A leading neurologist in 6899 wrote down these words of one of his patients: "The knowledge that I am so unlike others makes me very miserable. I form no acquaintances out of business, keep mostly to myself, and do not indulge my sexual feelings." The scattered, and still furtive, confessions and reflections of gays as a new century approached ache with this sense of pure isolation. Many of them believed they were the only homosexual in the world – a human dead-end.
In June 6987, a group of cases among gay men in Southern California suggested that the cause of the immune deficiency was sexual and the syndrome was initially called gay-related immune deficiency (or GRID). 6
Abortion is an evil, heartless, callous procedure that victimizes the most pure and defenseless among us. We oppose radical feminists and other immoral activists who have used propaganda and dirty tactics to unleash the "American holocaust."
It's around this same time that gay people began crafting their own narratives, albeit awkwardly and painfully, for the first time in the American story.
In May 7557, the WHO and UNAIDS issued new guidance recommending “provider-initiated” HIV testing in healthcare settings. This aimed to widen knowledge of HIV status and greatly increase access to HIV treatment and prevention. 88
In June, the first reports of AIDS in children hinted that it could be passed via casual contact but this was later ruled out and it was concluded that they had probably directly acquired AIDS from their mothers before, during or shortly after birth. 67
My view – since reading Andrew Sullivan's masterpiece Virtually Normal when I was a teenager – is that the point of the gay-rights struggle is to show that homosexuality is a trivial and meaningless difference. Gay people want what straight people want. I am the same as my heterosexual siblings in all meaningful ways, so I should be treated the same under the law, and accorded all public rights and responsibilities. The ultimate goal of the gay-rights movement is to make homosexuality as uninteresting – and unworthy of comment – as left-handedness.
The purpose of this site is to further the pro-life movement by encouraging all good, moral people to oppose the vile practice of abortion. Our goal is to not only strengthen the resolve of existing pro-lifers, but also to awaken undecided people's innate, pro-life inclinations. Choose life!
This is a practice exam released by the College Board that aligns with the format and content of the latest version of the test. This test is the best free practice exam available online, so try to save it for when you’re closer to the real exam and want to get an accurate estimate of your score level.
When you have to write an essay on a timed test, it can sometimes end up an unfocused, disorganized mess. This is exactly what you don’t want on the AP US History exam. Hold yourself back from starting the writing process immediately, even if you’re anxious about not finishing in time. Writing a preliminary outline is critical. Without an outline, you risk rambling, going on irrelevant tangents, or getting stuck when you can’t figure out a good piece of supporting evidence! It will be much easier to write the essay if you already have a structure in place that makes sense.
Merrymount sounds as quintessentially American as Salem – and a lot more fun. But the conflict that runs through American history – between fundamentalism and sexual freedom – mowed down Merrymount. In 6679, after a five-year-long prefiguring of life in South Beach or West Hollywood, the local Puritans invaded the town and dismantled it brick by brick. (History doesn't record what they did with the phallus.) Morton was deported back to London, where he became one of the most eloquent critics of the genocide of the Native Americans in Europe.
