Lesbians are two times more likely to attempt suicide than straight women.
Attempts by gay and lesbian youth account for up to 30% of all completed suicides.
Gay teens are 3 times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.
Gay youth are 4 times more likely to make a suicide attempt requiring medical attention.
Gay men are six times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.
Ask your opponent what bad things have happened to these countries after the legalisation of gay marriage: Argentina,Belgium,Canada,Denmark,Iceland…
South Africa,Spain and Sweden.
Your opponent will most likely bring up the ":if we allow gay marriage, the paedophilia or bestiality or incest will come next":. Just use the argument about INFORMED consent. If a person cant give consent and fully understand the consequences then he/she could get hurt. Same applies to animals. Also bring up the risk of inbreeding with incest couples.
Compare this to the civil rights in the USA in the 1960’s. There is no difference between a black man and a white man in the same way there is no difference between a gay man and a straight man 🙂
Good luck. Hope I helped.
I’d use this last because I think it’s strong. How is it that there are people who can marry just for money, citizenship and for their own conveniance, when two people who actually love each other can’t, all because they are both of the same gender?
They will use points such as the:
The bible and God says that you shouldn’t be gay: say the bible also says that you should love one another, and the bible is culturally biased at the time, it also says woman should cover their heads and almost no christian does that. Also say that the bible says you should love one another and not to judge, so you shouldn’t ‘hate’ gays.
-They might say it is unnatural: Just say it is natural obvioulsy for all gays.
there are no real good reasons… being gay is a perversion no matter how our society tries to sugar coat it
