I hate how we apparently live in a society of "tolerance", a society where supposedly it's ok to be different, when really if you look closely nothing
has changed.There's no such thing as tolerance in our society.
People are still ostracized for being black, white, Asian, homosexual, a single parent ... If anything intolerance has evolved. Now, not only are people persecuted for their race and sexual preference, they’re attacked for their taste in music, the way they do their hair and make-up and how they dress. Instead of celebrating peoples’ differences society condemns them and sticks them with labels such as “Goth” and “Emo” - terms that are meant to be derogatory and segregating.
As a bisexual teenager living in Australia I understand the improvements that have been made throughout the world over the years. In most parts of the world it is no longer illegal to be homosexual. Many places are now legalizing gay marriage and the rights of same sex couples to raise a child together. However, what I don’t see changing is the attitude
. I know it may seem as though homosexuality is reasonably acceptable in today’s society, but from my experience it really isn’t. People may not balk at the sight of a same sex couple, many people even believe that they’re completely fine with the idea of homosexuality - until they find out that someone close to them is gay.( cut for lengthCollapse )
