Sexual Orientation

Social Sciences, Undergraduate
Disagree with this and why...I do not believe that people are born with an sexual orientation. I personally feel as if it is learned and developed once the person gets older and can decide their sexual preference. I also do not think that many people know really who they are or are interested in until they get older and start learning and understanding who they are and who they like. This leads to the second question, I do not think that sexual orientation is easily measured it is something that is decided and not so narrow.I do not believe that sexual behavior should be the means by which sexual orientation is measured. People may experiment or have sexual relations with someone of the same sex does not necessarily mean they…

Sexual Orientation

APA (edition "APA 6"), Social Sciences
Agree or Disagree with this and explain reasons why:1. My religious beliefs taught me that the purpose of sex is for reproduction, and therefore I feel that people are born with a sexual orientation to follow that. I think that sexuality is partially socially constructed, and therefore subject to change. While people are born to be attracted to the opposite sex, differing urges do exist, and society can encourage individuals to pursue other forms of pleasure through homosexuality. 2. I feel that sexual orientation should be defined by behavior. This can be confusing since people often identify themselves separately from their actions, but in a world defined by social construction, behavior speaks louder than belief. 3. Data indicates that the number of people identifying as LGBT has increased, especially in…

Critical Threats to the Global Environment

APA (edition "APA 6"), Social Sciences
OverviewThe United Nations has continued to retain you as a consultant for a project that deals with climate and the environment. Most developed countries see the dangers of releasing too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and are committed to climate policies that attain a carbon-free future in the next 30 years. They already see the damaging effects that this gas alone is having on the living conditions of crops, wildlife, and humans. As a result, many member states are dissatisfied with the progress of the eight Millennium Development Goals for international development that they established in 2000. The member states see a substantial disconnect between several issues that developed and developing countries believe are priorities. For example, Burundi wants one of the goals to focus on food security, while…

Definitions and Theories of Happiness.

ASA, Social Sciences
Unit 1:  Definitions and Theories of Happiness.For this unit we are watching three of the most famous movies to deal with the pursuit of happiness.  One of them was the basis for the creation of this course.  They are films that people watch again and again and never tire of.  While they were filmed in different decades, they continue to have relevance for us today in 2021.  They tell us a great deal about happiness.  "Groundhog Day" alone deals with almost a wide range of paths to happiness.  "The Pursuit of Happyness" deals with the monumental issue of finding happiness within unhappiness.  And "It's a Wonderful Life," has become of one the big "Christmas movies" shown every year during the holidays.  Even though it was made in 1946, its message…
