Adesuwa Onyenokwe - “Let’s keep the gay marriage rights laws away from our shores”

 

Publisher of Today's Woman Magazine, Adesuwa Onyenokwe shares her thoughts on the recent legalization of gay marriage in the US and how it can catch on around the world. Read below...
I wonder if people have really thought about the implications of the American Supreme Court judgement in favour of gay marriages across the USA. Before that decision and Obama’s accent to the law, it was illegal in only 37 of the 52 states! 
However this development is a 'yes' that may ripple around the world because the USA is the world’s big brother. They sneeze the rest of the world catches a cold. So that’s where my concern lies. Being gay will soon become ‘fashionable’.
