Knowledge on Homosexuality and Sexual Orientation It is very evident that one of our societies issue is homosexuality. Nevertheless, only few are aware and deeply knowledgeable of this concern. There has been a growth in the population of the LGBTQ community, specifically, lesbians and gays. Homosexuality is a branch from heterosexuality. According to the definition of Encyclopædia Britannica of homosexuality, it is a sexual attraction to one’s own gender.
Homosexuality has been more accepted in our society during the past years, (even though we still have a lot of work to do) but now, bisexual people are the one that have to face many of the prejudices the gay community faced before. The same (stupid) things that had been said to homosexuals: that they were disgusting, unnatural, having sex with everyone or confused about their sexuality, are now what bisexuals are hearing about them. And one of the craziest part of it is that many gays are repeating this against people
The Brahman lies at the root of all who show devotion to other gods. Even though they’re so many gods, individuals usually have a stronger connection to a particular god of their choosing, and not to every single god. Each Hindus religious path is a little bit different. I don’t think one could classify Hinduism in a way that would universalize whether it is a polytheistic or monotheistic religion. All gods in this religion are smaller deities to the greater Brahman, making this monotheistic, but then it is also polytheistic because there is truly the supreme belief in one major God.
The terms Gay, Lesbian, and Homosexuality refer to sexual and romantic attraction between individuals of the same sex. A homosexual may or may not identify themselves as gay or lesbian. Homosexuality, as an identifier, is usually contrasted with heterosexuality and bisexuality. The term gay is used predominantly to refer to self-identified homosexuals of either sex.

Homosexuality can be defined as a sexual orientation and a sense of personal and social identity with or without alternative life style. For some western countries homosexual issues are the norms and are accepted in their lives but it is different with countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and others. The majority of them are from among those who are Muslims.

Heteronormativity is defined as a social doctrine of standards that basically force us to act according to the sex (and thus heteronormative gender associated with that sex) that we are born with ;for instance as devising relationships with the opposite sex, getting married and later giving birth to children. The author also outlines the key challenges of the social norms that preserve protection against the discrimination of non-heteronormative individuals in post-apartheid South Africa (Steyn and van Zyl 2009:3). There is so many concerns involving heteronormativity, to such an extent that it affects heterosexuals as well. Regardless of the advances, the question is whether or not there will ever be equality for same-sex couples with heterosexual ones. Thus these problems are caused by heteronormativity, in which the concepts is still applicable in the twenty first century.
Pansexuality, also known as omnisexuality, does not limit attraction to sexual or physical aspects, often than not, a pansexual also becomes a panromantic, a person who may have spiritual or romantic attraction to anyone from the gender spectrum (“What is Pansexual,” 2010).
