As a teacher with 18+ years of experience, I've seen a change in the views of young people. My campus has become known as the gay-friendly campus, we have several teachers who are out, and a very strong GSA club. I have quite a few students who are out, and I don't see them treated poorly. I did get after a student today for calling another student a gay slur (the other student was not gay), but when they say it they're not really thinking about the real meaning behind the word - unfortunately, it's being used the same way that people have used "********" to show something being bad or wrong. It just hasn't occurred to him that it would be hurtful to his friends who may happen to be gay.
I just find that those that are against probably have never spent any time around a gay couple to see how truly in love they are. They are the same person as you and i but just choose differently who they love and have sex with.
