I support gay rights by jlu650 I support gay rights by jlu650
"I knew he was different in his sexuality. I went to his parities as a straight minority. It never seemed a threat to my masculinity. He only introduced me to a wider reality." -Rush. Nobody's Hero

Wow!! same sex marriage is finally legal in all 50 states! What a good day! (well, a few days ago it happened, but I couldn't be on till now.) I know there are people who are not happy with the Surprime courts' decision and will not recolonize gay marriage as actual marriage.  That is your right...but it doesn't really matter, as long as the state gives them their rights. I honestly didn't think it would happen all at once though, I thought it would be a state by state thing up until the last state. It's good though.  The whole thing took WAY too much time as it is so this is long overdue! Congratulations to all, gay and straight, on your marriage...whether you already are married, or planning on it.  It's a beautiful thing to celebrate!

This is a topic that is very important to me, even thought I'm straight. It's about equality and freedom. I see nothing wrong with the homosexual lifestyle. They are not harming me, my family, or anyone else. Never have I met a gay person who hated straight people just for being straight. Never have I met a gay person who wanted someone else's freedom to marry taken way just because they don't live that lifestyle.

Here, I want to point out some of the common reasons why people are so against legalizing gay marriage and adoption. I'll start with gay marriage.

Reason #1- "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." This would imply that everyone believes in god, and the Adam and Eve story. Which not everyone does. Besides, we live in America. Our country is NOT a theocracy. Our lives and our laws are not supposed to be ruled by the bible.

Reason #2- "The bible says homosexuality is a sin"
Again, you're implying that everyone has the same believes as you. The bible is not a valid argument. I am willing to bet most people who say these things don't follow the bible 100% themselves. They pick and choose what to follow Yet, they point to the bible and tell other people to follow.

Reason #3-"Gay marriage is unnatural"
Because, animals in nature line up at the alter to marry, right? If you think about it, marriage itself is unnatural. How many of us live exactly as nature intended? Yeah, last time I checked, cell phones, computers and processed foods don't grow in nature. Unless you live as nature intended, you have no business telling others what they are doing is bad because it's unnatural. Practice what you preach.

Reason #4- "They can't produce children naturally."
No, they can't. Which means they won't have kids by accident either. AND, marriage isn't just about having kids anymore. A long time ago, when people died young and the child fatality right was extremely high, yes marriage was mostly about producing children. Nowadays, this isn't a problem. People who don't want, or can't have kids can get married. What's the diffidence. If a gay or lesbian couple want to have kids, they can adopt. There are plenty of children who need loving homes. Children, who by the way where abandoned by HETERO parents. while it's true that some are true orphans (meaning BOTH parents are confirmed DEAD. Not missing or just abandoned the child.) I'm willing to bet most children were abandoned because their parents couldn't provide for them. So, you're telling me it's better to let a child rot in the system then let them have good living homes, even if it is with a 'non traditional' family?

Reason #5- It runs traditional marriage" or marriage is between one man and one woman"
This is another biblical argument, or at least one that has it's roots in the bible. Actually, the bible never said that. If you actually look at the bible, and just in history in general. You will see that men frequently had more then one wife. "traditional marriage" also pretty much meant that a woman became property of her husband. It wasn't about love or commitment, it was about producing children and/or gaining wealth and status. Today, most people marry for love, and usually the woman does not become her husband's property. So traditional marriage is already out the door. And, that's not really a bad thing.

Reason #6- It will lead to allowing pedophiles, and people who want to marry their animals to be able to marry" or "it will lead to polygamy and insest"
Let's talk about pedophiles and people who commit bestiality being allowed to marry first: When I speak about marriage today, I am speaking about CONSENTING ADULTS. In other words, people who are willingly and legally allowed to sign an marriage contract. A child under the age of 18 is not legally allowed to enter into a contract. An animal may be able to be trained to sign an marriage contract, but the contract is not binding, as animals do not have the legal status of humans and therefore also cannot enter into a contract. Also, an animal cannot consent to the marriage, and a child most likely wouldn't want to marry a pedophile either. Thus, neither union is binding. As for polygamy and insest. Well, that may be the only legit argument. However, insest is already legal in more states then gay marriage is. Also, this is another debate altogether, but I'm not completely against polygamy. I guess if everyone in the union agrees and is of age, and the women can have more then one husband if they want, I really see nothing wrong with it. It's not something a support as much as gay marriage, but it's not something I detest either.

