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. Just as heterosexuals do not "choose" who they are attracted to, neither do homosexuals. Multiple anti-gay groups claim that “homosexuality is preventable and treatable” as well as "living as a homosexual is not as happy-go lucky as frequently portrayed in the entertainment media.” How can someone with no personal experience of being gay say that homosexuality can be "changed," or even whether a homosexual can be happy or not? What about the research done proving that homosexuality is purely genetic? No one "chooses" to live a life filled with prejudice and discrimination.
Unlike heterosexual couples, however, they are denied the right to marriage and all the benefits that go with it. Gay marriages also provide sufficient reasons for society to promote them. They at least fulfill two of the most important reasons for marriage: the domestication of men and the provision of a reliable care giver (Rauch 22). Civilizing men is one of society's biggest problems (Rauch 22).
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. It blows my mind how people are so negative to other people life and happiness. Like if someone wants to get married with the same sex and be happy; let them it’s not you that getting married to the same sex; so why does someone else happiness has too involved rude negative people. Moreover, “just because same sex marriage is weakling the traditional marriages does not mean anything” (Zorn). I saw so many couples who are in the lesbian gay bisexual and transgender communities that had posted there married on YouTube and still are married to this
America, as a nation, is known to be equal and fair to everybody. It’s a nation that made black and white people equal, men and women equal, but why aren’t gay couples equal to straight couples? Everyone deserves the same rights and equality especially when it comes to adoption. Even though gay adoption is legal it is not fair or equal. Many places don’t allow gays to adopt and many couples don’t allow their children to be adopted by gay couples.
If the child is from a previous heterosexual relationship then studies show that it is likely the homosexual parents will be denied all rights to see the child (Perrin 342). Finding an adoption agency can be exceedingly d... ... middle of paper ... ...d to live by the standards of a God they don’t believe in. Another concern is that if homosexual parents get another child of their same gender that the child will be sexually abused but same sex parents view their children in the same way heterosexual ones do. The risk is no higher than with heterosexual parents. Another argument is that the child will not develop right psychologically but to say this is saying that homosexuality is a mental disorder which according to the DSM- V it is not (Reekers 343).
Denying gay marriage affects gay and lesbian couples and lets people think that is acceptable to discriminate against them. Even though same-sex couples are not natural, people should be able to get married to whomever they want no matter the gender because you can’t invariably choose who you fall in love with and everyone should be equal and not discriminated against. All over the nation gays are discriminated against for many reasons, they are asked various questions such as if they can raise kids, provide a stable environment, and if their child’s development is effected by their parent’s sexual orientation. Statistics show that children raised by homosexual couples thrive just as well, some even better than heterosexual couple’s children. Their families are not really divergent from any other traditional family.
While many people are satisfied with these laws because they are protecting the traditional idea of marriage, other people, both homosexuals and heterosexuals are saying that these laws are not only unjust, but unconstitutional. Many people can not understand why homosexuals a... ... middle of paper ... ...tment to each other; it is also a business union that comes with certain stability and benefits. Just because homosexual marriage does not fit in with our traditions doesn't mean it's wrong. Homosexuals are different, but different doesn't mean inferior. Homosexuals want to be treated with the same fairness and equality as everyone no more, no less.
That is what makes us such great country. We have our freedom to express who we are, but the gays do not because the older generations do not approve? There are so many things that are good about gay marriage. When gay marriage is allowed it is giving everyone their right to be married. This is important because we should all be able to get married when we see fit in our lives, no matter who we want our spouse to be.
Since then, views have changed and people began to realize love is love and marriage between homosexuals should be legal to maintain equality within the states. Gay marriage should be legalized within the United States because it will provide happiness and equality for many people. First of all, the main concern with gay marriage has been the religious views of many people. Gay marriage has been stuck in the closet (pun intended) because the government tries to keep everyone politically and religiously happy. Second, states are beginning to realize that gay marriage is not the worst thing in the world and are slowly legalizing it.
Another reason that some people think gay marriage shouldn't be legalised is because gay marriage may lead to more children being raised in same sex households which are not an optimum environment because children need both a mother and father. Girls who are raised apart from their fathers are reportedly at a higher risk for teenage pregnancy and children without a mother are deprived of the emotional security and advice that mothers provide. Although, some children who have heterosexual parents live with just their mum or their dad and that is also not considered to be an optimum environment. Everyone should have the right to marry the person they love and gender shouldn't matter because love is love. Same sex marriage shouldn't be taken away from two people who want to make a commitment with the person they love.
