with their friends in social settings, but a new study by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh reveals that a significant number of adolescents consume alcohol while they are alone...Furthermore, solitary teenage drinkers are more likely to develop alcohol use disorders in early adulthood."
This article illustrates some of the connections about alcohol made in the class. One of the connections is that drinking in some contexts is deviant. In this case, they are, first of all, minors. Second of all, it leads to drinking more as an adult. And third of all, it leads to further deviance the more the person gets addicted to it.
A new (and extraordinarily unsurprising) study finds that imbibing alcohol doesn't have a Jekyll & Hyde-like effect upon otherwise mild-mannered and polite men, who in the throes of Dionysian mania "lose their inhibitions" and commit sexual assault. Actually, it's quite the opposite: researchers at the University of Toronto and the University of Washington have found that there is no relationship between male sexual aggression and intoxication. Sorry, rape apologists. Looks like you're going to have to find something else to write op-eds about.
This is an interesting view on the correlation between drinking and rape. In most instances, while drinking, it is said that drinking will lead to other forms of deviance, including rape or sexual assault. In this article, however, the author is basically saying that if a person wants to rape someone, its because of a choice they make. Its because of a choice they make quite consciously. Furthermore, the article talks about the idea that drunk women are the cause of their own rape, but in the article it talks about how its natural for rapists to pick out the weakest link and to exploit that link. In the article, it actually blames the bartenders for not helping those who are vulnerable to this problem.

This article conveys the positivist ideas of murder. Positivists say that murders happen because they believe there is a just cause for them. In the article, it is said that the murders happen because to cover up the murder of the women's husband. Another thing that positivists say is that murders tend to happen in the same race and ethnicity. In the article, all the people involved are Indians (from India). Positivists say that men are more than likely to kill women. In this case, there are two men that killed the one woman. This article conveys many aspects of the reasons positivists believe murders occur.
'Stop and Frisk' is a threat to public health. (RT @Jason_Reads: My @TheAtlantic essay on how racism is bad for our bodies: http://t.co/V9x52Cl7uY)
Kim Warren's insight:
The idea of criminalizing darkness is most prevalent in this article. Criminalizing darkness is the act of placing the label of crime on a dark colored race that really might not be criminal. The article is fighting against the law that allows police to Stop and Frisk. Now, this law is meant for all races, but the law targets those who are black and hispanic. In the article, it says that in 70 of the 76 precincts that started this law will have about 50 to 90% of the stops be black or hispanic. The article also mentions that the idea of criminalizing darkness is causing many health risks to people in general, but mostly blacks and hispanics. It says that people who are frisked for racist reasons or have the possibility of being frisked have more risk of being stressed and having a fight or flight response.

This article reminded me of the rational theory of the positivists. There are certain factors that are brought up in the article that support this. First of all, there is a clear cut motivated offender. Men are basically born into this ethnicity thinking that they are better than women. It's an old-fashioned social norm that is changing. There is opportunity every day for men to take advantage of women. They might have changed the laws, but there is still lee way to beat and kill women and children. There is a guardian that loses control over the accused. In the beginning of the article, the man's father is in accordance with his son. He would help his son kill the woman.
