Same-sex Marriage and Confucian Ethics: A Response to Professor Fang Xudong
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
Fang Xudong’s paper is in general well-argued. However, I raise two considerations to facilitate further discussion. First, I suggest that Jiang Qing’s idea of particular rights deserves further examination. In particular, it seems reasonable to claim that there are indeed fundamental differences between same-sex marriage and heterosexual marriage. Second, I suggest that Confucianism need not embrace the idea that heterosexual marriage is the only way to fulfil Confucian values.
