L'Homophobie: Un comportement hétérosexuel contre nature by Ginette Pelland,Claude Charron

By Ginette Pelland,Claude Charron

À l’heure où le mariage entre conjoints de même sexe fait l’objet d’un projet de loi à l. a. Chambre des Communes et suscite les passions dans los angeles classe politique autant que dans l. a. inhabitants canadienne, ce livre tombe à element nommé pour éclairer les consciences.

Avec cet essai, Ginette Pelland retrace judicieusement le chemin parcouru et, surtout, identifie celui qu’il nous reste à faire collectivement pour aspirer à une société plus juste.

Ce livre brosse premièrement le tableau actuel de los angeles lutte contre l'homophobie dans notre société. L'évolution du droit et los angeles structure de groupes de défense des gais et lesbiennes ont entraîné l. a. mise en position de mesures éducatives, sociales et politiques dans le yet de faire cesser los angeles discrimination dont les personnes homosexuelles sont victimes. Beaucoup de travail reste cependant à accomplir dans le sens de l'ouverture des mentalités sur cette query.

L'homophobie est une forme de discrimination fondée sur des préjugés qui ont toujours european cours dans l'histoire occidentale. Ces préjugés partent d'aussi loin que los angeles Grèce ancienne et ils sont inscrits profondément dans l. a. mentalité religieuse judéo-chrétienne. los angeles Bible ouvre l. a. voie aux cruautés que l'Occident continuera par los angeles suite de réserver aux personnes homosexuelles. Le fondamentalisme religieux de l'Église médiévale s'en inspirera pour condamner les homosexuel(le)s au bûcher. L'avènement de los angeles pensée scientifique et de l'État de droit ne réussira pas à faire cesser los angeles condamnation et los angeles persécution de ces personnes. C'est ainsi que les homosexuel(le)s passeront du bûcher à los angeles criminal et à l'asile, leur statut de pécheurs contre Dieu et los angeles faith se transformant progressivement en celui de fauteurs de difficulty social, d’individus hors normes, de pervers et de malades mentaux.

C'est ce qu'il faut défaire pour dénoncer et démasquer l. a. profonde injustice de l'homophobie. L'orientation homosexuelle d'une personne ne justifie en rien son traitement social au titre d'être inférieur aux autres, réputé coupable et anormal en raison même de sa différence sexuelle.
