Is it too much to hope for that social bias begin to wane in exchange for a more understanding and open-minded world?

Coworkers And AIDS: Attitudes
[ send me this paper ]
12 pages in length. Fear and intolerance comprise the vast majority of attitudes towards AIDS within the workplace. Even though the general public is well-educated by now as to the safety issues associated with contact to an AIDS patient, there still remains unfounded apprehension when it comes to working within the same environment as those with AIDS. Clearly, the HIV/AIDS population faces considerably more challenges than other members of society do, in that they have to struggle just to achieve a modicum of acceptance. Their societal counterparts, who are frequently ignorant to deeper issues surrounding the disease, often unknowingly make them feel inadequate and worthless when it comes their life choices. Inasmuch as the workplace is often a hotbed for judgmental attitudes, AIDS patients have experienced undue stress that is directly related to workplace attitudes. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

Female Androgynous Adolescents: Better Self-Image Than Being Either Very Masculine Or Very Feminine Girls?
[ send me this paper ]
8 pages in length. When it comes to social acceptance, there exist some very strict guidelines: An individual is either male or female. Indeed, little room for approval is given for those who do not fall into one of these two confining categories, often forcing people to assume roles that abide by social dictates. Female adolescents are particularly susceptible to issues of androgyny as they relate to self-image and overall social acceptance. One can readily argue that those female adolescents who display androgynous tendencies do not, in fact, feel better about themselves than if they were either very masculine or very feminine girls, inasmuch society places much too much pressure for an individual to offer a clear and recognizable distinction between the two portrayals.

Herve Guibert's "To The Friend : Who Did Not Save My Life"
[ send me this paper ]
3 pages in length. The social and political implications of AIDS boils down to a matter of privacy, a point clearly addressed in Herve Guibert's "To The Friend : Who Did Not Save My Life." Clearly, a fine line exists between what the public needs to know and an individual's right to privacy. Guibert's implication is that it is obvious that there is no redeeming factor in knowing who is affected by AIDS and who is not, inasmuch as there is still no cure. It makes absolutely no sense to put people through the pain and suffering of exposing themselves to an already hostile community; by doing so, the HIV-infected person only stands to receive incessant persecution for something that cannot be helped at this point in time.

Lesbian Issues and the Construct of Homosexuality in America
[ send me this paper ]
This 8 page report discusses homosexuality and focuses to a great degree on lesbian issues and concerns. The feminist movement largely changed perceptions of gender, and the gay and lesbian movements significantly altered conceptions of sex, so that what were once seen as permanent moral standards are now viewed as historical and political constructions. As the report notes, individual state hate crime statutes that exclude gay men and lesbians from protection violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment by failing to protect homosexuals when protecting members of other groups subject to hate-motivated criminal activity. American society, as a whole, must understand that it is denying guaranteed individual Americans fundamental rights when it discriminates against gays and lesbians. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

Oscar Wilde: Reflection Of Homosexuality In His Works
[ send me this paper ]
7 pages in length. Did Oscar Wilde's homosexual tendencies provide the author with a hidden theme throughout his works? Some have argued that the author's anxieties with regard to his own homosexuality represents a subtle but obvious enough underlying theme. Although the characters in Oscar Wilde's stories are all in heterosexual relationships, critics contend that there exists an undercurrent of homosexual desire between and among the main characters. They cite that in many of his works, exposure of a secret sin or indiscretion and consequent disgrace is central in design, clearly symbolizing the author's penchant toward homosexuality throughout his literary creations. The writer discusses how one only needs to peruse the myriad pages of Wilde's works in order to ascertain the truth: there is no homosexual reference, hidden or otherwise. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Psychosocial Functioning Of The Family
[ send me this paper ]
14 pages in length. Lisa was fed up with hiding the fact that she was a lesbian. While she was not quite sure how her family would react to such news, she had reached the end of her rope; no longer could she continue living a lie. If her mom and dad are not receptive to her sexual orientation, she pondered, she was old enough to live on her own. To be sure, living in a house where homosexuality is a dirty word is no place for Lisa. Her brother, on the other hand, would be openly accepting of her alternative lifestyle, inasmuch as he had always been the underdog who can relate to being different. Would that automatically brand her family as dysfunctional, even though her parents were pillars of the community? On the outside, Lisa and her brother were always putting forth an image quite removed from their real selves as a means by which to uphold their parent's social representation. But now, thought Lisa, it was time for her to relinquish the deep-seated guilt associated with her well-to-do white bread family and take back her own life. The writer discusses how her family reacts to the news, as well as how it impacts the family structure. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

Same-Sex Marriage -- Issues and Case Law
[ send me this paper ]
This 5 page report discusses legislation and court decisions prohibiting or supporting same-sex marriages. Those who want to make their legal point in favor of the legality of same-sex marriages point to the fact that banning same-sex marriage is fundamentally discriminatory. Their opponents make their objections based on the belief that marriage is about procreation and that same-sex marriages would actually add to taxpayer burden since gay couples would be eligible for federal benefits and tax breaks. However, one of the strongest points made by those opposed to such unions is that one state court (or even several) should not dictate marriage laws for the entire nation. Various case law related to the issue are briefly examined -- Baehr vs. Lewin, Bowers v. Hardwick, Romer v. Evans, Loving v. Virginia, and Stan Baker et al. vs. State of Vermont. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

The Death Of Gay Disco
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Disco's resurgence in that late 1990s has fulfilled one of popular culture's perpetual prophecies: give a particular fad twenty five years to return and when it does, it will be hotter than the first time around. Portrayed as the heart and soul of the seventies, disco was more than just a dance phenomenon; rather it defined an entire generation. However, a particular element of that generation that was responsible for giving birth to disco is nowhere to be found amidst this revival. Peter Braunstein, author of the article entitled "The Last Days of Gay Disco: The Current Disco Revival Conceals Its Homo Soul," contends that gays and lesbians founded what has come to be the legacy of the seventies.

The Social Development of Homosexuals Regarding 'Coming Out'
[ send me this paper ]
10 pages in length. The social development of a homosexual person relies greatly on whether or not they choose to 'come out.'

This is a common choice for many homosexuals because they do not want to cause strife among their family members. But the problem herein lies in the fact that they are trying to be something they are not, which could serve only to arrest their social development. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
