Some pastors have a wicked and warped interpretation of scripture and religion. In my previous blog post Hatred Towards LGBT People By Those Who Are Not Knowledgeable About LGBT Issues, I talked about the misunderstanding of LGBT individuals by uneducated people, and the hatred that is shown. This post was quickly shared by LGBT individuals, Pride organizations, and several local activists and advocates. With this blog post being shared so rapidly and so broadly, this has drawn scrutiny from several groups, and anti-LGBT individuals.
To begin with, I am not a medical doctor, or counselor, or teacher. I do not have a Ph.D. These are simply well-publicized and known reports on LGBT individuals, along with my opinions. This is merely an informational article to enable the people to know the struggles LGBT go through in their daily lives. What drives these people to be LGBT even though they endure hatred and hurt every day?
First and foremost we need to understand that sexuality is a natural function of our bodies like eating or sleeping. As such, we need to treat it like any other bodily function with understanding and thought.
Just as our eating and sleeping habits become distorted by the pressures of society, our anxieties, and the lack of sensible control (which can ultimately become obesity or anorexia,) so can sex, this very elemental function, become manipulated and distorted by these same pressures — the values of society, our many anxieties and the lack of sensible control which still continue to shape human sexuality all over the world.
US tycoon Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of child sex trafficking, committed suicide in a New York prison where he was being held, according to local media reports. Epstein’s body was found on Saturday morning, per reports. Towards the end of July, the embattled Epstein was found with marks on his neck, which clearly pointed to an apparent suicide attempt, US media reported.
Does your vagina stink? Or worse: Has anyone ever told you that your vagina smells? Whatever the case, relax, because it’s not strange all. However, there may be something wrong if your vagina has a different odor than usual, and it may only be serving as an alert to you. Your vagina may stink because of various reasons. Well, you may have worn an underwear that does not allow it to breathe completely, perhaps your hormones are out of balance, or maybe you have contracted a fungal infection. Observing the following tips to keeping such embarrassments at bay.
France’s government under the stewardship of president Emmanuel Macron has drafted a law on bioethics. The law includes broadening the list of people who can have access to treatments such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization. Single women of any sexual orientation will no longer have to travel abroad to have children. The proposed law if passed would give them access for the first time to assisted reproduction medical techniques.
The question of the age…is it just an unimportant number or is it a little more complex than that? It’s difficult to answer this question, since many couples form without taking into account the possible age difference. The stories of couples where partners have an age difference are legion: in our own circle, in the media or among celebrities.
But is it really normal? For the people concerned, it is without a doubt. But note that most often, the man is older, while the woman is younger. Why is it always in this sense? Why do we see more couples where the man is older than the woman and not the opposite? What are the reasons? You might wonder why women aspire to be in a relationship with older men. And why men aspire, for their part, to be in a relationship with women younger than them. And the question arises all the more because age disparities are often extremely important.
Recent research has identified 11 reasons why men tend to choose younger women:
A team of researchers said Monday that “no later than 2023” they will circulate the first vaccine against Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which will stop “at least 65%” the spread of the pandemic. They confirmed it in the framework of the 10th World Scientific Conference on HIV in Mexico. A human study will be carried out, involving 3,800 people and is estimated to begin in the coming months in the United States.
Women have played an important role in our nation’s military history. They set the stage for future generations who wanted to serve their country, and proved that women could be as resilient and inspiring as men in times of conflict.
Women have actually been in every crisis and every war the United States has ever been in. But only recently have their contributions been recognized and appreciated.
Israel’s head of Education became the target of protests after saying he believes in the effectiveness of homosexual conversion therapies. Prime Minister Netanyahu condemned the declaration but gives no sign that he intends to dismiss a minister. Protests in Israel on Sunday heighten pressure for education minister Rafi Peretz to be fired.
June 6 saw an organized Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem.
The Orthodox Rabbis of Israel have called for Jews to demonstrate against the Gay Parade. Gay parades have become the custom almost throughout the whole world. There was recently a Gay parade in Tel Aviv. Homosexuality is not new. It always existed but was kept quiet and restricted to locations which were designated as places where Gays gathered such as Gay beaches, Gay clubs. The Gay community respected and recognized that there was opposition to them and conducted their interaction in public places designated for them.
A historic verdict was given by the India Supreme Court on September 6, 2018 in favor of the LGBTQ+ community, giving them freedom of privacy and the right to live their lives with dignity. People across the nation celebrated with huge enthusiasm and relief. But is it the final win? It took 157 years to reach this point and is it going to take again a long period of time for the society to realize and accept the situation?
According to the figures submitted to the SC in 2012, there were about 2.5 million gays in India which proves that there were not just a handful of people fighting for freedom of self acceptance. In spite of it, they faced bullying, experienced physical violence, being ignored and much more.
The 21st century, a modern era of humanity, still fails in understanding women’s right position in society and for a country’s development. And in this patriarchal society, women are still being objectified and are expected to follow men’s wishes even if it’s against her consent.
Here, I am talking about marital rape cases in India, where women’s consent is being suppressed, which is proved by Section 375, the provision of rape in the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which states – “Sexual intercourse by a man with his own wife, the wife not being under 15 years of age, is not rape.” Here, it clearly shows the neglected importance of women in a marriage, and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the government itself is encouraging marital rape under the veil of society, culture and tradition.
The three major western religions which are Christianity, Muslim, and Judaism all agree that it is forbidden to have sex before marriage. Marriage is for the sake of making a family. In all three religions marriage begins with a sacred ceremony. Religions seek to control the life of its constituents through controlling relationships between men and women.
Military Sexual Assault and Military Sexual Trauma are sensitive and controversial topics to discuss, but I have never been one to shy away from controversy. My articles have reflected my sometimes unpopular position that the military needed to open all its ranks to women service members.
It is still preserved today in Religious day schools Catholic School, Muslim Schools and Jewish Day Schools the custom of separation of sexes, girls school and boys school. Sometimes they may be in the same building but the classes are separate. Even in the secular world until thirty years ago there were also secular schools for boys only like Stuyvesant High School and Brooklyn Tech.
Understanding Sex Scandals in the Church Today
Sex conflicts in life exist from the time of Adam and Eve and are not new. Today there is a controversy about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. Sexual abuse in the Catholic Church is not new but in the past was covered up. There are two ways of building a spiritual life with marriage and without marriage.
