The broken mirror. A self psychological treatment perspective for relationship violence. (1/1137)

Clinicians face formidable challenges in working with male perpetrators of domestic violence. Many treatment programs use a confrontational approach that emphasizes male entitlement and patriarchal societal attitudes, without honoring the genuine psychological pain of the abusive male. Although some men with strong psychopathic tendencies are almost impossible to treat, the majority of spouse-abusing males respond best to an empathic, client-centered, self psychological approach that also includes education about sociocultural issues and specific skill building. Understanding the deprivations in mirroring selfobject functions from which these men typically suffer facilitates clinical treatment response. While insisting that men take full responsibility for their abusive behavior, treatment approaches can still be most effective by addressing inherent psychological issues. Group leaders who can offer respect for perpetrators' history, their experience of powerlessness, and their emotional injuries in primary relationships are more likely to make an impact.  (+info)

Childbirth customs in Orthodox Jewish traditions. (2/1137)

OBJECTIVE: To describe cultural beliefs of Orthodox Jewish families regarding childbirth in order to help family physicians enhance the quality and sensitivity of their care. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: These findings were based on a review of the literature searched in MEDLINE (1966 to present), HEALTHSTAR (1975 to present), EMBASE (1988 to present), and Social Science Abstracts (1984 to present). Interviews with several members of the Orthodox Jewish community in Edmonton, Alta, and Vancouver, BC, were conducted to determine the accuracy of the information presented and the relevance of the paper to the current state of health care delivery from the recipients' point of view. MAIN MESSAGE: Customs and practices surrounding childbirth in the Orthodox Jewish tradition differ in several practical respects from expectations and practices within the Canadian health care system. The information presented was deemed relevant and accurate by those interviewed, and the subject matter was considered to be important for improving communication between patients and physicians. Improved communication and recognition of these differences can improve the quality of health care provided to these patients. CONCLUSIONS: Misunderstandings rooted in different cultural views of childbirth and the events surrounding it can adversely affect health care provided to women in the Orthodox Jewish community in Canada. A basic understanding of the cultural foundations of potential misunderstandings will help Canadian physicians provide effective health care to Orthodox Jewish women.  (+info)

Childbirth customs in Vietnamese traditions. (3/1137)

OBJECTIVE: To examine and understand how differences in the cultural backgrounds of Canadian physicians and their Vietnamese patients can affect the quality and efficacy of prenatal and postnatal treatment. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: The information in this paper is based on a review of the literature, supplemented by interviews with members of the Vietnamese community in Edmonton, Alta. The literature was searched with MEDLINE (1966 to present), HEALTHSTAR (1975 to present), EMBASE (1988 to present), and Social Sciences Abstracts (1984 to present). Emphasis was placed on articles and other texts that dealt with Vietnamese customs surrounding childbirth, but information on health and health care customs was also considered. Interviews focused on the accuracy of information obtained from the research and the correlation of those data with personal experiences of Vietnamese community members. MAIN MESSAGE: Information in the texts used to research this paper suggests that traditional Vietnamese beliefs and practices surrounding birth are very different from the biomedical view of the Canadian medical system. The experiences and beliefs of the members of the Vietnamese community support this finding. Such cultural differences could contribute to misunderstandings between physicians and patients and could affect the quality and efficacy of health care provided. CONCLUSIONS: A sensitive and open approach to the patient's belief system and open and frank communication are necessary to ensure effective prenatal and postnatal treatment for recent Vietnamese immigrants and refugees. Education and awareness of cultural differences are necessary for physicians to provide the best and most effective health care possible.  (+info)

Gender, work and illness: the influence of a research unit on an agricultural community in The Gambia. (4/1137)

Changes in employment opportunities and medical services are exploited by men and women in different ways. This paper examines gender-based variation in the selective use of employment and health opportunities in a Gambian village which has been the subject of medical and nutritional research by the Medical Research Council (MRC) for 43 years. The seasonal workloads of 105 men and women in Keneba were compared during one calendar year. Women carried a heavier burden of agricultural labour, while men had a higher rate of waged employment. The impact of the MRC field station on the local economy was assessed and evidence of associated male dependence on MRC employment found. Illness reporting patterns and the treatment choices of men and women were examined. Women made greater use of the MRC medical service, while men resorted more frequently to local remedies and healers. Female dependence on the MRC medical services is suggested by the data, and may be linked to the greater attention paid to them by researchers and medical practitioners.  (+info)

