I'm not sure either. So many things that other countries have a hang-up about are considered quite alright in Jam. But the homosexual thing just brings up an flame that just never goes away. It's an instinctive sort of hate that they hammer into you since youth. The things that they used to tell me about homosexuals when I was growing up was horrible and completely degraded them as people. They advocated violence against homosexuals. And I even witnessed violence against homosexuals while growing up there. And I really never got that or why it should be that way. But speaking against that sort of makes them look at you funny, and wanna poke you with a pitchfork so you sort of just turn a blind eye to it.
But I think that's with any country. It seems every place in the world has that one ridiculous, primitive hang-up. It's sad though. Because violence against homosexuals there is horrible and widespread.
