After having watched 'For My Wife,' it is very easy to identify the arguments made within the documentary, as they appeal very strongly to pathos and in some people's opinion, logos.
The kairos is very strong as well, as the setting for this entire situation and for Charlene Strong's horrific experience of losing her partner, and then battling for equality. This adds to her ethos as well, as once stated within the documentary itself, "[Charlene] went through the experience. That makes [Charlene] more an expert than the experts."
The claim is very obviously that there should be marriage equality, and this is then supported by the grounds that love, no matter what kind and between who, should not be something sanctioned by the government and defined to discriminate against others.
Overall, my opinion of the documentary and the issues that arose from it are simple. Equality seems something that should have been fixed long ago, and it is only through the continuing movements that, I feel, the equality achieved has been retained.
There is a moment in the documentary in which a senator or representative of the opposing side makes an argument that the bill to recognize the domestic partnerships in Washington state was "not good" and if "they were allowed this...what else will they do."
I truly believe it is not a case of us vs they. It is a case of we.
