It violates their freedoms. Same sex marriage is illegal in majority of the world and the laws are unlikely to change in the near future. Gay marriage is a controversial issue that people have been fighting for years and it has finally come to the surface. We should take charge of it and bring a change. The issue that the paper deals with is, why does your gender or sex have to play such a significant role in marriage?
As long as same sex marriage is not directly affecting society marriage should be allowed. In the counter argument written by Grigg’s he tries to list different ways that same sex marriage effects society but none of his arguments listed are points that can’t be easily argued, which is what made Michaelson’s argument stronger than Griggs. Michaelson also speaks from first person experience which further strengthens his use of ethos. By using personal pronouns such as I, and my Michaelson is informing the reader that he himself has personally experienced the struggles of same sex marriage. Receiving a first-hand source makes an argument more credible as well.
People starting seeking a different and better way to represent reality and the world they lived in. Society’s values were challenged by new viewpoints of traditionalism as the old ways faded. It was easy for an individual to be absorbed into these new viewpoints and to question their beliefs. Again, this trial took a huge toll on people and many widespread changes arose in culture and throughout American society. Individuals began to reject religion and accepted these new viewpoints of modernism.This process of traditional views being rejected is still happening today, this has been evolving over a long period of time, starting in the 20’s.
But one of the important issues discussed in hot debates is the Gay marriage that has recently been permitted in the States. This was a real change in the whole country; many people welcomed the idea because they believe in total freedom of the human being and citizens’ liberties. But other groups mostly coming from religious backgrounds stood against what has been restructured in the amendment concerning this point. The debate will never come to an end simply because proponents and opponents will see it from different angles and no one will decide who is right and who is
• Methods of research: • Using books, written theories and internet research and findings to discover the representation of women in society. I will compare the different theories constructed in my research to find a common thread that can be analysed. The argument will be structured as follows: - Introduction: This will include the definition and meaning behind the gaze and introduce my stance on how woman are represented. In this paragraph I will give context and introduce to the reader what my essay will be about – by discussing the gaze theory and linking it to how woman are generally represented. - Body: This will include all theories, descriptions and research that I have gathered about the gaze and how it inks to woman in history and modern day, how the gaze of woman has changed through time, and how the gaze has altered power.
The Republican Party often does not want stricter gun laws because the problem at hand is not the gun itself, but the individual wielding the gun. The fight for gun control has been a never-ending battle in recent years amongst the Republican and Democratic Party. How the media portrays gun control has a lot to do with how people view guns and the gun laws at hand; for example, CNN and Fox news are best known for having completely different views and reporting styles. In a CNN article titled “NRA chief accuses Democrats of pushing ‘socialist’ agenda in the wake of the Florida shooting” written by Lauren Fox it discusses the tension between the NRA and Democrats when it comes to gun control. (Fox, 2018) The NRA accused Democrats of trying to take away guns from gun owners after a speech that was delivered only a week after the Florida shooting.
But this is not historically accurate if we look at Stonewall. As I have discussed in the first paragraph on Stonewall’s history, most of the patrons of Stonewall Inn who were active in the riots were transsexual women of colour. To this, Emmerich reacted stating the following: "You have to understand one thing: I didn't make this movie only for gay people, I made it also for straight people," (Emmerich qtd. in Ehrich Dowd, People Magazine) Even though it is understandable that Emmerich wanted to further his reach far beyond
2.9 Personal Response Chelsea Sherry-Tau Title: Same Love Singer/Songwriter: Macklemore featuring Ryan Lewis Text: Song When the song, Same Love, was released in 2012 by rappers and singers Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, there was a lot of controversy within social media about whether the song spoke of good or bad morals. The song’s intention is to educate those in society who still don’t understand how to gain equality for homosexuals and how to accept everybody’s sexual preferences. I appreciated how the lyrics included different ideas that value the intention. The song questioned about whether we should reassess society’s look on religion, and also expressed on how everyone deserves to have equal rights and be accepted, and how society

Joey Cho Mrs. Middleton English 10 17 October 2016 Persuasive Research Essay Outline Introduction LGBT/ same-sex marriage is one of the most heated and controversial debates in our current society. Unlike the past thousands of years whereas marriage was defined as a legal union between a man and a woman, now the concept of marriage has been extended to a broader context. “Homosexuality” in most cultures is viewed as a disgrace, and it is often considered as a great sin from a religious aspect. But now our society has evolved, we gained clarity and reasons.
