In the year you were born I was 26 years of age. 1992.

When I was your age, the notion of gays being allowed to marry anywhere was as far fetched as the sun rising in the west and setting in the east.

In 1992 Gays could not Marry in Canada, Nor anywhere for that matter.

In many states of the USA there were sodomy laws, you could be arrested for having sex with a man.

2003 the Federal Government Struck down Sodomy laws: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodomy_laws...ted_States

October 1998 Mathew Shepherd was beaten and hung on a fence to die.... This spurred Hate Crime Legislation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Shepard aimed at protecting the gay.

Just this year (2011) 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' was repealed, it was set in motion a year after you were born, prior to that there was a strict - No Gay in military policy where they could ask and you had to tell. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_ask,_don%27t_tell

Parts of this world are indeed a lot more accepting - well on paper. And there is continual change. While Russia is daring to make 'gay propaganda' illegal, other parts of the world are fighting and winning such things as 'gay marriage'.

Most of this positive change has taken place in your lifetime.

For some of the world the changes are positive, and do expect to find your lifetime seeing gay marriage across the USA and most of the 'free' world. Expect to see the rest of the world under political pressure to accept gays.

I dont think TEENS are ACCEPTING yet cus they are still bashing and beating down gays for no apparent reason. Teens still dont understand nor do they want to understand the situation. but I agree ith everything that boyn said though. just anted to add my piece on teens.

its becoming more accepted as time goes on. gay marriage is being legalized and its just becoming a "normal' thing. if you can call anything in this world normal.

Teens live in their own world.

For example, they'll pick on a fat kid, just because he's fat. But there have been fat kids since the beginning of time. So teens are a bad barometer of social progress.

Times are as good as they have ever been for gays (unless you count Greek times, but I'm not sure...)

Supposedly things are getting more accepting, but we're nowhere where we should be.
I mean I remember what happened when Ellen Degeneres came out and the hostile response that she got and now she's one of Americas favorite comediennes (though she doesn't talk about her sexuality much)
I sometimes wonder if gay rights organizations are focusing too much on marriage and the military while gay teens are killing themselves. But maybe focusing on these things has led to progress. We have a long way to go.

I wonder if Britain is more accepting. I really want to know that since I've always felt more comfortable and at home in that country.

I certainly think Britain is a more tolerant country. Also good manners means much is left unsaid. The traditional means of dealing with a difficult issue in Britain is to fudge it.

surprise! they found out they have difficulties loving all of gods creatures under their rainbow.

just due to bad parenting, limited options, gay men tend to be self limiting.

I think times are getting better. Not great, just better.
