Honestly, I heard the same refrain from my fellow mid/late Gen-Xers because somehow we somehow forgot how incredibly racist and homophobic our peers were in highschool, I guess?
"But things are so much better now!"
Yes, but... if I go pick a gamer stream at random, what would you say the odds of me hearing a homophobic slur in the first five minutes? Those dudes? They're be voting conservative when they're 50.
Yeah, folks do sometimes get better, I do know people who recovered from being complete shits in their 20s, but it's so rare as to be nearly singular.
