The figures illustrate the number of male and female students who attended four different evening courses at an adult education institution in 2009, and proportions of the attendances based on age.

It is clear that there were more women than men in the drama, painting and languages classes, while in sculpture class men participants outnumbered the women. It can also be seen that the majority of the students were the senior people (aged 50 years and above), while the lowest was those whose aged below 20 years. It is noticed that in the language class, the number of female students had reached 40 people, which was twice as the population of the males. In the painting and drama class, populations of men’s students were accounted for around 25 and 10 people, which were lower than the women’s figure which stood at 30 and 20 people. As for the sculpture class, the number of men participants reached 10 people, while the women’s figure was halved of the men’s.

Based on the age group, it is obvious that the highest proportion of the participants were the senior age people, accounted for approximately 42%. It was then followed by the figures of two middle age group (40-49 years and 30-39 years old) which stood at 26% and 16%. As for those who were between 20 and 29 years and below 20 years, their proportions were around 11% and 5% each respectively.      



In recent years, gay marriage has caused public controversy around the world. Although this trend is not gained by a number of people, the returns are highly justifiable.

On the one hand, it is clear that an acceptance of gay marriage will benefit not only those who belong to this kind of gender but also the whole society. First, by being applauded by the community, it is clear that gays will have more opportunities to make friends and seek a suitable marriage partner. In this way, they definitely gain a perfect marriage that leads to a happy life. Second, If gays can live with their true sexes and be respected by the society, they will study and work creatively and productively that benefits themselves and the society, especially in economic areas.

On the other hand, there are several reasons why the government should not ban gay marriage. First, it can deny that the third-gender-people are not guilty since they can not be chosen their gender since they were birth. they, therefore, have to have their human rights, including the right to choose their partner to get married. second, if gay marriage is illegal and gays are stigmatized, they will feel a sense of social isolation that may lead to the social problem or even crime. for example, in a number of nations where gay marriage is banned and the third-gender-people are considered as a kind of guilty, they will find it difficult to seek a job that allows them to cover their basic needs, they, therefore, have no choice but committing crime to survive.
