What are some examples of concepts or constructions of masculinity and femininity that you see in society and in media?Weegy:
To be a man or a woman in our society is not just defined by the biological traits someone possesses, but it is also defined by what is expected that a man or a woman should act like in our society, [ which has been socially constructed and fed to us beginning at a very young age.This construction of ?femininity? or ?masculinity? normally begins with the colour of our clothing. Traditionally, pink is for girls, blue is for boys. Growing up, as children we are given toys that reinforce these ?rules? of ?femininity? or ?masculinity? and to reflect what our future role in society will be. Girls are given dolls and play kitchen sets, because one day we are going to be ?mommies?, and we will be the one who is doing most of the cooking, for her children and husband. Boys of course and given chemistry sets and G.I. Joe?s, because they will grow up to be smart, successful, strong and powerful.

Historically, what has been the social status of GLBT people?Weegy:
Socioeconomic status (SES) is often measured as a combination of education, income, and occupation. It is commonly conceptualized as the social standing or class of an individual or group. [ When viewed through a social class lens, privilege, power, and control are emphasized. Furthermore, an examination of SES as a gradient or continuous variable reveals inequities in access to and distribution of resources. SES is relevant to all realms of behavioral and social science, including research, practice, education, and advocacy.
SES Affects Everyone
Variance in socioeconomic status, including disparities in the distribution of wealth, income, and access to resources, affects everyone. Inequities in wealth and quality of life are increasing in the United States and globally. Behavioral and social science professionals possess the tools necessary to study and identify strategies that could alleviate these disparities at both individual and societal levels. Low SES and its correlates, such as lower education, poverty, and poor health, ultimately affect our society as a whole. Everyone benefits from an increased focus on the foundations of socioeconomic inequities and efforts to reduce the deep gaps in socioeconomic status in the United States and abroad.
SES Affects the Lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Persons
Evidence indicates that individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) are especially susceptible to being placed at a socioeconomic disadvantage. Thus, SES is inherently related to the rights and well-being of LGBT persons.
Differences in Income
While LGBT persons tend to have more education on average than the general population, evidence suggests that they make less money than their heterosexual and cisgender counterparts (Factor and Rothblum, 2007; Fassinger, 2007; Egan, Edelman, & Sherrill, 2008). ] Auto answered|Score .6|marrenosi|Points 48|User:
What is the status of GLBT people in the U.S. today?Weegy:
begin considering how countries treat gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender citizens when allocating foreign aid, [ President Obama announced today.
"I am deeply concerned by the violence and discrimination targeting LGBT persons around the world," Obama said in a memorandum. "Whether it is passing laws that criminalize LGBT status, beating citizens simply for joining peaceful LGBT pride celebrations or killing men, women and children for their perceived sexual orientation."
Obama said, "I am directing all agencies engaged abroad to ensure that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of LGBT persons."
Among the president's orders:
- Combat criminalization of LGBT status or conduct abroad.
- Protect vulnerable LGBT refugees and asylum seekers.
- Render assistance to protect human rights and advance non-discrimination.
- Respond swiftly and meaningfully to abuses of LGBT people abroad.
- Engage international organizations in the fight against LGBT discrimination.
- Report on progress. All agencies engaged abroad must prepare a report within 180 days and annually thereafter on their progress toward advancing these initiatives.

What are some social and political issues relevant to women and GLBT people in the U.S.?Weegy:
The Daughters of Bilitis (DOB), was the first lesbian rights organization in the U.S. [ It was formed in San Francisco, California in 1955 by four lesbian couples, including Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin who began meeting with other female couples to create a social alternative to lesbian bars, which were considered illegal and thus subject to raids and police harassment. The DOB followed the model of the homophile movement as developed by the Mattachine Society by encouraging its members to assimilate as much as possible into the prevailing heterosexual culture. The DOB advertised itself as "A Woman's Organization for the purpose of Promoting the Integration of the Homosexual into Society." ] Auto answered|Score 1|cham718|Points 607|
