Is the inexplicable logic of my life LGBT?

The Inexplicable Logic of My Life is an excellent memoir about the son of a gay Mexican-American man. It's also a very funny, thoughtful look at family, identity, and love. Francisco X. Stork was born in El Paso, Texas, to a father who was a sales manager for a candy company and a mother who worked as a legal secretary. He has two older sisters.

When Francisco was young, his parents divorced, and his mother later married another man. This did not seem to affect Francisco who had many friends and got good grades in school. However, when he went to college things changed. His mother's new husband drank too much and became angry with everyone including Francisco's mother. One night after coming home from class, she called 911 because she feared that her ex-husband might kill himself like his wife and daughter had. She told the operator that her son was not doing well academically and that she didn't know what would happen to him if something happened to her. The police took them both away from danger and sent them to rehab. After getting clean, Francisco's mother filed for divorce and moved with her new husband and children to California. While this was going on, Francisco stayed with his dad who lived in El Paso.

Is it true that being gay is a natural part of life?

Zeke Stokes of GLAAD went one better. This latest study, he says, "provides even more proof that being homosexual or lesbian is a normal aspect of human life, a conclusion that academics and scientists have drawn time and again." LGBTQ people's identities are not up for dispute. They are who they are.

Being gay is not a disease, nor is it something that can be cured. It does not make you weak or defective. It does not mean that you will become transgender later in life. Being gay is not an illness; it is a normal part of the diversity of human experience.

The idea that being gay is a natural part of humanity dates back as early as 2,500 years ago when Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi commented: "Even if men were to live forever, the number of men who would be gay would still be infinite."

In the 21st century, scientists are continuing to explain why being gay is important for maintaining a healthy population of animals and plants. Many species of birds and mammals have different sizes of chromosomes in their cells. A chromosome is a thread-like structure inside some cells that carries genes, the instructions for making proteins. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, while mice only have 46. When humans have an unequal number of chromosomes, it leads to a condition called uniparental inheritance which means that only children of mothers or fathers will have those chromosomes.

Why do some people objectify gay relationships?

Individuals who appropriate gay partnerships are also homophobic. For them, a gay relationship is nothing more than a means to fulfill their desires. This tendency is similar to how heterosexual guys objectify lesbian relationships because they believe they are "sexy" and exist just to gratify men's sexual need.

There is nothing wrong with shipping same-sex couples and reading fanfic as long as it does not cause damage to others. The issue is with individuals that do it to fulfill a fetish. This is true for both authors and readers. Ships and fan fiction give me the sense that I am finally being represented as a gay person.

What did Jen Hatmaker say about the LGBTQ community?

If this were 1999--the year that I was converted and walked away from the woman and the lesbian community I loved--instead of 2016, Jen Hatmaker's words about the holiness of LGBT relationships would have flooded into my world like a balm of Gilead. In fact, they still might if someone didn't try to ruin it for me.

In 2016, Hatmaker said some things on her popular blog that caused a firestorm in the gay community. In particular, she called gay marriage "licentious" and "sick." She also said she wouldn't welcome gays into her church because they go against God's plan for sexuality.

Her comments sparked a massive response from the LGBT community with many calling for her removal as speaker at a Christian conference aimed at improving relations between Christians and homosexuals. Although the conference organizers said they had no intention of removing her speaking spot, she canceled her appearance anyway after the pressure grew too great.

Here are some of the most controversial quotes by Jen Hatmaker.

On gay marriage: "Marriage has been defined as the union of one man and one woman. That is what it is for a reason...It is holy. It is special. It is unique. It is irreplaceable." (Source)

On homosexuality: "Homosexuality is a sin that has always destroyed families.

What is a queer theory in sociology?

"Queer theory" is a word that originated in the late 1980s to describe a corpus of critique on gender, sexuality, and subjectivity that emerged from gay and lesbian academics in subjects such as literary criticism, politics, sociology, and history. Queer theorists challenged conventional assumptions about sexuality and gender identity and argued that these categories are socially constructed.

Queer theories can be applied to many different contexts within social science. They have been used to analyze race, class, ability, and other types of difference. Many queer scholars are also involved with feminist work, and some combine both their feminism with their queerness to produce "third wave" or "fourth wave" feminisms.

The concept of queer studies was first introduced at San Francisco State University in 1989 by Michael Warner. He created this new field because he felt that there were not enough people interested in studying topics related to homosexuality and gender identity. Since then, many universities have established departments or centers devoted exclusively to queer studies.

Does everyone who participates in sociology need to be a scientist? No, anyone can participate in sociology. A sociologist is someone who uses scientific methods to study society. While most sociologists do conduct research using statistics and evidence from surveys, experiments, and/or observations, some also use more creative approaches such as qualitative analysis, historical perspective, and critical theory.

How is identity politics defined in the gay movement?

In a piece about the LGBT movement, Jeffrey Escofier describes identity politics thus: "The politics of identity is a type of cultural politics." It is dependent on the development of a culture capable of generating new and affirmative conceptions of the self, articulating collective identities, and so on.

This was owing, in part, to the fact that progressivism was mostly a Northern movement, although the majority of minorities lived in the South at the time. During the Progressive period, there were two key challenges facing African Americans (the country's largest minority at the time).

Identity politics characterizes groups as being so unlike to one another, with a chasm so vast and insurmountable that connection is pointless. Not only is it expected that working together will surely fail to bring about progressive change that would benefit any specific group, but it is also assumed that working alone will fail to bring about progressive change that would benefit any particular group.
