How Much Has The Internet Helped The Gay Rights Movement?
I happened to think it's the most important tool we've ever had for our community. Without it, I think it would have taken another 20 years to get where we are now.
However the internet might have been used to promote the cause,the same internet has been used in the same way to defeat the cause.
The internet: can't live with it, can't live without it!
Showed society the enormous variety of sexuality.
Young people must know if they're gay and/or lesbian without question now thanks to the internet.
This might sound weird, but I think Internet porn has played a tremendous part in the loosening of attitudes about gay people. Even 'straight' porn sites have a gay section and any porn search one does will usually bring up some gay content. Since all of this can be viewed in complete privacy in the home, many many straight people have now viewed gay porn out of curiosity, something they never would have done otherwise. I think it's made gay people seem like less of "the other" in society.
