Being Gay: Coming Out in the 21st Century

...Being Gay: Coming Out In The 21st Century People come from shame to pride, which is a long process. In the 1940’s the military says that you are not criminals, you are just ill. As the wars ended, and they were getting rid of military men, they started weeding out the gays. Their rights were taken away, and they were not allowed back into the military. No one ever spoke the words “gay” or “lesbian”. In 1969 stonewall took place and police showed up at the bars where the gays hung out. Typically no one fought back, however, this time they did. They say stonewall was their coming out. Activism never stopped from that point on. In 1973 the American Psychiatry removed homosexuality as a mental disorder. Then 1980 came and AIDS began spreading, and at that time there was 1.5 million people that had been diagnosed. In 1990 gay parades were going on, celebrities began coming out to the public. Even though today homosexuals are more accepted, there are still many homophobes and bigotry. Some say they get rocks thrown at them and get called names such as “fag”. Rev. Dr. Penny Nixon says that she won’t hold her girlfriends hand in public for fear that she will get beat up. There are some people who will even kill gays/lesbians when they see them. Matthew Shepherd was tied to a fence and beaten and left to die because he was gay. Research now shows that being homosexual is not an illness, not a choice, and no abnormal. Early on, “gay” meant happy, and now it is used......

...Zanowicz 11/7/12 Freedom Gay marriage should be legalized because it is our right to freedom and freedom of choice. Our civil rights and the Constitution give us many liberties. One of our civil liberties is the pursuit of happiness, which homosexual people are not allowed to chase. They cannot be married to the person they love and it violates their freedoms. In Alaska, Nevada, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas, and Alabama, not only is gay marriage banned, but so are civil partnerships. Others might ask why gay marriage should be legalized, but my question is, why should other people be able to choose who marries whom. If a man and a woman get married, no one seems to care. They are two people who feel affection for one another and those two people want to start a family. If we change the scenario a little bit and a man and a man, or a woman and a woman, try to get married, it causes uproar. They are not allowed to be married or raise a family together.  Imagine waking up one day to a world that was completely opposite from the world we went to sleep in, meaning gay people are now straight and all straight people are now gay. Do you think the newly straight people would fight for the newly homosexual people’s rights? America is the land of the free, but we are not free to marry whomever we would like. After everything......

Gay Marriages

...Gay Marriages Priscilla Reyes Sociology 120: Introduction to Ethics & Sociology Kathleen Miller March 10, 2013 Gay marriages, I don’t believe in gay marriages only in marriages between a man and woman. I know that a lot of gays or lesbians are trying to get the Supreme Court to approve same sex marriage. In California, the Supreme Court is trying to get same sex marriages ban nationwide. The gay and lesbian are using the law to have the same sex marriages pass and there have been about 3 states like Maine, Maryland, and Washington that have passed the same sex marriage. In other states like Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Rhode Island, Minnesota, and New Jersey are against the same sex marriage. I don’t think that it should change what marriage is referring to between two men or two women; it is based on a man and woman marrying in holy matrimony. This is stated in the Bible and thru the standard government law and constitution. The government shouldn’t change the law of the constitution or the bill of rights because of same sex marriages. The gays and lesbians want the same rights as a man and a woman do when they get married, for instance if the significant other happens to pass away the significant other would inherited what their significant other left behind. It is not the same when a man inherited his wife life insurance policy or the wife inherits her husband’s life insurance. Marriage should only be between a man and a woman not two men or two women getting...

Think of the Economy as Being More Like a Cat Than a Washing Machine

...Rule 1: Think of the economy as being more like a cat than a washing machine. We are victims of the post-Enlightenment view that the world functions like a sophisticated machine, to be understood like a textbook engineering problem and run by wonks. In other words, like a home appliance, not like the human body. If this were so, our institutions would have no self-healing properties and would need someone to run and micromanage them, to protect their safety, because they cannot survive on their own. By contrast, natural or organic systems are antifragile: They need some dose of disorder in order to develop. Deprive your bones of stress and they become brittle. This denial of the antifragility of living or complex systems is the costliest mistake that we have made in modern times. Stifling natural fluctuations masks real problems, causing the explosions to be both delayed and more intense when they do take place. As with the flammable material accumulating on the forest floor in the absence of forest fires, problems hide in the absence of stressors, and the resulting cumulative harm can take on tragic proportions. And yet our economic policy makers have often aimed for maximum stability, even for eradicating the business cycle. "No more boom and bust," as voiced by the U.K. Labor leader Gordon Brown, was the policy pursued by Alan Greenspan in order to "smooth" things out, thus micromanaging us into the current chaos. Mr. Greenspan kept trying to iron out economic......

