Forum: Teacher Student Sex Scandals and Double Standards
Howdy Andy Nash,

At my past high school there were 2 sex scandals. One was with a female guidance counselor and the other with a male teacher. The male teacher was accused multiple times, by multiple students, however was never found guilty. There was also very little media attention put onto this teacher. The female guidance counselor on the other end was given a tremendous amount of media attention before being found guilty and she was later found guilty.

For the most part, I don't think anyone should live in fear for the sons or daughters. Sexual assault cases have actually went down in the past 20 years (https://www.rainn.org/statistics/scope-problem). I think the media is just trying to push the stories that will get the most eyes. Society definitely sees males less impacted by sexual assaults, however I don't think many people view them as not impacted at all. Pretty much everyone agrees that sexual assault is bad for any child impacted though.

Thanks for Reading,

Subject: Breaking a Social Norm!

Forum: Breaking a Social Norm!
So last week in my Sociology class my teacher challenged the students to do something outside of the social norm and see what reactions you would get from other people.

While I didn't participate in this activity a lot of my other classmates did!

One of my class simply changed the tone of his voice and everyone was asking him if something was wrong with him.

Another guy was spitting while he walked by people and every time the people would start laughing.

My teacher also told the class of a time where the whole class was standing on top of their desk when she walked in.

So has anyone ever done anything outside of the Social Norm?

What did you do?

What reactions did you get?

Bonus Points: Break a social norm today and report back!!!

Thanks for reading ^.^
