Sexual Behavior

Write an essay explaining how these problems would be viewed by a sociological theory of your choosing. (You may find info about theory in chapter 1 of your text, as well as in the “Understanding Sociological Theory” resource in your Course Materials on the home page.) The three traditional major perspectives are:

-Symbolic Interactionism
-Conflict Theory

You may, however, use other appropriate sociological theories you have encountered in your learning.

Using this theory, address the following questions:

-How can the theory you’ve chosen help explain why the social problem exists, or why it qualifies as a problem?
-How can the theory help explain why the problem still exists?
-How do you think the theory might inform possible solutions to the problem?
