Winterson, Jeanette (1959- ), British novelist, best known for the experimental and sometimes controversial ways in which her fiction explores such issues as gender roles and sexual orientation. Winterson was born in Manchester, England, and adopted by religious parents who prepared her to become a preacher. A lesbian affair at the age of 15, however, estranged her from her family, and she left home. Working in various jobs, she continued her education, eventually studying English at Saint Catharine's College at the University of Oxford from 1978 until 1981, when she received her M.A. degree. She then worked at the Roundhouse Theatre in London, and thereafter in publishing until 1987, when

Sexual Orientation Today
Sexual orientation has come a long way in today’s world. There are many definitions of sexual orientation but the most common is a person’s sexual identity to the gender they are attracted to. Based on a survey of 2,000 adults in 2015 from the Public Religion Research Institute 7 percent of the adults identify themselves as either homosexual, bisexual, or transgender. Now with the world today being more accepting to LGBT community and continue to be, the percent of homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgender will continue to rise and make these individuals more comfortable with who they are.

, it is all about fighting for a form of love. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, and queer are all just different forms of it. One hundred years ago, interracial marriages were discriminated but now they can. Marriage is based on love, not color, race, or gender, so why determine someone's idea of love? The LGBTQ community is not requesting special treatment; they want the same treatment and respect as those not part of the LGBTQ community.
Furthermore, this topic is complicated because gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual identity, and sexual behavior are hard to understand. No gender orientation machine can make us feel what it is like to be attracted to the same sex. All these

-based violence. Hate crime is defined in the idealized way as a criminal offender that select their victims based on race, color, sexual orientation and disability (Faulkner, 2016). It is persecuted at a greater penalty when hate crime is defined in the court cases. Sexual assault cases should be persecuted at a greater penalty to demand the justice of the crime for the victims that had dealt with the unfairness of going to trail and those who had to heal in private.

Senate Bill 1146 seems to split individuals as it is firmly based on Postsecondary Discrimination based on sexual orientation. While this bill is a controversial topic especially for Christians, it reflects our fallen world. Many believers' are firmly opposed to this bill because it basically forces faith-based institutions to abide by these new standards that do not align with fundamental Christian values. On the opposite side, this bill allows college students the power to force this matter of "discrimination" on private institutions and that is simply unnecessary.

Although the general view and rights of the LGBT community have evolved greatly over the last several decades, there is still more to be done.

An Open Letter to the Tennessee Governor
Governor Bill Haslam,
I implore you to help change the current Tennessee laws pertaining to discrimination in the workplace, specifically to include protections for sexual orientation. The current discrimination laws don’t protect the hundreds of thousands of LGBT employees that reside in Tennessee, that needlessly suffers from the bigotry and religious fanaticism of others in the workplace. LGBT people have long since remained a target for discrimination. Much of this is derived from thousands of year-old religious teachings.

Not all celibate men or women abuse children, thirty percent of abuse happens within families by married men, not by unmarried priests, yet few people point to marriage as a cause of sexual abuse. Therefore, blaming celibacy distracts others from the real cause of child abuse- disordered sexual orientation towards children. If four percent of American priests have been accused of abusing children, then ninety four percent lead healthy lives.

Many people consider BDSM perverted, dehumanizing, or worse. But aficionados call it the most loving, nurturing, intimate form of human contact and play. In the words, “It’s not who you love, it’s how you love.” BDSM isn’t an orientation. It’s a lifestyle. That makes it much more reasonable to limit this kind of sexual expression (Saletan, W, 2013). People can have sex without having conversation, negotiation as to what all activities they will engage in, or even have any emotional connection between those involved. However, in BDSM, the players always arrange things in advance with clear, intimate communication

One-sided orientation and the poor quality of sexuality education are often blamed for growing challenges in sexual health, such as increasing pregnancy among teenagers, rising rates of sexually transmitted infections and sexual violence. Helping to improve sexual health, in general, is a major goal of the World Health Organization Guidelines ( “New”). It is foolish, if not responsible, to deny the reality that a growing number of individuals are engaging in sexual activities, and lack of awareness and knowledge about sex education affects their personal life, safety, health, family planning, marriage, finances, and social status.

Interestingly enough, though most international human rights treaties contain provisions against discrimination, none specifically mention sexual orientation, presumably due to the cultural acceptances of homosexuality around the world.

Furthermore, teenagers seldom have clear roles of their own in society but instead occupy an ambiguous period between childhood and adulthood. These issues most often define adolescence in Western cultures, and the response to them partly determines the nature of an individual’s adult years. Also during adolescence, the individual experiences an upsurge of sexual feelings following the latent sexuality of childhood. It is during adolescence that the individual learns to control and direct sexual urges.

Gender, Sexuality, and Shakespeare
In the Elizabethan era, the time period in which Shakespeare wrote his plays, the cultural outlook on gender was very black and white. Actions and attitudes were either seen as masculine or feminine. Women were to be patient, silent, and obedient. Men, on the other hand, were strong, courageous, and bold. Defining these gendered roles also made it easier for an audience to separate male and female characters in an all-male cast (Gerlach). Like gender, sexual orientation was also not socially questioned outside of the norm of heterosexuality. The terms homosexual and heterosexual didn't even exist yet. Shakespeare questioned

group who is known by few, whose struggles need to brought to light are those of the Gay Rights Movement. It all started in San Francisco in the late 1960’s, people were rejected from restaurants and many other different establishments. Then they were taken off the street and brutally beaten by police just because they had feelings for the same sex and the worst part is that gays were almost forced to come out against their will or they were going to be exposed and fired from their jobs. Thanks to a gay rights activist Harvey Milk, that did not happen, but they were almost forced to tell their deepest secret because others could not respect their sexual orientation.

Disregard our skin, our stature, and our sexual orientation, and we all have the same flesh and bones, yet we choose to judge based on something as simple as the color of what holds us together. A stereotype is defined as a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing. Stereotypes affect people by pushing them to believe that they are something they aren’t.
