A World Full of Uniqueness

Gender discrimination, nonetheless, is evident everywhere around the world; whether it be the most liberated country there is, there will always be people opposing other people. In their defense though, as a species, we were made to be superficial.

Gender discrimination, nonetheless, is evident everywhere around the world; whether it be the most liberated country there is, there will always be people opposing other people. In their defense though, as a species, we were made to be superficial. It is one of our evolutionary defense mechanisms that enable us to decide whether something or rather someone, might be harmful or beneficial. But to think that a bunch of well-rounded people from our generation, a generation full of eye-opening thoughts and open minds, still carry the thought that a particular gender is superior to others, or people from the Third-Sex should not exist (or be isolated from the society), that’s a bit frightening.

We Filipinos, being from a highly religious Catholic country, are indifferent to the religious upbringing. It is just… natural to us in a sense. Because of this, the idea of patriarchy and fear of homosexual relationships tend to withhold us from being liberated and free.  In retrospect, it makes the idea of discrimination a bit normal to us. Just like in other parts of the world, the idea seems to be opposed due to heavy religious beliefs. On the contrary, considering that our generation seems to welcome that idea of gender equality (or just the plain idea of opposing any kind of discrimination), it serves as a vivid light in a pitch-black tunnel: full of hope and potential, but at the same time, the light must glow even brighter before the emptiness swallows it whole. Many people have different sides on the issue, and this is our side.

Discrimination is a chaotic game of Russian Roulette. It’s all fun and games until the unsuspecting person fires the only bullet in the gun. We tend to humor ourselves with the idea of someone being gay, but in reality, there are a bunch of people out there who are afraid to come out because of the embarrassment (or pity, in other cases); Come to think of it, just the idea of being embarrassed because of coming out, that’s one of the main roots of homophobia. There are a lot of people out there that still think that men are superior to women; thinking that women are your average run-of-the-mill 1950-esque housewives that have the main purpose of being servants to their dominant husbands. There are a lot of people out there that think that homosexual couples influence hatred. There are a lot of people out there, feeling pity to themselves because other people think that it is disgusting to not feel complete on the inside. There are a lot of aged people out there that want to support their families, being end up disappointed because no company would hire them due to their age. There are a lot of people out there that are laughed at because of the color of their skin, the shape of their nose, the size of their eyes, or just because of the race/ethnicity they were brought from. This kind of discrimination (or perhaps any kind of discrimination), must be STOPPED.

We mean no harm to any religion or their beliefs, but that we are pointing out is the fact that everyone can coexist in a world full of love; after all, one of the main purposes of religion is the reassurance that everyone is being loved. One’s belief cannot undermine the feeling of hatred, and thus love should prevail to hatred imposed not just to LQBTQ+ people, people of different races,  suppressed women and people with disabilities, but to EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US. True, we may still feel like we are living in a box. True, some stereotypes still exist. But that doesn’t mean that it is all true to every person. The unlikable trait that we all have is that we always judge a person on the outside, rather than judging by the personality and opinions. That is the common flaw of all of us. A single hamartia. We side on what we think is right without even double thinking to whether it is viable. We treat everyone differently based on our impression. We always come up being biased to something. If you really think about it, we are all made equal; it is just our perception and expectation that divides us into a jumbled mess that we are.

We can live in perfect harmony if we have the urge to try. Seeing the various Pride march and Women’s march nowadays, we can safely say that we are steps closer to reaching our ultimate goal of peace and harmony in a world full of love. In a world that you can love anyone without being judged. In a world that you can be whatever you want to be. In the end what truly matters is that we respect everyone. It’s better to live in a world where you can proudly shout out to the world of your sexuality without being judged. It’s better to live in a world wherein women are respected and appreciated as much as men do in whatever field. It’s better to live in a world where you can freely show the world of whoever you are on the inside. It’s better to live in a world wherein people’s competencies are measured by their skills, and not be their age. It’s better to live in a world wherein no stereotypes can be used against you; that no one can judge and look at you menacingly because of the color of your skin. It may be a long way to go, but we are sure that the future generations will be filled with love, respect, and kindness – so let us now start opening our eyes to the world. Respect, love and understand everyone because it does not only benefit you and the society, but it also benefits the humanity as a whole.

  1. This social movement is very important in the society especially among the usual discriminated people. In our society, many people from the Third- sex are intensively experiencing the discrimination of the society. They are feeling outcast most of the time. Some gays such as the crossed-dresser cannot get a job. African Americans are not welcome in some countries. Women cannot go to school and cannot express themselves. We see that our society act as a barrier for an individual’s progression.
    So, with this social movement, we may lessen or even stop discrimination in our society. With this, we may establish a new era where people live in harmony and equality. No more gender and race discrimination. No matter what you are, no matter who you are, you can fit in the society where you belong and be able to progress without boundaries. This is the life that every people experiencing discrimination is craving for, can’t we give it them?

  2. Discrimination in these day and age is still enduring and I think has aggravated as people are minimizing the worth of their fellowmen not just on their races and physical appearances but also on their beliefs and even their degree programs. As a soon to be degree holder of Marketing Management, I myself have experienced discrimination too due to the people who see my degree program as worthless and as to its result, it discouraged me. People in our country have to stop this wrongdoing as there could be more victims who might be disheartened about their own endeavors and worse, to their selves which can lead to repercussions. If we truly want peace and harmony in our nation, it must start within ourselves first and not in discriminating other people just to seek for attention and humor. I firmly believes that being happy with other people’s happiness is just a piece of cake if you would wholeheartedly respect it and through it, we can completely avoid hatred among each other which our country needs.

    If Jose Rizal were alive today, I think that he would uphold this advocacy as he himself had also experienced racial discrimination way back in his time. He did not support the belittling of Spaniards against Filipinos and perhaps even today, as the unjust treatment of people on different races, dispositions, and beliefs still exists and evolved, he would still oppose it. Rizal did not want the Filipino people to be disharmonized and would still not want it up until now. He fought for unity and peace among his countrymen all throughout his life, thus this advocacy would be in no doubt supported by Rizal. Lastly, he expressed his full determination by using his intellect and skills to prove that our conquerors’ viewpoint towards Filipino people was wrong which shows beyond doubt that Dr. Jose Rizal was truly an anti-discrimination.

  3. Discrimination nowadays is still enduring and I think has aggravated as people are not just minimizing the worth of their fellowmen not just on their physical appearances, races, and characteristics but also on their degree programs. As a soon to be degree holder of Marketing Management, I myself has experienced discrimination too as some people see my degree program as worthless which completely discouraged me. People must stop this wrongdoing because there might be victims who would be disheartened about their own endeavors and worse, to their selves which can lead to repercussions. If we truly want peace and harmony, it must start within ourselves and not in discriminating other people just to seek for attention and humor. I firmly believe that being happy with other people’s happiness is a piece of cake if you would wholeheartedly accept it,hence we can avoid hatred among each other which our country needs.

    If Dr. Jose Rizal were alive in these day and age, he would uphold this advocacy as he also experienced racial discrimination during his time. He did not support the belittling of Spaniards among Filipino people and perhaps today, where the unjust treatment to people with different races, dispositions, and beliefs still exists and evolved, he would still oppose it. He did not want his fellowmen to become disharmonized way back in the past and would still not want it even in the present world. He fought for the peace and harmony of the Filipino people all throughout his life, thus it is with no doubt that Dr. Jose Rizal would support this advocacy. Lastly, Rizal expressed his full determination by using his intellect and showcasing his skills to prove that our conquerors’ viewpoint against Filipinos was wrong and it just shows beyond doubt that our national hero is truly an anti-discrimination.

  4. This advocacy is needed because it will serve us as an opening eye in today’s generation wherein discrimination is very common in all society. It becomes natural to humans to discriminate people against each other whether it is intentional or not. And this kind of advocacy will provide help to promote that racism has no place that everyone are perfectly beautiful of who and what they are. So, let’s stop thinking differently to others just because they are overweight, poor, or having the different religious beliefs and the like. We must respect each other because we are all human beings and should be treated equal.
    Rizal will absolutely support this advocacy because during in his time they are being discriminated by the Spaniards because they have the will and power against Filipinos. And today, the experience of racism is nothing new among Filipinos and Jose Rizal will definitely find a way to fight against racism. He will go to protect every Filipino who is being discriminated by other country. He will fight for it, like how he fought for his country to Spanish colony. We must live together as brothers and sisters because no one is born hating another person.

  5. This movement is important because discriminations needs to stop. We are living in the 21st century and everything is done differently now. A woman can now do a mans work and a man can now do a womans work. We are living in a time where nothing is impossible. Same sex marriage is slowly being approved in a lot of countries and the LGBT’s are slowly showing us that just because you are different, does not mean you cant achieve anything.

    This social movement can help others understand that uniqueness is the new trend. We dont need to fit in anymore. We dont need to act like something we’re not. This is important in changing the societies views in the “status quo” and “stereotypes”. This is the time where nothing is impossible. And we need to use it to our advantage to show the world that its time to move on from the past. It’s time to be true, be you and succeed.

  6. This social advocacy is very important to our society because it is very widespread in our society; that we need to be more aware of the damage we do whenever we just “joke around” or tease people because of things that they cannot change. Teasing people and judging people we do not know is just ingrained in our culture but what we do not realize how unhealthy and damaging this is for both the judges and those who are judged. It tells the people who judge that it is okay to discriminate against certain people as long as “its a joke” and it tells the people who are judged that there is something fundamentally wrong with them and somehow its their fault for being different.

    Hopefully with this advocacy, we can develop a whole new sense of community where people are not judged but what they look like or what they like but how they treat their fellow human being. That being aware of the things we say and do will allow us to create a space of mutual respect.

  7. Living our world right now is like living in a world full of cameras. People take pictures and then they will judge it, as if they knew everything about that picture. Many people nowadays are easily get judged by others by their race, gender, physical appearance, etc. They feel like they are secluded and outcasted. This advocacy is what we all need right now, for us to be aware that we should appreciate, love, and respect everyone for who we are; no matter others are gay, black, fat, skinny, etc, that there is no boundaries between everybody.

    This advocacy can change everyone’s thought about discrimination, racism, etc. As people of this chaotic world, we should be the one to step up to pursue the change we want, and by trying to be more open minded and hearty to everybody, we might break the common stereotypes that casted through the boundaries in every gender, race, etc. We should be all equal because we are people and people help the other people.

  8. In this diverse world, we cannot deny the fact that we have differences; skin color, ethnicity, sexuality, religion,etc.
    We shouldn’t be fighting for our freedom to do anything because it is ours by right to be what we want to be, I’ve read many articles about discrimination for homosexuals and some of their belief anchored on the Holy Book that was supposed to bring us together; if that’s the case, you are telling me that the almighty God/s created life out of nowhere,and suddenly hates gays? If people can’t do as they please just because they are afraid that hell will be the home for their soul, they are bringing hell into reality. As a person with different belief when it comes to religious views, I often offend people by expressing my thoughts, but we have freedom of speech, and without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.

    Rizal died fighting the oppressors; he’ll definitely support this advocacy because this is the right that is rightfully ours, we must coexist in the same environment where everyone is different from another and being different won’t be a cause for other people who only follow norms to look down on them; it should be the reason why we should respect our differences. “Do not hate what you don’t understand.”

  9. Discrimination is one of the most problem in our society. People will discriminate. We treat everyone differently based on our impression. We always come up being biased to something. If you really think about it, we are all made equal; it is just our perception and expectation that divides us into a jumbled mess that we are.

    If Rizal will support this problem he will do everything to make peace of our country.
    Rizal will asure that the future generations will be filled with love, respect and kindness – so let us now start opening our eyes to the world. Respect, love and understand everyone because it does not only benefit you and the society, but it also benefits the humanity as a whole.

  10. Theres always a discrimination in this world. People will always say anything whether you do bad or good. Its just the mentality of the millenials it seems like theres always wrong for them you can never be who you wanted to be and thats wrong. You can be who you wanted to be its a free world afterall if we just unite and let the people do what they wanted to

  11. Filipinos are Judgemental that’s how it is,If you keep on discriminating people you won’t achieve your goals in life.If someone is being discriminated I’m going to tell this person that there’s nothing wrong if you are tall or small, light colored or dark colored skin the matter is how colorful your dreams are don’t get affected because they are dicriminating you let them say what they like to stand up because you know how to Respect And Love and you know how it feels like they don’t have a kind a heart like what you have.

  12. we tend to think of ourselves as victims when we think of racism.. that “whites” look down on us, etc… but i believe that the truth of the matter is that filipinos can be quite discriminatory as well… just look at how many Pinoys make fun of chinese or “bombay” people.
    last year i went to palawan and the DOT there tried to charge us 5X more when they realized there as an american with our group. when i complained, they agreed to charge the pinoys the regular rate but my american friend still had to pay more because she “made dollars naman eh”.
    we as filipinos, particularly in the higher /economic/social brackets also look down in a discriminatory way when it comes to less fortunate people.. or the poor.. even our househelp help!
    it is so very sad if not depressing to me!!!

  13. If you find yourself flicking through the television channels this season, you might
    stumble across a relatively new program called Joan of Arcadia. The show is about an
    average, non-religious teenager with whom God decides to strike up a friendship, manifesting
    himself and herself in persons as varied as a TV anchorman to a cafeteria lunch lady. The
    show’s creator, Barbara Hall, has given the writers a list of 10 commandments. The third
    dictum is “God can never identify one religion as being right.” Time writer James
    Poniewozik comments: “This is probably an impossible rule to follow – some people believe
    in a God who is quite particular about which religion is right, and by the fourth episode God
    alludes to having told Noah to build the Ark. But mostly Arcadia espouses the little ‘c’
    catholicism captured in its credits, which juxtapose images of the Dalai Lama, Nelson
    Mandela and Bob Dylan: as long as you believe there’s an answer blowin’ in the wind, you’re
    on the side of the angels.” (Time Magazine, November 3, 2003, page 48, James Poniewozik)

    Thumbing to the back page of the same magazine, one would come across an editorial
    essay entitled “The Religious Superiority Complex”, with the subtitle “It’s okay to think your
    God’s the greatest, but you don’t have to rub it in.” Journalist Michael Kinsley comments on
    U.S. Army Lieut. General William Boykin, a Christian, who made statements about the war in
    Iraq that described the enemy as Satan and the fight as related to Christianity. “As a devout
    believer, Boykin may wonder why it is impermissible to say that the God you believe in is
    superior to the God you don’t believe in. I wonder this same thing as a nonbeliever: Doesn’t
    one religion’s gospel logically preclude the others’? His basic point is that Christianity is
    right and Islam is wrong. Doesn’t the one imply the other? Pretending that my religion is no
    better than your religion may make for fewer religious wars, but it seems contrary to the very
    idea of religion.” (Time Magazine Editorial – November 3, 2003, page 64, Michael Kinsley)

  14. Every person is different. We all have different skin color, eyes, face, nose, height, weight, and every physical features of a person. All we need is to accept the fact that not everyone is like you. The way you think the way you eat, your beliefs, your traditions and many other. We all have this pride and ego that we cannot somehow accept the fact that we should love each and everyone with our differences, abilities, disabilities. All of us have our own way, have our own talent and have our own skills. it is love who we need to have love for our land love for our world. People have their own weaknesses and strengths we should help each and everyone. Each person has their own uniqueness.

    It is very important to have the gender equality,to treat everyone as a human being even if some people here in our country are member of LGBT community.

    LOVE SEES NO COLOUR BILL OF 2018

  21. We should not live in the world full of standards set by structures. This is the root of discrimination. Learn to appreciate that conformity does not always the right answer. It is okay not to be okay. Appreciate your weirdness cause you are unique as a person.

    – NATIONAL UNIVERSITY, FIN 144

  22. Jelou Kim C. Laporbida

    In reviewing LGBT rights in the Philippines, it was noted that the Philippines is signatory to many relevant
    international covenants promoting human rights, though LGBT rights are not always supported by the state.
    Same-sex activity is not criminalized and sexual orientation is mentioned in various laws. The most important issue in terms of law is considered the lack of an anti-discrimination bill. Numerous proposals have been made since the90s without success. Proposed bills in 2013 relate to establishing an LGBT desk in police stations and to allowingsame-sex couples to jointly own property. In the absence of national legislation, anti-discrimination ordinances atthe level of local government units and cities have been recently passed. Transgender people are not allowed tolegally change their identity, first name and sex (intersex people are allowed to do this). Bible is separated in State, people should know that so I could say that I totally agree with this article.

  23. No one has a right to discriminate because every individual has a right to choose what they wanted to be as individual and has there own voice to speak what is right for them. We don’t have the rights to judge someone because he or she is different. Everyone has there own flaws and imperfections and in the eyes of god we are one. Being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer are not bad as long as you’re not harming anyone. Like I said every person has there own choice.

  24. The three things that might make the world to a better place is people need to learn Respect, love and understand everyone. by this people can tolerate the imbalance of the society, the things that divide people to each other, because the divisions results in argument and misunderstanding of the society fighting for their perspectives and facts that make or feel their superiority but with this three things said in the article, the world will be at peace, understanding everyone, respecting their perspectives and views specially loving them from who really they are. For me the article was more of Ideal Self.

  25. The 3 things that the world needs according to the article is Love, respect and Understanding.
    Yes we need these 3 things to stop discrimination and hatred, we need to respect everyone, your age, color, gender doesn’t define you as a person on what you really are.

    this article is depicts the Ideal Self.
    some of us are afraid to show what they are, they afraid to tell people what they feel inside, some people wants the ideal self on what is the demand of the society but, they didn’t make it because some of them were afraid, some of them are disappointed.

