There might be little evidence to prove this claim, but group members will not rationalize any of their assumptions; they claim they are defeating the devil and helping God. This is an example of rationalization. In the dispute between gay people and supporters and anti-gay, straight individuals rationalization is made in both groups. The groupthink article states,“ Group members rationalize any resistance to the assumptions they have made no matter how strongly the evidence may contradict their basic assumptions, members behave so as to reinforce those assumptions continually.” Telling people they deserve to die is justifiable because the bible says, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death.” Physically harming and verbally harming other American’s is okay because of personal views.
They are constantly pushed to prove their masculinity and the worst deviation from hegemonic masculinity is homosexuality. An attitude that rendered the life of my friend, Luigi, difficult since he was not willing to hide his sexual orientation and faced disapproval and discrimination including from his family. The relationship between masculinity and morality is complicated since masculinity requires auto-control and a high sense of morality, while men are perceived as violent and predatory. The concept of overly dominant violent heads of family is rejected today and violence against women is condemned. However, on one occasion I had the questionable pleasure of talking to a young man that told me with great pride about beating his supposedly unfaithful girlfriend and her supposed lover severely.
Rachel was the daughter of Reverend Brown, who brainwashed the people of the town to radically believe that God must come before anything else. In simpler terms, anyone who dared to speak against that concept, would be hated by the people of Hillsboro. Because of this, Rachel felt pressured to follow her father’s rules.

There is a statistic that gets thrown around a lot regarding how much of human communication is intimately tied to body language. When humans talk about gender and sexuality, speech becomes especially embodied, a performance for others to interpret, internalize, or judge. But if this is true, the speech-action dichotomy falters. Pornography, one of the ways humans communicate about gender and sexuality, is both action and speech. Catharine A. Mackinnon’s article Pornography, Civil Rights, and Speech is arguing for access to legal recourse to those who have been harmed by the pornography industry.
By denying the same right as anybody else just because you are different is a clear form of discrimination, and it goes against the constitution.

Trying to argue that violence and rage is unnecessary, Barry states that we need to “try to be more considerate,” or “i will kill you” (50). Being the very last sentence of his essay, this threatening statement shows how rage can lead people to desire violence against others. This being so, it is also the most relatable to the audience out of every other example the author has written in his essay. The extremities of this last comment make the audience feel as if their levels of rage are acceptable, or they feel as if the writer has more rage than they do.
When thinking about hate crime the first aspect that would come to mind is violence against an individual or group based on the color of their skin.
