Sometimes I wonder what all the hate against gay marriage is all about. Why is it such a big deal? I agree with Bishop Malone and his opinion about marriage being the foundation for a family, but I disagree with his stance that marriage should be between a man and a woman only. This comes from a very idealistic view on how life should be. Therefore, I believe that homosexual unions should be legal because they can provide the same amount of love, care, education, as well as create equally productive, creative, upright, and responsible citizens as any heterosexual
We are facing a big problem in society about marriages and their stances on civil unions. The movement of same sex marriage has been in the forefront of our society for a couple of years now. On the more Conservative side, politicians are grounded with the idea that marriage should be between a man and a woman. “I view marriage as a gender-based institution that attaches mothers and fathers to each other and to their children” (Morse, 82). According to Proposition 8: The California Marriage Protection Act was a ballot proposition to help conserve the value of marriage and changing same sex marriage to be illegal.
Homosexuality "Marriage" is a bond recognized by various institutions, between a man and a woman. Not only a man and a woman define “marriage”, but pairs of the same sex fulfill the criteria of a successful marriage as well. William Bennett, the author of “Against Marriage”, dictates that allowing homosexuals to get married will change the meaning of marriage while Andrew Sullivan claims that "they make a deep commitment to one another and to society; in exchange, society extends the benefits to them”. Although, over the years, people have changed the essence of marriage to suit their personal needs, but many constitutions are biased towards equality of rights resulting in the condemnation of personal integrity.
I think that everyone should have the right to get married no matter if he is homosexual or not. There are many orphans around the world, which couples should consider to adopt. The same sex families can help to increase the number of adopting. Two mothers or fathers can bring up a child just fine if they are responsible and love their child. Same sex couples who want to marry looking for the same kinds of benefits that the other couples are.
Stereotypes that are associated with Native are worrier-hunter images that are portrayed in the American culture (Arviso, 2012). In many cultures stereotyping are common when it comes to lesbians, gay, bisexuals and transgender identifying people. “In sociological terms 'gender role' refers to the characteristics and behaviors that different cultures attribute to the sexes. What it means to be a 'real man' in any culture requires male sex plus what our various cultures define as masculine characteristics and behaviors, likewise a 'real woman' needs female sex and feminine characteristics” (Noblius, 2003). In Native cultures two spirit people are free to be who they
This is because people all over the world are classified by these things, not just Americans. Sometimes these classifications are implicitly or explicitly expressed in hopes of avoiding discrimination. For instance, my mom only goes to gay men to get her makeup done. This is because like many Americans she believes that gay men are great cosmetologists. Next social class is implicitly identified.
The marriage between the characters Nora and Trovald can be read as a representation of the need for power and authority in a patriarchal society. Trolvald’s character is constructed as the epitome of a good husband just as Nora seems to be of a wife. The character is doting, listens to Nora’s wishes through some pleasing on Nora’s part. And Nora’s character a brilliant wife who does as her husband wishes and keeps him pleased, even if it sacrifices herself. However we soon realise that he holds all of the power in the relationship.
Despite this, the native women gender has been suggested as having been the most respected aspect in shaping the current women understandings and identities. Gender conflicts occasionally occurred between men and women improving the relationship of both genders. Similarly gender conflicts reshaped the country’s ethnic, class and cultural values. From the early 80s, same sex marriages resulted in numerous controversies across both genders. Same sex married couples faced discrimination and rejection from conservative members of the society.
how often do we see cases of stereotyping? what is masculinity and femininity? what type of qualities do we have to possess to show masculinity? Is femininity socially defined and or biologically created factors? According to the Wikipedia free encyclopaedia masculinity is possessing qualities or characteristic considered typical of or appropriate to man.
“Marriage is both ubiquitous and central. All across our country, in every region, every social class, every race and ethnicity, every religion or non-religion, people get married (Nussbaum). The most common argument against allowing gays to marry seems to be that we need to protect the institution of marriage. This argument is ridiculous for many reasons. While the main reason people in the US seem to get married is out of love, it is by no means the only reason (Kellard).