Reason #7- "If everyone is gay, the human race will die out'
This is true enough. However, not everyone will become gay if gay marriage is legalized. In American, it is already legal to practice homosexual acts. so how will marriage change the fact that being gay is a fairly rare thing?

Those are the most common reasons I hear why people are so against gay rights to marry. With just a bit or common sense and reasoning, each one can be exposed for just how ridiculous it is. I'm sure there are more reasons against gay marriage, and I'm sure some people can do a better job at debating this then I can, but these are just my thoughts. My ramblings, so to speak.

Now, i move to the right for gay people to adopt, and reasons why people are against it.

Reason#1- "a child needs a male and female role model in their lives"
I was raised by a single mom, as were my sisters. We grew up just fine. And so did many other children of single parents. Besides positive male and female role models can be found outside the home too. Teachers, charitable and honest sports starts and celebrities, friends, and other family members can all be examples of positive male and female role models for a child.

Reason #2- "god/nature made it so they can't have children, therefore, they must be unfit to be parents"
God/nature also made some [people sterile, but some of these people want to be parents too. Are they unfit because they can't have children naturally? of course not. sterile men and women can adopt/ use Ivf/a surrogate mother. Why is it different for gay and lesbian people who want to be parents?

Reason #3-"Gay parents will raise gay children" aka brainwash them, or they will "catch the gay"
Being gay is not contagious. you have about as much chance of becoming gay by hanging around gay people then you do by becoming tall by hanging around tall people (believe me, I've tried to get tall that way, it doesn't work) Most gay people do not want to brainwash children into their lifestyle. Most children who grow up with gay or lesbian parents grow up straight. The difference is they tend to be more open minded about different lifestyles.

Those are the main reasons that i can think of right now. Again, I'm sure there's much more and I'm sure others can explain it better. The "homosexual agenda" (whatever that is) has never badly affected me. If I ever have kids someday, I will have no problem explaining to them why some people have two mommies or two daddies. I will have no problem saying "love is love, and it's all beautiful."

I would also like to say (WARNING: RANT INCOMING) I'm sick of straight people acting like victims throughout this whole thing! Yeah, I'm straight, but I can tell you right now, I was never and will never be a victim.  If I hear one more person say "I can't even say I'm straight anymore because I'll be called a bigot"  or "I don't have freedom of speech if I disagree with it" I'm going to flip shit! I could say "Hey, I'm straight" to every single person I meet and 99.99% of them probably wouldn't think I'm a bigot. People think you're a bigot because you are acting like YOU are the ones that have been repressed this whole time.   I'm sure you've been bullied and beaten because of your sexual orientation? No? Ok...Well, you've probably been denied service when you go somewhere with your siginficant other? No? Oh...Well, did your family disown you when they found out you were straight? No? Were you told for years that you couldn't marry the one you love? No? THEN WHAT IS YOUR DEAL!?! How the hell are you being repressed? People are simply gaining the rights you've had all your life, that's all that's happening.  You are not losing anything.  Yeah, people are going to get pissed if you diss gay people, because the world is changing.  It's not that you CAN'T say it, your first amendment rights are still intact.  But, the first amendment does NOT protect you from criticism. It protects you from being punished by the government.  Trust me, it works both ways. Those of us who are for gay marriage are not protected from criticism either.  The reason we are getting less and less criticism is again, because the world is changing.  Even as little as ten years ago, we would be the ones receiving most of the criticism for our support. So, rest assured, you're not losing your first amendment rights, but people are disagreeing with you more and more.  You can keep your opinions, but that doesn't mean anyone is required to agree with you.

