Why should gays be subject to abuse and humiliations that no citizen would tolerate without legal retaliation ? I salute the Mexican Supreme Court for this ruling .. Freedom of speech should always include respect for your fellow beings , no matter how much you may disagree with them ; for everything can be firmly said without resort to insults ..

Those cities haven't seen the tens of thousands of murders that Mexico has in just the past few years.

Maybe .. but they're drug related crimes and have nothing whatsoever to do with the issue at hand , which is anti gay hate speech .. Surely you're aware of that ..

I suppose this is a good thing, but I still have a problem with the outlawing ofwhat people call "hate speech". Who determines what is "hate speech" and just how much latitude do they have in their choice?
Remember the American Sedition Act, anyone?

Yes, murders carried out with guns exported by the US to fight the drug war that America exported.

Right now, it's a necessary evil in many areas. One day it would be nice, and wise, to abolish these laws, I do agree they are dangerous if placed in the wrong hands.

Quite right .. There are many wonderful people there .. The last I met ( university students - 3 boys and a girl - on a train from Spain to Italy ) were absolutely delightful and they spent most of the trip discussing literature and catching up on their homework .. And neither they cared if I was gay , bi or whatever .. The ones I befriended in Chicago and New York were also very well-educated and kind ..

I actually want to move to Mexico, I'm a desert person and regret returning to the north after living in Arizona for some time, Tucson, not the City of Idiots called Phoenix. I get along with Mexicans better than USians by far. I'd consider Canada but ... I'm a desert person, can't stand the cold.

Actually it is, as far as rampant political and police corruption almost as bas as Cubans in Miami.

Well, atleast in Mexico you won't be attacked for not speaking Spanish .

"Homeless Man Beaten With Cane Outside Miami Gas Station"

Miami Police said the homeless person tried to shield themselves from the attack but eventually fell down on the ground. The witness told police the beating continued until the cane broke and then the attacker, who police believe was Alba, began to kick the homeless person in the back, chest, and head.

According to police, Alba described what led to the beating.“The guy was talking and saying things to me in English I didn’t understand. He went to get up and I grabbed his cane and hit him a few times with it.”

Go to Jalapa ( Halapah ), in the south .. they call it " the garden of the Republic " and it's absolutely paradisiacal .. warm also .. Good luck !( though you come across as a girl who makes her own luck )..
