What About Same-Sex Marriage?
WARNING: Controversial and Personal Post! Please do not read if you are easily offended whether you are for or against gay marriage.
I think Obama shocked alot of people in the past few weeks by announcing that he was for gay marriage-or at least that was the message I last read online. I have mixed feelings about this issue. I never pictured myself married to a woman-always wanted to be married to a man.
On the other hand, I do see how it can be tough to believe it's wrong to like someone of the same sex. I also struggle with this-and am being so open about it so others don't feel so bad. On the other hand, I cannot understand how it cannot be a choice for some people-sexuality that is.
I always believed I had a choice. However, I wonder how it is for people who swore up and down they have never even once been attracted to someone of the opposite sex. Then, there are all these variables in between as what I was taught in a class is called the 'straight line continuum' with the 'least gay' people on one end and the 'most gay' people on the opposite end and the 'moderately gays/bisexuals' in the middle.
At least that's how I took it when I was taught this in high school. I don't know what to think. I really don't. I always grew up believing it's wrong and I believe I have a choice. However, what about the ones that don't believe they have a choice but to like or love the same sex?
