Esolen’s idea is that both gay marriage and feminism ought to undermine the key role of marriage, which is to unite two people from the opposite sex who do not understand each other (29). Marriage is more or less of a bridge between the chasm of the two sexes and gay marriage as well as feminism or sex revolution blow up the bridge. Esolen explains that culture will not survive if the two sexes are not united. This is so because men and women complement each other emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Esolen explains that men and women are designed for each other, and he calls that the plain truth of nature.
Andrew Sullivan believes that denying homosexuals legal marriage is an insult to their equality. Sullivan feels that preconceptions of marital relationships that refuse homosexual marriage are ignorant, attempting to show that homosexuals are more than capable of such a commitment. He claims that legalizing homosexual marriage will help society, providing LGBT children with a healthy model for relationships and recovering the dignity of homosexual adults. Sullivan, despite his overwhelming knowledge on the subject, fails to demonstrate how domestic partnership serves as one of the best arguments for legalizing homosexual marriage. The author attempts to show the similarities between heterosexual marriage and domestic partnership by listing the various legal benefits shared between the two (31).

Instead of society stereotyping for others on what makes us too masculine or feminine, we should focus on our own happiness. 2. How does the discussion of sex verses gender emerge from this documentary?
In that case the “Black Liberals” where born again. With the history, knowledge, and experience, Angela Davis supports a connection between the powers behind suffering, not only to Americans but as she mentioned the Black Panther movement in Newland, Brazil, and Israel. The struggles seem to have a symbolic relationship in every weakness within the culture. Other racial group’s targeted minority was talked about as they faced them in times.

This chapter will look at the content of Kentridges work, questioning his approach and reasoning for narrating the South African apartheid and delving into his position somewhere in-between those who were conflicted. In addressing such themes the artist explores the possibilities of creating histories and relationships, he proposes a new way of seeing, alternatives to the tragedies which occurred and in whole a solution to look at man differently and bury the oppression of minorities. William Kentridge narrates personal and collective histories as primary subject matter in his practice . The complexity of daily existence is presented to viewers inviting them to empathise and understand the harsh realities which the artists works highlight ( p.10 carolyn christov). The artist highlights the difficulties which arise when one is a survivor and a witness of such events,(skira p.34) However perhaps this in-between position which the artist has found himself in has allowed him create work as an
The reaction of the public was mixed to the film, considering that it was released in the 21st century. Had the film been released in the 20th century, the negative criticism would have by far, exceeded the positive criticism. The quality of writing, acting, and directing within the film was considered to be one of a high and desirable class.

For individuals who are against homosexuality, they thought negatively about the film.

This article will bolster my argument by providing these numerous examples and allowing me to explore and present the thoughts of another writer exploring a very similar topic. Ultimately, in my paper, this source will serve as a jumping-off point for many of my arguments.
Post 1 Micheal Tan’s article talks about his opinion of the film Zombading. He is not happy about the stereotypes in the film and the way Zombading provide a potential opportunity for the homophobia people to laugh at LGBT characters. To me, stereotypes are not a problem because the film is full of representations which are not stereotypes. Like Jigs. Even though I disagree with Tan on other parts of his argument, I do agree with his point that it is quite disturbing that the father took Remington’s curse, so that his son could live as a straight man again.
Queerbaiting exploitats the loyalies of lgbt viewers as it hints at the inclusion of queer character's without providing any real representation. In an attempt to hold on to viewers, they continued to imply the possibility of making the characters canonically queer, and then turn around and deney that there is intentions to make these characters anything other than hetrosexual. Shows and films do this in an attempt to draw in viewers who want to see queer characters without offending those who do not. In fact, it is this “no homo” response that makes queerbaiting so problematic, as it reduces homosexuality to a gag, while also suggesting that it’s wrong and undesirable with the underlying assumption, “of course we’re not gay, how could you even think
