Senior fellow for policy studies, Peter Sprigg in a Question and Answer article titled “What’s Wrong With Letting Same-Sex Couples Marry?” addresses this matter of controversy by stating-in his opinion- the ‘vast negative consequences’ concerning gay marriage equality. In order to answer these questions, Sprigg uses a cataloging of biased satire, as opposed to factual information in backing up his opinions. Thus, considering his audience consists of those who are for gay rights or, at the least, do not understand such a negative connotation regarding what could be an incredibly life-changing milestone for many, I am very much against his close-minded responses. Furthermore, although it is technically lnews learning that Peter Sprigg in particular thinks allowing gay couples to marry is wrong I can’t say that I’m definitively taken aback when I discover that yet another individual carries this mindset that, “Homosexual relationships are not marriage”(Sprigg P.2), though disappointing nonetheless. Thus, the author chose this ‘Question-Answer’

She fears that redefining marriage to include same-sex marriage may cause damage to the values of having both a mother and a father. Gallagher is against legalization of gay marriages, in order to achieve the greater good.
The world around us lacks a basic comprehension of human rights, and among those issues is of rights towards the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and others (LGBTQ+) community. Homophobia is immoral, and putting an end to it would eminently improve the state of humanity, as acceptance is key in viewing a brighter future where we can be who we are and love who we want to without fear of consequences or hate. A wide range of issues, big to small, need to be acknowledged and attended to in order to move forwards in creating a hate-free environment for people of all sexualities and genders to feel a part of. To begin, many LGBTQ+ students are deprived of sexual education that includes homosexuality in the curriculum, as well as feeling safe at school. By providing more knowledge towards having safe intercourse to LGBTQ+ students, it may benefit

Your dad doesn’t want anyone to think of him as ignorant so he’s trying to adjust his thoughts on LGBT rights and transgender rights.” “So I can tell him?” I asked excitedly. “It’s safe to come out?” Mom sighs and smiles sadly, like she knew I would ask that. “No, sweetie. Not yet anyway.” She goes on to tell me about how just a few years before I was born, my father viewed homosexuality as disgusting and unnatural.
Conversion Therapy Although many people have strong convictions against gay people, sometimes leading parents to attempt to change their children’s sexual orientation, it should be banned on a national level for parents to be able to force their children under the age of 18 into conversion therapy because it is unconstitutional, it evidently damages the child's wellbeing, and the methods have never even been proven by credible research. Members of the ex-gay (anti-LGBT) movement argue that banning reparative therapy is an infringement on the rights to freedom of speech and religion, while parents following this movement have similar feelings and believe that putting their child through conversion therapy will help them be ridded of an "unwanted

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.
Homosexuality can be defined as a sexual orientation and a sense of personal and social identity with or without alternative life style.
