Homophobia has no future

This graph from this Sullivan post (he recently moved to theatlantic.com) illustrates it pretty clearly:

Note that if you look at the dates in the first graph, the trend of acceptance appears to be accelerating: from '82 to '92 acceptance only increased 4%, while from '97 to '06 (a shorter time period), it increased 12%. As Sullivan points out, basing your political strategy on homophobia (as Rove and other Republicans have done) seems like a good way to plant the seeds of the destruction of your movement. Let us hope it comes soon.

I think you got your posts mixed up. Republicans are the fossils.
