Social influences never stop, some people are effectively changing them. Influencing your children, or society influencing children, or school systems, or teachers etc. influencing children is not going to stop, it is impossible and against nature. What we see as preferable, acceptable, accepted, etc. is in part shaped by these influencers. If we can all accept this, we can then have real conversation about the essence of this thread, but unfortunately this is hard to achieve these days.
