I believe that the issue of gay marriage is a huge problem in the world today. I think that everyone should have the right to marry who they want to marry. Why would someone else's marriage effect you? If you don't believe in marrying someone of the same sex then don't marry someone of the same gender. In the song Macklemore states "man that's gay gets dropped on a daily, we become so numb to what er are saying" (2:23). I totally agree with him being gay is often used in a way that makes being gay equal to something being stupid, or to offend someone. I do understand that often people don't mean to offend anyone but I think we need to start thinking before we speak. If I wanted to say something was stupid i would go around saying "Man that's so science" because science has nothing to do with being stupid, and neither does being gay. Being gay is not a choice and I don't think people should have their rights as a human taken away because of something that isn't even their choice.
I do understand that it can make some people uncomfortable and I don't think that makes you a bad person but I think a gay person should be able to hold hands in public and feel comfortable doing it without being judged just as much as a straight couple are able to do it. I know that some people were raised in homes where being gay is not right, and I understand sometimes it can be hard to look at other peoples perspective, but I think sometimes people don't try hard enough to understand where other people are coming from. I think that if someone of the same sex makes you happy then be with them and show the world how happy they make you.
It disgusts me that in some countries you are unable to marry who you want. I believe that is a violation of human rights. If I can marry who I want to marry then why can't someone who is gay do the same thing. It angers me that I have the right to be happy with the person I want to be with, but someone who is gay doesn't.
