Where is the Progress?
Recently, someone I know called a friend the 'F' word for someone who is homosexual. The party who used it thought it was funny, and didn't see how rude and hurtful it was. To me, it is no different than using the 'R' word or the 'N' word, but the party who used it probably thinks those terms are okay to use, too.
They're not. Words cut deep. It doesn't even matter the person's sexuality, the term is unacceptable.
My opinion had been that kids coming out today have an easier time, they don't have to be closeted. Then I realized, if their peer group is still using that 'F' word to insult someone, maybe it isn't. Have we made no progress in 30 years?
When does it end? Where is the progress?
