Sexual orientation is a significant source of inequality. LGBT individuals experience bullying, taunting, and violence; they may experience employment discrimination; and they are not allowed to marry in most states. Because of the stress of living as LGBT, they are at greater risk than heterosexuals for several types of physical and mental health problems.
On a macro level, how should the U.S. move to be more inclusive of the LGBT community?
After your answer, reply to two of your classmates.
Along side with many other issues that split our people, this should be the least of what concerns the United States. Sexual preference should not determine nor limit anyones opportunities, especially if it involves the freedom they’re entitled to. Sometimes people’s reactions are to be cruel to what they don’t yet understand and although we’d like to assume the best of our neighbors, reality kicks in with a harsh punch and denies anything from “normal.” We’ve adopted this normality into our world thats structured and on a macro-level, I believe if we’ve taught the generation forth to be more welcoming and curious of what is not them, that would surely poke the minds of our youth and allow them to discover on their own rather than have this negative presumption. Taking part of this community, I feel It is important to be a voice in change, to continue the fight and seek a better tomorrow. Any monumental movement within history started with one voice, we should continue on to teach and learn in unity.
There are many ways the U.S can move in a positive direction to be more inclusive of the LGBT community. To be able to make schools and workplaces educated of the community. As well as tolerate no discrimination against people no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity. Giving this opportunities to those in the community will give them more freedom to be themselves and will fear less judgment. Another way to be more inclusive is LGBT community having nondiscriminatory health care services and insurance. As well as protecting their civil rights when engaged in the criminal legal system and law enforcement.
