Modern audiences now demand diversity in popular culture that reflects the variety of life, rather than omitting entire communities from film and TV. People relate to fictional characters, and when everyone is fairly represented it means everyone has a voice and a welcome place in society. Here are five excellent examples of LGBT representation and five that aged poorly. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a show ahead of its time. At the time, the addition of an LGBT character was a risky move but fans reacted to Willow Rosenberg's Allison Hannigan sexuality with an overwhelmingly positive reception. Willow was already a fan-favorite by the time she discovered she was gay during season four, after falling in love with fellow witch Tara Maclay Amber Benson.

Jung's work has been influential in the fields of psychiatry , anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy and religious studies.

The two men conducted a lengthy correspondence and collaborated, for a while, on a joint vision of human psychology. Freud saw the younger Jung as the heir he had been seeking to take forward his "new science" of psychoanalysis and to this end secured his appointment as President of his newly founded International Psychoanalytical Association.
Homosexuality Brotherhoods of Warriors "The community of their lives had brought about profound friendship among these men. The camp, for most, took the place of their country; living without a family they transferred the needful tenderness to a companion, and they would fall asleep in the starlight side by side under the same cloak. And then in their perpetual wanderings through all sorts of countries, murders, and adventures, they contracted affections, one for the other, in which the stronger protected the younger in the midst of battles, helped him to cross precipices, sponged the sweat of fevers from his brow, and stole food for him, and the weaker, a child perhaps, who had been picked up on the roadside, and had then become a Mercenary, repaid this devotion by a thousand kindnesses. Though Flaubert pictures here the relations of the warriors during the great Mercenary War in Carthage BC after the First Punic War, he was obviously more influenced by Greek sources, and contemporary events in the French military. Nevertheless I'm convinced that such relations between warriors were never better described than in this fictional novel.
