As has been no said, every generation thinks less of the following generation, that doesn't mean it's true.
The other side to this generation being lazy is that physical labour is not nearly as necessary as it used to be. Mechanization and modern computers have reduced our reliance on manual labour in favor of more efficient methods.
I read an article about Juvenoia. How the current generation is paranoid about the next generation's actions and behaviour.
It's been going on for centuries.
Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it and wiser than the one that comes after it.
I don't think gay marriage is really an issue. It has no negative effect on society or on the children that they decide to have or adopt.
We are just scared of things that are unfamiliar because we have been raised a particular way. To see someone living life in any other way seems like threat to the future of our species. But it's not. Society is also subject to change and it doesn't have to be a bad thing. We need to keep evolving. You can't hold on to the past.
look at Victorian era literature and art and then tell me that every generation gets more sexualized.
the idea that every generation gets lazier is just something old people think. people always think it was better in their day. it isn't true. it's just different.
you still haven't established that being gay isn't moral. in what way is it immoral? two people who love each other making a commitment to each other isn't immoral.
We have morals but it gets in the way of someone's happiness might as well change it. am I right?
and in fact yes it does. Every generation is getting worse and worse. lazier and lazier. more and more sexualized than the next.
I can't change your mind and you can't change mind. I'm just simply saying you can't make everybody happy. In life you have to adapt to the situations your in. Even if its hard. If you acccept to much. Eventually it will go beyond overboard. Besides there's actual miserable people in this world. Plenty that we can actually concentrate and help on. Homosexual sure can make someone happy but its not needed. You can be single and happy. But its a choice and it doesn't affect me but this is just an opinion. I believe people have the right to have sex with who ever they want but I need don't believe in gay marriage. Its not about equality. They basically changed the definition of marriage so it can fit for gay marriage. Which is annoying and I don't see why gays want to get married in the first place and some want a pastor to wed them or even get married at a church. like wtf.
every generation says that the next one is bad. they say they have no morals or work ethic or whatever. it's a bunch of crap. just because we realize that we don't have to confirm to outdated rules about exactly how to live our lives does not mean we have no morals. and no I'm not gay. I'm just not homophobic.
if it isn't gsy people you have a problem with then you should have no problem with gay marriage, since that is the topic.
now a days its what makes you happy that is right. not the other way around. I can't deny happiness but many people in this world have f***ed up ways to be happy and I'm not even talking about homosexuals. its just how it is I guess. I'm just glad I won't be there to see things go into turmoil because limits began to expand more. hopefully at least I won't be there. nothing against homosexuals at all. I have nothing against anyone. because what they do is none of my business. what ever f***ed up things people do this world I can't do shit about it. Nobody can. if you say something like this many people will just stomp on your opinion and force what they think on you or else your a homophobe.
of course. not surprised. doesn't even matter to me lol. but that's how its gonna work out. eventually other generations will be encouraged to "many" things for happiness and we will wonder why and how that happened.
There is nothing wrong to be a gay or a lesbian its someone's personal choice and no one has any right to object
why would you stop someone from being happy if they aren't hurting anyone? isn't the pursuit of happiness part of the American dream? what grounds do you have to deny them happiness?
Equality has its limits. If equality truly exist everybody could do everything they feel is happy and makes them satisfied with life even if Its wrong or even If it gets worse. No such thing as equality and never will be.
what happened to equality?
Of course not. What happened to limits? Now a days everything is gonna be accepted as right just because it makes the person happy. like stop
With all these growing population we could definitely legalise gay marriage
I'm a straight woman but I'll vouch for gay marriage. It is for the reason to have the rights as couples: conjugal properties and a like. But I'm still and will always disagree for them to do the 'act'. My conception of marriage here is for them to be able to gain legal benefits of the law.
if it's not illegal for a male dog to hump another male dog, then it shouldn't be illegal for a man to hump a man.
this is important because to legalize gay marriage, being gay had to be legal first. people who oppose gay marriage would probably make being gay illegal too
Seriously, if someone thinks I am wrong, prove it. Otherwise, you are being irrational by making currently unfounded accusations.
It is not homosexuality that is legal. Homosexuality has been legal for decades. What is now, finally, illegal is the infringement of the rights of a notable portion of the U.S. population. This country is not based on religion and so the law based on religion that restricted the rights of a people as human as anyone else was unjust.
Also, your incest argument is invalid. Homosexual couples do not typically produce dysfunctional or unstable children that could ultimately have a terrible life at the hands of their parents. Homosexual couples adopt or get inseminated/get a carrier that is willing to be inseminated.
Incest and homosexuality are different issues entirely.
if gay is legal by reason of it's their freedom to choose their companion. then can we legalise incest marriage base on the same reasoning
The biggest opposition is from religious people usually or the narrow-minded. Marriage should be legal for all types of couples in my opinion. I feel that the separation of church and state should protect this.
Your gonna have to prove heterosexual marriage is better if your gonna assert that
gay marriage for me is like no harm to society. and if there are ppl still think that the marriage system is unbreakable, why just let them try...
How is normal better? I myself am bisexual. If I wanted to be with a man or woman that I love why is that the governments decision? In my opinion all hate towards the homosexual community has came from religion. I believe that to be the only reason. If not the biggest.
People marry because they want companion for their life.
They have right to select their companions.
The same way you can't get sexually attracted to men, the same way gay can't feel attracted to women.
It is just their brains are wired that way and they have hormones that incline them towards same sex.
only same sex can turn them on.
Would you rather spend your life with someone you love and are attracted to, or someone other people tell you is more "normal"?
why has to gay married..if normally is better...
Well it certainly helps me live as any heterosexual person is allowed to. It's not fair to deny someone the right to marry the person they love.
I'm OK with it but really don't give a f***.
