BASED ON SEXUAL ORIENTATION: SHOULD THE GAY COMMUNITY BE ACCEPTED IN OUR SOCIETY GLOBALLY?
What is sexual orientation? According to the American Psychological Association (APA), sexual orientation is an enduring, emotional, romantic, sexual or affectional attraction to another person. Basically, Sexual orientation is about who attracts us. This attraction may lead to love hence marriage. The issue of same-sex marriage is an argument that we have heard of and have strong opinions on. We believe that homosexual couples should have the same marriage rights as heterosexual couples. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Marriage is a basic human right. You cannot tell people they cannot fall in love." While he said this in reference to the marriage between races, the same can be said about homosexuals (Smiley, 2013). Who are we to judge who people get married to or not? Homosexuality, years ago, was unacceptable. Most gay people hid it from others who would discriminate the act. They married the opposite gender in order to live out a "normal" life. There were many instances of homosexuals being prosecuted and discriminated…...

Same-Sex Marriage

...legalization of same-sex marriage is a topic that has been argued in our society for several years. It is also a topic that has been opposed by many people not only because it can be hard to accept marriage between gay couples, but it can also be hard to throw away what is considered to be morals, tradition, the natural law of life and the norms of our society. As the population of homosexuals increases, so does the inequality and the discrimination. We have our society to blame for this. Our civil rights and the Constitution give us many liberties. Civil rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which those who are homosexual are not allowed to chase. If a gay couple cannot be married to the person they love, than this interferes with the pursuit of happiness which violates their freedoms. With that being said, homosexual couples should get the same civil rights as those who are heterosexual regardless of their sexual orientation. As Americans, we pride ourselves in being a democratic nation and a nation of freedom. One of the most important parts of being a democracy is that we, the people, have a say in what happens in our nation through voting, this including same-sex marriage. As of 2010, gays and lesbians can legally marry in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Washington DC, Connecticut, Iowa, and Washington state (Belge). And although this is an improvement in comparison to 20 years ago, having only seven out of fifty states accept marriage between......

Same Sex Marriage

...Same Sex Marriages Michelle Jones University of Phoenix ENG/215 Cassandra Baker June 5, 2012 Same Sex Marriages Is it okay for the government to make same sex marriages illegal because of their own preference? People of all kind want to get marry someday. To tell couples they cannot get marry because of their sex preference is not fair. Everyone should be allowed to get marry if that is what wants to do. Whether it two men or two women it should not matter. They should have the same opportunity a man and woman have to get marry. “Once society was widely conscious of this population, and had an inkling of its extent, there was no question of reverting to the status quo ante. The knowledge itself had changed the political question. Not only were homosexuals not going back into the closet, but the rest of society could not forget that they exist. And there had been little in the way of a "traditional" approach to something that was beyond the margin of public consciousness. So now, the question arose of how to think about—and act toward—this alarming new population. Should it be included in or excluded from the body politic, and on what terms?”( McCarthy, 2012). Same sex people just want to be trust like everyone else. They want same benefits that other couples get. People have to expect their same sex marriages but it should be reason not to allow them to get marry. It is against the law for them to be against what is right. It is against......

Should Same Sex Marriage Be Allowed??

...Should Same Sex Marriage Be Allowed?? I. Introduction: Is same sex marriage acceptable in our society? Is it such a problem that has to be restricted? Now a day’s lesbians and gays are allowed in our society, they are called the third sex. Third sexes are everywhere, in office, school, even in public places, but they are still treated as aliens, they were like scattering disease that no one wants to get in touch with them, they receive hatred, bullying or discrimination from other people. But then we should realize they also have feelings, they were also hurt by the judgments of other. Here is another issue about third sex, the same sex marriage. It’s been the talk of the town, because religions oppose to it. Same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage) is marriage between two persons of the same biological sex or gender identity. Supporters of legal recognition for same-sex marriage typically refer to such recognition as marriage equality. The introduction of same-sex marriage has varied by jurisdiction, resulting from legislative changes to marriage laws, court challenges based on constitutional guarantees of equality, or a combination of the two. In some countries, allowing same-sex couples to marry replaced a previous system of civil unions or registered partnerships. The recognition of such marriages is a civil rights, political, social, moral, and religious issue in many nations. Conflicts arise over whether same-sex couples......