  26. The three things that could/may make the world a little better according to the article are respect, love, and understanding. Yes, we definitely need these things. That’s why I also use these things. By simply acting upon these things, one can experience the essence of being a human being. Yes, the essence of being a thinking and rational human being. being unnecessarily indifferent about the uniqueness of a human being is being a fool. Making an unnecessary divide among people is exactly why our world today and of the past is in chaos. So why not start making a change in this chaotic world instead? For me this article is more of a “Ideal Self”

  27. Indeed, the world needs love, respect and understanding. It is the three focal points to a better world. With compassion in each hearts, people can see the need of love instead of hatred. With respect, anyone will seek acceptance instead of isolation. And with understanding, humans will see a better impression of a person avoiding any stereotypes it may cause.

    The article speaks of an ideal-self since there are few characteristics the author is rooting to see in a person. An ideal self that can change itself and change the world in a long run.

  28. Three things that the world needs would probably respect, understanding and appreciation. People need to respect each others choice to boost their self esteem. People need to understand each other in order for them to grow in a much better place. And lastly, people need to appreciate each other’s idea and opinions for them to feel that they are also being loved.

    The article for now seems to be a real self. Because we millennial people tend to understand each others races, color, ethnicity and gender. So if we easily understand them it will be easier for us to start appreciating each other.

  29. The three things the world needs according to the article are the understanding respect, and love. For these are the keys to cure the imperfections of the society. As an individual, Yes these are the ingredients that I use to make the world a better place because by means of understanding others, it can further help to build a strong foundation and a sense of trust and cooperation as it greatly helps the society, respect to the decisions and chosen paths of each individual by means of accepting them of who and what they are to the society and love as it conquers all and it is the root of having a good harmony to have peace in the world we live. However, the article depicts the “Ideal Self” whereby it described the need for perfection that drives to mold something or someone into an idealism in the society. it tells something that should or should not do to attain a perfect society but then in reality there is no such thing as perfect as society. it never has been and never will be. There is always be chaos, calamities, and tragedies. So the only thing we can do is to accept the reality of having the imperfect society.

  30. We need Love m, Respect, Kindness and Gender equality, We need all of this to live in a better plave, we just need to use our own selves and self realization because we know ourselves that we will choose the good thing and aware that we are doing a good thing for the benefit of all of us. – Eloisa Cabral NUR 182

  31. In this diverse world, we cannot deny the fact that we are all born with more gifts and talents than other people knew about us. Living a life in this generation somehow revolves around fighting for your freedom or to prove your worth/existence. People nowadays are fond of speaking rather than listening. People nowadays became racists. It is funny to see that some of our fellow men are the ones who always drag another Filipino way down to success. People nowadays wants to be loved and understood. We want the spotlight. We love to hear compliments and we always seek for more. But what if people opened themselves to love, to understand and compliment other people? To let everyone, have the spotlight and be heard? That’s the perfect representation of the world that God has created for all of us. A world where love, respect, and acceptance exists. Our perceptions and expectations divides us to a world where everyone is accepted and loved. Every person is different. God created us to be different from one another because our uniqueness will give colors to the world.

    We should not live in a world full of standards. Let us accept and embrace each other’s flaws, imperfection and the fact that in the eyes of God we are one.
    Let us be honest to ourselves that in some point of our lives we judged someone. But the world needs love, respect and understanding. We need to understand and appreciate each other’s personality, uniqueness and imperfections for us to grow in much better place. Let us all be a catalyst for change. Let us now start open our eyes to the world full of colors.

  32. As a living in a country that part of Global south also known as Developing world which is the majority of countries are third world and our country is part of it as you grow older you will feel frustration in the world you are living in because many of us are a victim of poverty and you will realize how life is so unfair.

    The idea of global divide is as good as discrimination because there is a big chance that any 1st world country are underestimating what you can do and as a person. The world you are living in is reflecting on yourself that’s how it works.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from countries from Global South. Because of culture many are opposing LGBTQ especially the religous country like for here in the philippines being gay here means you are incapabale what men can do physically. Other cases are because of the widespread of AIDS in the global south such as Asia and Africa majority of homosexual are infected that’s why people are closing the door for acceptance and has different approach of LGBT compare to global north which is majority of first world country is located there.

  33. ” It is not our differences that divides us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences. ” – Audre Lorde

    Cultural diversity has been present in our society during ancient times and even up to now. It is something that we can’t control nor stop for it will continue to exist no matter what. Diversity is necessary in our lives and should never be an issue. I see nothing wrong with diversity except for the fact that some people or group of people are not willing enough to embrace and respect this cultural diversity. There are a lot of factors that contributes to the diversity of our culture and sometimes this factors becomes a barrier to different countries. This occurs primarily between developed and developing countries, and honestly this fact sucks because our country belongs to those developing countries that are considered ” under dog”.

    A very good example to this issue is the struggle of our Philippine team athletes in competing internationally because we are considered meek compared to other countries. Well physically we are not as tall as those of the other countries but I do believe that our grit and determination is far greater than those taller players. I think that aside from this, the fact that we are just a developing country ( and by developing, I mean really really developing ) contributes to us being bullied inside and outside the court. Our athletes are being estimated not just because of their skills but also for the fact that our country ( holistically) is nothing compared to countries like China. We like to live in the shadow of other countries and this gives us the impression of being meek and lanky compared to other countries whose power screams so much. I firmly believe that this is being manifested and reflected in our international competitions in the field of sports.

    This idea of global divide can be not as good as discrimination. It will really depend upon how we handle this global divide. If America, China, Russia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and other developed countries will consider those developing countries (such as our country) as a laughingstock because of our culture, tradition, beliefs, and principle as a country, then yes this global divide can be as good as discrimination which is really a not so good things. On the other hand, if we will all embrace our differences and diversity as a country, then I believe this global divide will not be an issue at all. But sadly there are still countries that are not willing enough to accept these differences and diversity.

    An example to this is the issue between the Global North and Global South concerning the LGBTQ+. The countries that belongs to the Global North are strictly condemning the the the LGBTQ+ community in the countries in the Global South There has been several reports regarding LGBTQ+ community being the target of shooting of those from the Global orth. This is not just horrifying but saddening as well. We can not blame other countries of condemning the LGBTQ+ community for it is their belief and stand and we must respect that. It is just heartbreaking that this issue reaches to the extent of killing people whose beliefs are far different from the others. I think that the factor that might contribute to this issue is on how our geography shapes our culture and tradition. We have different beliefs and stand in lives and for this to be respected by others we must respect theirs as well. Killing should never be an option.

  34. Global divide describes global disparities, primarily between developed and developing countries. And the global divide that affected me is our education system because I think our country wants to improve like the other countries, that’s why the government added another two years in the secondary level which is called K-12. And as the first generation who stands as a trial in this new education system, I think it affected me because as I reached the tertiary level, all the subjects that I already taken is just repeated and it also affects my family expenses because my parents already saved money for the career I want to pursue in college but because of the additional years they need to save money again for my education.
    Global divide is as good as discrimination because the rich countries is separated from rich countries and I think separating the better from improving one is already an act of discrimination because instead of seeing and appreciating improvement from the poor countries that is included in the south, they are separating them from the more improved one than to help those countries.
    Discrimination is just a hobby nowadays, even the smallest thing is noticeable in the eyes of judgemental people everywhere. But we all know that LGBTQ are already accepted by many because they are also part of the individuals that has contribute for the country they lived in. And so am I, maybe sometimes I’m still not use to see couples on the same gender who kiss and hold hands in public. But when I see the spark on their eyes, I can feel the love that they had for each other and by that I’m starting to understand their side and I also support them even in the small ways I know. Because they are also humans who has heart and feeling. Maybe they are different, but they are uniquely different. And they are perceived by many because LGBTQ is different from LGBT because the “q” stands for questioning which means these persons is not sure what their gender is that’s why we tried to understand and help them figured out who or what they really are.

  35. Being a part of the third world country and the south of the global divide plainly sucks. Living in a country governed by corrupt politicians, where poverty is sickening, worst traffic, very unstable standard of living, and not being able to move forward despite having all the resources, it sucks and deeply saddening to everyone who loves our country. Global Divide for me is a big discrimination, being categorized and segregated by means of economic lines, I think that it can be huge impact and factor in widening the gap between the developed and developing countries. The Global Divide leaves an impact to developing countries that to be developed, we must do what these rich countries do, and I think that it is entirely wrong, each country has its own strengths and weaknesses, and to be able to move forward it must be because of the unique capabilities that each nation have.

    I think that well developed countries or the north are more open to new ideas and changes unlike from the developing countries or the south, still believes on the same thing and hold onto the same culture. The LGBTQ community is more welcomed in the north yet it doesn’t mean that countries from the south is going the opposite path, the countries from the south despite strong beliefs are turning like the north, and that is just how it is. I’m don’t really agree with the LGBTQ community, I respect them and I’m not condemning them, but I do really hope that we won’t be the like the US or European nations. I want this Country to be developed at the same time maintains its value and culture.

    1. Global divide deals about social and economic inequality. Back when I was a kid, I have a very dark skin since I love swimming and going to the beach. I spent all day soaking and playing at the sun. I grew up in a family that has a very clear and white complexion, they all say that it runs in our blood. My uncle always teases me because of my skin color and always says that I don’t belong to our family because of my dark skin. My mother even tried to take me in a milk bath hoping that it would treat and lighten the skin of my body. At a very young age I have experienced discrimination, even on my relatives. We cannot change the fact the we live in a judgmental world, where society based your worth on looks, educational attainment, socioeconomic status, gender, sexuality, religion and etc., If you don’t match the society’s standards, you will feel outcast and inferior.
    2. Global Divide happens due to discrimination, it allows the society to build standards and norms of living. The country’s culture, institution and geography determines the status of our country’s economy. The North-South Global Divide give an effect on our nation’s economy. From the wars on Spratly island and increasing poverty in Africa, to the advanced technological abilities in Japan, all of these and more to come affect each country which separates us to uniting together to form a stable nation. There is a superiority in every country, we discriminate the capabilities of every nation.
    3. LGBTQ+ is perceived persecuting in Global South because they have a anti-LGBT law because most countries that belong to the Global South are religious countries and are very strict to imply the norms of their religion. Global trends to LGBT is the trending images posted through social media the displays brutal men torturing and humiliating gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. Most cases are killed by a rebellion and extremist groups, such as Islamic State or also known as ISIS. Let’s end this war and stop the violence against LGBTQ+. Together let us bring equality in this world instead of brutality.

  37. The global digital divide is a special case of the global divide, which can be understood when I talk about me. I am the girl who lived in Saudi Arabia and my relatives who lived all their lives in my mother country Eritrea and the difference between us. The global digital divide focuses on the fact that the Internet may develop unevenly in The world in Saudi Arabia There is a very developed technology and education. When I get the chance to talk to my relatives, they do not know the simplest technology I have used in my daily life and if they know it, their access is difficult. The Internet is so bad there computer and smart phones. Non-existent! I hope that they will have this life, which is their simplest human
    ‏rights
    I think that the Idea of global divide is somehow similar to discrimination It’s all for me considered as social inequality the research are distributed on the basis of religion , race , ethnicity , gender and age the economics of the world have developed and unevenly historically some parts of the world were left mired in poverty and diseases while others began to reduce property and diseases in a wholesale basis this was represented by a type of north south divide , which means that countries are divided to 2 parts pool or developing and the rich or developed countries so the inequality is found almost in every society is shaped by geographical location or citizenship status which I found it not fair because no one choose his or her place of birth and his society and his nationality
    I think that there is a strong relationship between a country religiosity and the pinion about homosexuality there is no acceptance of homosexuality in countries where religion is central of people lives , I think that every survey or study will show that middle east countries or Muslim countries will be the most against homosexuality , meddle east countries is considered as a global North countries next to Africa and developing Asia
    but even when the most of north countries follow Christianity And many of the church take the position that homosexuality sexual activity is a sinful
    some churches accepted homosexuality now perform same-sex weddings or blessings. Furthermore, many churches in the United Methodist Church in the US are choosing to officiate and bless same-sex marriage despite denomination-wide restrictions In addition, in the United States Conservative Judaism, Reform Judaism, and Reconstructionist Judaism now welcome LGBT worshippers and perform same-sex weddings.

  38. The global digital divide describes global disparities, primarily between developed and developing countries, in regards to access to computing and information resources such as the Internet and the opportunities derived from such access.
    It makes me feel so small knowing that my education is being oppressed oh that’s not right I think the best word is not advance? It’s infuriating knowing that the education you’re studying right now has an advance system but what you get is the developed countries oppressing tha information so that the developing countries won’t advance that fast, isn’t a waste of time? Striving for knowledge that is only so-so? Well it can’t be help you aren’t born with golden spoon so just accept, I guess?
    In my opinion the idea of global divide is that people in the world nowadays strive for money, more success and more money so they sell their advance information to countries who can afford it leaving the poor countries with so-so knowledge and their own instinct about things instead of sharing it with everyone, well who would share some knowledge that you work so hard for without getting anything in return? Well I’m sure I wouldn’t, you see? That’s how the world works money, money and more money simple right?
    I think the reason why the LGBTQ+ is perceived differently in countries belonging global north and global south is because mostly in global north is the developed countries which means they already have many groups inside their countries so having a group about new sexes is toleratable and the other reason is that they are not mostly consist of religious countries who ban same sex marriage unlike in the global south which consist of mostly religious countries.

  39. One good example of Global Divide is our knowledge. As a millenial, I am interested in an articles that are currently in trending. As I read every comments, most people were living in the developed countries and only few were in the developing countries. And for me, I was oppressed by those people in the developed countries. The knowledge they had was better than mine and after I commented, I realized that they were right. So for the people living in the developing you were always think twice and be prepared when someone oppress you. These developing countries oppressing the developed countries so that they won’t make it further and that’s hurt a lot for sure.

    Yes, the idea of Global Divide is as good as discrimination. For instances, it doesn’t matter what is the color of your skin, what is your gender, what you look like or what is your age. What matter is that what is your level compare to other people. If you think you were superior in terms of knowledge then your lucky, it is up to you whether you share your knowledge or let these people be at their level, since you were from a developed countries, you were already had an advantages from them. Moreover, being developed compare from the others and not being a stereotype was way better.

    The LBGTQ+ is being perceived differently from the belonging countries in the Global North and from countries from Global South due to the reason that most of the countries belonging from the North are the developed countries which means they already discussed the said issue. In result, it makes their countries to have many groups of people who may also have groups about the third sex. It is being tolerable to them. Lastly, only few of the countries belonging in the north consist of religious countries that particularly disagree to the idea of third sex while in the Global South most of their countries did not tolerate the said issue.

  40. I consider this experience as a global divide since I live in rural area where internet connection is very limited. I am from Laguna and our town is far from the commonly known cities like Calamba, Sta. Rosa, Biñan, and the likes. Since phone signal and internet connection has low signal level in our area, we cannot access to the internet every now and then. This shows a large gap in the use, knowledge, and access in the internet or technology with the other area. At some point, digital divide can be a form of discrimination. Because some will not be able to engage fully in social, economic or political life white others can. This may exclude certain groups who do not have an access to the Internet.
    I think that the Global North opposed LGBTQ+ because the rights and freedoms of LGBTQ+ citizens are strongly influenced by the prevailing cultural traditions and religious mores of people living in the region. While those living in the Global South believes that LGBTQ+ individuals should have the same rights as non-LGBTQ+ folks. 

  41. One of the example of Global Divide is Inequality across Societies, I felt something incomplete between our societies nowadays because they are are sometimes not cooperating with each other which sometimes resulted discrimination and racism.

    No, because they are somewhat similar with each other. Like people would discriminate others because they might think that you are not belong to the society. Or unless, you can’t contribute to the society because you might have not enough knowledge to prove yourself.

    Why? For me, I think because the Global South and Global North disagreed with the idea of LGBTQ+. They might think that God is the one who created a man and woman only to reproduce the race of being them only in our world. But, there are a lot of people in our world became a part of LGBTQ+ now, even though their country is against of that idea. Especially those LGBTQ+ members are most likely to experienced discrimination, experience intolerance, harassment, and some threats of violence.

Especially the LGBTQ+ members most likely to experience harassment, intolerance, dicrimination, and the threat of violence.

  43. First is that I was affected by global divide because the Philippines is a third world country, I think that it affects me because Countries from the First world are somewhat discriminating the Philippines because we are from the third world and they are treating us like we are under them. They always think that they are above us or they should be respected or look up to by us. That is what I feel.

    Well, I think that Global Divide and discrimination are somehow the same because both are dividing countries by Its skin color, nationality, race, economical standing, and etc. And I think that it is not good just because your country is rich does’nt mean that you can belittle other lower countries by yours.

    Well, i think that in the Global north countries are more liberated than the south and they are not that religious because many countries are against lgbt because they are religious. It is forsaken to be in a sex same relationshio and it should only be man to woman relationship. Well, Thats what divides the perception of the global north and global south countries. Religion is the global divide that divides the thoughts on the lgbtq+ group.

