The gays in Spain stay mostly on the train?
The intertwined connection between homosexual socio-politics and leftism has a very long and sordid history. The fact that Spain is the most homosexual friendly country in the world is like saying Disneyland is the happiest place on earth. Both are nothing more than brand monikers for ticket sales.
Last I heard, Espana was sinking by the bow economically.If they want it, they can have it.
I think Pride Parades do wonders for gay acceptance worldwide.
edutcher-I'm sure there is a correlation between being "gay friendly" and economic quagmire. Just look at Uganda.

Tapas are sooo gay.
Tapas are sooo gay. Tap ass?
Run with the bulls
I question the criteria."Gay friendly" = giving loud political (left wing) gays whatever they ask for?Oh, okay. Have fun with your friendly friends in conformist socialist Yurp paradise.BTW, I don't think Europe is quite as "gay friendly" as everyone automatically assumes. (See, e.g., French rioting and mobilizing regarding the gay marriage laws.) It's not just the Islamic fundamentalists.
What do you expect from a country that allows a guy named Francisco rule for 36 years?
Why are there never articles about the most straight friendly countries??
I wonder if some of the reason Spain is so friendly towards gays is because there, the conservatives and the Catholic Church backed Franco.Nothing like years and years of brutal oppression to strip away moral authority.
Did you ever wonder why the Spaniards pronounce their soft c's like th's? Wonder no longer.
Are the sheep safe over there?

Auch die Deutschen lieben die Schwule.
Michael Haz: Why are there never articles about the most straight friendly countries??You should be counting your blessings, not joking about it.
OT: Looks like Brewers hero Ryan Braun is going down in flames.Pity.
I have been to Spain, yea it's pretty gay.Argentina and Brazil seemed the gayest to me.
The country that invented machismo?I call bullshit.
Gahrie-Ask Titus. Machismo is a front.
"Homophobia?" So disapproval of the homosexual lifestyle and its consequences, which are well documented by the CDC, is an "abnormal fear" of homosexuals according to Atlantic?What utter drivel! Do journalists even own dictionaries?
hombre said...What utter drivel! Do journalists even own dictionaries?Why would a journalist need a dictionary when whatever they utter is gospel?
"Why are there never articles about the most straight friendly countries??"If you believe that gay-unfriendly equates to straight-friendly as some commenters would seem to...then the most straight-friendly parts of the world are obvious. They'd include large parts of the Middle East and Africa.
Tapas are sooo gay.Tapas are not gay. They help a man drink for hours while sitting at the bar but still get some decent food in his belly. The problem is tapas have become feminized. Women have discovered them and seem to think they fit in their weight-control regimen. Now we have tapas that barely meet the definition, like fried Brussels sprouts.
"Why would a journalist need a dictionary when whatever they utter is gospel?"Sometimes I just forget.
Franco kept Espana out of WW II. Lot of gratitude for his crafty neutrality (and don't think he wasn't pressured hard by Adolph and Benito to get in) from many Spanish madres and padres, but of course they don't count, those dirty fascists.
Women adore homos and hate straight beta males but at the moment of truth who's your daddy? Si se puede. Fegalahs not so much.
Why are there never articles about the most straight friendly countries??Pick up an atlas. Flip to a random page. The country you landed on is 100% friendly to heterosexuals.There. Happy?
So disapproval of the homosexual lifestyle and its consequences, which are well documented by the CDCYou accidentally left out a link to where, at cdc.gov, this extensive documentation can be found.Please, share. :)
Nice, but it doesn't help their economy.
"Nice, but it doesn't help their economy."Actually it probably does much more than you'd realize. Tourism is pretty important there....
ecause of its low fertility rate in recent decades, Spain is ageing rapidly. Having had 5.6 people of working age for every retired person in 1970, Spain has just 3.6 today. By 2050, the ratio will have deteriorated to 1.5, according to the OECD. Public expenditure on pensions is expected to rise from around 9% of GDP today to 15.5% by 2050.
http://m.cdc.gov/en/HealthSafetyTopics/DiseasesConditions/STDs/syphilisMSM_FSWhy should MSM be concerned about syphilis?Over the past several years, increases in syphilis among MSM have been reported in various cities and areas, including Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Southern California, Miami, and New York City. In the recent outbreaks, high rates of HIV co-infection were documented, ranging from 20 percent to 70 percent. While the health problems caused by syphilis in adults are serious in their own right, it is now known that the genital sores caused by syphilis in adults also make it easier to transmit and acquire HIV infection sexually.
All the Pedro Almodóvar movies probably didn't hurt.
