No, I don't like vaginas.

untaken_name: He didn't realize it was a gay bar, he thought he was actually just in the same bar as Cher, Madonna, and Marilyn Monroe.

fatimcgee: Well, in his defense, I've done the same thing.

\Multiple friends from HS are gay/lesbian
\\Wasn't right that we only went to straight bars
\\\Started going with them to the gay bar
\\Never has so much damn fun in my life
\$1 drinks...STRONG drinks
\\No shortage of good w33d on the patio
\SLASHIES!

CSB, I know...


Gay bars rarely have fights (ironically the butch lesbian bars do), only specific known ones with specific reputations have "action", otherwise the people are friendly and not judgemental, the drinks are cheap and strong, and have better music playing.

My part-time house mate is gay (he's a flight attendant who lives elsewhere with his partner but is based at SFO) and I occasionally join him for a drink after work. The Castro in SF is tame. It's mostly past its prime and is filled with young wanna-be hipsters. The "action bars" are down on Folsom Street.

When I visit Hawaii I bunk on his couch and he took me to a place called Hula's which is a riot. $5 pint Mai-tais. I took my best friend and her army husband and his colleagues there when we were the for a convention and they loved it and one guy who came up to the table to chat us up (he didn't get far other than a "thanks but no thanks"). After he moved on one of the married army guys said "I think he's from my unit!". They were all cool with the bar too and this was long before DADT was repealed. They knew they had gay guys in their unit and didn't care.

Anyway.

If your straight, you're not going to get raped in a gay bar, the drinks are cheap and strong, and you'll earn some street cred.

Remember, 14% of gay men were born that way....the rest were sucked into it.

Had a friend up from LA when I lived in SF. When to an animation festival together and after stopped in a bar for a few beers. It was on Castro & 17th I think. Pretty sure it was a gay bar but didn't really care. They do serve beer in bars frequented by gay men. Or am I supposed to be afraid of cooties?

First time I popped in with a few friends we had a lovely time, really nice beer and after about half an hour said to each other, "There don't seem to be any women in here..............."

Walked out and noticed the rainbow flag above the door.

Nice pub, nice people.

The Jami Turman Fan Club: There's nothing wrong with assuming that when somebody goes into a neighborhood or bar where they stand out from the usual crowd that they're curious, or lost, or about to cause trouble. It's nothing to be ashamed of. I'm surprised you would read that into the story.

Unless you were trolling, of course.


No, not trolling. This is the wide-eyed revelation that made me roll my eyes:

"Everyone agreed that the flags didn't in fact mean that a random straight dude couldn't enter their bar and drink a beer."

Gee, no kidding. In fact, I live in San Francisco. In fact, I don't think this was a revelation brought on by a solo straight person that happened to stumble into a gay bar. In fact, the rainbow flag is a symbol of acceptance, not exclusion.

Maybe I was a bit coarse.

I was in London last September for Eurogamer @ Earls Court. We'd hang out at The Pembroke pub after the show each evening around the corner. It turns out it used to be The Colherne(sp?) which was London's oldest gay bar which was closed and remodeled several years ago That area it seems was an area with several gay establishments that all fizzled out 5-6 years ago and moved to the West End.

He likes the beer there because it's super fresh. They tap out the bunghole on a new one daily.

vernonFL:
but the guys sitting at the bar were very startled when it came out that I was 100% straight.

I can't tell you how many "100% straight" guys I've met at the gay bar and within 10 minutes I'm fondling him under the table and we end up blowing each other in the parking lot.


As long as you didn't get the dreaded "68". But yes, some people can drink three beers in ten minutes.

2012-02-22 06:40:34 AM
So he's not trying to deny committing the crime of hit and run, only the non-issue of being gay? Even if we believed him, how does it make it better that he just ran away from a scene of a crime for no reason?
 
2012-02-22 06:41:10 AM
He was also quoted as saying, "You're the ones who are gay for sucking my dick."

snowjack: Sure, he's not gay. He just fled he scene because he thought it might look bad. Though there's no reason anyone should think it might look bad, 'cause he was just a dude goin out for a beer at just a regular bar, NTTAWWT, etc etc.


