Gay Pride Flag

Gay Pride Flag

This blog is meant to educate students of Miami University about same-sex marriage and the denial of homosexual’s legal rights.  Same-sex marriage is just how it sounds, the marriage between two people of the same sex, whether it be two men or two women.  According to dictionary.com, marriage is, “the social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc.”  Thus, we are forced to verify between marriage and same-sex marriage because of the distinction of “man and woman”.  It is stated in the Constitution of the United States that all men are created equal, and even if that does not include women, two men are created equal, thus making them have equal rights.  If one of those men chooses to marry a woman, it is his right as an American citizen.  If the other chooses to marry a man, it is his right as well because they were created equal.

It is your decision whether to agree with same-sex marriage or not, but I urge you to look at the facts and to make an informative decision.  There are many pros for homosexuals if it is legalized and no cons that could effect you, so please become informed!
