Human sexuality is central to culture, and the way in which sexuality is expressed and acted upon is highly influenced by culture.
Initial Posting: Choose one of the five topics relative to human sexuality:
Sexuality and Aging
Discuss (a) the cultural impact on the topic that you have chosen (e.g.–norms, rules, impact on perceptions, judgments, biases), (b) conflicting perspectives relative to this topic, and (c) how to address the issue/topic chosen from the perspective of a Human Services Professional’s obligation towards respecting all cultures.
Jane discovered that
John was telling fellow workers that she is a lesbian. Although Jane is open
about her sexual orientation, she thinks it is inappropriate for John to share
personal information about her with co-workers. When Jane approached John and
asked him to stop saying that she is a lesbian because it is professionally
inappropriate, he replied “Why shouldn’t tell people? Everyone knows, and
you’re out anyway.” Felling disappointed and angry, Jane made an appointment to
speak to her field supervisor and described what happened and complained about
John’s behavior. Jane’s field supervisor responded that she was sorry this had
happened, but there was nothing she could do about it because John is the
relative of a very powerful board member and she is afraid that reprimanding
John will cause problems for her. Given the current economic situation, the
field supervisor is afraid that she could lose her job and not able to find
another one. Is the field supervisor’s response ethical? To whom does the
supervisor owe loyalty? How would you respond in Jane’s position? How would you
respond in the field supervisor’s position? Taken from Ethical Decisions for S.

8 QUESTION: Who/what has shaped your life chances the most? Why/how? In 2-4 paragraphs, briefly explain what top 3 people, places, things and/or social institutions that have shaped you. Consider the information provided in
The assignment this week is for you to investigate on your own the topic of media concentration.
I’d like you to look into the ownership relations of different media or popular culture products that you own. Which companies produced the music you listen to, favorite DVDs/films on streaming platforms, television shows, etc.? The idea here is not to present a simple inventory, but, rather, try to trace the products back to the big media conglomerates outlined in the Grazian book and to look for connections between different products you own/consume. A list about the holdings of the “Big 6” that is easier to read can be found at the Wikipedia site on “Media Cross-Ownership in the United States.” – because of mergers these kinds of lists change all the time!
In writing up your findings, make sure that you present them in terms of the Grazian book. Feel free to write about your personal reactions to this. 300-500 words.
Shante’ is a 62-year-old divorcee’ with 3 adult children. While married, she ascribed to the traditional gender roles that she learned from a little girl on what a wife should look like and what a wife should be doing within the household. Since her divorce 2 years ago, Shante’ has felt lonely and has increasingly felt the need for companionship. In a phone conversation with her younger sister, Eloise, the conversation goes as such:
Shante’: “It’s Saturday night and I am at home watching television. I have two neighbors who appear to be older than me, but they are getting out and enjoying life. One of them looks like she was getting ready to go out on a date earlier this week. I must admit, I am lonely”.
Eloise: “You need to live, honey. Your marriage ended two years ago. Your kids are doing well living their lives. What about you? You know, I watched you be unhappy within your marriage because you were doing what he wanted you to do. Being a good wife does not mean conforming to those traditional roles that our mother fulfilled, as did our grandmother. I’m getting off subject, but let me tell you about this dating phone app, 50 LOVE—if you’re interested in doing something different and exploring life and the fun person I used to know you to be in our teens and 20’s”.
Shante’: “You’re right. I’ve worked through my feelings of being ‘less than’ throughout my marriage. I gained weight and eventually lost 80 pounds after my battle with cervical cancer 15 years ago. At one time, I felt attractive and then begin to feel like I wasn’t good enough because I wasn’t happy. I am a woman worthy of change, happiness, and doing what I need to do. I still have feelings of wanting to have sex. I’m human. And if I do so, it will be responsibly and on my terms. We were raised with the adage “No sex before marriage” because of being raised by our pastor father and going to church several days a week. I’m 62, not married, but what if I meet someone eventually and the mutual desire(s) are there. Then what? I want and need my own sense of self and to live in accordance with my own self-identified values, right?
Eloise: “Right on! It’s all about continuing to be responsible, live responsibly, and not let the world tell you what you should and should not do. Don’t you agree?
Shante’: “I do. I am woman, hear me roar. These are thoughts that I have been thinking about for years and have appreciated when listening to women of all ages throughout the years talk about their version of womanhood and sexuality. I’ll be 63 in two months. Thank you for giving me the motivation to reclaim and to rethink who I am.
Eloise: “Sure thing! I wholeheartedly understand.
Though Shante’ is a middle-aged woman, sexuality continues to be important within all phases of the developmental lifespan. Discuss Shante’s position relative to sexuality from psychological, biological, and social/sociological characteristics, based upon her indicated experiences and where she is presently, based upon the transcript.

We can now begin our discussion on what we covered this first week. Chapter 1 begins with diversity, what is meant by diversity and its impact on the demographics of America?
I will give you a series of questions to “think” about. You can answer all of them in general terms, or you can select a specific question(s). The questions relate to the chapter.
How has/will diversity affect our traditional American society? As women become more inclusive in society, how will they affect change? What do Wagley, Harris, Marx, Weber, and Lenski, Collins have to say about the change in society for classes and minorities? As you move along in class, we will discuss the current social and racial situations in the U.S. today. It seems that we are divided into numerous “camps”, how has this affected the move toward diversity? Is there racial conflict today? How do we resolve this conflict? In the past, I would discuss race relations in America, and students would say, “Mr. Martinez, we don’t have problems with race, we get along pretty well”. Are we?
As you review the questions above, you many select ones to discuss or all in a general way. Don’t forget to do your “threads”
Make sure your opening statement is two paragraphs, however, when you want you can add another paragraph.
Terms to remember: stratification, gender, SES, class, race and culture
