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?

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"?

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 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.

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.

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.

As a native of Ohio from Columbus's god-fearing, straight-laced, good old fashioned ignorant cousin to the southwest (Greater Cincinnati) I have to say that if the same thing happened here and I spoke up to tell the hater that that he should keep his hate to himself, the most likely outcome for me would be a group ass-whoopin. Of course, it would depend slightly on what part of town, but in general, this is an irritatingly conservative, backward city.

Another hour away in Lexington or Louisville and I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the same outcome as Louisville.

I was in line for a midnight screening of The Hobbit with my girlfriend holding hands with her when the two frat bros behind us piped up that it was "hot" and urged us to kiss each other.

I got pissed and told them that we weren't there to be their private porno, but Lynette said "fark 'em" and gave me a sloppy tongue-kiss that made their eyes (and mine) bug out. Then she asked if they were happy, and they said "fark yeah". Then cloud-of-Axe bro asks smarmily me if it was his turn now, and I told him that I don't do the cawk, especially when I have such a yummy partner for the taking, and then I leaned in to nibble her neck as a fark you which made them groan comically.

She laughed and ran her ice cold hand up my shirt, and I yelped-which made them laugh and also killed my erection.

Plus the 3-D gave me a headache.

2013-01-03 04:48:54 PM

serial_crusher: scottydoesntknow: 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"?

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.


the history of the word is queer.
 
2013-01-03 04:48:54 PM

serial_crusher: 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


Try reading the farking article.

It was really cold so Ethan and I were holding hands and standing close together to keep warm, we were laughing and joking about all the fun we'd had that night, when all of the sudden the guy in front of us turns around and tells us to cut our "gay shiat" out.


This asshole decided he had the right to tell other people how to behave - people who were BEHIND HIM and just talking while huddling for warmth.

true, but how many times have you known somebody to do something obnoxious, then say "oh I'm just standing here in line minding my own business!"  No jackass, you were standing there in line drunkenly singing/slurring Whitesnakes "Here I Go Again On My Own" (yes, I know that's not the actual title of the song, but you seem to have invented a new song composed solely of that song's chorus, so it deserves a new title) at the top of your lungs.  That's not "minding your own business".  Cut that gay shiat out, Mr. Drunk Guy In The Pizza Line

Holding hands and standing close on a cold night while waiting in line == PDA? Kinda of uptight IMO, but if that is really too much affection and it weirds you out, then asking them politely to stop without incorporating a sexual orientation slur would not, in fact, be considered hate speech by most people. That's not what happened here though. Great hypothetical thought exercise though! Keep it up, this is fun!

Riiiiiiiiiiight, because anyone that isn't afraid to say out loud that they find the idea of two males coupling to be disgusting, and unnatural must therefore be AFRAID of it or even worse, they must be gay themselves!


I find lots of things "unnatural" and "disgusting." But I have enough class to keep the comments myself. I also don't differentiate between conversations between opposite-sex and same-sex couples when I'm eavesdropping.

I hope that, one day, you can relinquish your own bigotry and derp.


You do realize that if you had any class at all you wouldn't have said anything about bigots or homophobes, right mr. hypocrite? Once again I retort that you flinging your overused and abusive names at me does not make them true. Nobody can tell another that they have to accept homosexuality. I don't care what the hell 2 consenting adults do in their own home but I don't run around proclaiming my love of hirstute women at the top of my lungs because you are correct, it's vulgar and in poor taste to behave that way so take your gay pride and political correctness and shove it right back in your closet.

Something about this story bothers me and I'm not sure what it is.

In the main, things worked like they should have, I think, In a free society. I really like the notion of the group shunning the idiot and the business owner refusing service - the fact that it was a moment of real anarcho-capitalism that just flared. Notice that there was no other authority present than the collective, momentary authority of a spontaneously formed group.

I think the thing that might bother me is the reaction, too, though. While the story is not very detailed, in my ideal world, there would have been any number of compromises or bids for understanding at least. Homogenization (no pun intended) with the described banishment is less good than tacit acceptance of differences - or even a detente.

So many have commented that it would/could have played out differently in different neighborhoods and I'm okay with that on some level. What I do not want is homogenization of our culture by fiat and force. I like people having different cultures and holding different values and even having them localized to different places. This distinction of differences, respect, and detente is probably a little too nuanced to try to defend on Fark, but I'd have liked to see this have played out differently. No consensus, but coexistence.

