Many people do not think of theses injustices happening due largely to intimidation, but unfortunately they are. Due to this, battered women and other victims of intimidation should not be subject to the same legal system that failed them once or more before. The intimidation felt in the courtroom by those who are viewed as powerless and inferior causes a vicious cycle of intimidation in the one place when the people coming from intimidation should feel protected and secure. The same feeling is felt by battered women. The male is favored over the female, and there is no justice, which is the exact opposite of the intention of the court system.
Not only is the media coverage in conflict with O’Flaherty’s personal interests, it also shines an unnecessary spotlight on other members of the LGBT community that would prefer not to be defined by their sexuality. True equality for the LGBT community will not be achieved until they are able to go about their lives the same way heterosexual people can. Calling attention to their sexuality, in a positive manner or not, prevents a normal livelihood for the nine million Americans who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or gay. The best way to support this community would be to give them the same treatment that we would anyone else, without bias or judgement based on their sexual
What is companionship? Many would say that these are just two things that go hand in hand in what many would consider marriage, but according to Sprigg, “It’s still not sufficient to define marriage”(Sprigg P.7). In addition, He uses this to support his protest that homosexual relationships shouldn’t be given the legal status of marriage. To some this is all simply a man answering questions while declaring his standpoint on the topic, but to me it’s much more. As a member-for lack or a better word- of the LGBT community it honestly breaks my heart to see that someone could be so determined that marriage defies same-sex relationships as well as have the audacity to even claim said unions have any ‘consequences’ at all, and negative at that.
The people around him did not accept Brandon after his gender change, but he did his best to handle the situation by trying to fit in the society. He faces rejection and violence, but that does not make him change his decision to change from female to male (Siegel, 2003). If Brandon were to come to me for support, I would have supported him because the transgender community is now common in the world today. I know many people might not agree with my decision to support Brandon, but sexual change is an individual’s decision; therefore, he/she should not be criticized or hurt in the process. In conclusion, the film Boys Don’t Cry represents the life of a transsexual youth who was raped and murdered because of his sexuality.
These norms, like relationships are only supposed to be between two heterosexual people is defying the freedom of choice, which is extremely emphasize by Americans. However, by not supporting Polyamory they are going against their own words. Polyamory is a controversial topic that has been judged and critic by many, and has caused Polyamorist to be discriminated against, like not being hired at a job, or simply being shunned by their family and friends because of their lifestyle. Do to these discriminations many polyamorist live in secret, but the ones that are not scared to be open about their practice of polyamory are fighting for their acceptance. Now that gay marriage has been approve, polyamorist are awaiting for their lifestyle to be view as normal, and that someday plural marriage would be legalized, so they can practice their lifestyle liberally.
This is not something that should separate people from one another. That homeless person is not much different than the person that walks into the office building every day, however, they are still treated differently. The gay couple is also not much different than the straight couple, but they are still treated differently. Is all of this hate due to the way humans are raised, or is it due to the voices that are in the media? Hate towards other types of people is the thing that is prohibiting peace, it is something that needs to be put to rest.
Many may question the idea that a law is unjust if it is inflicted on a mass population who had no part in enacting and devising the law. In the United States, citizens would consider that predicament as a violation of democracy. However, many minorities, particular black American were inflicted by laws that were passed without a fair consensus due to simulations that limited their rights as American citizens. As a result, many black Americans risk their lives fighting for justice for the black community. Although it is one’s moral obligation to abide by the laws for the sake of humanity and harmony amongst the nation, it is unconstitutional to not hold all accountable to the same standards of this nation’s constitution.
Other opponents say that some people consider it popular to be unique in a specific way, and are just setting up and joining these groups as a way of showing how cool they are. Yet, gay people do not follow this concept. Homosexuals challenge the mainstream idea that relationships should be between a man and a woman. Their decision to be open about their non-conformist ways has led to some people claiming that their views disagree with their religion or culture, which means that it isn’t cool to be different. Being cool isn’t a factor in people’s decision to join a non-conformist group.
Any there is no nationwide stand for them, unlike the civil rights movement. There is religious tolerance in America, but the intolerance is a major problem because the propagated diversity of her inhabitants. The pilgrims came to America to practice their religion without being prosecuted . Ostracizing men, women, and children based on their and their orientation and beliefs or their lack of is disrespecting Martin Luther King Jr’s dream of equality and our founding fathers. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted equality for all not just black americans.
The world around us lacks a basic comprehension of human rights, and among those issues is of rights towards the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and others (LGBTQ+) community. Homophobia is immoral, and putting an end to it would eminently improve the state of humanity, as acceptance is key in viewing a brighter future where we can be who we are and love who we want to without fear of consequences or hate. A wide range of issues, big to small, need to be acknowledged and attended to in order to move forwards in creating a hate-free environment for people of all sexualities and genders to feel a part of. To begin, many LGBTQ+ students are deprived of sexual education that includes homosexuality in the curriculum, as well as feeling safe at school. By providing more knowledge towards having safe intercourse to LGBTQ+ students, it may benefit
We also found the lack of public outcry equally puzzling. Only now is there some opposition to this legislation being heard. Yet this must be the worst interference of family affairs ever legislated in a democracy. It is quite outrageous that any government would violate the privacy of domestic families in this manner. Just as disturbing is the readiness by which society has accepted the validity of homosexual marriage.
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” By Emma Lazarus (1883). No undocumented person should be treated as a criminal. Undocumented immigrants arise in the United States due to the lack of opportunities in their homeland, and they know America is a nation where a dream can become real. Those individuals willingly perform jobs that nearly all Americans refuse to do; they are reliable people, pay taxes, and help America’s economy. Yet, should undocumented immigrants be granted a path to citizenship?
