The world would be a better place if people were not so quick to judge. There has always been some group in society that has been looked down upon, whether it was the Jews, the blacks, or any other minority because people judged. In today’s society, one group that often gets oppressed is the non-heterosexuals. This includes lesbians, gays, transgendered individuals, and bisexuals.

The reason societal oppression occurs is because people have a more difficult time accepting people who are different from themselves. This can be seen over and over again in history. People need to learn that just because someone is different, it doesn’t mean that they are inferior, and it especially does not mean that they do not deserve respect. The non-heterosexual community deserves the same treatment as others in society. Everyone has the freedom to believe what they want and live their life the way they choose.
The best way to reverse society’s thinking is to teach your children not to judge others. Let them play with anyone they want, regardless of their skin color or other differences. Friendships should be based on the commonalities that are more than skin deep. For instance, racism is still an issue in the world, but more and more children are learning to accept differences, and it has become less of a problem in schools. However, the world still has a long way to go before every race, gender, or difference is accepted in society and is no longer the subject of oppression.
