We sometimes find ourself contemplating about who we are and what do we want in our life. As a gay man I have found myself stuck in many places, this is totally normal. We all try to find that perfect life but sometimes it involves barriers. Being wrong and owning up to what you want in life makes the ride easier. Thus being said, I would like to introduce myself with memories that shaped who I am and the struggles that I’ve achieved.
Yet, I personally do not agree with the claim. In fact, homosexuality, as well as same sex couples, have been existing all along, and their existence did not make obvious changes in birth rate in general. Therefore, simple legalizing the homosexuals’ rights and recognizing their marriage shall not lead to a sudden drop in birth rate. Instead, the legalization may even benefit our society by
Over the years, the advertising industry has consistently been a target of criticism. One criticism especially prevalent among activists and audience members alike involves advertising 's ability to offend (Fam et al, 2004).

Love prevails, but before that, ignorance had taken over. Homophobes continue to use excuses such as “I can’t accept homosexuality because of my religion.” and “God hates fags.”. Some people believe it is a choice, and that you can get rid of the homosexual feelings with certain methods. The bulk of this poster will focus on the horrors of “Gay Conversion Therapy.”, a way that homosexuals were forced to try to become straight. Defining “gay” and “lesbian” Believe it or not, these words do not mean “bad”.
Islamophobia is a hatred and fear toward Islam and Muslims that results in discrimination creating a distorted understanding of Islam and Muslims. In the western countries such as the United States, France and the United Kingdom Islamophobia is one of the contemporary manifestations of the problem of prejudice and racism that has afflicted the nation since its earliest days. Muslims have been involved in historical American movements combatting prejudice, but only after the 9/11 terror attacks have they become a primary focus for purveyors of hate. Acts of terrorism, such as the September 11 attack (2001), Paris, the Charlie Hebdo attack in January of 2015, and a Mosque bombing in Yemen that killed 130 in March of 2015, have caused such fear

“It takes no compromise to give people their rights...it takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no political deal to give people freedom. It takes no survey to remove repression.” This was spoken by Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person elected to office in California in 1977. Society has shifted its eyes to look at issues within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community (LGBTQ community) more often than in 1977, but it has not always been in a good light. While the American public begins to voice opinions in support of the LGBTQ Community, many states’ legislations display the opposite.
When it was first performed in front of King Louis XIV, critics thought that it was offensive towards the Catholic Church and they banned any future performances until 1669. Tartuffe shows how sometimes individuals do not listen to their moral sense because of the strong impact religion has. It also shows how not listening to one’s moral sense can consequently result in a complete blindness from the truth. Throughout the entire play, the idea of passion versus reason is shown. In reality we are persuaded by reason, but we are moved by emotion.
Hence, expressing her sexual orientation was not seen as an option. The society we live in now seemed like the world that I was used to when I was growing up, only adhering to a certain idea. In this case, individuals having to abide to the rule of only having a certain sexual preference that was out of their control. As I see myself as deeply rooted with my religion, I obligatory and voluntarily object to homosexual practices, but I am still interested in the social and personal experiences of homosexual individuals. Reason being that I believe that people should be treated equally, despite the different values or morals they stand by.
They are still made of the same flesh and bones as you and I are. Being gay is harder than being heterosexual because some people have been very close-minded about gays. It is only now that some people are slowly accepting the fact that some people are gay.
