hello i am a normal 14 year old kid... so if you respond please don't use big vocabulary. ok so i believe gay marriage is perfectly fine. although i am not gay i would defend my fellow friends, family, and people of the world on their right of happiness. i believe that gay marriage is fine because, think of it as a man who is different. that man believes in his own things and minds his own business. he does not interfere with the outside world because he will be made fun of for speaking his mind. he is also hated for doing what he thinks is right even though he is not creating crime or causing pain to anyone. ive seen in your past arguments that you think being gay is unjust. i believe taking away gays, is like taking away freedom. it ruins america. this is what is destroying america. people making up new rules to people that arent doing anything wrong besides liking a man of the same gender or female and female. please respond it would mean a lot.

The Jim Spiegel argument goes as follows:

1. Heterosexual union is the indispensable means by which humans come into existence and therefore has special social value (indeed, the greatest possible social value because it is the first precondition for society).

2. The indispensable means by which something of special social value can occur itself has special value.

3. What has special value to human society deserves special social recognition and sanction.

4. Civil ordinances which recognize gay marriage as comparable to heterosexual marriage constitute a rejection of the special value of heterosexual unions.

5. To deny the special social value of what has special social value is unjust.

6. Therefore, gay marriage is unjust.
