Homosexuals, targets of discrimination and social injustice, deserve to have equal opportunities and rights as every other person in America, homosexual or straight. Homosexual marriages are accepted already by the Constitution, and they offer nothing but economic and social benefits if legalized, therefore there is no real reason as to why homosexual marriages should not be legalized. Legg, Joshua.
However all of the points may be arguable it still doesn’t change that fact that gay people are humans that love like any other person in this world and should not be excluded from marrying the person that they love. Same sex marriages should not be banned because it is untraditional; but should be recognized like any other marriage involves love and it might be different but we all should be recognized as equals. Same sex marriages should be legalized in all states because everyone has different views on the topic, but happiness makes the world go around amongst other things and no one should be deprived of their happiness no matter their sexual preferences. Same sex marriages should not be banned because it is untraditional; but should be recognized like any other marriage involves love and it might be different but we all should be recognized as equals.
My marriage is not threatened or devalued in any way, shape or form” (Land 31). In conclusion, gay marriage should be allowed in the United States because it supports the idea of equal rights, and it would do no harm to children with homosexual parents, or society. When gays are denied marriage, not only are they denied that right, but many other rights as well. This is completely unacceptable. By making gay marriage legal, the government is setting up a world in which everyone is balanced.

Well, take a look at who many of these critics allow to marry and raise children: murderers, child molesters, convicted felons of all sorts, and so on.

Critical race feminism first came to prominence after the contributions set forth by scholars like Mari Matsuda, Regina Austin, Adrien Wing, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and Patricia Williams seeking to redefine feminism through the experiences of colored women. Furthermore, these authors challenged the theoretical frameworks of institutionalized racism by critically examining the often-overlooked perspectives of black women in law, culture, and society. Additionally, critical race feminism offered women of color newfound recognition under the guise of the term interesctionality (Crenshaw,
Susan B. Anthony Susan Brownell Anthony was considered one of the first women activist. She fought for the abolition of slavery, African American rights, labor rights and women’s rights. Susan Anthony fought for women’s rights by speaking up and campaigning for women and serval others around the United States. She devoted her time and attention on the needs of women. Ms. Anthony helped reform the law to benefit women and improve our conditions, and encouraged the eliminations of laws that only benefited the men of our country.
It is just normal human interactions between same sex. The opposite of homo-social is hetero-social that is to have relations with the opposite sex in friendly manner and not sexual in nature. Homosociality is very common across the world but is more highlighted in countries in which heterosexual friendship is more prominent, particularly in Middle East countries. People who are involved in homosociality cannot be directly identified as gays or lesbians in nature. They are straight in their orientation and preference.
Dicker describes the revolutionary movements that brought about the changes in the society in terms of gender equality and women's rights. Although Dicker reveals significant similarities between the types of struggles in the first and second waves of feminism in the United States, ultimately she demonstrates that the differences outweigh the similarities. In the first wave of feminism, Dicker depicts the struggle that the women are going through to attain women’s right to vote and equality. In the nineteenth century, women were prohibited from voting and feminist such as Susan Anthony got in trouble when then went to vote and were faced with charges. As evidenced in the quote from the book, ‘... women deserved to make their voices heard and, in so doing, create laws that would benefit and protect them,’ the right to vote not only women gave them a chance to make socio-political changes in the country that would empower them, but also gender equality (Dicker 54).
Making homosexuality “normal” or displaying queer characters as anything other than being different, unnatural, or closeted threatens heterosexuality. Displaying homosexuality as normal would mean that homosexual men could be more than just effeminate males that are attracted to other males. That is why Kuhar claims, “the homosexual became a normal citizen, yet still a member of a clearly distinct social minority, one that indeed should be tolerated but only as long as it does not challenge heterosexual domination”(Kuhar, 90). This means we only tolerate homosexuality in society and in television shows because it does not threaten heterosexuality. Heterosexuality allows homosexuality to be
It is their nature to be the way they are and no amount of religion or moral judgement can change that for them. Same-sex couples should not be afraid to publicly expose their love to the world and should be given the proper respect and that all heterosexual couples have. This includes but not limited to, the legal agreement that all homosexual are allowed to marriage in their own states and county. The unionization of marriage should not be just limited to just men and women just because an unreliable holy book from two thousand years ago says so.
