For some reason Bend is like many other cities. Two Mom's is OK, but two Dad's are not so cool. Go figure.

Summit - when are you planning on making the move, my wife and I are hopefully about a year away from ours and these forums have been pretty helpful in figuring a few parts of the process out. Good luck with the impending move!!!

You might experience a few subtle problems, especially in the outlying areas of Central Oregon like Prineville.

There's certainly a lack of diversity. I've had students literally say, "When I visited New York City, I went almost the entire day without seeing any Americans!"

In Bend itself... I have a friend with adopted kids and they occasionally deal with some light racism from other kids whose parents have given them some offensive ideas. However, these are isolated incidents that have happened once or twice over several years. Some of my neighbors have problems with "those Mexicans" that moved into adjacent units.

Still, it's certainly not pervasive and you'll probably only deal with prejudice in rare circumstances. Overall and for the vast majority of situations, Bend is open-minded and tolerant. The good news is that it's becoming moreso every year.

If Oregon approves same sex marriage this year, which I hope it will, the tolerance should increase even more rapidly.
