The idea of progress

Im going to talk to you about the notion of idea of progress. Firts First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion : the goal is to advance society in every possible way with the help of science or whatever. It's about improving it, making it more interesting or even revolutionizing the whole world. Here we're going to focus on homophobia, so is the mentality on regarding homosexuality is progressing in a positive way?


To illustrate my idea, I'll take my inspiration from the movie Philadelphia, which is a true story. In the film we talk it talks about homophobia, it shows the mentality about concerning homosexual people in 1993. For example, a young lawyer was fired because he had AIDS, but mainly because he was homosexual, even though he was doing an excellent job. At that time, sexual orientation was seen as something very important in society if we did not follow the norms.


Homophobia manifests itself through verbal or written insults, mockery, humiliation, harassment, denial of service. In the 1960s, the police constantly chased homosexuals from their meeting places. They are were not accepted by the rest of the community. The gay community opened up a lot during the 1970s. That was the time when a lot of gay organizations formed, for example the Chicago Gay Alliance.


In the 1980s, homosexuality was even considered a disease and people who were "affected" had to go to a psychiatric hospital. Today laws have been put in place to protect homosexuals but this is not enough since 73 countries in the world still condemn homosexual relations in court, and mentalities in several countries remain very closed on this subject even though there has been progress over the last few years.

Those who are not homosexual have taken an interest in the subject of homosexuality and most are even in favour of them having the same rights as everyone else. Political campaigns also need to address this issue to support them.


To conclude Homosexuals are still not accepted by everyone, despite the great changes. There are still those who are afraid to admit that they are homosexuals because they are uncomfortable about it . it's a situation that's evolving, but very slowly.
