The week’s stupidest headline

Bigotry, biscuits and gravy — yep, that about sums up gay life in the South. Uniformed generalizations like these attempt to regionalize a divide that exists nationwide. Atlanta’s about as gay-friendly a city as you’ll find. No doubt it’s much more accepting than, say, western Pennsylvania or eastern Oregon.

But the media traffic in stereotypes — it’s easier that way — so expect another broad caricature.
