Have you ever been to those Asian cities? There are tons of tourists from all over the world. I see how you would think that if you live in the US. Most Americans go to South America or Europe for vacation because they are closer.

One must be completely nuts to pick here over the Netherlands but to each their own.

Japan is great, though it wouldn't be as nice for gays and women.

I would rather be gay in Tokyo than in any large-ish city in the Netherlands right now.
Islam has dethroned Amsterdam as the gay capital of the world.

With all due respect but i think a person that lives a 1 hour drive from Amsterdam knows better than a person on the other side of the world.
There have been multiple attacks on gay people (especially at night) in the Randstad this year, one even got his face smashed in with a bolt cutter.

That's because gay people can't really do PDA in Asia, if they did they could be attacked as well. At least verbally.

Sorry but you just won't understand what it is like to live in societies that are very oppressive to the LGBTQ community because a) you are straight, and b) the Netherlands is very LGBT friendly.

Yes, Shanghai is strangely low in this rank.
