30 Days of Truth: Day 18

Day 18 - Your views on Gay Marriage?
You want to know my views on gay marriage? My views are that while I don't completely understand having a love for the same sex, I do understand love. Especially loving someone that people may not be too fond of. I know how hard it is for your family to accept the relationship and accept that you truly love them.

I do believe that you can't help who you fall in love with and who am I to tell someone that they can't love someone. If I, as a female, am allowed to marry the person I love, why can't someone else marry the person they love? Who am I to judge? It's so ridiculous that our society teaches others not to judge and 'read a book by it's cover' but isn't that exactly what we're teaching our children? That a marriage between a man and a woman is above that of two men or two women? It's not fair.

I am a HUGE believer that everyone is equal. It's what my religion teaches. It's who I am. Now I'm not perfect but I certainly try not to put myself above others. Regardless of who you love, your marriage means a much to me as any other, regardless of gender. 

What's your view on gay marriage?


  1. I completely agree with your views on the subject. Marriage shouldn't be based on sexual orientation, it needs to be based on love & commitment.

  2. Exactly! I've had a number of 'discussions' about this topic and often find that it's the religous aspect of the situation that gets people really riled up. Their argument is that it's not religously sanctioned and therefore not ok. TO wich I always respond I got married by a friend who was ordained online in a completely non-religous does my marriage not count either?
