  • Classism

Common discrimination in teens are:


Racism

when someone is treated negatively due to their color of their pigment or where they originate from. What's known is that not all skin colors are treated equally in our society. Racism can be represented as bigger than just one person, and is a whole system that is trying to put a group of people down (known as systemic racism.)

Racism-



Sexism

  • when a person is treated badly due to their sex, gender, or perceived gender. Shockingly, equal rights between men and women is nonexistent. Even if we’ve come a long way, there is still a long way to go. Therefore, when we talk about sexism, we recognize the discrimination towards women.

Sexism-



Homophobia

  • When someone is treated harshly because of their sexual orientation. unfortunately, in todays society if someone identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or two-spirit, they can face harassment. The behavior usually comes out of the belief that being gay is wrong, or that if someone really wanted to, they could change and not be gay anymore. This is simply not true! Can you imagine if someone who was straight was expected to all of a sudden completely change who they were attracted to and be gay? It doesn’t seem too likely does it? And there is nothing wrong with being gay anyways! People have the right to be attracted to whoever they want, and live as whatever gender they want, free of harassment.

Homophobia-



Classism

  • When someone is discriminated because of their social level or their economic status. We know that in our society a lot of times people get caught up in valuing how much money they have, or what brand clothes they wear, and what type of car they drive. This doesn’t make a great person. It’s how you treat the people that are around you as well as how to stay true to yourself that makes you a great person.
