The constitution states that all men are created equal and it's no wonder that homosexual couples have been motivated to fight for the same marriage rights that heterosexual couples have enjoyed since the union of Adam and Eve. However, people's stereotypes and society's hypocritical views of people all affect the gay community in reaching their goals to legalize gay marriages. People are ignorant when the topic of homosexuality is concerned. Mainstream society will say they are in favor of equal rights for homosexuals, but when talking about same sex marriage, the society does not agree with that. The stereotype has it that homosexuality is only about "dirty" sex. On the other hand, homosexuality is merely a preference and much more about affection and commitment. All relationships, including gay ones, are based on mutual attraction, love and affection. People in love get married everyday so what harm is done to society if a law is passed legalizing same sex marriages? Homosexuals like heterosexuals are harmless people, highly educated and progressive in the arts and business. Since they can earn a living for themselves, and show commitment to one another, government should respect their choices and human rights. The gay community is fearless. They are fearless because they have fought so many battles in clash between homophobic people and themselves. People are not very open minded when it comes to the gay community. They fear that homosexuals will corrupt them in some way or are dangerous to their children. These ideas are all part of society's misleading views. Not only are homosexuals looked down upon because of their sexual preference, but also the discrimination is worse when minorities are involved. Generally, people should be treated equally no matter what. The way you live your personal life is your choice, not the choice of the government or society. In the constitution, it states that every human being has the right to privacy.
