It was great reading your discussion as it contains a lot of insight about sexual orientation. It shades light to the much-heated debate going on about whether some sexual orientations such as homosexuality are because of nature or are nurtured. Richard Pillard, a medical professor speaks strongly about the genetic and biological connection in influencing sexual orientation. Although patterns are difficult to note, there are slight chances that homosexuality happens by chance in a family; where one is gay, there is a high possibility others exit in the same family (Cornuelle, 2010). He confirms that identical twins are more likely to have a similar sexual orientation. However, he demystifies the relations existing between the environment and sexual orientation, and I agree. If errors in the process of sexual identification occur between three to five years of age, the individuals being questioned about their environments then are probably 20 to 30 years of age. Most recalls would be biased. If they are to say their mother was overprotective, what is to prove she really was?

I completely agree with the way you have highlighted the cultural and biological aspects that need to be understood when caring for young adults and adolescents. Considering your example, Paul Wood (2012) working in the North-Hampshire Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology agrees that religion and culture are inevitably woven to sexuality hence, the concept of ‘doubly hidden’. For so many years, discrimination against LGBT groups has been stereotypical. Now that they realize these individuals do not perform poorly at places of work and are generally good people, attitudes are beginning to change. Biologically, the answer lies in the limbic system of the brain stimulated by emotional responses majorly and social peers, it is why these individuals seek pleasure in risky ways (Wood, 2012).

Your post is a very interesting piece to read. It generally takes me back to my childhood days of “pink girls and blue boys’ girls for dolls and toy cars for boys. In a socially construed manner, girls would dress and act in a certain way- dressing in more bright colors make you a girl. However, unlike other girls I never liked Disney princess movies and disregarded dolls; one could call me defiant from a young age. Despite my preference for action movies, I find myself picking out white and pink sets of clothing. Also biologically, it has been found that most homosexual men have older brothers. Women develop Y-linked factor antibodies that hinder male development and disturb the brain structures responsible for sexual orientation (Roselli, 2018). This response is increased with each gestation.

Hello Sarah, your post talks of cultural competency and I agree with you that the only way one can understand how an individual is influenced by their culture is by first understanding that your own culture has had. One common action by therapists is appearance-based-judgment. Without physical disability, many presume able-bodiedness. Therefore it is important to consider ‘invisible disability’. These are conditions not easily recognized or acknowledged. Women are most prone to these just like the Panelist you have chosen (Nathan, Enns & Williams, 2013). They believe such disclosure would attract unwanted sympathy or pity. Recognizing these prevents ‘negative bias’.

Concerning Ms. Deroche, I also encountered a similar situation. In one case of a female who had a different physical appearance, she was thought to be slow mentally. People would get in her face to say something as if to say she could be deaf. I also found the ignorance of the individual looking for housing in government structures to be amusing. The way counselors should feel free to ask their clients about their race, sexuality or gender; is the same way, we should listen and accommodate their situations to better empathize and understand their situations (Wilson, 2016).

You explaining Ms. Park’s situation and confirming it in the video reminded me of how less visible diverse status even with age poses various challenges. Buckman Lindsey is a Lesbian psychologist who said that most individuals will jump straight to viewing one as a heterosexual (Abrams, 2018). They would even share things they say they would not if they got the slightest idea you were different. I completely agree with your approach to having open discussions with the client about issues in identity as well as diversity. I also experienced what you did when working with older counselors in a hospital. Because you are considered young, you are not experienced enough. Transparent talks help prevent biasness from interfering with the providence of quality healthcare.
