Each of these perspectives has their own influences as to why someone becomes a homosexual whether it is from being within the family or the chemicals within the brain causing it. Historical perspective is the perspective that a person becomes a homosexual because in some cases it is part of their tradition. Homosexuality has been around for a long time and was also displayed in areas such as vases within Rome. Homosexuality was looked down upon though by many including the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic communities. When it came to homosexuality it was looked down upon so much that if convicted the person did not get sent to prison but instead was sentenced to pay a fine.
Likewise, this applies to the homosexual problem. There is a lot of movements associated with homosexuality at this time, and yet disputes from the both sides never come to an end. Acceptance of homosexuals has come far, but in society today we aren't anywhere near reaching an overall acceptance. Many people have hateful and discriminatory feelings toward homosexuals. Homosexuals are into the same sex and heterosexuals are into opposite sex.

There are those that believe that society has created homosexuality/lesbianism by allowing the attraction to the same sex to live their lives as heterosexuals; then there are those that believe that being gay is something that a person is born with and passed down throughout generations.

3a) -1 When the homosexuals along with the heterosexuals were rioting for their social and political view. -2 John Brigg’s Proposition is to get rid of the entire homosexual to “protect” their heterosexual children, even the public school teachers who are accused of being a pedophile because of being gay. -3 When Senator Briggs and Supervisor Harvey had a debate in San Francisco and then in Fullerton, Briggs claims that gay people become teachers as a way to recruit children to become one of them.

– A good introduction and link to the title When investigating about homosexuals, some people try to understand by looking for what may be the cause of their sexuality. A group of scientists in 2012 suggested that homosexuality is passed down through the generations from mother to son and from father to daughter leading American scientists to suggest that homosexuality is an epigenetic link and not a genetic one. Epigenetics explains how gene expression is regulated by temporary switches (epi-marks) which are attached to the backbones that determine their effect on our development. Sigmund Freud claims that homosexuality is a personality disorder and a result from the person failure to deal with repressed infancy and traced the causes back to the parent-child relationship. This is supported by Elizabeth Moberly who said “a homosexual orientation does not depend on a genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalance, or abnormal learning processes but on difficulties in the parent-child relationship”.

Jalal Bennett English III Pd.4 How The HIV/ AIDS Outbreak In The 1980’s Relates To The Crucible Typically people haven’t been known to deal with things they are uncertain of very well. The aids hysteria is very similar to the Salem witch trials because both cases were caused by fear. The people didn’t know how to deal with the situation. Also in both cases extreme measure were taken to keep the witches and those with aids away from the rest of society so the people who had the disease or problem wouldn’t give it to those who didn’t. Many people were also accused and given false labels during both of these times, innocent people were accused of being witches, and given the label a witch, and during the aids hysteria people were considered gay or a drug user if you had aids, even if you weren’t.
Homosexuality "Marriage" is a bond recognized by various institutions, between a man and a woman. Not only a man and a woman define “marriage”, but pairs of the same sex fulfill the criteria of a successful marriage as well. William Bennett, the author of “Against Marriage”, dictates that allowing homosexuals to get married will change the meaning of marriage while Andrew Sullivan claims that "they make a deep commitment to one another and to society; in exchange, society extends the benefits to them”. Although, over the years, people have changed the essence of marriage to suit their personal needs, but many constitutions are biased towards equality of rights resulting in the condemnation of personal integrity.
This is considered to be of high risk because it can pass other diseases which can make them ill because of their low immune system already being weak by the HIV virus. Some men find it difficult to ask their partners to wear a condom because it raises feelings of insecurity and infidelity in the relationship. In many cases men don’t have access to condoms so they decide to have unprotected sex. Many gay men have difficulty disclosing their sexual orientation because of fear of rejection from family, friends, children and society. It is advised that they receive mental health treatment to deal with these fears of rejection.
How would you feel if someone randomly approached to you and tell you “you’re gay”? Yes, you, like me or everyone else in this classroom, would definitely be angry and baffled because you take that comment as condescending. It generally means stupid or weird, but as you all may know, the word “gay” stands up for something else as well – a homosexual person. Homosexuality, (or bisexuality inclusive), has been the key word for ethical, religious, social, or any kinds of debate in the United States in the recent years. Despite such rapid development of human beings and extensive globalization, our view towards people who are different from us still remains narrow and conservative.
