Abstract
This research examines the topic of homosexuality on a global scale and what helps or harms the justification of it. On a global scale, homosexuality is a topic that gets very polarized responses with some nations being accepting of it while others are actively against it. This study uses data collected in the 6th wave of the World Values Survey during 2010 to 2014 and quantitative research methods of analysis. It was framed through the idea of Arjun Appadurai’s theory of disjuncture which views the world in a series of “scapes” or areas that flow such as media, information, etc. This theory is a way of understanding conflict when scapes collide with one another. In findings, specific scapes (mediascapes and ethnoscapes) have a positive impact on the justification of homosexuality while others have a negative impact. This paper further outlines how the scapes impact the justification of homosexuality and ways in which they can be understood.
