Running head: ADDRESSING SEXUAL GENDERS 1Addressing Sexual GendersYour NameAmerican Public University
ADDRESSING SEXUAL GENDERSSexual ToleranceIntolerance to sexual orientation and choice of gender of persons has been a controversial issue for a long time. Same sex marriages, for instance, have received a lot of resistance till recently when they were legalized in the majority states in the US. While those who oppose argue that marriage should be for man and woman. Proponents of these marriages argue that marriage should be for friends regardless of gender, and that each personshould be allowed to choose their sexual orientation.Opposition to gays, lesbians, and bisexuals mainly emanates from religions and self-acclaimed moral authorities. They posit that marriage should be left to man and a woman for fulfilling its purpose (Wilson, 2014). They see, therefore, that one has no choice, but to behave according to their biological genders defined by the larger society.
