"'Live and let Live' works _BOTH_ ways, ya know."

No, actually it doesn't. If you have one side calling for tolerance of diversity and another calling for conformity to their idea of normality then it is the latter that has a problem, not the former. Races in a minority did not have to just live and let live with racially offensive words, for example. Rightly, they objected and attitudes changed. The same logic applies to gender and sexuality. If you don't recognize the right of every individual to be who they truly are then it is you that is not following "live and let live".
