    > The sociological perspective is described as seeing the general in the particular. In this essay I will attempt to apply the sociological perspective to analyze song lyrics from the first verse of the song My Block by Tupac Shakur (see appendix for lyrics). Tupac (1971-1996) is the most famous gangster rap artist of all times. He was well known for his lyrics and their ability to express the grief of the Black community. He was an advocate for Black rights and very much against the societal system and class societies. Many say he exaggerated the conditions under which the Black community and the lower class were in because he was a wealthy man rapping about suppression. To other’s he was part of the petite-bourgeoisie, but he was consistent in attempting to better the conditions under which the lower class were in.…

    Welcome to WST 371: a 7 week online course. This course will examine how women and sexuality have been depicted in American popular culture from the 1950’s to current day. We will utilize themes and images from various formats, including movies, television, and popular books as well as analyzing different products and stores in considering what ideas and images about sexuality are being marketed and sold. We will consider questions such as: Have popular images of sexuality for women changed over time? If so, what has allowed these changes to occur? How do these popularly constructed ideas about sexuality affect attitudes concerning issues of romance and relationships, danger and violence or sexuality and sexual orientation? Is sexuality constructed for all women the same way? How do issues of race, class, ethnicity or age affect these depictions?…

    Bikers have always been seen as “outcast” – they don’t always live the lives of the majority, and usually refuse the typical values the society imposes on us by engaging in outrageous behavior. The Hells Angels are members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club who typically ride Harley Davidson motorcycles. Despite common inclination towards spelling their name as “Hell’s Angels”, the official site claims the missing apostrophe represents many types of “hell”. However, grammatically correct, there still should be an apostrophe after Hells, even if using it in a plural sense.…

    “Sexuality is something that society produces in complex ways. It is a result of diverse social practices that give meaning to social activities, of struggles between those who have the power to define and regulate, and those who resist. Sexuality is not given, it is a product of negotiation, struggle and human agency.” —Jeffrey Weeks (1986: 25)…
