Mississippians wouldn't appreciate your characterization of their entire state as knuckle-dragging troglodytes ready to beat the first gay person they see into a pulp

implicit stereotype of California as some particularly enlightened, progressive, peaceful place where this kind of thing just doesn't happen because everyone holds hands and dances and sings songs together or some such nonsense.
WHEW-WEE!! I didn't realize I said all that!! Shame on me!!

Alright, this will be the last time I respond to this particular issue. Obviously I was not meaning to put down an entire population of a state. HOWEVER, I am still a little surprised and disappointed that the event took place in California, a state that is IN GENERAL a very liberal state where gay rights and attitutes towards gays are LIGHT YEARS ahead of a conservative state such as Mississippi where IN GENERAL homophobia runs rampart and where gay sex would still be illegal and a punishable offense were it not for the US Supreme Court.

That's all I was trying to say which are not stereotypes, they're facts.

CA is really two states. People think it's a North/South division, but it's really more of a Coast/Inland or urban/rural division. LA, SF, college towns, tend to be liberal and the rural areas and outlying suburbs tend to be conservative.

I was just thinking this. The ultra-conservative rural Californians balance the Berkeley hippie liberals. Look at who's governor of CA.

That's interesting, that's something I didn't know! So, the town that this event happened in, is it inland or coastal?

A 15 year old boy by the name of Lawrence King was shot in the head and killed during school in Oxnard, California, after reportedly coming out of the closet.
