FC: Homosexuality By: Dylan Manwarren
1: What do you think of when you hear homosexuality? Do you think of two men doing nothing but having sex? When I hear that word I think of two people being in love. Many Americans believe homosexuality is wrong, if you are one of those Americans maybe I can change your opinion on this matter.
2: The Enviroment and the effects on the homosexual community.
3: There are many theories why homosexuals are homosexuals, here are some. Scientists say that environmental forces have a huge deal to making someone homosexual. Scientists are looking for a cure or diagnosis for homosexuality as if it’s some kind of bad thing. The previous fact may be influenced by homophobia. Homophobia is an extreme fear of homosexual people. Many homophobic people believe that homosexuals only have sex, that they don’t have any sort of relationship with each other (Williams).
4: I personally believe that these people don’t understand what their judging and they never have so they try to do whatever they can to block out the idea of homosexuality from their mind. No matter how hard people try we can never end homophobia but we can change people’s opinions (Williams).
5: Many homosexual people feel that a good way to end homophobia is to show that Homosexual people are human beings and have the same relationship as straight people do. I believe that the only true fact is that there is no real reason why someone is homosexual; I believe it’s a choice (Williams).
6: HRC (Human Rights Campaign)
7: There are many organizations in the world that are trying to support and help out the homosexual world. HRC or Human Rights Campaign is one the biggest organizations to help the homosexual community. HRC wants the Homosexual community to feel safe and secure in the world and not fear hate crimes. Hate crimes are designed to scare a certain race or whomever they directed towards ("Marriage").
8: You can’t scare someone from being Homosexual, it’s not a habit, it’s their sexuality. HRC believe that a Domestic partnership is not the same thing as a marriage; it also doesn’t have the same benefits. Every family whether homosexual or not deserves to have social security benefits ("Marriage")
9: If a partner dies in a domestic partnership then the widow does not have the same rights as a marriage. HRC is helping many controversial topics, such as getting every American equal health care otherwise known as Divided we fail ("Marriage").
10: Gay Marriage
11: The Constitution protects interracial marriage and straight marriage, so why shouldn't it protect homosexual marriage? (Friedman)
12: Many people blame homosexuals for the worlds problems but there are many more bigger problems (Friedman).
13: Gay couples love, support, and commit just as much as straight couples. gay marriage is legal in Canada (Friedman).
14: No church has to hold a marriage ceremony. its not about religion, its about equal rights (Friedman). | Many homosexuals say that it doesn't matter what the law says, their still married in the heart (Friedman).
15: So should homosexuals be allowed to marry? Is homosexuality a choice or a disease? I believe Americans are to blind to open their eyes to see that homosexuality has and always will be around us. homosexuality isn't some bug you can destroy, it is a choice and a human beings choice. if you are to ignorant to have feelings for a fellow human who may be going through the same exact problems as you then you are truly heartless.
