The first out lesbian I ever met was from Montana. Even flyover states aren't completely homogeneous.

So not being bigoted morons is noteworthy? What great progress we've made

Or maybe stereotypes are simplistic. At best.

I get the feeling that if you live in Montana it's probably because the idea of not having everyone up in your personal life appeals to you. Which is a kind of Republican ideology apart from the social conservative wing. I wish we had more of the former and fewer of the latter.

Well it does help to be a hot lesbian rather than the ugly bull dyke kind.

Didn't Montana vote for Clinton once? I haven't been there but it was always my impression that the mountain states out west were fiscally conservative, socially libertarian.

/Except for Utah

What a coincidence, that looks a lot like my happy place, too.

Yeah, I'd say she's hot for Fark....

I've flown TO Billings before. Don't you think it's a bit offensive and elitist to call it "flyover" country? (Me da dolor de cabeza)

If the urban population could get on board, I'd agree with you.

I think you miss the point. FTFA: "I never felt so accepted, and so helped."  This given she was now in Billings and not Seattle.

I have lived in Seattle, and it used to be a great place before all the Californians moved up there. Just like Portland... and I will tell you what, it is the upitty, pretentious, hippy dippy, seattilite/portlandia, starbucks sucking libtards who are the most bigoted and closed minded people I have ever farkin met. Sixteen years in the military and I never encountered racism like in Seattle or Portland.

So of course she was surprised to be welcomed into that Billings community with open arms, now what I can't figure out is why she wants to enact the anti-discrimination ordinances after suffering no discrimination what-so-ever.  Is she afraid more people are going to move to Billings from Seattle and ruin Montanna too?

"If they can't rent an apartment, they can buy a house," Kenat wrote. "If they can't get a job, they can start their own business. If they get denied by a business for services, they can find a competitor who will serve them. That's freedom and being held responsible for your choices."

Well you can't win them all.

Ever since Brokeback Mountain, everyone wants to get into the rustic, gay scene.
 
2014-04-06 07:37:40 PM  
As long as she doesn't get all uppity and try and have the same marriage rights as straight people, they'll be fine with her. Otherwise they'll teach her what her place is.
 
2014-04-06 07:38:46 PM  
In my experience, the more crowed the state, the more likely you are to run into a-holes.
 
2014-04-06 07:39:01 PM  
Stay out of my slice of heaven in flyover country.

I hope you post a followup, ma'am, after you propose to your girlfriend and let us know how your in-state marriage goes.

Everybody likes hot lesbians.  Not really a watershed moment.

There's nothing elitist about municipal rubes.

Which is doubly ironic because to get gay men who dress like cowboys and want to cuddle, you have to go to the cities.

Montana tends to have NW values and is fairly progressive. I don't think she'd have had such a positive experience in Bumfark, Mississippi,

No, it's homosexuals they don't know that they have a problem with.  Same with minorities.  It's always the other ones.  You know, the ones on the news.
 
2014-04-06 07:44:35 PM  
So the article is about how she is pushing an ordinance for non-discrimination based on sexual orientation?  If she is so welcome, why is the ordinance needed?

I respectfully suggest that she is not the most articulate of lesbians ever, and that the reporter is not the most accurate of reporters ever, either.

Put another way: her quotes in the article are likely inaccurate, contradictory, cherry-picked, or some combination thereof.

Depends on how you interpret that.  I choose to interpret it as two gay guys, still closeted, and their beards are kissing.

FTFA

"How is it that such a small group of people be granted special privileges over and above the rights and privileges afforded all of us by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights? I find it repulsive that any group of people who practices perversion and moral indecency be afforded any special privileges, let alone those that would put your children or my grandchildren at risk, are even considered."

Yup, smitty, its a paradise of freedom.

I think these people need to watch some Louis CK

To be fair, it's the billings gazette, it's pretty much just a local paper.  "Cat rescued from tree" probably counts for front-page news on most days.

"If they don't like who I am, they don't need to be part of my life."

Douglas is one of dozens of residents who have lobbied the Billings City Council on an issue it has yet to take up - a proposed non-discrimination ordinance that's scheduled for consideration this summer following the council's budget deliberations.


Sounded like a healthy attitude up until the part where she is pushing for a law to ensure 'they' aren't allowed the same freedom of choice to be or not to be a part of her life without the threat of legal ramifications.

/Whatever

As long as Billings has assholes like this wandering around loose, then yeah, it seems like a non-discrimination ordinance would be a good thing to have as an ace in the hole.  Every statement he makes dribbles with complete idiocy, as if you squeezed Rush Limbaugh's ass-pustules and this guy arose from it.

They do exist, but a larger problem may be the fact that there are so many white people in Portland that it just seems racist.

Hell, Portlanders don't hold a candle to the bigotry of the east side of the state toward Portland (or anyone from the valley).

This just in. Nobody gives a shiat.

Contrast that with the liberals are Mozilla who couldn't work for a boss that gave money to an anti-gay marriage law. Once again you see who the thin-skinned babies are.

There were two lesbians who had the only stationery store for quite a long time in Gardnerville, Nevada. Everyone knew they were "great and good friends" as the saying used to be. They had plenty of business, nobody hassled them, and that was that. One of the City commissioners was openly gay, and again, everyone knew it, he was never harassed AFAIK, and lived quite a normal life. He even hosted the annual pancake breakfast fundraiser for the volunteer fire department for many years and it was attended by the entire town.

You can't assume that just because a town is small and filled with white people that they automatically discriminate against teh homogheys.

We had a biracial couple too. He was the police lieutenant.
