This whole thing with the mutants is getting to be a little bit stale, no matter what. Look, it makes no sense that they would continue to be in a world that held this much prejudice openly for this long. And they know it too. Hence the need to have some huge big mutant scare that would get all the people back on the side of hate, and give Cyclops and the X-Men an excuse to be hated and persecuted again. Marvel really needs to do us all a favor and move on. The X-Men could be so much more then a continues re-hash of the same "bigotry is bad" message. We get it, it's bad. I'm not saying the real world still doesn't have these issues, we clearly do, but I am saying that in the context of the comic world, it is time to move forward instead of continuing to go backwards to the same key plot points over and over. Just wait, eventually Bendis will make Magneto whole sale evil again too (I kid, but honestly it wouldn't shock me), maybe Emma will go back to being the White Queen (and not this tame, "I'm a good guy version either, or her Gen X incarnation, no I mean straight up Hellfire Club awesomness).
I think your missing the point here. If it was only a matter of non-mutants calling mutants ignorant names and being bigoted that would be one thing, but they live in a world in which humans use institutional power to subordinate, annihilate, enslave and ghettoize mutants. This is going far beyond bigotry and has more to do with apartheid and genocide. You cannot expect mutant kind to just "move on" in a world where this normally happens and not do anything to put themselves in a position where humanity cannot put them under their thumb. If humanity wants to whine about being afraid of mutants or not liking the change in the world that's going to come with their existence that's one thing, but mutants are not obligated to sacrifice their freedom and well being to accommodate humanity's fears and anxieties, or to even care about them for that matter.
