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.
One of the most widely known acts of discrimination would be the Loving vs. Virginia case. This case involves an interracial marriage, which was against the law in 1967. The case relates to discrimination in gay marriage because the case struck a nerve with people who believe that discrimination should not be a factor in having a legal marriage. The people involved in the case, Mildred Jeter and Richard Loving, were discriminated against because of their race and were denied the right to marry in certain states. While being denied to marry in Virginia, they married in the District of Columbia.
This means that many of the same people who are even passionately in favor of homosexual rights oppose homosexuals on this one issue. This is because there is a lot of misunderstanding about what homosexuality really is, as well as the erroneous assumption that homosexual people enjoy the same civil rights protections as everyone else. For the reasons of ending social injustice, the economic and social benefits of allowing homosexuals to marry, and the constitution, homosexual marriages should be a legalized institution. Homosexuals are often treated unjustly socially. Homosexual people and couples are treated as inferior to that of heterosexuals.
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. Even through, president Obama legalize same sex marriage on June 26, 2015 in all 50 state, there still individuals who are opposing this law. If president Obama believe that everyone was created equal and that he had made the union a little more perfect, why are other people trying to fight and screw up the almost perfect America.
This is just a few to the many inequalities that homosexuals face in everyday life. The constitution guarantees the right to free speech and the right to pursue happiness to everyone, although homosexuals do not get to live their life by their choice. Most Americans will claim that they are in favor of equal rights for homosexuals. They will all say that gays should have the same rights in housing, jobs, and public accommodations and they should have equal access to government benefits and equal protection of the law. The average American thinks that homosexuals deserve all the rights that heterosexuals, but gay marriage is dead wrong.
Most of society will say they support equal rights for homosexuals. Ask the same members if they support gay marriage and they become hesitant. Recently the majority of Americans will vote for the Constitutional Amendment, which puts a ban on gay marriage. Ironically, these same Americans do believe in the equal rights to the gay community just like any other heterosexual citizen. 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.
Homosexual people are the same as heterosexual people; the only difference is that they like the same gender, whereas heterosexual people like the opposite gender. Who you like should not be reason enough for your rights to be different from anyone else’s. There are many people who think that homosexual people should not be able to have the same rights as heterosexual people. In most states, they cannot get married, they could get fired from their jobs or get paid less, they could be denied housing, healthcare, and they have to abide by the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” rule in the military where they cannot openly serve as a homosexual person. They also are not even protected by hate crime laws in most states.
Traditionally in this country, marriage has been defined as a religious and legal commitment between a man and a woman. Homosexual relationships are slowly gaining acceptance in this country; however these same-sex couples cannot marry legally, have or adopt children, and are believed to threaten society. Some states are performing commitment ceremonies called “civil unions” which is marriage without using the word “marriage”. Many heterosexual citizens as well as politicians are against gay marriage, but, believe it should be left up to the states to decide. Joe Messerli states, “Many politicians are calling for amendments to their state constitution.
That is unethical and completely awful. There 's no harm being done by letting two people who are in love with each other get married. However, many religious fundamentalists are against this and believe gay marriage is wrong and needs to be stopped. Homosexual couples should have the right to get married because it 's a civil right and their sexual preference doesn 't make them any less human. For many
However, due to the different sexual orientations of the two partners, problems often occur, causing emotional harm to"closet gays," their partners, and their children (Harbinger 683). If gay marriage were legal, homosexuality would be legitimate. Thus, the number of "closet gays" would decrease, as acceptance of their sexual orientation increases. In short, society would be spared a lot of trouble--the breakup of a family or dissatisfaction with one's life, especially of the homosexual partner, as she or he tries to comply with society's standards. Same-sex marriage is just in that it provides gay couples with the same rights as heterosexual couples.
