My boyfriend forwarded this photo to me today, and it made me laugh. After reading it and showing it to other people I started to think about it further. This sign speaks the truth oh so well. One of the biggest misconceptions about being homosexual is that it’s a choice to be gay. This sign makes the clear statement that even if homosexuality is a choice, who cares? It is the individual’s choice to make and live with. Another big part of the homosexual argument is that if homosexuality was a choice why would anyone want to be put in that predicament to be ridiculed and at times put in danger? This sign speaks to just that! Let’s say for arguing sake that homosexuality is a choice, so many people make choices that put them in far more compromising situations then being homosexual. Drugs, Crime, drinking under the influence, racism, and the list could go on and on; however what these people have in common is that even with all these bad decisions all these people, if not homosexual, could get married.
What is the big deal about homosexual’s getting married. In a country that is supposed to be so open and such a melting pot this is truly sad and discouraging. I am sure; well I hope there are at least far more political reasons behind the issue than homophobia. In actuality the only reason I can see there being a problem with homosexual marriage is on a religious basis. However with that said, the United States is supposed to be a country of religious freedom that was the foundation of coming here back in the beginning. So how can any marriage be denied because of religious reasons? Professor Martin said that Homosexual marriage is going to be this generations “civil fight” I agree completely. Just as racial discrimination was abolished I pray that homosexual marriage will be allowed. It is not right to segregate because of sexual preference, it is not right to segregate for any reason.
