Abstract: Before President Tsai Ing-wen publicly expressed support for marriage equality in her campaign commercial on Facebook in October 2015, there is no stark difference in the stance of LGBT rights between the two major parties, namely the Kuomintang (KMT) and the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP). On October 26, 2016, Legislator Yu Mei-nu filed a bill proposal to introduce provisions of same-sex marriage. Therefore, policy issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people have gained recent salience in Taiwan. However, most of the Taiwanese people are unfamiliar with or not concerned about issues of LGBT rights. Given the lack of understanding about the complex details covered in the legislative proposal among the general public, it is the activists and interest groups that could effectively shape the way people perceive the issue of same-sex marriage. 

In order to explore how effective the messages disseminated by activists can shape public opinion, we will use a survey experiment to assess the potential framing effect on the stance of same-sex marriage among the Taiwanese population. The survey participants are randomly assigned to three groups. A pro-gay vignette is delivered to the first group before asking the interviewees their stance on marriage equality, while the second group with a pro-family vignette and the third one is the control group. By controlling for demographic variables and other relevant variables such as whether the interviewee knows any LGBT family or friends, we can isolate and show the effect of how different framing strategies utilized by interest groups may change people’s policy stance on bill proposals of same-sex marriage in Taiwan.

Abstract: This paper seeks to explore the rhetoric used by “pro-ana” (pro-anorexia) and “pro-mia” (pro-bulimic) girls on such pro-ana and pro-mia websites and message boards from a third-wave feminist perspective. The researchers conducted a through rhetorical analysis (or close textual analysis) of pro-ana and pro-mia websites and message boards that were created by and for these girls. The researchers then coded for themes, which will be further discussed in the paper in its entirety.

Abstract: Few studies have examined the group of people who strongly oppose abortion yet support the death penalty. Those studies that have investigated the subject show that a punitive orientation toward criminal offenders and a preference for a literal interpretation of the Bible are the strongest predictors of membership in this pro-life/pro-death penalty group. The question addressed in the present paper is whether a person’s gender also influences group membership: Do punitiveness and literalism have the same predictive power for both women and men, or do the predictors vary as a function of gender? The answer to this question is important for public opinion research. Policy implications are discussed.

Abstract: Despite the intensely emotional dynamic between the pro-life and pro-choice movements, scholars have failed to recognize the central role of emotion in the abortion debate, reflecting of the absence of emotions in social movement research more generally. Furthermore, research on the pro-life and pro-choice movements often treats each side individually instead of examining the relationship between them, leaving a gap in our understanding of the abortion debate as a whole. This paper examines the use of vilification in the pro-life and pro-choice movements. Vilification, the process by which one group cultivates a negative image of an opponent, accounts for a great deal of the interaction between movements and counter-movements and plays an important role in how each side views itself and its opposition. Vilification is also a fundamentally emotional process, and as such provides an excellent vantage point for analyzing both movement/countermovement dynamics and the role of emotions in social movements.
