What holds Japan and South Korea back on these issues is what may ultimately hold them back on others - a high emphasis on conformity within society. That is why they are good at making things but no so good at inventing things. They cannot think out of the box and no not appreciate people who do.

Having an educated society leads to understanding and acceptance. Who would have predicted that?

Bigotry, racism and violence are always most prevalent where religious ignorance and educational ignorance rule by force.

Does not explain the results for Japan and South Korea, however, countries having high literacy rates and probably the among highest computed IQ's in any population. That is why I mentioned the issue of conformity as well.

This poll is a lie. Most developed countries do not support SSM. What they mean are white cold climate countries. You forgot China, England, Germany, Russia, India, Spain, Italy, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Mexico, US, etc. etc.....so, stop lying.

All of you listen, in a few short years we will be a banana republic and then they will have to reword the title. More banana republics support gay marrage. It has a better ring to it anyway. Cheers.

DUH, Russian is not a cold-climate country? Furthermore, Mexico, Egypt, and India are not typically classified as "developed" and I am not so sure about Iraq and Iran. England will likely have SSM in a few months. Spain already has SSM, dummy. You are the liar.
