SlothB77: I love how it isn't controversial for homosexuals to go to so-called 'straight bars' (or just non-gay bars), but it is sooo controversial for a heterosexual person to go to a gay bar. the best karaoke selection can be found at a gay bar near me and there are hot straight woman that go there. people will figure out i am straight pretty quickly, so what is so bad about going there?


Do you often demonize gay people on the radio?

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. There was a record needle coming off the record sort of moment, and then an older black dude asked, after I explained that I just wanted a cold beer, "Son... didn't you see all them colored flags hanging up outside? You do know what they mean, right?"

It kind of caught me off guard, so I replied, "Yeah, I saw them. Do they mean you don't serve beer to straight dudes in here or something?" Everyone agreed that the flags didn't in fact mean that a random straight dude couldn't enter their bar and drink a beer, and although it was a somewhat rare occurrence, it was perfectly acceptable.

So then me and the guy opposite the older fellow played a couple games of pool after which I resumed my trek better hydrated than when I began, with no hanky-panky involved in the interim.

/yes, yes, very csb...


Beer is a diuretic, the effects kick in after 20 minutes (new window). You would not have been better hydrated, unless you were drinking something else in the bar.

Stayed in their long enough to 'play a couple of games of pool', huh. Is that like 'friend of Dorothy'?

Someone in the thread mentioned they've heard the show, and he does apparently get in to anti-gay rhetoric. Obviously anecdotal, but good enough for me. I honestly can't imagine a right wing radio host putting together a four hour show without getting in an anti-gay segment.

If he was walking, or from out of town and didn't know his way around, there might be a tiny bit of a reason to believe him. As it is, he was driving, and I can't imagine the greater Houston area exactly has a shortage of drinking establishments. He couldn't come up with a better excuse? Really?

BurnShrike: steamingpile: I went to one of atlantas gay bar but it was because it was the only thing open really late and it was basically a drug store where you could get whatever you want and I could sell left over weed.

You farking liar. You're just making that up.

There's no such thing as "left over" weed.


Usually I agree but this was back when I was helping to sell some and it was easy to get rid of quite a bit in about an hour. About a year after I quit the place got busted, luck plays a role in everyones life at some point.

I was in full drag in a bar in 1977 in Albuquerque, and went up to the bar to get a pitcher of beer for the ladies from the Baptist youth group I was with. The girls had done my makeup and I was quite fetching back in the day. I look to my right and there, staring at me, is my hero, David Soul, of Starsky and Hutch. He's smiling at me knowing I recognized him and thinks he's in like Flynn. I'm a cop at the time and want his autograph. I open my mouth, and lean towards him. He leans in smiling. I say, "You're David Soul, right?" and he nods as his smile turns to a straight line and I turn to get the attention of the girls at my table. I turn back, and he's gone like the roadrunner. Nothing but a cloud of dust where he as standing.

The girls thought it was hilarious.
I was crestfallen.
Not as crestfallen as the guy who knew the girls from high school, came up to the table buzzed and hit on me relentlessly. I said nothing, still moping about David having left. Finally, after about 20 minutes of this dude breathing all over me and trying to cop a feel, I said, "You know, it's guys like you that make it hard for nice guys like me to score with the ladies in this world. Now Buzz off, jerk!"

Now THAT was a look of disappointment.

941 Saloon in Pittsburgh. I was catching a bus out of town and showed up downown early to make sure I caught it. I had a bit of time, so I looked for a place to have a few drinks so i could catnap during the trip. It wasn't a dreary and dim place like one of the bars up the street, nor was it trying to be posh - and failing - like so many of the other places portending to be hip. And it had a good selection on tap. And free pizza that day! A guy asked me why i was in that place and I let him know that I was waiting for a bus and wanted a drink. But then he clarified: he wanted to know what I was doing in a gay bar. I had no idea.

You'd have to go back and listen to his podcasts, which is about as painful as listening to Rush.

The very fact that he considers being called gay "a smear" says pretty much all you need to know.

Huh? Moving goalposts? More like you're dodging a direct question. I'll rephrase it for you. You can call me one of "the people that see nothing hypocritical here (yet)". I'm simply asking what you've heard him say or do that makes him a hypocrite.

If you'd vote for a candidate or party that says they believe you are an abomination and that every aspect of your sexuality and relationship with your partner is disgusting and should be illegal, simply because you like their fiscal policy, you're a sell-out.

I am about as conservative as they come and am very familar with Berry's show here in Houston. Personally, I never really listen to it because I don't care for his style of presenting. But he does have some great guests on from time to time. I'ts just that Hannity, Levin, Prager, etc. are more my speed.

