Gay porn is fun and well all southern cities are why more liberal than the rural areas but they're the ones that elect the crazy fundy legislatures.

Krymson Tyde: Chattanooga has two gay bars. Well, one gay and one gay friendly.
I was on a date with my soon to be wife the only time I was ever hit on by a gay guy. It was at the gay friendly bar and was actually a couple hitting on me.


Heh, this was years ago when people rented or bought pron, a friend told me him and his boyfriend picked up a straight guy and took him home and sucked and farked him.

/I can work but in gay bars everyone understands straight people come in.

Yes.

Interesting. I'm still having difficulty believing in such a rapid change, among all Americans. I just can't understand it. Are people really that fickle?
Damn. I guess the newly-minted rich gay guys from the internet boom really did have the power.

Yes, they are.  Same-sex marriage, pot, wars, whatever.  If you get into polling, one thing that becomes clear is that people can turn on a dime.


Everything supports your opinion doesn't it?

I wish I cared about the south, but I don't. I am hoping we eventually give the deep south to Mexico. And all the gay congressmen will love the cantinas.

Charlie Crews' Zen Master: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: We got more blacks, more Mexicans, and more gays than our northern counterparts, but we're the ones that need to work on diversity. Right

When southern states work to repeal or undo civil voting rights, and when an entire continental region is known for its homophobic traits and hate crimes? Yeah. Yeah it does.

/Everywhere/ needs to work on improving diversity, gender, race, and sexual orientation tolerances. Some areas just have further to go than others.

If you're one of the many (including in the region) who don't consider someone less than (x) because of the color of their skin, the bits they were born with between their legs, or the gender of people they choose to sleep with, then props to you and keep up the good fight.


That's why every single black person in know that moved up north said the racism was worse there than here?

Black woman...completely gorgeous btw...from new york ..moved here. She said the exact same thing.

When? Granted I'm not much into bars anymore but I was there this last fall. Wow Papa and Boogies kid always seemed dumb though so not surprising. I'm guessing he still owned the place. His dads left him. We used to have upscale up on Golf road but the two lesbians that did that couldn't run a business. Oh well if you ever see a little bar open call Maggie's Place that would be mine and yeah thinking about it.

ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: Mississippi is number one?

Mississippi is finally number one in something!
 
2014-03-12 10:40:03 PM  

RickyWilliams'sBong: Back it up with data, Cletus.


Well, you can play with the GSS using Berkeley's SDA interface; filtering to Blacks via RACE and the most current YEAR (2012), running MARHOMO against HOMOSEX shows the fairly obvious truth that there were roughly one-quarter of blacks who both strongly disagree with legalization of gay marriage and who consider homosexuality always morally wrong.

Of course, that polling was largely before President Obama's position publically "evolved"; the GSS-2014 data should come out circa April 2015, and could be quite interesting.

If it makes you feel better, Mississippi is also the most religious state*, the most obese, and has the highest poverty rate**. In addition, of the 50 states and District of Columbia, Mississippi has the lowest Human Development Index (according to both the UN and American HDIs), and the lowest life expectancy.

*not counting US territories, which are even more religious than Mississippi
**DC has a higher poverty rate per household income, but is not technically a state

FunkOut: tlchwi02: ReapTheChaos: So basically it's a bunch of men watching lesbian porn, no real surprise there.

no, what they are saying is that they don't count lesbian porn as 'gay' porn because too many straight men watch lesbian porn and they don't collect enough data to differentiate how many watchers of lesbian porn are lesbian women and how many are straight men watching two chicks.

the real presumption is that straight men and women do not also watch gay male porn, which may or may not be correct.

Lot of straight women watch gay porn.


Hell, i have a gay male friend that watches straight porn.

There's a business in Berkeley called "SteamWorks,"
We were both wrong. It's a bathhouse. And considering all of the high-end cars parked around it any time of day, I'm guessing business is good.

Being from San Francisco and having spent a lot of my youth as a theatre tech I had a lot of exposure to gay people. When I moved to Roanoke, Va I kind expected everyone to be super backwards about the gays but I was mostly wrong. It seemed like whatever you did in private was A-ok or be as flaming gay as you wanted by yourself and nobody really cared. But people didn't want to see it in public. Hold hands with another man walking down the street and you might be asking for a beat down or at least a lot of hostile stares and nasty comments.

At one point they did a sweep of prostitutes along the main drag in town and of the 27 they picked up 17 were trannies or guys in drag.

Addendum: Mississippi also has America's highest teenage birth rate (71.9 per 1000 women 15-19), highest rate of infant mortality (10.3%), highest rate of child poverty (31.9%), and the highest overall rate of STDs in the US. Kinda puts the "most religious" title in perspective...

GRCooper: tlars699: YAOI- man on man porn usually made for women's enjoyment

Both are Gay porn. I didn't read the article, but something here tells me that there's a bunch of red-blooded heteros who are watching the opposite sex be gay for the titillation of the thought that they may one day be invited to such a gathering.

I know a lot of women who watch online porn, not a single one has mentioned watching man on man porn

I don't watch straight porn, so I can't do the comparison, but yes, the guys in straight porn sound stupid (most of the time "Yeah!" "fark" "fark yeah" ad infinitum). I watch it muted.

To be fair, quite a lot of that poverty is due to the delta. Even other Mississippians look at the delta as a third world country. Crushing poverty, zero tax base, no real economic opportunity. Poor people, tamales, and blues music, it's a strange and fascinating place.

Cyberluddite: In fairness, the South includes both New Orleans and Key West, so that's gonna skew the numbers up a little bit.  Plus it includes Texas, and we all know that steers can't use computers, so that really ups the numbers for that state.

 
It's a pedantic point in my family, but I have to mention, Key West was actually a Union stronghold (or at least Fort Jefferson) -- Key West is as 'out' a city as there can hope to be after San Francisco. Also Key West 'mock' seceded from the US back in the 80's. It's my impression they've done their best to not be associated with the traditional 'south' as best one city can...

All purely anecdotal of course (too lazy to cite tonight) but the gay citizenry of Key West has less likely a need for teh pr0n than your average closeted uptight southerner.

Doesn't much dispute the stats, but the local historians get pretty angsty about the distinction of being 'in the south' without being 'of the South'.

That's always puzzled me how seemingly accepted it is (on the internet and cable news anyway)for people to impart their "tolerance" on an entire region they have stereotyped as believing a certain way by hurling homophobic statements toward them.

Interesting double standard, yes? Sounds like being gay is accepted with a wink and a nod.