Meanwhile, while humanity argues about this topic no one would ever realize all of this 'argument shit' is insignificant. Our arrogance is indeed futile. We can't change that. We live in a corrupt and lonely planet, and that corruption is caused by the hands of Man. We've destroyed ourselves, yet we don't realize these actions are just gonna trigger greater issues. We can't change how worthless this planet is and the people living in it. The only thing we can do is to become better humans, live our lives to the fullest, and solve Mankind's problems like a BOSS, because it's not what we own, or what we have that is brought with us when we die and be remembered. It's our deeds. Our deeds can change the world. Our deeds affect others. Our deeds affect EVERYTHING, even as if it was in a measure of an atoms weight. Our deeds matter. Our deeds can cause corruption, and our deeds can make peace. Our deeds define who we are. Our deeds are our life,

Hello, I want to add my own opinion, so I would appreciate if you don't attack me with cursing and hate.

Lets get straight to the point. Most of people believe and say being gay is not 'wrong' It depends. When someone say something is wrong that means it is opposite of 'correct' or 'right' In that case homosexuality is wrong, cause it is not how it should be. Yes, accept that heterosexual is right. If two genders are created to reproduce then it is right.
Point: People should accept homosexuality is wrong.

I know that people are born homosexual. So they can not change that. I don't want to sound rude but why people are so proud to be gay? I mean, what is so awesome in it? You like same gender and sadly, and most likely, you will get discriminated by community. Just cause of people who like to discriminate, it will be hard for gays to go trought life. I know these fights ARE for their rights but, lets be real, there will always be someone who will be there to ruin it. It is like with deformed people, black people, it will be hard.
Point: Being gay is not awesome.

Why so harash on christians? Are people so retarded? God himself didn't wrote the bible. Why are people so againts religion? Religion is in our culture. ALL religion. It isn't Gods fault cause people are ruining the beauty of religion. Think about it. Religion kept our culture and made us to believe in something. It triggered physolofy. So don't attack religion but fight idiots who made religion look bad.
Point: Stop attacking religion and christanity.

So there we are. Hardest thing to complain about. Should gays marry? In our tradition is marriage between female and male. And that marriage is 'correct' one. The marriaged gay couple would want to have a child. They will need to adopt one. For child, it is much better to grow in ordinary life. Like gays, others kids could attack child for having two moms or dads. It is not healthy. In my personal opinion I think giving them right to marry is little too much.
Point: Gays should not have right to marry.

For male gays, sex in very unhealthy.

So that is what I think. Again, I have nothing againts gay people, I'm talking about homosexuality. Thanks for listening:)

Point: Gays should not have right to marry.

Your religion doesn't dictate over the entire country. You're allowed to have your personal opinions, but democracy caters to the majority, and if they majority of the Western world wants gay marriage it will become law.

Also, children are not the only reason to marry. I want to marry but yet I'm not entirely sure if I want children and I would rather adopt a child than bring others into the world...does that mean I shouldn't be able to marry? For all intents and purposes I'm in an opposite sex relationship, but I'm not reproducing as you say.

If it's all about family then you also have to keep in mind that technically you'd have to ban marriage from childfree by choice straight couples, infertile couples, and elderly couples too. two people joining together to create a new family. The family is already there; they are husband and wife, husband and husband or wife and wife, that's a family already, marriage is family relationship at least it is determined a family relationship by the law.

The choice to have children or not doesn't illegitimatise or legitimise the family that the two life partners have created. Having children is entirely personal choice, nothing really to do with who you want to marry though.

For male gays, sex in very unhealthy.

It's only unhealthy potentially if you don't use lube...or if you don't know the other person and don't use protection with them, and that's a stupid move no matter if you are straight or gay...both sexualities do it FYI. The second one also applies to straight people having sex bare in mind, and you know with some women even the first one applies too (some women do not produce enough natural lubricant).

