Senior here.Recently, I made the discovery that younger generations seem more accepting of me. I used to associate with only members of my own age group. Seems many in my own age group, have intolerance of others with different lifestyles. Perhaps, these older straight friends are really not friends but acquaintances. I always thought as one grows older, one will experience maturity within one's age group. I have learned to be selective of who you associate with. Instead of loving acceptance, many straight older people retain bigotry from 50 years ago. If the conversation is solely about grandchildren, subliminal rejection is happening. I rate acceptance by talking about recent Supreme Court cases about GLBT rights. Friendships now have meaningful conversations. Working to discover the wisdom of my GLBT community. Coming Out also means leaving people who are judgemental as a daily activity to deny the legitimate rights of others.
