    That was funny ;)

    But I wonder... Granted the things portrayed actually happened, given that the editors can be selective, could there have been reactions they did NOT show us?

    Thoughts, Josh?

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Why would they want to show those states in a positive light? Maybe they're trying to make deep-southerners think "hey, in the south it's alright for guys to love each other." Having been raised in the south, so much of what we "believe in" comes from media and what people would assume is the southern way of doing things. Or maybe that's just me.

    Also, what about the cameras? No one wants to be an ass on camera, right?

    Either way, the scenes they showed did feel pretty good to watch. It's nice to see that people at least have the decency not to disrespect others in public.

    I've done similar for years and the only place that I've run into intolerance was .......

    Depends on where you are in the South, the cities, no matter how conservative probably don't give a crap about rather or not you are gay or straight.

    It's pretty much common knowledge that there are areas that you should not be in you aren't white, straight and christian, and those areas are way out in the sticks where most people wouldn't want to be, anyway.

    Thanks for visiting my profile.

    And true, we never did something like this in Alabama or Mississippi, but we sure have out in the sticks in I-da-HO, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. And also true, I've gotten in a couple bar fights in my life, but it had nothing to do with queerness issues. It was for looking at and / or flirting with their women, strangely enough.

    I've had some silly queerosity questions, but no harm meant in them ... just a lack of understanding.

    When one pushes as many buttons as I have in my life, I'm very lucky to even be alive.

    One thing though, I hate to be called gay. I much prefer fag, queer or homo!

    And I died laughing at this one! HAHA!

    The simple truth of the matter though is that most people are only brave enough to voice their hatred behind a keyboard, in their churches with like minded people or in their homes. This shows that people tolerated it. It doesn't mean they were all in favor of it. There is a big difference.

    That's something I didn't even really consider bmw0! Tolerating it does not mean in favor.

    However, that one guy was ecstatic when they were holding hands which was pretty cool. I'll at least say he was in favor of it icon_biggrin.gif

    Odd, nothing happened to me when I was walking down the street home wearing my rainbow belt in the South; though one cute blond in a red corvette yelled, "Go home faggot!" to me before I even outed myself... icon_confused.gif

    It does seem ridiculous since I saw this segment on the original live broadcast here in Canada on CTV which is basic cable.
    BTW, it was great fun to watch.

    We tolerate a lot of things in life that we're not in favour of.

    I was walking home from work; he was driving by in his car. Too long ago to care. It was only annoying.

    Your arms looked so good, I wanted a closer look icon_biggrin.gif

    The sticks out in the mountains/rockies are a little different than the ones in the south, there's a big libertarian streak across the rockies and a lot of folks really mind their own business.

    LOL ain't that the truth. As a gay conservative, I'm much more uncomfortable about being a conservative among my gay friends than I am about being gay among my conservative friends.

    My conservative friends shrug about my sexuality and say OK.

    My gay friends (mostly) take my conservatism personally or with those telling arched eyebrows.

    Whenever a statement starts with "it's common knowledge that..." you can be pretty sure that whatever follows is utter bullshit.
