DARLINE RODRIGUEZ WHAT ARE GAY RIGHTS?
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gay+rights GAY MARRIAGE AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE Equal civil and social rights for homosexuals 1.As of May 10, 2012, gay marriage has been legalized in the following eight states: Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Washington, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
2.Gay marriages can bring financial gain to state and local governments. Benefits from gay marriage comes from marriage licenses, higher income taxes and decreases the costs in state benefit programs.
3.Allowing same-sex couples to marry will give them access to basic rights such as hospital visitation during an illness, taxation and inheritance rights, access to family health coverage, and protection in the event of the relationship ending. ENDA It confuses children about gender roles and expectations of society, and only a man & woman can pro-create.
The gay way of living is not something to be encouraged, as a lot of research shows it leads to a much lower life expectancy, psychological disorders, and other problems.
29 percent of the teenager of homosexual parents had been specifically subjected to sexual molestation by their homosexual parents. Income taxes will be increased to make up for the marriage tax benefits given to homosexual couples and to pay for the social costs resulting from the increase in illegitimacy.
In eighty-five per cent of cases, violence and harassment were preceded or accompanied by homophobic language.
Gay marriage will lead to more children being raised in same-sex households which is not appropriate for them because they should be raised between a man and a woman. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) would prohibit employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
ENDA is modeled on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employment discrimination based on race, religion, gender, national origin, and color.
89% of Americans believe gay people should have equal job opportunities. http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Gay_and_lesbian_issues_discrimination There is no law suggesting that gay nor lesbian couples are limited to as unfit parents or are incapable to establish a parental figure for said adopted child.
The environment at home with lesbian or gay parents are as successfully to support a child's development as those with heterosexual parents.
There is no initiative link for adopted children to likely be raised insufficiently by gay couples nor is the adopted child likely to suffer from mal-parent practice or domestic violence. GAYS SHOULDN'T ADOPT http://www.allaboutlove.org/cons-of-same-sex-marriage.htm GAYS NOT BEING ALLOWED IN THE MILITARY It very easily causes tension between members of the unit because it is a very unnatural lifestyle.
Soldiers naturally protect each other but, if they know they are gay can cause problems to care less for that person.
Many soldiers believe it is hard to get past all the stereo types that come with the way gays live and think they are child molesters. http://www.debate.org/opinions/should-gays-be-allowed-to-serve-openly-in-the-us-military http://aclu.procon.org/view.answers.php?questionID=000709 http://gaymarriage.procon.org/ http://www.civilrights.org/lgbt/enda/ GAYS BEING ABLE TO ADOPT Scenario 1:
