In this society people say that everyone is equal, but I wonder if we are equal? People of today fear change and believe that any change that was wrong in the past is wrong still today. I'm here to say that it is time for change. Homosexuals of the United Sates are regular people just like heterosexuals. The question that I have for society is that if all of the people in our nation are looked at as equal, then why are homosexuals treated differently? I have always believed that everyone should be treated equally, and I?m here to stand up for homosexuals. In this paper I will argue how homosexuals are standing up for their selves. They want to be able to have regular families just like anyone else. I will show how they deserve a chance to have a family just like everyone else, and how society should learn to open their eyes and accept new changes that occur in society. They should come to realize that not everything that we fear happens to be wrong. People should be recognized and respected for who they are and not what they are.
For years homosexuals have kept quiet. Some called it ?staying in the closet.? Now, they are coming out of the closet and fighting for the rights that they should be given. The rights to adopt and have a family just like any other couple in society. The American Civil Liberties Union are filing lawsuits against states that still have laws preventing gay adoption and foster care. They are letting people know that they will not go away and that it is time that people accept them for who they are: ?homosexuals? and to give them the same respect that you would expect. By them filling lawsuit and stating their cases they will continue to fight for their rights. A result of this would be The American Bar Association is supporting that adoption is not denied on the bias of the adopting parents. This goes to show one voice can go along way.
Homosexuals should be commended on their determination. There are fighting for rights that they are denied only because of their sexuality. Is that how this society works?