  44. Over the past years majority of us experience discrimination in every aspect of our daily lives. On our generation nowadays people tend to discriminate the 3rd sex since many of us think that it violates some religious beliefs yet some people acknowledge them as a normal people. Many countries tend accept the LGBTQ+ and they even have a Pride parade ?️‍? we do have a pride parade here in the philippines yet we can’t ignore those people who are always criticizing the LGBTQ+ community they also don’t allow same sex marriage. On the other hand, the 3rd sex tend to adopt some child or have done some scientific experiments just to provide their own childre. For me, i accept the LGBTQ+ with all of my heart since i am a included in their community since i am attracted to those people who are intelligent, in short i am a sapiosexual and for me people shouldn’t discriminate us since we are normal like them

  45. In this world full of criticism, having different ethnicity, religion, beliefs, gender preference, and physical appearance. Judgement is part of humans life, were are judged on what we do or as we are. It is somehow to test ones characteristic, in sectioning various categories. It’s like organizing, by dividing and collecting/grouping the same standards. But discrimination is somewhat different to that because I observed that discrimination is not having the fair treatment as others experience. I, Being a TVL-Home Economics student (in my senior high school). I had experienced being treated differently among others, some people may joke around that it is just an easy Track to take and that we’re not good in academics.
    In my opinion discrimination is not as good as global divide since discrimination makes a person discouraged and feel bad on themselves. Global Divide somehow divides people within a group. As a group, an individual won’t feel bad because he/she is within a group. And the differences between beliefs does not affect them that much since they are surrounded by people on the same beliefs or characteristics as they are/have. One best example of discrimination is the LGBTQ+ Community. I think that LGBTQ+ are treated differently due to their gender preferences by disowning their birth sexuality which makes them different. In some religious beliefs (such as Catholicism) does not agree with these preferences, and since the religion has a great impact to people, it reflects on how others treat the LGBTQ+ or somewhat maybe there are just some people who does not like to see or to be with a gay regardless on their religious beliefs. I agree with the author’s thought, acceptance and understanding is the key to avoid discrimination because every individual has their own uniqueness.

  46. The concept of “worlds” like the first and third is just humans labeling anything. No one is entitled to something just because they told us they are that. There is no divide between the two. All words are made up. LGBTQ people had enough. Let them be.

  47. One example of global divide that affects the society is the gender inequality. This refers to the prejudice and discrimination based on sex or gender. An example of this is the way women are treated differently from men such as when you’re a women, you should be conservative, or etc. but if you’re a men, you should be strong, and the expectation on work are much higher. In our today’s generation, it is important to be sensitive regarding the attitudes of both genders.

    On the other hand, global divide can also be a form of discrimination. Everyone should understand that whatever your gender might be, even if you are a men, a women, or a member of LGBTQ+ community, everyone needs to respect, to be treated fair, and to accept in our society.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from Global North to Global South. It is because, the acceptance of homosexuality is very extensive in countries where religion is less central in people’s live. These are also among the richest countries in the world. In contrast, in poorer countries with high levels of religiosity, few believe homosexuality should be accepted by society. But to make this short, we should accept a person no matter what gender they have. Let them live. Mind your own business.

  48. In our country, the global divide that is in our life or culture is that all the elders are always right and young ones are always wrong because they intend to think that they experience everything that we the young ones not. It affects me because there is a lot of ideas going through my mind that i cant tell or say to the elders because probably they will reject me or lecture me in what they’ve experienced. Global Divide and Discrimination are similar yet different i mean they have the same thought but differ in meaning because Global Divide is more legally than the word Discrimination. LGBTQ to be honest Im against to it but i am also human with same food to eat and same air to breathe so who iam to judge them. LGBTQ is most the most issue or topic that is involve in terms of discrimination because there are countries that in there culture being 3rd gender is prohibited because they believe that man is for woman.

  49. We all live in a world with diversity shown in our own culture and traditions, where we see people in all races or ethnicities that represents their own country and makes them atypical compared to other country. In this generation it has taught us that there are different kinds of beauty that we can see only if we open our eyes. Beauty that reflect one’s culture and nascency. Though its always easier said than done, this has also created a barrier with us all. Our disparity with one another seems to resurface leading us to isolate ourselves into a box that is full of unknown. One of the examples I can give is basically our norms and how it still retained to be just as traditional rather just accepting in any forms. Growing up to this country is not far from mediocre. The only thing that drives me nuts is on how women are always expected to be just women generally. This affects me in a way that I could not even put myself into a situation wherein I can be in charge or I can also do what others do. It has always been and supposed to be viewed as patriarchal rather than just equal. Our country has shown many aspects of that based on my personal experiences. The thing is we tend to more traditional rather than to mingle with the changes that is widely happening around the world and maybe that is the reason why we always stayed on the same position as what we were before instead of moving forward. This has what global divide brought us.

    For me I think global divide is not as far as discrimination. As we look at it on bigger picture, this two has brought nothing but isolation, disparity, and gap between us individuals. The idea of having globally divided is just as natural as discrimination, its like always putting yourself out there on a battlefield fighting for your freedom and worth as an individual. It seems like these days we only strive for being competent and how to outshine others that also gives us doubt at everything and wholeheartedly been taking a great toll on us not just simple individuals but also as a nation. Just like in the ?️‍? LGBTQ Community.

    When I always read and look to other countries, I always wonder why we are not as liberated to them. Compared to other country, we are not as liberated as to them. We are more like the conservative type and that is the very reason why I honestly applaud people who are not scared to come out to the closet show their selves to the world. I always find it brave, courageous, and very empowering knowing that the people in their country is just as understanding (like no other). With our country I always find it – tolerate rather than just accept. Is it because its engraved to our culture? Was it our norms? Or maybe its because we have always stayed traditional rather than just accepting and understanding. I have been and always will be a strong believer that living your truth is pivotal to each one of us. It may hard to live in the world full of judgments and criticism but its harder if we choose to not live for our truth. Maybe its time we should accept different kinds of beauty, regarding to race, gender, age, and social standings. Maybe its time for us to gather all the gravel and turn them into pearls or even gems and then maybe we’ll live into such amazing world.

  50. Religion is one of the example of global divide that affect us as an individual. There is a particular activity that is very common to us but unethical or unacceptable to the others because of religion.

    Most religions don’t accept LGBTQ+ community because they believe that becoming one of them is a sin from a bible. Religious people believe that being a third sex is a disease that can only treat using the words of wisdom from God.

    I can say that no matter who or what you are, as long as you believe with God, there is nothing to worry about. We must accept that their is no gender role, a woman can do what man can do and vice versa. Discrimination became more impactful since we are now advance through technology.

    Acceptance is the only key to set us free.

    We keep fighting for acceptance since day one, We are not supposed to beg for everyone’s respect because we deserve it, we are also human, a human with feelings, with emotions. God forgive, so do I. The battle against hate will never stop. Love wins!

  51. Yeah we know that some people are discrimination because of criticism they judge people by their physical appearance if you are different of them they will insult you and in the eye of others you are just a piece of trash, But even it happen to you all you need to do is accept because there is someone like you that you will become friend and it will accept all of you. Just be yourself.

  53. People are different and have different skills, abilities, personal work ethics and degrees of motivation. Examples of global divide are those where all of these things are ignored and instead people are grouped by various superficial characteristics and treated as a homogeneous group instead of an individual like anyone else.

    Global Divide is as good as discrimination because some groups have higher status and greater privilege than others. In this unequal social system, there is often unfair treatment directed against certain individuals or social groups. This is referred to as discrimination. Discrimination can be based on many different characteristics like age, gender, weight, ethnicity, religion, or even politics. For example, prejudice and discrimination based on race is called racism. Oftentimes, gender prejudice or discrimination is referred to as sexism. Discrimination is often the outcome of prejudice. Prejudice leads people to view certain individuals or groups as inferior.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from countries from Global South because societal attitudes toward homosexuality vary greatly in different cultures and different historical periods, as do attitudes toward sexual desire, activity and relationships in general. All cultures have their own values regarding appropriate and inappropriate sexuality; some sanction same-sex love and sexuality, while others may disapprove of such activities in part.

  54. Ynota, Jasper Kent L.
    INF – 182

    for me 2 of the biggest world divide that affects all of us is the type of lifestyle living in a poor and rich country, and also the same sex marriage. Literally Philippines is one of the poor countries or the 3rd world countries which is the developing countries, being frank people nowadays wants their life to be easy living in a rich community or country and they dont even want to be with the poor ones. I didn’t mean they dont want but all they want is just for for themselves to be more higher than the others and dont want to help the poor people that’s the sad reality here in the Philippines now specially there are many cancer people here. Going to the same sex marriage for me its not ok, because we must follow the rules of God that no one is allowed to be married with the same sex. “humayo kayo at magpakarami” how can a same sex can make the world bigger? same sex relationship is okay but marriage? no way. Yes the idea of Global Divide is not always for the good future of everyone but also discrimination. Dont mind the same sex if they’re inlove to each other, nothing’s wrong with that. And the main root of this happening is the other rich countries that approved the same sex marriage and now other countries wants to be like the rules of other country having same sex marriage. Follow God’s rules.

  55. A World Full of Uniqueness
    In this era, it is very inevitable to be criticized and judged by the people that surround you. There are so many ways to be criticized and to criticize especially in the modern world wherein people gets to have an impression and a quick view in a certain subject without knowing the factors and side stories of that matter. Mostly stereotypes have been intact in the minds of some individual at all aspects especially when people see other people’s differences and flaws. Some could be seen through, sizes, ethnicity, race, skin, disabilities and gender. Here in the Philippines, people are more likely to be judged without looking at themselves.

    It is inevitable but it can be lessen through awareness. We have different perspectives in life. We have different definition of beautiful and pleasant. For the reason that we get critic and be criticized because it does not satisfy everyone. The advocacy should be heard out. People’s opinion regarding discrimination should take place. But the discipline should begin with the people themselves. Everyone must understand that throughout these differences is a succession and progression awaits if people are receptive and not too judgemental.

  56. CAPISTRANO, Justine

    One of the example of global divide that affects me as a filipino is we Filipinos are being criticised by other countries because of the quality of education and also because of economic status. Philippines is known of one of the developing countries and our country is being criticised as one of the poorest country. For me global divide is not a good idea because it simply discriminate the countries especially the countries in south who is still developing. The LGBTQ is more acceptable in countries in global north because in countries in north it is legal or they accept people who are members of LGBTQ not like in countries in global south the members of LGBTQ are being discriminate by their own country man because of their gender.

  57. Discrimination has a big impact for an individual because they’re just putting this individual down and shoving him/her out of the society, I mean aren’t we all should be accepted to be part of the society? Everyone in this world is not suppose to be judge just by their race or personal desire but be judge by their actions only. In fact those people who judge and discriminate should be the one to be apart from society. Nowadays people can do amazing things but still they are judged and still finds a whole of mistake from their doings, discrimination must stop. It’s funny, I listened to this song about one day this all will change, treat people the same, stop with the violence down with the hate, one day we’ll all be free and proud to be. It makes me wonder how good it will be and all people around the world is nothing but happy, no hate and all people are treated the same.

  58. Racial segregation is one example of global divide. It is the separation of people into racial or other ethnic groups in daily life. It may apply to activities such as eating in a restaurant, drinking from a water fountain, using a public toilet, attending school, going to the movies, or riding on a bus. And yes, the idea of global divide is as good as discrimination because it divides a whole nation, by belittling people, persecuting the weak that it makes the people that are entitled stronger.

  59. In the world full of religions , personalities and cultures. As for religions this is mostly reason that is people arguing about their own “Gods” they are proud of their “Gods” so the other people believes their “Gods” is the real God , Thus sometimes made people violate some other religions just to see how they’re loyal and faithful to their Gods. And for the personalities this sometimes affect on us, because this how we look and see if rejected or accepted the person’s personality , if it’s a trusted person or not and sometimes we based our judges on the looks of the person it’s just sad to see others judging based on the looks but not really knowing the personality of the person have . As for the Culture , thus are the sensitive specially when you don’t know how to great the community in their culture or country . Global divide is good as discrimination, because it’s just as said “Divide” there is no reason to divide , It’s just there are people who are a such a douche , discriminating other peoples gender and disabilities.LGBT are just like us people so why need to discriminate , And most of them had contributed so much in our Community .

  60. – one example that I experienced is when we travel to go to the province. we were there to have a good vacation and it has a great distance to the metro, this place has its own dialect. Some can speak tagalog but some can’t. This makes us divided from having a good communication with the people there. It’s fustrating not to know what they are telling and having a difficulty to say what we want to say but this also makes me want to learn their diaect.

    -the idea of the Global Divide can be consider connected to the act of discrimination. Because of the Global divide, we tend to have different set of norms and judgement of how things should be and how people should be or do. It leads to discrimination of other people from opposite sides but not all discrimination act are because of the global divide. most people are just being rude and making discrimination a hobby.

    – in the Global North countries like USA, Canada and western Europe, people are open-minded when it comes to LGBTQ+ community. They respects them and accepts them for who they are regardless of their gender. For I think this countries can easily adapt to change. In the other hand, the Global South countries including the Philippines, there are people in support of this community but majority of the people doesn’t. We believe that this act is against what the Catholic Church believes that a man is only for a woman. this countries sticks to the traditional and thinks that the way they used to be is the best way to be. For the Global South countries, it’s the other way around of how the Global North countries handle people in the LGBTQ+ community.

  61. I considered my experience on global divide is that when i was a child we dont need internet in our daily chores we just wanna play outside with our friends and make some bonding moments. By now when we get older as a teenager we always want to use mobile gadgets all the time and internet and sometimes when we were at with our friends we dont have some time to talk each other because of the gadgets we face all the time by now we cant leave without gadgets anymore because sometimes it was very useful for us but lacking time for us to the people who always around us. We always use it as a educational purpose too. I think that the global north is not favor for LGBTQ+ Because they think that having some other identity or different personalities are bad for their image because they were religious and not making any mistake that gods created while in the global south is okay for LGBTQ+because they considered it as a freedom for them to know who really they are and they can easily bulgar themselves and be proud who they are.

  62. Our religion is one of the issues on global divide. Especially if it relates to the LGBTQ+. The members of the south divide, including us, filipinos really rely and believe on our religion. Now, we tend to use that against the LBGT. It is really sad that we can’t accept such issues because we embrace too much on our beliefs. While most of the north divide tolerates it and accepts it. Therefore, i think that divides is as good as discrimination for that same reason and also the accessibility to such things. And we idolize/imitate/ copy them because they are more updated on such things. North divide and South divide have different perspectives on LGBTQ+ . Mainly the reason is our own religion.

  63. 1. Of course the very first global divide that affected me first hand is the technology, since it become part of my everyday life.

    2. For me yes on a few but big cases for example, if you have a great technology the other country will want you and will not be able to control you as how they like.

    3. If my understanding to the question is correct, for me it’s because people comes to realization that they are a human too they still have rights.

    Living our world right now is like living in a world full of cameras. People take pictures and then they will judge it, as if they knew everything about that picture. Many people nowadays are easily get judged by others by their race, gender, physical appearance, etc. They feel like they are secluded and out casted. People have their own weaknesses and strengths we should help each and everyone. Each person has their own uniqueness. In the end what truly matters is that we respect everyone. It’s better to live in a world where you can proudly shout out to the world of your sexuality without being judged.

  65. One of the common examples of Global Divide that affects the society is the issue about Racism. It is the inequality between the white people and the African-American people. They tend to discriminate a person depending on his/her color. Then sometimes they try to avoid African-American people because they thought that they are not belong in the society, and this thing is definitely an offense to them.
    There is somehow similarity between the global divide and discrimination. A society became divided because of many discriminations happening in the world. Everyone needs to be accepted, we should not base on how they look, we should treat everyone equally.
    The LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from Global North to Global South because some of the countries in the Global North are already liberated. They already have the freedom from social conventions or traditional ideas, especially with regard to sexual roles. While the countries belong in the Global South are somehow disciplined and religious. Member of the LGBTQ+ or not, everyone should be respected.

  66. global divide affected me in my first hand because we all know that the society control us in what we are doing especially in our daily lives because the goverment and the existence of the development of every country affected us when it comes to rules and regulation or other term the law. The revolutionary of every country or global divide result in misunderstanding of the society so that people are not united because of different culture that shows of global divide and it affects my first hand because i will enherit the culture and persfective of my ancestor and because of global divide it can cause some changes in my life.

    For me no it is not good discrimination because we are not united as one because of global divide. Different culture so that we have different persfective and because of that people is not compatible to each one of us because of our different mindset and i think thats one oft the discrimination because we are not all the same.

    Lgbtq is different in every global part because every countries have different persfective when it comes to this gender sexuality in other countries such as America and Thailand lgbtq is accepted because same sex union si allow to them. But in our country the Philippines it is still on the bill of the supreme court there is no official declaration of approving the same sex union so we have different part of accepting them but it defends on their freedom.

  67. One example of Global Divide that affected me personally is the Technological Advancement of the Philippines compared to other successful countries (c’mon, you saw this coming haha), Being left behind technology that could actually help you, is rather disappointing, its either not available here in the PH or its too expensive to be bought. As a tech-geek person, i would like to at least see firsthand the latest and beefiest technologies out there to quench my thirst of curiosity and be inspired to someday get these items. Although it sets a “divide” from “First world countries to third world countries” i personally cannot consider it as discrimination, one reason is that, these divides are created through business, through economy approaches, through negotiation, that could eventually lead to the increase of our GDP, unfortunately though, well, we have the likes of *insert corrupt politicians here*. Religion and Culture plays a role on how wealthy the country is. The Global North with contains the Powerhouses such as, America,France,Russia,and Europe as a whole, and these said countries have “almost” abandoned the traditional value of culture, although we cannot exactly say that losing one’s religion can bring good to the country *Points at Japan*, but in these countries, being individualistic (aims to be better financially and socially as a person )and only giving small glances at their religion proves to be effective. The LGBTQ+ however is a different story, The Global South is HIGHLY against LGBTQ+, as they refer to their religions on what is the “right” thing for building a relationship (in which, by the way, these religions existed about thousands of years ago and is seriously outdated), while the Global North, although not fully, casts away the rules of their religion and puts “i am happy at my decision, i don’t care what anybody says” attitude upfront.

