    fall in love with a boy. The fact that many Americans consider it a disease says more about them than it does about homosexuality.” (Social Critic James A. Baldwin). Many people are scared to be themselves.

    Recently my two classmates have shared their opinions on two speeches titled Gay marriage in America and Georgia tech freshman convocation speech. My first classmate has given preference to the second speech. It seems that he is more inclined to Shelby as a person with charisma who is capable to attract attention but not to the content of his speech. Thus, Shelby, as a college student (ethos), tells very emotionally about the major things which every student of his college must know. He actively…

    Being gay used to be a very big taboo across many, if not all, cultures. My paper specifically will discuss the connection between religion and people’s thoughts and feelings on homosexuals/being homosexual. Religion has a huge impact on people’s thoughts about being homosexual which also affects the willingness of a culture to accept homosexuality, and many times it also has a deep effect on people who identify as gay. While being gay has stopped being a taboo in recent times in many places,…

    Gay Marriage and Gay Marriage Services The Supreme Court ruling is being followed but on the edges of that ruling are loopholes being jumped through. Gay marriages are now legal, but the service providers for their weddings are now denying them their specific service. That comes from baking the cakes to photography for the weddings. These are all essential for a wedding in this day and age. Should this behavior continue to be allowed? “Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined…

    against gay marriage, I would say I am biased. Im more against it than for it but in the world we live in it isn't surprising that this law has been granted. On June 26, 2015 the supreme court passed a law for gay marriage. This allows the same sex to get married. When this law was passed many people rejoiced in happiness while others were infuriated and upset. I personally was nonchalant to the whole situation. Im not quite a judgemental person so I wasn't affected by it. I believe that gay…

    memory of learning what it means to be gay was when I was in grade school. I would hear the word being said from my friends and other peers in my classroom. I went to a catholic school my whole life, so the word gay was never taught in the classroom by the teachers. My friends and I would talk about the word during lunch and recess. My family never talked about the LGBTQ because it was against what my family believes in. When I was younger, I would hear the word gay a lot on the television. I…
