Firstly, I didn't even quote you
, and I pointed out plainly that since gay marriage infringes on nobody's rights I do
in fact support it.
Secondly, the ignorant farmland described are actually the Great Plains states. Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, the Dakotas- those guys. The Midwest is made up of the old Northwest Territory from really early on in the US's history and a tiny little bit west of the Mississippi River, generally to the north- Illinois, Indiana, Ohio (sort of), Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan (again- sort of), and, sometimes, Missouri. The only truly
Bible-crazy piece of the Midwest is southern Indiana. They aren't the same at all, geographically or socially, and yet we are always lumped with the likes of Kansas and their imbecilic school board. As for the claim we're all conservative: dead wrong. Just dead wrong. Illinois reliably votes for Democrats, as does Wisconsin (mainly from Madison and Milwaukee- the rest of the state is pretty evenly split). Michigan ('cept the Upper Peninsula, which acts like northern Wisconsin) is more or less ruled by the UAW- take a wild guess as to their voting habits. Iowa, at least as of late, is reliably Democratic. I don't really know about the rest, but the stereotype has already fallen.
