*does not read article*

Top 5:  California, Massachusetts, Washington, New York, Vermont
Bottom 10:  Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, West Virginia, Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Idaho

Let's see how I did.

*reads article*

Not bad.

Article didn't have rankings, really.

But still, the difference between Blue State Life and Red State Life is stark, particularly for gay people, but for everyone really.

Worst place to be gay? Probably Death Valley, or North Alaskan wilderness.

No, wait, there are bears up there

If it is not the Pacific Coast or New England, just don't be gay.  If it is, be however you want.
 
2017-08-27 01:42:23 AM  
Best places to be closeted: Rural Texas, and all of Alabama and South Carolina.

fusillade762: In the butt?


That is definitely the best and the worst place to be gay.

Albeit I prefer his butt, so not that much of a difference.

Fark this county. Land of the hate crime, home of the bigot. We even have a commander in chief bigot racist asshat running around in " orange face" making it all worse.

He never said he was gay.

I'm almost positive that the LGBT community would get a warm welcome in Mississippi and Alabama due to their Southern hospitality.

Well, that was mostly predictable.  Surprised by New Mexico and Colorado differing from the rest of the Midwest and South.

I'm sure certain parts of Colorado are accepting of it.

Other parts, the very opposite.

And then there's South Park....

Are you referring to regular bottoms or bossy bottoms?  Because I can see a couple of those bottoms being pretty damned bossy.
 
2017-08-27 04:21:48 AM  
If I'm a bossy bottom, it's just because I want  someone on pussy licking detail.  Don't worry.  I reciprocate.

Oh please tell me Missouri is on that list. We've lost all of our first place trophies such as meth production, s.a.t. scores and road repair. We need something to put us Back on top!
 
2017-08-27 05:24:00 AM  
Washington State surprised me. I thought we were pretty good, and we are, it compared to the rest of the nation. However, we don't have many of the specific laws other starts do, such as hate crimes and specific types of bathrooms. My naivete would like to believe that perhaps we just haven't needed such specific laws, but that's probably not right.

I've got this friend, see, oh nevermind. Let's just say I'm laughing.
 
2017-08-27 05:35:55 AM  
You're all wrong.  The absolute worst place to be gay is on the moon with no space suit or other protective environment.

Well, that goes for everyone else, too, but I stand by my point.

Ya, haven't you heard? It's illegal to be gay in Trump's America. I remember how they rounded up all the gays and placed them in the camps and isolated them from friends and family. Then electrocuted them until they stopped being gay and those that wouldn't stop being gay were killed.

Oh wait, no, that was all the BS fear mongering that was being spouted and when it never happened and people stopped believing it, because......oh wait, none of that happened....

No wait, now it's the blacks, he's doing it to the blacks now, 24/7 hate machine, white nationalist racist. He'll be rounding up the blacks and placing them in camps and isolating them from friends and family.....

Worst place to be gay would be the Playboy mansion or the locker room of the swedish bikini team or something like that.

I see someone has been reading up on so-called Gay Conversion Therapy. The "kill those that won't convert" isn't a part of the program...yet.  Not legally, anyway, although there are still several states that allow the "gay panic defense" to be used successfully in the trials of those who have murdered gay people, so I guess there's that.

I would guess that lesbians would not be terribly unhappy in such places. Women are gay too, y'know.

Seems like you can do rather well for yourself in gay hating groups if you're still in the closet or keeping it a secret.

...Until you're caught soliciting sex from men in an airport bathroom.

The I-25 corridor in New Mexico (Las Cruses, Albuquerque, Santa Fe) is very liberal and houses most of the population. Then there's Taos - a hot bed of liberalism. It's OK to be in New Mexico; we're very welcoming here and have a very diverse population. I wish we'd get to be more like CA and WA, but we're pretty good, especially when you consider your neighbors...

TFA isn't really about the everyday lives of gay people. It's about states that give specific legal protections to LGBT people.

New Mexico isn't one of the "good" states - but neither is Massachusetts.

Was at Laundromat on Filmore with everything but my shorts in the dryers. Sweetie comes in to collect her stuff, we get talking, she identified my Australian accent.
"Enjoying San Francisco?"
"You betcha!"
"You gay?"
"Nope, why do you ask?"
"Grab your stuff, come with me"

Took three days to get home. Ladie had quite a few lonely friends.

/ still grin like a manic when I see a Laundromat...

Hmmm.  So If I want to kill someone I say he or she is gay and I panicked?  Good to know.  Good to know.

Well, officer, I asked for her number but she replied that she was a lesbian.  Unsure of what to do, I panicked, grabbed the bar stool, and beat her until the convulsions stopped.  Do you have fire?  I need to be sure.
