How America should react to homosexuals Many experts agree that homosexuality has existed as long as human beings themselves although the attitude towards them has undergone dramatic changes in some countries Accepted by many societies during Greek and Roman era most of the time homosexuals were considered to be sinners against nature and even criminals In Medieval and modern periods homosexuals were prosecuted Enlightenment brought some liberation substituting death penalty by imprisonment In Nazi Germany so-called doctors tried to cure gays by the ways of castration and extreme intimidation Until 1973 attempts to find a cure against homosexuality what by majority was viewed as a disease were continued Today when research on twins suggests that sexual orientation is not a choice but our genetic predisposition homosexual acts are still considered to be immoral and even illegal in majority of countries and in the eyes of most religious groups homosexuals probably always will be the subjects of anathema As much as the future may look gloomy for many gays and lesbians all over the world there are remarkable changes in public opinion and officials attitudes toward homosexuals in some countries For example in 1989 Denmark was the first to allow the same-sex marriage In the United States the subject of homosexuality remains controversial For example In Hawaii three homosexual couples asked the court to recognize their right to get married and the court did However the state government refused to legalize this marriage Consequently a new amendment was introduced to the state Constitution At the same time majority of the states are not even considering this option and homosexuality itself is still illegal there Still not only authorities try to determine the position they should take towards homosexuals many common Americans also have no clear understanding of how to react to homosexuality Why should we bother to find the answer to the questions who are the homosexuals and where do they belong in our society
