    Hmm, it seems they stacked the deck against the US.
    Most countries were assigned a rating based on legal protection alone
    But it seems they gave the US a "C" rating due to what they perceive people's level of acceptance to be, based on some anecdotal data

    I can't imagine they have much insight into public attitudes about homosexuals in Uruguay, one of their "poster boy"nations
    Or even New Zealand, for that matter
    Sounds like that old saying about familiarity breeding contempt is true

    Fact is, it's the US's high level of legal protection that allows them to complain about it
    And it's the US's high level of acceptance that gets their whining reported as a news story
