Study: Floridians often support gay issues, sort of

by Jeremy Hooper

A new University of Florida study indicates that nearly 3/4 of Floridians are ambivalent when it comes to issues concerning gay rights. For example, while one may oppose discrimination against gays in the workplace, they may also oppose gays teaching their children.

The study also indicates that a majority:

  • loved the "gay vague" Rosie circa '97, yet are uncomfortable with the out and proud O'Donnell of '05
  • never miss Will & Grace, but only because Debra Messing's just so cute and likable
  • always throw their hands up to the tune of "YMCA," because the beat is oh-so danceable and the lyrics oh-so hetero
