I don’t have all that much to say about this that can’t be immediately surmised from the graphs and statistics, so let me just say: whenever you feel like the battle for the acceptance of gays and lesbians (and others that fall within the realms of LGBT folks) is going nowhere fast, you only need to take a look at these graphs …
|Gallup survey showing increasing acceptance of LGBT relations (52%, ↑12% over 10 years) vs. decreasing bigotry (43%, ↓10% over 10 years)|
|Gallup survey showing globally growing acceptance of LGBT relations across all demographics (social, political and religious)|
|Gallup survey showing increasing understanding that homosexuality is inherent (36%, ↑22% over 33 years), not acquired (37%, ↓20% over 33 years)|
… and you’ll realize that, even if we must keep fighting nonetheless and opposing bigotry at every turn, the world – or at least, our little pocket in it – is so much better off than it was just a few years back.
