You're willing to live with it.
Wrong. If I feel a society is wrong and their judgement is harming a segment of society, I do something about it. I have been extremely active in the gay rights community.
What I did come to realize is that you can't change peoples opinions but you can change the laws. It's perfectly legal to have hairy legs. Opinions change overtime naturally and its outside your control. You can be one of the people that stands up for what you believe and bear the brunt, or you can 'give in' to get along. What you can't expect is that you have some inalienable right to be treated how you want to be treated.
Everyone else wants to knock down the social consequences, set them on fire, build a machine to burn the ashes, build a machine to burn that machine, and launch what's left into the sun
Brave, but empty, words. You subscribe to lots of social behaviors others would find abhorrent. There is not a single human society that doesnt have rigid codes of conduct, social norms, and behaviors. (Try being a "Gutter Punk" with a job who wears a suit)
You don't get credit for wanting Utopia, especially when your ruining it for everyone who doesnt' share your 'opinion' of what Utopia entails.
