“It is interesting that the common thing everyone agrees with is that this sort of behavior is a learned trait, that something needs to be done about it, and that adults are the ones responsible for teaching our children appropriate behavior, but every adult in here has set a bad example by getting sucked into a consistent argument that, sadly, sets precedence. Kids learn what they live folks. And we teach them every day that it is ok to be disrespectful, so long as you disagree with someone else's views, or someone else's religious preferences, or someone else's socio-economic status. Things have changed. Wanna know why? Because 50 years ago people actually CARED what their community thought of them. SO they held their tongue a bit more. They may have thought something rude, but they kept it to themselves because they didn't want to look bad. It's called social grooming, and we have very little of that happening. Look at almost every post in this thread. How many of you state your opinions in front of your children? Do you do it in a way that would make them think they still need to respect the opposing view, or the individual? If you do, Kudos. You're a minority. Like I said, kids learn what they live. That includes everything they're exposed to, especially from parents. So maybe instead of fighting about it all on the internet, we ought to learn something from this, reflect, and apply???”
