Opinions lead to public policy. It's really that simple and it shouldn't be difficult to understand. You are entitled to your opinion up until the point where you lobby to violate individual sovereignty.

Secondly, widespread negative opinions regarding homosexuality and/or other subsets of individuals leads to dehumanization, which is conducive to ostracism, bullying, and even violence.

You equate this with gay individuals but I've always experienced this more with straight individuals. Have you ever talked about experiences you've had with women in the presence of somebody who might be gay? Have you ever witnessed other straight individuals who have done the same?