This is what it all comes down to.
 
2012-02-22 06:46:47 AM

Solid State Vittles: Strangely relevant (new window).

The dude's probably gay, and who really cares, but really this is potentially a win-win situation.

Either the ardent homophobes in his listening audience a) don't believe him and destroy whatever credibility he has, or b) believe that the homosexual community isn't so bad if their magic talking box buddy goes to gay bars for ice cold manly-in-a-straight-way beer and find a different segment of the population to demonize (I'm hoping they go after masturbators next since life begins at the tip of a man's penis).

Of course, there's a c), d), and e) here too revolving around a lot of "LALALALA I'M NOT LISTENING" or conspiracy theories, but I'm an optimist.


Live/work just outside of Houston, have two high "conservative" homophobe co-workers, one of whom listens to Michael Berry. One is still convinced that he was never there and this is a left wing frame job. "He was only ALLEGEDLY there. And the it's just a CLAIM that he hit a car, you can't even see smeared paint on it."

You wouldn't expose yourself to criminal liability by fleeing the scene of an accident at a gay bar, because if you were in an accident at a gay bar, you would have no reason to panic like this jackhole did.

He's a right-wing conservative. And he's gay. By now, this should surprise no one.

wee: My first time in San Francisco visiting my brother was like that. I was walking all over the city, it was pretty warm, it was right there, I figured fark it, I'm going to get a beer.

The dudes inside were friendly enough, but the guys sitting at the bar were very startled when it came out that I was 100% straight. A guy sat down next to me, started chatting me up, and it became obvious pretty quick that I played for the other team.


I can 100% absolutely believe that tale, especially after I stopped in at the bar "Lace" one day after work in Las Vegas.

For those not familiar, it was a lesbian bar back in the early 90's. It was also walking distance from my office and I had told my husband to meet me there after he finished his job an hour later, as we were going to dinner with friends.

I sat at the bar, chatted with the bartender for a minute and a lady two chairs down mentioned she'd never noticed me in the bar before. "Yeah, my second time here. I'm just waiting for my husband to pick me up."

"Dear, have you noticed the complete lack of men in this bar?"

"Yes, which is why I'm more comfortable waiting here than in the Screaming Eagle."

The bartender stifled a laugh, because I'd just named the leather bar next door. The patron moved closer and asked "So, what do you do for a living?"

"I'm a copy editor and restaurant reviewer for Lesbian Voices."

"And you're straight?"

"Yes. My partner preference has exactly jack and shiat to do with my ability to write and edit. So, how about them Niners?"

At that point, both the patron and bartender cracked up and we talked football until my old man showed up. After that, when I went to the bar with co-workers, no one ever bothered me one way or the other.

If someone is gay, let 'em be. With the Arizona sheriff outing still in the news, we still haven't gotten to the point where it isn't a big deal, and people are still trying to hide it. With Zachary Quinto and comedian Todd Glass coming out, eventually it'll get to the point where someone will announce that they're gay....and nobody will care. We're not there yet.

He also said his presence at the gay bar, which was staging a drag show at the time of his 11 p.m. visit, was not hypocritical, because he's not a homophobe.

Well good for him if he is one of the VERY rare right wingers who is not a homophobe. However, now that this is out, I think his audience will quickly evaporate.

I don't think there's anything wrong with being gay. I do think there's something wrong with being gay while aligning yourself with those who oppress gays. I was on Townhall.com the other day reading the comments about the Arizona sheriff thing. Apparently (and I did not realize this), libturds are hypocrites when they out gay right-wingers because WE'RE the ones who think that gays shouldn't be persecuted for their preferences. And yet, there we are persecuting gays. See what hypocrites we are? Santorum in 2012!

Minor CSB -

When I was in SF for an IT convention, the last night in town was on my dime, so I moved from the corp. hotel to a Howard Johnson/Holiday Inn or something like that....unfortunately, it was right next to a major tour bus staging area, so I heard buses running all night long. The funny thing was the bar that was right below the hotel.
