Queer And The Term Queer

- In a structured society, as one we’ve continued to create today, has raised concerns over the way society uses the term queer. Queer was a term used to describe “odd” “peculiar” or “strange” beings or things alike, but over the centuries societies began to adapt and incorporate the term into their vocabulary. Many authors such as Natalie Kouri-Towe, Siobhan B. Somerville, and Nikki Sullivan have distinct ways of describing the way the word queer has been shaped over the years and how society has viewed it as a whole....   [tags: Homosexuality, LGBT, Queer theory, Transgender]

The Queer Of Queer And Queer

- Safe. Queer. Spaces. We queer folk have come a long way in terms of rights, equal marriage is sweeping over America, the UK and the rest of the world seems to be catching on. Sadly the same cannot be said for trans equality but it is at least becoming more visible and more discussed in everyday life.  Yep. Progress, sort of.   You see as legislation passes and more and more ‘freedoms’ are afforded to queer minorities its easy to think the battle is over and the war has been won.  Not so.

The Queer Theory

- Queer, a word first used by the Scottish in 1508 to mean strange, peculiar, or eccentric, has evolved into a critical theory signifying resistance to the traditional views on gender and sexuality since the early 1990s. An Italian author and professor, Teresa de Lauretis coined the term “Queer Theory” during a conference on conjecturing gay and lesbian sexualities held at the University of California. Heavily influenced by deconstruction, post-structuralism, and feminism, queer theory challenges the practice of assigning people to different categories based on a person’s description....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

The Ecological Constructions of Queer

- Queer ecology is a bridge between ecological criticism and queer theory. The word ecology is derived from the Greek word oikos, which means ‘home’ or ‘surroundings’ and summed as the study of organisms relationship to each other and to their physical, environmental surroundings. The word queer is derived from the German word quer, which means ‘transverse’, ‘oblique’, ‘sideways’, or more understandably “a moment of unfamiliarity” or not at home. These two words based on those definitions seem like they would seldom correlate....   [tags: Sexual Misconduct, Value Systems]

Social Policies Of The Canadian Queer

- MacDougall (1998) states that society loses its rationality while dealing homosexuality (as cited in Knegt, 2011).

The Fight For Queer Rights

- Today, especially with the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality, it is easy to believe that the fight for queer rights is something of the past, something that America as a whole moved beyond because we have achieved these rights. For example, the conclusion to Stonewall Uprising creates a sort of historical separation that allows anyone and everyone to believe that the United States and all the people within it have moved past homophobia, transphobia, and queerphobia. However, this is absolutely not a reality for many queer and trans people today, especially poor and/or incarcerated queer and trans people of color....   [tags: LGBT, Homosexuality, Transgender, Pride parade]

- In the Christian tradition, Satan is commonly accepted as a hideous and monstrous being in direct contrast to God’s graceful mercy, often a shadowy figure with little depth. Yet there exists another very gothic view of this figure, as demonstrated by Milton in Paradise Lost, of a long suffering villain who appears more tragic artist than ultimate deceiver. The Monk, by Matthew Lewis, makes use of more tragic and mythical elements to make something altogether different, a Dionysian figure.

My Post Secondary Education At Algonquin College And Then Furthered At The University Of Ottawa

- Prior to my post-secondary education I was not familiar with feminism or feminist studies. In my studies at Algonquin College and then furthered at the University of Ottawa, I was introduced to both of these concepts. I am in my last semester of my bachelors degree at the University of Ottawa in the Joint Honours of Criminology and Women 's Studies. Throughout this degree I have had the opportunity to develop an intersectional understanding of feminism through a number of courses: Indigenous Feminisms and Aboriginal Women (FEM 3108), Diversities of Women: Gender, Race, Class and (Dis)abilit (FEM 2107), Class, Work, Gender and (Re)production (FEM 2111)....   [tags: Feminism, Feminist theory, Gender studies]

Dykes Organize: The Founding of the Lesbian Avengers

- Dykes Organize: The Founding of the Lesbian Avengers The Stonewall riots opened the doors to the rise and fall of numerous different homosexual actions groups. The differences in the groups were like night and day and the theories behind them changed with the times. In the 1990’s a group made its debut by coming out strong and forceful. Their handbook stated, “We need you. Because we are not waiting for the rapture. We are the apocalypse.” This became part of a dyke manifesto. A manifesto that changed lesbian views, a manifesto that brought with it a ‘fierce lesbian movement’, it brought confrontation to lesbian politics....   [tags: Essays Paper]

Relationship Between Harley Quin And Poison Ivy

- When examining the many complicated relationships between the characters in the multiple batman universes, the relationship between Harley Quin and Poison Ivy in “Batman: The Animated Series,” specifically in the episode titled “Harley and Ivy,” is the one I found most fascinating. The personal backstories that they both have as individuals is already fascinating, but as their stories intertwine, things get even more intriguing.

Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's Tendencies: Queerness and Oppression

- Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's Tendencies: Queerness and Oppression Over the last two decades or so, the idea of queerness is one that has been utilized and considered by individuals and communities of marginalized sexualities and genders. The concept is one that has attempted to broaden and deconstruct traditional notions of gender and sexuality in order to include all of their incarnations as valid experiences and identities. Queerness endeavors to include all of those who feel they are a part of it yet, seemingly, not everyone can be queer without changing the very nature of queerness....   [tags: Sedgwick Tendencies Sexuality Essays]

The Progression Of Social Movements

- The Progression of Social Movements We must not forget the foundation that the gay rights movement was built on in the victory of the legalization of same-sex marriage and we must continue to fight for rights of all marginalized groups. On June 26th, 2015 the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that same-sex marriage would be legalized in all fifty states in the United States of America. This was accepted as a monumental milestone on the road to equality for the queer community, and while Timothy Stewart-Winter wouldn’t disagree, he does raise the concern that this may become the “swan song”-the swan song is defined as a person’s final public performance or professional activity before...   [tags: Homosexuality, LGBT, Gay, Heterosexism]

A world that did not approve of the types of relationships you had or desired; a world that only used you for the punchline of a joke or for taboo sex appeal; a world that would rather pretend that you do not exist. For members of the LGBT community, this is their reality. Television shows, movies, music, advertisements — all of these mediums are most assuredly intended for a heterosexual audience.

The author Michael Warner talks extensively about sexual shame and uses it as his framework to analyze those who want to fit into society, those who are less sexual and especially those who “apologize” for the push to legalize gay marriage.

Gender And Sexuality : Sociological Research

- Gender and Sexuality in Sociological Research Gender and sexuality have been contested across fields for a long time now. Sociology has focused on gender and space, but not in conjunction, especially related to queer students. In addition to this, there is no generally accepted definition of queer, and it varies both between the disciplines as well as within them. However, it troubles “essentialist notions” of identity in lieu of a spectrum (Levy & Johnson, 2012). For the purpose of our paper, we chose to group together categories of sexual identity and gender identity into the all encompassing category of ‘queer.’ Anyone who identified as strictly both cisgender and heterosexual was placed...   [tags: Sociology, Homosexuality, LGBT, Gay]
