Since the individual chooses to be a homosexual, they should not be given special privileges. Another argument that you hear is that these couples should not get married simply because of the torment and ridicule they would be faced with in their everyday lives. There are news reports from across America telling about how a gay person was beaten or killed just because they were looked at as different. Some of these people would end up the target of verbal abuse and maybe even physical abuse, just because some heterosexual people see them as different.
The topic I picked is Homosexual people should have the right and the freedom like what straight people have in this world. I think this topic is very controversial because in the U.S. Most homosexual people especially males, get discriminated because of what they feel: having attractiveness to their same sex. Most people in the U.S. are str8 and most people think that being gay or lesbian is wrong and it is not right to show it off and be proud of it. Another point why this topic is very controversial is when gay people marry each other.
Homophobia has really affected all people in very negative ways regardless of their sexual orientation. As homophobia is based on someone disliking or being prejudice to another person targeted to people that are homosexual. There are many people that want to fight against homophobia and help protect and support the LGBTQ community. The different sexual orientations of all individuals they have the right to be who they identity them selves as. As homophobia not only affects the LGBTQ community but affects every sexual orientation, seeing that much hate and prejudice toward people it is just sad and disturbing that people still hate on something they have no control over.
Cann Chin Professor Griesmann English 1B 20 February 2013 Gay Marriage Since the dawn of time, homosexuality has naturally occurred along with the rest of the world, but to many people, attraction to the same gender is still considered an abnormality. Lifestyles, such as orientation, gender, or race are constantly berated with discrimination, especially in the past. In our current society, discrimination has withered to a bare minimum, but there will always be room for a new one to rise. A large portion of the world have judgemental eyes, and sadly, these eyes have denied the rights of many, with one of the major discrimination being gay marriage. In the United States, only nine out of fifty states allow gay marriage.
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.
In this world, being gay is not easy. People always are going to stereotype and think only about the sexual side of it, making it sound disgusting and inappropriate. Gay people are the same as straight people, we are all people; however that is not how it works in the workplace. There are many issues that homosexuals have to fight against to become a country, and a world, of full equality: gay guys and lesbians are discriminated and fired in many states of the United States, transgender guys and girls who are even more discriminated for the way they dress, and they are not able to get a regular job to support themselves and their families. However, there are some ways we can follow to get to live in a world of full equality.
Marriage is considered an act between two people who love each other to vow that they will always love each other. The Catholic Church is against gay marriage as they view the matter as a man and woman should be the only relationship capable of marriage. Gay marriage should be allowed in the United States because it’s a violation of the 14th amendment, denying the right to same sex marriage also allows the right to discriminate and because it is not an attack on same sex marriage. The dictionary defines discrimination as “the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of people”(“Discrimination”). This type of behavior is seen everyday to all different types of people.
Many critics of the ordeal pose the argument that the allowance of same-sex unions would single-handedly demolish the already fragile structure of marriage (Head). They go on to further to say that same-sex marriages would cause men to become barbaric, as women are the only ones who are able to tame them(Nock 17). But, homosexuals have not been given the opportunity in America to prove the critics of their desires wrong. It is not fair that heterosexuals are allowed to marry and divorce as they please while homosexuals are not even given the opportunity to take part in marriage. Homosexuals are just like every average American.
On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution guarantees the right for same-sex couples to marry. Many conservative groups do NOT agree with this decision. The believe that gay marriage should not be permitted but civil unions should be granted to lesbians and homosexuals. On the other hand there is a large group that believes neither gay marriage nor civil unions should be offered to gay and lesbian couples and that any legal union should be available to heterosexual couples only. The different opinions that are expressed by society’s attitudes towards gay marriage continue to cause great controversy throughout the country, and should come to a halt by allowing homosexuals to wed.
Evidently, in the article “Arizona Sparks Debates about Religious Objection to Gay Marriage,” Michael Lipka and David Masci write that “More than half Americans (56%) say same-sex marriage would go against their religious belief.” The statistic clearly shows that religion plays an important role on how people perceive actions as moral or immoral. Unfortunately, gay marriage is immoral because it’s against religious beliefs. In addition, according to Steven Waldman, who is the author of “A Common Misconception,” many religions such as Judaism, Catholic, Islamic, traditional Jews and Muslim say that same-sex marriage does not contribute... ... middle of paper ... ...ernment” (Wolfson). For one thing, government often only nurtures this relationship if it is between itself, a man and a woman. On the other hand, when it comes to two people in the same gender, government tends to reject this relationship.
