"Abstract equality in itself does not translate into actual equality.

Beyond the Breading: the underlying issue of gay-rights illuminated by the Chick-fil-A debate.

Posted on September 25, 2012 at 11:28pm 2 Comments



Whenever I debate with anyone that opposes same-sex marriage, I get extremely irritated. I understand where the opponents are coming from, but it is difficult for me to accept that their reasoning is valid. Personally, I believe homosexuals should have the same rights as everyone else, including the right to marry whomever they wish and receive the same benefits as everyone else.

Hi Hung, 

My name is Claire Lu and I am currently a junior at Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, which is located in the heart of Silicon Valley. I am a new member of the International Youth Council!
I am the founder of the Youth Advocates branch of the Silicon Valley United Nations Association, founder of the Silicon Valley Youth Microfinance Rural Poverty Alleviation Campaign, and a student ambassador for the World Affairs Council in SF.  At school, I am the Assistant Secretary General of Model United Nations, Director of Public Affairs for National Honor Society, editor of the school newspaper, principal flutist for the wind ensemble, and president of Girls Learn International, an organization dedicated toward international development and promotion of education for girls. 
I became heavily involved in microfinance this summer, when I embarked on a microcredit finance rural poverty alleviation campaign in central/rural China. My model of microfinance was built on the premise of peer to peer lending, so I interacted with local villagers and interviewed twelve families to give loans to.
I am happy to have found a forum with members just as passionate as I am about microfinance and international development! 
As you can probably tell, I am passionate about international affairs and foreign policy!
Are there any opportunities for high school students to lead and take action?  I would be more than happy to lead any global outreach event for IYC USA.
Best regards,
Claire Lu

Uganda is in the process of enacting the Marriage and Divorce Bill,..its so extraordinary and against cultural values,.across the wings of women, men and the youth all saying no its not of any good use and there should not be something like that,..instead call it Marriage and Family Bill

Will do. I'll be on skype for most of the day. I believe our time zones are different, but I hope that doesn't conflict with anything.
