Gay marriage

Why is so hard for people to have equal rights? Everyone is allowed to get married but gay people. Some people can’t even stand them. Gay marriage should be allowed because u don’t understand why some people are gay they could have been raped my man or even touched n a way that can bruise them for life. I hate when you hear people talk about how gays shouldn’t be allowed well what can you tell me when you see people do drugs or a man rapes his wife or having sex before marriage or people who bully gays jus because they don’t like the different sex how are you to have more respect for people who touch little kids n places they don’t want to be touched in or if your mom molest her child? Gay people should be no scared to come out of there house knowing there not going to be beat up or people who look at them dirty because you see to guys holding hands. Even preachers preach about how gays are bad and that you shouldn’t be that way but how did homosexuals get left out of the fire why is it so bad for someone to like the same sex. How would you feel if your own mom took your entire rite away because you where gay or your best friend hate you now because you don’t like guys. All the pain all the suffer we have to go through just to live in this world its hurts to know people will judge you because your not like them so many people are afraid to come out because they sit there and listen to people talk so about them and they don’t want them to say the same thing to them. This world is an evil place and we have to live in it everyday knowing that we are hated or we make them disgusted it’s just not fair and it will never be. Gay people don’t have a say in anything in this world because people just think that our heads are twisted up and we don’t know what where doing. Just once why can’t we be apart of something or have a say in laws or amendments just once can’t we feel like where worth something instead of being looked at or talked about behind out backs. That’s why I think they gays should have the rite to b married and not just straight people we’re all humans and we disserve the rite to be anything we want to be and not be alone in the dark because somebody hates gay people we should have the rite to be married and excepted as people in this world.
