Dehumanization is the process by which members of a group of people assert the "inferiority" of another group through subtle or overt acts or statements. Dehumanization may be directed by an organization (such as a state) or may be the composite of individual sentiments and actions, as with some types of de facto racism. State-organized dehumanization has been directed against perceived racial or ethnic groups, nationalities (or "foreigners" in general), religious groups, genders, minorities of various sexual orientations (e.g., homosexuals), disabled people as a class, economic (e.g., the homeless) and social classes, and many other groups. Some names are used such as sewer rat, spic, jap, and gook.
Now us in the LGBT Community knows what this mean, after all we hate being call, fag, faggot, dyke, homosexual, ect ect.

Hillbilly is a term referring to people who dwell in rural, mountainous areas of the United States, primarily Appalachia. Due to its strongly stereotypical connotations, the term is frequently considered derogatory, and so is usually offensive to those Americans of Appalachian heritage.
Very Nice Matt, this from a person whom writes about equality for all. Yet, you are calling names and insulting a whole group of folks... However thanks for proving that we are just as guilty of the same thing, which we are fighting against. I guess Glaad and you would felt differently if the title was "Faggot Hillbillies or Dyke Hillbillies), used by those bigots in one of their pieces online.. Glaad and you would be calling for some-type of campaign.
Thanks once again for showing the world that we (lgbt's) use hate words and hate speech too... I guess now what we are truly equal to those whom hate us.
