'For activists on the left, the news is a “social crisis.”
A new survey commissioned by a gay advocacy group found that acceptance of the homosexual and transgender lifestyle is actually down among younger Americans compared to older generations, according to the New York Post.
But considering how truly radical the movements for alternative sexuality have become, it might just be a return to common sense.
The Accelerating Acceptance 2019 survey, by Harris Poll on behalf of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, found that fewer Americans aged 18 to 34 reported being comfortable with “LGBTQ” individuals in certain situations – such as the workplace, at worship or learning that a family member is gay, lesbian, transgender or whatever piece of the “gender non-conforming” puzzle is popular on any given day.
The results were similar to those of the same survey last year, with both showing significant drops from a survey that measured attitudes in 2016.
As NBC News reported:
“In 2016, 24 percent of respondents age 18-34 said they would feel uncomfortable with an LGBTQ family member; by 2018 that rose to 36 percent — about one in three. A similar rise was measured among the youngest group of respondents who say they would feel uncomfortable to learn their child was receiving an LGBTQ history lesson at school, from 27 percent to 39 percent.”
Of particular note: According to the survey, the sharpest decline in comfort with alternative sexualities was found among young women.
To pollsters, the developments are stunning.
“We count on the narrative that young people are more progressive and tolerant,” The Harris Poll CEO John Gerzema told USA Today.'
