People of the LGBT community are often raised with severe social and mental disorders. Depending on the area, this is almost always the case. These disorders brought on by severe amounts of abuse and alienation, help solidify the self-image for the child, that LGBT people are "sick" or that they are "the death knell of this country." (youtube.com). Is this fear and abuse from the general public caused by society 's infatuation with sex? Is it that feminine behavior is considered weak and relating to sexism against women,
