I understand the anger and frustration you felt from reading this forum. Fortunately, it is the minority that are homophobes, but homophobia like any
other form of prejudice is very hard to erase. You can't change everyone's point of view, even by telling them facts and pointing out constant
hypocrisy. Thankfully, legally speaking, the tide is turning in the United States and all over the world. People are realizing gay people should have
the same civil rights and treatment as everyone else. There is now, unlike before, a public debate. People are learning their sibling, their family
member, their teacher, their doctor, their dentist, their co-worker is gay and there is nothing wrong with them. It is no big deal with the young
generations. In the United States where I live, there will be nationally recognized gay marriage within the next decade or two. No, equal rights will
not eliminate homophobia, just like racism still exists, but the world will feel a little more just.
