Document Summary

Liazos attacked sociologists of deviance for studying nuts, sluts and deviated perverts. He also regarded a bias of these scientists towards actors who engage in the violations of society"s sexual norms. But, in fact it is simply more deviant to engage in this study than corporate crime and high-level political malfeasance. It is liazos that holds the bias, not sociologists of deviance. These scientists focus more on the sexual deviant actions because it is a prime example of deviance. Sociologists discuss sexual violations as deviance because such behavior tends to be more discrediting and stigmatizing that most other forms of deviance. We construct uncountable social identities on the basis of what we do, or have done, sexually and this is indicated by the number and strength of the norms trying to govern it. Corporate crime is an extremely minor form of deviance since only a small number of people can engage in it.
