He challenges this idea by hypothetically giving a situation where a woman does not want to be stereotyped into a category and does not want to fit in with how gender roles are “supposed” to be. Sullivan elaborates on how it should not be considered “bad” to be a homosexual. Not all men should be straight and “masculine”, as gender roles often demand. Sullivan says “The small percentage of people who are gay or lesbian were born…are with the capacity to love and the need to be loved…I will never forget the moment I first kissed another man…Never for a moment did I actually feel or believe any of this was wrong.” Sullivan mentions how he does not understand why society made it so wrong to be gay. However, he felt joy and did not think it was wrong the first time he kissed a man.

So if you are saying that gay marriage should not be allowed to marry based on moral issues, you are in essence saying that morally it is worse to be a homosexual than to be a rapist, murderer, or child molester. It is this kind of thinking that has held society back. Still others would argue that due to divorce and cohabitation the institution of marriage is already in a weakened state. They view allowing legal gay marriage as the potential straw that is going to break marriages back. I would acknowledge marriage does not have the same prevalence and level of commitment it held in past generations but the decline of marriage has nothing to do with homosexuals.
Legal Implications in Human Resources: Introduction: The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed employment discrimination by employers based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or age. Specifically for employers, in the Civil Rights Act, Title VII guaranteed equal opportunity in employment. The Act also established the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to promote employment equality through education, technical assistance and enforceable federals laws (“Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” N.D.). Over the years, the act has been strengthened by legislative actions and expanded to cover other areas with potential discriminatory facets. The legal consideration of a Title VII disparate impact consists

For example, the debate about gay marriage and if it is legal. As of now many states do not allow the marriage of gay people. Some states allow them to become a couple but call it something else such as the union of two people. The difference between the state and federal government is that each state has a different law about gay marriage. Not every state agrees that gay marriage is wrong and illegal, but if the federal government were to pass a amendment outlawing gay marriage then every state who allows gay marriage would have to declare it unconstitutional and against the law.
Up until the late sixties, homosexuality was perceived as a pathological disease. Influenced by the sexual liberation movement, homosexuality was finally reexamined by notable scientists like Alfred Kinsey and Evelyn Hooker. They scientifically challenged and successfully appealed to the American Psychological Association and American Association of Psychiatrists to dismiss homosexuality as a pathological disease. The recognition of homosexuality merely as a sexual preference justified the legalization of homosexuality in the Criminal Law Amendment Act, thus granting homosexuals rights to publicly form gay communities. This helped lay the groundwork for the emergence of gay churches.
