    same thing.  We are allowing her to have her viewpoint and her actions, just not without criticism.  No one suggested that refusing the party invitation should be illegal, and most did not suggest she be punished with anything beside disapproval.  Disapproval is how cultures enforce their morals, and she needs the information that hers are obsolete.  
    We tolerate her in that she is still allowed to do what she did.  Personally, I think we should approach her with compassion for her pain rather than with hate, but that's just where I am at this point in my life, not where everyone is.  
    We didn't promise her acceptance.  That's another whole discussion.