...'That the Australian Government legalise gay marriage in all states of Australia.' Which couple do you think is happier? Which couple do you think has the right to the security of marriage? Today I want to explain the very prevalent issue of gay marriage and what it means to gay couples, couples like the one in the photo. So what is gay marriage? What is the issue that people have been so strongly for and against? In Australian it is the federal legislation of same sex marriage. Through the alteration of the marriage act to include the marriage of same sex couples. In doing so affording the same rights to gay couples as straight couples. The main grounds people provide to why we shouldn’t allow gay marriage is that marriage is a community and religious value that only a man and a woman have the right to. In our society we also believe in the power of racial, social and religious equality so why do we continue to discriminate against gays and they’re right to marriage. I agree with the people that say marriage is a community value, Marriage holds together society and is at the core of the Australian family, but were I disagree is on the point that it should only be between a man and a woman. Why should such a valued and cherished thing like marriage be deprived to people simply because of there sexuality? The answer to that is it shouldn’t be, it shouldn’t be because the love between a woman and a man and two men or women is the same, because love is unconditional and...

Gay Marriage

...Gay Marriage Gay marriage is a very controversial issue, though I know where I stand having a gay sibling , I fully support two people of the same sex being able to get married. Through my personal experiences and research, I can support my views on this subject. Many people are against gay marriage because they think that being homosexual is wrong, evil or it’s a sin. Others believe that accepting gay couples getting married would be a threat to the society’s values and weaken what marriage is defined as. Many years ago, African Americans, for example, did not have the same equality like white people did I think gay marriage has a similar issue. We are all humans and we all should have the same equality and right no matter if we are gay, straight,white,black,Latin, Asian or any other race,Therfore gay marriage should be legal. Many young children in America are killing themselves for being victim of abuse,bulling or discrimination in school from other kids that believe that being gay is wrong . Bullying is an intentional aggressive behavior that is often applied to people that have or express a different behavior or preferences that are not consider “normal” or average behavior than most of the people. They may be bullied for different reasons, by the way they dress, how they speak, or even because of the race they are.There are many types of bulling physical bullying (punching or hitting). Verbal bullying is a very common bullying,......

Being Gay in Different Cultures

...Gregory Howard Different Cultures Views on Being Gay When I was younger I was always taught that being homosexual was wrong. Everyone around me told me that they were horrible people that were going to go to hell for their sins. I believed what I was told and for a time I had hate in my heart. I judged these people without even getting to know them. I didn’t give them a chance. As years passed, I grew up and formed opinions of my own about homosexuals. I came to realize that the hate I was taught all those years was wrong. I felt ashamed of treating people badly for something I now know isn’t even their choice. I am now accepting of homosexuals and their way of life. I don’t cast judgment upon them and I believe they should be treated the same as any other person. With my eyes open I now wondered what it was like for people who are gay in different cultures. I know how homosexuals are treated in America. For the most part we as a culture accept them. There will always be ignorant people no matter where you go. But for the mostly America as whole is becoming more and more accepting. In some states gay marriage is even legal. I can only imagine, looking at how far our acceptance has come, one day people will think it’s crazy that gay marriage was once ever illegal anywhere in our country. But what is it like for people who are gay that live in different parts of the world? Is it the same for them as it is in America? I assume unfortunately there is hate anywhere you......

...didn’t give these inside information about what’s happening in the company to anyone expect one employee who’s name was Charles Embry. This shows that all the other employees of the PG&E were on the first stage of moral development stages of Kohlberg i.e. punishment if one gets caught for the crime. A man named Charles Embry approached Erin and gave her the important documents which he have saved for long time though he was requested by PG&E to destroy them. He was willing to go against his manager because he had saw his cousin die in front of him because of the nose bleeding and kidney tumor as he use to clean cooling towers of the PG&E company. The company also broke the utilitarian principle, rights principle and virtue principle by being selfish and not caring about the community where its factories were located and even the employees. They took away smiles from a lot of families and because of their selfishness a lot of families lost there loved ones. The company paid huge amount for the settlement instead they could just spend much more less money than they actually paid and found an alternative rather than using chromium. This case is a perfect example of that if the companies heads are acting in an unethical manner so will the employees act in that way because usually it is difficult to go against your company. Through this case we can learn a lot that if in future we are working in a company in which unethical practices are happening then we should take action......

It gives people the right to pick their sexual orientation. It has been discussed time and again on the Indian television.

Gay Marriage

...Gay marriage will strengthen family values by allowing millions of gay people the opportunity to reinforce their bonds in the same way that heterosexuals do. Same sex couples that get married are more likely to buy homes, which strengthens the economy. Same sex couples that buy homes are more likely to stay in them longer than people who rent. They're more likely to spend money on improvements. They would also be more likely to adopt one or more of the huge number of unwanted children brought into the world by straight people, for various reasons that children ended up in foster care. Married gay people would create strong positive role models for the next generations of gay children. The outlook of same sex marriage in society, and the proof being demonstrated, that the world will continue to spin on its axis. Even if gay people get married. It would help the conservative and religious right wing to see that gay people are just like everybody else, which would hopefully spare their children who happen to be gay the pain of their parents, assuming that being gay is a sin or mental illness. Pros of Same Sex Married 1. If the newlywed resides in the United States then will get to experience the advantages, which the government offers to married couples.

