Gay Rights. Fuck Massachusetts.Category: (general)

My name is Shaleigh ******. I am a few days away from being fifteen years old. I’m
a freshman at ****** Senior High School, I’m in three honors classes, and I aim to
be a psychologist and a mother when I grow up. I will turn out to be a pretty normal
adult, much like every other person in my generation. But one thing sets me aside
from a lot of other people. That one thing sets a lot of us aside. My sexuality. I am
bisexual. That means I’m attracted to girls and boys. I do not have a preference.
So when I get older, I can marry whoever I want, right? That’s only if the Gay
Marriage law is kept legal. 
	I stand with a very awkward group of people. The bisexual and homosexual people of
Massachusetts lead very similar lives to those who are heterosexual, but in a way,
very different lives. If Gay Marriage is made illegal again, things will turn out
badly. Many teenagers in the last few years committed suicide do to prejudice against
their sexuality. Unfortunately we live in a heterosexual society, where it is
considered the norm to only be attracted to the opposite sex. And anyone who is
attracted to both or the same is seen as different. The thing is, we’re basically
the same. Yes, it says in the constitution that marriage is the union of a man and
woman, but it couldn’t be more wrong. Marriage is the union of two people who love
each other. Without love, a person is empty. And so many citizens of Massachusetts
will lose their chance of finding the one they want to spend the rest of their lives
with. When worse comes to worse, my generation will be in charge of Massachusetts,
but instead of having a stable government and civilized people, we’ll have a pack
of drug addicts, alcoholics, and suicidals leading our state. The constitution
doesn’t define love, it defines what is stereotypical. We live in a stereotypical
country. That is the problem.
	A lot of people that I know are heterosexual. My twin brother for instance, always
tells me how hot he thinks lesbians are. I ask him why, and he always tells me,
“more boobs”. But I always have to explain to him that it isn’t like gay people
get together and have sex and that’s it. They are normal people who have normal
jobs. They raise families, go out to dinner, see movies, play video games, and all
kinds of things heterosexuals do. It is not “unconstitutional” for two people to
love each other. And just because the first men who ran the country said it was,
doesn’t mean we can’t change that. Our country, our world, is ever changing. And
we need to change with it. The past is the past. Everyone was Catholic back then, so
it was customary to be heterosexual and anything else was a sin. But since America,
and Massachusetts, have no set or specific race or language or mandatory sexuality,
then why illegalize something as simple as same sex marriage?

"Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) is a social union or legal contract
between people that creates
kinship. The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but is
usually an institution in which
interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. Such a
union is often formalized via a
wedding ceremony. Many cultures limit marriage to two persons of the opposite sex,
but some allow forms of polygamous
marriage, and some recognize same-sex marriage. In some conservative cultures,
marriage is recommended or compulsory
before pursuing any sexual activity.

People marry for many reasons, including one or more of the following: legal, social,
libidinal, emotional, economic,
spiritual, and religious. These might include arranged marriages, family obligations,
the legal establishment of a
nuclear family unit, the legal protection of children and public declaration of
commitment.[1][2] The act of marriage
usually creates normative or legal obligations between the individuals involved. Some
cultures allow the dissolution of
marriage through divorce or annulment.

Marriage can be recognized by a state, an organization, a religious authority, a
tribal group, a local community or
peers. It is often viewed as a contract. Civil marriage is the legal concept of
marriage as a governmental institution
irrespective of religious affiliation, in accordance with marriage laws of the

1 a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or
wife in a consensual and
contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a
person of the same sex in a
relationship like that of a traditional marriage [same-sex marriage]   

Now where in that statement, pulled from Webster's New Dictionary, does it say that
same sex marriage is wrong and should be illegalized?
	Another point I’d like to address is how eliminating same sex marriage will affect
the government in Massachusetts. A lot of people will go to New York where it’s
legal. And they’ll stay there. So the government here in Massachusetts won’t be
raking in as much taxes from the amount of people who will move out of state to be
with the one they love. The less taxes paid, the heavier they are on the people who
stay. And the last thing the government needs is people rioting for lower taxes. 
	In conclusion, I think I speak for a LOT of people when I say that this kind of
treason against the governments own people. And with treason… comes mutiny.

You know.. this is why our country is like it is today. People who
thing things that are different are bad are running the show! I know
several people who are bisexual or gay, and their pretty awesome
people!! Yeah, sure I'm part of the Catholic religion, but I see no
problem with same sex marriage. I not physically hurt when I see a
couple of the same gender, nor am I mentally scared when I see that.
The people that are trying to get rid or this and make it against the
law are idiots, and morons. Suppressing a group of people like that
will never work out in the long run, and they will just find a way to
be happy, or rebel against what ever is holding them back. Its
happened to different groups through out history, and this is no
If I could vote against this change, I would, but sadly I live in the
wrong state to do so...
