I mean, really? And it's ten times worse for me, because I live in the south (Georgia). Most people here are just dumb*ss, ignorant, and prejudiced rednecks.

Even though they cannot tease/insult me physically because I am 6'5", I still occasionally recieve insults. I am above most people on a maturity level, so I won't resort to threatening to beating people up.

Forgive if I sound like a b*tch. I feel a ton better now that I expressed myself.
To be fair, I was speaking more of the people living in that region. Nearly every Muslim I know of in the west has a much more level head. Sure they may not like someone insulting the prophet or Allah, but they aren't about to go drag them through the streets because of it.
