I imagine you want praise for gradually moving down the spectrum from "Complete and Utter Bigot" to "Somewhat Intolerant." Maybe a nice pat on the back or someone to say, "Congratulations on your trek to fully evolved human being! You are doing the right thing!" Perhaps a participatory ribbon that says "Not a Complete Asshole...Anymore." You want acknowledgment of your journey toward enlightenment, and I know there are people out there who will kindly and patiently give you such.
But let us be clear: that person is not me. It will never be me.
It is not my job to praise you for doing the absolute minimum when it comes to not being a conservative dick. It is not my duty to measure your painfully slow progress and give you a cookie at each teeny benchmark. I have no time for your fragile ego; my time is too busy spent fighting tooth and nail for those basic human rights that you can't seem to accept.
