Such concepts as race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality are pretty subjective and have social biases and prerequisites for shaping people’s minds and standpoints in a negative way. Evidently, there is no evidence that these notions have a reasonable basis for distinguishing and labeling them. Human beings dubbed as a black-related race face constant bullying and teasing, as they are representatives of the enslaved race that is inferior to white people. It stands to reason that it is a case of total and pervasive people’s misconception related to gender distinguish, a sexism philosophy, homophobia, and other sociological-related concepts. Currently, most nations are under the seizure of social disendorsement as they manifest controversial insignias of other ethical groups and sexual minorities. All these blatant courses of events contradict the concept of humanity and deprive and violate humans’ rights who present their different true selves. It is a great time to observe these concepts from another angle of view, thus providing other individuals who are longing for the truth with a clear-cut picture of the different reality. This very reality embraces equality and uniformity as essential concepts to combat people’s superstitions and biases.
Race-related theories cause a lot of escalating issues nowadays. Black race human beings try to debunk a lot of myths concerning their alleged second-class treatment given them by an innate birth position. Researchers have found that the definition of race and particular ethnicity belonging seems to be not proven scientifically. Individuals implemented these definitions as sociological differences were driven by their preconceived assessments. For instance, the word “Caucasian” means belonging to the white race, but, actually, not all white people are Caucasians. Johann Blumenbach, a founding father of the term “scientific racism,” was decisive that the Caucasian nation had the most beautiful skulls, predisposing their superior positions to Afro-American people. Ritzer claims that this world order with a strict race and ethical distinction “always causes disadvantageous differentiation and hierarchization” on superior nations’ behalf (247). According to this stereotype approach, such a phenomenon as racism was established. Several ethnical groups supported it, such as Naziasts and Jewish groups. These ethnic groups created severe oppression of human beings who did not correspond to the “perfect human race” image and wanted to erase them to the core.
Heteronormativity, homophobia, transphobia, and similar phenomena are common issues nowadays, as people tend to treat gender as a social aspect liable for their role distribution. In fact, gender is a biologically determined aspect; it has little to do with social, behavioral patterns prepossessing individuals’ position in society. Individuals who are free in expressing their sexual approaches contradicting the social and moral norms face a harsh crack-down on their standpoints and so-called oppositional perspectives. As human beings have conventional assessments concerning gender roles and functions, such oppressive concepts as homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and sexism were acquired. People who manifest their same-sex-related preferences in terms of their relationships are constrained by moral norms that do not accept gender as something performative. Being a representative of a particular gender, I have learned to treat all human beings with tolerance and loyalty, not paying attention to their sexual-related biases or orientations on a gender change.
At present, individuals are struggling with several unfair prejudices towards them, be it racism or sexism. They bear responsibility for their skin complexion that was innately given to them. They face underestimations concerning their decision to change their gender or a predisposed behavioral pattern dictated by an inborn gender position. Due to a wrong perception of cultural and social determining concepts, such escalating issues as homophobia, transphobia, ethnocentrism, and others developed. People might eliminate their gender, race, and ethnic prejudices, as they were launched to manipulate people’s thinking and make them real manpower.