I've never heard any 'anti-gay' rants, and I know that he approves of our Gay mayor (as just about all Houstonians do). He doesn't care much for islam (neither do I) because of the insanity and evil. But that's not racist because islam isn't a race. Most of the liberals here at Fark hate christianity, but that's not 'racism' either. Most well-trained liberals hate Isreal too, but I don't even think that's racist. He does NOT like Sheilah Jackson Lee (most Houstoniand don't), but he has plenty of black guests on his show.

All that said, I tend to agree with much of what I'm reading here. If he went to the gay bar alone, knowing it was a gay bar, then he was abviously 'curious', looking to score a 'match-book 50', or some other thing that his listeners would be shocked to learn. Sounds like he got pretty f*cked up if he rammed somebody hard enough to do that much damage. You generally don't do that sober, unless the other guy was partially at fault.

It's kind of a shame to hear all this, because I thought he had more sense than that. Personally, I think he's finished on the air. There was another guy here in Houston (big-time conservative talk host) by the name of John Matthews a few years back who got sent to prison for indecency with a child, It was terrible.

But none of this stuff is the 'indictment' against political conservatism that so many of you are trying to make it out to be. With people like Berry or Matthews, all we can do is pray for them.

Sgt Stubby: But none of this stuff is the 'indictment' against political conservatism that so many of you are trying to make it out to be.


Fiscal conservatism is one thing. You want to lower taxes, cut spending, that's all rational policy that I'm happy to entertain and debate all day long.

Social conservatism, as currently espoused by the Republican party, is disgusting. The homophobic and anti-muslim hate speech is put right out in the open, and the racism against immigrant hispanics (both legal and illegal) is only thinly veiled.

If you align yourself with the Republican party, you align yourself with bigotry.

wee: Tigger: There are a number of reasons your story is complete bullshiat but the most prominent one is that you are requiring us to believe that all these gay dudes couldn't spot you were straight the split second you sat down.

No, every word is 100% true. I don't know if they were just being polite or not, but the one guy essentially was asking what I was doing there when he came over to talk. Maybe he thought I was curious or something. Turns out I just didn't care. I didn't think it was weird or whatever (though in retrospect I think they did). It was hot afternoon, they sold beer, place was not very crowded, seemed quiet, I'd go in and get something to drink.

I had a great time. My brother was going to college in the city and I had afternoons to kill three days a week, so I decided to go see the city by walking around it. That particular day I wanted a beer, and the place next to me happened to be a gay bar (though more like a lounge; like with a bar on the right, some high tables/stools in the middle part and a bank of pool tables on the left), and I went in. It's really no more complicated than that.

Though now that I think back on it, it seems kind of sad that it would be so unusual for a straight guy to walk into a gay bar -- without it being a stunt or prank or something. Like there's some unseen (and maybe self-imposed?) segregation at work. It's like hearing someone say "Yeah we can't go there, it's only Chinese there". So? They sell food? You hungry for food? Then go in and get dim sum or whatever.

vernonFL: 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.

Never had a gay experience in my life, and no urge to speak of. Sometimes a beer is just a beer. They did seem to think it was odd at first, but I ended up staying a while, so they all pretty much ignored me after a bit and we just played pool and had a couple ...


Honestly? It sounds completely typical. The ONLY time I've ever seen people get upset at str8 people in a gay bar is when they make a scene over making SURE that EVERYONE ELSE KNOWS THEY'RE STRAIGHT. As if it wasn't completely obvious the second you walked through the door.

Generally - if you're cool, we're cool.

/Also if you get hit on, declining politely WITHOUT saying "because I'm straight" is the right way to go.

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.

I have more of a problem with what he does on the radio than who he does when he's off.

NTTAWWT.

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!

Are you trolling or brain damaged?

You're referring to the Log Cabin Republicans who are routinely excluded from Republican functions by the Republican establishment, right?

I do get your point, though. A handful of homophobic Democrats is indeed just as bad as a party that encodes second-class status for gays in their very platform.

I think you're missing my point. I'm not a Republican. Never have been, likely never will be. So if you're asking me to defend their politics, you're asking the wrong person. I've voted mostly Democratic with a few Independent and Green Party votes in local elections. But just because I vote Democratic does not mean I support their platform 100%. In fact, I'd say a disagree with a large part of their platform, but their policies are more inline with my beliefs than that of any other party.

My point is, there are gay people who are actually indifferent to things like DOMA and DADT, and that does not make them bigots. They may vote Republican for a myriad of other reasons.

And I get you're point. Gay people who vote Republican are less than gay people who vote Democratic. I just think that view is pretty closed minded. I guess I don't look at issues as black and white as you and try not to think of things as "You're either with us or against us". To each his own, I guess.
