Daddy, what's homosexual?
Well, son, let me show you this pictograph to help you better understand...
I did this for a class a while ago. We had to create pictographs. Pictographs often help people to find their way through signs, maps etc. A lot of symbols such as "bathroom people" and the heart are recognized internationally.
What isn't easily understood is sexuality/orientation. Everyone has differing opinions, values and thoughts on the subject. It can become very tense and complex. So I decided to take the idea of sexual orientation and explain it with symbols that would be recognized and easily understood by everyone. There is no statement, opinion or agenda. It simply explains what it is - just like what good pictographs do.
