The author of this article Here Comes the Groom by Andrew Sullivan, makes a good argument about same sex marriage and gay relationships .The author feels that gay people should have the same rights and privileges that straight couples have when it comes to being in a relationship or even when being married Sullivan’s has a very accurate argument on this topic and I like the way Sullivan differs his point respectfully. I think he makes a strong moral argument for his position, which has lead me to agree with him on this topic.
Despite popular belief, homosexual couples are not inferior to their heterosexual counterparts. Like heterosexuals, many homosexual people actually want to form long, fulfilled relationships. In fact, researchers have found that homosexuals actually do stay in relationships, with the majority having been together for more than ten years (“Answers to your Questions...”). So, in reality, the long-believed stereotype of promiscuity within the L.G.B.T. community does not really make sense. The stereotypes, rumors, and discriminations against homosexual people hurts a lot more than today’s society really knows.
“Being gay is much more profound than simply a sexual relationship; being gay is part of that person’s core identity, and goes right to the very center of his being. It’s like being black in s society of whites, or a blonde European in a nation of black Asians” (Tamara L. Roleff). Although marriage, cohabitation and parenting styles of homosexual families pose no threats to the heterosexual society; many still believe same-sex marriage goes against its true purpose. “At the national level, American public opinion on the issue remains split (44 percent support legalizing same-sex marriage; 53 percent oppose same-sex marriage in a May 2010 Gallup Poll) even as opposition toward legalizing same-sex marriage is at its lowest point in decades (Jones, 2010)” (Amy B. Becker). Also to one’s surprise, among the vast amount of psychological disorders, homosexuality is not one. Homosexuals are just as capable of sustaining stable and successful relationships and families just as heterosexuals.
Jessica Tran Mrs. Brownwell English 2A Period 2 Oct. 2, 2015 McMahon's Argument Everyone wants to be “happy.” Everyone endeavors to fulfill their desires for their own pleasure. What makes this ironic is, the fact that most don‘t know what the actual definition of happiness is. “In Pursuit of Unhappiness” presents an argument, which states that not everyone will be happy.
Aside from threatening our freedom, ignoring the differences between personal and corporate privacy results in unusual conclusions. We often make a clear distinction between general corporate rights and personal rights, because they have different meanings and purposes in different contexts. And we rightfully treat humans and corporations differently. For example, individual and corporate taxes are not one in the same. Unlike most individuals, corporations end up saving money each year when it comes to taxation, as Catherine Rampell points out in her opinion article, “Corporations are people. So what if people were corporations?” But in recent years, the United States has accorded corporations more rights on the grounds that they are, in a
...at to the stability of family life in our society. Sexual intercourse, explained by Haines (2011), is a special bond that is created for the aim of reproducing children despite not being able to, at times. It unites two dissimilar body parts in a way that can produce a reproductive effect. Thus, same sex relationships are opposed because male-female relationships are the only sort that can fully embrace the sexual complimentary (Haines, 2011). If we de-emphasize the procreative function of marriage, then it is only focused on the intensity of feeling between married couples (Pinkerton, 2014). Pinkerton (2014) said that no matter how deep and intimate one’s feelings may be, it can decrease after many years of raising children. This would ultimately lead to divorce and broken families which threatens the stability of family life in our society as stated earlier.
Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease are common brain disorders that affect a large part of the world's population. As of today there are no permanent cures for these diseases. By looking at pictures of a healthy aged brain compared to pictures of a diseased aged brain shows how much damage one disease can cause. Finding a cure is not easy, it takes time and money and while treatments are being created countless lives lost. Samuel Cohen’s argument is great for informing about Alzheimer’s; however, Siddharthan Chandran's argument is most effective in explaining how the brain can cure itself.

There has been a lot of abuse to animals over the years where dogs have been brought into the clinic and are reported to be hit by a car but weren’t at all they were hit or tortured. Veterinarians generally rely on their instinct to identify abuse and an accident to a animal. Any suspected abuse or neglect could help an animal get out of a bad household and to make sure the abuser is prosecuted. Nida Intarapanich is a third year veterinary student at Cummings School who took up the cause of animal cruelty and decided to get into more detailed with cases that seem to not be fulling looked at on animal abuse. She developed a statistical modeling tool that looks at injury patterns to help veterinarians distinguish between an accident and intent.