At least the first move being something like, "I get it - you don't like gays, but buddy, you're in a pretty gay neighborhood. This is where we live and eat, etc. I don't go into your neighborhood and complain about guys in plaid shirts or dirty workboots. We'll probably never be friends, but can we agree to be civil to each other, get our pizza, and go on our separate ways?" That may or may not have been effective, but I'd like to have seen it tried - and in every appropriate case, not just this one. That, to me, is real diversity and tolerance.

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

My wife and I aren't the same race and live in Texas... you'll have to add a pretty large number in front of those zeros if you hang out with a couple like us.

Funnily enough, I have a similar story to the one above except it involves my sister who spat vitriol at us in a public restaurant before the patrons and business people drove her off and apologized to us.

Dude, pizza isn't lobster crab or seafood.
There is NO specific LOCATION which makes pizza good.
Someone in Chicago can make a shiat Chicago-style pie even though they're in Chicago.
It's NOT the location that makes it good, it's the chef and the recipe.

Yes certain regions have their preferred styles, but someone can make a good pie, and make it ANYWHERE.
So don't be an obtuse douche.

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"?

incorrect. yeast is exceptionally susceptible to the location. even if i imported new york yeast to make a new york pizza somewhere else, it would adopt to the local climate in a matter of days, making it impossible to create a new york pizza outside of new york.

breads are probably the most vulnerable foodstuffs to location.

justGreg: The problem is when you declare someone to be subhuman and beneath contempt (as the antagonist in the article effectively did), then it is kind of hard to just "agree to disagree." You present your solution as balanced, but it really isn't, is it?


I don't agree that the bigot was subhuman, though, nor was he beneath contempt. We'd feel that way about many of our ancestors and I think that their bigotry was a product of their upbringing, yet were we somehow able to meet them, we'd probably find a way to look past that crap and have a conversation. Further, if you ever travel, you'll meet continents of people who you might be inclined to call "subhuman" or "beneath contempt" if they were to share every view that they had with you. Worse, there are many around the world who might and do call us those same things. Yet that doesn't make any of us less human. I don't think it's a defensible position to call people subhuman who don't agree with you. And maybe that's part of my point. We're all human - even the bigot in the story - and irrespective to what's said to us, I'd like to think that I'd try reason before banishment...or worse.

I don't disagree that it probably wouldn't have played out in a way that I'd have liked. Note, though, that in my post I lamented the fact that a possible compromise wasn't the first step. And I don't find that unbalanced on any level.

To finish this off, imagine the story that the bigot is telling today. Something like, "I got run off by a bunch of gays" vs. the story that he probably wouldn't tell had it gone the way I'd hoped in my imagination ("Damn, the gays were civil to me when I was being an asshole").

Don't get me wrong. I do think that there's a time and a place for defending yourself - even violently if you have to. But the crowd moving with what may have been a perceived threat of violence (or at least open hostility) as the first play is less good in my book than offering detente first.

Finally, I'm kind of torn on this anyway. Gays have been abused (curb stomping in SLC earlier this year that really got my hackles up) for far too long and the story in the thread is a good one to mark progress and even to feel good about in the main. I'm probably picking nits with my criticism, but it's a conceptual principle that I'm working at and I do think that there's something to it.

Kibbler: serial_crusher: 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

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.

Zeroes of times.


It happened to me when I was in the Castro district of San Francisco with a date.  The "militant gays" seem to think that they own that part of the City and dislike straights who wander into their territory.  Note, this is the exception, not the rule.  The vast majority of gays don't care.

ciberido: DmGdDawg: So someone telling them to stop with the gay public displays of affection and that's "hate speech?"

Yes.

They CAN learn!


I was at the DMV and two white guys next to me were narrating the goings-on of two hispanic dudes at the teller counter. I couldn't make out everything, but it was derisive and unnecessary. I sat there reading my Tolkein, just hoping they'd directly address me with some ignorant shiat, because I ALWAYS attract the assholes who think I'm "one of them." Alas, they seemed to tone it down and kept whatever shiat they were talking to themselves. Non-story, bro.

I think you have to appreciate that for gay people over the age of 20, being defended by strangers is a new experience. There was a time you could get the shiat beaten out of you and nobody in town would even care.

