The year 2013 had a lot of law changes; many of the laws affected the everyday people in the world. Expertly the large population of the Gay community, in fact it affected a few of my closest friends and family members. Same states just passed a law allowing same-sex marriages. Many people were not very happy with the courts choice of passing the law. According to the webpage, http://www.tfpstudentaction.org/ argues that people who are against Gay Marriage say 3 reasons why that it is not okay; 1 It Is Not Marriage, 2 It Violates Natural Law, and 3 It Validates and Promotes the Homosexual Lifestyle. (126) As I was reading through the top three reasons why, it made me think “Why are people so mean to someone just like them.” So my argument is that Gay Right should be just like everyone else.
The world never can expect change, to me being Gay is just like being the new “black”. I say this because; African Americans had to face so many hardships just to become equal to the American eye. And now in 2013 the world still cannot accept the fact people are not all the same and that change is going to happen regardless to what people think. www.fasttopten.com reports that More than 50% of married couples in the United States get divorced. We have, by far, the highest divorce rate in the entire world. Is this really the correct way to "respect the sanctity of marriage," as many anti-gay conservatives argue? Allowing gays the opportunity to get married will increase marriage rates because fewer couples will get divorced due to incompatibility or infertility. Legalizing gay marriage will decrease the divorce rate because it simply cannot get any worse than it is right now. (36) There are tons of people in this world that hate homosexuals because of the way they choose to live their lives, and I think they are dead wrong. Why hate a person whose love life or choice of love interest has nothing to do with you? Everyone makes their own decisions in life and whatever you choose to be, is your business and no one else! According to www.library.cqpress.com.proxy1.com Gay rights advocates are making significant gains in winning marriage rights for same-sex couples in the United States and around the world, even though the overwhelming majority of states and countries still limit marriage to opposite-sex couples.
Also another reason why the world should just accept the fact that Gay Marriages and Homosexual are here to stay because, many of times that gay people hold their emotions in are the same people who commit suicide. What kind of person would you be if you were constantly mentally abusing someone? I was always told “if you can’t say anything nice then don’t say anything at all.” Or the golden rule, “Treat people the way you suppose to be treated” http://www.lifesitenews.com/ reports that Teens who self-identify as homosexual are five times more likely than their heterosexual counterparts to attempt suicide, according to a study released last week. (29 ) So how would you feel if you had to go through hell everyday just because you choose to live your life the way it makes you happy? Many people who are homosexual suffer from depression and anxiety from the thought of someone making fun of them or judgment. Just think people who get married would have to live in a world of fear because they just want to be happy with their life. The world wants to decrease the suicide rates, and then the world should allow gay people to have the same rights as others. http://gactupdate.wordpress.com reports that, Suicide is far higher – and rising – among unskilled men than among professional men. Men are more likely to kill themselves if they are from ethnic minorities, unmarried or gay. Men who have been in prison are more likely to commit suicide than those who have not. More women than men attempt suicide each year, but are less likely to succeed. Women tend to choose overdose, which can usually be treated in hospital, while men tend to…
