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.

However, straight marriage is not the right thing to do. Just because a person is happy, does not mean it is morally correct. The article “Gay Marriage” states that Americans still oppose to gay marriage because it violates their religious beliefs (2). Yes, everyone in the world needs to feel happy and accepted, but sometimes it is unnecessary acts that get people where they are in the world.
Some may argue in the bible it states it is wrong to be involved in a gay marriage. If two people love each other why can they not get married? There are so many arguments that can be brought up to justify marriage and for couples to receive benefits like any other couple. In this society understand why some people like myself I feel like people have the right to be with who they want to be with and just because you don’t believe in it doesn’t make it bad.

Gay marriage should be legal worldwide. Gay marriage or same-sex marriage is when a man and man or women and a woman get married. Same-sex marriage impacts society in different types of ways, some people are affected by it because they think it is against the bible, others seem to have no impact or problem with same-sex marriage. However for the gay community it affects them, because in some states they are not allowed to marry the one they are in love with it. Also it impacts them because there are groups of people against same-sex marriage and the gay community is constantly being judged by people opposed to same-sex marriage.
In relation to homosexuals, contradiction constantly arises that gay marriage should not be legalised. However, homosexuals do not necessarily want to get marriage but may just want the justification of having equal rights. Thus, in the case if homosexuals do want to marry at some stage of their relationship, according to Nagle, “people say that banning same sex marriage is not only unfair, but it is also discriminatory” (2010, p.31). In society, denying individuals rights due to their gender, race or sexual orientation is consequently classified as discrimination. Alternatively, to go against gay marriage and not allowing either two females or to males getting married to one another can become a form of illegal discrimination towards society.
Many heterosexual couples fight and have divorces but no one questions what effect that has on children, so why homosexual couples? Same-sex marriage is a new take on marriage, just as religion, society, and culture all evolve, so do the ideas of marriage. Not everything can stay “traditional” forever. Same-sex may be an attack on traditional marriage, and the normalcy of life but it should be accepted and legalized because faith and morality should not play a role in politics, it is discrimination towards a group of people with different beliefs, and it is a human and constitutional right.
Marriage is a privilege, not a right. Society can choose to endorse certain types of sexual arrangements and give support in the form of benefits to these arrangement. Marriage was created to allow society to support heterosexual couples in procreation and society can choose not to give the same benefits to same-sex couples. If “marriage” is red... ... middle of paper ... ...tion of marriage? Since it cannot produce children to further the society and break the “rules” of marriage, common sense would tell us that homosexuality is danger to institution of marriage.
Opponents of such legislation do not want discrimination passed into law and are protesting at every opportunity. One must understand the reasons that people want to ban same-sex marriage before he or she can effectively argue about the subject. Many advocates of same-sex marriage bans say that allowing gays and lesbians to marry would degrade the institution of marriage because marriage is only supposed to exist between a man and woman. In addition, allowing same-sex marriage would cause problems for society (Issues and Controversies on File). One theory why opponents may fight against same-sex marriages is that heterosexual marriages have long reinforced traditional gender roles within marriage and that allowing same-sex marriages would cause males to lose their authority to subordinate females as heterosexual couples begin to model same-sex marriage gender equality (Calhoun 157).
Same sex couples look at being denied the right to legally marry each other as their freedom of speech being taken away, but in actuality they are only expressing their love. Legalizing gay marriage will not damage society. If same sex marriage were legal everywhere in the United States, society will still function normally and no family values will be lost. If gay marriage is legal in seventeen, why must the other thirty three states continue to ban same sex marriage? How can we all be equal if we are being denied certain rights because of who we love?
This is almost completely unsupported. He even concedes that romantic marriage forms the majority of marriages today in the west, but immediately denounces the romantic aspect of marriage. It is pretty easy to tear down his argument that this sho... ... middle of paper ... ...ouple cannot. There is no reason gay people should not be allowed to marry if we allow non-gay couples who cannot produce children to marry. There is certainly historical precedent to only allowing straight couples to marry, but since our current concept of marriage has changed so much since that was relevant, we should strongly consider giving gay people the right to marry.
