I forgot to note one thing that stuck out to me:

Podcast
I was listening to episode 40 of My Favorite Murder and they talked about that infamous Jenny Jones episode where a man was murdered for admitting he had a thing for a man back in Texas on that talk show. I remember growing up to this news and it was more interesting when they mentioned that this happened back in '95 I forget that this was little more than 20 years ago and yet it was still considered all right for people glorify homophobia. When things like this still seem so not that long ago, it's no wonder people think the country is changing for the worst for them when they think they're still living a time that doesn't look that different from those times.

I have to admit, a lot of progressive issues have come to a head as a result, and the fact that Caitlyn Jenner is a thing (a terrible, terrible, thing that in a way I'm glad has the same daddy issues as log cabin Repubs have with the GOP) says how much times have changed. Hell, another ten years back and interracial relationships weren't exactly embraced, either.

What times we live in, huh?
