What a long way we've come since 2003. It's already been over a year since it's been legalized! I'm happy that FictionPress still has so much of its older content, so I can always come back and read these old essays. This one in particular is an AMAZING essay and I come back to it pretty often. Cheers! :)

I could not agree with this essay more, couldn't have written it better either. This is possibly the best essay that I have ever read.
It's why I am pleased to hear that gay marriage is now legal. Did you hear about that? :)

First of all, I want to compliment you for well-written essay and rather reasonable arguments. You made a good point and maybe for a second there, I could see the world from another perspective. Thank you for enabling me to do so because it's important to understand both sides before reaching the conclusion.
I've never been a big supporter of gay rights, but I didn't oppose to them either. It's just been so distant and kind of unimportant for me (I personaly don't know anyone who is homosexually oriented), so I've never made an active effort to change things.
However, despite this eye-opening essay and good point you've made I still cannot bring myself to support gay marriage. Everyone has a right to be with whoever wants if that's what makes them happy. No one should forbid people to love each other despite gender. But if you try to see wider image than union of two people who love each other you'll see what kind of effect legalizing such marrige will do to the society? It will be like publically encouraging masses to be different - to try it other way. I don't claim it's necessarily a bad thing but do we really want our children to think having homosexual relationship is healthy, normal and right? Who knows what kind of fetishes will develop from it, even with people who are naturally attracted to opposite sex. Legalizing gay marriage can be first step to popularizing homosexuality and I don't even want to think of possible consequnces that will follow.
I was raised as an Orthodox but that doesn't interfere with judgement - I'm priding myself in being open-minded and I don't judge those different. In my opinion being gay is okay and nobody shouldn't and cannot stop gay couples from being together and expressing their love... but do they really need marriage? Imo, it will have much greater negative consequences if we legalize it just to make homosexually oriented people feel equal. They can find other way to bond for eternity, or whatever...
And btw, children raised by homosexual parents can also be abused and molested just as any other child out there. The chances are equal in my opinion but to adopt a child couple needs to be married so...
It wasn't my intention to insult anyone, I was just expressing my opinion here. If anyone has some other aguments they can PM me about it, I'm open to any discussions.
Again, thank you for writing this essay, it did make me think afterwards! ;)

This was very well written and organized. I was raised as a Catholic (but I see myself as more of a general Christian now) so I was also raised more conservative. It does say in the Bible that homosexual sex is a sin, which I understand and don't understand. I understand because our bodies were made for heterosexual sex only, yet I don't understand because isn't love, love? It's very complicated. I personally don't care about someone's sexuality, because it's not anything anyone can control. So... I'm not siding with anyone.

This story was amazing!

Yeah, I agree. It's time for the people to stop persecuting gays. Gays are human, deal with it. If you don't like them, then keep quiet. Anyone who hates them, just imagine, what if heterosexual marriage is banned? Would you be happy? No, don't think so.

You're right, homosexuals are human; we all the same, yet different.

Well written. I agree whole-heartedly.

You might want to cite your statistics, but otherwise very well written. Rather poignant at the end.
I agree completely, by the way.

Wow, wonderful essay. I actually read through all 19 pages of your review to see the reaction and views from everyone else. Although I cant respond to exactly who and everyone I read, I do agree and disagree with some reviews. I'm not religious nor do I know much about all the research provided so my review may be uneducated so I'm speaking from my mind and logic.
I completely agree with your essay. And all you religious flamers out there, I hope you stop with the whole 'Homosexuality is a sin.' Like someone else said before, if homosexuality is a sin, then why did god create gays and lesbians? Love is love and who are you to contradict that?
Another thing I have read and have agreed with is that people need to stop treating homosexuals as are people too. In fact, you wouldn't believe them as freaks until they told you they were gay or something. I actually have many friends who I later found at was gay. At first, I was appalled by that fact but later on learned how to accept it. They act just like any other person so whats so wrong with them?
And this is just something I have to say to all teh homosexuals out there. Take pride in what you believe in and people will learn to accept you. One of my friends once posted on his FB, 'I'M GAY AND I'M PROUD OF IT!'Instead of all his friends turning their back with disgust, we all admired his courage to stand up for what he is.
Sry if this is more like a rant then a review but I love your essay and I hope many more will read it.

So i don't really review that much but i figured that i would say something about this. I am something of a bad reference on this particular topic since I'm so far beyond laid back that people often wonder if i care about anything at all but the truth is that i do care and it seems to me that people need to be happier. Personally I've noticed that couples seem to be much happier than people alone and if the one that makes the happiest is your same gender then that is entirely your choice. As a straight person what right is it of mine to tell you what you can and cannot feel about another? With that being said i have hope for the future that gay and lesbian couples as the next generation takes control of the direction of our country.
Sorry if this is long or too much of a rant, i had to get it off my chest.

Dude, you're awesome. I have several gay friends, and I hope that they can get married if they want to. And honestly? I'm straight as a line and I don't want to get married. I'm perfectly fine sharing-or in my case, giving-that right to someone else. Don't let other reviewers bring you down; you've obviously done your research.
And seriously. What you've written is great, and I can't wait to see a change in that direction. We're already making small, baby, maybe steps.
