“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”― S.G. Tallentyre. Humans throughout history have been given a series of rights. That they can 't be denied. One of the most important rights that the government nor anyone can take from an individual is freedom of expression which envelopes freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of thought. .
The right to speak is one of the fundamental human rights to maintain a democracy which is defined by the people. Besides that, freedom of speech is to speak without being fear of censoring. Everyone ought to know the situation of their country and have access of information in order to trust the country and the government. Additionally, protecting freedom of speech at all costs is to insulate the speech made regardless of the price that some might have to pay. Freedom of speech is indeed a basic human right, but does protecting free speech includes hate speech?
I would say like how we have to follow the role as how it is. For instance, everyone on earth are divided to man and woman based on externally observed factors. However, the transgender people contradict that assumption. They feel to be threatened by society because of this difference and vice versa. In my opinion, it is not the transgender who is terrible and it has nothing to do with them that cause society to act impolite.
If you take a look at American life 50, 60, and even 70 years ago, its much different from the life that we know today. People of today do not have to constantly watch their backs, or remind their children that they are not allowed to play outside because of one simple factor; skin. Our progress is undoubtedly a positive slope, but as the saying says, there 's surely always room for improvement. The question we should ask ourselves is if we are doing enough to ensure that our past advocates, and philosophers, and supporters did not die in vain because then we would be unworthy of claiming the rights that they fought so hard for. The civil rights movement has always been a major political and civil unrest, but civil rights activists created unrest for their kids, and their grandchildren, to secure equal treatment for everybody.
Some may argue that you could just pretend you’re straight in order to survive, but despite the wellbeing of yourself, it won’t change the homophobic ways of that country. It’s just admitting defeat. The person pretending to be someone they’re not will have to live in the shadows for the rest of their life, living a lie. A protest against these laws may be capable of freeing these individuals from the deep, dark corners of
According to Chinggu, LGBT couples around the world were still excluded. Similar-sex couples do not receive equal services and rights compared to opposite-sex couples. Like for examples, they do not receive equal treatments on some aspects of healthcare, pensions, housing and education. In addition, sex work has a great impact on job search. As a result, LGBT members prefer to keep their real gender identity for employment as well as not to be eliminated in the labor market.
Society still sees this as a media and business propaganda. Netizens everywhere are insisting that though they are for the LGBT community, none of them are for portraying the LGBT community as heroic. In my opinion, the LGBT community should exist just as any other communities exist. I am for equal rights, but not for special treatment. To further discuss, I do believe this change would affect conservative countries and even to a certain extent, religions.
the question of freedom for all mankind . . .” (Eidenmuller). There may never be freedom for all but we cant stand alone and be inconsiderate to those that don't have freedom we have. We must play our role in society and relinquish from those countries who don't support freedoms for all their citizens.
Promoting Human Rights "We declare that human rights are all for all of us, all the time: whoever we are and wherever we are from; no matter our class, our opinions, our sexual orientation," quoted from United Nation's High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein. Indeed, human rights are all for us, involved in every action you make that includes someone who differs from you. Human rights, is not for just one race, nor for the rich. Though you might not realize it, even that near discriminatory act that you did can affect someone, even if it does not affect you. Human rights have an important role to each person's life; therefore, human rights should be protected and promoted by the people in their society, by embracing their
This is all because according to Philippine Constitution children whose parents are not married is unlawful. Unlawful in the way that it is classified as unwanted and the child’s parents have not done sacramental process which is called marriage. Marriage for the homosexual couples is not entertained because same-sex marriage is not allowed in the Catholic community. Same-sex marriage is also the reason why it is also strongly supported by the religious community, for it is not good in the eyes of God because, as what they stated that woman is created for man, neither woman to woman, nor man to man. Also, it is not good in the eyes of other people since Philippines is a religious country.
