I understand their sentiment and appreciate it for it's intention.....but I am skeptical. Hopefully it turns out as intended I guess.
If they build a tolerant environment, shouldn't their wish just happen naturally? Just don't tolerate misogynist and homophobic assholes, and the rest takes care of itself.
Speaking of which, I saw this today and found it interesting:
1 in 6 Gen Z adults are LGBT. And this number could continue to grow.
I don't buy it. Call me oldf-ashioned but I believe that sexual orientation is mostly decided by biology. We are animals after all, thinking ones, but sex is something that is instinctive to us. We don't choose our sexual orientation we are born with it. If that article is factual, then these kids are just caving in to the social norms that are imposed upon them today. It's not only acceptable to be LGBT today, it's actually COOL, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of them are just pretending.
It *could* a fad thing, I can't deny based on how my straight daughter talks about LGBTQ stuff frequently. However, supposedly everyone is on a spectrum, so my thought is that if you had a 20% homosexual proclivity in your genetic makeup, in the past you'd suppress it or not admit it on a survey due to the devastating stigma. These days with it being more acceptable, so people don't avoid admitting it, resulting in the larger response rates.
'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? - GC
