The History Of Bromance, The Rise Of Its Popularity, And The Divergences Between Bromance And Homosexuality In The Human Mindset, Aaron M. Ash Dec 2014

The History Of Bromance, The Rise Of Its Popularity, And The Divergences Between Bromance And Homosexuality In The Human Mindset, Aaron M. Ash

Aaron M Ash

Since the beginning of time, man has needed man—as a friend, a teacher, a confidant, or even something more. As time has gone on, this idea has continued to evolve up until the 1990s when Dave Carnie coined the term ‘Bromance’ in the skateboard magazine, Big Brother. Ironically the term did not become popular until the seventh season of Big Brother, a popular reality television show, when contestants Will Kirby and Mike Malin referred to their relationship as a bromance. Since then, society has seen an ever increasing number of bromances in television, including children’s shows; music; and ...


Entre La Efervescencia Y La Ruptura De Un Espacio De Placer En Salón De Belleza De Mario Bellatin, Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio Nov 2014

Entre La Efervescencia Y La Ruptura De Un Espacio De Placer En Salón De Belleza De Mario Bellatin, Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio

Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio, Ph.D

Este articulo analiza la novela Salón de belleza (1994) de Mario Bellatin desde un punto de vista histórico-social para documentar la manera cómo el VIH/sida ha sido visto desde sus inicios. Se trata de un proceso escriturario en el que la marginalidad se conforma a través de una descripción metafórica de un espacio plagado por la muerte. Sin embargo, el simbolismo dibujado en la novela por los infectados de una misteriosa enfermedad, alude a la deconstrucción de cualquier barrera fronteriza entre lo que se considera marginal y no marginal, es decir, la marginalidad hace eco de un grito desesperado ...


Getting Your Bloke On: Gender Issues In The Reality Competition 'I Will Survive', Frank Miller Oct 2014

Getting Your Bloke On: Gender Issues In The Reality Competition 'I Will Survive', Frank Miller

Frank M Miller III

The Australian reality competition "I Will Survive" set out to find a cast replacement for the leading role in the Broadway production of "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert." The stage version closed halfway through production the series, forcing a repositioning of the competition as the search to find "Australia's next triple threat." Even when the main prize was a role as a drag queen, however, the series presented a heterocentric approach to gender that treated drag less as a means of personal expression than as a part in a play that just happened to be about two gay men ...

A Corpus-Based Study Of Register And Collocational Variation In The Semiotics Of Sexuality, Kirk Marshall Wilkins Mar 2014

A Corpus-Based Study Of Register And Collocational Variation In The Semiotics Of Sexuality, Kirk Marshall Wilkins

Kirk Marshall Wilkins

A number of organizations, including GLAAD (2010), have expressed displeasure with the use of the term “homosexual,” noting it features problematic connotations. To analyze how this problematic term is instantiated within language and its recent evolution in comparison to other terminology for the gay community in discourse, a corpus-based study of recent diachronic,register, and disciplinary variation in COCA was undertaken. This study also considered the discourse prosodies that these different terms may establish through their different collocations.Data derived indicated that the discursive evolution in the representation of the gay community is not monolithic, but rather myriad. While there ...

Pégame Pero No Me Dejes: La Disputa Entre El Espacio Buga Y El Gay En Quizás No Entendí (1997) De Gerardo Guiza Lemus, Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio Feb 2014

Pégame Pero No Me Dejes: La Disputa Entre El Espacio Buga Y El Gay En Quizás No Entendí (1997) De Gerardo Guiza Lemus, Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio

Juan Carlos Rocha Osornio, Ph.D

Teniendo en cuenta el trasfondo del SIDA y “pasado el susto” como se expresara el escritor mexicano de temática homosexual, Luis González de Alba, la comunidad gay mexicana de finales del siglo XX continúa haciendo frente a nuevas vicisitudes. Sin embargo, ninguna de ellas se aparta del incasable (y aunque parezca trillado) deseo de conocer a ese alguien especial, a esa persona con la cual entablar una relación que vaya más allá del simple ligue sexual; es decir y en términos concretos a la búsqueda de una relación de pareja duradera. En este trabajo analizo la novela Quizás no entendí ...


