In recent discussions of Gay rights around the World, a controversial issue has been whether
LGBT people shouldn’t be allowed civil rights or LGBT people to live freely and choose what they want to do in their life.
On the one hand, some argue that people in the LGBT community should be punished for being gay in foreign countries.
From this perspective, LGBT would be treated ten times worse in life..
On the other hand, however, others argue that LGBT people should be allowed to live the life they choose for themselves including marriage. In the words of one of this views main supporters, “ In 2011, British Prime Minister David Cameron, who bucked the majority of his Conservative Party by supporting gay marriage, signaled that Britain might restrict foreign aid to members of the Commonwealth that discriminate against gays.” (KIRCHICK 1).
According to this view, foreign countries are cracking down on homophobia and bills that ban homosexual relationships, even going to the far extent to cut off foreign aid. In sum, then, the issue is whether certain countries should allow civil rights and LGBT people to live freely or LGBT people should be punished for being gay..
My own view is that people shouldn’t be punished for being gay because its their life and they get the do whatever they choose to do.
Though I concede that just because a country has a ban on gay relationships, I still don’t believe foreign aid should be cut because innocent people don’t have a say in what government officials side with, I still maintain that LGBT people should be allowed to live their lives regardless of their sexual orientation.
For example, people may be allowed to live their homosexual lives safely and will feel more confident about being homosexual.
Although some might object that men and women who are gay should be imprisoned, I reply that just let them live their lives it doesn’t matter to you if they’re gay because at the end of the day we’re all human.
The issue is important because LGBT people are treated with respect, if resolved LGBT people live a better life, LGBT people won’t be scared to live their lives.
