Homophobia A Weapon of Sexism – Pharr

Leave a comment

This article talks about how homosexual terms such as “lesbian” can be used to insult all women. It goes into how by many ways a woman can be “classified” as lesbian. Because of this, many women are afraid to be themselves because their lives are being judged upon certain actions. Women are afraid to be their true selves.

I believe that all women should be seen equally and not be labeled due to their lifestyles. It is also wrong to assume someone is a certain way because of the way they carry themselves or their actions. I believe this goes along with oppression. Non-feminists are doing anything they can to bring women to their lowest lows so that maybe they will give up the battle for equal treatment.
