Deviance

Please choose one of the following prompts and respond to it in no less than 300-400 words. In your response, you must fully answer all aspects of the question and support your answer with reference to course materials (textbook, supplementary readings, videos, etc).

  • Choose a social group that was once considered "deviant," but is now considered more acceptable in our society. How did this group migrate from deviance to normality? How was that change possible, given what you now know about theories of culture, meaning, deviance, etc.?
  • Choose a social group that is currently struggling against a deviant label. What actions does this group engage in that society considers deviant? Why does society have an interest (or at least think it has an interest) in informally or formally sanctioning those actions? Are there any social factors that have pressured that group to engage in the actions in question?