  68. The article says of an ideal-self since there are few characteristics the author is rooting to see in a person. An ideal self that can change itself and change the world in a long run.No one has a right to discriminate because every individual has a right to choose what they wanted to be as individual and has there own voice to speak what is right for them. We don’t have the rights to judge someone because he or she is different. Everyone has there own flaws and imperfections and in the eyes of god we are one. Being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer are not bad as long as you’re not harming anyone.

    DEN183

  69. In all of the people living in earth not all are the same we have differences with each other we all different race,culture,skin color, social status and gender identity. That will truly say that an individual is unique on its own but some of us are not feel grateful with this kind of differences that they have some are not lucky to be treated fairly. One example of this is in terms of our Social Status it may not a big issue but somehow it truly affects me especially when I saw it making it a concept in a movie or in a normal setting it is quite similar as making a line towards to the higher class that separates to the lower class some of this scenario are common but if we try to observe it well we can see the ugliness of it.

    They said in this world we can hear judgments weather you do good they have something in their minds and when you do bad also it’s same as it as well although it is normal in the people to judge and we can do nothing with it just like in global divide is like you are dividing some parts that belong to this side and so on. Global divide is also like a discrimination for me because even though we are not truly discriminating a person but we are making a barrier towards to them which is quite similar. We are created equally so we should treat and see each other as equal no more or no less.

    As the time goes by we saw some new phase brought by globalization which is the LGBTQ+ that has spread across the world and make a social movement in treating the other genders fairly and accept them as they are which is they find others somehow different because in this world we believe that it is consist of a boy and a girl but as the goes by people are still confused of what truly they are and that is we called gender identity that makes this kind of movement to know their selves more than they thought which is something good because if you are not truly your real to yourself that wouldn’t create peace towards to the world. In the end we try to speak for ourselves no matter what is our race, our culture and values, our social status, our color and our gender identity we should love ourselves because we are unique in our own way.

  70. I dont have any experince that global divide affects me but what i see in todays society global divide is one of the major factors when it comes to ranking in countries. Our country Philippines is being discriminate by other countries because philippines is one of the poorest country. Global Divide discriminate many countries especially in countries in south like haiti, myanmar, philippines etc. that’s why global divide is not a good idea, it humilates one person living in south countries. LGBTQ is more acceptable in global north, they treat this kind of gender in a nice way they have this gender equality. While in global south members of LGBTQ is being criticised by some people, they don’t have the freedom to express their own culture and their personalities.

  71. One of the Global Divide that affects me first hand is the technology we have now. We do have connections to the internet but it was so slow if became the reason why some thing that’s out of the plan happen. I experience it one time where in we have to submit some projects online. the file that need to be send is a bit heavy and the internet connection is so slow I end up having deduction because it was sent late. i felt so upset that time because I felt that I made everything that I can but still failed. Luckily, I am still able to get good grades. If only we have better technologies like what other countries have, I think it will be better not just for me and some students but for everyone doing some transaction online.

    I don’t think so. I think global divide is just stating that a nation is not competitive enough when it comes to development. Unlike Discrimination, people do have intentions to degrade or to not treat others right like they are different from others. global divide only shows that there are countries that still need to improve so that they will be capable to keep in pace with developed countries.

    I think because of us being religious, and some other countries, we tend to believe some beliefs and culture that It’s a male and a female what God did. We are so close minded that some of us didn’t understand other people’s perspective. Unlike other countries, they are open minded specially to change. they try to accept to everyone and don’t judge. Nowadays, with the help of different medias, LGBTQ+ is slowly accepting by the world. With the PRIDE campaign, a lot of people is hugging the said community.

  72. As a Christian God created only two gender in the world male and female, but in present day  it became a different gender a divided gender called lesbian, gay and bisexual activist (LGB) leaders worked hard to keep those who called themselves “transgender” or “transsexual” as far out of the public eye as possible. I think I’ve seen the current trends appearing in governments and the media, these being accompanied by further hate toward traditional ideas and religions, that just favor lgbt groups bacuse that is “the thing”. For instance. Now we aren’t going through a lgbt secular fad, where morals and religion are things of the past so we can progress into the obviously better accepting future, but too get there we must be less accept what they want to do in her/his life.

  73. Example of Global Divides that affect our country is discrimination or gender inequality because it has has been rooted into our history, tradition, and culture, and has become a subconscious stigma and stereotype that men are better than women. Women are the bringers of life and are entitled to live with dignity and confidence that they are equals with men. There are many problems that highlight gender differences. Also the discrimination to the LGBT community is one factor of global divides because many people judge them and other says that it is against the Roman Catholic religion, but somehow in workplace LGBT employees does not discriminate against a person’s sexual orientation in regards to hiring. To be sure, the FBI has open lesbian, gay, bisexual, and possibly transgender employees, as well as an LGBT Advisory Committee. The FBI welcomes and appreciates the contribution of its LGBT employees.

    The global divide on homosexuality is one of the example that affects very much. Living in this world and having this kind of sexuality is so hard especially when people in the society doesn’t understand and accepts you. I’m sad for this because were always experience everyday to be hated, underestimated, discriminated, isolated and treated without respect. It hurts me because I don’t feel any freedom at all, freedom in choosing for being I am, freedom to love and freedom to express my opinions.

    There is inequality in any form of bodies. And yes, in my own opinion I can say that the ideas of global divide as good as discrimination simply because there is always a gaps happens that took a way to for a person or group people being discriminated just for example in gender, ethnics, political and characteristics.

    The LGBTQ were being perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from countries from Global South simply because the legislation that was being signed by the government and relation to the religion itself.

  75. In the world full of religions , personalities and cultures. As for religions this is mostly reason that is people arguing about their own “Gods” they are proud of their “Gods” so the other people believes their “Gods” is the real God , Thus sometimes made people violate some other religions just to see how they’re loyal and faithful to their Gods. And for the personalities this sometimes affect on us, because this how we look and see if rejected or accepted the person’s personality , if it’s a trusted person or not and sometimes we based our judges on the looks of the person it’s just sad to see others judging based on the looks but not really knowing the personality of the person have . As for the Culture , thus are the sensitive specially when you don’t know how to great the community in their culture or country . Global divide is good as discrimination, because it’s just as said “Divide” there is no reason to divide , It’s just there are people who are a such a douche , discriminating other peoples gender and disabilities.LGBT are just like us people so why need to discriminate , And most of them had contributed so much in our Community .

  76. It can be simply defined as worldwide integration and development, but if asked to be defined by the world’s citizens it’s simply referred to as conflict. As you continue to read further, you will see how globalization and the north- south global divide play a key role in our nation’s economy. From the wars on European soil and increasing poverty in Africa, to the booming technological abilities in Japan, this one word will be an understatement to all things to come.

  77. One example of global divide that affected me at first hand is, about the inequity between the rich and the poor people, that other people say something bad about you or about your life. I feel so embarrassed when I heard someone say about me that kind of things and I am also angry to them because they are saying something to me that they don’t know what is my true story behind that story and there is a quote about it that “Don’t’ judge a book by its cover”. In my case people just tend to say something to that person like me that they don’t just ask me first before they open there mouth and say bad things about me and it is a ugly characteristic to a person and sometimes other say fake news to their friends about that person like me.

    I think in my opinion it is a no, because when we are talking about global divide it is like a discrimination because you are discriminating other people of just their looks or their personality or from what country they are and it is not helpful for people or for their country because of the judgement of other people from them and it is not right because you were like seeing them as a bad person or their country must disappear and also some person who are discriminating other people it is a bad thing for a person because it is like you don’t have any respect to that person or respect from his/her country and in this world we must help each other and not discriminating other people. It is also like in the article that this person thinks that he is not belong to that group or to their country or society.

    Because other countries say that if you are one of the member of LGBTQ+ you are a person from underground god they call, and it is also a sin from God because they change their own kind of person they are and also some parents don’t like them or they are not welcome in their home because some parents want them to the they are since they were born. There are some religions they are not welcome to other countries because they don’t like that kind of gender that they have changed their own uniqueness as a person. So other people went to other countries that they feel they are belong to that country and they will live free as a normal person. But today, all countries respect other people about there own uniqueness as a person and there are some people that they don’t like to see them as they were new person, also in today’s generation some LGBTQ+ members has a lot of changes in different countries and they also make profit in their country because they are the persons that fight back against their enemies just because of their gender and some LGBTQ+ has a work from different countries so today there are a lot of LGBTQ+ members that have invest some money for their future and for their families and there are a lot of LGBTQ+ members that are rich today because they work hard for their family and for themselves so I salute to all LGBTQ+ members in all parts of the countries in the world.

  78. The global digital divide describes global disparities, primarily between developed and developing countries, in regards to access to computing and information resources such as the Internet and the opportunities derived from such access.

    In my opinion the idea of global divide is that people in the world nowadays strive for money, more success and more money so they sell their advance information to countries who can afford it leaving the poor countries with so-so knowledge and their own instinct about things instead of sharing it with everyone, well who would share some knowledge that you work so hard for without getting anything in return? Well I’m sure I wouldn’t, you see? That’s how the world works money, money and more money simple right?

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from Global North to Global South. It is because, the acceptance of homosexuality is very extensive in countries where religion is less central in people’s live. These are also among the richest countries in the world. In contrast, in poorer countries with high levels of religiosity, few believe homosexuality should be accepted by society. But to make this short, we should accept a person no matter what gender they have. Let them live. Mind your own business.

  79. As a human being, my example of a global divide is the religion due to that our world is consists of different religion and in every one of it has different rules that the obey or follow rather. It is not totally affects me but it is what I saw as a person. It is hard for them sometimes to obey the rules they have in their religion.

    Global Divide is as good as discrimination because like discrimination, global divides used to divide a group of people somehow the people who used to go with other group will not welcome that person to their group due to that they are just focusing on what they have or who they are as a person. and didn’t even mind about other people that doesn’t belong in their group.

    I don’t mind about the LGBTQ+ people due to that they have their own ways, and it is their life not mine. So as a human being again, supporting them on what they want is a good way. Just minding my own business.

  80. Well this waspost was very well just wrote the corrputed minds of the people due to cultural beiliefs which religion had a major contribution.

    I have three relared problems/experienced situation:

    1.) Being in a third world country global divide affects us significantly. We are the ones who have yet to access the newest anything.

    I in particular have felt

  81. Global Digital Divide is a great example, Digital Divide tackles the community or people who does not have an easy and accessible internet or it it could be worse like having no computers nor cellular phones. It is very frustrating to be honest – that we wanted to see our nation move forward from our current Progress with Globalization but neither us do not care about the rural areas access to the digital world.

    I wouldn’t totally say that the idea of the Global Divide is as good as discrimination, because we have to consider a lot of factors in making this conlusion.

    LGBT – an acronym used to shorten Leasbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender. there are different sexual orientation in almost every culture and every society, some noted that homosexuality also finds a mention in the various pre-colonial laws – Homosexuality is sometimes seen as an offense. Today there are organizations to help rise the LGBT rights globally.

  82. Discrimination means treating a person unfairly because of who they are or because they possess certain characteristics. If you have been treated differently from other people only because of who you are or because you possess certain characteristics, you may have been discriminated against.It’s better to live in a world where you can freely show the world of whoever you are on the inside. We treat everyone differently based on our impression. We always come up being biased to something. If you really think about it, we are all made equal it is just our perception and expectation that divides us. 🙂

    1. My example of global divide is the middle class, high class and the low class. In the middle class this are the people who has job and living naturaly. The high class are the one who are the riches people. They have their own buildings and own properties. And the low class are the one who are the poor people. They have no job at all and the one of the main reason why these people get on the low class is their dynasty. They keep repeating their cycle instead of doing something to make them into atleast in the middle class. It makes me feel bad because sometimes it causes discrimination.
    2. In some point it is like discrimination. Because there are people who work hard but they keep poor. Like the farmers. they work hard on there job but the salary they get is not that much to pay there work hard. Because of the corruption. And yet they still at the low class.
    3. Because people are getting more judgmental. They judge what they saw. Some accepted the lgbtq while the others are not. like in the other country like america. they accept same sex marriage while in the other country are not because they have their different beliefs

  84. In the world full of religions , personalities and cultures. As for religions this is mostly reason that is people arguing about their own “Gods” they are proud of their “Gods” so the other people believes their “Gods” is the real God , Thus sometimes made people violate some other religions just to see how they’re loyal and faithful to their Gods. And for the personalities this sometimes affect on us, because this how we look and see if rejected or accepted the person’s personality , if it’s a trusted person or not and sometimes we based our judges on the looks of the person it’s just sad to see others judging based on the looks but not really knowing the personality of the person have . As for the Culture , thus are the sensitive specially when you don’t know how to great the community in their culture or country . Global divide is good as discrimination, because it’s just as said “Divide” there is no reason to divide , It’s just there are people who are a such a douche , discriminating other peoples gender and disabilities.LGBT are just like us people so why need to discriminate , And most of them had contributed so much in our Community .

  85. The global divide of internet and technology that some derive the benefits from Internet access, but many others do not.. It is unfair knowing people from the city only have the more benefit from the internet or technology. Some tribes or people afar from the city or the civilize town have lack of knowledge when it comes to modern world, yes it might have cons when our tribes earns knowledge to technology for example or entering social media, and forgetting the culture but we must know we are living in a one country and a one world, that we must be treated equally, all must have their benefit and must know the responsibility and the right use.

    It is not good as discrimination, as I said above the social communication of each individual might be affected because of lack of ethics or good manner. The government must also have the action toward the global divide.

    LGBTQ is perceive by different countries because of their own culture and setting their mind to what they have to act regarding their culture and tradition, that they must be this way not that way. Also, I guess the reason behind is lack of interactions to people who is an LGBTQ individual, they don’t know the side of LGBTQ community and they also don’t know some knowledge experiencing being an LBGT.

  86. In the world full of religions , personalities and cultures. As for religions this is mostly reason that is people arguing about their own “Gods” they are proud of their “Gods” so the other people believes their “Gods” is the real God , Thus sometimes made people violate some other religions just to see how they’re loyal and faithful to their Gods. And for the personalities this sometimes affect on us, because this how we look and see if rejected or accepted the person’s personality , if it’s a trusted person or not and sometimes we based our judges on the looks of the person it’s just sad to see others judging based on the looks but not really knowing the personality of the person have . As for the Culture , thus are the sensitive specially when you don’t know how to great the community in their culture or country . Global divide is good as discrimination, because it’s just as said “Divide” there is no reason to divide , It’s just there are people who are a such a douche , discriminating other peoples gender and disabilities.LGBT are just like us people so why need to discriminate , And most of them had contributed so much in our Community .

  87. My example of global divide is innovation. Innovation is one of the endeavours on problem solving like innovation oil, electricity, technology and other innovation that help contributed in our world. Like in our country we don’t have someone like Einstein, newton, Bill Gates and mark Zuckerberg that who is been an innovator. I felt like our country which is a third world country that we are still developing our strengths and abilities to show to the world that we are not just a small country but we can show how strong are we in terms of heart and dedication to our work.
    For my own thought I think it is a good discrimination in order to motivate our society and improve our weaknesses and strengths to become one of the most innovative country in the generation. For my observation, our country has a chance to prove itself how strong it is but we need to take action with perseverance and hard work.
    About the LGBTQ+ on other countries in the world like Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and etc. I’m a neutral in terms on supporting them or against them because we cannot control a person’s emotions that we just let them be their selves and make their own choices. Some countries approve on LGBTQ+ marriage and some do not because of religious reasons. Mostly the countries approve LGBTQ+ is in the global north because most of those countries don’t have a religion and some does have it but still support their emotions. Mostly in the global south are religious countries like Philippines, Japan, India, and in the Middle East.

  88. The Global Divide describes global disparities, primarily between developed and developing countries.

    Community represents all the people living in a particular area or region and sharing feeling and things belonging to a group by another. If groups of people or countries are presumed to be a community, no words such as ‘divide’ or ‘discrimination’ are worth to be used together with community. I experience during my stage of being a kid is playing outside the house with my friends playing larong pinoy. During that time gadget is not that trend or use at all time because its is not that high tech. But children nowadays use to play gadgets or computer because of the development of technologies. I cant see children playing larong pinoy outside the house but some children still do the old activities.

    LGBT in global north are supported. They use to be open minded about that thing. They show respect and love for those people who are LGBT. But here in our country there are full of judgemental people. They use to judge people who are involve in LGBTQ+ but still we need to show respect and love for this people.

  89. One of the example (also that I’ve experience) of the global divide that affect me as a human is body shaming. I feel bad about to myself because I feel that I am not worthy to be love. I feel bad because of the discrimation. Probably because of telling how big I am, telling that I should just eat less amount and I should lose my weight. But I am just being who I am. It feels that it tells me, “para tanggapin ka ng mundo, kailangan mong baguhin ang physical appearance mo”, which for me, this leads to a wrong concept.

    To tell you is, global divide is not good as discrimation in someways, because for me, there are comparison regards to the events and to its situation. For an example, in community of urban places, we are extremely surrounds by the adavancement of technology and knows how to use computers properly while in the rural place, it seems that they are not much aware of these asvance because of lacking of sources and just know what’s the culture in the rural places. With that, there is a discrimation. Some people can degrade the knowledge of the people who lives in the rural place because of the feeling of being “mangmang” or do not know how to use it that could lead to low self esteem instead of teaching on how to use this. We have our standard that couldn’t just accept others to ourself. Thinking that they will not know everything or would remain “innocent” to the given example.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from countries from Global South because of the genders and sexuality that people have. It all notice and treated differently based on the perception of the person that could leads to discrimation. For an example, in Global North, people are fine with the LGBTQ+ while in the Global South, people are not okay with this because it leads of differences. Through this, it leads to have a miscommunication and misunderstanding to this issue that still existing up until today. One of the current trend that I’ve known about this is the issue regards to the Comfort Room, that whether you are gay, you must still use the the male comfort room because even though you as yourself is a gay, biologically speaking you are spemarche (Male) and same as for women.

