Homosexuality Is Gaining Wider Acceptance In The U.S.!!

Such wonderful news!

According to a new study, homosexuality is gaining wider and wider acceptance in the U.S.!

Even though the nation is still largely divided on the idea of Gay Marriage, take a look at this:

This wasn't always the case. In 1973, 70 percent of Americans felt homosexuality was "always wrong," the report revealed. By 2010, the percentage of those who felt that homosexuality was "always wrong" had dropped to 44 percent.

The researchers found a dramatic increase in support for same-sex marriage over the last 20 years, jumping from an 11 percent approval rate in 1988 to 46 percent in 2010. Meanwhile, 40 percent remain opposed.

Support for a gay person's right to speak publically jumped to 86 percent in 2010 — up from 62 percent in 1972. Meanwhile, support for homosexuals teaching at colleges or universities rose to 84 percent in 2010, up from 48 percent in 1973. The researchers also found more people approved of library books that cast a favorable light on homosexuality. Support for these books rose from 54 percent in 1973 to 78 percent in 2010.

Looks like the support in many areas for the LGBT community is growing all around! And that's an amazing thing to have

What gay rights needs is support for fellow humans who love and care for each other — who knows? Maybe in another few years that number will continue to grow to the point where prejudice against a person's sexual preference will start to disappear altogether!

    Perez. Please stop using the word 'preference'. It implies that it is just a whim depending on the day. 'Orientation' would drive home the point that we are born this way baby! Thanks. C in Seattle

    Hard to shun people that have had trauma based mind control forced on them in their childhood.

    @ KimK'sSaggyAss,

    Fortunately for the overall benefit of the world, your cult's influence is waning more so every day, so you'd be wrong again.

    eventually it won't matter what a bunch of religious breeders think. more and more of the children who are raised by these crazy freaks are not believing the fairy tales and the hatred their parents are trying to shove down their throats.

    @Kim K's SAGGY Ass "if you are born this way then Chaz Bono is a girl….she has a vagina…….
    explain that one".
    even though i'm sure this will go over your ignorant head and will not change any of your bigoted opinions here you go.
    Transgender is the state of one's "gender identity" (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one's "assigned sex" (identification by others as male, female or intersex based on physical/genetic sex). "Transgender" does not imply any specific form of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, or asexual; some may consider conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable to them. The precise definition for transgender remains in flux, but includes:
    "Of, relating to, or designating a person whose identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender roles, but combines or moves between these."
    "People who were assigned a sex, usually at birth and based on their genitals, but who feel that this is a false or incomplete description of themselves."
    "Non-identification with, or non-presentation as, the sex (and assumed gender) one was assigned at birth."

    Re: AttFinch – Kim has made it clear that he/she doesn't respond to logic, so you're wasting your time. I agree with you, though.

  13. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: TORTEZ – There are gay wolves, ffsakes. They babysit the pups while the couples skirt their territory and hunt. I'll bet they have fun forcing that trauma based mind control on them. Whooooooo!
