2015 news: Erika & Audrey

Summary: In a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote in June 2015 that the constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. The decision, which was the culmination of decades of litigation and activism, set off jubilation across the country, the first same sex-marriages in several states. It came against the backdrop of fast moving changes in public opinion.

Opinion: I feel that this news deserves to be on the cover of a magazine because this piece of news on same-sex marriage is one of the biggest news of 2015. As the world changes, laws against homosexuals became loosened and more people are able to voice out their opinions. Although I personally do not revitalize gay marriages, I feel that every single person in this world should have the rights to love anyone and choose to marry whom. Nothing can prevent someone from loving another. Not gender, not age, not size or colour, It would be incredulous and unreasonable to do so. However, legalizing same sex marriages could open the flood gates. Many problems would arise. Gay couples will not be able to produce offsprings. Even if they adopt, their children would deprive of either father's or mother's love which is not healthy for a child's development. Also, our future generations will be strongly influenced by this, and there is a high possibility that there will be more and more gay couples in the future. Marriage is between two individuals of different sex and never the same.
