Sports and Sociology
How are these connected?
How they apply to Me
Socialization- I have grown up with the same people my whole life, so most of my peers and I share similar values and beliefs.
Culture- The culture here in Rochester is fairly to similar to one another, so many of my traditions are the same to one another.
Norms- There are various taboos that are present in my group of peers, so often those affect how I act around others.
Sport and Sociology- Rochester is extremely prideful in our sports, and the student section is a good example of how sports can connect people from all different grades.
Where Are They?
In a historical event, gender roles were very present in America's society during the first few decades of the 20th century. During World War II, with all the men gone to fight the war the women had to step up and take their places. Women had jobs in factories, sales, and a women's baseball league was formed to replace the men's while they were gone. Although the 1950's housewife was a common idea in later years, the women had still proven that they can handle life just as well as the men.
These two aspects are very similar because they define how one person acts based on what is expected from them. They both have specifics expectations for a group of people, and that these groups both have their own values.
