3. Radical homophobic Muslims feeling more free to go all billy big bollocks

Birmingham is far worse than London, and London is not the best. 90% of the stick I got growing up in London as an 'out' lesbian (came out at 13) was from, unfortunately, radical Islamic rotters. It deffo seems to be getting worse now, as they are slithering into the political power structure more and more, even if not via direct election to Parliament. I am in Sweden and London for the summer and it seems to be getting worse. In Sweden it is more of suburban issue, as the segregation here is off the charts.

The US (we live in Southern California when we are in the US) has far less of an issue (that I have seen, but I am not an authority on the problem) it seems with the radical Muslims displaying outright, hostile homophobia than it does with other elements (fundie xians especially) of the population doing so, but who knows, maybe with time it also takes on a more virulent face there as well.

It is a global, systemic problem unfortunately.
