Counterpoint: Same-Sex Marriage is Both a Constitutional and Human Right: Points of View Reference Center Home

Counterpoint: Same-Sex Marriage is Both a Constitutional and Human Right: Points of View Reference Center Home | Kaitlyn Hannay | Scoop.it
Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

This article can help my thesis paper because it states reasons on why you should support same- sex marriage. This article also states that it is a human right that all people should have. In 1967, 16 states still had anti miscegenation laws that prevent interracial marriage. According to a Pew Center research Study conducted in 2006, 51 percent of college-educated Americans now believe that homosexuality is innate. Homosexuals should not be discriminated just because they have a different love life then others. It's not like they're different people they just have different interests than most.

Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-sex marriage in all fifty states," Obama told The New Yorker's Jeffrey Toobin in an interview published in October

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

I think this newspaper article will help me out in writing my thesis paper because it's stating another persons' opinion. Sometimes you need somebody's personal opinion to help you understand why you picked your stance in being for or against your topic.The Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-sex marriage in all fifty states. Obama told the New Yorker's Jeffrey Toobin himself in an interview published in October. When Obama in May 2012 announced that he was reversing himself on his professed opposition to same-sex marriage, he emphasized that he believed it was a question that should be left to the states.

Gay Couple in Wedding Announcements

Click here to edit the title

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

In this video there's two gay men and their the first gay couple to be featured in the New York Times Wedding Announcements and they talk about their relationship. They first met in Daniel's personal ad in a Washington newspaper. They both feel like it shouldn't be a big deal if you're gay or not and that's exactly how I feel it shouldn't matter to other people, it's your choice to be gay nobody else's. They loved having their wedding look like everybody else's. Also, having their family there and now looking back they think nothing of it. Steven's mother didn't like the thought of him being gay and just broke down in tears of embarrassment. This video is good for me to use in my thesis paper because it states the same opinions I believe in and I think it will help me with my stand in same-sex marriage.

Same-Sex shindigs: farmers fined

Click here to edit the title

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

Although I don't totally agree on the specific things they are stating in this article I feel it will help me in my thesis paper. The Gifford's should have allowed the two woman to get married but they didn't. This will help me in fighting for what I think is right and standing up for what I believe in. This article explains how these woman found the perfect venue spot to have their wedding at when everything got turned around. The Gifford's would not allow them to have their wedding there because of their religious beliefs and they believed that marriage should only be for heterosexuals. The woman then got frustrated and upset so they called and complained to the New York State Division of Human Rights.

The Supreme Court Just Cleared the Path for Same-Sex Marriage in 5 More Sta...: Points of View Reference Center Home

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

This newspaper article can help my thesis paper because it says how many states have legalized same-sex marriage. This just shows that it is getting more and more popular. The Supreme Court on Monday declined to review seven same-sex marriage appeals allowing same-sex marriages to go ahead in five states and putting off a potential landmark case on marriage at the court. After lower court  struck down same-sex marriage bans in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin, the decisions were appealed to the Supreme Court. By refusing to hear the appeals, the Supreme Court allowed the lower courts' decisions to stand, immediately ending obstacles to same-sex marriage in those five states.

Gay Rights Groups Call Federal Marriage Suit Premature

Click here to edit the title

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

In this video Theodore Olson states what he is going to say about equal rights to every American under the Constitution. These two men are friends fighting for the recognition of gay marriage. Gay men and lesbians have been denied the right of getting married that everyone else freely enjoys. On the other hand, David Boies was arguing for every vote to be counted. Basically what he said was that the purpose of the Constitution is to be extended to every American. That's what this lawsuit is all about. They also have gay and lesbian couples on the stage with them. This video will help me with my paper because it explains the process you have to go through in order to get married when you're gay. It also helps because the guy says it perfect that all rights from the Constitution belong and should be extended to every American. Nobody should have different rights to obey. Were all humans so therefore everyone should have to respect the same rights we have to.

From 'I do' to 'I want out'

Click here to edit the title

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

This newspaper article will help with my paper because it says that in North Carolina since they lifted the ban at least five same-sex couples have applied for marriage licenses in Caldwell County. But because state law requires a couple to be separated at least 12 months before they can file for divorce, the only same-sex couples who could be granted a divorce before next October are those who were legally married in another state when North Carolina still did not recognize their marriage. Some people are happy with same-sex couples and others are not but in the end their just people like everyone else and should be treated the same as anyone else and shouldn't be looked at differently.

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

This newspaper article will work well with my thesis paper because it's good to have another persons' opinion on a topic. This is a broad topic so I want ideas to backup my information. This article is how the lawless judicial feels about same- sex marriage they have different viewpoints and that's being discussed in this article.The Constitution leaves states free to reject the traditional definition, if their voters or legislatures so choose, but also free to maintain it. Which is another way of saying it leaves the courts out of that decision. This article will work well and help with writing my paper.

Gay Marriage Should Be Legal

Click here to edit the title

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

This website will be helpful in my thesis paper because it is clearly for gay rights which is what my thesis paper is about. I would be able to get a lot of information from here that will be useful for me. The 14th Amendment likely protects gay marriage. children cannot be shielded from information that is widely available on television and elsewhere, and there is no reason religious groups should be allowed to define marriage for homosexuals. The issue of gay marriage hit the national during the 2004 elections as a divisive issue meant to drive religious conservatives to the polls.

Counterpoint: Banning Same-Sex Marriage is Discrimination: Points of View Reference Center Home

Kaitlyn Hannay's insight:

Marriage is a civil contract under state law and does not impose on religious beliefs. Couples do not have to belong to any church to enter into civil marriage. The rights and responsibilities of civil marriage should be equally available to all citizens of the United States not only regardless of race or religion but regardless of sexual orientation as well. This article will work well in my thesis paper because it's stating facts and evidence that I will need to back myself up.
