I AM astonished to read that Curtin University encourages marriage equality rights ( Southern Gazette, June 23).
This article is encouraging
young people who having a relationship with the same sex should be recognised as a marriage.
I do strongly object to this group wanting to call their relationship a "marriage". They can be associated with other terms. From a legal aspect, there should be a recognised term that agrees and protects this type of relationship.
But to call it a "marriage" is out of the question. This title is assigned purely to heterosexuals who want to form a lasting relationship. Ever since humans inherited this earth, a relationship between a man and a woman has been called a marriage.
In today's world where we are bombarded with technology that pushes all sorts of news to everyone, it is not surprising that many of our younger generations are being misled in many areas that are alien to a normal lifestyle.
I cannot believe Curtin University could possibly condone this situation.
