This perspective represents a “personal trouble.”The sociological imagination incorporates the societal experience of COVID-19, including the loss of jobs, the closing of businesses and schools, and the cancelling of public events.
These examples represent the effects of the virus on the individual level and that of the larger society, broadening the impact of the virus from a “personal trouble” to a “public issue.”

Second Discussion Post- Answer the following prompt
This week we learned about unruly bodies, bodies that do not adhere to Western beauty and health ideals. Reflecting on the following reading “Who Gets to be Fit?” (Links to an external site.)and our other readings this week do the following assignment:
Since the beginning of shelter-in-place, you have probably seen numerous ads for gyms, diets, and exercise equipment to help you lose weight or maintain your size at home . For this assignment, you will conduct three google image searches: one will be for “fit woman,” another will be for “wellness,” and the last will be for “women’s health magazine.”
Use the reading to discuss: According to these images, what does it mean to be a fit, well, and healthy woman? What kinds of assumptions are being made about fitness, wellness, and health in these images that might marginalize women of color? Is there space for wellness for disabled bodies represented? What might an intersectional approach to fitness help us understand about how women of color perceive their bodies and what it means to be “healthy” and “fit”?
-Reference readings for this discussion post that are attached as well!!!
Written memos should be 2-3 single-spaced pages, 12-point font. Your memo should discuss topics or questions arising from the week’s reading. You might pull out specific passages to comment on or pull out what you see as a key concept, idea, or argument from the reading. These are thought pieces – they should be coherent, but they are not polished papers. You should end your memo by proposing at least one question for contemplation/discussion.*
Part 1: Define and differentiate between sex, gender, and sexuality.
Part 2: Distinguish between transgender, transsexual, intersexual, and homosexual identities.
Part 3: Throughout history we as American’s, as well as many other countries; subscribe to dominance – a dominant gender, (male) a dominant race,(caucasian) and now a dominant sexuality (heterosexual). However, some Indigenous North Americans embraced and found it to be of high honor to be ‘two-spirited.’ What does that mean and how would that make a difference for acceptance and inclusion for our own culture if we shared those views today?
Your submission should be 700-800 words minimum.

envy can affect scholarship, and that we, as emerging or full-fledged
sociologists, do not need to choose team culture or team structure

especially marked up this reading session, is yours? I had to laugh at
the philosophy envy examples as I knew someone in grad school who used
those exact words ALL the time! There are so many ideas to talk about
from insiders/outsiders to the types of envy sociologists may
internalize to the need/desire to impress others (both in our “camp” and
other disciplines) to the true goal of sociology and more. Can’t wait
to see what got you thinking! You must post before you can see other’s posts
For your post (click the reply button below), share ONE “big ideas” that was new or insightful for you.
Explain why this is significant to you and the scientific study of the
social world. Identify something you didn’t understand well or that
raised more questions for you. Be sure to use in-text citations when
appropriate and page numbers so others can easily find the passages
Narrow the broad category of interest (below) and then narrow again and again… until you reach specific federal legislation, a bill/statute that you will analyze.
Explore these topics and break them down into specific areas of study that you find exciting, and you can imagine getting involved in advocacy efforts to improve the social problems addressed by this policy.
Start with your top 2 priorities (food stamps and child abuse) and in each link below explore the topic and select at least 1 historic or current example of a federal statute/bill for discussion in class. Also, go to the link Social Work: Public Policy and explore your research ideas.
Develop a methodology, and a roadmap for completing the research and overall assignment.
Organize your research journey with a strategy
A few weeks ago, you first looked at a sample mind map related to sibling needs in response to older sibling incarceration. In this Discussion, you will return to that mind map to try to find connections between concepts in order to draft a theory that works to explain those connections.
Review the Learning Resources and Course Announcement.
Access the Sample Mind Map, which is the same sample from Week 5. Consider the connections between the concepts on the mind map.
Review the mind map to find connections between the concepts. Consider possible reasons for these connections and draft a theory based on that discussion.
Note that Discussions in the doctoral-level Human Services programs are areas for sharing ideas, reflecting on current research, and building community. Therefore, your grade, and the evaluation of your Discussion, will be based on the content and quality of your ideas. Note that APA style citations, references, and standard punctuation will not be assessed or graded. As a human services professional and doctoral student, you should always maintain a professional and academic tone. Please focus on shaping your ideas and supporting your claims with examples and research when applicable. However, every course has its own standards and requirements, so it is important to always check those requirements for each course and each assignment.
Respond to all bullet points in the prompt.
By Day 4
Write a 200- to 300-word initial post:
State the theory you drafted based on the connections between the concepts on the mind map.