I was scoffing down tapas in a bar in Barcelona and a guy got friendly, insistantly friendly, and he kept talking about this place filled with beautiful friendly senoritas and I was drunk and then drunker and then in a taxi and then with a senorita and then back on the street with a wallet lighter by a thousand American and that's my very unHemingwayesque memory of Spain.
There is no such thing as 'gay diseases'. The diseases that affect the gay community, are diseases of opportunity based on behavior. I disapprove of unhealthy behavior, I do not disapprove of people.
...I do not disapprove of people.How about when they've earned it?...to quote John Houseman.
ROFL, the rodeo clowns of homosexuality.Now that's funny! Bravo! My new nickname for pride-fags.Pick up an atlas. Flip to a random page. The country you landed on is 100% friendly to heterosexuals.Revenant, have I told you lately how much I love you?I disapprove of unhealthy behaviorThat rules out pretty much anything fun.
Renee:Actually, there are "oriented" diseases, which are not merely opportunistic. The male homosexual population is at increased risk to contract STDs because of their promiscuous behavior, but also because of their chosen entry point. The rectum was simply not designed for the form of exploitation some human beings have chosen to practice.because of its low fertility rate in recent decadesSince homosexual behavior is exhibited by a minority of human beings, this is primarily a heterosexual "disease". The principles of evolution are inviolable. They cannot be considered selectively for matters of wealth, welfare, or convenience. It did not help when they normalized human sacrifice, and thereby devalued human life, for the same purpose.The normalization of evolutionary dysfunction will succeed where an alien invasion ultimately failed. The Europeans are so smart, and, apparently, are in the majority incapable of self-moderating, responsible behavior.
n.n, the thesaurus queen, strikes again! Torpor ensues.
die SchwuleNein, es ist maskulin.der Schwuleyeah....go figure!
Any country with a high percentage of uncut dick is ok by me.
@MadasHell: Du hast Recht gehabt Du Spitzbube! Ich meinte "die Schwulen."
Ich meinte "die Schwulen."Thanks, another word in my vocabulary. I only knew it was masculine because I looked it up.How many people here study German??
How many people here study German?? Relatively few...it has that stigma you know. I was surprised once here to learn how many people know some Italian.
Assigning genders to objects is silly. I much prefer English.
Wow, I actually agree with Inga about something. Four years of high school German and der, die, das, kiss my ass.
Assigning genders to objects is silly. I much prefer English. The Dutch gender reassigned their three grammatical genders. Der and die (masc. and fem.) nouns and articles become one: de. Neuter remains: het = das.
I think the idea was to equalize the sexes and to stigmatize the "its".
@ n.n.What you described was behavior. As I told a loved one, anal sex with multiple partners is not healthy. I can not teach my children that this behavior is OK but I will explain it in a neutral manner. Women have anuses too.
So what about this Nadal guy?He can break hearts on both sides of the aisle.
Russia and China are the clear outliers: predominantly atheist, yet with just a few (16 percent and 21 percent of people, respectively) who say homosexuality should be accepted by society -- a sign that anti-gay prejudice there is cultural and historical, not ideological. I'm pretty sure there's a strong ideological component there.
This was a survey of 39 of the world's 200 or so countries. So it was pretty poor journalism of the Atlantic to conclude that Spain is "the country that's most accepting of homosexuality". Good for the Spanish though that they top that list.
What's so good about it?
Evidently, the "running of the bulls" has had an adverse effect on the men of that country.
"Assigning genders to objects is silly. I much prefer English."Natural languages are not the result of planned and deliberate effort, so there is no silliness in grammar. More importantly, terms like masculine and feminine, used to indicate grammatical gender, are hardly more than a naming convention without biological relevance. Die Fahne never meant to imply that a flag is (a) female. The Hebrew word for 'fathers', avot, has a feminine plural suffix -ot. The word for 'women', nashim, has a masculine ending -im.Languages with simple declension systems, like English, do have the advantage that they are easier to learn as a second language.
As far as I'm concerned, any country which does not outlaw sodomy is gay friendly. Once they have achieved that, the gays should just live their lives quietly like everyone else. Other people have the right to like or dislike their lifestyle just as they have the right to like or dislike straights.
The gays in Spain stay mostly on the train?The pipe is lain mostly with the gays in Spain.FIFY.
I thought the most gay-friendly country in the world was Disneyland?
It is a lisp-friendly country.
It's about time there was some good news out of Nigeria.
Pick up an atlas. Flip to a random page. The country you landed on is 100% friendly to heterosexuals.Damn, I got Vatican City. What are the chances?
That helps explain why Spain has the lowest fertility rate in Europe at only 1.1 child per couple.
