TheBizMan said...My question now becomes, has the younger generation influenced the older generations to be more open to gay issues?
I'm sorry did I offend you with my little joke at the end? I went as far to put a tiny disclaimer at the bottom...
My eyes aren't what they used to be. No offense taken. Had I thought you a total ageist I'd have clicked ignore within 3 seconds and not have bothered commenting on the thread.
Apology appreciated & accepted nonetheless. And my apology to you if I sounded offended. I hadn't thought I did. I was just taking the very same stats and reading them otherwise, how they could also be legitimately interpreted.
I think that it is wonderful that so many more younger people are more accepting of us as fully human being. I'm disappointed even their percentage is not higher, but it is incredibly fun to listen to techno coming out of my neighbor's garage where the kids workout, knowing how their father tries preaching Jesus at me. Devil music, oh nooos.
But while some young accept us who otherwise might be right-wing influenced, I think you have to look at what affiliations make up the majority of the older who are not with us and I think you will find that it might not be so much of an age issue afterall. Having always socialized with my parents' generation and having inherited some of mom's friends, I can tell you that all the older people I know are for us 100%.
