    What is your believe about gay rights in America?

    I believe that all persons that are citizens of this country should have equal rights.  If heterosexuals have right marry and be miserable, homosexuals and bisexuals should have that same right.

    I believe that everyone is entitled to the same rights regardless of their sexual orientation. To me, a simple way to solve the entire uproar over gay rights is to come up with a different name for their unions.

    If the word "Marriage" is for a man and a woman only then why not just create a word that defines a union between a man and a man or a woman and a woman. Perhaps the word "Union" could take care of this issue.smile Imagine a one word solution to such a huge problem.

    There are already semantics written into state law - but without the full rights of a marriage.
    BTW this unions are only available for same sex couples only - isn't that reverse discrimination?

    I'm talking about Hawaii and I just wanted to have hospital and medical rights with an other sex friend. Wasn't allowed because wasn't same sex!

    Besides it's not just same & opposite sexes - Persons may be female, male, intersexed, or hermaphodrite.

    I believe that it's the insurance companies who don't want to extend benefits to non-traditional families for greater profits.

    Sexual preferences are a huge thing in today's society, and America protects the right of homosexuals. Humans have the right to their on choices, but humanity will bear the consequences in the end, due to such poor judgement biologically speaking, only time will tell. read more

    I believe that 'gay rights' are a subset of human rights, necessary because of the pervasive dehumanizing of GLBT folks.  Thankfully, things are getting better, but you only need to read some of the answers already given to see that there's still a way to go.

    The GLBT community face a lot of stereotypes--Openly making out gays (heteros do this A LOT, by the way), perverted, pushy, flashy, et cetera. 

    I have a lot of gay friends.  They never flaunt it.  They respect heterosexuals and never push anything on them.  But what bothers them the most, from what I can see, is how religion in constantly thrown into the argument.  If it's not right to flaunt Wicca or another religion, why do the Christians flaunt and push their religion on other people?  It doesn't happen all the time, but it does happen.

    "Marriage" is viewed as sacred.  But I honestly don't think it's sacred if people like Kim Kardashian can marry and divorce one month later.  But giving the same rights to the GLBT community and calling it a different name is no better.  It still makes it different.

    Everyone deserves to be happy.  If it hurts someone else or yourself, then there is a problem.  GLBT marriage doesn't hurt anyone.  And if there is an issue regarding religion, I think that it's between that couple and God--not a nosy neighbor, religious zealot, or anyone else.

    As a side note--I once argued with someone who equated homosexuality to alcoholism.  I still don't know how to feel about that . . .

    When I think back to the times in America when African Americans and women (among others) were denied basic human rights, it kind of makes me sick to my stomach. But it also makes me proud of my country to see how far we have come. No, equal rights aren't perfect today either, but we're a heck of a lot better off than we were even a few decades ago. Equal rights for the LGBT community is the same battle, just for a new group. And that's why it makes me disgusted and ashamed when there are American's who ignore such an obvious breech of human rights because of a religious text that is (by definition) not based on any facts. People who think gays and lesbians shouldn't have the same rights as heterosexuals, should be ashamed of themselves. You're no better than the racists and the sexists of the past.

    This is a simple one for me....gay rights should be a given.

    Being gay, just like religion and politics is a personal choice. It's nothing i would try, but I dont think of anyone any less for being the way they are. I say, they should have rights just like anyone of any race. I say love is love in all kinds of forms

    People are people regardless of sexual orientation, color, race, religion, gender....and all other "categories" we put them in. As human beings, we should all have equal rights. As a teacher I have seen couple of the same gender raising children and couples of opposite genders raising children. Both sets of parents have the same problems and joys of raising children. As long as two people truly love each other, they should be allowed to marry and enjoy the same rights.
