11/7/07 English 1 Throughout history homosexuals have constantly been the victim of scorn and sometimes even violence, in today’s relatively liberal age one would think that we would have advance beyond such trivial bigotry, but unfortunately our prejudices seem to have remained primitive while our technology advanced. One of the many reasons that some people are against such things as allowing homosexuals to marry is that they believe that the purpose of marriage is only to produce children, if that were the case it wouldn’t be illegal to marry more than one person in our country. Gays and lesbians are obviously incapable of producing children with each other and many seek adoption as a way to fill that gap in their lives and help an orphaned youth grow up outside of a foster home. Unfortunately there are still several states that make it illegal for homosexuals to adopt and it is often extremely difficult for them to adopt in states where it is not illegal. The truth is that there has been no evidence to support that children raised by homosexuals are hindered by the fact. Homosexuals should be allowed to adopt children because they will be better off than in foster homes, arguments against adoption are unsupported by fact, and there are actual studies that have shown the lack of negative effects homosexual couples have on adopted children.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
