Do Gays & Lesbians Have Equal Rights
If the constitution promises equality before the law, what justification can there be for clearing rights to any member of society? More specifically what justification can there be for clearing rights to gays and lesbians? Lots of questions come to mind when the topic of gays and lesbians having equal rights as any other citizen in society would have. Should gays and lesbians have equal employment opportunities? Should they have the right to adopt a child, and should they have the right to marry their own sex partner. Well of course they should have the right to do all of these things just because they are human beings also.
Every day in our society we judge people because of how they act or how they choose to live their lives. Lots of gays and lesbians have to go threw people judging them and they still have to go threw it when they want to get a job. Sometimes it is harder for a homo
sexual to get a job, as it would be for a heterosexual. Companies and other major firms would rather choose someone that is straight then someone having the same sex partner. Sometimes homosexuals get the job but they do not have the same rights as any other employee would. Though out the United States there has been more then a dozen of cases dealing with equal employment opportunities. Robin Sharhar was fired before she started work as a deputy attorney general in Georgia. Her boss said she couldn’t be an effective lawyer for the state because she and her partner we233306305698701re about to have a commitment ceremony. The university of Pittsburgh denies their lesbian and gay employees equal compensation by refusing to provide their1 partners the same health insurance benefits that they provide to spouses of heterosexual employees. Gays and lesbians should have the same rights to have relationships as everyone else, and should have the same employment opportunities.
Someone is adopting everyday children all over the world. The children wait joyfully for couples to come and adopted them. So If a gay or a lesbian couple goes to adopted a child from a foster home they would have to go though more hassle then a straight couple would. Why is it that they have to deal with more aggravation then any other couple would? The only reason they have to deal with more aggravation is because they are gay or lesbian. The government and foster homes believe that children being adopted by the same sex partners would not be raised as well as being adopted by couples with different sex partners.
