    Bingo. It’s like flipping another driver off from the safety of your car. They’re not really another person, they’re an automaton inside a steel cube. Depersonalized, they’re safely attacked.

  3. The loudmouths are not the people. I’m about to start my seventh decade. I have been aware of homosexuality since childhood. Almost all extended families have a homosexual or two. I don’t think any specific event has triggered the growing tolerance that is now evident. I liken it more to the civil rights movement. It’s not so much that people have changed their attitudes as it is that they have made the loudmouts socially unacceptable.
