Transgender Conformity - ... LGBTI people and their families were increasingly targeted and became the victims of physical harm and discrimination when the Proposition 8 bill was launched (Colombo, p. 85). The ignorance taught in schools that later leaks into laws damage the equality that American society stands by. Instead, ignorance maintains separation and lowers our intelligence. Another part of society that is part of human nature is the need to categorize others to make sense of and interpret others.

“Transsexual and Transgender Policies in Sport”, - According to Heather Skyes in her article “Transsexual and Transgender Policies in Sport”, the vast variety of genders that make up our society today including transsexuals and transgender are still not accepted into the world of sports due to anxieties from large sporting organizations. In our culture, there is a ‘binary structure’ which separates male from female. When a person is transsexual or transgender, the binary structure becomes challenged. There are so many exceptions to the binary structure, that it becomes nearly impossible to universalize “gender inclusive policies”....   [tags: Article Analysis, argumentative, persuasive] 938 words

The World of Transgender, Homosexual, and Intersex Individuals - Sex and gender make up one of the most basic functions in our society. Gender helps delineate tasks and how we refer to people, and is reinforced for us throughout our lives (Lorber 2006). Gender interacts with sex in varying ways (Disch 2006). Those who are not strictly heterosexual male or female are not readily accepted and face adversity as they bend gender and defy sex. It has long been debated whether there is a difference between sex and gender, and if so, what that difference is. In recent years it has been suggested that sex is a purely biological term, and gender is socially constructed, or defined and enforced by society....   [tags: Gender Studies, argumentative, persuasive]

Oppression and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Persons - ... Gay and Lesbian research is inquiry that focuses on the lives, experiences, and meanings of those who are socially identified as lesbians; this identity label is temporal, culturally determined, and socially constructed.

Working for the future National Museum of American LGBT History & Culture - Historically, museums and galleries have excluded too many people. I want to eradicate the pervasive assumption that “certain people just don’t visit museums.” In a modern era of public discourse characterized by instantaneous updating and dynamic participation, a savvy public shares knowledge and relays experience with the click of a mouse. The Internet, digital media, video games, and social networking offer new approaches to learning and understanding others. Regrettably, many museums – the giants of knowledge – have fallen behind in regard to inclusiveness, technological innovation, and representation of diverse experiences....   [tags: Career Goals] 852 words
