Living in the liberal center of the country for three years, which is actually as far left on the map as you can get without falling into the ocean, I saw my fair share of cultural tolerances. These mismashes of lifestyles and choices and whatever other words are “coined” to describe human nature were always interesting and I believe are a part of the great dichotomy of ideas in the Bay Area.
Austin has a similar environment on a much smaller scale, but I still had to laugh at the stereotypical opposition of this weekend’s major events:
The ROT Harley Davidson Rally (some 40,000 motorcycles)
The annual Texas Gay Pride Parade
Someone in the scheduling office has a sense of humor.
