Some people feel that being gay is a sin or something that shouldn’t be in the world. However, there are some people that support gay people and don’t mind them being in the world. It wasn’t a person’s choice to become gay. They didn’t just wake up one morning saying “I want to be gay”. Gays also feel scared to be themselves in the world.
However, due to the different sexual orientations of the two partners, problems often occur, causing emotional harm to"closet gays," their partners, and their children (Harbinger 683). If gay marriage were legal, homosexuality would be legitimate. Thus, the number of "closet gays" would decrease, as acceptance of their sexual orientation increases. In short, society would be spared a lot of trouble--the breakup of a family or dissatisfaction with one's life, especially of the homosexual partner, as she or he tries to comply with society's standards. Same-sex marriage is just in that it provides gay couples with the same rights as heterosexual couples.
The topic I picked is Homosexual people should have the right and the freedom like what straight people have in this world. I think this topic is very controversial because in the U.S. Most homosexual people especially males, get discriminated because of what they feel: having attractiveness to their same sex. Most people in the U.S. are str8 and most people think that being gay or lesbian is wrong and it is not right to show it off and be proud of it. Another point why this topic is very controversial is when gay people marry each other.
This means that many of the same people who are even passionately in favor of homosexual rights oppose homosexuals on this one issue. This is because there is a lot of misunderstanding about what homosexuality really is, as well as the erroneous assumption that homosexual people enjoy the same civil rights protections as everyone else. For the reasons of ending social injustice, the economic and social benefits of allowing homosexuals to marry, and the constitution, homosexual marriages should be a legalized institution. Homosexuals are often treated unjustly socially. Homosexual people and couples are treated as inferior to that of heterosexuals.
What non-supporters of homosexuality thought or said about homosexuals no longer affected the homosexual community. Although many people still disagree with homosexuality, our society today has begun to accept homosexuals as a norm. The homosexual community faced, and still faces many hardships. Homosexuals are constantly being judged based on their feelings and beliefs. Many homosexuals and supporters believe this is not fair, especially the ones in Ame... ... middle of paper ... ...approve of this because they are afraid that children will learn to be homosexual.
Religions see homosexuals as a sin. They aren’t accepted in many of the religions and aren’t allowed to marry in various states. Even though they aren’t accepted in our society, the media and celebrities are changing our views and the acceptance they receive. Take in mind we all want the right to marry the person who we love. The gay community doesn’t have the benefit of marrying their couple in many states or have the acceptance in their church.
They were also, at times, presented with rude comments about how they chose to live their life. However, times are changing and while still being presented with discrimination more and more people are letting their gay status be known to the world. Not all people support the idea of a man or women spending their lives with someone of the same sex. Both politics and the public are at a stalemate with their own beliefs of how the situation showed be handled. As time goes on though people are becoming more and more accepting of homosexuality, which was a huge taboo about forty years ago.
Have you ever been treated so unfairly, but knew there was very little you could do to change it? If so, then you know exactly how many of the homosexuals in the world feel about the right to marry. Many homosexuals feel that this right has been kept just out of reach for them, due to others who despise them. These individuals believe that being gay is wrong, immoral and disgusting; but this is definitely not the case. Gay marriage should be allowed in the United States because this decision supports the idea of equal rights, the effectiveness of children with homosexual parents, and this act would do no harm to society.
So going against God’s will and engaging in sexual activity with someone of the same sex was mostly looked down upon. There are people who are in no way religious who believe that homosexuality is wrong because they believe that it’s more likely to spread STD’s, some people may just had a bad experience involving a homosexual or homosexuals, and some believe that it’s goes against the “natural law”. People believe that it goes against the “natural law” because they believe that two people should be able to reproduce so that the human race can thrive. But since two men, and two women can’t reproduce with each other, it goes against that “law”. So the real question is, is gay marriage beneficial or detrimental to society.
If a homosexual couple is capable to be loving, nurturing, and dedicated just as a heterosexual couple, then they should equally have the same rights to adopt. Many people say that a child needs a mother and father figure to be raised right and to provide both viewpoints of gender. Some other people believe that gender does not matter when parenting. Society needs to set aside its differences and do what is best for the thousands of kids that are without a loving family. Denying these kids a home just because two individuals of the same sex love each other is injustice.
