    or is it my imagination?

    I can't believe people attack others on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity and sexual orientation. More incidents here than when I lived in Eugene and Portland Oregon.

    Not surprised.

    The ones in rural areas are usually the most Ignorant.




    But how you can live there, idk. I'd kill myself if I was in a rural area.

    I moved here for a specific reason. It had nothing to do with how open and tolerant the place is.

    People are not "hateful" just because they don't think you're homosexuality is awesome.

    Hate and discrimination are the glue that holds the Republican Party together.

    No, it’s not your imagination.

    Unfortunately fear, hate, and ignorance are common in the human condition. The Framers knew this and hence the Bill of Rights and the 14th Amendment were drafted.

    And the situation will likely get worse before it gets better, as local jurisdictions are prevented from violating homosexuals’ civil rights, a backlash will develop. We see the elements of that in this very forum, in this very thread.
