  •  I have a theory about that... (1+ / 0-)

    It (or at least, some, of the emergence of greater tolerance,  and even normalization) is driven by the young who see it as a most excellent vehicle for teen rebellion (it gets a reaction!) plus, as an extra added attraction, kids can't get pregnant from gay sex and there's an outlet for the hormone storms that doesn't have the pregnancy consequence.

    What's not to like about the idea?

    There is a generation of Americans, Teens of the Crash, who,  when they actually look around seriously at their prospects for employment, are gonna be like, "WTF? My freaking parents can't get jobs and I'm supposed to "plan" a "future"?"  What else have they got to do but hang out and have sex. Sex is the best fun you can have when you don't have no money. What is the Democratic Party going to say to them?

    If marriage equality is normalized, as seems to be happening,  then gay sexual expression itself (in its myriad of manifestations) becomes normal between people who want to do it.  Just another way to have sex, which humans do  tend to enjoy if given the chance, and no longer "deviant" or shameful.

    In a truly liberated world, one could have gay sex without considering one's self to be "gay" per se,  with all that follows from that.  I predict trending promiscuity.  

    Egads! This comment has rambled long enough...

    don't always believe what you think
