No one should feel unsafe in there own neighborhood. We are citizens and it is time we are given a voice. We cannot be supressed into the shadows of society as the "minorites" they want to make us. Society needs to start accepting us as people and stop demoralizing us for our differences. Government and Organizations should have no right in shunning individuals who follow the law or follow the rules to join as a member.

The constitution is the foundation on everything the u.s. stands upon. When the constitution was written it was written for the people. No one was excluded or left out. Even though there may be people they did not have in mind at the time. The document was meant to be a foundation for all of government.

The Amendment 10 states "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." This is proof enough that power is in the hands of the people. To refer to the people is to gay people as well. To limit power from LBGT people is to limit rights from the people. To revoke power from a certain group is to have a civil dispute that needs to rectified if the constitution still remains true.

The Amendment 19 states "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex..." It is written within that someone cannot be judge on sex. In fact, to imply that each sex has equal rights implies that same sex have equal rights. With this reason alone to revoke same sex marriage is as illegal as revoking opposite sex marriage. LBGT rights are clearly outlined in the Constitution of the United States.

Bullying does not happen to gay students because they are gay. It happens because the public is telling everyone that is normal and to accept that gays are different. Bullies are not just kids, but future employers and associates who are told by the public they do not deserve the same rights. The end result is being pushed to the edge and not surprisingly living the lives they expect gay people to live. It is an endless cycle of domination and corruption.

Whether being gay is right or wrong. The constitution does protect the rights of those who are. Just as law is supposed to be without religion so it also does not judge individuality. the law is only to protect the people and not judge every little thing we do. To keep a civilized and modern society no one was excluded from these rights. We must fight to protect those who wish to exploit there hatred as just and a means of a "witch hunt."

      As a member of the LGBT community, I cannot stress enough the continued importance of the reversal of discriminatory laws and practices in this country. Where is the equality? Where is the freedom?
