More Definitions of Gay

Gay means a sexual orientation to describe individuals who are emotionally or physically attracted to someone of the same gender. Gay is sometimes an umbrella term for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Gay was a code that was not a known technical term back then, or it was something that when mentioned connoted illegal and immoral activity. The war saw many men being shipped off to fight and women being sent in hordes to work in factories to produce supplies for the war, creating sex-segregated areas. This put both men and women in the same situation where they could experiment and act on desires they may have suppressed before. According to D' Xxxxxx (1992), many experienced sexual relations with members of the same-sex. He includes the example of Xxxx Xxx, a woman who left her farming community to live in a female boardinghouse. She met many lesbians, hung out with them and eventually came out during the war. And she was not the only one (D' Xxxxxx 1992). By the time World War II ended, there was a big change in the way sex was handled and talked about; “youth were enjoying greater autonomy in sexual matters.” (D' Xxxxxx 1992:65) Around then, the psychiatry community had moved from diagnosing homosexuality as a crime and sin to a condition and mental sickness (Xxxxxx 2006). But Xxxxxx Xxxxxx’x research, “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male,” published in 1948, countered this and argued that a majority of Americans were “in-between” on the scale of being attracted to only the opposite sex and being attracted to only the same sex (Xxxxxx, Xxxxxxx and Xxxxxx 1948). A copy of his findings were published as an essay in Xxxxx Xxxxxx and Xxxxx Xxxx’s (2006) collection of essays called “American Queer; Now and Then.” In his conclusion, Xxxxxx (1948) states: Homosexuality in the human male is much more frequent than is ordinarily realized. In the youngest unmarried group, more than a quarter (27.3%) of the males have some homosexual activity to the point of orgasm. The incidence among these single males rise in successive age groups until it reaches a maximum of 38.7 per cent between 30 and 40 years of age. (P. 14) Xxxxxx’x (1948) research shocked the field of sexology. Not only did this change all previous conventional ideas of sexual activity among the population but it also held that there was no so-called “species” of homosexuals that were not part of normal society (Xxxxxx 2006). Eventually, much after the research and the start of the LGBT rights movement, in 1973 the American Psychiatric Association announced that “‘homosexuality … by itself does not constitute a mental disorder’” (Xxxxxx 2006:232) That did not stop reports of suspicion and intense scrutiny of...
