Has being out hurt you at any point and how?

I am curious about the downside of being out, if there still really is any. I am not advocating not being out. It's a hard way to live in my view. I have been fortunate as the worst I've ever encountered was some woman at a neighborhood party who said 'there's so many of you around here now I can't keep you all straight.' Which was stupid and annoying but not exactly a gay bash or discrimination. But I got wondering (God, I sound like Carrie Bradshaw, sorry) but I did get wondering is prejudice or other negative experience still happening if you're out and open about it and in what way? It's 2013... how bad can it be? Other than the morons in government, what are people up against, if anything?
