Religion creates a filter inside an individual, which can create an opposing viewpoints and judgments on such that involve sexuality. There are differences in the way people express sexuality. For example a person who doesn’t have religious boundaries on sexuality can just be horny and have sex for no purpose but to pleasure themselves. While on the other hand a person who has religious beliefs may wait to do sexual things until there married because there’s more meaning to it and you get more out of it if you wait.
Religion controls many aspects of life and can lead to many personal judgments. There tends to be more diseases than there are people, people may stray away from sexuality because of this, and on the other hand, you cannot get a disease from violence. Being violent may cause injuries, although you are able to recover most of the time, and often violence is a choice. Being sexual is a choice as well, but its consequences can be much more life threatening and when being involved in sexual activity, you don’t intend to be a victim of a disease, it just happens.
Engaging in sexual activity can also lead to emotional issues and you may feel connected to that person afterwards. But when you engage in violence it’s most likely because of hate and you can easily let those feelings go. Guys in mainstream American culture have a certain stigma attached to them. In our culture guys have a reputation of only thinking with their hormones. Where as woman are the ones considered to have strong morals and think with their brain. These certain stereotypes come from media, our enviroment which we were raised in and our social surroundings.
With all these social influences it’s becoming more popular for boys to be raised to think it’s okay to think with their hormones. While on the otherside girls are being taught to be independent and to realize sexuality is more than what you learn in your Sex Ed class. These two differences in boys and girls causes a lot of friction and often leads to unnessary violence because of sexuality. In conclusion sexuality is more taboo than violence in mainstream American culture .
Religion has a major impact on this because it creates a filter inside an individual, which can create an opposing viewpoints and judgments on such that involve sexuality. Disease is another major impact on this because engaging in sexuality is a choice,but its consequences can be much more life threatening and when being involved in sexual activity, you don’t intend to be a victim of a disease, it just happens. I think that the biggest impact on sexuality is the sterotypes and personal morals of boys and girls which creates friction and violence.
