Psychology of Human Sexuality CPSY621-EXAM: used to have a skit to start class. But in this climate, people have tried to cancel,so he doesn’t have those skits anymore. However, being offended shouldn’t mean youdon’t get to speak. Must be able to think criCcally and not be too sensiCve. Now doesn’tdo skit cause people got offended-EXAM: criCcal thinking, skepCcal, open minded-EXAM Ch 1: know what is universally happening or not happening. But don’t have toknow which tribe specifically. (ie. Happens in all, happens in some, happens in none)-EXAM CH2 : cross-species similariCes and differences-EXAM QuesCon on sexual health (p. 20 7thediCon)-EXAM: sexual orientaCon. We do not know what makes people homosexual. Oren’sopinion: biological influences (not geneCcs). Dr. Ray Blanchard, hypothesised that whatmade (males) some people gay is the birth order (ie. Number of older brothers predictsyour chance of being gay). In the womb the baby has a Y chromosome, and the mothersbody doesn’t know what it is, and something happens with the anCbodies to fight offthe Y chromosome. (protect against alien force, does something to the brain that makesthe kid gay) – builds higher anCbodies to fight Y chromosome. Only applies to gayboXoms-EXAM: Straight males, with several older brother – more likely to have a kink, feCsh etc.(Same phenomenon that applies to gay boXom males applies to men with a kink)-EXAM: ChrisCna Hoff Sommers.

Then the centers for disease control staCsCcian Kaney Hsiao: “amongEmergency Department visits made by females, the percent having physical abuse byspouse or partner is 0.02% in 2003 and 0.01% in 2005.”-EXAM: we know for a fact that some women lie about sexual assault. “What percentageof claims of sexual assault are false?” can find numbers of up to 80% - because they arelooking at convicCon numbers. It is VERY hard to convict someone of sexual assault.Correct answer: we don’t know-EXAM: the thing that is just as bad as false studies is hypocrisy. Ex: #metoo. A famousfeminist lesbian philosophy prof was alleged of harassment and assault. But peopleturned against the vicCm (white, gay, male), but people immediately discredited himbecause of who they were convicCng. – hypocrisy and why people can’t trustideologically driven movements.-Rate of sexual harassment I high school and university?o75%-EXAM: what is the rate of sexual harassment in high school and university? A: 75%. Whyis it so high? Because their operaConal definiCon. What definiCon are they using tocome to this 75%-How many women are raped in their lifeCme?
