2/14/08 Notes Binge Drinking (4 shots in a hour) in one month at Stony Brook (Study done in class) Yes No Men 53% 42% (statically drawn) Women 47% 53% (Results: not statically significant) Intersex 100% Conclusion: Female binge drink as much as male binge drink Drunk Driving: Men: 13% Women: 2% -- reason: females get guys to drive them home Male role is to drive (traditional male role) Females reverse role in drinking but not driving Where ever we go, gender role plays its part Gender role: Men drink while Women combine both drinking and drugs Proposed theory in class: Women are prone to binge drink but don’t have the chance to do so because of parental supervision – Older generation imposing their gender role on younger generation Gender Violence Astonishing amount of gender violence between people who are intimate Most of the time it is inter-gender violence It is a one sided problem for females but not men – women are the ones often fighting with men —inflicting damage on men but doesn’t inflict any real physical harm because men are stronger while when men hit women, they do damage Between 1-4 million a year are hurt by an intimate (former boyfriends, husband) and require real medical care 1500 women a year are killed/murder -- Always a male killing the female – in the news, always in the same section, has become a regular part of the news – men and women with the same fights and problems -- leads to physical violence and murder