Choice and accountability in health promotion: the role of health economics. (5/1137)

Choices need to be made between competing uses of health care resources. There is debate about how these choices should be made, who should make them and the criteria upon which they should be made. Evaluation of health care is an important part of this debate. It has been suggested that the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion is limited, both because the methods and principles underlying economic evaluation are unsuited to health promotion, and because the political and cultural processes governing the health care system are more appropriate mechanisms for allocating health care resources than systematic economic analysis of the costs and benefits of different health care choices. This view misrepresents and misunderstands the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion. It overstates the undoubted methodological difficulties of evaluating health promotion. It also argues, mistakenly, that economists see economic evaluation as a substitute for the political and cultural processes governing health care, rather than an input to them. This paper argues for an economics input on grounds of efficiency, accountability and ethics, and challenges the critics of the economic approach to judge alternative mechanisms for allocating resources by the same criteria.  (+info)

Health seeking behaviour and the control of sexually transmitted disease. (6/1137)

What people do when they have symptoms or suspicion of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) has major implications for transmission and, consequently, for disease control. Delays in seeking and obtaining diagnosis and treatment can allow for continued transmission and the greater probability of adverse sequelae. An understanding of health seeking behaviour is therefore important if STD control programmes are to be effective. However, taboos and stigma related to sex and STD in most cultures mean that gaining a true picture is difficult and requires considerable cultural sensitivity. At the moment relatively little is known about who people turn to for advice, or about how symptoms are perceived, recognized or related to decisions to seek help. It is argued that such knowledge would assist programme planners in the development of more accessible and effective services, that studies of health seeking behaviour need to include a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, and that studies should include data collection about people who do not present to health care facilities as well as those who do. A pilot protocol for studying STD-related health seeking behaviour in developing countries is briefly presented.  (+info)

Planning with PRA: HIV and STD in a Nepalese mountain community. (7/1137)

The application of Participatory Rural Appraisal methods (PRA) to the topic of sexual health enabled us to explore key factors concerning local people's perceptions regarding HIV/AIDS and STDs and to plan collectively to address the emerging issues. Conducting the process in a gender sensitive way enabled people to feel safe enough to express their own opinions, and having gained confidence in their peer groups, to share ideas later with the whole community in a joint planning exercise. Nevertheless one group was identified as difficult to reach and whose needs could not be met in a group for reasons of confidentiality. While the methodology itself clearly has great potential in planning around specific health issues, there are, nevertheless, limitations. Although the approach and the tools used are simple and accessible, the skills needed to analyze the information are more complex and demanding. The training given did not manage to equip facilitators adequately with these analytical skills and in the future will be more experience based and geared towards developing analysis and the ability to formulate questions. In addition, since the project is not permanently resident in the area, intensive support within the District is necessary to increase the chances of sustainability.  (+info)

Practicing participatory research in American Indian communities. (8/1137)

The purpose of this article is to explore the historical issues that affect research in American Indian communities and examine the implications of these issues as they relate to culturally sensitive, respectful, and appropriate research with this population. Methods include review and analysis of the literature and examination of our collective experience and that of our colleagues. Recommendations are given for conducting culturally sensitive, participatory research. We conclude that research efforts must build on the establishment of partnerships between investigators and American Indian communities to ensure accurate findings and analyses and to implement culturally relevant benefits.  (+info)

Use of cultural adaptation is optimal if clinical research consistently identifies common group values and/or if an unadapted EST demonstrates poor outcomes within specific groups. Cultural adaptation may be appropriate if an EST is highly structured and complex, limiting the feasibility of in-session adaptations. Moreover, cultural adaptation is necessary if an EST is insensitive to a groups values or if mental health providers lacking cultural competence deliver the EST. However, cultural adaptation is associated with logistical and feasibility barriers.2 Barriers include lengthy programmatic treatment development procedures and the fact that no cultural adaptation will address the unique needs of all members of a particular group.. In contrast to cultural adaptation, individual tailoring may be best used with populations demonstrating high within-group heterogeneity. Due to its idiographic focus, individual tailoring recognizes intricacies associated with the intersection of multiple ...
There are approximately seven million adult gay and bisexual men in the United States and 120 million adult gay and bisexual men globally. This highly readable volume of original essays explores the cultural dimensions of AIDS among men who have sex with men (MSM).. The traditional emphasis in HIV/AIDS research within gay communities has focused on sexual behavior and psychological issues. Yet to better understand the social and cultural dimensions of the disease, and to halt the spread of HIV, it is essential to recognize and understand the culture of MSM. Cultural anthropologists, unquestionably, are in a unique position to achieve this understanding. Douglas Feldman has gathered a diverse group of experts to contribute to this collection, and the volume features a wealth of scholarly data unavailable elsewhere.. ...

