The article I found is titled “Binge drinking in and out of college: An examination of social control and differential association on binge drinking behaviors between college students and their non-college peers.” This article is about excessive drinking behavior in both college and non-college groups. It’s looking at whether one is more likely to drink in college or out of college at the same age. However, The most prominent predictor of individual drinking is peer behavior.

the topic that I will discus is racism that can affect children. Children are young, impressionable and most often are not educated on the topic of race and could possibly use innapropriate words that they are unware that they are offensive. In this article a little girl (white American) was playing on the play ground with a boy (African American) in Maplewood N.J. and she told him he wasn’t allowed to go on a certain ride because of the colour of his skin tone.

An issue in society that has only been growing involves the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community. The first public battle that I can remember, was fighting for social acceptance for lesbians, gays, and those who are bisexual. The next, was gay marriage. Currently, the social issue that seems to be everywhere is relating to those who are transgender. The issue has grown since those individuals now would like to be able to use the bathroom of their choice. Now I tend to stay away from this social topic, but an article struck my attention and I have now decided to go further into this societal controversy. The article on the Newsweek website, “Denying transgender people bathroom access is linked to suicide,” caught my attention as it probably would anyone. The title caught my attention because of how simply bizarre the idea that bathroom access could ever be linked to suicide rates.

When we hear the word “condom” the first thing that comes to mind is sex. When condom and sex are put in the same sentence, we think less disease and fewer teen pregnancies.

Color Blind or Blind to inequality               What is race? What makes us so different from one individual to another? Well, before I continue it is important to know that humans greatly differ from each other physically, however we are closer than we might think. In Jared Diamond's article he mentions that basing race on body chemistry doesn’t make more sense than basing race on a physical trait (Diamond, Winter, 1).
