Most adoption agencies discriminate against gay couples and make it incredibly difficult for them to adopt children. Many agencies will only release children to "married" couples, therefore rejecting stable, loving, homosexual parents. By legalizing gay marriage across all states, adoption agencies will be forced to grant the same respect and rights to homosexual couples. There are over 500,000 children currently living without parents in the United States; gay marriage will increase the chances for thousands of foster children to gain loving parents and families. 

If a child needs a home i dont think it should matter gay, lesbian, or stright. Its a home. im 13 and it doesnt matter to me im a proud fuckin LESBIAN!

Because Gay Marriage is already a reality!

In New York, thousands of gay couples have already gotten married. Manhattan is expecting $9 million revenue during the first year that marriage was legalized. Sure, the economic boost is a plus... but the reality is that millions of gay partners already practice monogamous, loving relationships in the United States. The trouble is that they are not legally protected as married couples, even though their lifestyle mimics marriage! Gays already practice marriage in their homes, so what's wrong with granting the LGBT community the rights they deserve? 

..... GAY!!!!!

No effect on heterosexual community

Gay marriage will have no impact whatsoever on heterosexual communities, just as racial integration in the 60's had no negative impact on White (the majority) communities. It simply overturned an ugly, immoral attitude that upheld segregation. The same goes for legalizing gay marriage; it will grant the LGBT community a right that has been immorally denied to them. 

Gay marriage is legal in 17 of the 50 states why can't it be legal in all 50 of the states.love gays 9 of my friends are gay.

Hospital visitation & medical rights

It's hard to believe that in an era of unimaginable technological advancements, sexuality-based discrimination still exists. Hospitals cannot legally allow gay partners to visit their lovers or receive medical information about their condition without a blood relative present. This deprives partners essential medical rights and undermines the authenticity of their relationship. It leaves many partners unable to make important decisions. Legalizing gay marriage will allow gay couples hospital visitation rights and respect the validity of their marriage by letting them make medical decisions on behalf of their spouses.  

Remember the pursuit of happiness!

Foster societal acceptance of gay couples and gay individuals

Legalizing gay marriage will help to establish a social norm that includes and respects homosexual lifestyles. Couples as well as individuals in the LGBT community will seem less "different" from heterosexual lifestyle, so straight couples and individuals will be more inclined to accept homosexual couples into their communities.

I hate how people say they hate gay marriage because they think they will try to chase after them I think it's really stupid

It's an issue of equal rights

In the 50's, interracial marriage was illegal. But now, modern society understands this to be an unjust law that denied equal rights to couples who loved each other. The issue of gay marriage is no different. Denying marriage to two individuals who love each other is to deny them a fundamental freedom. 

It is a question of equality, not morality, and last I checked, America was suppost to be a place with equal rights for EVERYONE, not just the heterosexuals of society.

The majority of teenage suicides today are being committed because the child was bullied in school as a result of his/her sexual orientation. The same acceptance that will come about due to legalizing gay marriage will show teens that homosexuality is accepted and respected in society. We need to explain to younger generations that being different (in any aspect of our lives) is not a social disability, so that they will never feel the need to take their own lives because they are gay. 

i cry alot sometimes because my parents cant accept the fact that i am who i am and no matter how hard i try i cant stand that

       I am okay with homosexual people. And haters are going to hate, but I don't care. All they're doing is making themselves look ignorant and uneducated. I mean, why would anyone care if homosexuals marry? Even if gay marriage is a "sin", why should such a religious prespective define our legal system? What I am trying to say, is haters may have a problem, but that's on them.        

        So do yourself and others a favor: Don't be a hater.

 

Homosexuality is deferentially and the ones that don't like it fuck them they have to get the idea that we're all human and have our own likes and dislikes just like them, we've all been born from a mothers worm so its none of their bushiness weather they like it or not they just have to deal with it, love is one of the best thing it can happens in life and we all have the rights to enjoy it the way they want to

It will decrease the divorce rate

More than 50% of married couples in the United States get divorced. We have, by far, the highest divorce rate in the entire world. Is this really the correct way to "respect the sanctity of marriage," as many anti-gay conservatives argue? Allowing gays the opportunity to get married will increase marriage rates because less couples will get divorced due to incompatibility or infertility. Legalizing gay marriage will decrease the divorce rate because it simply cannot get any worse than it is right now. 

the article just states that gays and lesbians are causeing problems now and when they get married that theyll be worse. its dumb if u ask m.

Mathematically, an increase in marriage will result in an increase of divorce! You cannot divorce an unmarried person!

Whoever wrote this article was obviously uneducated. Please take the time when posting something on the internet to know all of the facts. Gay marriage cannot be and is not parallel whatsover to the Civil Rights Movement. You are born black. You are born white. You are born with red hair. You may think you are born with homosexuality, but the reality is that you just have the inclination to be homosexual and choose to act upon it. Many people have the inclination to hurt or even kill someone that they are so angry with. Do they act upon it? No. They know it is immorally wrong. Please, take the time to think about what you are saying before you say it. Being born gay is scientifically proven to NOT be a genetic trait. I ask that you please take this article down, for it is truly doing more harm by persuading people with false information.

For quite an articulate person to sweepingly infer the article writer was 'obviously uneducated' based on one post undermines the credibility of the response. The subject of gay marriage polarises people and to broadly crtitique the writer's intelligence based on this tiny sample is unfair and dilutes your opinion on the subject.
