Let's see, US southerners (religious fundies) despise gays, the US
military despises gays, Californian African-Americans despise gays,
Mormons despise gays. The Republican elite, when they're not
toe-tappin' and playin' Butt Pirates of the Airport Restroom, despise

So what were you all saying?  Something about somebody being decades
ahead of somebody else, regarding respect for gender diversity?  Oh
yeah, Iran.  Bad bad Iran.  Bad bad Ayatollahs.
