Describe and discuss a body related cultural practice (we have many) from the United States. Explain how others might view this as being just as heinous.

We often have difficulty understanding how our own customs and traditions could be viewed any way other than as right. In that regard, cultural relativism (viewing a custom from the other culture’s perspective) is an important issue to emphasize.Socially constructed ideas about what is attractive are deeply gendered, change over time, and vary from place to place. One thing that seems to be consistent is that beauty is not natural, and must be achieved by doing body work.

  2. Describe and discuss a body related cultural practice (we have many) from the United States. Explain how others might view this as being just as heinous.