Why Is Our Community Growing Sick?

...HUM111 – Week 7 Why is Our Community Growing Sick? Dear Community, After our small suburban community was built, we thought we had it all. Nice homes, lawns, neighbors, and a safe environment for our children to grow up in. That is until many of the tenants living in the community grew ill one right after the other with the same symptoms as the previous person. So our question is; “Why has our little community been negatively affected with a similar unknown illness and other communities have not? It is just ours.” This serious illness could potentially become a horrible outbreak if something is not done and it may even start causing deaths among our community. Some people in our local community, including myself, have come together in order to investigate what could be causing this airborne illness. We have searched the web for an ample amount of time to see how we could determine the cause of the outbreak. In this article, we have provided a list of all the precautions we have taken as a community. We all have taken samples of water from our homes and had the local water company test the sample to see if there was any contamination that could cause an illness like this. According to the local water company, all results for the community were negative. Everyone in the community has had professional come inspect their home to determine if there was an infestation of unwanted critters or mold that could be flaring up allergies and causing us to get sick. The results to......

Same-Sex Marriage

...Same-Sex Marriage: The Problems with DOMA and the Pursuit for Equality Believe it or not, same-sex marriage has been around since ancient times. At least two Roman Emperors, Nero and Elagabalus, were in gay unions. It wasn’t until the advent of Christianity that the practice of same sex marriage was out-lawed by the emperors Constantius II and Constans in 342 AD and has continued to be through-out most of the world until the twenty-first century (Boswell 83). With the advent of gay rights movement in many industrialized countries, same-sex marriage has become more accepted. A prime example of this is what lawmakers in the state of New York did on June 24, 2011. With a thirty-three to twenty-nine vote, the legislature legalized same-sex marriage, making it the largest state where gay and lesbian couples can now get married (New York Times 2011). However, Even with recent legalization of gay marriage in some parts of the nation there are still states that are strongly against it. States such as Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska and Nevada have, by popular vote, passed Defense of Marriage Acts (DOMAs) as a constitutional amendment. This gives states the legal right not to recognize same-sex marriage from other states where it is legal. I will argue that DOMA legislation is discriminatory and that same-sex couples have a legal right to the same marriage benefits and public acknowledgment enjoyed by heterosexual couples. Also, that second-class remedies such as civil unions......

Should Same Sex Be Legalized

...Should Same-Sex Marriage be Legalized? Introduction to Ethics & Social Responsibility SOC 120 Should Same-Sex Marriage be Legalized? For many years, the debate of should same-sex marriage be legalized has been a topic unsettled. I believe that same-sex marriage should be legalized because not allowing same-sex marriage is discrimination against minorities, protected by the constitution, and is not a sin according to Bible verses. Those against the idea argue homosexuality is a sin, marriage should be between a man and a woman, and same-sex marriage will weaken the institution of marriage. So which side is correct? And what side are you on? This essay will provide you with the facts about same-sex marriage so that you will be able to answer these questions and form an educated opinion on the topic. When arguing if homosexuality is wrong or right, religious arguments often quote scriptures. The problem with this is that the scriptures being quote have more to the meaning than homosexuality. For example, in Genesis 2:18-25 (NIV), when God created Adam and Eve, one of the biggest sayings is that “God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.” The first problem with using this saying is that it is true God created male and female, as this is the way you reproduce. The verse is not indicating that God created Adam and Eve as husband and wife. Another argument from this verse is that “God created our body’s to be used in a certain way, and we should not use them in......

Same Sex Marriage

...Equality in Same Sex Marriages Should same-sex-marriage be legalized? Evidently, we as a nation are hesitant on this issue. Many people are against same sex marriage because of numerous reasons such as, religious beliefs or because they believe same sex couples could not raise a proper family. Although there are countless individuals against this issue gays, lesbians, and bisexuals (LGB) are fighting for equal rights everyday and will not give up until they get treated the same as any other individual. As time progresses people are becoming more comfortable with gays and lesbians as couples, but to most, marriage signifies the union between a man and a woman as husband and wife. To them they see it no other way. One should see any and every person as a human being; although they have different sexual preferences, they are still human and deserve the same rights as any other person. The right to be human should not be taken away from someone over which gender they fall in love with. Same sex marriage should be allowed and accepted across the nation because the desire to love is a human need; therefore, it is a human right. With this said, any human being has the right to equality amongst their society, they should not be discriminated against, or have someone with an upper hand try to change the constitutional meaning of rights for gay people under the Constitution of the United States. We begin with the rights to equality among homosexuals and the society. When......

