One of the most influential poets in twentieth century, Dr. Seuss, said "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." As teenage homosexuals become adults and face the grown ups' world, they will meet someone who is extremely conservative opponents of same-sex marriage, without a doubt. These hardships often are not recognized by majority of the people and should be understood and recognized whether it is legally or religiously. These challenges cannot often be confronted without taking legal action and/or converting conservative people's ways of thinking. Therefore, homosexual people's only way of getting over with the issue is through organizations of same-sex marriage proponents such as, PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), and support from their family. Furthermore, in some cases, the hardships are emotional ones which can only be overcome by understanding and acceptance of people. These cases are the most common for homosexuals which include the most phases for them, such as, "coming out.".
Back in when Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt was prosperous, same-sex marriage was not considered a sin and many cultures even encouraged it. Explained in Random History, the early civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt's cultures saw attraction between a man and another man normal and "The main considerations in same-sex relationships in early history were often love, beauty, and excellence of character rather than gender." Same sex marriage back then, was equal right and was not gay privilege. Privilege would "[have been] something like gay people not paying taxes, like churches [didn't]." (Ricky Gervais) It was not until when Christianity began to rise and its negative attitude towards same-sex marriage was introduced. Research of Random History shows the varied view of Asian religions.
