Cool.

Doubt it would have happened in Alabama though.

Is this really an "incredible story?"  It seems like a bunch of drunk people ganging up on a hate-monger in a pizza line at night could, and probably does, happen everywhere.

FTA: I think the fact that the story takes place in Ohio also has something to do with it. The state doesn't have the best reputation for LGBT rights but Columbus is a very progressive city in our state. We have a very large active gay population and we are the home of one of the largest pride festivals in the Midwest.

We'll have news when it's a congregation rising up against a preacher, or landslide victories against politicians who oppose same-sex marriage.

And, not to mention, how "insanely good" could the pizza be in Columbus, Ohio?

That's one of the least incredible stories I've ever read.  Some guy was being a jerk, and people told him to STFU and go away.  Incredible!

Add in the fact that it's in probably the gayest community in Ohio and it's even more incredible

Doesn't really sound like harassment.  He said "cut the gay shiat out" and it appears to have ended there.
Obviously not being there myself, I don't know how gay the gay shiat they were up to was, or whether or not it actually needed to be cut out.  But I've been in quite a few places where people, regardless of sexuality, were behaving obnoxiously enough that the phrase "cut that gay shiat out" would be applicable.

/ I was always too much of a wimp to actually say it though

So why didn't he say "cut that shiat out?" Why did he feel the need to add the word "gay"? And why did you feel the need to add the word "gay", even when you explicity say "regardless of sexuality"?

from the article it sounds like the dude got more vocal and irate throughout the confrontation. either way, this article is the least interesting thing i've read all day.

The term "gay" has evolved into a generic insult, and is no longer specifically applicable to homosexuals.
It meant "happy" before they stole it anyhow, so I don't see why they're always getting so bent out of shape about it.

/Note: I'm not aware of anybody who has actually physically contorted their body into a different shape as a result of the word "gay"s changing meanings.  I was speaking metaphorically.

I would guess that 90 percent of the fistfights I've gotten into in my life were because I spent a lot of my college years running around with hyper-opinionated homosexuals and have an overdeveloped sense of social justice.
 
2013-01-03 04:22:40 PM
I didn't expect to see allies so willing to chime in and let this guy know that his hate speech wouldn't be tolerated.

We've hit a critical mass of gay tolerance and acceptance in this country. People aren't afraid to speak out against bigotry in public because they are fairly certain they won't be alone in the fight.

Oh yeah, I can remember literally zeroes of times when a guy and a girl held hands and stood close together, and people snarled at them.

Was this pizza place in one of the more gentrified parts of town? Because I'd expect to happen there. As in if I made a homophobic remark at a pizza place over on the west side of Michigan, I'd expect good odds everyone agrees with me. If I made it in Ann Arbor, I'd expect my ass to be kicked out of the establishment.

i would imagine that the gayest part of Columbus is akin to the normal part of SF, where gay bashing still happens and people still dont get involved.  Most people avoid confrontation, especially when they're not the one being confronted. they just stand there and hope it goes away. Good on these folks for not putting up with it.

Maybe "always assume John Quiñones is watching" is a good rule of thumb in life.

Anyway, chalk me up for another vote for "this isn't incredible at all." Stonewall was over 40 years ago. Society has changed, maybe not as far as it needs to go, but it's changed.

No, I confess I have not, and couint myself fortunate for the dearth of experience.  Little story, though.  Back in 1980 (yes I'm that old), I encountered the local "preacher" who liked to wander onto campus and thunder denunciation at the students.  Calling all the girls "whores" and "Jezebels" and so on.  He was generally ignored, which is the best thing to do, always.  Creeps should be ignored.  But I do remember standing at the corner once waiting for the light to change, when he was up on his soapbox doing his thing, and he shouted "whore" at one girl in particular who was being escorted by a very large individual of the male variety.  You could see the guy's jaw set; if he'd been wearing a bowler hat, I think he would have shoved it back on his head.  He took about two steps toward the preacher, who then backpedaled off of his soapbox, lost his balance, and bang down he went on his butt.

Everybody roared with laughter.  Then everybody walked away.  Good for a momentary laugh, Mr. Hate Preacher, but nobody has any more time for you than that.

The end.
