Homosexuality, through the media especially, is associated with flamboyant, effeminate males who have an attraction to other males. The main cause of this stereotyping could be due to the media picking and choosing what kind of individual it wants to portray through its media outlets in relation to homosexuality. Although this has some truth to it, not all homosexuals are flamboyant or effeminate, or as otherwise termed, camp, even though they do have an attraction to people of the same sex. So the question could be, is a person born gay? Or are there bio-psycho-sociological factors that contribute to a person’s sexuality?
Homosexuality is considered to have roots in some cases to nature versus nurture. Surroundings and background can prove to influence someone’s sexuality as stressors within a family, certain events, and invoked ideas are all present to sway how one thinks. It is evident that the character of Grendel thinks differently involving his rants of existence. His interest of mankind in general has left him fixated on humans and his isolation did not allow for him to be a part of their society. The conditions of his life could insinuate homosexual behavior just from the method of nature development.

It is very important for students to be exposed to the issues earlier so they don’t have to run into them in the future. The story adds reassurance to the world.
Whether it is used in a specifically homophobic way or as a general negative term, the fact that it is being used as an insult shows the underlying negativity to men that are attracted to other men. It supports the long and ongoing
The poem, Useless Boys,is one that portrays a feeling of indignation, rebellion and finally, understanding by two boys who grew up with bitter views of their fathers’ onerous jobs.

Ultimately, Hughes “Why, You Reckon” represents that in the end everyone has their own motive, even if they say otherwise. Hughes uses characters of similar circumstances to bring them together for a seemingly common goal. Keeping in mind these circumstances, The African American man asks the narrator “Man, ain’t you hongry? Didn’t I see you down there at the charities today, not gettin nothin – like me?”(Hughes 253). They are able to bond over the fact that they’re both most likely underprivileged individuals who have almost nothing to lose if they rob a white man.

Likewise, while presenting a story full of sexual energy the issue regarding the concept of fidelity and loyalty also emerges. The characters of the story seem to struggle between the fidelity and sexual
This comical situation demolishes the morals that women claimed to have in their relationships and expressed that as shallow, clueless, and untrue to their word. In addition, making the girls so stuck on the name of a person highlighted the illogical impression that religious purposes were the only reason women chose to marry a certain man and depicted it as rather foolish. Sarcasm is the primary technique used here as Wilde jokes on the “morals” of women during that period. Once again, Wilde doesn’t provide any solution to his opinion on women or the standards of religious purposes. Instead, he exposes the flaws and leaves the audience to question the
The id seeks instant pleasure through sexual and aggressive behaviors, paying no heed to societal or moral requirements. Claudius’s id is the driving reason behind his murder of the king and seducement of the queen, as both were impulsive acts that are forbidden by society that he did only for the sake of enjoying the pleasures of a king. The ghost of the former king explains to Hamlet how “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life / Now wears his crown,” meaning that Claudius had killed the king for the sake of gaining his crown (I.V. 38-39). This behavior arose from Claudius’s id because it the aggressive behavior of murdering his brother that allowed him to receive the immediate pleasure of access to his deceased brother’s wife, and in turn, kingship.
