I am in the stage of watching videos and trying to focus the direction I want my paper to go I do not work well with drafts. ( I mentioned this with the Mapping Project), because I want ot get a full scope of my issue and write a detailed paper, and If I write a draft I sort of trick my self into going in a specific direction , just to meet the deadline.

I have received over 120 responses to my survey and gotten a variety of opinions on the topic and Im still not entirely sure which stakeholders Iwould like to make my main ones. How many can I choose as my main ?

Prof. Rios I do..but I cant (Possible Title) In the land of the free and the home of the brave currently the most controversial topic and civil rights movement today in America is the issue of gay rights and gay marriage. Majority of the states in America currently do not recognize same-sex marriage. What is the issue surrounding gay marriage and the laws preventing such? Who does this law actually affect? Under the law everyone has equal rights and these rights are available to people across the board no matter their sexual orientation or beliefs. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all
men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, so why are some individuals restricted to participate in something that makes them truly happy ?. Marriage according to many individuals is

the union between two individuals who profess to be partners with that person. In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word marriage means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife. Does the marriage of same sex couples destroy the sanctity of marriage? So the law limits this act to people who wish to marry people of the opposite sex. What are the issues surrounding gay marriage in America and why have some States and people chosen not to recognize it? As it were this issue affects a wide array of types of people in America, and they each have their own vested interests. LGBTQ Community One would think or expect that everyone within the LBGTQ Community especially gays and lesbians would be ecstatic about the large scale discussion of this topic because it gives them the right to get married under the law. A lot of the member of this community however does not wish to be married they just want to have a union that is recognized under the law which receives as much benefits that a married couple receives under the law. To them marriage is a religious concept, and they do not believe church and state should be involved.

Stake holders questions( How I am going to organize my paragraphs):

Description of the stake holder There current state without the nation wide acceptance of same sex marriage Their state if same sex marriage was accepted nationwide DO they have any power in the issue What were the votes of their demographic? Does the stake holder old the same views across the board?

I think you started really well. Your introduction is very good and interesting. You may want to introduce all the stakeholders you are going to discuss in the introduction before you start the next paragraph. Another thing I noticed was that you did not mention how much power or interest the individuals in the LGBT community have so just make sure you mention that so you dont lose points. Other than that, your transitions between sentences are good and flow well together. You can clearly tell what your focus is and your paragraphs are not too long. Do not forget to quotes some sources and you should get an A! -Michele Prezzemolo

Your intro caught my attention. It was very well written. It sounds like youre writing an argument paper though, but maybe that will change once you write a little more. Make sure that in your intro you mention the topic youre doing (stakeholders, interest, power, etc.). This is a very good start! -David Zheng

Doneisha Steele Stakeholder Analysis 6/19/2013

Prof. Rios I do!! but I cant In the land of the free and the home of the brave currently the most controversial topic and civil rights movement today in America is the issue of gay rights and gay marriage. Majority of the states in America currently do not recognize same-sex marriage. What are the issues surrounding gay marriage and the laws preventing such? Who does this law actually affect? Under the law everyone has equal rights and these rights are available to people across the board no matter their sexual orientation or beliefs. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all
men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, so why are some individuals restricted to participate in something that makes them truly happy ?. Marriage according to many individuals is

the union between two individuals who profess to be partners with that person., but according the law in the United States, the word marriage means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife. Does the marriage of same sex couples destroy the sanctity of marriage? So the law limits this act to people who wish to marry people of the opposite sex. Does the marriage of same sex couples destroy the sanctity of marriage? Will the legalization of gay marriage destroy the nuclear family in America? How will the children be affected? What are the issues surrounding gay marriage in America and why have some States and people chosen not to recognize it? As it were this issue affects a wide array of types of people in America, and they each have their own vested interests and opinions on the topic. This paper seeks to explore these schools of thought. LGBTQ Community One would think or expect that everyone within the LBGTQ Community especially gays and lesbians would be ecstatic about the large scale discussion of this topic because it gives them the right to get married under the law. A lot of the members of this community however does not wish to be married they just want to have a union that is recognized under the law which receives as much benefits that a married couple receives under the law. To them marriage is a religious concept, and they do not believe church and state should be involved. A popular view is that gay marriage ends the progression of the gay community to express themselves of separate entities to what society deems normal and moral in regards to a Christian lifestyle. Some argue that Gay activists are rejecting civil unions that are literally identical to state-enforced marriage contracts except in name, on principle, because they want

to mimic the religious heterosexuals that hate them. Members of the LGBTQ community do not want to be likened to the people that reject them. They want to enjoy their freedom and reject the oppression of the Church over men, and men over women(gayvmarriage) They however have little power in this debate because they are a minority within a minority.
