Sexual orientation discrimination means disparity based on gender in different spheres. Many parents think that their sons can supplement their family income and support them in their old age. Since the parents nurture a misconception as regards their female children, gender discrimination begins at birth and it goes on throughout the rest of their lives. People make inequality between the male and female with regard to food, education, decision making etc. The women of our country don't even have any right to make decisions regarding marriage or having children. These disparities leave long-term impact on their body, mind and social status. As a result, they suffer from malnutrition, anemia and inferiority complex. They develop a sense of self-effacement and self-denial. This is very detrimental to the flourish of a nation. So anyhow we have to stop it if we want to get a developed nation. In order to eliminate sexual orientation discrimination we need to raise mass awareness. We also have to uproot social strictures, religious misinterpretation, dogmatism, and to change our attitude towards the girls.