  90. INF 182
    One of the global divide that I encountered is racism. Here in the Philippines, when you have a dark skin, you are considered “pangit” or somehow “di maganda” although Filipinosare born morenos/morenas. People judge base on other country like western. For me, global divide is considered discrimination because people tend to make fun of the differences of a particular group. When it comes to LGBTQ+, people may use religions since Christianity manifests here in the Philippines. We may not blame people because of their reasons of why they judge because everyone has its own point of view. It may be accepted in other country but some may not because of its own beliefs.

  91. In the world full of religions , personalities and cultures. As for religions this is mostly reason that is people arguing about their own “Gods” they are proud of their “Gods” so the other people believes their “Gods” is the real God , Thus sometimes made people violate some other religions just to see how they’re loyal and faithful to their Gods. And for the personalities this sometimes affect on us, because this how we look and see if rejected or accepted the person’s personality , if it’s a trusted person or not and sometimes we based our judges on the looks of the person it’s just sad to see others judging based on the looks but not really knowing the personality of the person have . As for the Culture , thus are the sensitive specially when you don’t know how to great the community in their culture or country . Global divide is good as discrimination, because it’s just as said “Divide” there is no reason to divide , It’s just there are people who are a such a douche , discriminating other peoples gender and disabilities. LGBT are just like us people so why need to discriminate , And most of them had contributed so much in our Community .

  92. I consider this experience as a global divide when I’m in senior high school, I have four best friends who are totally rich, so we are five in total. I have classmate who told us that they should kick me out on our group because she knew that I’m not like them and she also knew that I live in squatters’ area. I knew that she only tells those words just to tease me and to laugh with my other classmates or maybe she was joking but deep inside, it hurts, and I feel offended. I don’t know what to do so I was smiling at her, trying to pretend that it didn’t affect me at all because I know that if I show her that I’m affected, she will more tease me and I don’t want to be in trouble to anyone. I want to prove them that, maybe we don’t have much money, but we have good attitude and we are good people.

    For me, global divide is somehow like discrimination because you will not be able to express truly yourself to anyone. Being compared and having a different side is where the discrimination begins like being compared by your status whether you’re rich or poor or being judged by your gender and by your appearance is unfair and unequal. For me, global divide really affects each other’s life.

    I think that some countries accept the LGBTQ+ community mostly in the northern countries. There are some countries which is very open for the homosexual people as they respect and accept the personality, gender and the identity of each other. But, in the southern countries, there are only few countries who accept and support the LGBTQ+ community because of traditions and religions like for example same sex marriage. In Catholic Christian, they believe that the act of being homosexual is considered as a sin because it’s like you’re showing that you as a person didn’t like the gender that God gave you and it is a sign of disrespect to God. Mostly in southern countries, each nation has its own beliefs and traditions especially when it comes to gender.

    For my understanding global divide is an improvement (on going) and the best example for me is Knowledge. For me Global Divide is not a good way to discriminate, because Global divide is between developed and developing. From that definition it is process and that doesn’t mean we too need to use it as and advantage to discriminate someone through the color of their skin, race, gender and other things to discriminate. The case of being a gay, the society and the belief of the place is hindering them to develop or that is the case why they are handled differently, because in other countries LGBTQ+ is being supported by the government, media or the local folks. They are still people they can feel we shouldn’t set a side the third gender. Even though others are not supporting the LGBTQ+ they shouldn’t be discriminated not because they are different from us, but they are still the most different yet special and they are still human like us.

  94. Race or ethnicity devides us from the kind of person we are, by the color of our skin and etc. People see as differently, and easily judge us from being different to everyone else. Without even knowing the person. Do you think it really matters? But guess what, it don’t matter. We have all the same rights and equal opportunities, why it easy for us to judge someone. Where we should have stayed silent? Weren’t be taught to be nice or stay nothing at all? This is the case of our great down fall.

    The idea of global divide as good as discrimination, because discrimination divides people from their looks or beliefs that globally devides the people.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from the countries from Global South. It is because that we have countries that are highly influenced by Christianity, that states that God created adam and eve not Adam and Steve. Which contradicts a christians belief. Countries from global north they support LGBTQ+ some countries it is legal and they respect and love them. They are very open in this kind of idea. While the countries from south is not open in this kind of thing. They are not supported the LGBTQ+ communities.

  95. The global devide affects me on the digital part, well other country’s have a good and high technologies that can access good internet while at our country their are only specific places that you can surely used internet and you need to pay or buy load to have a data.However, I am from a province which signals are very poor, you need to go to the high places to actually have a 4G data or even 3G is enough, internet is our daily basis to check news, communicate, search information for academic purposes, entertainment and showbiz update, sad to say but untill now we only have -0.1 percent in terms of technologies. Global devide for me has a touch of discrimination, they are some information concluding that North is the Rich country and South is the Poor one, how about the other countries that are developing nowadays like Japan, Saudi Arabia and China which is located at the south and all of these actually reflects on the citizens of each country. I think their basis are not reliable and accurate, it shows discrimination among people and country. Anyhow, LGBTQ+ recognized by the global north and south country depends on their cultures, traditions and beliefs. The countrys belong to the global north has a huge acceptance regarding that matter otherwise the south are against with it, because in the south part some are muslim countrys and with this they have principles that LGBTQ+ are not tolerated. But in some cases world are more aware about this even if you are in the north or south.

    One Example that has affected me is the discrimination in culture and country, it made me feel sad at the same time angry because many people nowadays is basing their judgement on what country a person is from, for example is when the certain country called the people in the Philippines as caregivers just because many people from the Philippines is working abroad or OFW’s, it made me sad because we should be all united and not judge each other base on their culture and from which country a person is from. Discrimination is never a good thing, not just because it divides people from every country but because discrimination is like an unfair judgement. A persons ability and knowledge should not be based on where they are from and what is their culture, but one must prove himself/herself base on what they really know. Most countries that approves LGBT and support them is from north countries and mostly they support this because for them being able to love is not a sin, and for southern countries is mostly a catholic country that does not support lgbt because they believe that it is a sin to marry or to love someone with the same gender because it is written on the bible. Based on my observations most countries who do not support lgbt is mostly a catholic country and believe that it is a sin based on the bible.

  97. Global divides has a big impact on our society, It can defined as worldwide integration and development.
    And one of the example of global divide that affects us as an individual is the discrimination, Every move every talk everyone will discriminate you and sometimes they judge you. It separates the poor and the middle class which is very despairing, there’s no equality. And Also the LGBTQ+ or the homosexual, some country from Global North to Global South.
    show their love to LGBT by supporting them in their organization. And some country discriminate the LGBTQ. But today many countries make an organizations to help rise the LGBTQ.

  98. 1. Living in a third world country, I experience discrimination from those who lived in a first world country. They belittle us and think low of us.

    2. Yes. Because instead of dividing them, why dont they just help other country and teach them the ways to be rich.

    3. I think it is because of the tradition and religion. Catholic church doesn’t really support homosexuality.

    – I have my experience for this global divide, As a millennial we are living in a world of technology. I am one of the internet user, I have a fast internet connection, but it doesn’t always earn the title. Sometimes I get half the speed I pay for during certain times of the day. I’ve done all the usual modem resetting tech support always require but I still have the problem.

    – Is the idea of global divide as good as discrimination? For me Yes, because discrimination is one of the most problem here in our society. These factors of global divide can include job availability, wages, the prices and/or availability of goods and services, and the amount of capital investment funding available to minorities for business. This can include discrimination against workers, consumers, and minority-owned businesses. We need, in short, creative thinking about the reality that we have a vibrant and potentially powerful instrument to increase wealth and welfare, the global economy.

    – I think LGBT is perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from countries from Global South, because much of the world has become more accepting of same-sex sexuality between partners of legal age. Legal recognition of same-sex relationships also varies greatly. Legal privileges pertaining to different-sex relationships that may be extended to same-sex couples include parenting, adoption and access to reproductive technologies. Some regions have laws specifically excluding same-sex couples from particular rights such as adoption.

  100. The global digital divide describes global disparities, primarily between developed and developing countries, in regard to access to computing and information resources such as the Internet and the opportunities derived from such access.

    Global Divide is as good as discrimination because also here in the Philippines there are still region and places that don’t have an access on what is trend this day and it makes a huge gap between regions that have access to modern information and communications technology and to those regions that don’t or have restricted access. They don’t have enough knowledge because of that they get discriminated by other people.

    In global north same sex-marriage has been legalized they simply supporting the LGBTQ+ “people” “community” but while in global south are not okay with it because of religious beliefs. Also, in global north people tend to be openminded about it and they show respect and love for those people who are LGBTQ people while in global south a lot of LGBTQ people get discriminated because of who they are and what they are. One of the current trends that I’ve known is about working at company a lot of LGBT people get rejected by the company because they are “gay”, “lesbian” and a lot of clients disrespect them even though they have a higher position.

  101. PSY184

    According to some article that I’ve read before global divide is describe as the gap among the well developed and developing countries. Which somehow implies to me that it is related to the common problem of a society which is discrimination. Having a gap between countries means having a disparities and having disparities also implies the existence of what’s superior and not. Honestly, I’m not sure if what I have experienced is part of the global divide but I cannot forget how I grew up being judge by other people. ” Ay ito na yung bunso nyo?”, “Kapatid mo yan?!”, Ay we bakit ang itim?”, “bakit di nyo siya kamukha?”, “yung bunso nyo pinakamaitim sainyo no?”. Those are some of the sentences that I typically hear before. Well, maybe some will think that it’s normal, that it’s fine without knowing that it already marked me as a person. It made me shy, unconfident, uncertain, unloved and ugly but that was before because as I grew I’ve finally realized how precious am I. I’ve realized my worth and keep on protecting myself from other people so that I won’t be shattered again.

    LGBTQ+ is perceives differently in north and south because of having a completely distinct culture from each other. If I’m not mistaken north is the pne who legalized same sex marriage first than south especially that north is more liberated than in southern. Especially in asia, asians have a very stronghold in their religions as part of culture that’s why it took them a lot of time to finally embrace the existence of LGBTQ+ community.

    Sex discrimination is an on going problem that exists in many forms. Little girls are expected to play dolls while boys are expected to play rough. These thoughts are planted into children’s minds as they grow and produce men and women who make up our society. Masculinity is often associated with competition, aggression and emotional detachment while feminity is associated with soft, vulnerability and being able to submit to men. Sex discrimination can be seen in a household. An example would be the distribution of household chores. Girls should wash the dishes, wash clothes, sweep the floor, etc. while boys get to do what they want to do. Global divide is as good as discrimination. It also divides and segregates people because of their race, religion, etc.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from the north and south. As of 2018 in the global north, same-sex marriage is performed and recognized by law in some countries such as United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Germany, etc. I can say that global north recognize LGBTQ+ and same-sex marriage is considered to be a human right and a civil right. Some of the global south countries where religion is widespread, homosexuality is seen to be a mistake or a sin. Gays and lesbians are generally tolerated (if not accepted) but discrimination remains. Race, gender, religion should not determine what a person is. We should not judge people because our differences instead, we should understand that we are all different, all of us have or own ways, talents and skills. We should embrace diversity, accept all people and their uniqueness.

  103. Is Philippines open enough in terms of gender preference? In these times of uncertainty and fear that has seemingly taken over in our country. We must do is to set aside our differences and beliefs that degrade one individual and forget our academic and social preferences. Philippine culture is known for being conservative and old school unlike america that has been liberated ever since, you cannot simple apply the understanding for the lgbtq community. In fact the global south and north has different perspective each individual so we cannot denied the fact.

    Im here to tell everyone that we’re not different but we are the same. Also we deserve the same kind of protections under legislation. We’re all humans. Pride is not just a celebration but its a protest. Its a fight for love, for acceptance, family, and finding who you are a beliefs of one another. So, I would hope that all the people out here would really adhere to what lgbtq fighting for. Even if I’m not a light I can be a spark so that we can inspire others. So let us march towards forward in the hopes of building a peaceful community.

  104. Discrimination is everywhere. We judge other people because of their social status, ethnicity, gender, and way of behavior or their specific worldview. Surely enough, we are also judged by others according to the same criteria. 

    I was teased way back on my junior high days for having that dark skin, though it wasnt really my natural skin color —i became dark because i was a varsity of swimming in our school. It was really tough, those sharp eyes of my classmates and the way they treated me. It got me thinking that, is this the consequence of chosing swimming? Apart from what i have experienced it made me stronger, it inspires me to not let anyone or anything affect you of pursuing what you love. Discrimination is said to be a very serious problem for the contemporary society —so as global divide for it easily gives label to countries —either they are on the MEDC or LEDC and it also sets limits to countries.

    Many people are guilty of discrimination against LGBT youths, whether consciously or unconsciously. LGBT youths are faced with daily discrimination from society, peers, family and even school teachers and administrations. They’re perceived differently in countries, for example here in the Philippines, a catholic country, and the people nurture for man to woman marriage not man to man or woman to woman marriage, so clearly they dont merely support this but on the the other hand the United States civil rights campaigns in supporting marriage without distinction as to sex or sexual orientation.

  105. I have considered religion divides us globally since Religion brings people together into various sectors: Jews, Christians, Muslims and Hindus. Sometimes these regional differences can lead to differences and hostility between people of different religions. I have realized that because of religion many countries wanted war because they wanted to acknowledge their religion is true. I became aware of this problem and thought that it would be peaceful for me to not believe in any religion. I respect any religion, when I was in Junior High I have a friend who is Iglesia Ni Cristo, He belongs to our group and my friends making fun of his religion. Discrimination to religion can lead to violence if one is sensitive in their religion, We should advocate that every religion has their own ideology. We all have as humans an identity, a set of values or a philosophy that suits our rational abilities. We cling to people who share this identity and promise loyalty.
    Considering LGBTQ+ in global north they do not always rely on religion idea but in rights of human. They supported and advocate people in their country to understand what LGBTQ+ really is. In global south, especially here in the philippines, LGBTQ+ is still perceived by other people differently because of society standards.
    Here’s what people need to see. Human beings are inherently different. No matter what you do, people may disagree on one issue or the other and have different opinions always.

  107. I can say that religion is one of the reason why we are divided globally. Because of this, people tend to communicate due to their own beliefs of their own God and Cultures they believe in and this reasons, sometimes causes a fire. Fire that starts fight. They fight for what they think is right. It arises a misunderstanding, that eventually made people to distance their self for one another and think that someone who don’t believe with their God’s is an enemy. And its been continuosly pass up until now. Sorry sir for the late response. There have been an error of connection in our are. Thank you po.

  108. The Idea of Global Divide is somehow discriminating because the political and economic disadvantages felt by racial minority groups persists across the globe. Not only is such discrimination unfair, it is a drag on global economic growth, and will not go away by itself.

  109. One example of a global divide that I have experienced before was the advancement of the education and technology in Singapore versus the Philippines. It is true that Singapore outclasses the Philippines across the board. As a Filipino in Singapore, I felt small at first. The Singaporean people with the same age as mine are more advanced in terms of the knowledge they earned in education and technology. However, with strong principles and outlook in life, I was able to adjust to their country and even adapt some of their ways of living and thinking.

    The idea of global divide is the same as discrimination since it sets unfair treatment against certain individuals or social groups that belong to different nations. It is a prejudice that allows individuals or certain groups to be superior among the others. These individuals or groups belong to the powerful, privileged, and with highest social status. On the other hand, other individuals or groups are the ones who are singled out for unequal treatment making us confined to an unimportant or powerless position.

  110. The global divide describes global discrepancy, primarily between developed and developing countries. One of my experience about this is the gender inequality, being a girl you should do this, do that, you need to be like this not that, don’t do that because you’re a girl. Limitations that makes us different from boys. And because of that there’s a large gap between girls and boys. Digital divide also can be a form of discrimination. Because of the limitations girls will not fully engage in economic and social life while the boys can. They are also saying that the boys can do anything they want to. I think that LGBTQ+ perceived differently by the Global North and South because they have different cultures, religions, and beliefs. Maybe also because of their life status.

  111. One example of a global divide that affected me personally is Citizenship. Obviously, I am a Filipino Citizen since based on legal terms, I was born in the Philippines and my parents are both Filipinos. Each country has its own Culture, Traditions Beliefs, and Government System that makes them a Country. And lastly, I would feel bad for our countrymen that are being abused in other countries because those abuse our people are somewhat racists.
    Discrimination is the negative side of the Global Divide and it’s one of the most common trend worldwide however, Global Divide is not quite a bad thing unless we do it so. Discriminating others is a choice and based on Good Manners and Right Conduct, it is a bad behavior that are performed by people who thinks that they are good but in reality they are not.
    Most of the countries in the northern area in our world, LGBTQ+ is legal right now because their government are widely open for change and they also want happiness for the people who are living on their country. In the showcase of the legality of the LGBTQ+ on other countries, some of the Global South countries are also legalizing it because many people are protesting to legalize it for them to be treated as equal since in the sights of the people in Religious Faction, they are committing a sin that are prohibited based on bible. In short, Global South Countries are conservative and Global North countries are ideally democratic.

