wow, pretty ridiculous and inaccurate stereotype having lived in the bay area myself for 6 years on the peninsula and spending much time in the city. The mocking tone of your post of my alma-mater Stanford as having queer studies reveals a clear ignorance of that institution’s well regarded educational programs (you could only dream of attending apparently), and a hatred towards gays, but that is your problem I suppose. Besides, the Bay area ain’t all liberal, after all, particularly Stanford, home of the conservative think tank Hoover Institution where the “expert” of Russian studies, Ms Rice, spent some time acquiring her so-called expertise. Perhaps your characterization of the bay area is because you are not a professional and therefore don’t interact or know few professionals. IMO, the city is full of entrepreneurs, very interesting, dynamic, diverse and fun, and I would not hesitate to raise a family in the city or on the peninsula. [/quote]
Well . . . Perhaps you should read/re-read Breeze’s comments.
Or, perhaps the irony was lost on you, a Stanford grad, concerning these comments in general?
Using his/her logic, all San Diego residents are stupid, lazy, troglodytes, who only eat at family style restaurants and attend NASCAR races. Maybe some of them even have all their teeth?
So using The Breeze’s logic, all people in San Francisco must be bi-sexual or gay . . . have doctorates in particle physics . . .or are graduates of Sorbonne and have their own studios.
The point was not Stanford, nor gays, nor the conservatives in northern california, but the Breeze’s ridiculous and contemptuous statements about San Diego residents.
Other than these comments, I agree with everything you said.
