Please Legalize Gay Marriage

Please Legalize Gay Marriage

Anonymous's picture
President Obama In the United States of America, all people are created equal. Despite this, homosexual people are not afforded the same rights as heterosexual people. The Constitution does not mention marriage, so the laws regarding marriage equality are left up to the states individually. While states’ rights are essential to fine tuning federal laws within each unique state, they should not restrict the rights of any United States citizen. Not letting homosexuals marry deprives them of these rights. Every American develops his/her own set of morals and values based on family upbringing, religion, interactions with peers, etc. We all develop complex ideas of what we believe to be good vs. bad, right vs. wrong, and moral vs. immoral. America has always embraced this complexity, and in doing so has corrected several imperfections in its civil rights laws, most notably regarding women and black people. We fixed these aspects of our country because we realized that, on a human level, women and black people are no different than white men. On that same human level, homosexual people are no different than heterosexual people. One human should be allowed to marry another one human. Heterosexual humans are humans. Homosexual humans are humans. -Ari Kaplan
