I'm sure this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I understand what he's saying. It's almost as if we've become so entitled that any tiny little thing will set off a chorus of people.
The bigger, consequential issues I understand making an issue over, but bitching about every little thing is only turning our allies against us. I've seen this trend on sites like reddit, where it's a clearly liberal, pro-gay crowd, voicing more and more opposition when we are constantly complaining about everything.
A good example is on this blog the post about Tyler the creator on the word faggot in lyrics has brought on a bunch of nasty comments using the n word. See http://instinctmagazine.com/post/tyler-creator-defends-faggot-lyrics-people-are-stuck-bubble. That's not helping us at all. In fact, it's disgusting.
