Context: A very large number of culture wars have been waged in this society over the last hundred years, many are still going on. Recent and ongoing culture wars have arisen around social issues such as police violence, control of the internet, access to health care, transgender rights, environment, and sustainability, and more. An essential element of how sociologists define culture wars is that mainstream cultural values are challenged. Examples of culture wars being waged today in which opposing sides are becoming increasingly polarized include: wearing masks, remote versus in-person schooling, and voting rights. Opposing sides are positioned around American cultural values of individual choice and personal freedom versus support for the public good and the role of government.

Some, not all, culture wars also involve issues of social justice. This essay asks you to identify and discuss one example of a social justice issue that evolved into a culture war. Select one of the social issues below and address each bulleted point as you complete this second essay assignment.
