In my personal opinion, gay marriage should be globally accepted The biggest misunderstanding in this hot topic is that those of the gay community have a "choice" to whom they can feel attracted to but simply choose to be gay. Just as heterosexuals do not "choose" who they are attracted to, neither do homosexuals. Multiple anti-gay groups claim that “homosexuality is preventable and treatable” as well as "living as a homosexual is not as happy-go lucky as frequently portrayed in the entertainment media.” How can someone with no personal experience of being gay say that homosexuality can be "changed," or even whether a homosexual can be happy or not? What about the research done proving that homosexuality is purely genetic? No one "chooses" to live a life filled with prejudice and discrimination.
However, boycotting heterosexual weddings to reverse the state’s ruling against homosexuals is a clever idea. This idea has the potential to sabotage the government’s plan to make money off of weddings, especially same-sex marriages. There can’t be any economic growth if both heterosexual and homosexual couples decide to postpone their weddings due to unequal treatment of the other. Therefore, straight couples that realize the sincerity of being deprived of a long time dream have now switched sides. Legalization of same-sex marriage could potentially provide homosexuals with the same rights, and benefits of their heterosexual counterparts.
The average American thinks that homosexuals deserve all the rights that heterosexuals, but gay marriage is dead wrong. Many people also believe that homosexuality is about nothing but sex. If homosexuality was all about sex, why would they fight so hard to be able to marry? The reality is that homosexuality is much more about love and affection than it is about sex. Noboody can come up with a good reason to deny gays the right to marry.
Second, states are beginning to realize that gay marriage is not the worst thing in the world and are slowly legalizing it. Third, gay marriage is played into the political views because of the many laws that are made to prevent it. Then there ways that gay married couples are treated differently. Lastly, many believe that children should have a man and a woman as their parents but gay couples do just as fine as heterosexual families do. To make sure there is a partial understanding at to what is at hand, here is a brief summary of the history of the battle for gay marriage.
Or maybe they were a couple of letters of the same sex engaging in a homosexual relationship. A “W” is two “V” s in a civil union, but the world is not ready to flip that on its head and let them go for the big “M” (Kintz). Not only does some humans have a problem with individuals being gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people also has an issue with same sex marriage. Love and marriage shouldn 't have a gender to it, because love just happens. People shouldn 't sacrifice their happiness in marrying someone who doesn 't make them happy just to be accepted and not be judged.
Some may argue in the bible it states it is wrong to be involved in a gay marriage. If two people love each other why can they not get married? There are so many arguments that can be brought up to justify marriage and for couples to receive benefits like any other couple.

Introduction Gay is defined as “pertaining to, or exhibiting sexual desire or behavior directed toward a person or persons of one's own sex.” Or in other words; a man and a man, or a woman and a woman, loving each other like a man and a woman typically would. Naturally, as a man and a woman would want to do when they love each other, gay couples have been getting married. However, not everyone agrees with the gay’s lifestyle; in both government and religions, the gay lifestyle has been banned. As a matter of fact, the gay community has seen a lot of discrimination over the past few years during their “equal rights” campaign, such as hate crimes, and a lack of equal employment opportunities. Being married is more than just a title when it comes to the benefits of being married.
According to Brooks and Goldberg (2001), stereotypes and judgments of gay couples are based on the mainstream's homophobic mentality. Gay couples are oppressed by social stigma and suffered from biased representations in the media because of their differences (Brooks & Goldberg, 2001; Clarke, 2001). Gay adoption is also questioned because of the public's uncertainty about adopted children's welfare and the possible effects that adoptive parents can have on their children (Brooks & Goldberg, 2001). On an institution... ... middle of paper ... ...should advocate for placing children in adoptive families as early as possible to prevent disruptive behaviors from happening and to have more "gay friendly" employees in their agencies. Finally, the states should establish laws and legislation to protect gay and lesbian rights (Erich et al., 2008; Brooks & Goldberg, 2001).
Gay marriage should be legal worldwide. Gay marriage or same-sex marriage is when a man and man or women and a woman get married. Same-sex marriage impacts society in different types of ways, some people are affected by it because they think it is against the bible, others seem to have no impact or problem with same-sex marriage. However for the gay community it affects them, because in some states they are not allowed to marry the one they are in love with it. Also it impacts them because there are groups of people against same-sex marriage and the gay community is constantly being judged by people opposed to same-sex marriage.
While many people are satisfied with these laws because they are protecting the traditional idea of marriage, other people, both homosexuals and heterosexuals are saying that these laws are not only unjust, but unconstitutional. Many people can not understand why homosexuals a... ... middle of paper ... ...tment to each other; it is also a business union that comes with certain stability and benefits. Just because homosexual marriage does not fit in with our traditions doesn't mean it's wrong. Homosexuals are different, but different doesn't mean inferior. Homosexuals want to be treated with the same fairness and equality as everyone no more, no less.
