Isn't it comforting to know we're the most hated group in the western world? Wow, that's going to help me sleep tonight...
According to a new study out of Australia, gays and lesbians are the most hated minority group in the world. The researchers posed the question, "Would you like to have a person from this group as your neighbor?" The survey then asked about muslims, gays, Jews, immigrants, or someone of a different race. Whudda thunk it that the primary group other folks don't want to live next to would be the queers?
It's not just you being paranoid. They really do hate you. Of course, you could be a Jewish lesbian. Or a Muslim gay man. Yikes. Especially for muslims - they ranked #2. (Immigrants came in third.)
The most top five most homophobic nations? You might be surprised - I was!
