Discussion: impact of ageism and adultism | SOCW 6051 – Diversity, Human Rights, and Social Justice | Walden University

 

Adultism refers to the oppression of young people by adults. The popular saying “children should be seen and not heard” is used as a way to remind a child of his or her place and reaffirm the adult’s power in the relationship. The saying suggests that children’s voices are not as important or as valid as an adult’s and they should remain quiet. Children are often relegated to subordinate positions due to socially constructed beliefs about what they can or cannot accomplish or what they should or should not do; this in turn compromises youth’s self-determination. This oppression is further highlighted when considering the intersection of age with race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation. You will be asked to consider all of these when reviewing the Logan case and Parker case.

By Day 3

Post an analysis of the influence of adultism in the Logan case. Then, explain how gender, race, class, and privilege interact with adultism to influence the family’s discourse related to Eboni’s pregnancy as well as other family dynamics.

Logans Case study:

 Logan Family Episode 2 Program Transcript FEMALE SPEAKER 1: These fries are really good. Hey, get your own. FEMALE SPEAKER 2: They are good. So what did you mom have to say about all this? FEMALE SPEAKER 1: She’s the stereotype, you know? Teenager, pregnant, dead-end future. Now, she’s got one for a daughter. FEMALE SPEAKER 2: You’re not a stereotype. You’re a beautiful young woman with a great future. FEMALE SPEAKER 1: Some future. I wanted to go away to college. Maybe get a scholarship. FEMALE SPEAKER 2: You can still do that. FEMALE SPEAKER 1: Not with a baby, I can’t. Maybe I can go to community college, but it’s not the dream. That social worker, Miss Warrick, you know what she said when I told her about me? Didn’t you use protection? Just threw it in my face. FEMALE SPEAKER 2: I talked to her once. She got her degree in stupid. FEMALE SPEAKER 1: Talking to my mom is even worse. With her, it’s like deja vu all over again. She got pregnant with me around the same age and she didn’t go away to college, she missed out on things she wanted. She told me all the time how her life would be totally different if she did have me. Some guilt trip, huh? That’s why she wants me to get an abortion, so it doesn’t happen again for me and for my kid. FEMALE SPEAKER 2: What do you want? FEMALE SPEAKER 1: I don’t even know. Here, you can have them. I’m not hungry anymore.
