I will choose Option 2 and possibly use the title “The Moral Panic of the US patriarchal society in response to female Hookup culture and sexual promiscuity.” The main object of analysis is the US hookup culture, female promiscuity, and why the US society develops moral panic. Males, who engage in hookups and
promiscuous sex, are viewed positively, while women are viewed negatively. The paper explores if the growing hookup culture among US females is their way of asserting themselves and achieving equality with males. And whether moral panic related to such changing sexual scriipts is an attempt of the patriarchal society to maintain the gender roles and power balance. The first theoretical framework is the works of Gagnon and Simon on Sexual Scripts and sexual conduct. I will explore the layered three dimensions: ‘cultural scenarios,’ ‘interpersonal scenarios,’ and ‘intra-psychic scenarios.’ I will investigate what genders the existing sexual scriipts benefit the most and infer what scriipts the US society considers appropriate for both genders. Another theoretical framework is moral panic and the works of Stanley Cohen. I will explore the stages of moral panic and agents of moral panic. I will investigate why the US society panics that woman use various hookups and dating apps/websites and freely engage in promiscuous sex. Also, I intend to use the ideas of Erich Goode and Nachman Ben-Yehuda in the book “Moral Panics: The Social Construction of Deviance” to investigate why female promiscuity and hookups are viewed as deviant and inappropriate by US society. The paper will also include the concepts of sexual norms, social norms regarding sexuality, deviance and restrictive behavior, sexual desire, symbolic interactionism, and sexual behavior. It will incorporate the works of Gagnon (2004), Gagnon & Simon (2005), Green (2008), Kinsey et al. (1953), Plummer (1982), and Simon & Gagnon (1986) that we covered in class.
Profesor Notes regarding the Proposal Hi, I think this sounds like an intriguing paper topic. As you work on this, think more about what you want to argue specifically. For example, are you arguing that U.S. culture has seen a shift in gendered sexual scriipts around women’s sexuality from one of “passivity” to one that allows somewhat greater space for the assertion of female agency and pleasure, but perhaps in a way that nevertheless involves moral panic? I’m just making that up – it would be up to you to clarify whether that’s the case, but just thinking aloud here with respect to the argument. There is a double standard when it comes to men and women’s involvement in hookup culture and that’s an important point to explore. But that’s not quite novel enough to be the main argument.
So, think a bit more about what main point you want to make about moral panics and women’s involvement in hookup culture. It’s not (yet) clear what the specific connection is here so if you can draw that out for your reader in your main argument, that will provide a nice thread for the rest of the paper (but only if you think the connection can be clearly articulated – if not, step back and ask what you really want to illustrate in this paper and then work on developing that as your argument).
Good initial ideas!
I am dowlounding some examples of other students that get A last year . Also the detail instruction for this reseach paper . And the readings .

Paper Requirements for BOTH options 1 and 2 above:
Argument/thesis: All papers MUST have a clear, identifiable, and interesting argument regardless of the option you chose. In a paper this length, the argument should ideally come by the end of the introductory paragraph. Please bold and underline your argument.
Integration of course texts: All papers must draw upon and cite at least FOUR readings from this course. One (or more) of those readings should be one of the theoretical/conceptual frameworks we’ve covered in the course. Examples include: Freud/psychoanalysis; Sexual scriipts theory; Foucauldian discourse analysis/power-knowledge; essentialism/constructivism; sexual fields analysis; Rubin’s charmed circle (or any of the central ideas from Thinking Sex); medicalization or biomedicalization; racialization, etc. Note that these frameworks are not necessarily mutually exclusive – one can discuss racialization vis-a-vis medicalization, for example, and certainly Foucault can be relevant for both. However, you must demonstrate your ability to draw upon key concepts/theories from the course and show how they are relevant to your argument and analysis. It’s up to you how you integrate the other chosen texts, but one strategy is to review empirical examples of how other scholars have drawn upon theory for their analysis, to provide background for your topic, to illustrate a related or contrasting point, and so on. For example, if you are writing on a topic that has anything to do with medicalization, you could include a few paragraphs that review other empirical examples of medicalization to help provide background and illustrate what the term means in practice. Most of the empirical articles in the course do the same kind of work in their literature review sections (typically somewhere in the first third of the paper but after the introduction). Consider how you might do something similar for your paper by replicating the author’s style.
Overall formatting requirements: 10-12 pages max; double spaced, 1-inch margins (please check), Times New Roman, size 12 font. PLEASE INCLUDE PAGE NUMBERS. Please include a title page, abstract, and a reference list (not included in the page count). The page limit is meant seriously. I will stop reading after 12 content pages:)
APA formatting: Papers should use APA formatting for title page, abstract, body/content, in-text citations and references. Papers that do not include these formatting elements will be marked down a letter grade. For an overview of APA paper elements, please see (Links to an external site.). Note that APA recently released the 7th edition guide. You may copy and paste references from the REFERENCE LIST of the syllabus (note that references listed in the course calendar grid of the syllabus and in CANVAS are NOT necessarily in APA format, so use those in the sylabus bibliography only). Please double check APA formatting by using a reference guide such as Purdue’s Online Writing Lab. (Links to an external site.) Note that all in-text citations much be included in the reference list and all entries in your reference list should appear somewhere in the paper as an in-text citation.
Use of direct quotations (caution): Please use direct quotations wisely (i.e., don’t quote some mundane aspect of a text) and sparingly (i.e., quotes should be limited, and only used to further your analysis). There must be a clear reason for any direct quotations in the paper, which means you are analyzing that quotation or reflecting on it. Don’t directly quote something as a stand-in for your own words. Friends don’t let friends directly quote for no apparent reason. In practice, this means that you as the author “speak back” to the direct quotation by restating its meaning in your own words usually just after the direct quotation, unpack and analyze it, and/or otherwise clearly indicate its importance for your analysis.
