This was very persuasive as it shows that some places have worse rights for gay people then our country.

I chose to scoop this article because I found that it was an important text informing us how gay couples can teach straight couples about values that we can all hold. You would be surprised how much we can teach one another... around the world!

Same Love - feat. Mary Lambert

Same Love - feat. Mary Lambert, a song by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis on Spotify.

Jesse Krasic's insight:

i chose to scoop this as it is a good awareness about same sex marriage, it is in song form, but everybody around the world will hear this song and be aware of it.

Megan Ellwood's comment, May 28, 2013 12:37 AM
I scooped this song through spodify as it is a great example of same sex marriages. The song is called 'Same love' and it is about two of the same sex loving each other and that it is not accepted in our society. The song explains how loving someone the same sex is unacceptable and the trauma people go through for not being respected in society. The words “it’s all the same love," is said because we should support every kind of love. I believe this song is a great eye opener for people who are against same sex marriages.
Jay Taylor's comment, May 28, 2013 12:39 AM
I chose this source as I have heard this song on the radio before and think it has a really good message and moral. This article is 'for' legalising gay marriage and Macklemore was extremely smart making a song that could spread the word around the world.

This is an extreme but inspirational article as the US President Barack Obama has come to the conclusion that he wants to in force the law of legalising same sex attracted marriage in the USA. In the article it is expressed that Obama feels strongly about legalising the law.

Throughout this article it provides us with information on allowing gay marriage. It shows us that more people want same sex marriage to be legalised. It is an excellent example of same sex marriage winning a possible election as 205 people voted for same sex marriage out of 366.

I scooped this article via Kristy Tyquin because i believe everything that is said in the article is true. It explains that everyone is the same, all our gay friends and family members still do the same daily activities as they would if they weren't gay. They pay the same amount of bills, taxes etc and they aren't effecting anyone around us so it's time to allow gay marriage in Australia. Marriage brings joy and we should not deny a person love. It could be that gay married couples can look after a child at the same standard as married couples, but gay couples are not given the chance to prove so.
Jay Taylor's comment, May 28, 2013 12:56 AM
I found that 'It's time to allow gay marriage in Australia' was an important article as it stated that our country needs to allow gay marriage because recently other countries have been. For example New Zealand has recently legalised gay marriage and it should be legalised in Australia being a neighbouring country.
