within anarchists and radical political circles, people have expressed opinions that are suspicious of the terms "tolerance" and "acceptance" for previously more openly-hated identities (like "gay" and "black"). One example that comes to mind in light of gay marriage legalization is the queer anarchist distaste for gay marriage, since it leads to a state-sanctioning of homosexuality within a competitive, hostile, and authoritarian economic system.
However, the civil rights movement resulted in less open hatred and violence towards black people, even if the state and several institutions still beat, imprison, and enslave them. Even if being merely "tolerated" under a system that uses violence and competition leads to a more "diversified" alienation, the promotion of civil rights does have benefits for the more disadvantaged groups.
Are civil rights and tolerance/acceptance something to be desired?