Whether it is religion, language, upbringing, education, sport or media - culture holds the key to successful integration. The various strategies of Europes Member States could hardly be more different. There are signs that civil and socioeconomic integration policies are beginning to be harmonised in Europe, but the cultural dimension is still determined by national concepts and ideas. Which strategies have proven their worth? What can culture achieve? And what does Europe need to do to improve the integration of migrants into mainstream society?

28 Rich Woods. I, have come to disagree with that. Extremism can be a good thing - I think we all agree that it is a good thing we are all anti-slavery extremists for example, and the tendency to blame extremism tends to be a bit of a cop-out.. The accusation of extremism is used to insulate ourselves, of making the perceived extremists something other than us, which means we tend not to learn from them. This is why I am actually opposed to culture - because you get the exact same thing with tribalism where people derive their sense of mattering from cultural norms they stick to, and any threat to that such as people with different cultural norms. Leave aside all of that and ultimately we are all one species - each human being matters because that is all any of us are. To people like the EDL Islamist extremists matter because they are a threat to the English way of life - a threat to their cultural identities. Islamists are exactly the same, and the rest of us arent all that far ...
Introduction. SECTION C QUESTION 7: Using the structural, historical and cultural dimensions of the sociological imagination, identify the critical issues that relate to how western medicine has responded to the challenge of alternative medicine. In todays public health system, western medicine dominates over all other forms of medicine. Having said so, there has been a rise in the use of alternative medicines. In response to this challenge, western medicine is trying to fight off this challenge by excluding, subordinating, limiting and incorporating alternative medicine into mainstream medicine. Western medicines view on health is that of the biomedical model. Its biological in nature, therefore it reduces illness to a biological process. ...read more. Middle. This shows how the two cultures contrast. Western medicines culture on health and illness is biological and follows strict scientific laws, whereas the culture of alternative medicine is holistic and involves the human being life ...
1.0 Introduction Organizational Culture Organizational culture is defined as a system that organization can distinguishes the other organization and also share the meaning held by members. Its provides employees with a clearer understanding of the way things are done around here (Divedi, 1995). All the aspects of organizational life are the cultural dimension. Cultural issues receive little specific attention, even in those organizations. It is also showing how was the person in an enterprise will feel, think, act and value. Organizational culture is guided by ideas, meanings and beliefs of a cultural (socially shared) nature. There is no unique corporate culture and it doesnt lower the implication whether managers think that culture is too soft or too complicated to bother about (Alvesson, 2012). A greater synergy is comes from a strong culture. It can bring people together. People can know more friends and know each other if they have opportunity to communicate. Besides, a strong culture ...

In general, combative systems both armed and unarmed closely reflect the sociocultural milieu that is/was their provenance. As great an impact (in some cases greater) is made by contemporary conditions within which the system currently lies. Using the basic outlines of aggressive combative behavior and predatory combative behavior, we should be able to gauge on which side of the behavioral fence a particular system will tend to fall.. Further on, I will cover the biological and socio-cultural inhibitory mechanisms involved in combative behavior, as well as how systems of fighting arts, i.e., combative systems evolve along the lines of affective and predatory combat/combative behavior in their cultural milieu. We will see that the socio-cultural background and functional aims of a system will at least partially select for traits associated with primarily affective combative behavior or predatory. In addition, however, we will see that quite often, man s adaptability has allowed him to select ...
© The Author(s) 2019. Introduction: The shoulder is the leading site of musculoskeletal pain. Patient-reported outcomes, such as the Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI), allow us to assess shoulder pain in a clinical setting. Since the SPADI was developed in English, many cultures have cross-culturally adapted the SPADI for clinical use. The purpose of this review was to assess the translation and cross-cultural adaptation procedures and measurement properties of the adapted SPADI. Methods: A systematic review was performed on cultural adaptations of the SPADI accessible through MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE and/or Google Scholar. Included were prospective cohort studies that used an adapted version of the SPADI. All studies were evaluated according to the guidelines for cross-cultural adaptations and the guidelines for measurement properties. Results: The search retrieved 19 studies that met the inclusion criteria. According to the recommended guidelines for cross-cultural adaptations, 16 studies

