One of Sullivan arguments’ is that straight couples don’t have go through any proofing about their relationship, so it’s discriminating to make gay couples have to prove themselves to society in order to be equal. Shown in paragraph thirteen the author says, “But even the most harden conservatives recognize that gays are a permanent minority and likely to go away (pg. 491)”. Then lastly the author employs common ground, that since it’s become more acceptable for gays to come out openly about their sexuality, It would also, end the wake of AIDS, as a unpretentious public health measure. “To be gay and to be bourgeois no longer seems such an absurd proposition. Certainly, since Aids, to be gay and to be responsible has become a necessity (pg. 489)”. The author concludes that if society stops being so binary about gay marriage and same sex relations have the same privileges and benefits as a straight marriage, it might bridge the gap between gays and their parents. “It could do as much to heal the gay-straight rift as any amount of gay rights legislation (pg.491)”.
