The attitude you see isn't endemic to a place.
I've seen it all over, and I bet you have too. It's more a state of mind.
There are so many broken boys.
Scarred by their journey to self-awareness, they unthinkingly shunt their pain onto others,
and pass the legacy forward.
We're all scarred, but guys who become bears are doubly wounded. Rejected by the straight world, shunned by the gotta-be-thin fashionista, they cling to their beardom, once discovered, like the drowning to a thread.
Unfortunately, that pattern of rejection is hard to break. Sad. They do exactly the same thing that was done to them.
And so on...
