They should be able to have a life without fear. Living in fear is not living at all that’s why some gay people prefer not to come out from the closet. What do they mean by coming out from the closet? Gay people normally come out because they do not want to hide their sexual orientation anymore. They want to be honest to those people they care and trust about their sexual orientation, about who they are.
Consider the following phrases: homosexual community, homosexual activist, homosexual marriage. Substitute the word “gay” in any of those cases, and the terms suddenly become far less loaded, so that the ring of disapproval and judgment evaporates. Some gay rights advocates have declared the term off limits. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance against slander, or Glad, has put “homosexual” on its list of offensive terms and in 2006 persuaded The Associated Press, whose stylebook is the widely used by many news organizations, to restrict use of the word. Miss Suhashini a, lecturer of Phycology Department at UTAR who was currently doing research about LGBT has looked at the way the term is used by those who try to portray gays and lesbians as deviant.
“Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.” This was said by the famous Rosa Parks in 1957. Racism should have ended long ago but there are still many cases going on around the world today. To make things worse, racism isn’t the only type of discrimination happening. The three most common types of discrimination faced in our generation are racism, religion discrimination, and homophobia.
Many of them are based on the segregation of whites and blacks in the south during the Great Depression era. Aside from the main racial prejudice, there are two other types of prejudice, one being social class and the other gender. Prejudice is a frequent problem in the novel that really defines the plot and characters. The first and most prominent type of prejudice is racial prejudice. This prejudice is exemplified through white and black people.
Discrimination, however, takes place the moment a person acts of prejudice. Racism is the patterns of discrimination that are accepted widespread as “normal” throughout an entire culture. To be racist, there are two traits that are needed: privilege, an overall advantage, and power. Two things that are not commonly found in the black community. Nevertheless, these two traits are somethings that are mainly common in the white race.
Racism plays a large role in dividing entire groups of people and most of the time, the racism comes from stereotypes and assumptions made of each other. One example of insensitivity and divisiveness when maintaining stereotypes is when someone starts asking questions about the said stereotype to another who is affected by it. Such as if a white man goes up to an Asian girl to get help with math because ‘all asians are good at math’. These kind of stereotypes are very insensitive towards others. An example of racism that proves that society is oblivious to how people of ‘other’ backgrounds are treated is the pay and job gap.
This statement holds truth, but it is only the beginning of addressing the problem. Society has deemed it necessary to discriminate against this community, instead of accepting them, and treating them how they should be treated; like normal people, since that is what they are, of course. unjust way the LGBTQ+ community
I believe everybody should have the right to love anyone, no matter what who, as they can’t change the way they love. “And I can’t change/Even if I tried/Even if I wanted to”, this quote makes me upset that people want to change the way they are, more specifically their sexual orientation. This is because society still has control over people’s opinions, dictating what words we use in our daily vocabulary. Today’s generation frequently uses the slang term ‘gay’ as a casual insult to someone or something, treating it as though it is bad to be homosexual. The song communicates this in the quote, “’Man that’s gay’ gets dropped on the daily” showing listeners that the term is constantly being used, causing a harmful effect on those who are ‘gay’.
In other words, racism is just part of human nature... The best evidence for this assertion is the fact that racism has not always existed. Racism is a particular form of oppression. (Selfa, Slavery and the origins of racism) It’s still going to continue. Consequently, our nation will have to take control of this issue from concerned children to feared adults.
When prejudice is acted upon, then that becomes discrimination. Discrimination is an actually an action directed towards a group of people who is disliked. Racism does not come into play until a society of people begins to believe that it is socially acceptable to discriminate against a group of people because the culture has taught them to believe that one “race” of people is better than another “race”. Racism is a cultural phenomenon that creates inequality among
