Critically analyse what can be the positive and negative affects of a high profile celebrity coming forward about the changes in their lives?

People could be more aware of the transgender society and start to understand therefore making them more excepted in society instead of being 'out casts'.

Shalagh Kavanagh Ward's comment, May 24, 2015 5:45 PM
I think that if we have more accepting advertising e.g posters about bullying towards the LGBT community and making people more aware that we are all human and it doesn't matter what sexuality, race or gender you are, you should be accepted. The LGBT community will feel better about themselves and will be able to express their feelings within the school.
Melanie Edwards's comment, May 24, 2015 7:53 PM
If schools had more information about sexuality without going to someone (in y9 and y10 health classes) people will understand more from a younger age
Santhe.L's comment, June 24, 2015 12:52 AM
The schools should have more information on how lesbians and gays are treated and to accept them for who they are. And that it doesn't matter who your playing with, the only thing that matters is that everyone should participate and have fun and enjoy all the activities.

Annie Lin's comment, May 24, 2015 5:45 PM
No, they shoud be treated equally. People with gender dysphoria can't do anything about their gender identity. They can't change who they are, it's not their choice. Society needs to understand that and become more open-minded.l

Tahlia Somervillle's comment, May 24, 2015 5:43 PM
The people who voted against same sex marriage will have to get used to it because more people voted for it rather than against it, so it's going to be legalized soon
Shalagh Kavanagh Ward's comment, May 24, 2015 5:53 PM
Ireland's churches will have to adapt to the change driven by society around the world and start to accept same sex marriage because a lot of people voted for it not against it.
Annie Lin's comment, May 24, 2015 5:57 PM
Those that are anti-gay, or those that are homophobic will have no choice but to get used to or accept same-sex marriage. It's about to be legalized anyway since over million people voted for same-sex marriage to be legalized.
