4th Grade Essay on Gay Marriage: You Can’t Stop Two Adults From Getting Married
Lots of people commented on the writing errors, on the spelling errors, but what made this 4th grader’s essay so popular is his take on gay marriage. Leave it to the clarity of a child to make adults see some sense. This essay also points to a growing and changing social structure willing to embrace gay marriage because it is seen as something that moves out of the public moral standard and toward more of a privacy issue, that two adults can get married without the interference of the general public’s input:
Why gay people should be able to get married is you can’t stop two adult’s from getting married because there grown and it doesn’t matter if it creeps you out just get over it. And you should be happy for them because it’s a big momment in their life. When I went to my grandparents wedding it was the happies momment.
As you can see gay people should have the right to get married and you shouldn’t judge other peoples lives because if you was gay you wouldn’t want people talking about you.
Yahoo’s article points out that this was originally published by the student’s teacher to show how far the student had come in distilling his argument, and what a stellar argument it is.
The other latest handwritten missive providing support to gay marriage is from the father of a son who was trying to figure out how to tell his parents he is gay.
The complete and total love from this father is an amazing testament to how powerful and generous we humans can be, even in these times of intolerance, to show that it is possible, that even children have this ability, just like the father, to show love and compassion to all people. Note that the child makes the argument that people who are gay should be treated like someone else would want to be treated, that people shouldn’t live in judgment.
Truer words were never spoken, and even with the spelling errors, that writing teacher deserves an A+, and so does his student.
