More and more in society, we are seeing young people suffering from extreme anxiety, being diagnosed with forms of clinical depression, and, in some cases, even committing suicide. In many of these instances, past sexual relationships are what are at the root of these unfortunate down-ward spirals in young adults. Where is this system going wrong?

Hollywood is one of the few industries where there is little to no discrimination between men and women. However, it was not always like this. Barely a century ago, male stars were the main focus of the film industry and women were relatively ignored. It was in this era that Katharine Hepburn (1907-2003) began her career. However, having been raised by parents who encouraged her to think for herself, she was outspoken and refused to conform to the Hollywood publicity machine. She was married once, but, after her divorce, decided to live independently and never remarried.

It has been seen in the college students that it is normal to take part in hooking up behavior and having a one night stand. In research of college students it was found that society there are specific groups more likely to hook up than others; also depending on their family and cultural backgrounds is an influence of whether or not they hook up. It is a way of life for some college students, as hooking up can be a positive or negative experience for each individual, but this does not mean every student feels this way and partakes in this type of behavior.

In her article, Laurie Penny (2013) speaks out about the recent magazine headlines: Miley Cyrus’ performance at the Video Music Awards. Penny questions the torment that Cyrus had recently been subject too, namely a letter written by Sinead O’Conner to Cyrus. Penny continues to state that many young women are faced with the same problem, whether to conform to societal norms and be a “good girl” as Miley Cyrus portrayed in “Hannah Montana” or whether to be able to use their bodies as a powerful weapon in their lives. She questions why we should be allowed to be seen in a certain way, and that is considered good, even something that is sought after, but if we act on these feelings and “objectify” ourselves we are seen as sluts, or like ideas.

Women are constantly struggling with their self-image and self-esteem because of the way they look. Women feel they need to look a certain way because of the media constantly telling them they are not good enough and need to change their body image.

Being homeless is usually quite a challenge. Having no money and no place to stay is enough to make a man miserable. Sometimes, however, things can become even worse for those poor people. Jason Murray, a homeless man who lives in Montreal, became the target of a beating. A man began to beat him up for no apparent reason. Bystanders witnessed the incident and did not intervene. Nobody called the police.  One person even stopped to film the beating. A woman also began to kick Murray in the face, adding that he deserved it.
