Hey guys, this is one of my college essays. I would love to have your opinion on it so I can make it better! But the deadline is Nov. 1 so yeah... So whatever you have something to say to, copy paste the original and then the one with the correction so I know what it is you are correcting. The thing copy/pasted weird so don't mind if some words run together. THANKS!
The Prompt: Discuss some issue of personal, local, national, or international concern and its importance to you.
The Essay: (It is about gay rights)
Whether ontelevision or in real life, gay rights are a controversial topic that everyonehas heard of. Some people think beinggay is wrong but do not really care, some may protest them by picketing orridiculing them, and some may even go to extreme measures to hurt themphysically and mentally. Others would say that they are like everyone else, andshould be left alone. Those supporting gays might also participate in the “Dayof Silence.” It is a national event that takes place every year on April 16th to bring awareness to the bullying of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenderpeople. People who take part in this day do not say a word because they areexpressing the silent pain that others may be experiencing.
Although I am heterosexual, Ifully support the homosexual community. It is not fair that they are deprived ofrights taken for granted by other people. Americans came to this country for freedom ofreligion. Back then, the majority of thepopulation was of Christian faith, and still is today. Some Christians may support homosexuality, but many do not. Isn’t this a form of church and state being intertwined, which is against the constitution because of separation ofchurch and state? How does a person’s sexual orientation make them anydifferent? It does not, they are just like you and I. This issue is of greatimportance to me because it is something that I strongly believe in.
