the burden of acceptance is, generally speaking, the amount of energy you need to spend on not being a dick per day

back in the day people had a very low burden of acceptance because you could discriminate freely - nowadays the burden of acceptance in the us is much higher because of different groups becoming more culturally and politically powerful

trans people are the newest final straw, where people give up because it's too much of a burden to understand

righties call the burden of acceptance "PC culture": weirdoes making things that used to be perfectly fine into things that make you lose your job or lose your friends, AKA the "why should I have to"s

in MLK's letter from birmingham jail, the white moderates he was talking about were having a tough time with the burden of acceptance - a lot of the young wingies that are being indoctrinated nowadays initially fell into it partly because of the burden of acceptance
