For my Social Media Class, we had to pick a social topic and explore how this movement has used social media to help or hurt their movement. One topic that has used social media to its full advantage since day one and still has successful running campaign’s is the movement for marriage equality.
In recent years the topic of same sex marriage is becoming harder and harder to just sweep under the rug. A topic that was once unspoken and seen as a forbidden topic, has now been thrust into the public eye. Members of this “secret society” and their supporters no longer want to be quiet, and are demanding the same rights as other Americans.
We have seen this movement transform into something that was never talked about, mentioned, or portrayed, now we see it everywhere. From commercials, television shows and movies portraying same sex couples, to even a few states changing laws allowing these couples to get married.
What are your views on Marriage Equality? Do you think just because someone has a different preference on who they choose to love that they should not be awarded a union as everyone else?
