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