Name: Rea Homatenou Section: ENG103D Instructor: Dr. Stavros Stavrou Karayianni Assignment: Research Paper Title: Gay marriages should be made legal. Do you agree or disagree? Discuss. Homosexuality has always been an easily misunderstood aspect of human's sexual life. People have diverse opinions but also very complex feelings over homosexuality. From the ancient years homosexuals were called "human garbage" and thought to be unclean by society. They were always isolated and rejected because of their sexual preferences, which were something different and unusual in comparison with the standards of society.

So as we accept every person with its benefits but also its disadvantages, we should also accept the homosexuals.
