"seek to impose their minority views on the majority"

Which is how most progressive change occurs.
There are ways to introduce changes to laws regarded as unfair or oppressive, that do not involve disruption to innocent peoples travelling schedules and plans, that do not create unnecessary cost to businesses, and that do not interfere with the smooth operation of large concerns such as the aviation industry.

However, there are always "social justice" groups who insist on indulging in the above tactics, to ensure their views gain wide exposure, with the final aim of ensuring that the laws of the society they live in, are re-adjusted to make great concessions, to accommodate the views of those of the permanently-offended set.
