This.
A thousand times this.

A more welcoming world keeps people from being closeted.
Which in turn keeps them from pretending to be someone they're not, and doing something foolish like....oh I don't know, lying to someone they've made a life-long commitment to and blowing up that family dynamic emotionally as well as financially.

Defending the status quo hurts people.

I'm repeating it again, just because it's so important.
