traditional way without first being able to separate themselves as individuals from their families’ group mindset.
Why does Solomon believe that sexual orientation is a “horizontal identity”?
a. Typically the idea was a traditional male and female relationship but as of recent years this idea has become
more and more lax and thus allows much more flexibility with relationships between individuals being of the same gender, and others.
