Sociology Discussion

1. Factors such as the legalization of same-sex marriage, increasing visibility of the transgender community, and greater social acceptance of LGBTQ+ people have bought to light some of the unique issues faced by this community. However, do you think that there is more that needs to be done to increase the social supports available and offered during life transitions? Why might social supports be especially important to LGBTQ+ people as they enter college or parenthood?
2. How are transgender people discriminated against? Are they denied certain rights?
3. At what age should a child be allowed to change their gender? Should the parents or the child be in control of whether or not they change their gender? Do you agree or disagree with parents who opt to allow their children to have a sex change?
