As a married gay man who grew up in the Bible Belt and dealt with things you probably can't imagine, you know what I'm tired of? People shitting on others who used to oppose us but eventually came around to support equality.
That is exactly what we wanted to happen. The goal was to change people's minds so we were treated equally and had the same rights. It was not play the perpetual victim and hold it over the head of any ally who once held an ignorant belief or occasionally misspeaks. It was not to create a 21st century equivalent to a scarlet letter so we could follow people around who are now on our side whenever they disagree with us and scream, "Bigot!", as if that suddenly ends the conversation or discounts their points.
