They also believed that a gay person is committing a sin and would burn in hell for having a sexual experience with a person of the same sex. (Rathus, Nevid & Fichner-Rathus, 2005) Until recently, some religions would perceive the male on male and female on female sexual interaction as inappropriate. Then, consider the cross cultural viewpoints and according to the text, it appears that there are some cultures that are more accepting to this. The New Guinea is one of the cultures that are more excepting to the view of homosexuality. In this culture the young

Mortality and Relativism Being raised in a religious home I have always believed things should be morally wrong across the board. But I have always looked at these issues from a personal point of view. I do believe that there should be certain universal moral requirements. When I started this assignment I was thinking about murder, polygamy, sex with under aged children, and rape. After reading "Some Moral Minama," by Lenn Goodman I realized there was more to these issues than I originally thought and it was more than just a religious viewpoint.
It violated religious and social constitutions of order. In his work, as a historian, Nemiga challenged the basis of the gendered hierarchical order, undermining the reproductive function of sex and the formation of the core social unit, the family. Homosexuality placed men in the position of women, sexually and metaphorically. The purpose for semen was to conceive and any act, including the anal penetration, could never produce conception, violating nature. For this reason, the pecado contra natura was feared and horrified the general public.
These examples just shows how confusing it is in identifying sexual harassment today. How would you answer Limbaugh’s points if you were arguing for the opposition to each of the two points you have selected? For the first point, I would argue that women should not have so much power over men because men were created as the head and as such women should respect their authority. For the second point, I would say that sexual harassment should be limited to only sexual behaviors that are forced unto women and not be based on a man trying to win a woman over by his advances. Sexual harrassment refers to sexual actions.
“What Marriage is For,” by Maggie Gallagher is in essence the conservative view and Natural Law Theory of Gay Marriage. She states dozens of times that the fundamental purpose of marriage is for a man and woman to procreate, and that a child can only be happy if brought up by his/her biological parents. Otherwise, the child would grow up in an unstable household and develop mental instability. Divorce is on the rise and motherless children are being brought up in an unhealthy environments, so, why make matters worse by permitting gay marriage? “Marriage is the fundamental, cross-cultural institution for bridging the male-female divide so that children have loving, committed mothers and fathers.” She explains that this is absolutely necessary for a child to be happy, and grow up in a normal environment.
The research also extends the concept of the “double closet” in which the participants actually felt more conformable with their identity as homosexual males versus wealthy males (Hokemeyer, 2009). It would be interesting to find out if Low-SES homosexual males also identify more with being homosexual or being poor. Does being homosexual keep them from achieving all of their goals emotionally, personally and professionally? As is well known, problem of violence against homosexuals is so pervasive that they were a specifically identified group when the United States Congress ordered
I talk about ‘gay’ marriage, and use multiple different homosexual related terms, so by defining a few terms I would like to give you, the reader, a better understanding of the LGBTQ, lesbian gay bisexual trans* queer, community. By doing this I also hope not to confuse the reader. First, marriage: Webster’s dictionary defines marriage as a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that established rights and obligations between spouses. Love, as a verb, is a deep attachment, romantic or otherwise, to someone, or between two people. The word ‘gay’ has multiple definitions.
III (2009), Philosophy Hons., Patna Women's College, Patna University, Patna **Head, Department of Philosophy, Patna Women's College, Patna University, Patna The highly debatable issue of homosexual relationship comes under the purview of applied ethics and demands moral deliberations in order to discuss the legitimacy of their action. Homosexual acts are against our societal norms, traditional beliefs and religious principles but then they are voluntary acts based on freedom of choice and determinism and thus homosexuality cannot be debarred from being practised. Homosexuality was once considered a legal offence, but is now, decriminalized by majority of the developed countries. Homosexuals are even struggling for its legalization in co operation with various government and non- government organizations. Hence, in such a situation there is a call for a detailed discussion on the issue of homosexual relationship, especially its ethicality and its influence on the society.
