Boys don’t cry is based on a true story about the life of Teena Brandon as she lives the life of a male. She changes her name to Brandon Teena and dates several women who did not know that she was biologically a female. He develops a reputation for being something of a ladies’ man. Eventually he falls in love with Lana and befriends Lana’s friends, who like him at first. When they find out that Brandon Teena is actually a female living the life of a male, they rape her and kill her. I do think this movie tells us about the society we live in because this actually happens in real life. People do killed because of their sexual orientation or that they want to live their lives as the opposite sex. I think that people should be able to live their lives the way they want no matter if people approve of it or not because everyone deserves to be happy. It really makes me mad that people still have to hide who they really are because they are scared that people will not like them, will stop being their friend, or will kill

Unformatted text preview: them. To be honest, this is my favorite movie because she died for being herself instead of being someone she was not. I am proud to say that I am a lesbian and I would rather for someone to kill me for being a lesbian than for someone to kill me for pretending to be straight. I think less people would live in fear if people on this earth, not saying it is everybody, would just accept that gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders, also known as the GLBT community, is on this earth and is not going away. I do believe that if they watched boys don’t cry they would see some of what we go through and somewhat of how we are discriminated against. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot more ways that the GLBT community are discriminated against such as: people saying that we do not believe in God or do not belong in church, we are denied jobs, we are denied places to live, and even stores and restaurants that we can go into all because of our sexual orientation....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
