Identify and apply a theory from goode text to your topic


Topic: Sexual deviance and society.

Textbook: Goode, E. (2016). Deviant Behavior (11th ed). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Education Inc.

In choosing a topic, consider the issues of deviance related to the topic, not just the topic itself. For instance, if you chose to do your paper on obesity, you would want to discuss why it is considered deviant, how it is labeled as deviant, or the effects of this deviant status, etc. versus simply explaining the medical causes and conditions/health concerns with obesity.

To be successful in this paper, you will want to develop a specific research question to guide your research. You should also identify the perspective (positivist or constructionist) which you are taking in your paper and you will need to apply at least one related theory to your analysis.

Your paper should be a minimum of 6 pages (which does not include the work-cited page), typed, and double spaced and should consist of a description of the attitude, behavior, or condition you are researching and why it is presently considered deviant in U.S. society. You will use the APA format for citations and references.
