Interplay between Sexism, Homophobia and Racism

Neutral classification vs. discrimination:

Neutral classification: Classification based on one’s achievement (such as talents, motivations, and competence)

Discrimination: Based on one’s ascribed status (such as race, gender and ethnic backgrounds)

“We group” vs. “the others”:

By valuing the characteristics and lifestyles of certain individuals or groups and devaluing those of others, society constructs some of its members as “other”. These “others” are understood to be less deserving, less intelligent, even less human.
