Being against Gay Marriage is discrimination, it is no different than not allowing African Americans to go to white schools. Telling a portion of the American people that they are not allowed to do something because of who they are, is wrong. All human beings should be treated as equals and given the same rights as everyone else.


gay couple cannot produce children. to have kids gay couple need outside help. kids are the primary objective of marriage. if for kids gay couple need heterosexual help then why not have a permanent heterosexual partner?
Debate Round No. 1


Not all straight men and women can have children, what if you are sterile? Does that mean woman who have their tubes tied should not be allowed to marry?
The primary objective of marriage is happiness, how can we deny happiness from anybody?
Another point is adoption. Gay couples can adopt children and make the world a better place for a lonely child.

A child is a young one you care for and raise, not blood.
A partner is someone you love, not based on gender.


at present gay couple faces discrimination in united states. in 28 states it is legal to do LGBT discrimination. this means that a person may say that "i don't work with you." and you do not sue that person in court. there may be other legal problem. there may be discrimination in workplace, in society. why put your life in so much trouble?

Debate Round No. 2


What is most popular is not always right
What is right is not always popular

If so, all of those 28 states are breaking the federal law
If the law says it is illegal to love another person, that is no law I wish to be under
We are denying a group of people basic civil rights
Intolerance is the only reason for apposing gay marriage

Marriage is the bonding of two people who love each other, gay or straight. We shall not deny basic freedoms and we should not discriminate against anyone

That is why gay marriage should be legal


law forbid gay marriage in some 28 states of the US. besides 50% of the total population of the US don't like gay marriage. so there is a social opression too. considering both legal and social opposition, it will be wise not to legalize gay marriage.
