IAmA 25yo gay guy. I want to anonymously thank all the many hetero people who support gay equality and make progress possible.
I keep being amazed by how many straight people understand and support the issues of gay equality. On Reddit and other places, I see hetero people stand up to bigots and argue for equality. I read about polls showing that growing majorities support gay rights, especially young people by huge percentages. People all over are finally calling out the hate groups and the bullies. It's a great feeling and huge change from even a few years ago.
LGBT are a tiny minority and always will be. We grow up feeling weird and face a culture of bullying and organized, orchestrated hate from religious fanatics who make money and get votes by demonizing and degrading gay people. There's no way we could ever have a chance if it wasn't for the decency of a growing majority of straights.
So I just wanted to anonymously say thanks, that's all.
