The signs have always been there.

Anyway, on topic: I think my earlier post may have come across harsher than I intended. The subject is very close to my heart. My opinion on the matter is that I know that not everyone will be able to accept homosexuals as equals. But all I ask is that they let us get on with our lives in peace. It's people who don't, people who feel compelled to hurl abuse, to block political movements that have no impact on them.
And no-one chooses to be gay. Afterall, who would want to go through the emotional trauma it causes? Stuff that society has a huge emphasis on. That every show and film as a kid tells you to aspire towards. Things that you know you can't do. You know that you'll never be able to get married and father a child. Knowing that your parents can never be the grandparents they've dreamed of. Knowing that finding the right person is going to be so much harder than for regular people. The chances of finding a compatible person in the 1.5%* of the population that are gay and of the same gender are so improbably remote, that it's enough to make anyone depressed. And on top of all that, there's the fear of how people will react when they discover the truth about a persons sexuality. And then there are the countries where being gay can lead to the death sentence.
Homosexuals have enough on their plates without homophobic abuse.
*Based on 9 million gay US population out of 309 million, half of which will be male. Maybe. Wolfram Alpha is cool.
