The rights of LGBT community are still currently seeking universal acceptance. Even though the declaration adopted by the United States in 1948 states, "Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration without distinction of any kind ..." has not helped as it does not cover the sexual orientation of an individual. As a result, some countries in the world are developing techniques and systems to begin the legislative favor and enforcing laws that protect LGBTs against discrimination. Even an influential organization like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are joining to finally eliminate discrimination by constantly protecting them against crimes and advancing equal views on each sexuality. According to Chinggu, LGBT couples around the world were still excluded.
The LGBT community has made progress towards gaining more rights in recent years, although it has been an uphill battle. In the past year alone Australia, Malta, and Germany have legalized gay marriage, with the legalization of gay marriage in the U.S. in 2015 also being a resounding success. In addition, LGBT rights have also become a greater discussion topic in households, radio shows, and broadcasts around the world. In spite of this progress, LGBT individuals and their allies still struggle for the basic human rights they deserve. Discrimination feels like a relic of the past--something Americans struggled against and that the United States outlawed in the 1960s.
In addition, it is true that Japan does not have a tradition or religious prejudice against gay people with violence, but the country does have a lot of things to do before the government legalize gay marriage. For example, child custody or property rights for heterosexual parents. Some people may say that Japan is far behind other countries with respect to same sex marriage, but if you do not solve these problems first, legalization of gay marriage fall into confusion in the end. We just have to wait until Japan will be ready for
Some Americans consider same-sex marriage unethical and should have never been legalized in some states. Then there are the Americans that think it should be the person’s choice and what makes them happy. As of May 15, 2017 64% of Americans think gay marriage should be recognized by the law. Another ethical debate, this one dealing with gender is what bathroom should a transgendered person use. In 4 states there a laws that require a transgender to use the bathroom that matches the gender on their respective birth certificate.
The issue of "homosexuality" seems to have divided the nation. While the matter is still under sub-judice, the debate over the draconian Section 377 continues in the public sphere. It is now no longer is a legal battle as the debate almost settled legally, but the moral argument continues. Ofcourse it is a vague topic as many advocate for it and a lot of people oppose. The fundamental question is whether anyone cares about the moral argument?
For instance, from the Youth Sexuality Study 2011 by the Family Planning Association of Hong Kong, over 95% interviewees regard themselves as heterosexual (while 3% said they don’t know). In such case heterosexual would be regarded as normal. Another reason is that religious dogma usually have certain restrictions on sexuality. For example, in the Christian’s perspective, the god and the bible are clearly against homosexuality. In some countries like Vatican City, Italy and Mexico, the church is a symbol of power where its follower should obey its rules.
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.
In 2011, President Obama abolished the "Don 't Ask, Don 't Tell Policy", allowing openly gay individuals to serve in the United States military. In 2015, the Supreme Court officially ruled that same-sex marriage was to be made legal nationwide, affecting the lives of many of the LGBTQ+ community on that day and age. From tears of joy to silent smiles, each of these accomplishments are another step forward in promoting the identity of the LGBTQ+ population. It is a deep found hope in my generation that I do believe in the message that "love wins". However, even if laws are established to protect our community, it will take a much larger change to eliminate the stigma that surrounds our people
Consider the following phrases: homosexual community, homosexual activist, homosexual marriage. Substitute the word “gay” in any of those cases, and the terms suddenly become far less loaded, so that the ring of disapproval and judgment evaporates. Some gay rights advocates have declared the term off limits. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance against slander, or Glad, has put “homosexual” on its list of offensive terms and in 2006 persuaded The Associated Press, whose stylebook is the widely used by many news organizations, to restrict use of the word. Miss Suhashini a, lecturer of Phycology Department at UTAR who was currently doing research about LGBT has looked at the way the term is used by those who try to portray gays and lesbians as deviant.
Gay marriage is a controversial topic in the world, 94 out o 196 countries have signed a General Assembly declaration of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender rights or sponsored the Humans Rights Council 2011 resolution on LGBT rights however, only 18 countries have approved the same-sex marriages, this is extremely preoccupying because this shows how terribly unequal we are. People fight for everyone’s right to vote, to study, to have a religious belief or to not have it, etc. However if people have been able to gain this rights, then why is it so different to fight for the right to marry whoever you like? Thomas Paine once said “Whatever is my right as a man is also the
