Truth be told society is less misogynist, sexist, racist and homophobic now than it ever was! If you compare today to the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s without a doubt there has been progress.
We have women and minorities who are executives of Fortune 500 companies, the Supreme Court has struck down laws that once forbid interracial marriage and same sex marriage. The president of the U.S. is a minority and there is a chance the next president may be a woman. The CEOs of General Motors, Xerox, IBM, Oracle, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Yahoo, and PepsiCo are women.
The 19th amendment granting women the right to vote was in 1920. Clearly no one could argue there has not been advancement.
Just about every hit TV show features a gay or lesbian couple as part of it's cast: Grey's Anatomy, Empire, Modern Family, Scandal, and so on. Sean Penn won an Oscar for portraying a gay man.
Caitlyn Jenner was featured on the cover Vanity Fair.
Openly gay and lesbian people are being allowed into the military.
Personally speaking I can't imagine any other era where it was this accepting to be whomever you are with laws forbidding discrimination.
Having said that there will never be a time where everyone accepts everyone! We still have wars over religious ideology in various countries! That has been going on for thousands of years.
However no one can deny society is less misogynist, sexist, racist and homophobic. Those people who feel there has been no progress either lack a historical perspective for comparison or they have unrealistic expectations. Progress happens slowly.
Each new generation is more socially tolerant and accepting than the previous. Nevertheless there will always be those who hate others.
