#InstagramTakeover by Spring 2020 Washington Semester Program student ambassador Trueman Andrews-Gibson @truemangibson > This picture is from last weekend’s Pi Sigma Alpha national conference for undergraduate research. As a member of Pi Sigma, the national political science honors society, I applied last semester to present a research paper and was accepted. The conference brought students from Universities across the United States to George Washington University. One other student from my home college, University of Redlands, presented as well.⠀
The title of my paper was “LGBTQ Rights—Why the Supreme Court Took the Wrong Approach in U.S. v. Windsor.” In the case, which struck down the federal law defining marriage as heterosexual, the Court found marital benefits to be a substantive right contained within “liberty” in the Fifth Amendment. I argued that the ruling was weak and subjective, and that the Supreme Court should instead recognize gay people as a protected class to make it harder for legislatures to pass laws distinguishing them from straight people.⠀
