I believe that regardless of gender people should be allowed the right of marriage. Now that’s just my personal opinion but others in the state of Texas are mostly conservative I was surprised to see that the polls for same-sex marriage and against sex-marriage were practically split fifty-fifty. “Texas voters are split on whether gays and lesbians should be allowed to marry” and so as I looked at the polls I realized that the way things were before as in the way people think is starting to change (Ramsey, 2015).

Unlike Kim Davis who denied a same-sex couple service because “it would violate her conscience and go against her religion” (Hannah, Payne and Shoichet, 2015). As for the right to raise a child I previously said that there were different factors that were believed to affect the child in some way but I don’t think its necessarily since a child can be raised differently and it isn’t really possible to keep an eye on the difference because the way each child is raised varies. “The effects on children of being raised by lesbian and gay adoptive parents cannot be predicted” (Adoption and Same-Sex Couples: Basics, 2016). When I said that homosexuality is not a choice I meant that people do not just decided they are gay, it’s the gender you automatically identify with. We can’t just ask “if a child’s
