Thank you for this first lesson
For future reference, "dear" is something grandmothers (or parents) say to children, or to many people younger than them (this is why it's viewed as patronizing). It's also something that romantic partners and married people say to each other. Those are the only contexts in which the word is used.

Another note: humor can be easily misunderstood between cultures, or sometimes--even between strangers of the same culture. Be careful with humor. After you've been in the US awhile, you'll get a better understanding of what's acceptable and what isn't, and what type of humor works, and in what situations. It's sounds like you're really in for a grand adventure! Lots to learn, and see, and experience.

Do not rush to judge people from one comment

If you want another lesson;
NO ONE is 'afraid' of gays. Afraid is a word that you use to describe someone who will hurt you.
Gays don't hurt people and therefore there is no reason to be afraid.

A better word would be that you're accepting of gays - although I'm not convinced you should say that either.

Listen - no one is going to laugh when you talk about gays and sodomites.
Don't come here if that's your sense of humor. Its actually called "hate speech" here.
Get a grip.

$3000 per month does not go very far in San Francisco. San Francisco is VERY expensive for rent.

Los Angeles is also VERY expensive for rent.

It may make sense for you to also consider learning English at a University in a lower cost of housing area -- either in California or perhaps in another state such as Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah etc. I understand from your posts that you prefer a climate that is not too hot. You can find acceptable climates in many locations.

what is your problem ?? You ask me should you do not come to America if you're afraid of homosexuals? Was not this your words?

Well I gave you respond

But that does not try to play with me inventing speech

You are trying to make there is the issue of hatred, racist I do not think why?

I think there you have trouble understanding others

This problem must be solved with yourself is not fabricating problems with others

I respect all people and does not have a problem with one

* But the problem in the way your analysis to the words of others

$3000 will be enough for a good 1-bedroom apt. in SF. By the way, where is your language program located? When you're ready to look for apartments, we can advise you as to which neighborhoods to avoid, and which ones are good.

But I do not want to go anywhere else but California

I adore this state a lot and I think I'm in the beginning I will live with a host family in order to learn a lot of the laws of the country

I can add another sum of my own pocket if necessary

No, not in a month, but per week in 3000 I think it's enough to live and play because the study also will be free for me