"Purple People": "Sexed" Linguistics, Pleasure, And The "Feminine" Body In The Lyrics Of Tori Amos, Megim A. Parks Feb 2014

"Purple People": "Sexed" Linguistics, Pleasure, And The "Feminine" Body In The Lyrics Of Tori Amos, Megim A. Parks

Megim A Parks

The notion of a “feminine” style has been staunchly resisted by third-wave feminists who argue that to posit a “feminine” style is essentialist. Yet, linguists such as Norma Mendoza-Denton and Elinor Ochs discuss indexicality and shifting through salient variables, a process called entextualization. Further, French feminists such as Hélène Cixous and Julia Kristeva use the linguistic concept of intertextuality to explain certain poetic uses of language that might cause what Luce Irigaray calls “irruption of the semiotic chora”—moments within language where boundaries in the semiotic chain of signification are “blurred.” Thus, while current feminism has moved strictly away from ...


Marriage Rights For Transgender People In Hong Kong: Reading The W Case, John Nguyet Erni Dec 2013

Marriage Rights For Transgender People In Hong Kong: Reading The W Case, John Nguyet Erni

Professor John Nguyet Erni

This paper concerns a highly publicized Court case in Hong Kong, regarding a transsexual woman’s right to marriage. In 2010, Miss “W,” as she has been known, sought recognition of post-operative transsexuals as a legitimate “man” or “woman” in a matrimonial union. She also sought declaration from the Court that should such recognition be denied, the existing marriage laws should be pronounced unconstitutional. After several rounds of litigation, the Court of Final Appeal ruled in W’s favor, setting a groundbreaking precedent in gender-related jurisprudence in Hong Kong. This paper first briefly discusses the legal and social context for ...

"Quadruple Consciousness”: A Literature Review And New Theoretical Consideration For Understanding The Experiences Of Black Gay And Bisexual College Men At Predominantly White Institutions, Donald Mitchell Jr., Darris R. Means Dec 2013

"Quadruple Consciousness”: A Literature Review And New Theoretical Consideration For Understanding The Experiences Of Black Gay And Bisexual College Men At Predominantly White Institutions, Donald Mitchell Jr., Darris R. Means

Donald Mitchell Jr., Ph.D.

This article synthesizes literature on Black gay and bisexual college men and introduces a new theoretical consideration for understanding the experiences of Black gay and bisexual college men at predominantly White institutions building on W. E. B. Du Bois’ (1903/2010) theory of double consciousness and Vivienne Cass’ (1979, 1984) model of sexual identity formation—what the authors consider “quadruple consciousness.” The article closes with recommendations for practice and future research.


Strengthening Services For Lgbtq Clients: Best Practice Recommendations For Rural Low-Income Service Providers, Elizabeth G. Holman, Ramona F. Oswald, Dina Izenstark, Shawn N. Mendez, Kimberly A. Greder Dec 2013

Strengthening Services For Lgbtq Clients: Best Practice Recommendations For Rural Low-Income Service Providers, Elizabeth G. Holman, Ramona F. Oswald, Dina Izenstark, Shawn N. Mendez, Kimberly A. Greder

Dina Izenstark

People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer (LGBTQ), are more likely to be poor than heterosexual
people. While they face the same general risk factors for poverty as others, LGBTQ people may experience
additional discrimination in hiring, employment, and compensation, as well as face rejection from friends and family members who potentially could provide financial support in times of need. For LGBTQ people who live outside of large cities, the risk for poverty is even greater7. Thus, it is important that low-income service providers in rural communities provide culturally competent services to sexual minorities and their families.

Rasmus R. Simonsen Interviewed By Massimo Filippi And Marco Reggio, Rasmus R. Simonsen

Rasmus R Simonsen, PhD

What does declare himself a vegan? How does the transition from a meat diet to a vegan affect the sense of identity? There are traditions and conventions established by long time that determine what we eat and how we eat. Veganism calls into question preconceived notions about what a diet "appropriate" and on how to live in the contemporary Western liberal societies. Veganism is opposed to the fundamental characteristics of the way we act. Challenge our self.
