So, here's my college essay that is going to two colleges, it is theexact same topic for both. I would love if you guys read it and gave meyour opinion so I could make it better. It's on gay rights, so don'tsay anything bad about it that won't make it better please! Welp, hereit is!
Topic: Discuss some issue of personal, local, national, or international concern and its importance to you.
Whetherontelevision or in real life, gay rights are a controversial topic thateveryonehas heard of. Some people think beinggay is wrong but do notreally care, some may protest them by picketing orridiculing them, andsome may even go to extreme measures to hurt themphysically andmentally. Others would say that they are like everyone else, andshouldbe left alone. Those supporting gays might also participate in the“Dayof Silence.” It is a national event that takes place every year onApril 16thto bring awareness to the bullying of lesbians, gays,bisexuals, and transgenderpeople. People who take part in this day donot say a word because they areexpressing the silent pain that othersmay be experiencing.
Although I am heterosexual,Ifully support the homosexual community. It is not fair that they aredeprived ofrights taken for granted by other people. Americans came tothis country for freedom ofreligion. Back then, the majority ofthepopulation was of Christian faith, and still is today. SomeChristians maysupport homosexuality, but many do not. Isn’t this a formof church and statebeing intertwined, which is against the constitutionbecause of separation ofchurch and state? How does a person’s sexualorientation make them anydifferent? It does not, they are just like youand I. This issue is of greatimportance to me because it is somethingthat I strongly believe in.
