My country is one of the 3%. x] My country is very unaccepting of it.
I live in Faroe Islands, you might not have heard of it.
It's 18 tiny islands, placed somewhere between UK, Norway and Iceland. We kind of belong to Denmark, but we have our own everything. Language, laws, flag, so on.
It's very unaccepting here, since we're around 50.000 people, so it's very small and nearly everyone knows everyone. Considering it's so small, most people here have nothing to do (we have no entertainment thingies, only one REAL mall, which contains 20-30 stores?, No KFC, No WalMart.. Just recently last year, we got an ice skating hall, which is open on winter, with really sucky ice. :c), so gossip and knowing everything about everyone is very common around here.
Since we're so small, everyone is 'normal' around here, and if you aren't, you get very frowned upon and everyone knows about you.
Like, I had something going on in my life, which contained the subject 'bisexuality'. Somehow people I didnt even KNOW knew EVERYTHING about my personal life and the troubles in it, and asked my friends about it behind my back.
Wherever I went, people would know all about it and talk about it behind my back, and usually didn't know until some of my friends usually came over, like ".. Uh, not to be mean or anything, but just so you know, they talk about you behind your back." It made me really insane. Believe me. But yeah. You cant really do as you want, without people knowing it, and if it's juicy enough, gossiping about it.
I'm from Canada and I've never had any people picking on me about my sexuality or the fact that I'm dating another girl. I think gay marriage is legal here, but I'm not setting anything in stone. Once in my life I had met this one girl who kept using the term 'gay' to describe these guys and I just stopped talking to her. She found out I was bi and her face was just blank. But that's it for my expiriences with anything like that. My family and friends are fine with it.
I know some states in America have legal gay marriage, and other states are mostly accepting, but I know in Kentucky you can get the shit beaten out of you, and it pisses me off. I have gay friends and the most wonderful sister in the world who happens to be a lesbian, and people have chased them down because they've shown pride. It makes me want to slap some sense into my homophobic state...
Hey, I saw your videos on youtube and I liked them, so here I am and I saw this poll! Well, I live in Greece and my country doesn't accept homosexuality that much...which is ironic if you think that in Ancient Greece there was a lot of homosexual activity. So, for example, once the mayor of this island tried to hold a gay marriage and everyone went like " BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH" on tv, it was so fucking annoying! But there is an island where there are a lot of homosexual (it's called Mykonos), which is loved by clubbers and gay people there kiss on the streets and all that and from what I heard, everyone is cool with it, but if they see a gay couple kissing in a village ANYWHERE ELSE IN GREECE, I bet they would shoot them down or something. Well, law says that homosexuality is fine but gay people can't get married or adopt kids, but yeah, some people still haven't even accepted that. Do you believe that there are teachers and classmates in my school that clearly support the belief that gays should be burned to death ON SIGHT? I swear people here are fucking bipolar, anyway, they're leaning towards hating rather than accepting homosexuality, but there are signs of improvement. Wow, that's a long comment...it's a touchy subject for me since I have friends and family members who are gay and have been through many hardships because of people's stupidity.. Enough of my babbling XD
