Why I'm generally not a social conservative. Not long ago, many norms now were considered wrong and destructive to society by those who clung to "the way things used to be," not understanding that society evolves. As humans, we can use reason to overcome irrational, knee-jerk fears that certain irresponsible and ill-informed individuals wish to perpetuate.
Truer words were not spoken. You're not going to "catch the gay" we're not something to disgust you. We do NOT prey on children. Ew. Even with the media trying to put a 'positive outlook' on homosexuality there are still those with their ridiculous beliefs and small minds. We ignore those.
