Aren't you the same guy who tried desperately (and failed) to prove that Texas isn't culturally Southern?
Actually, it has been proven on many different threads about the diversity and culture of Houston. The OP is just a little overzealous about it

Actually I am from Austin and found that the problem lies with Texans, not anybody else. I moved to college thinking TX was normal, now I realize how backwards it is, and it seems like a lot of people there have psychological issues.

Guess you can't read...moving on...

I'm not saying Houston isn't diverse because it is, but there are places larger and smaller that are both more diverse and cosmopolitan (of course, both terms depend on how one defines them). Not bashing, just stating the truth.

No one's trying to downplay Houston at all. I'm just sick of this little boy's ignorant threads.

I don't know, I am from New York, born and raised and I find Texas (at least Houston and Coll Station where I went to school) to be just as cosmopolitan, cultured and diverse as anywhere else. If you go to small isolated places here you will find some of that "backwardness" that you speak of,(just like in any state) but not in large cities or places with high ranking universities

Of course L.A. is more diverse and cosmo than Atlanta. The only place in the country that can compare to L.A. is the NYC metro.

As far as Houston goes, that's debatable.

And txguy, I saw your other thread about the "ignorance" of the Midwest. I'd expect nothing less of you, but let me just say this--nothing can be more ignorant than your pointing out the flaws of one area, while simultaneously suppressing the flaws of your own and embellishing its strengths, as if we're too stupid to figure it out ourselves and buy everything you say anyway. You've got way too much time on your hands, kid.

You lose all credibility right here.
