Just because a southerner may disagree with you doesn't mean they won't be friendly or at least respectful about it to your face.

Now, later when they put their robes and hoods on, all bets are off.

Most of those are pretty gay friendly cities. Major metro areas in the south are much more gay friendly than state goverment. Case in point Key West---which is on the list.

Jackson Hole?  It's practically Disneyland on the Tetons.

Youse want friendly?  Go to Le Mela in NYC.

Make sure everyone eats veal.  It was one order per table when I went there last.

New Orleans as well, any city that hosts Southern Decadence had to be pretty open minded towards gay folks.

There's also a city in CO on the list, so at least one with legal weed.

I've noticed that Southerners are always genteel and have a way of phrasing insults that most people don't catch.

Don't forget Southern 'Honor' which is a way of looking to fight someone after being insulted in a way that that wasn't meant to insult.

Wilmington, Delaware is the ninth least friendly city?  Says who?  Who came up with this stupid farking list.  I'm so angry at shiat like this, I swear, if I had a shotgun I'd shoot someone in the face with it.

What's the use of having a grudge if you can't hang on to it, right?

Sure, you gotta be friendly when any person you meet might shoot you for being rude.

Add 'overrated food', 'a giant chip on their shoulder', and 'impossible to understand the accents' and you've got a winning headline.

Asheville is by far the friendliest. Number 10 is pretty low for that place.  And yes, they are VERY gay, anti-war, minority, and marijuana friendly.  Hell, all of the the "enlightened" states could learn a thing or two from Asheville.

My ex girlfriend became a crack addict about a year after moving to Asheville, so add crack-friendly.

Bless your heart, you must be touched in the head. Now, here's a lovely pineapple what's your hurry hope you visit again real soon.

(See, the problem with your assumption is that most of the areas on that list are "liberal areas," often in the middle of a "conservative area." See: New Orleans, LA; Jackson Hole, WY, Key West, FL, and Asheville, NC.)

In these surveys, "friendly" equates to the amount of my time employees waste small talking with you and other customers.  Yeah, I don't want to talk about the weather or anything else with yout, just get me my sandwich.

Well, at least Fort Worth is listed, and not tied in with Dallas. I'm surprised Dallas didn't make the least-friendly list.

Minority: check. (Three different ones, even.)
Queer: check.
Anti-war: double check.
Pro-legalization: eh, check.
Atheist: well, agnostic, but check.
Gun control: check.


No wonder I'm not comfortable anywhere south of DC that isn't New Orleans. Actually, I'm perfectly comfortable, but the folk nearby always seem distinctly UNcomfortable, even if all I'm doing is standing around eating an ice cream cone. (Yes, this exact thing happened in Georgia.)

As a southerner I've never actually heard the "bless your heart" thing in real life. Maybe it's a Texas thing, and to be honest Texas is Texas and not really "southern." We're very friendly to strangers because it's the right thing to do. When you start being impolite by letting your political stances be known without being asked is when you will start running into unpleasantness.
