Commentary: Pretentious acceptance — Liberal approval of gays is insincere

I can honestly say that I love Generation Y. Contrary to what your great grandpa might say, I don’t believe that we will be remembered as the social media consumed, instant gratification seeking millennials. Our era will be celebrated as the generation of acceptance. More specifically, we will be commemorated as those who created equality for individuals of all sexual orientations.

This truly is an awesome thing. I am overjoyed that we are at a point in society where we welcome everyone’s unique ideas, preferences and personalities. On the other hand, I think that these well-meaning intentions of acceptance can do more harm than good at times.
