DescriptionThe culture of homosexuality and psychology. Research on lecture from general psychology.
Are homosexuals being discriminated against? My answer for that is yes! For decades, we humans have fought for our civil rights. Americans fought for various freedoms of liberty; African Americans fought to be treated as equal to Caucasians; women have fought for the right to be treated as equal to men. Today, the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) Community is fighting for the same rights that heterosexuals enjoy. Racism, prejudice, and profiling fall into the category of hate crimes. There isn’t much difference between homophobia and the aforementioned and it is wrong to discriminate against another person.

According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the word ‘Devil’ is defined as, “4 : a person of notable energy, recklessness, and dashing spirit; also : one who is mischievous” (Devil, n.d.) I believe that one’s sexual orientation is not voluntary or choice based, because, one would never want to choose to be something that brings him or her so much physical and emotional pain.
I was in high school when I came out to my friends and it was the first time I had ever trusted anybody with a secret so powerful that it could either make me or break me. It could make me a stronger person in terms of dealing with my emotions and discovering who I am. On the other hand, it could break me by having everybody around me making dirty remarks right before my eyes. I began to question whether my being homosexual was right or wrong.
