I understand where you're coming from, OP, but don't question why things are ok now, just go with it.
A lot of this stuff has to do with where you were raised. When I was a wee lad, it wasn't cool to read comic books. Nor was it cool to watch
cartoons. I was made fun of all the time because of my interest in video games. Worst of them all, though, was my belief in UFO's and
extra-terrestrials. You almost never wanted to talk about it, because people would start dubbing you crazy and retarded. Yes, I did grow up in a
small town. But even though those things weren't cool, I still did them anyway. Hell, almost every single report, for almost any class, was done
about the UFO cover-up. Ever since I was in 5th grade.
As I got older, I started noticing the things you are. Everything I enjoyed, and was made fun of for enjoying, is now ok to enjoy. I know more
adults now that watch cartoons, than I ever did when I was younger. Hell, I've met people of all ages that play MMO's and such. The thing I find
the most amusing, is how it seems it's now ok to tell people you believe in UFO's. I very rarely ever hear anyone say they don't exist, it's now
become "Well, the universe is huge, so they got to exist somewhere. Just not here."
Point being, people are more accepting, they're minds are more open, it's the natural evolution of thought. Don't question it, just go with it.
To me, this is actually a good thing.
