Perception of Students toward Gender Marginalization at Bestlink College of the Philippines-Bulacan: Toward A Guide
Keywords:perception, gender, marginalization
In the Philippines, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community continues to be oppressed through various forms of cruelty by society at large primarily because of misconception and ignorance. This study analyzed the perception of the students toward gender marginalization, including bullying, harassment, and discrimination. Based on a review of related literature on perception toward gender marginalization, unstructured interviews were conducted with 20 respondents, and the researchers surveyed potential students. The analysis of the responses showed a positive perception of the features of LGBTQ students and showed a possible solution to address the bullying, harassment, and discrimination that these students experience. The results indicated that experiencing bullying, harassment, and discrimination affects gender marginalization, which can be prevented and minimized by conducting guidelines to follow and support the implementation of the possible solution.
