While the majority of the population believes that the legalization of gay marriage will have negative impact on the society, gay activists claim that it is against basic civil rights to prohibit them from marrying. The constitution gives us many civil rights and remedies. One of the liberty granted to us is to be in pursuit of happiness, which homosexual people are not allowed to chase. They cannot be married to the person they love. It violates their freedoms.
My second reason for supporting LGBT/ same-sex marriage is the reason for discrimination against marriage. The UDHR article number 7 illustrates that all people are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination. Furthermore, article 1 of the UDHR also indicates that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. We should act towards one another in a spirit of a brother. By denying the same right as anybody else just because you are different is a clear form of discrimination, and it goes against the constitution.
Which means that there is no logical reasoning behind people disapproval of gay marriage. Rather, it is merely something which someone else’s religion dislikes. At the end, marriage is not defined by religion; but instead interpreted by the government. Even if the “holy book tells you to wed all the girls in apartment 3G” you are still are not allowed to do so. Regarding the controversial issue of same sex marriage.
The author explains how a marital contract should not be given to those who cannot fulfill it, such as children and family (30). He then claims that homosexuals can fulfill said license, but unwittingly contradicts himself by saying, “But it isn’t necessary to prove that homosexuals or lesbians are less--or more--able to form long-term relationships than straights for it to be clear that at least some are.” (30). This clearly shows how disconnected the author is from his audience. This is a persuasive article, attempting to sway people into believing that homosexual marriage should be legal, yet he assumes his audience feels it apparent that some homosexuals are capable of the commitment of marriage. He fails to acknowledge his own argument’s importance in favor of believing that his audience does not need
In my essay I will state my opinion on the topic of whether or not gay people should be allowed to have children. I picked this topic as I feel very strongly towards it. I believe that gay people should be allowed to have children and these are my reasons why: My first reason for believing that gay people should be allowed to have children is that gay parents tend to raise more open-minded and tolerant children. This belief has been studied by many and shows the positives of having gay parents and when researching the topic online there are many quotes and statements from people who were adopted or born into families with same-sex parents or at least one parent who is gay/lesbian/ect. One male with a lesbian mother openly stated how he felt more accepting for how he was raised: "I feel I 'm a more open, well-rounded person for having been raised in a non-traditional family, and I think those that know me woul agree.
Being homosexual may prevent you from living a normal life. According to (Mary. E. Williams) during courtroom debates people state that preventing homosexual from adopting protects children from being negatively influenced. For them just being homosexual it can take their dream goal of having a family or child to an end. Even though Gays can’t produce they still have to chants of adoption which should not be allowed.
These parents have done nothing wrong and possess the same skills and resources as other potential parents, and yet they are not allowed to give a child everything he or she needs, love, protection, and security. So why are these potential parents banned from adopting? Discrimination and prejudices are the main cause of this unconstitutional act. Adoption to gay couples should be legalized everywhere because anyone who is able to meet the requirements of being a loving parent deserves to become a parent, despite their sexual preferences and
These norms, like relationships are only supposed to be between two heterosexual people is defying the freedom of choice, which is extremely emphasize by Americans. However, by not supporting Polyamory they are going against their own words. Polyamory is a controversial topic that has been judged and critic by many, and has caused Polyamorist to be discriminated against, like not being hired at a job, or simply being shunned by their family and friends because of their lifestyle. Do to these discriminations many polyamorist live in secret, but the ones that are not scared to be open about their practice of polyamory are fighting for their acceptance. Now that gay marriage has been approve, polyamorist are awaiting for their lifestyle to be view as normal, and that someday plural marriage would be legalized, so they can practice their lifestyle liberally.
This new definition opened the door to gays and lesbians claiming a right to be married, too. (Anonymous) In 2001, Netherlands became the first country to legalize gay marriage. They were soon followed South Africa, Spain, Canada and a great number of other countries and as of 2015, even the United States of American. ( Freedomtomarry.org) But due to its unique service to society, marriage can never be a private lifestyle
Love and affection given by their husbands all this while are false and unreal. This is proven by polygamy that is done by men. If men are really loving their wife, why must they marry another woman? Why must they betray their love and marriage? Thus, polygamy does not define a true love as it is too hurtful for women.