Gay Linggo

...WHAT IS GAY LINGO or Swardspeak (also known as "Bekimon" and "gay lingo") is an argot or cant slang derived from Taglish (Tagalog-English code-switching) and used by a number of homosexuals in the Philippines Sward speak uses elements from Tagalog, English, Spanish, and some from Japanese, as well as celebrities' names and trademark brands, giving them new meanings in different contexts. It is largely localized within gay communities, making use of words derived from the local languages or dialects, including Cebuano, Hiligaynon, Waray, and Bicolano The term beki mon (beki is a colloquial word for "gay") took off from the growing popularity of the jejemon subculture, which refers to those who deliberately exaggerate ordinary words by adding or subtracting letters, or by using a mixture of upper-case and lower-case letters, in written communication. Consciously or unconsciously, even straights or heterosexuals have peppered their vocabulary with words traceable to gay speak. Mention the word anech (from “ano” or “what” in English with anesh, anik, anikla as varieties) to anyone in the metropolitan areaand in all likelihood, the person being spoken to will reply as casually. There are also thefamiliar words chika, chuva, and charot. Abstract – The language of gays known as gay speak has now earned respect from the community and observably been infused in the mainstream language of the society. Language is evolving and with its changing nature, existing language needs to be...

Gay, to Be or Not to Be

...Gay: to be or not to be…. “That’s so gay” is often heard these days among the younger generation and they aren’t saying something is happy or bright looking. The saying is more negative and is intended as disapproval. The word gay came to mind right away when choosing my definition word. I see and hear many people use this word in various ways. When I think of the word gay two definitions come to mind, one being a homosexual and the other being joyful, however there are other ways to describe the word gay. I had a teacher in Junior High with the first name Gay. Of course my classmates thought it was funny and I admit I did too. Who would name their kid a homosexual? That inspired me to look more into the word gay at that time and I found all the other meanings to the word. Knowing all the meanings to gay, has helped me with my job, since the older generation still uses gay as meaning joyful and happy. To this day, my teacher was the only Gay named person I have met. The word "gay" arrived in English during the 12th century from Old French gai, most likely deriving ultimately from a Germanic source. For most of its life in English, the word's primary meaning was "joyful", "carefree", "bright and showy", and the word was very commonly used with this meaning in speech and literature. ( It was apparently not until the 20th century that the word began to be used to mean specifically "homosexual", although it had earlier acquired sexual connotations...

Gay Marriage

...In the United States, there is a lot of controversy over the issue of gay marriage. There are constant discrepancies between adamant believers in gay marriage and the political leaders of our country. The government’s refusal of the right of the marriage of homosexuals should not be tolerated. A large portion of people in America at the moment are utterly and completely against gay marriage, however there are also those who possess a more liberal view on the situation and  feel differently towards the subject of equal treatment for all people. Religious beliefs often play a substantial role in the decision making process in many ways. For instance, Christian politicians are using their religious beliefs to impose their views and ideas upon people of their denomination. Christians believe that gay marriage shouldn’t be allowed because of the Bible entries that suggest that God made man and women for each other and that any other variation of this couple is a sin. Some feel that this country was founded on the beliefs of Christianity and therefore we should respect those ideals of our forefathers but this can no longer be the case. Our society has grown throughout the years and people have become more and more accepting of change. Every person has their own religious freedom to worship which ever God they see fitting and to believe in any cause they choose. There has been separation from church and state for many......

Gay Marriage

...Gay Marriage: What’s the Problem??? “Homosexuality is not normal and should not be established as an acceptable ‘alternative’ lifestyle,’” Blount wrote. “A day is fast approaching when North Carolina will have to deal with the issue of same sex marriage.” This phrase is written across dozens of newspapers, journals, and websites. All you have to do is simply go to yahoo, type in gay marriage in North Carolina and thousands of results come up. Now you may think at first that most of these websites or links may just be talking about the approaching topic, but you would be baffled by what you actually do find. In my case the first time I searched the topic of gay marriage in this state, I was at a loss for words when the first 500 results were all against gay marriage. Such titles as “support traditional marriage” and “” where some of the first I saw. You would have to rummage around through thousands of results before finding one moderate website that could actually tell you what was going on without putting in their own input. Gay marriage, in my opinion should be allowed. There is no strong reason for why homosexuals cannot be married. People should drop all of the political jargon and realize how they would feel if someone told them they could not marry the person they loved just because they were heterosexual. It’s easier to understand once the shoe is one the other foot. One argument heard is that same sex marriages will take away from the......
