Most societies view homosexuality as something that is horribly wrong. People view sexual relations between like genders as disgusting. For thousands of years homosexuality has existed on this Earth, but the question is, what makes it so wrong? During my research I have yet to find a legitimate reason as to why homosexuality is so wrong. With homosexual relationships, comes the question about homosexual marriage. Should gay marriage become legal in all fifty United States, or should it stay illegal in some states and remain legal in others? Most of society’s issues and controversies come forth when subjects like religion, the home life, and values are discussed. The real question is who is society to judge someone, who doesn’t care about society’s opinion and only wants happiness for themselves?
Homosexual marriage has been a big issue for about a decade. People have questioned whether or not this type of marriage should be legal. Reasonable explanations haven’t yet been provided as to why it should be illegal. Homosexuals can probably keep their marriages and relationship together better than heterosexuals. Everyone should be able to choose their significant other in confidence, regardless of how society judges them. So with this being said, gay marriage should be legalized in all fifty states.
Gay marriage is legal in about six states. These states are New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont, Iowa, and Washington D.C. Massachusetts was the first state to legalize gay marriage. The first gay wedding took place on May 17, 2004. I like many other individuals, agree that gay marriage should become legal in all fifty states. This is America and here we have equal and civil rights. When all individuals were granted their civil rights, no one excluded gays. Gay men and lesbians are part of a minority group, this means when the Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964, they were granted equal rights and opportunity. This raises my question, why can’t they marry one another, and are we still in discriminatory times. Politically speaking, legalizing gay marriage should have never been an issue. Do we have a contradicting society? How is that we are all supposed to be equal and have equal opportunities without race, gender, religion, etc restricting us, and still view gays and lesbians as inferior to the ‘normal’ heterosexual?
Whoever said being heterosexual was considered ‘normal’? It is not okay for gays to pay taxes that help Social Security, Medicare, and other benefits, when they can’t get what they for from our government. This actually takes away from human right. Everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love and cherish no matter their sexual orientation. Considering the fact that we live in a Democracy, this is very unfair.
People argue that most Americans look at marriage as a religious ceremony. Religious individuals and groups feel that they will become at risk of having to violate their beliefs by being forced to marry...
