For my research paper, I am considering a paper on same sex marriage. I have chosen this topic because for some reason I feel that same sex marriage should be allowed because people should be allowed to date/marry someone of their choice regardless of their gender. My topic question would be “How do laws that limit marriage to heterosexual effect the life of gay and lesbian people”. This question should be interesting to the audience because it could be a possible reason people choose not to tell people that they are homosexual, and many of these people commit suicide. Legalizing same sex marriage could cause a decline in suicides. Knowing that people actually care about the suicide rates, they should be more supportive towards the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual) marriages. In order to get good research on this topic my research will have to be very detailed. My research will have to be about the suicide rates of people who were homosexual, different opinions of people who think that same sex marriage should be legalized. My plan is for the paper to have information on suicide rates of homosexuals, how homosexuals behave in the society. Once I get more information on the topic everything should flow to fit the paper. The paper could also cover the effect of this on homosexuals. If any petitions were made to legalize same sex marriage, what comments have been made towards the issue, and I could talk about the opinions of speakers who have spoken out either for or against this issue. It may be a little hard for me to have enough information on this topic to write a 1500 word paper. The information that I find may not be enough to cover what I am trying to get at. If I find myself struggling with research and getting it into a paper of 1500 I will revise my question so that I get more information. In the event that I do get enough information the problem will come...
