1-26-16 Gay Marriage ( a brief history ) *new section of course starts You could not have ANY government job at all back in the day if you were gay Oppression was as dangerous as murder, serious injury and high persecution *teacher poses question* why do we continue with the hate for the gay community? What are the reasons for the thoughts and feelings of hate toward the gay community? They believe their children will be corrupted/influence sexuality, if the kid really likes the teacher they will want to imitate them possibly, a principle will want to keep it on the dl so press doesn’t get involved and funding stays at a good level, they are over sexualized so they are a threat to children (*in the case of a gay teacher*) Prior to the 19th century, the word "homosexual" did not exist, until late into the 19th century Orientations didn’t exist, therefore there was no stigma or morality issues it was common for kings and soldiers to have same sex relations, though who penetrated whom made a difference because of domination issues We have forced the gay community to be deviant in their behavior by shaming them publically so they are forced to sneak around and hide their desires. You only get caught if you're sneaking/hiding and you get in trouble. A vicious circle started by us. Its our fault we viewed them the way we did. Body, desire, and behavior *straight privilege* In order to make sense of the notions that we have of homosexuality nowadays, we need to understand How same sex behavior, sexual desire, and the body was understood prior to the 19th century Sodomy: the past referred to this as any sexual behavior not intended for reproduction (sodomites were the performers of this behavior) severely punishable Desire: prior to 19th century, everyone was assumed to have the same levels of desire. All desires are perverse/ virtue, self-control, and care for self were celebrated. The good desires (the desire of opposite sex) is healthy and these are good people. The other desires are bad and only bad people have them. Body constitution: tried saying that the genitalia of the homosexual is different from the hetero, and described as African American female genitalia would look but not true obviously so the data was tossed out and the idea was put down. Sexual orientation: who you are attracted to / different desires make different kinds of people / 1-28-16 Gay marriage / different views in different communities "The children were the focus of marriage in the gay community" Leaving children unprotected because of sexual orientation of parents The second reason was AIDS, partners getting sick and dying, being denied information and visitation, and taking care of sick ect And when that person dies and you live together and you have a car with someone, anything that was theirs cannot be yours Their 'real' family will get the belongings and what not Lots of values, behaviors, and lifestyles In the gay community there are people against gay marriage because they believe that no good can come from it 2-2-16 Sex Primary sex characteristics- physical characteristics at birth (testes, ovaries) Secondary sex characteristics- develop during puberty Linear life journey for America Girl is like a default category, if you're not a normal boy then you're a girl 2-4-16 Learning theories Sociobiology Social learning Cognitive development - children are actively involved in learning all behaviors including gender identity Symbolic interaction - how gender roles are socially constructed / impression management: Erving Goffman's concept of impression managements is defined and illustrated Feminist approaches
