Which of the following theories of deviance is LEAST associated with sociobiology? A) intelligence theory: low intelligence leads to deviant and criminal behavior B) social learning theory: we learn deviance from our peers C) XYY" theory: the extra Y chromosome in males causes criminal behavior D) body type theory: people with muscular bodies are prone to be criminals
Weegy: C) XYY" theory: the extra Y chromosome in males causes criminal behavior The first step in understanding deviant behavior is the study of cultural and social norms. [ Norms vary widely across cultures, and in some cases, behavior which is polite or expected in one culture may be considered rude or inappropriate in another. The study of norms includes the history of such norms, the evolutions of norms over time, and the study of changes which occur in norms as society itself shifts. For example, wearing gloves in public was once a social norm for ladies in much of the Western world, but would now be considered slightly eccentric unless the weather was cold. ] ] (More)
