Should same-sex partners have the same rights as heterosexuals?

  • They aren't hurting anyone

    Homosexual people should have the same rights as heterosexual people because, they should be able to love who they want to love without the law forcing them to love the gender that they aren't into, marriage is about commitment, it would increase the amount of children been successfully adopted ect.

  • YES! All love is equal!

    There are literally zero legitimate arguments that explain why homosexuals should not have the exact same rights as heterosexuals. Religion and/or how you were raised are not good reasons. Even if you do believe being homosexual is wrong, it does not give you the right to take away their rights. All relationships that involve consenting adults are okay! Love is not a choice. If they don't deserve rights, neither do you!

  • All humans should have equal rights

    I think that all humans should have equal rights. I find the discussion on gay rights to be almost comical in its absurdity. Homosexuals and same sex partners should possess everything that heterosexuals have in terms of rights and the pursuit to happiness. Denying them these rights is very disgusting.

  • They are still a couple

    This is another topic that will more than likely continue to be debated for years to come. That being said, I do personally think same-sex partners should have the same right as heterosexuals. As long as they share the same feelings for each other, then I don't see why they shouldn't.

  • People are people

    Same-sex couples are no different than heterosexual couples. They are not violating any inherent moral code, other than the discriminatory and bigoted words of fanatics. They are people, just like any other sort of people, consenting adults who love each other and want to marry. They are granted these rights by God, and should be by the government as well.

  • Marriage Equality for All

    Same-sex partners should have the same rights as heterosexual couples. The government provides tax breaks for those who choose to marry, have children, and buy houses. These tax breaks in turn stimulate the economy, which is only beneficial to everyone. Children raised by same-sex partners are raised in a loving home with no ill effects. Marriage equality is helpful, not harmful, therefore same-sex partners should have the same rights as heterosexuals.

  • Yes, the tide is turning and that is good.

    Any two human beings who want to enter into a legally binding relationship with each other should definitely be allowed to do that. The rights that come with marriage should be available to all people, but of course the down side of that contract should also be available and they need to be held to those, too.

  • Why should not they?

    Homosexuals should have the same rights as heterosexuals. We are all humans. Maybe with different points of views and tastes,but human is human. And we should all respect each other! Gay couples or lesbian couples...Is there any difference? They both stay woman or man ,but they have different tastes and they like different genders than others. I definitely say YES!

  • Yes, same sex partners should have equal rights just like hetero couples.

    Yes, I believe that gay people should have the same rights as heterosexual people. They should be able to get married and receive the same benefits as hetero couples. Everybody does not believe in religion and shouldn't have to follow religious definitions of marriage. Gay people getting married and receiving equal rights doe snot affect a heterosexuals marriage.

  • No, there is a government interest in heterosexual marriage.

    No, same-sex partners should not have the same rights as heterosexuals, because there is a government interest in traditional marriage. Religions should have a right to marry whomever they want, and people should be able to get married whenever they want. But traditional marriage is important to the function of society, so government rights should not apply.
