Today, it is considered by society to be disgusting and repulsive if a person is overweight; overweight people are regarded as gluttons. There is no doubt that many of these people live in hell in Dante’s hell and today. They are shunned, scorned and mocked by society for the way they look.

Michael Nguyen Nguyen 1 Professor Moore English 1C July 7, 2008 What does Race and Gender Coding have to do with Masculinity? When people think of masculinity they probably think of big strong guys who love to work out and those with a strong will--body and mind. That may be true; however masculinity goes way further than tough guys who love to workout at the gym. For instance, men usually overcompensate when their masculinity is threatened.

In the 1970’s, the gay community was fighting to be left alone, but throughout recent years, the growing desire is to become an active part of society. This change in the gay community reflects a change in society’s views towards homosexuality. In the 1970’s, homosexuals were considered perverts, deviants, and destroyers of the family. Today, the straight majority no longer holds those views, because of all the accomplishments made by the gay agenda since the 1970’s. The younger generations that have grown up seeing or experiencing the oppression and injustices placed on homosexuals are now in positions that influenced the change in society.

Even as you were defending yourself in an heroic fashion your omega male traits would show themselves. Have you ever heard of an omega male?
I think I both agree and disagree with how they portrayed certain issues in this movie. The conclusion of the movie ended with gays getting some rights, but on the other hand how homosexuals were treated throughout the movie was horrible and I definitely don’t agree due to my view and opinion on this issue. I am well aware that homophobia is a serious issue in todays society and you hear lot more about it today then what you would have ten years ago, and being gay is found a lot more common. I believe myself to have a strong understanding on the diversity in sexuality and more importantly discrimination. I have family members that are attracted to the same sex and I personally don’t think of them to be any different.
