Gay Marriage Rights Are Totally Like...Wrong?
Gay marriage rights have been a big issue for all gay people for the last couple of decades and it is slowly, but surely becoming an accepted union of love for more and more people in world. During the time I am writing this, at the end of the first quarter of 2011, we have about 10 countries in the world, which allow a gay person to be free in whatever they do, anywhere in the country, just like a "normal" straight person. Canada is one of them and it makes me INSANELY proud to be living in such a progressive country, during a time when the world as a whole has not reached that point on gay marriage rights.
The most influential country in the world has yet to come together on a decision on this. The United States of American is almost split 50/50 an the issue of gay marriage rights. A poll taken in 2010 shows that 52 percent respondents were in favor of gay marriage. It was the first time where that percentage has been over 50%. It was at 46% in 2009, and probably even lower the year before. This shows how more and more people are finally growing up. Finally understanding the importance of gay marriage rights, and how they represent how forward thinking a country is. It may also be cause people in power who hold those out-dated values are dying and more young, free thinkers are getting in positions where they can take action.
Why is this happening? How are opinions changing on gay marriage rights? Well in addition to the fact that more and more openly gay people are popping up in the media, as well as famous artists advocating the normality of being gay (No H8, Lady Gaga), it is totally natural and unchangeable and people are finally thinking twice with open minds and hearts about their opinion. Support for gay marriage rights is support for love. And love always prevails. The growing support for gay marriage rights demonstrates this. No matter how much the people in power try to control the lives of gay people, they will never succeed. Nor will the people that say it is a choice and try to pass that belief to others. But those people really didn't have any influence on the masses anyways and they just look ignorant and stupid.
And no, I'm sorry, it is not ignorant for me to totally disregard the idea that being gay is a choice and to automatically think people who think that are uneducated because, guess what, I am gay, so I would know. People who aren't gay are making claims about a choice that, I guess they made themselves? So they look double ignorant and stupid. So haters, I know you're supposed to hate, but at least look intelligent when you hate, because you just look dumb and no one will take you seriously. Which is actually a good thing, so keep doing what you do!
There are many reasons that ignorant people in the world have come up with to demonstrate their stance against gay marriage rights. I'm not going to lie, some are pretty creative, and I would have never thought of them. But I don't know how people can sit and think about something they hate so much and come up with these ridiculous reasons. The common denominator in all these reasons is that they are all wrong. Many of them sound like they were created by kids with homophobic parents, which is exactly what is it in most cases, but these kids are 30+ and have some power of influence. A reason against gays marriage rights is always based on hate, and reasons based on hate have no foundation and be can easily be rebutted.
