Issues of discrimination and oppression are addressed as they apply to various groups (e,g, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, women, elderly, disabled, etc.) Social work and related literature is examined to assess the ways in which we develop knowledge of human sexuality and the limitations of research regarding sexual issues.
