Research is showing that most people do not even believe in religion at all anymore. I agree with Sotomayor when she says how does withholding marriage from LGBTQ community increase value to another. While I definitely understand why people were upset I believe it was step forward in the equal rights when it come to the LGBTQ community. There is definitely much more progress to be made but with time, I believe it
Many dislikes Hillary Clinton and says she is a lesbian. This lesbian rumor indicates fear. Critics fear that Hillary Clinton will take away men’s rights. It is false. Even though she shows so much support to women and the LGBT community, this does not give any proof she is a lesbian.
If you have a sexy woman, you are officially a man. Boys acts the way he is normally in front of his close friends. But when it comes to flirting men put a lot of effort , to look as manly as possible, because no man wants to be seen as gay infront of women. All males think that a woman will fall in love with the a pumped up chest and a rough voice. But, men do not know is that not all women are the same.
Even though female athletes are now becoming more accepted, they are still being challenged with a stigma known as “the image problem”, for example, all female athletes are lesbians. To avoid this “problem” the media employs a feminine apologetic in which they heterosexualize female athletes through emphasizing their relationships with men. In “Blood Sweat and Jeers” Knight mentions that female athletes continue to be confronted with the “image problem” or homophobia. She also notes that, “There is an underlying ear in society that participating in sports will encourage homosexuality or even convert female athletes into lesbians and prevent them from fulfilling their stereotypical domestic and maternal roles.” I strongly agree with this statement
Love is something that everyone, across the Nation, should be allowed to experience and enjoy at some point in their lives. It is unfortunate that love is and will be a challenge for some. Gay couples, for example, have been confronted with obstacles relative to their relationships and desire to openly express their love publicly without ridicule. Most Gays could not reveal their sexual preference with the fear of being judged. Based on media exposure, reality television or magazine articles, some Gay males have shared their fears and articulated their concerns about their love for the same sex.
But one of the important issues discussed in hot debates is the Gay marriage that has recently been permitted in the States. This was a real change in the whole country; many people welcomed the idea because they believe in total freedom of the human being and citizens’ liberties. But other groups mostly coming from religious backgrounds stood against what has been restructured in the amendment concerning this point. The debate will never come to an end simply because proponents and opponents will see it from different angles and no one will decide who is right and who is
Former New York Liberty basketball player Candice Wiggins stated that “98% of the WNBA are gay” (Avery, 2017). She has received harsh criticism for the comment because of her generalization. It is true that some of the current and former players have come out as being gay, however, there has been no statistical data to prove her claims. This type of stereotype is often believed due to the sport itself as being viewed as a man’s sport, unlike cheerleading, gymnastics, or softball. The societal norms of femininity and gender roles of women associated with basketball are often challenged by their involvement in the sport.
Living in this beautiful country I have come to realize that our government feels as if they need to make up for our past political parties mistakes. Although they had good intentions, it has only made it harder only the majority of the population. America is unknowingly judgmental towards any select person that has a belief or opinion that is not supported at the current time. As an example people have seen the harsh behavior gay people have faced over the last hundred years so they decided to make their beliefs the most important.
While for long time women have taken centre stage and have been pushing for women’s right and equality in a largely male dominated society. We forget that it is not only the women’s identity which is warped and under heavy scrutiny of the man-made categories that we have created but men as well. So when asking various men and women and questioning them on how they defined masculinity, they were left silently confused and unsure what they had to say. However, they answered it along the similar lines, “by possessing qualities traditionally attributed to men, such as aggressiveness.” Or “having qualities regarded as characteristic of men and boys, as strength, vigour, boldness, etc. ; manly” When asked about what traits fall under ideal masculinity, they stated the following traits
The term compulsory heterosexuality, although having been around since the eighties after being popularized by Adrienne Rich who coined it to speak about her experiences as a lesbian, is not one you may be familiar with. However despite not being familiar with the term, you are most likely familiar with the concept of it. A common “symptom” for, lack of a better word, of compulsory heterosexuality is one denying their sexual attraction to the same gender. This leads to gay men and lesbians marrying the opposite gender, and even having families and children of their own before they finally accept themselves. An example we may all know is rugby player Gareth Thomas, former captain of the British and Irish Lions, who had previously been married to a woman came out as gay (Weathers, H, 2009).
