Romantic/Sexual Relationships are about People not Parts and Points

Romantic/Sexual Relationships are about people not parts or points; this is what pisses me off about members of the LGBT communities that pride themselves on engaging in the type of gun notching practices normally associated with straight high school and college boys attempting to prove their masculinity through entrapping unsuspecting girls in provocative situations that they may not be able to remove themselves from without besmirching their reputations. "I'll prove that he's gay, watch and see girl" When being honest about the practice of "bagging the straight" members of the LGBT community know exactly what I'm talking about. A member of the LGBT community proving that they're worth having by
finding various ways of luring a "straight, the oppressive heterosexual "other"" into a compromising sexual situation, or taking advantage of them when their under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

What all "baggers" straight or gay have in common is their inability to respect the lives of others as much as they desire that their own lives be respected; however it's the baggers' overwhelming insecurity in their desirability as individuals on multiple levels that push them into acts of bagging unsuspecting victims. According to author C. JoyBell C “There are those whose primary ability is to spin wheels of manipulation. It is their second skin and without these spinning wheels, they simply do not know how to function.” Marginalized Communities of otherness often mask their own dysfunctional behaviors by setting up both healthy and unhealthy individuals to take the heat for their inability to function appropriately in society with others due to their lack of internalized versus materialized self worth; this does not mean that all individuals of MCOs are highly dysfunctional game players, however those who are often get and bring unwanted attention to those members of they're communities that are quite healthy while creating divided loyalties, and internalized discord within their communities.

Its quite possible that Sappho was facing this situation within various communities situated upon the Isle of Lesbos (The Swan) where she may have witnessed or been exposed to the harmful interactions of highly dysfunctional individuals that utilized their otherness (LGBT identity) to justify their inappropriate behaviors and actions towards others; thus it would be understandable that she fear lost of a highly functional and authentic lover due to such a lost placing her in a vulnerable position where she would have to seek out another suitable lover to replace the one she lost.

Summary of the Cellouid Closet

The 'Celluloid Closet', movies teach us what to think about the world, the movies opening line as voiced by academy award winner and costar of 'Some Like It Hot' Tony Curtis. This statement is akin to what psychology refers to as predictive programming.  What is mentioned when we are introduced to the sissy as created by Hollywood is that Hollywood's projection of homosexuality into the mind of American audiences could be said to create the pre-conscious and unconscious framework for society's interpretation of those identifying as other than heterosexual.However, within the various scences are unsubtle hints of how Hollywood viewed all those it considered other: the white male painted up to resemble an African slave, a young woman, possibly lesbian,  being passed about by demons, during a scene in which a young, white female virgin is assaulted by a villainous lesbian the camera is suddenly shifted towards an African mask.  It is during this time that the Cath…

The Intersection of Self and Humanity: LGBTQ Political Identity

The SelfAre opinions of the self or the self of "others" is derived from our interpersonal relationships: the family home, the home of friends and relatives; society due to its ability to determine the child's path of success and development outside their family home, or the influence of relatives based upon its readiness to provide the child with: protection, resources, cooperation, belonging, and interactions . The Lev Vygotskys' theory of sociocultural, cognitive and social learning theories establish the importance of both parents and society in individual development. Two of these principles bare a direct relationship to the formation of identity 1 ( development cannot be separated from its social context, 2 ( language plays a central role in development. These two principles of Vygotskys serves to undermine the use of the Bell Curve to prove  white male or Asian intellectual superiority over women, and other people of color particularly black Americans.
