A lot of people wish to get acceptance for particular groups. However acceptance has more than if a group get vote, get married, hold a job. If the group has more rights does not mean society agrees with it in general. A lot of activist groups believe they can fix this with media. They believe putting a lot of stereotypical or shows that blantently focus on that topic will somehow make people accept it. People dont understand if you want things to be accepted by the majority you need to normalize it, not stigmatize it or tell everyone "We are special snowflakes". I really dont understand how adults and people in this time dont understand this concept. People believe you can force someone to agree with you by shoving something down thier throat repeatidly till they say "Okay I agree". In fact even putting a gun to someones head and saying "Agree" does not mean they AGREE, even if they say "I AGREE". Why is it so hard to understand for people that you cant force sociol change, and you cant force people to suddenly believe something since you get all rude and pissy about it. Normalizing a subject means to present it in a way, which reconizes the minority group but at the same neglects to highlight it. When you do this you are saying the subject is exactly the same as everything else. However a lot of people and I seen people taking psychology and medical class who dont understand this. They just get beligerant about the subject and say "How dare you dont agree you jerk!" I really dont understand why this concept is so difficult to grasp. Why do people believe they are the universe. There are other people here, we cant expect everyone to be exactly like us. We have to realize everyone thinks different and try to find a way to make several walks of life act peacefully with each other.
