Sex Ed - 993 words
There are many reasons why people argue for and against sex education being a set curriculum in our school systems, but not many people look at the facts of the issue before deciding that sex education is not right. The plain truth is that there has been a dramatic increase in the number of teenagers that have become sexually active. The age at which sexual intercourse first occurs is becoming younger. According to Stong and Devault, in 1996 17% of girls and 38% of boys admitted to having sex by the age of 15. These children that are having sex are doing it without proper knowledge of the risk they may be in. Without proper knowledge a person might go into the world thinking that as long as ...

Teenage pregnancy and out-of-wedlock childbearing were central issues in the debate over welfare reform. They are frequently seen as both the cause of increased welfare costs and caseloads over the last 25 years, and the result of the welfare system itself. Out-of-wedlock births among teenagers have increased dramatically in the last several decades and now account for almost 70% of all teenage births. Yet, trends in teenage sexual activity and childbearing reflect broader trends in sexual and reproductive behavior among women of all ages and income levels. Women age 20 and older, for example, account for more than three-quarters of the unintended pregnancies and abortions that occur each ye ...

Sexual transmitted diseases (STD) are one of the major causes of death in the United States, frequently in teenagers. Some of these sexual transmitted diseases do not have a cure and many others, if not treated properly, can lead to very serious complications as cancer.

Sudan is a fairly large country located in northeast Africa. In Sudan women and children are still the result of slavery.

Technology And The Media - 670 words
Technology and the media have affected people in various ways over the past thirty years. They have influenced the way that people feel and think about certain issues pertaining to, not only the United States, but the rest of the world, too. I also believe that technology and the media help to shape our society, and create social norms. With the invention of magazines and models, came the world wide known idea of the "perfect man" and the "perfect woman". This idea caused insecurity and a lack of self confidence and worth mostly among women. For example, in the sixties and seventies, there was a model by the name of twiggy. She was called Twiggy because her extremely thin body looked like a ...

Friday - 1,370 words
The movie Friday is a comedy, but it also depicts many important social issues. The story is set in the city of Los Angeles, California, in what could be called a high-class ghetto in my perspective. The main theme of the movie is about a young black man who looses his job and is influenced by his best friend to smoke marijuana. The movie also shows the relationships of his family and other members of his neighborhood. With a zany cast of characters and a hilarious script this movie touches on everything from gang violence to the use of drugs, crime, guns, relationships, sex and life in the ghetto. Because of all these issues, I found this an interesting movie with a wide variety of topics t ...
