Sexuality and Marriage

This website is about a book that has been written about the freedom of people being able to choose who they wish to marry whether it is someone of the same sex or even the opposite gender and saying how America is a place of equality where it does not matter-or should not matter. The book this webpage is based upon was written by Evan Wolfson, whom is said to be "one of the 100 most influential people in the world" according to the 'Time Magazine' and an
'LA times book review' have said that "Wolfson articulates the pioneering arguments that have made him one of the nations most influential gay activists".

Therefore, these views represent the fact that it shouldn't matter if someone breaks outside the mould of what is seen as 'normal' because at the end of the day we are all human and so we should respect that and let people get on with their lives rather than trying to bring them down because they are seen as different when really they are just trying to be them true selves. Furthermore, it is these fundamental reasons that Wolfson asks "Why shouldn't we protect all kids, support all families, treat all Americans equally?" because he believes it is a question of civil rights in that America should be a place where people can be themselves without the worries of what others might say.

In conclusion this website is just one of many that are trying to change the laws in the different states to allow same-sex marriages to be accepted into society as they believe America is a place that allows you to be whoever you want to be which suggests that identity is important in that you should be able to be yourself with characteristics that make you different from others, whilst being the same at the same time as we are all human and so we should have the same equal rights.
