If a person has not had to face oppression, understanding how to relate to another person can be challenging. A person’s positions will impact his or her interests toward resolving issues. The expectations about others will affect everyday relationships. We all make mistakes, but minimizing conclusions and stereotypes will help to gain the trust of the other person.

Some parents of children that are different in sexuality often discriminate them also. They cope with it by talking about it to other same-sex individuals. Some homos keep it to themselves, so no one will know their real sexuality. Often times, homosexuals will date someone of the opposite sex, so they can hide their true selves. Homos tend to cope with discrimination by not showing up to school.
The accepted norm in society is that a healthy and efficient relationship should consist of two individuals. People typically strive to embrace monogamy because the idea of their spouse being intimate with another person evokes jealous emotions. Although they might want to engage in non-monogamous relations, their jealousy over their spouse's participation will outweigh their desire to do so. According to Monogamy's Law, one common reason people might choose monogamy is because although they might prefer non-exclusive commitment for themselves and exclusive commit... ... middle of paper ... ...and diverse and therefore must be approached with a non-biased attitude. Arguably the most contributing factor to this negative societal response is the association of polyamory and homosexuality by monogamist idealists.
People will tend to agree openly but privately be thinking and knowing it is wrong. People feel they need to socially conform to have a sense of belonging or connectedness, fit in, have a positive social identity, or to simply adapt to their situation and surroundings at the time. I feel it is rare to find those who exude confidence (not to be confused with arrogance), that are comfortable in their own skin, and speak their mind with the facts/truth and break the norms. It might be hard at first to take this approach, but in my experience, those individuals are also the ones that are highly respected. On the other hand, those who go against what society claims is right or wrong may be seen as deviants.
Other times groups of friends can have certain activities and habits they do together. If you find that hanging out with people who tend to do things you wouldn't normally do and you feel unaccepted unless you follow through, "get out" so you don't fall into the pressure to "fit in" What can I do about it and who can I turn to for support? You could first try take responsibility for yourself and do what you feel is best for you, try letting this group know you are fun to be with even if you don't participate in all the same activities as them. It's ok to be an individual. Things to do to manage peer pressure: • just say "no" • stick with what you believe is right
People will interact in the same way as the other person. There has been a conclusion based on this theory that “nonverbal cues play a key role in how people adapt to others” (p. 190). If a person is communicating with their friend, who has their arms crossed, than this person might find that they are crossing their arms as well. These types of actions are all conclusions to this theory. People, based on their interactions with others, usually tend to develop similar communication patterns and find themselves mirroring the patterns of the other.

Cultural and ethical relativism can often be thought to share the exact same beliefs and be one and the same, but they actually have differences. As taught in lecture, Cultural relativism is when people try and understand and become involved with other cultures that are not their own and do not use their own cultures as the norm. People are free to still have their own opinions that come from their own culture, but they attempt to better relate to those of other cultures and figure out the “why” behind the rituals, beliefs, and values of others. They believe that the ways people behave and perceive others is relative to their culture and cannot be understood without taking their culture into account. Cultural relativism is against ethnocentrism
He used being in an open relationship, which we both agreed to partake in, against me in order to make me look bad. I believe that if we had stayed in a monogamous relationship then he would not have been as hurt, and he would not felt the desire to see me hurt in return. Even though open relationships may start off innocent, at least one person ends up being hurt, as it is difficult to balance and develop the feelings and routines most people look for in a relationship.
Homosexual people and couples are treated as inferior to that of heterosexuals. The values that homosexual couples exhibit in their daily lives are often indistinguishable from those of their straight neighbors. They're loyal to their mates, and are devoted partners. Many of the reasons offered for opposing homosexual marriage are based on the assumption that homosexuals have a choice in which they can feel attracted to, and the reality is quite different. Many people actually believe that homosexuals could simply choose to be heterosexual if they wished.