“Why We Should Carry Out Research in Our Society”

...IMPORTANCE OF RESEARCH IN THE SOCIETY” A lot of what we do in our daily lives is based on common sense, what we have learnt from others or what we have learnt through personal experience or observation. But sometimes common sense is not the best approach and sometimes there are conflicting theories about what is best or what works in a particular situation. Moreover, what works in one situation or for one condition might be ineffective or even dangerous in another, or when combined with other measures. Professionals cannot afford to take risks hence research is needed. Common sense approaches may overlook the impact of external factors which may contribute to what is observed. There are gaps in knowledge, theories about how something might work better and ideas for improvement. The study of research provides one with knowledge and skills one needs to solve problems and meet the challenges of a fast-paced decision-making environment. C. C Crawford defines research as a systematic and refined technique of thinking, employing specialized tools, instruments and procedures in order to obtain a more adequate solution to a Problem. Social research is conducted to explore a topic, to provide a beginning familiarity with that topic. This purpose is typically when a researcher is examining a new interest or when the subject of study is itself relatively new and unstudied. When carrying out research in the Society, it will include the following types of research: 1. Basic......

Same-Sex Marriage Argument

...Same-Sex Marriage Argument Sarah Springstube PHI103 Informal Logic Instructor DeFusco August 4, 2014 Same-sex marriage has been an issue among society for many years. Not all people understand there is no ban on same sex-marriage nor is it illegal. In all fifty states there are couples of the same sex who live together, ones who choose their professional job to be in a workplace where joint benefits are offered, and ones who choose a religious community which accepts their relationship. Those who believe this is an issue and feel it should be illegal were likely raised to believe it is wrong to marry someone of the same gender. Whether these people in society were raised by what their religion believes or what their families have taught them to believe it is one’s own beliefs that determine a person to feel whether such an act as same-sex marriage is wrong or right. What’s at issue is whether the government will recognize such relationships as marriages—and then force every citizen, house of worship and business to do so as well. At issue is whether policy will coerce and compel others to recognize and affirm same-sex relationships as marriages (Anderson, 2013). The first premise in this argument; All same-sex couples have the right to be married, it is not illegal. Second premise; Same-sex couples need to be treated equal. This leads us to the conclusion. The conclusion is; Same-sex couples need government approval to be accepted in the public eye. After......

...gender, which would include same-sex couples (Wohlsen & Hoag, 2009). Clearly, the effects of this vote will be far-reaching and long lasting. Advocates of Proposition 8 urge people to consider many consequences prior to voting. The following will explore counter arguments effecting these consequences and show that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional as it “violates the due process and equal protection rights of gays and lesbians under the U.S. Constitution by denying them the right to marry the person of their choice and by singling them out for disparate treatment without a legitimate rationale” (Ashby, 2010). Same Sex Marriage: Overturn Ban on Same Sex Marriage in California An Argument to Vote No on Proposition 8 During the hearing, it was argued that Propositions 8’s withdrawal of the right of marriage from gays and lesbians was unconstitutional as it violates their civil rights. The reason being was, in the 5 months prior to the ruling of Proposition 8, gay and lesbian couples enjoyed the right to marry as it had been ruled legal in the state of California, only to have it taken away with the advent of Proposition 8’s gay marriage ban. The judges appeared troubled over whether they could recognize marriage as a civil right for all same-sex couples or only (recognize) those (marriages) in states that already grant gays the rights of marriage without the title. Theodore Olson - who argued a portion of the case on behalf of the two same-sex couples who sued to......

