Tutorial 1 - Post-Tutorial Activity Aiman Hussaini ID: 21093775 Passage A: Grade 8 Student The sociology of physical activity dictates how one is influenced by societal standards to participate in physical activities related to health and well-being like playing online games with friends and watching videos. This behaviour comes from the contrasting backgrounds that separate certain races, religions, age, genders, and wealth from others, explaining why an individual from a low financial level is likely to play sports like soccer that require inexpensive equipment, whereas wealthy individuals play sports that require costly equipment like skiing and golfing. Boys and men who are less interested in athletics are socially excluded since they do not fit into the standard that society has set for them, conveying a message that boys and men are supposed to be more interested in sports than women. However, in modern time, more women participate in sports than they did in the past years since they only played sports that would not involve physical contact or muscle development. Men engaged in sports like wrestling and boxing that were deemed as aggressive and required physical strength while women did not as they were encouraged to play sports that were more graceful and delicate in nature. Passage B: Professor The sociology of physical activity dictates how one is influenced by societal standards to participate in physical activities related to health and well-being like playing online games with friends and watching videos. This behaviour comes from the contrasting social locations that separate certain races, religions, age, genders, and socio-economic status from others, explaining how social affluence can determine the opportunities that an individual receives like playing sports based on one's ability to afford equipment for skiing in comparison to soccer. Boys and men who are not sports enthusiasts face social ostracism, conveying a message of oppression caused by the societal norms, suggesting that boys and men are supposed to be more interested in sports than women. However, in modern time, more women participate in sports than they did in the past years as they only played sports that would not involve physical contact or muscle development. Men engaged in sports like wrestling and boxing that supported the ideas of heterosexual male dominance, emphasizing aggressiveness while women were consigned to marginal positions that encouraged them to play sports that were more graceful and delicate in nature.
