Social Issue Research Topic

What is your social issue?

My social issue is on Gay Adoption.

Why is it such a social issue? What do people disagree about in relation to this topic?

It’s such a social issue because many people don’t believe that LGBT people don’t have the same ability to raise a child the same as a heterosexual. Most people that disagree are religious and believe that it doesn’t follow their religion.

What is your proposed solution? Why do you think this is the best solution?

My solution would be to let gay and lesbian couples adopt because their are some many kids in the foster system who are looking for a forever home whether they are gay parents or not. I think this is the best solution because your putting a smile on the kids faces who are getting adopted.

What are pros to your solution?

My pro for this social issue would be that you should encourage lesbian & gay adults to help some of the children out by adopting them and giving them a loving home. Another Pro would be that gay and lesbian couples are setting goals to help more and more kids get out of foster systems.

What are cons to your solution?

My con of this social issue would be that gays and lesbians cannot provide the upbringing of a traditional family. Another con would be that Christian groups thinks that placing a child with a gay or lesbian couple would turn the child into something they are not.

Any questions to your audience members for help on your topic? (Need to post at least 2 questions)

Do you think my solution is correct?

Do you think gay adoption should be illegal?

Social Issues In The United States

In the website ISIDEWITH I chose the topic of Transgender Soldiers. 68% of the Untied States said their should be transgender soldiers and 32% said no. The 68% of the people said yes, as long as they can pass standard military physical and mental testing.  The other 32% are mostly veterans so they disagree the fact that transgenders are trying to join the army because they believe that transgender soldiers want the military to pay for their gender reassignments. In my opinion, I believe if you are willing to take the chance to fight for our country then go for it and you shouldn’t have anyone stopping you from doing that.
