So, here's my college essay that is going to two colleges, it is the exact same topic for both. I would love if you guys read it and gave me your opinion so I could make it better. It's on gay rights, so don't say anything bad about it that won't make it better please! Welp, here it is!
Topic: Discuss some issue of personal, local, national, or international concern and its importance to you.
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 16thto 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 maysupport homosexuality, but many do not. Isn’t this a form of church and statebeing 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.