Why the Society Should Be for Wearing Uniforms

...Running Head: FOR SCHOOL UNIFORMS Main Title: Why the Society Should Be For Wearing Uniforms Emillye Edington Southern University of Shreveport Instructor: Joyce Cottonham 1 FOR SCHOOL UNIFORMS 2 Why Society Should Be For School Uniforms There are many resources that suggest that uniforms should be worn nationwide not only in private schools, but public schools as well. If we take into consideration that it may help children to behave more effentily in school then school systems could be better as well. There are many reasons as to why it could make children behave better. Bullying in schools could be decreased, unity could increase, and parents could save money by purchasing uniforms. Although bulling in schools is a worldwide epidemic that can create negative consequences, if the students wore uniforms we could minimize this horrific behavior. Students should not have to worry about if their clothes are good enough to please someone else’s expectations. According to Laura Clark, “Having a uniform helps to reduce bullying in school. Students at schools without uniform codes were liable to be bullied for the way they dressed the study found.” Teenagers who took part in the Oxford Brookes University survey said dress codes acted as a social leveler and reduced the risk of children being picked on for wearing “weird” clothes. Maybe we can decrease bullying by having school uniforms for the dress code. Having every student dress just alike......

Should Same-Sex Marriage Be Legalized?

...Should Same-Sex Marriage Be Legalized? The Merriam-Webster defines marriage as, “the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage. Even Merriam-Webster has included same sex marriage in its definition, so why is society not willing to accept this union. Is it religious beliefs or personal belief that makes people take opposing sides? Does involving children into the equation change a person’s views? Marriage is based on the mutual love and respect of two people who decides to spend the rest of their lives together, why does government have the right to impose on that love? Homosexuality and Christianity is a continuous debated throughout churches all across the world. Many churches still refuse to allow homosexuals to enter their sanctuary. Christians believe that homosexuality is a choice and that it is a forgivable sin, if the homosexual changes their ways God will erase the past transgressions. Many churches have different views on homosexuality. While the United Church of Christ, allows its homosexual members to become ordained ministers, while Pentecostals are against same-sex marriages and won’t allow pastors that are homosexuals. The debate continues. There are numerous passages in the Bible that denounce homosexuality. One particular verse, I Corinthians 6:9...

Same-Sex Marriage and Its Affect on Society

...Same-Sex Marriage and Its Affect on Society April 9, 2011 Same-Sex Marriage and Its Affect on Society Gay marriage is a highly controversial topic that has caused violence, tears, confusion, debate, and unhappiness, and action towards the gay equality movement. The United States stresses how everyone is equal and everyone has the same rights, but if that were true, why are gays and lesbians not allowed to get married. In the recent years, the concept of same-sex marriage has become quite the controversial issue. Many lawsuits, law amendments, and debates of occurred because of this issue. It has not only caused pain to those who are affected by these laws, but it has caused hatred for both those who are affected and those who believe that same-sex marriage should not happen. There are many benefits to same-sex marriages. Same-sex marriage decreases the risk of sexually transmitted diseases amongst the gay community, increases adoptions, and is all about love; therefore same-sex marriages should be legalized. Gays and lesbians have been fighting hard for equality for many years now. Before the fight for same-sex marriage came about, discrimination against homosexuals was the current war that is still in process. In its earlier years, being gay was unacceptable. People had to hide who they truly were in order to avoid being beaten or bullied. During and after the wild 1960s, a lot of people were sleeping with multiple partners and even groups. This led to gays and......

Why Should Same-Sex Marriage Be Legalize?

...12/3/2009 I feel same sex marriages should be legalized because they want the same rights as heterosexual couples. I feel they should be able to have the same rights. Same sex couples should be allowed to marry in the United States. First of all, while it is a relatively new practice that same-sex couples are being granted the same form of legal marital recognition as commonly used by same-sexed couples, recent publicity and debate over the past decade gives an impression that civil marriage for lesbian and gay couples is novel and untested. Some cities have passed laws providing for same sex couples and heterosexual couples, who are living together without being married. To become domestic partners, the partners must register their relationship at a government office and declare that they are in a "committed" relationship. Domestic partnerships provide some but not all of the legal benefits of marriage. Some of the common benefits are the right to coverage on a family health insurance policy, the right to family leave to take care of a sick partner , bereavement leave, visiting rights to hospitals and jails, and rent control benefits (to the same extent a spouse would retain reduced rent if his or her partner died.) I don’t see no harm in a same sex marriage because they are the same person that they have always been the only difference is that they are in a same sex relationship. One of my best friends is in a same sex relationship and she is still the same person she......
