Brandon Ivey Sex and Controversy Final Draft I choose to compare “The Eye of the Beholder: Parents View on Sex of Newborns”, and “The Scientist in Society”. I liked the way both of those articles addressed issues in society that not everybody might be aware of. While they focused on completely different topics they are both important. Something that they do share in common is how the subjects are being underestimated.

While it isn’t that extreme parents are still expecting and forcing their children to conform to society’s expectations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
