In most countries worldwide, gay marriage is illegal, forcing homosexuals to remain hidden out of a sense of shame and fear. Many religions, including Judaism and Islam, forbid homosexual acts and behaviour. This is worrying for society as one may not be accepted by one’s own religion, as well as being rejected by society. Furthermore, homosexuality is constantly slated over social media, providing a negative aura surrounding the subject. All these factors influence the fear and shame of an individual.
They think this is pleasing every body, and hate to tell them its truly not. It is not even pleasing the gays because they just want more until there overruling. First, gay rights have made a lot of people unstable. It has kids choosing sides just because they advertise to show them how much “fun” it is to be gay. Society is making it seem like was not a problem; this is so great.
In Stephen Mays article “ What About Gender Roles In Same Sex Relationships” he talks about how the traditional gender roles of a relationship do apply in a small way to same sex couples but he also says “Imposing gender roles on on gay couples is even more ridiculous than doing so with straight couples”. The whole purpose of a gay relationship is that there is no “woman” and in a lesbian relationship there is no “man”. People are so accustomed to the traditional relationship of a man and a woman that they try to push those gender roles onto single gender relationships. When a man shows personality traits that we would normally associate with a woman, that does not make him the woman in the gay relationship because he is biologically a man.
Issues like these may well be controversial, being based on an individual 's creed and principles. After researching for months about homosexuality, I came to a conclusion that the homosexuals should be treated no less than the heterosexuals. What the antagonists of homosexuality say are: it is unnatural; it is against the divine will of God, it runs counter to the tradition and more. Occasionally someone would bring up a "real" problem but most of the claims by the opposing side stand on the basis of a highly subjective valuation.
Why do people have a problem with gay marriage? It is not all people who have a problem with gay marriage, but there are those who believe that gay marriage is an abomination and goes against God. Others however, believe that people are just people, and it does not matter if you are gay or not. Charles Colson believes that gay marriage is the end of the tradition of marriage; especially if gay couples are able to adopt children. Katha Pollitt however, believes that it does not matter if a couple is gay, straight, or elderly; as long as they are happy together and love one another.
It tells us, just because same-sex marriage is legal, that does not mean that the fight’s over. It talks about how LGBT+ people are not getting treated equally. They face discrimination for who they are, have a higher risk of commiting/attempting suicide then the average person, and they’re not receiving the resources that they need. It also shows how there’s little, to no representation or acceptance in the media. The article states how LGBT+ students are more likely to have physical and mental health problems.
Not only is the media coverage in conflict with O’Flaherty’s personal interests, it also shines an unnecessary spotlight on other members of the LGBT community that would prefer not to be defined by their sexuality. True equality for the LGBT community will not be achieved until they are able to go about their lives the same way heterosexual people can. Calling attention to their sexuality, in a positive manner or not, prevents a normal livelihood for the nine million Americans who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or gay. The best way to support this community would be to give them the same treatment that we would anyone else, without bias or judgement based on their sexual
A brochure for “Reminder Day” expressed that homosexuals were often not treated as equals and that the Federal, state and local governments have shown bias towards these individuals. Although some religions would perceive homosexuality as a sin, the individuals are still human and should be given the same opportunities as the rest of the population. In the past, the Declaration of Independence promised natural rights for all men, but some rights were not realized for minority groups. Over time, parts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were revoked and amended so that in today’s world, all “men”, including women and minority groups, all have the same rights.
Ned also hurts the gay community and outkasts them even by trying to insist that gay men should not have sex. Although there is good intentions behind this, it was feared that this would alarm people outside of the gay community. However, one of the reasons it was hard for Ned to be a good activist was because of the emotional strains that drowned him every day. One of the reasons he was so one minded when speaking to people was because of the impact AIDS has had on his
Another example that compromises the freedom of speech will be allowing the younger generation to understand and think on their own about certain subjects such as pornography or homosexuality. This example clearly shows that freedom of speech is being compromised as the younger generation are unclear or sure of what to think about such topics as they are unable to think for themselves and decide. The younger generation, most likely from the age of 12 and above, should be able to think on their own as to why it is not safe and not being told to think they are not safe as this would be controlling what they are thinking. Hence, Freedom of speech is being compromised as they are unable to think with
People are different. People all around the world are different. Why do we as different people categorize others based on their skin color or their gender identity. We should all understand what it means to be different. We all have our rights so the LGBTQ community should also have their rights.
Cornel West, a philosopher, made his view on heterosexism very clear in an interview with Vitka Eisen and Mary Kenyatta, in 1995. In the interview, West claimed that heterosexism has always been practiced and enforced throughout history for the sake of religion and consistency, and subsequently, the fight against heterosexism necessitates a great political courage. Throughout the interview, West asserts that it is unnecessary for people to associate staying faithful with malevolent acts toward people who stray from the mainstream. West stated that people undergo a process of socialization, at a very young age, to believe that any persons who does not identify within the heterosexual orientation are unaccepted (West 404).