Discriminating others is a choice and based on Good Manners and Right Conduct, it is a bad behavior that are performed by people who thinks that they are good but in reality they are not.Global North Countries are ideally democratic, it’s the main reason why LGBTQ+ are legal since it’s also a factor for the betterment for their people and country. Global South Countries are conservative and it’s the main reason why some of the countries aren’t legalizing LGBTQ+ since most countries are very much committed on their religion.

  113. This advocacy is an eye opener to each one, especially now where discrimination is so common in our society. We should not degrade and belittle someone just because of his/her color, race, religion, gender and status in life. We are created equally by God so let’s love and respect each one. In my observation i saw discrimination in some religions, for instance; some people treat this person unfairly because of his/her different belief. Looking at this person as bad and will do something strange. This situation really affect me, we should not be stereotype in judging someone. Try to know him/her more deeply before we judge incorrectly. Also the in the LGBTQ+, some country perceived them differently probably because of the beliefs and rules of that country.

  114. We are living in a world where criticisms and discriminations are dominant. Most of us, tend to mocked and ridicule other people’s belief, religions, skin color, body shape and gender just because they do not meet the standards of our society, but the truth is, we are the only one who puts the “oh-so-called-standards” in our society and because of these standards majority of us belittled ourselves that could cause low self-esteem and insecurities.

    One of the example of global divide that affected me is smart-shaming I know that I’m not a smart person and I don’t consider myself as an intelligent person, but everytime I want to share my knowledge people around me will say “edi ikaw na magaling” “daming alam” “feeling matalino” I know most of these statements are taken lightly, but it really hurts especially when your only intention is to share your knowledge. It took long time for me to realized that I should not devaluate myself and capabilities just because of their criticisms. With that experience I can say that global divide can consider as a type of discrimination because it clearly shows unfair treatment between different groups of people.

    LGBTQ+ perceived differently from countries in North and South, because of different factors and beliefs in culture . Given the fact that most of the places in North are Catholic countries, but still they legalized same sex marriage, because they want to promote equality between homosexual couples and and they want to support and feel accepted the LGBT’s in their countries. While in South, the idea of same sex marriage is not given too much attention.

  115. I consider this experience as a worldwide gap since I live in provincial region where web association is exceptionally constrained. I am from Laguna and our town is a long way from the ordinarily realized urban communities like Calamba, Sta. Rosa, Biñan, and the preferences. Since telephone flag and web association has low flag level in our general vicinity, we can’t access to the web occasionally. This demonstrates a huge hole in the utilization, information, and access in the web or innovation with the other territory. Sooner or later, computerized partition can be a type of separation. Since some won’t have the capacity to connect completely in social, monetary or political life white others can. This may bar certain gatherings who don’t have an entrance to the Internet.

    I surmise that the Global North restricted LGBTQ+ on the grounds that the rights and opportunities of LGBTQ+ nationals are unequivocally affected by the predominant social customs and religious mores of individuals living in the locale. While those living in the Global South trusts that LGBTQ+ people ought to have indistinguishable rights from non-LGBTQ+ people.

  116. In my opinion in Global divide as goos as discrimination is the Internet usage In many developed counties, the growth of broadband is largely due to competition and declining prices, but is also made possible thanks to available infrastructure. In low-income developing countries, expanding broadband infrastructure such as cable and optical fibre connections outside urban areas tends to be very costly. Wireless technologies can help circumvent the cost of infrastructure for remote or rural areas. Vietnam, for example, is using the cutting-edge technology Wimax (worldwide interoperability for microwave access, which offers much higher speeds and wider range than wi-fi or wireless fidelity) to bring broadband Internet to rural areas. Developing countries are catching up with developed countries in terms of overall Internet usage. In 1997, nearly three-quarter of the world’s population lived in developing countries but accounted for only 5% of the world’s Internet users. By 2006, the share of developing countries in total Internet usage had risen to over 30%. And also People in our country have to stop this wrongdoing as there could be more victims who might be disheartened about their own endeavors and worse, to their selves which can lead to repercussions. If we truly want peace and harmony in our nation, it must start within ourselves first and not in discriminating other people just to seek for attention and humor.

  117. In today’s generation, discrimination is not new to all of us. We know that it is one of the serious problem facing in our society today. People do discriminate one’s people action if they see something that might be interested to them.
    One of the example of global divide that affected me is in wearing clothes. Why? Because everytime they will see me wearing fit clothes, they always say “hilig magsuot mg fitted na damit bakat naman bilbil” it sounds funny but for me, deep inside it really hurts to hear and it hurts my feelings as well. I know, I don’t have that perfect body but it doesn’t mean that they will discriminate me in that way. That’s why I always prefer wearing loosen clothes everytime I go outside to prevent judgments. In this experience, I can say that global divide is considered as discrimination because it always end up being judge by people.
    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from other countries in North and South because they have different identities mean, different lives and needs and different distinct in their culture and beliefs. What I know is, North is more liberated than south and they accept same sex marriage. While in South, LGBTQ+ people continue to face obstacles at high rates than the rest of the country.

  118. One example of a global divide that affected me at first hand is the advancement of our technology or famously referred to as digital divide. So basically, it is called digital divide because there is an inequality in accessing the information and computer technology that has an impact to one country’s economy or in social aspect. I live in the Philippines, consider as a third world country or let’s say a developing country. Yes we have access to internet, but compare to the other countries we are still poor in this aspect especially talking about the internet speed, it often got me stress and upset. I felt sad but not surprise, there are lot more important problems to address and prioritize in our country, technology is just one of them. Think, what’s stopping the advancement of technology in the Philippines? It will always fall under other issues in our country like poverty, corruption and so on.

    Global divide is not literally or necessarily based on geography. It is more on about the wealthiness between nations (North-South) considering the political and economic aspect of a country. North-South divide are also known as Rich-Poor divide, and the question is the idea of global divide as good as discrimination? My opinion, is no. I think the idea of global divide is not yet “almost already” or can be called a discrimination because global divide just defined or stated the differences between the more developed countries and least developed countries, it is just like stating the fact yet it also has a point because when we define what is discrimination, it is the ability to distinguish between two things but admit it, when we hear this word automatically we think of this as negative and in my point of view, stating the fact is not negative because that is the obvious and without the intention of hurting people that is not a discrimination. In fact, being aware of this global divide can be an eye-opener or can motivate someone to help the country to be more develop.

    Most of the people already aware of the first four letters, first the Lesbian, a female who have romantic or sexual attraction to other females, second is Gay, the opposite of lesbian this time a male have a romantic or sexual attraction other males but gay can be used as a general term for whole lgbt or those who are not straight. Third is Bisexual, a person who have romantic or sexual attraction toward both males and females and the fourth letter is T, the transgender as an umbrella term for people whose gender identity differs with their birth sex. Now what is Q+? “LGBTTTQQIAA” (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, 2/Two-Spirit, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual and Ally) Even before, LGBT exist and as you can see this social movement is growing to express themselves and fight for their rights. Identity is very important for the development of every individual, this lgbtq+ community become a support group to every individual whose having hard time coming out and achieving the self-acceptance, it is also formed to protect each other from violence and discrimination. Countries from North (United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and all countries in Western Europe, as well as the developed countries in Asia such as Japan and South Korea.) and countries from South (developing countries from Africa and Asia like Philippines, Afghanistan, Haiti, Uganda and Yemen) have different culture, beliefs, perception on this matter and I think that’s why it is perceived differently from each nation. For like example and based from my understanding countries like in US they’re more open minded when it comes to this, most of them were liberated while in our country, Philippines is still on the process of accepting this community. Half of the citizens already understand their situation and the other half still stick with their belief especially those who are very religious that have mindset of third sex is unacceptable and a sin that’s why there will be still a discrimination on them, seeing and treating them like a contagious disease. We cannot please everyone after all. What’s important is we are making move, the lgbtq+ rather were putting their effort to gain respect and owning their genuine happiness and place on this earth. Best thing to do is to respect each own belief avoid harming each other.

    I honestly cannot think of a specific issue that resulted into global divide which had affected me first hand although I do think that global divide solely stems from the fact that we are separated by borders, government, and obviously geographical factors. I cannot think of specific issue for I do not pay mind to anything that does not concern me in the most direct manner. In short I don’t care and nor will I care for as long as it doesn’t have MAJOR impact in my way of life or day to day activities.
    I do think that global divide is as good as discrimination because from the word itself , “Divide”, then there is definitely some form of discrimination there somewhere.
    I think the LGBTQ+ is perceived differently depending on where you are from because it would depend on the norms that the country has especially when you consider the norms set by history and religion. Due to differences in beliefs, some countries like the Philippines have grown akin to the thought of discrimination simply because all throughout history, Filipinos have been taught that the third sex is a sin and should not be tolerated. Thus, resulting to a country that is profoundly discrimination the third sex.

    We should not live the world with standard that is made with prejudice. People in the society made discrimination as a norm that we are obliged to accept. This is the dilemma that was given to us but until now we cant end because of one sided judgement. Living in this society, I can say all of us experience this thing what we call “global divide”. In includes the false thought of superiority of gender that must be eliminated. With that thought I remember my friend who was afraid of coming out, fear of judgements that they will receive. Gender should not be a standard for something, we are all equal. Also, one of the issue in our society is age superiority, just because a person is older, they are more capable of doing something, we measured competencies based on age not based on skills and abilities. Global divide and discrimination both share one thing, the one sided judgement. We treat someone base on our impressions where stereotyping always occur. Both being biased to something and closing the minds in one beliefs not thinking if is right or wrong. Global north and global south perceived things differently, including LGBTQ+. We can say that most people that live on global north countries are more accepting when in comes to gender that global south, the reason maybe their country are more liberated than the countries on global south.

This is the dilemma that was given to us but until now we cant end because of one sided judgement. Living in this society, I can say all of us experience this thing what we call “global divide”. In includes the false thought of superiority of gender that must be eliminated. With that thought I remember my friend who was afraid of coming out, fear of judgements that they will receive. Gender should not be a standard for something, we are all equal. Also, one of the issue in our society is age superiority, just because a person is older, they are more capable of doing something, we measured competencies based on age not based on skills and abilities. Global divide and discrimination both share one thing, the one sided judgement. We treat someone base on our impressions where stereotyping always occur. Both being biased to something and closing the minds in one beliefs not thinking if is right or wrong. Global north and global south perceived things differently, including LGBTQ+. We can say that most people that live on global north countries are more accepting when in comes to gender that global south, the reason maybe their country are more liberated than the countries on global south.

  122. For me, religion is one of the examples of global divide because religion has different perspectives when it comes in defining what is wrong and what is right. When I was in my Senior High School, I used to study in New Era University wherein the dominant students were Iglesia Ni Cristo. At first, ofcourse, I am scared because I’m not a member of Iglesia Ni Cristo but then when time gets by I’ve been used to it. Sometimes I felt discrimination when it comes on having different religion and them, as they believe that they are the true religion. But in the end, I still don’t believe that religion defines the person. It is itself.
    LGBTQ+ is accepted in global north because the fact that they don’t much believe in the norms of the religion. I mean they are liberated and while their are here in the world why enjoy and give some time to do what they want or how they feel. While here in the global south, many people are religious that they tend to have more belief in religious acts.

  123. The global movement is indeed as good as the term, “discrimination”. The people who are affected to this phenomena are the people who see them as different by the eyes of society. Nowadays, the people who are different by races, colors, and even the sexual orientation are more strong and confident to show themselves to other people because they realized that concerning other’s opinion is just a trash. I once experienced the so call “global divide”. I have a lot of friends who are in LGBTQ+ community. It is heartbreaking when you see other people cursing and shouting that they are sinners or God won’t love them because they are the product of Satan just because they are not straight or they love their loved one.

    No one is a sinner because of who they really are. God created us the way He thinks that what makes us unique and perfect from other people. So stop spreading hatred instead disseminate love, acceptance, forgiveness, open-mindedness and just appreciate the things we had and have.

  124. In the world full of religions , personalities and cultures. As for religions this is mostly reason that is people arguing about their own “Gods” they are proud of their “Gods” so the other people believes their “Gods” is the real God , Thus sometimes made people violate some other religions just to see how they’re loyal and faithful to their Gods. And for the personalities this sometimes affect on us, because this how we look and see if rejected or accepted the person’s personality , if it’s a trusted person or not and sometimes we based our judges on the looks of the person it’s just sad to see others judging based on the looks but not really knowing the personality of the person have . As for the Culture , thus are the sensitive specially when you don’t know how to great the community in their culture or country . Global divide is good as discrimination, because it’s just as said “Divide” there is no reason to divide , It’s just there are people who are a such a douche , discriminating other peoples gender and disabilities. LGBT are just like us people so why need to discriminate , And most of them had contributed so much in our Community .

  125. 1.) people have different perspectives and level of standards and so Global divide exists, it can be through religions, culture, skin color, socio-economic class, political, geography, schools wars and Gender.

    Since it became a usual thing, Global divide affect everyones life and no one can escaped. We all know that colorism is one of the biggest issue in our todays generation, because most of the people mock others because of having dark/black skin. To the point that only those who possess white skin has a right to be called “beautiful”. It’s just that skin color cannot define if you are beautiful or not because i know that everyone has its own kind of beauty in their own little way.

    2.) i believe that one of the effects of discrimination is Global divide Because it is a kind of treatment where they belong based on their beliefs. Due to discrimination, division of people, cities, and countries are pervade.

    3.) between global north and south, global north accpet LGBTQ+ more because most of the countries belong to global north do not believe in God, most of them are not religious. Unlike countries belong in global south, their lives is filled with their relign ious beliefs and it became the center of their life.

  126. Our world is not perfect, we have different beliefs and different perspective in life. We are not perfect. God didnt create a perfect world and in my perspective God creates the world because of love and he made it with balance in all things so if there is good there is also bad, if there is hatred there is love. It is balance by positive and negative things and i feel bad about the issue between the strength and skills of the men and the women, although we are modernized today there are still some discrimination that still happen in our era. If that’s the case then I would rather chose the be a man so I could be stronger than the other. God created people to be equal, to have a different purpose but discrimination is one of the reason why there are gap in every people. Although people have different beliefs, culture, perspective, skills and knowledge it’ll not be a reason to create boundaries among people. Respecting each other is one of the good values that we must have in our lives. No matter what religion we have, we all still have one creator. No matter what his name, they have still agenda and that is goodness in our heart. Respect and love each other thats the only thing that we must do to stop or avoid descrimination if any part of the world.

    LGBTQ+ perceived differently from countries in north and south because, although some of them are very religious they still accept this community because they’re still human and they believe in equality. Before, they believe that being gay or lesbian is a sin but as the time goes by they realized that these people are still human and deserve to be loved. And later on they also accept and legalized the same sex marriage because they believe that love has no boundaries.

  127. 1. The global divides that really affects me is the use of English language. I’m not that fluent when it comes to english speaking, and sometimes it bothers me if the term that I use is correct. Here in our country, English language is a big deal, because in some people, it is their basis that you’re smart if you are fluent in english. This mentality should stop because for me, it’s non-sense.

    2. Somehow yes. Because Global Divides is divided into two, the North and the South, wherein North is the most wealthy and the richer nations. While the South are those developing countries/nations. I can say that global divides is as good as discrimination because it separates the countries for what they have, like wealth or etc. For me, global divides is just saying that Globa North is way better than Global South in some aspects, just like what i’ve said, the wealth.

    3. I think it is because of the religion. Most likely in the Global South, because in some countries including Philippines, LGBTs are treated unequally because of their beliefs which is according to their religion.

  128. In this modern world, there’s so many factors that divides and affects us. One of the factor is religion, we are in a religious country and unconsciously sometimes we can’t deny that those rules of religion were contradicts in what we believe in. It affects people how we move, how we interact, we forcely do what religion wants not because we want. Global divide triggers discrimination in our society, especially in LGBTQ+ what I said earlier we are in a religious country so this kind of issue is not that easily accept in our society. People didn’t show what truly they are because of fear of judging. They covered themselves to protect what society’s throw to them, and one of the main factor is the religion why people easily notice because of being deviant to the religion.

  129. Discrimination keep on rising and sadly, the insults received by some people keep on getting worse.
    Everyone who suffer because of the disrespectfulness that they have been received by some people saddens me, example of this is gender inequality. Everyone deserves to be in a right circle. People even if it is in the most humorous way, for some it is not okay. No one deserves to be treated like sh*t.

    Honestly, I am so proud for those people who embrace themselves instead, regardless of the pain some people caused them. God did not create us to feel this kind of hatred, we have to learn how to appreciate different kinds of beauty, no matter what your gender, age, skin color, race etc. We should help and enlighten each other. We are created equally, it’s just our perception in life and standards of beauty that made us think we are not.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from the countries in North and from the South, mainly because the countries from the North have considered broad acceptance of homosexuality. Some countries like the Philippines, we are blinded by the beliefs that have been taught to us. We are not yet enlightened by the truth. Let us speak, because we seek for equality and freedom. We should respect every single individual in this world. We need a less of cruelty.

  130. 1. The global divides that really affects me is the use of English language. I’m not that fluent when it comes to english speaking, and sometimes it bothers me if the term that I use is correct.

  132. Each one of us has beliefs, identities, and more that helps us make unique and we don’t want to be labeled just by our gender, race or religion. In a world we live in people are often biased against others outside of their own social group, showing prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination.

    Nationality is a global divide that affected me first hand. Such example would be our own OFW helping to boost our economic status by sending remittances to support their loved ones back home. Being Filipino in general are being stereotyped to perform specific roles in different countries – most of which are considered low-skilled or low-wage work or employment. Another one is with visa requirements waived for certain foreigners. But not everyone can be accorded that privilege, and Filipinos are among those who happen to fall unto that group. Making it even more challenging is to secure a visa and there is a likelihood only a few Filipinos will be able to get it while most will be denied. Because from their perspective, there is a likelihood Filipinos might stay illegally. When in fact all you wanted to do is travel and explore with the financial capacity same as the foreigners.

