The Social Cause of Gender Identity

People want equality. People expect to be treated equally when the action they do is affecting the people around them. The effects aren’t “positive”. In our day and age people have reconsidered their gender. They want to be “different” . They want to stand out and be a change, but as it was said before, the change isn’t positive.  Once a trend goes viral it seems like so do the people. In a snap of a finger, people right and left are becoming walking imitations of everything that seems to take the stage. People no longer have their own “authenticity”. It’s all about doing what they do and not what you want to do, it’s no longer about how you feel about your body, but of how they see it and how they purpose you should look. Since when did society tell us how to dress? Since when did society tell us howto “fit” in?  People now see what’s trending and in a blink of an eye, without any conscious of what they might want or how they really feel about the trend they become a shadow to it.Many people say that we are discriminating homosexuals and transgender people, but are we really? They say we group them, segregate them, and that we see them and treat them differently, but is that wrong? They make our environment uncomfortable, unpleasing to attend, feeling sexually disturbed, and personally feeling out-of-place, because we don’t follow the same trend. They say we have the freedom of speech, yet we cannot stand for our own beliefs or freedoms, because anything said or done against them defiles against us. For example, a lesbian couple came in asking for a designed wedding cake at Sweet Cakes Bakery in Portland, Oregon, and to their surprise they were denied service, because the owners said that providing a cake for their wedding would have violated their Christian beliefs against same-sex marriage.  Following this, the women complained to the state Bureau of Labor and Industries, which brought charges of 135,000 dollars saying that the owner of Sweet Cakes Bakery had unlawfully discriminated the couple because of their sexual orientation. What happened to our freedom of speech? What happened to our freedom of religion? If it is our belief and we choose to imply our beliefs into our lives and private property, which in our fifth amendment it clearly stated  that,  then why are a group people who seem to stand out in our society allowed to control and change what our nation was built upon? In our 14th Amendment it states that “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”  If these are our laws then why aren’t we abiding by them? These laws were created so we can have rights as an individual, but as time has passed so have our laws. Just because we have experienced so many different types of movements and inclinations, it doesn’t mean we are compelled to try the homosexual and transgender trend too. They seem to “trend’ because it’s something unusual. When you’re out at the store or at the mall and you spot a homosexual or transgender it catches your eye. You find yourself constantly looking back, observing, and questioning, That is not because you are intrigued by it. It is because it is “un-normal’ and it messes with your mind. It takes you places you can’t quite understand.They put you in a position to which you are either disgusted or you don’t care because it hasn’t affected you yet. This is just the beginning of something uncontrolled and unstoppable. If they have already tweaked with the rules and regulation now, what will be of them in  the years to come? If we are allowing them to be and do what suits them best now then  how will we put a stop to them in the future?
