This youths experienced of estrangement from their family and friends, invisibility and harassment at school that may cause a mental ill-health, dropping on their school, and homelessness.

And they also experienced marginalization in the society that leads to them of being vulnerable group(Subhrajit,
Not only does gender identity weakens them but rather living in a partriarchal society, where gender variation is evident makes them so miserable. According to some studies, due to exclusion, social rejection and harassment, the LGBT community is experiencing so much depression that can lead to suicidal thoughts. According to an Irish study, they find that nearly 60% of LGBT youths are liable in psychological distress. Many researchers claim that poor mental health can increase stress that results in lowered
Though many were negatively affected by the beauty standards of this time, few African Americans decided to rebel against the societal views of skin color. In The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison, society 's ideas of beauty have negatively affected Pecola and her mother Pauline; however, Claudia rebels against these standards.
There is also the truth that member of the queer community are more likely to experience violence, poverty, and mental illness as a result of discrimination they face, and therefore the darkness of 1950s queer literature could be seen as merely documenting the difficult lives queer individuals faced. Regardless of a work’s portrayal of homosexuality, publishing works with explicitly queer characters was difficult, even for established
One of the biggest highlighted event in the movie would be when the white people made separate bathrooms for the black people in their houses. People were disgusted about the idea of having to use the same toilet as a black person because of the “diseases” they carry and wanted seperate bathrooms. This was also just another way that white people to keep blacks under them by making them feel inferior. We also have the case of the segregated buses where the white sit in the front and black sit in the back. At this point of the movie a young black man had gotten shot and the driver boarded the bus to kick off all the black people just by saying “colored people off”.
Furthermore, the process of racialization is inherently gendered. Because Black people are not humanized, they are not permitted access to gender in the same way as their white counterparts. During slavery, Black women simultaneously faced gendered violence including rape while being hypermasculinized to perform manual labor. On the other hand, Black men could not access masculine privileges of protecting their families or owning property.

Importantly, another contributing factor to men oppression is racial factors. Various inequalities exist between people of different races, and men are vulnerable to mistreatment arising from ethical, cultural and color differences. In most cases, the minority groups always suffer, for example, in the US history the blacks were subjected to more suffering than the white due to what is believed to be race superiority. In his book, Andrew Kimbrell ‘ ' Masculine Mystique ' ' indicate the oppression that the African Americans underwent in search of good jobs, homes and a better life for their families (Kimbrell 47). Also in the Native Son story, Bigger is being oppressed due to his race as he is a black American; he even works for a white
Even though slavery was abolished after the Civil War, Blacks or African Americans are still fighting for their freedom. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness simply did not seem consistent with the practice of chattel slavery. Slaves who were freed suffered a lot of mental and emotional breakdown that has been passed on through generations and generations to come. Even though the individuals who enslaved slaves are no longer alive yet they set the stage for a lot of irritation, dislike and hurt felt within the black or African Americans community today. A lot of African Americans are living in poor housing, lack of occupation opportunities, health care and education.
In recent years, the Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community of Jamaica has become an international concern as individuals struggle to survive in the dangerously homophobic environment. The structural abuse, discrimination, and continued acts of violence have lead to hundreds of LGBT Jamaican citizens attempting to seek asylum in Great Britain, Canada, and the United States (Citation). In this paper, I will be investigating why the LGBT community Is the most persecuted group in Jamaica, how it relates to the human rights framework in terms of the rights violated and actions that are being taken, and why it matters. For many years, Jamaica has been called the most homophobic country in the world (Time magazine). Over 85% of
As I said before, there are now a lot of prejudices against bisexual. Being attracted by both genders sometimes, they are sometimes rejected by both straight and gay people for not being really a part of their community. Some people do say that they are bisexual to keep hiding their homosexuality but most of them really consider themselves bisexual, which is not easier than coming out as gay. Mostly when many people consider your sexual orientation as a lie. “They are just confused” Well, you have been too.
