I was telling money4nothing, the other day, in the BsAs GTG, that here people is very open about "racial" and cultural things, but tends to be homophobic, but there aren't any significant violence against gays. Physical violence I mean. And usually gays aren't discriminated on jobs and things like that. But people, mostly guys tends to make a lot of jokes about them.
I think that the generalization about things is as wrong as hate.
I saw a very similar take to your discription in Peru, Colombia and Chile...jokes but never hate crimes or anything like that.
I can understand this author's feelings. I disagree with a homosexual lifestyle, but no one should be subject to the kind of discrimination he encounters.
