  •  Fear of confrontation... (10+ / 0-)

    In my opinion we crossed the critical mass where many people were no longer afraid of appearing "radical" or "fringe" by voicing their (silent) support of LGBT rights. That's like grassroots level.

    In electoral sphere, We now have lots of big name politicians, from Senators, Governors and now, a President that aren't treating LGBT rights like a niche concern. And demonstrating they can advocate and vote for them and get reelected just fine.

    And corporations like Starbucks and General Mills (and the whole tech crowd) can be gay friendly and feel zero pushback.

    Opposition is now in a death spiral as their popularity dwindles, so does fundraising and it's all a vicious cycle for them.
