Ah the gay marriage debate. I’ll say it right here: Simon and I stand on the very clear side that everyone should be able to get married and it doesn’t matter if you’re straight or gay. I don’t understand why it is anyone’s business of who you love, and that extends to people from different ethnic backgrounds getting married! Asian, Black, Straight, Gay, European, American, who cares what you are as long as you treat each other well. Isn’t that the point of marriage and religion? Treating each other as we would want to be treated? Treating each other in a kind and loving way?
I understand that people think that there are religious reasons for not accepting marriage, but it shouldn’t be their business to decide what people want to do with their own lives. Not to mention, no one seems to focus on the amount of straight couples that get married and get divorced. And considering the amount of babies abandoned in Korea, it would be fantastic if lovingly gay couples who might really want to adopt could do that. I see that as a win-win situation if a couple who are in love and happy together could raise a child in a positive environment. I see that as a much better situation than a child begin raised in a situation where two people are fighting all the time and angry but hey, at least they are straight. That doesn’t make sense to me! Who cares if you’re straight or gay, what about caring about positive love?
So that’s our take on gay marriage. I agree totally with the girls at the end, I wish it would get to the point where marriage is simply called marriage. There is no gay or straight, it’s just marriage.
So what is gay marriage like in your country? Is it accepted or not accepted? Let us know!
