Nice rant. I'll answer some of it. You see, many, many decades ago life was really nice. A husband would work, his wife would manage the house and the children would go to school and do kid things. One person working was enough to own a home, support a family, etc. Then some people started saying "I want to be accepted for ". People figured..."what the hell...it couldn't hurt". And now, here we are today. I won't rant on all the problems because we all know them.
Some people think that belief in a God helped us all. Some think that raising the previously "wrong" to the new "normal" was a bad idea. Some think keeping your own feelings to yourself instead of parading up and down the road wasn't such a big deal. We used to make people scared to commit crimes, we used to know the word "respect". But again...here we are.
So "why the hate?". I believe many just wish life was simple again and that this "I'm special and you have to accept me" is part of the problem. I agree to an extent. We are all special. But we don't need more labels to divide us. And we are today, more divided than at any time in history...that I remember.
That...and the government sucks
