Adam Levine Supports Gay Marriage!

Adam Levine—white, male, rich, and straight. The most advantaged tiny percentage of the population. So people may ask the question: why would he care to support gay marriage? …Because it shouldn’t matter what your race, gender, financial status, or sexuality is. You marry someone because you love them (most of the time), and who are we to judge whether or not two people that are committed to each other should be able to form that bond?
This image is strong, and my respect for him has definitely grown. I found this Huffington Post article on Adam Levine speaking out about supporting gay marriage, and found his words really inspiring. Although his brother is openly gay, he says that even if he were not, “Someone’s sexual preference is their sexual preference. Let’s move on.”
It is not permissible for a gay person to make any medical decision for their partner when their partner is incapable of doing so in any medical situation unless direct power is given to an attorney. In the case of straight married couples in the state of Michigan, they are able to do so without DPOA.
Straight men and women get married on a whim these days, as if it’s just some casual game that everyone is playing. No one wants to interject because they are afraid of being ostracized, but with the divorce rate being 50%, it’s like marriage is a game of chance. Interestingly enough, the divorce rate for same-sex marriages is lower than for straight couples.
Also, you can’t bring religion into politics, so all the people that complain and argue that same sex marriage is sinful, needs to understand that religion and politics must be treated as separate entities. Your religious beliefs should have no reflection on legalizing or illegalizing gay marriage. When you bring religion into politics, things just get complicated. As a Muslim, it is against our religion to be with someone of the same sex, but I could care less if others are doing it, because its none of my business. And as Adam Levine says in the article, “I don’t know why we’re obsessed with making everything in this country our business, all the time. It seems we’re a little behind on that, and we just need to make it legal and stop caring so much.” My thoughts exactly!

    Reading this made me respect Adam Levine so much more. If two people love each other, it shouldn’t matter if they are a same-sex couple or a heterosexual couple. And I agree that “we just need to make it legal and stop caring so much.” It only seems logical to grant the same rights to everyone in the country, marriage rights included.

    Great post!!
    I personally don’t support gay marriage, but what I don’t do is judge, ridicule, or hate against those who do. I believe that our own personal beliefs are just that-our own! Everyone has a right to what they believe in, support, don’t support etc. I don’t feel the need to try and harass someone simply because they are living a life against what I believe in. If people would put the energy into their own lives that they put so easily into others I think this world would be a better place.

    The only point that I don’t agree with in your post is the fact that the divorce rate for same sex couples is lower than that of opposite sex couples. With the recent changes in our laws I’m not really sure how accurate those stats could be because same sex marriages isn’t something that is legalized everywhere so it’s not a good comparison.
