I'm in the Burbs... severely. McKinney, it doesn't get any more burby. It is hard to fit in... I have ZERO in common with 99% of the moms here and usually they just ignore me. I can count on one hand the times I have seen either AP moms or alternative looking moms. I'm introverted so that counts against me, an outgoing person who could overlook MAJOR philosophical differences would probably do better here. I wouldn't say the general public is unaccepting... more that they treat the AP lifestyle with curiosity and a slight air of negativity, if that makes sense. When people learn that I'm a homebirther they usually say the could "never!" do that... same with homeschool.
Also, there are way hipper places than where we live so that is also a factor.
We have not experienced overt racism but most of the time dh and our kids are the only people of color. Shoot, most of the time I am on the only Italian! I do witness lots of sexism, classism, and homophobia unfortunately.
I don't want to scare you off from a place you might love but dh and I vow constantly to get our kids out of here ASAP.
