same sex marriage

By bahenaa01 May 11, 2014 270 Words
34% of the United States live near a person of the same sex and they should be allowed to express themselves. There are people all over the United States that are either gay, lesbian, or homosexual. Most people don’t believe in same sex marriage because they believe love is men to men or women to women. Love isn’t found by a man or women it can be found by any person who they feel like they love. Same sex marriage should be legal in every state and country because no one should be discriminated, no one should be judged by how they act towards others, and because everyone should be able to express their selves emotionally. No one should be discriminated for what they believe in. Same sex marriage is also in the constitution and it should be legal. Cass sunstein stated “I think that every state in the union should recognize same-sex marriage.This information helps my argument because it’s going for same sex marriage and the quote says that it should be recognized by every state. It means that even though some people don’t accept same sex marriage it should still be recognized. It’s important because it’s saying that more people should know about it. Some people may not even know that someone they know is the same sex. No one should be judged by the way they act towards others or with others. Rita Mae Brown says that “No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love the only queer people are those who don't love anybody”.