    Global divide for me is as good as discrimination. For it divides and segregates people but it also has negative sides when we ought to do so. Lastly
    I think that LGBTQ+ perceived differently by the Global North and South because they have different cultures, religions, and beliefs. Considering their differences having a completely distinct culture from each other will make us understand them more. With the global North doesn’t giving much factor with religion but in human rights and how they wanted to be treated and supported while those in the South rely primarily on religion and how the people wanted them to be, making then harder to come out and be who they really are.

  133. One example of global divide mostly for Filipinos is the school/University that they have attended during their College Days or simply the school where they graduated
    Students capabilities are not measured by the institution they came from. This kind of discrimination is very common and usual among the Filipinos, especially when your institution
    doesn’t belong from the top-most hierarchy University in our country. That’s why every student is treated unfairly as always. Living in the fact that you don’t belong from Top Universities may ripped your soul
    tear you apart and incapacitate you. But despite the fact of not being able to meet those standards, you have your own risk and the audacity to be the one, Like what I’ve said before. Your capabilities are not based to where you came from.
    In some case. People will continue to belittle and underestimate you, likewise their first impression from you stays the same, no matter what opinions you got. They will still mock you like they used to.
    Learning is self-explanatory. Student alma-mater doesn’t define their capabilities and strengths but their willingness and dedication at heart.

    LGBTQ were being perceived by some countries but not quite..only countries that approved the massive law.

  134. The Global Divide that I think affected me first hand is the discrimination among genders, that stigma that men are always better than women. I do appreciate men offering their seats to ladies, it may be well intended as a sign of courtesy and respect. But for me, it can be a sign of weakness for my gender, as that men will always give way and sacrifice for women.

    Global Divide is just the same as discrimination. Putting labels on people, and judging them based on their beliefs and origins should never be the default mindset of the majority of people. To be one as a world means to understand that we are all uniquely different, and appreciate the gifts we each possess.

    People’s perception regarding the LGBTQ+ may be varied, but the fact that we are accepting them as part of the norm is a good indication of having common global ideologies. The trend now is to not judge one’s personality solely based on his or her preferences, but character is the key. We may be few steps away from achieving harmony in the world.

  135. Some people in the society belittle women because of their thinking that a woman is weak and vulnerable. Ages before, women are label to be that low and that their only purpose is to serve their husband and simply be at home. Up until now they think that men are superior in women.
    For me, this is one affects me the most because as a woman, some situations in life other peple judge you or will tell you that you “can’t” because you are a woman. I am proud that I am a woman. Women give birth to human kind. They can do what men can do. God created us equally no matter what the gender is. Everyone have different skills and talent that makes them unique.

    How we look to the things and judgement around us affects on how we live our life. Despite being discriminated, you have to look it in a positive way. If others will tell you, you can’t, prove them that you can. If they tell you that being a woman is being a less of a person, show them what you can do to change, help and show respect to other people. Even tho the world is full of negativity and judgement, always chose to be kind. Choose to be understanding that not everyone will look at you that you perfect. (although there is no such thing as perfect) Show love to people that trying to put you down. Maybe you will not get that praise that you want to hear, but atleast hope that there are still wonderful people.

    LGBTQ+ is percieved differently from different countries because people has different belief about the third sex, being one of the LGBTQ+ is very difficult because of in some situations, their own family can’t accept them. They are afraid to come out and let there color shine bright because they are afraid to be judged. Acceptance, many people don’t understand or agree with the third sex also because many people believe that God created Adam and Eve, a man and a woman. Gender discrimination is very evident around the world, in the Philippines being gay or lesbian is also used as an insult to another person around them or to the people they are with. When a man cries they would tell you “Are you a gay? Only gays and women cries” and when a women dressed-up with t-shirt, pants and a sneakers with a cap eventually they will ask you “Why are you dressed-up like that? Are you aa lesbian?” Being a LGBTQ+ should not be used as an insult, because third sex is not a joke to some people who are LGBTQ+, many people who committed suicide are those people who are bullied for being what they are.

    Even tho this generation is very open to topics like these, they are still some that will never understand and judge others because of differences. Let us embrace the uniqueness of one another. We can truly be happy, if we only show love,respect and acceptance. As a teenager, I will hope for a better world and be part of a change that will make the world show and give love that everyone deserves. It may be a long journey but I know that a single step can make a change.

  136. Sexual preference is one of those debatable issue. But the question is, does it make sense if we condemn someone for their unique or what seems unacceptable sexual preference? Can we help them realize their sexual identity by telling them that their desires and action must depend on their reproductive organs? Does it feel better knowing that you’ve changed how someone acts because your words were powerful enough instead of letting them live the life the way their hearts want it to be? If you don’t think so, then it’s time to be a little tolerance. Because the world lacks tolerance, that’s why we have rebels, and unexpressed personality. We’ve set tons of don’ts that people, especially those who struggle with sexual identity find it more complicated being real. If your neighbor’s a gay, it’s none of your business, if your sibling is a gay then just let them feel accepted, you never know how hard it is for them from being confused with their preference to coming out and being bullied. You tolerate people because that’s how the world works, you have to accept what you can never change. If you disagree because it’s against the biblical explanation, the more you are responsible for making them feel loved instead of making them unloved and condemned. We all violate the biblical laws everyday, but hating the LGBT community doesn’t make you less of a sinner. They don’t care how much you know about what the bible says about sexual immorality, until they knew how much you care about them. So if you want to be listened to, you must listen first.

  137. I experienced global divide when I was senior highs school. I have four best friends who are totally rich, so we are five in total. I also have classmates who told us that they should kick me out in our group because she knows that I’m not like them and she also knew that I live in a squatters’ area. I know that she only said those words just to tease me and to make fun of me with my other classmates or maybe she was joking, but deep inside I was offended and hurt. I don’t know what to do so I just smiled, trying to pretend that it didn’t affect me at all because I know that if I show her that I was affected, she will tease me more and I don’t want to be in trouble with anyone. I want to prove them that we may not have much money, but we have good attitude and we are good people.

    For me, global divide is somehow discriminating because you will not be able to express yourself truly to everyone. Being compared and having a different side is where the discrimination begins. Being compared because of your status whether you’re rich or poor or being judge by your gender and by your appearance is unfair and unequal. For me, global divide really affects each other.

    I think that some countries accept the LGBTQ+ community, mostly in the northern countries. There are some countries which is very open for homosexual people as they respect and accept the personality, gender and the identity of each person. But, in the southern countries, there are only few who accepts and supports the LGBTQ+ community because of traditions and religions, like for example same sex marriage, In Catholic Communities, they believe that the act of being homosexual is considered as a sin because it’s like you’re showing that you as a person didn’t like the gender that God gave you and it is a sign of disrespect to God. Mostly in southern countries, each nation has its own beliefs and traditions especially when it comes to gender.

  138. There are many reasons for Global Divide, it can be through culture, gender, skin color and religion. But for what I’ve experienced is the discrimination based on gender. because in today’s society, women are treated differently from men. People will always say that you can not do that just because you’re a girl. We live in a world that Girls should be soft and sensitive, and boys should be strong.

    Indeed, Global divide can also be a form of discrimination. People tend to judge based on the culture, beliefs and physical appearance. Everyone of us has their own flaws and imperfections but we don’t have the right to hurt someone just because he/she is different.

    I think LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from countries belonging to the global north maybe becuase the countries in the global north are already developed countries and they have been tackled the said issue.

  139. We are experiencing Global Divide is because of Gender Inequality. We are living in this pool of mess that everyone can relate to. Man and Woman are viewed differently based on their capabilities and knowledge. Woman often referred as weak, gentle, dependent and the society prefer woman to stay at home, while man are viewed as strong, independent, and superior to all. Woman are expected to manage the household chores while Man will do the hard work, where different sex are allowed to marry but as the time goes by, there is now an LGBT. LGBT’s are viewed as plague and sinner on some people because they believed that there’s only 2 genders. On this generation, we must be very sensitive regarding to different genders because whatever gender we are contributing to the betterment of the world. LGBTQ+ are viewed differently because some of the countries in the world know how to accept each other opinions and how they can fully accept LGBTQ+ in their society. It just a matter of acceptance, opinion and at the same time, love because after all they are all humans that need support in their gender preferences.
    And as of Global divide i can considered that as a discrimination because we are only different from our perspective based on our knowledge and culture. Global divides occur relevantly on our everyday lives because of the people that gives their final judgement to the topic on trend on social media and other platforms that human will be able to communicate or exchange thoughts.

  140. Inequality, as high and rising, threatens all human rights. It’s not just about women or men. It’s about the people who are deprived of equal rights. Culturally and socially, inequality occurs across several dimensions. These are gender, race, ethnicity, religion, caste, and sexuality. People should have equal opportunity to claim their rights and human rights principles should be applied to all persons justifiably. It is significant most especially within developing countries, where signs of injustice and unequal opportunity are much evidently seen by the powerless people.
    I am with this. Though I might have not experienced severe deprivation of human rights as much as other people have taken, I am much empathic or aware of the difficulties and pain they have acquired. Arrogance and ignorance, both hurt my feelings. These are the traits of humans that will hurt your soul. Arrogance, this is like making you worthless while ignorance won’t help you take your worth back. Many arrogant people who treat themselves as elite and godlike really step someone’s ego for a pleasurable desire and approval for what they think is right, while those ignorant people are also at fault for being silent and not sympathizing and giving a damn. Maybe, I just firmly believe that human rights, no matter how much or less severe they have suffered in their life, will just be only obtained if there’s an absence of arrogance and ignorance while there are love and care in the heat of embrace.
    The most common group of people who suffer from inequality is the LGBTQ+. Acceptance and recognition in society are what they wish for, but people are afraid of what they don’t understand. LGBTQ+ is perceived differently in the north and south. Global North are more open to accepting those people, in fact, they have legalized the marriage of couples with the same sex. On the other hand, Global South are holding on to their precious religious influences taking aside the supposed rights of the members of that group. Global North and Global South should learn from each other by balancing human rights and setting aside their cultural norms and religious beliefs. In that way, respect will be earned by everyone despite the differences in every one of us.
    Discrimination, for me, is just one of the reasons why the global divide is existing. Deprivation of human rights and discrimination of “who you are” really builds the wall of inequality, which results to unconnectedness in every part of the world. It’s not an enough reason to judge others based on what you have and what they don’t have or what they have and what you don’t have. Everyone has flaws. But everyone is undeniably unique. That’s why we don’t have to belittle others just to feel empowered. Let’s help each other fight the inequality in this world. Everyone has the right to feel happy anyway.

  141. According to LUMEN learning, “global divide describes global disparities, primarily between developed and developing countries, in regards to access for computing and information resources such as the Internet and the opportunities derived from such access”. As with a smaller unit of analysis, this gap describes an inequality that exists, referencing a global scale.

    What comes into your mind, when you hear the word ANTHROPOLOGY? Yes! It exactly refers to the study of human races and behavior. Social and Cultural Anthropology refers to the norms and values in a particular society. Maybe you are now asking yourself, how Anthropology involves with global divide? Or how does sovereign states practicing global divides? Because in this blog I will be introducing the “Inequality of human races, values and traditions in sovereign countries”.

    But first, let me name the variety of sovereign countries/states such; Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Azerbaijan etc. As you notice most of them are in Western part of the globe. Western countries are not condemning gender state but they practice human races’ Inequality and social status discrimination.

    The best example for this global divide was the late history of African-American Slavery and discrimination to the White one. Let me insert a brief information about their black history.

    In the late 1619, White European settlers first brought Africans to the continent to serve as slaves. The fate of slaves in the United States would divide the nation during the Civil War. And after the war, the racist legacy of slavery would persist, spurring movements of resistance, including the Underground Railroad, the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Selma to Montgomery March. Through it all, black leaders, artists and writers would emerge and help shape the character and identity of a nation. *

    With that, we can say that the global divides starts with racism and social status discrimination.

    Is global divide as good as discrimination? *

    For me, extremely Yes! The division between two to more races is considered as discrimination. It is because division is not be implemented or practice with the ideology of discrimination. Imagine the image of beggar living in a compound of luxurious people, is it possible to be? Do you think the luxurious one let it to happen? I doubt if you say yes. Look at this picture*

    Global division is not only pertains to the Status discrimination it also pertains to the gender inequality (LGBTQ+).*
    LGBTQ+ community is composed of the people that are normatively supports same-sex relationships or the third gender. Global South countries are not condemning this kind of oraganization, maybe because the contries belongs to South are liberated or use individualism values. However in Global North there is a discrimination with this community because of collectivism and Christianity.

  142. Nature of the people is to judge something, weather we not already know what the whole story is specially on this generation the millenials, phenomenological issue now is the gender inequality, just like for example, we easily judge the teenage boy the he is a gay, but we could now know what are his environment when he was a child, if what are the parenting style implemented on their family that a factors on what he as of now, as a psychology major, we must know the importance of sensitivity of an individuals nature, norms or what of his/her gender or classification on this cruel world. Our world are full of uniqueness maybe on our self there is a something unique on us, but we not yet noticed it.

  143. A criticizer’s house is this world, and ourselves is the one who is working in out sometimes we misused the right critics to other people and lead into discrimination, we tend to despise other’s tho the word unique is existing, yes the word unique is existing in our world but sometimes we forget that. We still comparing ourselves to others, talent, intelligence, gender, physical appearances and many more, we’re still judging others because of our differences. This society’s number problem is discrimination in any aspects of our lives that why we have a hard time to move forward and improve everything.

  144. Global Divide is an inequality living among us and even if we don’t notice it, it affects us everyday. First thing that comes to my mind when I think about my first hand experience of the global divide is the internet service here in the Philippines. Unlike in the first world countries that has a super fast internet connection, our internet connection here can be easily compared to a turtle, because as we all know, it is sooooo slow. It made me feel so little as a citizen of this country, because even in the connection, Philippines is so behind.

    For me, the idea of global divide is as good as discrimination, because when you label someone or something, it lasts long. Labeling of countries such as the North and South divide or the Rich and Poor divide simply shows how people all over the world wants to compete with each other. The world must be united, and together, we should stop discrimination by pulling each other up.

    I think the LGBTQ+ community is perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from countries from Global South is because, each divide has its own beliefs, norms and society.

  145. We live in a world full judgemental people and a society where everything is big deal and that is why most of us try to change on who and what we really are because what really matters most for some are the opinion of some people to them and that is the most toxic and sad part. One of the main problem or issue here in our country is gender discrimination or gender inequality. Gender inequality is a social problem which causes unfair treatment in society between different genders. But there are also a lot of examples of global divide may it be in gender, skin color, nationality, religion, and also in grammar. In my own experience, there’s this one time we’re having a family dinner and me as a person/girl I always wear shorts, sleeveless, or dress whenever I attend to some family gatherings or occasions because for me, it’s comfy. Fast forward my grandmother got mad at me because of my outfit that time, I was wearing shorts but not short shorts and midriff top not to mention that my grandma is super conscious especially when it comes to clothes and I have also experienced to be catcalled. I was so pissed that time. I mean what’s wrong with my clothes? “Eh dito ako comfortable eh”. I mean dude come on, it’s 2018! Why don’t we just respect each other na lang instead of judging or criticizing each other, right? This is the reason why some people especially teenagers are afraid to show what they want and who they really are. They are afraid to be judge, they are afraid that their family might won’t accept them. I have read and heard a lot of news about people committing suicide and one of the most or top reason why they do this is they were judged by the society (bullying) and as a Psychology student I am really bothered to this. I want to help, I want to tell them they shouldn’t be afraid of they really are. You’re lesbian? Its okay! You’re gay? Bisexual? Or part of LGBTQ+? That’s alright. We are not perfect! If you are afraid of what will other people will say to you, don’t mind them. As long as wala kang tinatapakang tao. We only live once and we should live our life to the fullest.

  146. I experienced global divide when I was senior high school. I have four best friends who are totally rich, so we are five in total. I also have classmates who told us that they should kick me out in our group because she knows that I’m not like them and she also knew that I live in a squatters’ area. I know that she only said those words just to tease me and to make fun of me with my other classmates or maybe she was joking, but deep inside I was offended and hurt. I don’t know what to do so I just smiled, trying to pretend that it didn’t affect me at all because I know that if I show her that I was affected, she will tease me more and I don’t want to be in trouble with anyone. I want to prove them that we may not have much money, but we have good attitude and we are good people.

    For me, global divide is somehow discriminating because you will not be able to express yourself truly to everyone. Being compared and having a different side is where the discrimination begins. Being compared because of your status whether you’re rich or poor or being judge by your gender and by your appearance is unfair and unequal. For me, global divide really affects each human being.

    I think that some countries accept the LGBTQ+ community, mostly in the northern countries. There are some countries which is very open for homosexual people as they respect and accept the personality, gender and the identity of each person. But in the southern countries, there are only few who accepts and supports the LGBTQ+ community because of traditions and religions, like for example same sex marriage. In Catholic communities, they believe that the act of being homosexual is considered as a sin because it’s like you’re showing that you as a person didn’t like the gender that God gave you and it is a sign of disrespect to God. Mostly in southern countries, each nation has its own beliefs and traditions especially when it comes to gender.

  147. Racism, this made me feel bad for everyone because we all know that every one of us is different, but we intend to make others feel bad about their looks like regarding on their skin color, height, weight, features of their face and such.

