Lesbianism and Drag Culture: Defined Culturally

            Very seldom is there comparison and research on both lesbianism and drag culture. Choosing to research these topics presented a topic that is interesting and not widely discussed in a cultural perspective. In this paper, the two groups will be divided, yet combined to show the comparisons as they both belong to the LBGTQ community. Women are some of the most important beings within the world and society. They are responsible for procreation, they constantly deal with comparison between men and they are often subjugated to conforming to what society wants them to be. So when women are looked in reference to sexuality and their gender preferences, it is very rare that they are accepted as homosexual because society believes that their only responsibility is to procreate and the only way to achieve that is through heterosexual relations. Though times and ideals have changed majorly, in some cultures it is still a major controversy. So to gain a better understanding of the homosexual communities and the acceptance in other cultures, it was imperative to have a clear understanding of how it operated amongst societies in the United States. Homosexuality was not always accepted and in the US and there were many decades that went by without people being able to express and correctly identify their sexual preferences. Since the 1800's, psychiatrists and psychologists have concluded that homosexuality is a mental disorder. They have believed misguided upbringing and their social environments bring it about. For instance, it was believed that if the child was lacking a male - figure in the home, he would most likely be gay. Or that child abuse can lead to lesbianism when the special needs of a little girl are denied, ignored, or exploited and the future womanhood of the child is in risk. However, inconsistencies in the research subjects' abuse records ruled these theories out. And if this were the case, then why is homosexuality present in different cultures? This research will specifically focus on the sexual identity of lesbianism and how it is dealt with in other cultures globally.
