a recent controversial issue in the media that stretched societal tolerance of free speech.
Controversial topics refer to those social issues which are highly debatable in their nature. In simple terms any topic on which strong debates can be held thus creating definite kind of controversies are considered as highly controversial. [ These are issues about which people have very strong yet opposing thoughts and positions, which lead to much dispute and argument. These thoughts and
positions exist because of different religious, social, or political beliefs people might have. Controversial topics polarize society, with opposing parties making strong arguments for or against some particular issue. ]

[ Some studies suggest that "children brought up by gay fathers or lesbian mothers show disturbances in gender identity or in gender role behavior" and that some children "will themselves become gay as a result of living in a gay environment" (Kotulski, 167). In this case, children would become confused as to their individual gender differences and might not see nor understand the differences between men and women.

Third, the children of homosexual parents often experience hardships linked to social relationships, such as with other children, heterosexual men and women and even authority figures, like policemen and social workers.
