This is a fine and heartfelt piece. As best I can recall, I was always pretty tolerant, perhaps because I grew up feeling like an outsider myself for various reasons.
It would be nice if people could be tolerant of other views of how to live life, whether they concern sexuality or religion or just how to spend one's leisure time, without having to meet and be impressed by people who hold them in person, but at least that approach works sometimes.
My view is that people who spend their time worrying about the hobbies / lifestyle choices of others are wasting their time and, often, avoiding dealing with their own issues.
