Reaction Paper #1 Two topics discussed in class thus far that interest me the most are nature vs. nurture and the cult of domesticity. These two topics are interrelated, both dealing with the way girls and women are supposed to behave and what activities they are supposed to be involved in. The first topic discussed in class that interested me the most was the argument of nature versus nurture, as it applies to the types of activities young girls and boys are involved in. There is a stigma that it is nature that decides what interests young girls and boys will have. Girls are supposed to play with Barbies, play dress up, and play nice with each other. Boys are supposed to play video games, run around outside, and wrestle with each other. Girls aren’t supposed to have an interest in sports or any physical activity, while boys are supposed to want to play sports. The opposite theory is nurture-the way parents and those around children shape them and how they raise their children.

    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.
