TĐH: Gender is becoming increasingly confusing, unnatural, standardless and meaningless. In New Jersey (USA) parents now can mark in the newborn baby paperwork for birth certificate one of three choices for gender: (1) male, (2) female, and (3) undetermined. “Undetermined” because the parents “don’t know the baby’s gender until the baby is grown up and determines his/her/its gender for him/her/itself.”
Bisexual people make up 52 percent of the lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) community, but in recent years, the words to describe the identity of someone who is attracted to more than one gender have become increasingly complex.
As the conversation around gender identity has expanded, so, too, has the language to describe both gender and sexuality as well as the complex interaction of these varying, often fluid identities. This includes new words that describe sexual attraction to more than one gender, including Tiếp tục đọc “Why Is “Bisexual” Such A Charged Word In 2019?”→

*Để tránh nhầm lẫn, trong bài dưới đây từ Gender được dịch là Giới và từ Sex là Giới tính
Khi hai từ có cùng một nghĩa, chúng ta gọi chúng là từ đồng nghĩa. Khi hai từ có nghĩa khác nhau nhưng lại được sử dụng thay thế cho nhau, thì ta cần tìm hiểu về ý nghĩa thực của những từ đó.
Lấy ví dụ về hai từ Giới – Gender và Giới tính – Sex. Trong khi nhiều người thường dùng hai từ này thay thế cho nhau, nhưng ý nghĩa và cách sử dụng của hai từ lại khác biệt đáng kể và do đó là rất khác nhau. Bởi vì chúng ta thường nói về con người khi sử dụng những thuật ngữ này, vậy nên điều cốt yếu là chúng ta hiểu được nghĩa đúng của các từ khi dùng để tôn trọng người mà ta nói đến
When two words have the same meaning, we call them synonyms. When two words have different meanings but people use them interchangeably, we write articles about what those words actually mean.
Take gender and sex. While people substitute one for the other on the regular, their meaning and usage are significantly—and consequentially—different. Because we’re most often talking about human beings when we use these terms, it’s critical we get them straight. Give respect to get respect, right?
(CNN) When the tiny, oil-rich kingdom of Brunei first announced in 2013 that it would adopt strict Islamic laws, including death by stoning for gay sex, many in the country’s LGBT community considered fleeing.
But some stayed on, hoping that the law, which is set to be formally enacted on April 3, would never come to pass.
“It’s really scary,” says Khairul, a young gay man in Brunei who spoke to CNN over the phone.
TĐH: The clash of civil rights law prohibiting discrimination against LGBT on one hand and religious freedom to follow the Bible on the other hand is splitting America in halves and largely explains Trump’s rise to power with the support of the conservatives. The progressive left under Obama has pushed the issue to the degree of oppressing folks with religious beliefs, without carving out a religious exception for them, and thus created a cultural and legal war which is still in full throttle.

TAIPEI: Taiwan’s top court ruled in favour of gay marriage Wednesday (May 24), a landmark decision that paves the way for the island to become one of the first places in Asia to legalise same-sex unions.
Crowds of supporters cheered, hugged and wept as the court said current laws preventing the practice “violated” the constitution’s guarantees of freedom of marriage and equality. It gave the government two years to implement the ruling.
Momentum has been growing behind the push for equal marriage rights, with Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing-wen openly supporting the campaign.
But there has also been anger among conservative groups, who have staged mass rallies against any change in the law.
The constitutional court said if parliament does not make the change within two years, same-sex couples could register to marry regardless, based on its interpretation.
Currently Taiwan’s Civil Code stipulates an agreement to marry can only be made between a man and a woman.
“The current provisions of the marriage chapter do not allow two persons of the same sex to create a permanent union of an intimate and exclusive nature for the committed purpose of managing a life together. This is obviously a gross legislative flaw,” the court said in a statement. Tiếp tục đọc “Taiwan top court rules in favour of gay marriage”→
