Gay Marriage
Homosexuals should be allowed to marry because the disallowance of it violates their constitutional rights. Marriage is an institution long recognized by our government under the right to pursue happiness, and denying that right to any couple, regardless of gender, is unconstitutional. This argument, though, is not disputed. In fact, none of the arguments raised in opposition to the allowance of homosexual marriages takes into account the constitutional rights afforded to all humans. The argu...

Gay Marriage
Discrimination is the Voice of Ignorance Marriage is one of the fundamental establishments of the United States. As a young person, one looks forward to many goals in their lifetime: career success, a good life, and very often marriage to the person they love and a family together. This is one of the biggest parts of our "American life" and culture. Very few heterosexuals would be willing to put their right to marry on a ballot for voter approval, or even in their wildest dreams [nightmares?] ha...

Legalizing Gay Marriages
“Would legalization of gay marriage be good for the gay community?” Sam Isaacson wrote an article analyzing the opinion of the gay community on legalizing same sex marriages. It is somewhat of a controversial issue with the gay community whether or not marriage is a good thing. He divides the community into two groups: integrationists and liberationists. The controversy is caused because of these two different philosophical views. The integrationists want to be as normal as can be. They want...

Gay Marriage
Gay Marriage Just about anyone would tell you they're in favor of equal rights for homosexuals. Just name the situation, and ask. They'll all say, yes, gays should have the same rights in housing, jobs, public accommodations, equal access to government benefits, and equal protection of the law. The fact is, nearly three people in four in the U.S. oppose gay marriage, almost the same proportion as are otherwise supportive of gay rights. This means that many of the same people who are even pa...

Gay Marriages
For as long as the institution of marriage has been around, so too has the belief that it represents the union of one man and one woman. Now gay men and lesbians are challenging that institution. They believe that their relationships mean the same in their sphere as heterosexual marriages do in our sphere. Homosexuals would like to see their marriages legalized. In 1991 three gay couples filed a lawsuit, in Hawaii, for denying them marriage licenses. They claim that the refusal amounts to ...

Gay Marriage
[Homosexuality] is an abomination. These few words were spoken more than two thousand years ago by Moses, who was conveying the ordinances of the Lord God. Today they are still the conviction of millions, including myself. Nevertheless, even though we may feel strongly against carnal relationships and particularly marriages between two people of the same sex, morals cannot be proven; morals cannot be placed on a witness stand and judged for the purpose of determining whose morals are an acce...

Gay Marriage
Max and his "sweetheart" have been together nearly five years, longer than a lot of people their age. They're good to each other: they call each other pet names, they quit smoking together, and their favorite activity is cooking. A year ago, they moved into their very own house. It's outside of the city, but it has a yard big enough for their two dogs to roam, and for them to spend quality time together. Once a friend asked Max how long-term gay relationships are different than the heterosexual ...

Gay Marriages
The constitution states that all men are created equal. If this is true, then why is there so much controversy involving a person's sexual preference? Martin Luther King said it best when he stated that everyone has a dream. Why then rain on someone's dream when all they want to do is love each other? Homosexuals are fighting for what they deserve: the freedom that every citizen has the right to love whoever they want to. Let us discuss what gay relationships are really all about. The stereotyp...

We are granted the freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion, the right to vote, right to bear arms and the right to the pursuit of happiness. But is this really the case?

A Time Essay Gay Marriage
If gay marriages are O.K., then what about polygamy? Or incest? The House of Representatives may have passed legislation last week opposing gay marriage, but the people will soon be trumped by the courts. In September the judges of the Hawaii Supreme Court are expected to legalize gay marriage. Once done there, gay marriage--like quickie Nevada divorces--will have to be recognized "under the full faith and credit clause of the Constitution" throughout the rest of the U.S. Gay marriage is coming...

THE OPPRESSED GENDER It has been said that women are a universally oppressed gender. Unfortunately, I feel that this statement is totally true. The view that women are oppressed simply because men and most women too, have the wrong ideas about women can be too optimistic. Liberating women is seen as just a matter of persuasion and education, of explaining to men that they have got it wrong and that they really should share the housework and the top jobs because it would be more fair. History...
