Homosexuals and Legal Benefits

Like most of people, who recognize that same-sex marriages are not natural and healthy, I consider that homosexual unions should not be legalized as marriages equivalent to heterosexual marriages. The state should not destroy a traditional concept of marriage as “a voluntary union between a man and a woman, excluding other people”. Marriage between a man and a woman has always been a unique type of the relations which naturally leads to the creation of a newborn person and provides this person with the best conditions for education and development through stability and mutual obligations.

Individual’s Own Paradigm

Some of the essential aspects that influence an individual analysis and history of understanding is the cultural background as well as individual’s own paradigm. There are many clams which are made in science for instance; for a concept to be accepted in science it must be reproduced or replicable.

The African American Studies

There is partial criticism targeting the African American studies due to the fact that it is totally essential to view experiences of African Americans in the US in an international context due to the fact that this is the way it is in many publications. It is important at the same time to use the most suitable and logical methods in analysis of certain circumstances of each distinctive subset in the large population of African decent individuals.

Wager’s et al. study was conduc ...
