As an example, this article
states that “girls are more likely to be affected by romantic relationships than are boys” (Loftus et al., 2011, p. 801) and backs this up by citing a chapter by Carol Gilligan (1996). Unfortunately, that was not the message of Gilligan’s chapter at all, and so I believe it was a poor choice of those authors to cite that source the way they did.
For this week’s discussion, please share an article that you cited in your literature review, and then share one other article that cites the article that you chose.
Please answer the questions above and offer some critique here, since every citation is an act of interpretation to an extent, and thus there is always room for us to critique that interpretation. Please remember to use in-text citations and provide references for both articles.
