How long do you think it will be?

How long do you think it will be before all the anti LGBTQ bigots realize their views are socially unacceptable and they stop expressing them publicly so frequently? It always blows me away how many people post their hate speech here about the LGBTQ community and then act all surprised when people call them out for being hateful. I know that people who hold those beliefs aren't the brightest crayons in the box, but they have to know that their prejudices are simply not acceptable by the vast majority of society. You'd think they'd at least be smart enough to keep their hate speech to themselves unless they know they're in the company of other bigots.

Of course, I remember a time when people didnt usually express racist sentiments in polite company either, only if they were sure they were in the presence of other racists. These days people seem to be much more brazen with their racism too. Like racists assume that because I'm white I automatically belong to their racist club. Um, no.

So, how long before these people learn to keep their hateful mouths shut, do you think?

And, just to be clear, calling people out for their conscious decision to hate, persecute, and discriminate against a person because of a trait they are born with or otherwise cannot control (whether that be race, sex, ability, class, nationality, body type, gender, or sexual orientation) is not discrimination. Making the conscious choice to hate, persecute, and discriminate against people based on traits they were born with or otherwise cannot control is. So, please bigots, don't get up in arms pretending you're a victim here. You choose to be a bigot.

Well it took years for white supremicists to realize their views are socially unacceptable... and many still don't realize it.

It took years for men to realize their views of women are socially unacceptable... and many still don't realize it.

I don't think there will ever be a time when people are 100% accepted by everyone. But as long as we keep making strides; we're being successful
