Homosexual, Emotion Management, behavior, shape, and self and social control
Emotions are at the center of everyday interactions; they motivate behavior, shape, and affect self and social control. Emotion management is being open to feelings, reflect and control emotions, engage or detach from emotional states. Emotional control allows one to follow emotions in their selves and others.
Homosexuals are persons who are attracted physically and romantically to people of the same sex, often referred to as gay. Female homosexual persons are also called lesbians. The society is the primary cause of emotional problems for the homosexuals (Coleman1988). The society holds and advance views that homosexual's behaviors are evil, immoral and defective in the society.
Symbolic integrationists' understand emotions as grounded in the sociological challenge to predictable ideas on emotions being universal and innate responses to external stimuli. Symbolic interaction refers to the peculiar character of interaction between human beings. The peculiarity originates from the realization that human beings interpret or "delineate" the other's actions in place of merely reacting to each other's actions and their response is made based on the meaning they derive from the analysis. Therefore, human interaction is defined by use of symbols, by interpretation, or by attaching meaning of one another's actions.

However, homosexuals should also avoid keeping grudges after name-calling instances as this would erupt at a later date. Active emotions management ensures that the heart is always at peace and can tackle any name-calling or provoking occurrences with the utmost sobriety. [...]
[...] Through the Symbolic Interactionism Homosexuals check how they perceive their selves as well as how other people perceive them, therefore they decide to come out and declare their feelings, admit to their selves and to other people of their sexual orientation. The declaration is interpreted by the community with various reactions. Some of the people react negatively with anger or positively with tenderness or kindness. Homosexuals are ready to handle emotional implications of such announcements.
