ABC: Gay Bashing at a Straight Sports Bar

I hadn't seen this. Hopefully, the tolerance level will continue to rise.

I believe in the idea that sexuality exists on a sort of "scale", that people aren't "straight" or "gay" or "bi" but some mix of all of it -- this isn't my original idea, but I forget where the idea came from. Anyway -- I suppose I consider myself pretty 'straight' on this scale, and I could seriously care less who kisses who or does what with their own bodies. I thought I was in the minority in this opinion -- but then again, I'm from the South. Where was this experiment done? If it was in the North (as it would appear), I would *assume* that people would be generally more tolerant. I'd be interested to see the same experiment at a bar in southeast Texas or coastal Mississippi or somewhere. Just some thoughts . . .

Thanks for sharing this.

One thing I don't like in the video is the use of the word "tolerance." I think we should all be talking about, and shooting for, acceptance rather than tolerance.