Anal sex in gay men wouldn't be a thing if it was unenjoyable and completely dangerous. They wouldn't do it. No one wants sex to be an uncomfortable and forced act. It wouldn't make sense for straight couples to love the old fashioned penetrative sex if there was no pleasure connections down there would it? Fact is that even if it is a little rough without lube, the anus stretches for a penis. This is well documented in anal sex...also there are often a bunch of pleasure nerve endings that bundle up in different areas of the anus, as well as the "p spot" or male g spot ie. the bit of skin the rubs the underside of the prostate. Penises even when erect are rather soft and most men just have an averaged size one which really can't do much damage to another male so there's that also. With a committed partner who you know is clean, it's not even condom, lube and go, it's just lube, and go.

"Why are people so proud to be gay?" Well, tell me why are you proud of being who you are? Don´t you love yourself? This is the same thing. It´s about being proud of who you are, despite what our twisted society has told us to believe, "that we are wrong". Being of whatever sexuality is awesome! It´s amazing when you get to a point in your life where you don´t feel like a broken piece anymore, and you discover that there are people out there who feel the same way that you do. 

"You like same gender and sadly, and most likely, you will get discriminated by community". Well yes, homophobic and transphobic people are a pain in the ass but that doesn´t stop us from loving ourselves and carry on with our lives. 

"It will be hard": Yes, it IS hard, but things are changing and we are moving towards a more open-minded society.

"They will need to adopt a child. For child, it is much better to grow in ordinary life" So... you prefer orphan kids to live their lives without the love of a family? You prefer that instead of them being adopted by a queer couple?

"For male gays, sex is very unhealthy" Sex is not unhealthy darling, if people take care of themselves there shouldn´t be any problem.

I understand your point and I respect it, still... I don´t agree with it, but I do appreciate very much that you voiced your opinions with respect. Thanks for sharing your point of view! I hope you don´t mind me sharing mine. Cheers :)

Even though Same sex marriage is legal in the entire U.S., there's something wrong with Discrimination on LBGTQ in the Work force. That's why I'm really against discrimination towards LBGTQ since its really, its unfair for a person to be unfairly treated because they're not straight, and they're either gay/lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and/or anything like that. Even though I'm a christian myself, I go agree that such discrimination must come to an end.

"I'm straight and I support gay rights!"
Being straight has nothing to do with it, lol. Either it's right or it's wrong. 

And I love Rush, but I feel the first anecdote in that song was just shoehorned in. Pretty much the rest of the people talked about in the song describe actual heroes. Not "oh looks like being gay is totally cool".
jlu650 Featured By Owner May 7, 2015
The only reason I said I was straight is because I hear a lot of people going on about how it's just a "gay" issue and the only people that care about it is gay people. Well, it's's a human rights issue and there are plenty of straight allies.  That's what I was saying, but the stamp is small.  Kinda hard to explain that in the tiny space and I didn't want it to be an animated stamp, although I could explain better in the description.

As for the quote, I put it in because I liked the quote, and the song.  That line is about one of Neil Pearts friends, who was gay and passed away from AIDS.  And it's kind of sadly inspirational to me for reasons I won't go into.  Actually, it's a few lines later that really get to me "When I heard that he was gone I felt a shadow cross my heart." To be honest though, I always thought it was kind of random in the song too, but that doesn't make it less powerful for me. The quote is more or less a personal thing.  I clearly quote Rush a lot...uhh...maybe too much. lol.

"The only reason I said I was straight is because I hear a lot of people going on about how it's just a "gay" issue and the only people that care about it is gay people."
I've never heard anyone say it was just a "gay issue". The Left says it hurts gays so everyone should care. The Right says it hurts everyone so everyone should care. I have heard people say "only gay people should be allowed to vote on gay marriage", which is obviously ridiculous. 

" I clearly quote Rush a lot...uhh...maybe too much. lol."
You can never quote Rush too much. XD

i dunno if anyone pointed this out yet but i have to say that

#4 and #7 [your statements about them]

actually are not true. there are lots of genders out there; such as trans people and plenty of other genders. so it is indeed possible for two men [for example] to have a child.

sorry, i'm not disagreeing with the stamp or anything though (i'm lesbian tbh). just thought i'd point that out.

on the other hand, i wish there were more people for gay marriage ! and thanks for making the stamp. it's nice to see people for it.
