This paper discusses the inequalities that exist in society, focusing primarily on those suffered by the homosexual community. The paper suggests that, throughout the course of history, society, with the help of government coercion, has singled out various groups and punished them. In particular, the paper discusses the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy of the US military, the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transexual (LGBT) movement, and legislation to protect the rights of members of this group. The paper concludes with a review of the struggle for right to same-sex marriages and adoption of children by homosexuals.
From the Paper:"Currently, poverty rates of children in single parent homes are much higher than those in a married couple's household. It is believed that if these mothers and fathers who are single were married, they would in fact be making more money. In today's society, it is very difficult for anyone to live on one income, so yes; this is obviously a true statement. However, it does not necessarily mean the two incomes have to be from one male and one female in the home. Unfortunately, more than 25 million children in America alone are being raised in the home with only their mother."