A prevailing concept of cognition in psychology is inspired by the computer metaphor. Its focus on mental states that are generated and altered by information input, processing, storage and transmission invites a disregard for the cultural dimension of cognition, based on three (implicit) assumptions: cognition is internal, processing can be distinguished from content, and processing is independent of cultural background. Arguing against each of these assumptions, we point out how culture may affect cognitive processes in various ways, drawing on instances from numerical cognition, ethnobiological reasoning, and theory of mind. Given the pervasive cultural modulation of cognition-on all of Marrs levels of description-we conclude that cognition is indeed fundamentally cultural, and that consideration of its cultural dimension is essential for a comprehensive understanding.
This questionnaire has been developed based on the Cultural Orientations Framework (COF) by Philippe Rosinski described in his book Coaching Across Cultures (Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2003, www.CoachingAcrossCultures.com).. The COF is an integrative framework designed to assess and compare cultures. It includes a range of cultural dimensions/orientations grouped in seven categories of practical importance to leaders, professional coaches and anyone striving to unleash human potential in organizations: sense of power and responsibility, time management approaches, definitions of identity and purpose, organizational arrangements, notions of territory and boundaries, communication patterns, and modes of thinking. The COF builds upon the findings of anthropologists, communication experts, and cross-cultural consultants, including Florence Kluckhohn and Fred Strodtbeck, Edward Hall, Geert Hofstede, and Fons Trompenaars, among others.. A cultural orientation is an inclination to think, feel or act ...

Intercultural competence (IC) as an essential part of conceptualization of the cultural dimension in FLT has been promoted by educationalists as the most preferred type of competence. One of the challenges of incorporating IC into FLT is to move from the recognition of IC as a model of teaching (Byram, Nichols and Stevens, 2001) to the development of practical applications. This can be due to the fact that teachers do not have sufficient knowledge of the theory behind the concept and consequently, have difficulties to implement the curriculum requirements with regards to IC into their teaching. The purpose of this study was to investigate how teachers of English in upper secondary schools in Sweden interpret the concept of IC and, accordingly, what is their view of culture in English language teaching. In order to answer the research question, I used an exploratory investigation by adopting a qualitative research method in form of semi-structured interviews. The results are similar to the ...

In this paper aspects of the term cross-cultural are discussed. It is common that this concept is used in a non-reflexive way in technological and cultural focused literature. Somehow it seems to be taken for granted that interactions are cross-cultural if they are committed between people from different countries or from different parts of the world. I argue that the same interactions can be both cross-cultural and in-cultural depending on which theoretical standpoint the researcher chose to enact in the analysis. Based in my research I analyze some interviews, in order to explore if they should be regarded as cross-cultural or in-cultural. The aim is to inspire discussions among researchers in technology areas about what the term cross-cultural really means. ...
Ballard, who previously ran into controversy as director-general of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) where she pushed through extensive job cuts, said in an interview with The Sunday Times: Most parents would choose to have a hearing embryo, but for those few parents who do not, we think they should be allowed to exercise that choice and we would support them in that decision. There are a number of deaf forums where there are discussions about this. There are a small minority of activists who say that there is a cultural identity in being born deaf and that we should not destroy that cultural identity by preventing children from being born deaf. Ballard added: We would like to retain, as far as possible, parental choice, but it has to be in conjunction with a clinician so that people know exactly what they are choosing ...

VOLUME 2 (2000), ISSUE 4 (WINTER) TRANSNATIONAL IDENTITIES: THE HONG-KONG INDIANS. CAROLINE PLUSS. SUMMARY. Communities with transnational links can call upon multiple skills, knowledge and social networks that are rooted in different parts of the world in order to construct their identities. Such identity constructions can be regarded as strategies in the competition for social and economic benefits. This article examines the construction of the identities by Indian residents in Hong Kong in order to understand why certain identities were adopted and for what purposes.. The article analyzes, in addition to the initiatives of Indians in Hong Kong to shape new identities, what are the characteristics of Hong Kong that afford both opportunities and constraints for transnational identity constructions. The determinants examined are the demographic characteristics of Indians in Hong Kong, the values of the British colonial system, the perception of Hong Kong Chinese by the Indians, the business ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper contributes to cross-cultural research by identifying the theoretical and methodological strengths and weaknesses of selected previous research related to accountants values and judgments. The objective is to inform and guide both the theoretical specification and treatment of culture and its operationalisation and methodology. It is argued that enhancement in the quality of cross-cultural research in accounting can be accomplished by providing greater insight into the depth, richness and complexity of cultural and acculturational similarities and differences between and across nations by complementing the quantified dimensional based cultural measures with relevant historical, sociological and psychological literature.

