(Rathus, Nevid & Fichner-Rathus, 2005) Historical and scientific viewpoints are greatly significant in the way that gay persons distinguish themselves today and how the development of gay communities have grown and changed. For example, looking at the historical standpoint, many of the male Greeks seen exploring their curiosity of interacting sexually with a member of the same sex, as totally normal and natural. However, the Christian Church did not agree with this view. They viewed it as a sin and un-natural. They also believed that a gay person is committing a sin and would burn in hell for having a sexual experience with a person of the same sex.
Hip Hop was conceived in the late 1970’s with artist such as The Sugar Hill Gang and the Fabulous Five. Back then, the idea behind creating this music was to express the struggles and culture of the urban individual, particularly African Americans. In addition, the music was about having a good time and this idea was clearly expressed in the lyrics of the day. Nevertheless by the late 1980’s as the popularity of Hip Hop approached its height, artists began to earn income that was unprecedented in the music industry. Many African Americans and people of color were not privy to such high incomes at the time.
Gender Roles Essay America is a prideful nation. Even though we are not the most unitized nation or necessarily peaceful, we are always striving to become more exceptional. While there are still many instances that make America a troubling place to live, we must be reminded that nothing and nowhere is perfect. If we as a nation continue to make advancements and corrections, maybe one day everyone can be satisfied and the greatest “American Dream” will be achieved.

Though not completely tolerated nor accepted, society today has familiarized itself with the idea of same sex relationships. In order to become more at ease, however, homosexuals had to endure a series of events such as the Stone Wall Riots, discrimination in groups and clubs, and personal hate geared towards the gay community. Homosexuals have gone through years of being ridiculed and discriminated against. Perhaps the most memorable and eye opening event in the history of the gay and lesbian community were the Stone Wall Riots. Prior to 1965, gay and lesbian bars were subject to constant raids in cities across the United States.
But the men that make the false accusations about the young girls are not held accountable for the lies or considered a lawbreaker. I’ve reread this article a few times now and I appreciate her points on how unfair women in our society were treated and think she gave great examples to back herself. Things have definitely come leaps and bounds since that time but there is for sure work still to be done in our society
An exception to this would be in times during war. Both men and women would participate in acts of homosexual intercourse to presumably satisfy their sexual needs while away from their spouses (Pomeroy, 2004). Homosexuality was also considered acceptable when used in education and in no way due to a sexual attraction. Sappho has proved otherwise in her poetry. With her erotic and provocative descriptions of women, she shows a desire to be with a woman in more ways than the ones deemed as socially acceptable.

Why They Are Not Allowed Since the 1980’s, gay men have been banned from donating blood due to the belief that they are more likely to be affected by HIV/ AIDS. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, “in 2008, the MSM (men who have sex with men) exposure category continued to account for the largest proportion of positive HIV test reports among adults, representing 45.1% (557) of positive tests reported” (Public Health Agency of Canada, 2011). Along with this, they represented 44% of new infections, and 19% of the affected group were unaware of their infection. Because of this, the governments of more than 25 countries have placed bans on men who have had sex with other men in certain time frames, ranging from 1-36 years, with some stating that if they have had sex with other men at all in their lives, they are ineligible. However, the main cause of HIV in gay men is not solely having sex with other men, but rather UNPROTECTED sex with an HIV positive partner.
You may also know some gay couples in the campus. Why suddenly gays don’t hide “underground” as they used to be? I know that there are lots of people know about this phenomenon, and there are some people wrote about the situation of homosexuality in China, even some compared homosexuality in ancient China to modern, but no one have ever answered the question I mention here why more and more young gays are being openly. That is what I want to research. The first section of my paper provides definitions of being openly and young gays in China.

The original Ku Klux Klan was formed, in April 1866, as a social organization for ex-confederates in Pulaski, Tennessee.
