How Labeling Has Caused People to Get Judged:
The race/ sexuality a person does not define them as a person
These labels are not "born" dangerous but are made hurtful in the extent of the characteristics that come along with it
An experiment was done by lining people up and showing how no one has the exact same skin color so there should not be categorization

How Technology Has Changed the Way People Interact
Online Dating
U.S laws
State legislatures, voters and the courts have made huge changes over the past two decades in determining the laws for same-sex marriage
Thirty-six states have legalized same-sex marriage
Other Countries
Eighteen countries allow freedom to marry someone of a same sex
In Australia, when couples including gay/lesbians stay together for more than two years, they achieve "De Facto" which protects them in their marriage
How Society Has Changed its Acceptance Toward Gay/Lesbian Couples
