I think it’s counterintuitive that since the beginning of early civilization, men controlled the leniency of laws and consequences of rape, even tough in most cases, the men were the ones to blame for the incident. It is ironic that men and men alone were responsible for making these rules and choosing punishments, when in all actuality, it seems as though those specific laws were chosen to save the men who committed the crime and not to serve justice to the women who were violated and stripped of their dignity.
Most of these rules in fact– were against women. From time periods as early as 1780 BC to the 17th century, some consequences were owing her father money or property damage for taking their daughters virginity and women being thrown in rivers. It is counterintuitive that the women who were tragically targeted, are the ones paying the price perpetuating the cycle of assault considering nothing major happens to these men.
Up until 1998– 17 years ago– there were still laws in place saying if a woman was “impure”, the abuser could not get the charge of statutory rape. Also, it took until 1993, to make it illegal in our country to rape your wife. I find it counterintuitive that all of these laws are targeted towards women and women alone, yet set by men, the ones committing these crimes.
I think it is counterintuitive that doctors and professionals will always recommend a multi vitamin, but it turns out they aren’t as beneficial as they seem. Big vitamin corporations make a fortune off of everyone thinking they have a vitamin deficiency because their doctor says so.
Studies have been showing that the vitamins you should be taking, can actually cause health problems. The labeling of vitamins are not regulated, therefore, how do we know as consumers what they’re actually doing to our body?
I find it counterintuitive that the things society has drilled into our heads are not always what they seem to be.
I think it’s counterintuitive that poorer patients would rate their doctor’s lower than people of higher socioeconomic classes because people of lower incomes I would assume are more grateful for good care. I think the amount of doctors caring for poorer patients would ultimately be based on their location and the average income of the area their practice is located in.
From what I have personally seen, generally, wealthier people have more to complain about than poorer people. Therefore it is counterintuitive that someone who is poor, would give their doctor a lower rating than someone of money who wouldn’t think their care is good enough because they can afford better.