It is the relationship between the gene and the endo-environment of the organism, which it participates in the creation of, that mediates the activity of the gene. The study of the gene must also include the study of all that might happen the gene, which is a set of possibilities constrained and shaped by the organisms internal environment, which in turn is mediated by its external environment. Furthermore, the expression of the gene is moderated by the non-coding DNA in the chromosomes of the organisms (which may act as an analogue for the systems of organisation between people if we continue to stretch the metaphor) thus we can imagine contrasting mutations in the non-coding DNA with cultural adaptations, and imagine them also diffusing across the boundaries of societies, regulating the activities of people, who are akin to individual genes, in the Neo-Darwinian frame ...

OBJECTIVE: To adapt and validate a Brazilian Portuguese version of the European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale.. METHODS: The cross-cultural adaptation (translation, synthesis, back-translation, expert committee review, and pretesting) and validation (assessment of face validity, content validity, and internal consistency reliability) were carried out in accordance with the literature. The European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale assesses key components of self-care: recognition of the signs and symptoms of decompensated heart failure (HF) and decision-making when these signs and symptoms arise. It comprises 12 items (range 12-60, where lower scores indicate better self-care).. RESULTS: The sample comprised 124 HF patients with a mean age of 62.3 ± 12 years. The Cronbachs Alpha internal consistency was 0.70 and the intraclass correlation coefficient for reproducibility was 0.87.. CONCLUSION: Face and content validity, internal consistency and reproducibility have lended validity ...
Some of the irritating and helpless feelings as a father or mother comes when your youngster is sick and blatantly refuses to take the medicine that you know will help make her higher. The course will last 3 hours a day for the precise topics and a pair of hours a day for the Brazilian Portuguese course for foreigners; 5 days every week, from Monday to Friday, for 2 weeks, totaling 10 lessons: 10 in the morning shift, which include the precise course taught within the English language and 10 lessons of Brazilian Portuguese for foreigners, totaling a workload of 100 hours.. Different options were obtainable: if you happen to wished a licence to observe, quite than to change into a totally fledged Fellow of the RCP, you would take your diploma abroad, or at one of many Scottish universities, where courses were shorter (within the case of Aberdeen, nearly non-existent as you can typically purchase your degree), and more likely to embody practical coaching in pharmacy, botany and anatomy ...
Data were analyzed by structural equation modeling (SEM) via partial least square (PLS), in the SmartPLS software, version 2.0 M3. The PLS models the interrelationships between the latent variables and their indicators and has been regularly applied to confirmatory tests in researches because it converges the data on estimated parameters, when the maximum likelihood estimation cannot be found66. Hair JF, Hult GTM, Ringle CM, Sarstedt M. A primer on partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-Sem). Thousand Oaks: Sage; 2014... The analysis by PLS includes the measurement model and the structural model. The measurement model is estimated using correlations between latent variables and their respective manifest variables. The structural model is estimated by the correlation between latent variables. To verify the adequacy of the model, we evaluate the following parameters:. Reliability: the traditional indicator is the Cronbachs alpha, based on inter-correlations between the latent ...

Traditionally, the taboo system common in the Pacific had been an efficient manner of protecting forest resources. The system unfortunately has been drastically relaxed, in most societies, through the power of money and decreasing resources. Increases in population have put further pressure on resources, aggravating the deterioration of this traditional obligation. Today, conservation and preservation are only attractive if the sustainable management of the resource involved provides some practical gain. If not, destructive exploitation can easily result. In Fijis context, the development of ecotourism has been based on the understanding that landowners will benefit through income generation (via employment and business opportunities). Preservation is secondary. Whilst the development of ecotourism in Fiji is a link between utilisation and preservation of the forest resources, it will only be effective in forested areas that have specialised and unique features, to which visitors will be ...

