Same sex marriage, a human right for all or a tradition that shouldn’t be changed?
Taiwan has recently become the first country in Asia to legalise gay marriage. Is this a sign of changing global attitudes that could continue or is this unlikely to go any further in this often traditionalist/religiously conservative part of the world? Should marriage be a human right for all or a reserved tradition for heterosexual couples only?

Equal human rights for all

Same sex relationships are widely recognised as a human right, so these couples should have the same rights as heterosexual couples and have their relationship recognised legally. Same sex relationships are near ubiquitous, appearing in all societies and even in nature amongst most species, it is only natural to recognise and accept that, and human traditions should be inclusive of all people, regardless of who their partner is. Currently Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain and Sweden have all legalised same sex marriage, while many others have legalised civil partnerships, and even the United Nations supports this basic area of what should be a universal human right.
