I find this thread flat out insulting to anyone from California.

If anyone compared where I was from to Texas, I would be steaming.

People from Cali don't seem to care.

Actually, they do. You should reread the thread.

A good portion of the negative comments(including yours) are from non-Californians and non-Texans.

Acutally, they are not. I have friends who are from Cali and that currently live in SF. I never met one who had anything good to say about Texas.

They don't have any true cities.

That's just a rediculous and ignorant thought then. To say they don't have any true cities shows they don't know what they are talking about. Have you been there? If not, how are you judging them if you know nothing about them?

I thought being Catholic would make them a little more socially conservative.
Nope. Look at the many cities out there now that are easily Catholic but are very liberal. They tend to be a bit more open compared to protestants.

Yes, I have been there.

I have lived in Dallas. Also, I have visited Houston, Austin and San Antonio.

I enjoy truly dense cities, extremely urban, walkable, and easily livable without a car. The list above is something that Texas cities do not offer.

Understandable but that does not mean they are not cities.

I enjoy dense cities which are extremely urban and easily livable (though Texas fits the easily livable part though as well). But I still have an open mind about what these cities can offer and I also am excited about the change that is going on in these cities.

It means that the cultures between two completely different areas of the United States is almost like living in a completely seperate country. Texas is nothing like Cali.

NJ is nothing like Cali. Florida is nothing like Minnesota and the list goes on.
