1.1655 Male Homosexuality In Chinese History: Alternative Or Supplement To Marriage?
Male homosexuality was a common practice in Chinese history. Several sources document the extent of this practice through long periods of Chinese history. It was also widely depicted in Chinese literature. Common literary terms for homosexuality included longyang, fen tao zhi ai (sharing or eating a peach), and duanxiu or cut sleeve. With few exceptions, however, male homosexuality did not replace heterosexual marriage nor was it seen as an alternative to marriage. Even as a kind of supplement to marriage, male homosexuality was not universally accepted. Though common, it was condemned by many. It was also illegal in the Qing period. These themes are discussed in this paper. 10 pgs. 51 f/c. 13b.

3.3721 Homosexuality and Rights.
This paper explores how divergence of scholarly publications and media reviews coincide during specific time frames. The paper notes how significant progress has been made in Western society on the issue of homosexuality. At one time, homosexuality was regarded as either a disease or a psychiatric disorder, and homosexuals were ostracized in society. Today, homosexuality has begun to be viewed by more people as a lifestyle choice, rather than as a sickness. Nonetheless, homophobia prevails in society, and the dominant culture continues to marginalize homosexuals and deny them true equality. 8 pgs. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

5.9137 An Argument for Genes on the Subject of Determining Homosexuality.
This paper will discuss the pros ad cons of choice verses genetics within the scope of homosexuality. By showing that many gays are influenced by genetics in their sexuality, we can see how this creates a point in matter, but in the field of psychology, it is obvious that both have their flaws and positive aspects. Also, the elements of cell structure are as well, a factor in the way that a person may choose the homosexual lifestyle in their lives. With these differing theories we can see how they weigh each other out, but the pros and cons of each argument will make themselves apparent. 12 pgs. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
