Hi, need to submit a 1250 words paper on the topic Public Policy Debate Related To Multiculturalism: Should Gays Marriages Exist. There has been a long-standing debate among the American public with regard to the issue with some questioning whether gay marriages should exist in society at all.
Gay marriages have existed in society even in ancient times, although different societies had different perceptions of such marriages. Today, however, the topic has taken a human rights approach to popularize and promote the acceptance of gay marriages in the US (Steinberg, 45). There are thousands of civil rights movements at the national and state level fighting to promote the acceptance of gay marriages through putting in place legal structures that will ensure gay marriages are considered the same as other marriages. Such efforts have not been without opposition from some sections in the community, thus producing two very opposing sides in this public debate. Opposition mainly comes from conservative Americans and mainstream religious groups.
The question of gay marriages has been in the public domain for a long and the current developments in the debate suggest that the issue is expected to linger a contentious issue in the eyes of the community for some time. The key arguments on both sides of the debate are very well known among Americans because the debate has highly been popularized in the media as well as in pop culture, where gay marriages have been portrayed in movies, music, and other forms of art. The topic .is therefore very well known among most Americans. The main fault lines in this debate are rooted in the fact that gay marriages have never been fully accepted in American society leading to discrimination against gay people with regard to accessing basic social amenities such as health. .
