Apr 13th 2011 1:49PM I am always unnerved when countries, like France, pass laws trying to oppress free choice with religious garments. There is a large difference between attempting to convert someone by spouting rhetoric in the streets, and dressing appropriately according to their religion. The French goverment should try and have some cultural understanding.
As for the other countries, gender roles are so fixed, I would not find it surprising to see an equally low number of open gays. Without an ability to express themselves, how can people claim to be the happiest?

During a family vacation in Arizona, a passenger in front of us pulled a shotgun out and shot back at my family and I! While we were all considerably shaken, I simply took that experience as a learning one; always keep your ears perked when driving in areas (and states) where you are not familiar with other people. You never know what could happen.
