Sex is a biological term that differentiates between two biologically different human beings; the Male and the Female. When we talk about same sex marriages, we are intending to a sacred union of two people belonging to the same sex. This union can be seen when two females get married to each other or when two males get married to each other. It is not the sex or gender that binds two souls together but love and care for each other.
As we all know, love comes in all form. So, it be wrong to say a person cannot marry someone just because they are not from the opposite sex. The world is evolving more than ever and we need to keep up with times. We should not shun the concept of same sex marriage anymore.
In other words, gone are the days when people had to ashamed because of their sexuality. In today’s accepting world, we must make way for every human being irrespective of their gender. One needs to realise that there are more than two genders. The society needs to be more inclusive of the people. It will make the world a happier place when everyone feels that they are accepted and appreciated.
Same sex marriages are not a trend or western influence that is adapted by the society. Same sex attraction has existed from ancient times. It was not openly a d vividly talked about due to tha lack of knowledge and understandings. It is still a taboo in most of the world. With the struggle for these activities, it has now become possible for the same sex couples to be free and enjoy equal rights in some countries. It is our responsibility to educate ourselves and the world so that the same sex couples do not face discrimination.
Same sex marriages are ridiculed at most parts of the world by society. These type of marriages need to welcomed with joy, and the same sex couples must not be subjected to discrimination. Marrying anyone is basic fundamental right, thus, not allowing the same sex couples to get married is deciding them of their basic human right. We, as society, must take care that the LGBTQ+ community are not devoid of their fundamental rights and are treated with respect with everybody else.
Same sex marriages in India especially are not encouraged. There are ma y countries which have stringent laws against it yet the people are open-minded. In India, neither are the laws lenient but the people are also very narrow-minded.
Most importantly, they never give them a chance to prove themselves. Indian society does not like to change. It is not as adaptable as western countries. India still needs time to be okay with the concept of same sex marriage.
However, not knowing about the concept is a different thing and completely opposing is different. Not only in India, but in other countries, people do not support same sex marriage because they think it is against their religion.
Thus, this creates a lot of problems for them. People do not want the LGBTQ+ community to get the right to marry their lovers. This takes away their very basic human rights. The LGBTQ+ community has fought for a long time for their rights. We must not be against of any form of love, be it same sex marriage or anything else.
In India, same sex marriages are yet to be legalised. On 6th September 2018, the Supreme Court of India discrimalised gay sex marking a historic judgement in the Indian judiciary. The court also defined love to be without boundaries. This historic judgement is a result of prolonged protests and sufferings. It was welcomed and celebrated by the country with joy.
