Not all the people accept those things. I guess is the same in most countries in Europe.
Spain is probably the most LGBT friendly country out there.

I think the Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, NZ, Germany etc. are all up there.

If you talk about LGBT issues, "Communist" China is more "tolerant" than South Korea, not to mention India. Vietnam is quite socially liberal too.

Tibet is in China, no matter you like it or not.

There is actually some truth to this. China is indeed more LGBT-friendly than Korea, and the difference isn't marginal.

LOL

The most tolerant countries I have experienced were Western Countries. Especially the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Germany, etc.

Japan and India liberal? lmao

Being liberal does not necessairly mean that people like you to do everything. Usually people in Spain etc. do not care if you are gay or not, but are disgusted to see people kissing in public. Hell that is called manner, not being anti liberal.

South Korea for example, homosexuality is legal and there are some gay communities in Seoul and Busan, but still many older people do not like it. It is not like someone would actively stop you from doing anything but people just do not like to see it.

India had several cases of women being raped and killed because they were women, until quite recently.

How do you measure "tolerancy"? The killing of 6 million jews by the "tolerant" Germans, the british empire,the xenophobia against eastern europe, the Islamophobia, the extermination "euthanasia" of horses for food, dogs and other animals, the daily terrorism in Paris and London?

Western europe and the anglosphere are only tolerant to gays, but homosexualism isn't everything you know.

And you think Asians are more tolerant racially? Where did you even get this idea? Asians are far more racist and xenophobic than any country in Europe. SE Asians are treated like slaves and are often subjected to extremely inhuman working conditions and human trafficking, for one.

It seems like you're just bitter from your bad experience in Western Europe.

this thread should have instead been titled "the most gay friendly country around the world"

"liberal" and "tolerance", at least here in the US, is an oxymoron worthy of laughter

Korea and Japan disliking each other doesn't make them racist, xenophobic, neonazis.

All neighboring countries hate each other for historic reasons. Even your favorite scandinavian ones have feuds, Spain-Italy has one, the Balkans...
You can't judge country by its relations with neighboors.

Spain is the world's most LGBT-friendly country -> 2015



Spaniards believe that homosexuality is ‘morally acceptable’ more than any other nation, poll finds

Spain Legalizes Gay Marriage; Law Is Among the Most Liberal -> back to 2005


I don't know which countries are exactly the most tolerant. Besides, I can ensure that Netherlands and Spain are both in the top 5...
