I live in the Bible Belt. I know, intellectually, that I am out of step with most social and political thought in this community.
But browsing around OKCupid, with its 2000+ question survey, really brought the differences home to me. I was astonished by how many women oppose gay marriage (most). I was astonished at how many would not date someone who wasn't white (almost all). By how many think flag burning is worse than book burning (again, almost all). By how many think evolution should not be taught in school (probably about a fourth, but any at all boggles my mind).
I try to imagine what a relationship would be like with one of these women. I assume their relationships are built mostly around church and the TV set.