This research focuses on the influence of long term orientation on entrepreneurial decision making processes in China. The Sarasvathys effectuation theory (2001) and the Hofstedes (2001) five cultural dimensions framed the basic theoretical foundation for this study. This paper contribute on the study of cultural influence on entrepreneurial processes. The results suggest even there is not enough evidence to prove long term orientation significant influence Chinese student entrepreneurs on all dimensions of causal decision making tendency, but there is a surprising finding that long term orientation has significant influence on one dimensions named attitudes toward unexpected contingencies. So it is still meaningful for further deeply related study ...

It can be argued that overall the evidence for culturally adapted EBIs is encouraging. However, cultural adaptations may also carry the risk of alienating members of those groups they are aimed at. One of the risks is that mental health professionals and researchers often make the assumption that individuals from specific subgroups possess certain cultural characteristics9,10 and fail to take into account that within a larger group there are a number of subgroups with different characteristics, which may be overlooked by attaching an overarching cultural identity to them. These subgroups may also be those with the highest risk of developing mental health problems. We can refer to them as subcultural groups which exist within a larger racial population and share similar life experiences and a mutual sense of belonging.. For subcultural groups racial identity may be secondary and the primary identity may be either more in tandem with the mainstream culture where they reside or related to a ...

INTRODUCTION. The last 15 years were characterized by significant changes in clinical and hospital services, especially concerning to safety issues in patient care, which has become the focus of several publications on this topic[1-5].. However, despite numerous interventions to improve patient safety, progress has been slower than originally anticipated. A large-scale study in the USA has shown that error rates have remained relatively constant over the last few years, with one in 10 hospitalized patients likely to suffer an error during hospitalization[1].. In the field of surgical practice, technological and scientific advances have led to a significant increase in the number of procedures worldwide, which are often performed in unsafe conditions, interfering with the promotion and recovery of patients health[6]. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 7,000,000 complications and 1,000,000 deaths occur annually during or immediately after surgery[7].. According to Wachter[8], a ...
It is only in retrospect that I have begun to think of my father, Adrien Baillargeon as a superhero and a socio-cultural icon. In his time, the words had not yet come of age. Nevertheless, the words superhero and socio-cultural icon fit him to a tee long before he became a professional wrestler. At first, the image of a superhero was more in the French Canadian tradition of the legendary Paul Bunyan (Stevens 2001). At 65
301.00). These data, taken into account together with the low educational level of the women that were included in this sample, support that an adherence of 57% on an 18-month interval is a significant achievement.. Moreover, some cultural issues that might play a role here should be mentioned. First, there might be a cultural difference in understanding the effect of preventive and early detection interventions (22, 27, 28), especially in a country such as Brazil where there is no structured breast cancer screening program; thus, women are historically not used to undergoing regular mammography or other early detection measures. Second, certain cultures are more fatalistic about cancer and perceive fewer benefits from screening (29), which is, in the authors perception, an important issue in Brazil, especially in lower socioeconomic classes. Finally, in many of these women, concerns about their own healthcare are frequently neglected because of more urgent needs, such as childcare and ...
No. If anything is damaging the education system it is the cultural influences from God-knows-where that persuade some young people to think that ignorance is better than being informed.

Gender is fluid. This means that a persons gender does change over time. While many religions claim that gender is the same all our lives, they are misinformed and use the term incorrectly. To prove this, I will give you an example. When an infant is born with a penis, they are assigned the gender of a boy not a man. When does this transition from boy to man occur? This varies with the cultural identity and often rests on the shoulders of the person undergoing the transformation. I dont know when I became a man, it certainly wasnt when I hit puberty. To this day, many comment that I am just a big child. This does not change my sex, nor does it mean I am prepubescent. Often when males tease one another about being emotional they tell each other to stop being a woman. This doesnt imply that their penis has transformed into a vagina, but that they are acting in the manner of another gender (which is another rant for another day). This shows that gender changes over time, and in some cases ...

sex marriage make life more difficult for Catholics, in any way?. Your question would be easy to answer if this was simply a change to the political and legal landscape in our country.

And weve reached an interesting time with the pendulum on this issue swinging so rapidly.. 1) Our political and cultural conversation has been Twitterized. Id say sloganized, but its slightly more sophisticated than that. Theres no room for reasoned, intelligent debate. Our media reflects this, being nothing more than a series of Breaking News!! and a bunch of experts yelling at each other about it.. 2) Our cultural conversation has taken on the tone brought to us by the political motives of Bush & Co.
