Answer preview

In the future, I would like to focus on the prevalence of Homophobia bullying instances in colleges, its impacts on the people perceiving themselves as either gays, lesbians, or bisexuals, and how this problem can be addressed. The paper will discuss how sports body policies and codes have contributed to stereotypes of homosexuals (Georgiou, Patsantaras, & Kamberidou,2018). The athletic bodies’ sports codes are highly orthodox and stereotypical of masculinity or femininity. This paper will evaluate different approaches that can be applied to address this problem, the natural equality in a college of high school sports activities.
