The queer cup overfloweth in today's McPaper, as there is another article about how gay teens are coming out sooner, and to greater acceptance, to family and friends. Of course, some asshat from Family Research Council gets to add his two cents:
Homosexuality is harmful to society, and young people have no business committing to a sexual identity until they're adults.I'm beginning to think groundless and ridiculous quotes like that may help more than hurt. Straight or gay, who didn't recognize sexual feelings before adulthood? When he makes assertions counter to that, it makes people suspicious of anything else he says. Maybe the numbers bear that out. From 1982 to 2006 the number of people who felt homosexuality was acceptable went from 34% to 54%. Ch-ch-ch-changes.