    As for me, I disagree with the idea of a global divide that it is good as discrimination because the global divide is as an economic and social inequality with regard to access to, use of, or impact of information and communication technologies. The divide within countries such as the digital divide in the United States may refer to inequalities between individuals, households, businesses, or geographic areas, usually at different socioeconomic levels or other demographic categories. The divide between different countries or regions of the world is referred to as the global digital divide, examining this technological gap between developing and developed countries on an international scale while discrimination is showing us how the world is toxic for not having respect for others. It is the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex that’s why they’re not the same.

    In reviewing the LGBTQ+, I think it is recognized because not that they are the trend but they create a trend. Maybe in the past years, LGBTQ+ is not yet fully accepted in the whole globe but it is in the global north, they are liberated and even acknowledge LBGTQ+ for having a marriage with your same gender. As for the global south, it is continuing in accepting it by people because there are people who have a program in giving the people awareness about the LGBTQ+.

    The internet connection, well almost everyone is affected by it. It feels terrible I guess I must live with that for the rest of my life hahaha well the government especially in barangays they have more projects for waiting shed, basketball tournaments, and renovation of road even it is still okay.
    Perhaps China is one of third world countries! Hahaha isn’t it ironic FREAKING China is a third world country when China is one of the most powerful country in this freaking world!
    I think LGBTQ is perceived differently from global north and south because of the information that the people have, culture which religion is one of the biggest reason why people perceived LGBTQ differently.

  149. I would like to emphasize our country’s service in terms of telecommunucation – our internet speed. Many are affected by this gap, many of us are dissatisfied by this fact, we are but one of the countries that have the slowest internet speed. There are services that offers a fair internet speed, but for an unfair price. Even so, when our internet speed is compared to the countries within our region, Southeast Asia, we still have a long way to go. I felt envy, wondered what it feels like to have a fair internet speed. But we should be patient because there are upcoming plans in the telecommunication industry.

    In my opinion, the idea of global divide and discrimination are synonymous, but not on a bad way. Global divide is a gap or the diffirence between a country’s capabilities from another country, and as for discrimination, it states that it is the ability to recognize the difference between things that are in good quality and those that are not.

    Members of the LGBTQ+ are seen by many as an obscene figure. I think that the LGBTQ+ is perceived differently because of stereotyping. Each of us are unique, we have different personalities, and we have different ideals. It is unfair to those who have a kind heart when they are treated the same way of their kind.

  153. I think an example of global division that affects me as a person is dependency, because living in a nation that is collectivist makes me more dependent in different ways. As a child it is normal to be dependent since the company that we had is our guide in our growth. But, as we grow older everything has to change. Even the way we manage things. We suppose to be independent in helping ourselves coping with daily struggles and challenges. Yet, if you do so, you will experience discrimination in a way that authorities will control you. It is not legal in our nation to disrespect elder’s order. If you disobey, you are a disgrace for their culture. That is how ones mind set was built in this nation.

    A person discriminates base on their own culture and beliefs. Therefore, i think that the idea of global division and discrimination are the same. Besides the fact that in every division there is comparison, the idea is similar because the division itself makes the people to judge others action or way of showing itself base on how they being raised and what are their beliefs. It was planted in their mind from the very beginning that they must follow your tradition. If one oppose on it, it will be questioned and be judged. For they are not knowledgeable and not accepting others idea. Opposing nation’s custom might lead to discrimination.

    We are divided in different religions and beliefs that is why LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from other countries belonging to Global north and from countries from Global south. Some countries are liberated and they can do whatever they want in regards to political rules. It made them feel of exposing themselves, what they feel, and what they really want. For some that is highly catholic country, third-sex must be secluded because it is antagonistic.

  154. After I’ve read articles about global divide (north south gap) I would that the biggest effect of it not only to me but for our country is poverty. North South gap as i’ve understand it is North being the first world aka as the rich part whereas the South part is the poor side. Poverty can hit everyone but for us who are in third world country it is much worse than those who are in North side.
    Divide, discrimination, gap whatever you call it I think it shouldn’t be there in the first place, I just don’t like the idea that we have this “invisible” almost permanent idea that there has to be some gap/difference among us which I think sucks because personally (as naive it may sounds) I don’t care if someone is richer or more famous or he/she looks attractive than I am what matters to me is how people respect other people.
    LGBT is being discriminated all around the world I think it just differs by how severe people can be mean or absurd towards the gender of some people. Countries from the north tend to be individualistic in other words the just care about self growth that is why being a queer/gay isn’t much of a big deal (not really) the only thing that they care about is how good you are in what you are doing. Meanwhile on the other side of the globe people tend to be practice the collectivism culture, now while collectivism is known for its greater good or for its main “meaning” the “no one left behind” culture the not so good part of it is they value their “image” of their family, so being gay/lesbian is considered to be a disgrace which in my opinion is such a joke, parents who belittle or abused their child for being what they are/what they want should be a disgrace and not them.

  155. One good example of Global Divide is between rich and poor. We extremely experience this nowadays because of discrimination and judgment of other people. A lot of people will judge what you have in life, what kind of lifestyle you have, where you live, how big your house is, how beautiful your auto maybe, what kind of profession do you have and many more. It is very true that teenagers in this modern world pick their friends depending if they are rich or not. So usual word that Filipinos use is “Sosyal”. They want to be in trend and unfortunately judge other teenagers that are not like them. In my own experience, it can hurt someone by being in this type of scenario. It is not easy to be judged for the life you have for we don’t have to be always the same with others. We have the things that other don’t and we don’t have the things that other people have. That’s what Global Divides connects with Discrimination. I think, we cannot stay away from the issues of LGBT+ within Global North and Global South. It is because we don’t have the same mindset. We don’t think the same way as others. People have different opinions and it is based on their own understanding and experience. Personally, I am supporting the LGBT+ community and I have nothing against it. Yet, we cannot stop the discrimination as I’ve said because we have different point of views.

  156. Many people believe discrimination has made big steps forward, but has it really? If it has, why do people still get turned down, receive hate mail, or get ridiculed simply because they differ from each other. I guess these are questions we must ask ourselves. I guess you could also ask yourself if you have ever called anybody a name, looked at them different or judged them when you did not even know them or understand them. You may be thinking “That is not discrimination,” but, in fact, it is.

  157. Our world has always been faced with the problem of discrimination. It is one of the most discussed topics nowadays and throughout history. In all countries there is most likely at least one type of discrimination that affects different groups of people it can be the religion, color of skin, or gender, etc. Discrimination produces immense effects in the psychological, social, political, and economic domains. Whether intended or not, the effects are compounded by the loss of self-worth, a sense of alienation from the wider society, political dis empowerment, and economic inequalities.

    One of the example of global divide that I have experienced is body shaming. Back when I was a child I was really a fat little girl and because of my body I became one of the victims of the bullies. It was really hard for me to face all their cynicism it lowers my self-esteem and I became introvert because of body shaming. But as I get old I realized that I should not listen to them. They should not be the reason for me to stop living the life that really makes me happy. So instead of listening to all their criticism I decided to make them as my inspiration in achieving all my goals in life. In that way I can be the person who I really wanted to be.

    Global divide and discrimination is just the same. These two are both causing people a hindrance to show who they really are. All of us has our own characteristics and not because others are different from you it doesn’t mean that you can already discriminate or judge them. Learn to accept every flaws that your fellow individual have. Always find ways to embrace and celebrate your own identity the strength and beauty of you being you.

    I think the reason why LGBTQ+ is being perceived differently from countries belonging to Global North and from countries from Global South is because they all have different cultures, religion and beliefs. There are countries where being married with the same sex is already okay but there are also some countries who’s still not okay with it because of some reason like what I’ve said it can be because of their culture, religion and beliefs.

  158. Well there’s the discrimination but there are a lot. For example is the internet use. Here in the Philippines we are currently experiencing slow internet connection, while in some others provides the fastest. Since they have the better access, they also provide their people a lot better communication and information they needed. This proves that many countries can bypass older Internet technology and infrastructure, coupled with booming economies which allow vastly more people to get online.
    I have never seen what’s good in discrimination, so definitely, I don’t consider global divide as a good one. Well, discrimination means unfairly treating a person differently from others. So as global divide, which provide gap between the rich industrialized countries and the poor developing ones. It gives the rich industrialized countries (north) to dominate over the poor ones in different aspects, be it economic, technological, social and global competitiveness etc.. While the poor developing ones (south) tend to be dependent on the rich industrialized countries to have access to different needs. The global divide also contributes to the inequality of access to goods and services available through technology. Computers and the Internet provide users with improved education, which can lead to higher wages; the people living in nations with limited access are therefore disadvantaged.
    We all have different views in life, that’s why I think LGBTQ+ is perceived differently in countries from global north and global south. We all have different views and perspective in life, it can depend on our culture and tradition and/or our own perception of things. Global North countries find it acceptable while on the Global South it is not. The rich industrialized doesn’t make much fuss about it unlike the poor developing ones.

  159. The one example of a global divide is gender inequality. It shows that men and women are not equal. And also if you are a member of LGBTQ+ they will discriminate and disrespect you. Philippines is one of the religious and Catholic country that’s why not all everyone will accept you unless you are a straight men or women. Global divide is a form of discrimination. Because not all countries are open to LGBTQ+. There is a lot of inequality and discrimination that happens. Global-North believes that they need to follow what is their religion, tradition and culture. While Global-South believes in equality.

  160. Global inequality, because we all know that we are all created by our almighty God. And all of us have a Sin in ourselves. Plus everyone is not perfect. The fact that theres something wrong or what you see in the way of their living should not be discriminate because it makes them felt embarrassed. What I feel for them is the same as well because everytime that we discriminate people it makes my heart pound slowly and I can feel it because i am have pity for them.

    No, Because for me Global divide us just to show some negative sight. How can we call it a good discrimination if theres the Global inequality, Living in a poor country, Discrimination between Gender, etc. Maybe we can call it a good discrimination if there’s a positive effect in it. But i don’t think that it will happen.

  161. One of the example of global divide that affects me as a filipino is we Filipinos are being criticised by other countries because of the quality of education and also because of economic status. Philippines is known of one of the developing countries and our country is being criticised as one of the poorest country. For me global divide is not a good idea because it simply discriminate the countries especially the countries in south who is still developing. The LGBTQ is more acceptable in countries in global north because in countries in north it is legal or they accept people who are members of LGBTQ not like in countries in global south the members of LGBTQ are being discriminate by their own country man because of their gender.

  162. This advocacy is needed because it will serve us as an opening eye in today’s generation wherein discrimination is very common in all society. It becomes natural to humans to discriminate people against each other whether it is intentional or not. And this kind of advocacy will provide help to promote that racism has no place that everyone are perfectly beautiful of who and what they are. So, let’s stop thinking differently to others just because they are overweight, poor, or having the different religious beliefs and the like. We must respect each other because we are all human beings and should be treated equal. If Jose Rizal were alive today, I think that he would uphold this advocacy as he himself had also experienced racial discrimination way back in his time. He did not support the belittling of Spaniards against Filipinos and perhaps even today, as the unjust treatment of people on different races, dispositions, and beliefs still exists and evolved, he would still oppose it. Rizal did not want the Filipino people to be disharmonized and would still not want it up until now. 

  163. WEEK 6
    The global digital divide is a special case of the global divide, which can be understood when I talk about me. I am the girl who lived in Saudi Arabia and my relatives who lived all their lives in my mother country Eritrea and the difference between us. The global digital divide focuses on the fact that the Internet may develop unevenly in The world in Saudi Arabia There is a very developed technology and education. When I get the chance to talk to my relatives, they do not know the simplest technology I have used in my daily life and if they know it, their access is difficult. The Internet is so bad there computer and smart phones. Non-existent! I hope that they will have this life, which is their simplest human
    ‎‏rights
    I think that the Idea of global divide is somehow similar to discrimination It’s all for me considered as social inequality the research are distributed on the basis of religion , race , ethnicity , gender and age the economics of the world have developed and unevenly historically some parts of the world were left mired in poverty and diseases while others began to reduce property and diseases in a wholesale basis this was represented by a type of north south divide , which means that countries are divided to 2 parts pool or developing and the rich or developed countries so the inequality is found almost in every society is shaped by geographical location or citizenship status which I found it not fair because no one choose his or her place of birth and his society and his nationality
    I think that there is a strong relationship between a country religiosity and the pinion about homosexuality there is no acceptance of homosexuality in countries where religion is central of people lives , I think that every survey or study will show that middle east countries or Muslim countries will be the most against homosexuality , meddle east countries is considered as a global North countries next to Africa and developing Asia
    but even when the most of north countries follow Christianity And many of the church take the position that homosexuality sexual activity is a sinful
    some churches accepted homosexuality now perform same-sex weddings or blessings. Furthermore, many churches in the United Methodist Church in the US are choosing to officiate and bless same-sex marriage despite denomination-wide restrictions In addition, in the United States Conservative Judaism, Reform Judaism, and Reconstructionist Judaism now welcome LGBT worshippers and perform same-sex weddings.

    One of the exmaples of globe divide that I think is the very common in our country is Global inequality. In this age their are still many people who discriminate others, they think that they are perfect. They dont treat people equal they always think that they are higher than any other people. We are all Gods creation, we should treat each other equally and fairly.
    Global divide is there for us to know the negative and postive side of a country, so I think the answer to that question is no, why? Because a discrimination will never be good. Discrimination is every .
    Every country has a different perpective, culture and tradition. Some country do not tolerate lgbtq+ but some of them dont care.

  165. Discrimination keep on rising and sadly, the insults received by some people keep on getting worse.
    Everyone who suffer because of the disrespectfulness that they have been received by some people saddens me, example of this is gender inequality. Everyone deserves to be in a right circle. No one deserves to be treated like shit.

    Honestly, I am so proud for those people who embrace themselves instead, regardless of the pain some people caused them. God did not create us to feel this kind of hatred, we have to learn how to appreciate different kinds of beauty, no matter what your gender, age, skin color, race etc. We should help and enlighten each other. We are created equally, it’s just our perception in life and standards of beauty that made us think we are not.

    LGBTQ+ is perceived differently from the countries in North and from the South, mainly because the countries from the North have considered broad acceptance of homosexuality. Some countries like the Philippines, we are blinded by the beliefs that have been taught to us. We are not yet enlightened by the truth. Let us speak, because we seek for equality and freedom. We should respect every single individual in this world. We need a less of cruelty.

  166. Nowadays, we are like living in a world full of cameras. People take pictures and then they will judge it, as if they knew everything about that picture. Many people nowadays are easily get judged by others by their race, gender, physical appearance, etc. They feel like they are secluded and outcasted. This advocacy is what we all need right now, for us to be aware that we should appreciate, love, and respect everyone for who we are;

  167. Global disparities regarding access to fast internet connection affect me most. The internet is expanding very quickly and not all countries, especially developing countries, are able to keep up with the constant changes. It may be true that we are given access to technology but the Philippines suffers from low quality services and computers. There have been times I failed to comply with deadlines because of poor internet connection; did not get to respond on time to emergency or important messages; and was not able to meet halfway with my loved ones from afar. Facetime or video call is our only means of catching a glimpse of each other but poor service brings us to seeing pixelated versions of ourselves and hearing unnerving and choppy voices when we try to speak or tell stories.

    If global divide is set at par with discrimination, it would be in the aspect of homosexuality. There is greater acceptant in more secular and affluent countries. This acceptance is particularly widespread in countries where religion is less central in people’s lifestyle. There are nations that looks down on the members of the LGBTQI+ community. These individuals are often given unfair, sometimes even inhumane, treatment be it by their families, strangers, employers, and other egoistic persons in the society.

    A greater percentage of people in the countries of North America, Europe, and Latin America embrace homosexuality. A few countries in Asia or the Pacific are open to this as well. In contrast, those in the Middle East and Africa are still ignorant towards this movement. With that, I think the LGBTQI+ is perceived differently in countries from the Global North and Global South because of the distinct differences in culture, belief, and most especially, religion.

  168. One of my experience in global divide happened during my 7th grade. I came from a small island or municipality of Cuyo, Palawan where we are a bit far from Puerto Princesa City, so it’s a rural area. When I transferred school on my 7th grade I am so excited to meet new friends and to learn new things from an urban area. But little do I know that it’s not that easy to adjust. I was once laughed because of the color of my skin, my dialect and even my not-so-good pronunciation in english. So it end up to be a bit terrifying to go to school. But I did cope up with them, their way of life and I did improve myself.

    I think global divide can sometimes be a form of discrimination. It will somehow make you feel that you are different from others. And there will be time where you’ll compare yourself from others. It’s just give you divisions that will make you feel you’re being left behind.

    I think the reason for the different perception of the global north from global south regarding the issue of LGBTQ+ is because of their beliefs and religion. People from the south give so much emphasis on their beliefs and religion that’s why it’s not easier for them to accept this kind of issue. While in global north where majority of them are not that into religion and a bit liberated then it will not going to be a big deal for them.

  169. Yes it is. Global divide is just as same as Discrimination. Global Division in terms of race, gender and ethnicity, is somewhat horrible to see. Everybody should learn that there is nothing wrong for being honest to themselves and being who they are. We must learn how to coexist not to pretend they are not like us. Acceptance is the key to the freedom of LGBTQ+ folks out there. Humans, we are more better than this.

  170. Global digital divide, for now as i observed to our country is that the gap between the community in terms of the gender straight and not straight people, and also the people whose not communicating or socialized to the society but instead they’re using their gadgets, talked,play, and even sleep with their gadgets, its simply make the global not to be united.. in terms of gender, all we can do is to accept and respect of what they wanted to be.. the use of technology? It should be lessen so that the communication to the public will not be fade.
