Taboo No more – Same Sex Marriage & Relationships

Once considered taboo. The issue of same-sex marriage was a trying one. Homosexuals were persecuted by Christians and heterosexuals.

Discrimination was abound.  Same-sex relationships were frowned upon. This forced homosexuals to do the only thing they could to survive – pretend. Thus the birth of the term “down-low”. People on the down-low, would go about living a normal heterosexual life, hoping that no one would see, or worse, break into the closet they so desperately try to protect. The closet that is home to their true self. The self that must remain in the shadows until it is safe.

The Christians and Muslims consider marriage to be a “sacred” act between a man and a woman. It is so sacred that very little opposition has been met by the American reality show – America’s most eligible Bachelor. Very few states and countries allowed homosexual couples to be legally wed. The veil of discrimination has been lifted in New York. On Sunday, New York will become the largest state to allow same-sex couples to wed.

The homo-hetero war is far from over, but this is certainly a step…a leap rather in the right direction.
