Intolerance results to homo-negativity that becomes the occurrence of being homophobic or the fear of gay men and lesbian women. There is also the influence of media. In the western media the portrayal of homosexuality as it is very different of how it should be, as they show homosexual lifestyle and relationships as blissful, healthy and focused more in commitment but in real life it is not (Kokoski, n.d.). This portrayal of causes a misconception and stereotyping of gender roles by the media viewers. In this research, perception of young adults are taken as they play a big role in social
Sexual orientation and gender identity leads to discrimination, abuse or suicide/killing. The most painful of all being rejected from your own family and religious communities. Everyone feels as if they can 't express who they are. Their afraid of people judging them or harassing
If some members of the society think that LGBT people should be criminalize, then it would also be important to criminalize adultery—this is against the Ten Commandments in the same bible. There is need to tolerate the LGBT community; we should change laws if we expect to change attitudes against the community. There are homosexual men who never engage in a sex relationship with other men and the heterosexual men who will engage in it. Also, there are heterosexual couples who do so too. The society fails to discriminate against the heterosexual couples who take part in buggery.
Everyone is born equal, whether their black or white, homosexual or heterosexual. Most people may have sexual preferences and others will treat them different for how they is. Even though the Bible maintains a hard statement on Heterosexual. Homosexuality has become a reality in this world and it is time to stop it. Being homosexual may prevent you from living a normal life.
While the majority of the population believes that the legalization of gay marriage will have negative impact on the society, gay activists claim that it is against basic civil rights to prohibit them from marrying. The constitution gives us many civil rights and remedies. One of the liberty granted to us is to be in pursuit of happiness, which homosexual people are not allowed to chase. They cannot be married to the person they love. It violates their freedoms.
My second reason for supporting LGBT/ same-sex marriage is the reason for discrimination against marriage. The UDHR article number 7 illustrates that all people are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination. Furthermore, article 1 of the UDHR also indicates that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. We should act towards one another in a spirit of a brother. 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.
If a woman can work more than the man, or if the man can cook more than the woman in an opposite-sex relationship without being considered as a change in sex in the relationship, then the same should apply to a couple of the opposite sex. Mays concludes, “[i]n the case of a gay male relationship, however, the key point is that neither of us is the girl of the relationship, no matter which side of the scale we fall on” (Mays, 719).To simply explain it, Mays also concludes that “[w]hen it boils down to it, all of us, gay and straight alike comprise many characteristics-some are considered masculine, and some are considered feminine” (719). Thus, whichever the sex the person belongs to does not determine their gender role in a relationship. Having straight, and gay couples as friends has provided me with the insight that allows me to see my friends as the sex they are, yet capable of practicing any responsibilities, or characteristics that a traditional gender role might practice. In a lesbian couple, one of my friends is more masculine and the other is more feminine.
The rights of LGBT community are still currently seeking universal acceptance. Even though the declaration adopted by the United States in 1948 states, "Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration without distinction of any kind ..." has not helped as it does not cover the sexual orientation of an individual. As a result, some countries in the world are developing techniques and systems to begin the legislative favor and enforcing laws that protect LGBTs against discrimination. Even an influential organization like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are joining to finally eliminate discrimination by constantly protecting them against crimes and advancing equal views on each sexuality. According to Chinggu, LGBT couples around the world were still excluded.
Each person has the right to choose who to love whatever his race, nationality, or religion is, similar to having the right to select the candidate you want to vote for in the political elections, but what about the right to choose who you wish to marry? Lately people are arguing about legalizing same sex marriage and in some countries such as the United States, the law has already been applied in all states since 2015. However, many societies till today are strictly against gay marriage and consider it as a taboo such as Middle Eastern countries and a multiple of examples. Even though same sex marriage is widely supported by many people, it will remain to be an erroneous decision because of several Religious and health reasons. Between the
Also, saying you accept homosexuals but you are against gay marriage is really weird. “Oh yes, of course I support LGBT, but no, they cannot get married like straight people can.” That is so stupid. Also, not “unnatural.” Homosexuality is found in over 450 species. Homosexuality is found in only one. People of all sexualities should support heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, or any other sexuality, because all love is valid.