Author did drama it up quite a bit, though.

Xaneidolon: Something about this story bothers me and I'm not sure what it is.

In the main, things worked like they should have, I think, In a free society. I really like the notion of the group shunning the idiot and the business owner refusing service - the fact that it was a moment of real anarcho-capitalism that just flared. Notice that there was no other authority present than the collective, momentary authority of a spontaneously formed group.

I think the thing that might bother me is the reaction, too, though. While the story is not very detailed, in my ideal world, there would have been any number of compromises or bids for understanding at least. Homogenization (no pun intended) with the described banishment is less good than tacit acceptance of differences - or even a detente.

So many have commented that it would/could have played out differently in different neighborhoods and I'm okay with that on some level. What I do not want is homogenization of our culture by fiat and force. I like people having different cultures and holding different values and even having them localized to different places. This distinction of differences, respect, and detente is probably a little too nuanced to try to defend on Fark, but I'd have liked to see this have played out differently. No consensus, but coexistence.

At least the first move being something like, "I get it - you don't like gays, but buddy, you're in a pretty gay neighborhood. This is where we live and eat, etc. I don't go into your neighborhood and complain about guys in plaid shirts or dirty workboots. We'll probably never be friends, but can we agree to be civil to each other, get our pizza, and go on our separate ways?" That may or may not have been effective, but I'd like to have seen it tried - and in every appropriate case, not just this one. That, to me, is real diversity and tolerance.


You know how I can tell that you're probably not gay, a woman or a minority?

For the sake of argument, let's assume that you're right and that people should not free to (be) intolerant and bigoted and hateful. Let's also assume that many in this country are. What do you propose to remedy the situation?

Maybe they are free to be that way and you're calling Maun out for conflating having certain views and expressing certain views? But if someone is free to have certain views, how is it not freedom of speech to express these views?

Meh, gay is a word, like any other, and it can have multiple meanings.

South Park covered it:

As did Penn & Teller(well, "cursing in general") in the Humbug! episode.

Etiquette Police are lame.

Sure, the guy was an asshole, maybe. The article really provide that many details as to make a very clear judgement, making many people here a bit on the prejudice side themselves. He was "berating" them, but the best example of how deplorable this guy is is having used the "g" word...I'm not sold.

If it sounded like Mr. Slave and Missus Harrison having a flamboyant conversation too loudly, I can see getting annoyed by it. Same as straight and proud jocks are as annoying as shiat when the get loud and bubbly.

Being X orientation does not exclude the possibility that some people are simply too inconsiderately obnoxious to tolerate. We've never been in line with people "simply having fun" that we'd rather not be so loud and annoying? Not even someone's snot nosed crotchfruit being a genuine public nuisance?

The guy was likely a bigoted asshole, but still, the concept bears mentioning as the thread is more of a general discussion.

You get an interesting perspective on all this if you are "one of THEM" but look like you're "one of US": a light-skinned black woman, for example, or a gay man who "doesn't look gay."  There are a lot of people who won't display their bigotry in mixed company but are happy enough to pull out the racist or homophobic jokes when they think they're among like-minded people.

There's a danger to what you are suggesting.  That danger is only what is acceptable is tolerated.  Using that logic, promoting gay rights at one time would have been considered unacceptable and could be prohibited.  Promoting equal rights for all races would have been illegal (and it was in some places).

No, you must accept speech you find repugnant if you believe in freedom of speech.  The cure for bad speech is not censorship.  It is MORE speech, which is exactly what happened in the linked story.  It works.

Never been to a "christian" university, have you?

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.

Mikeys has excellent pizza. Their 'sl*t sauce' is the bomb.

As a gay male who came out in the 80's, this IS a big deal to have community support. Why should I not be able to hold hands with my loved one like you can with yours? Certainly that is not a sexually explicit display of affection. This article was making note that times and perceptions are indeed changing.

If you feel that you have the right to hold hands with your loved one but don't feel that others have that same right of expression, there's a problem, and it is with you. If you think your affection is 'better' than mine, you're wrong.

"Why do stories about GAY people always get 'Hero' tags when there's nothing special about them!? It's not fair! Just because they're forced to endure the effects of an all too common social stigma on a regular basis, why should THEY get special treatment?? If someone told ME to 'cut that straight shiat out' while I was holding hands with my girlfriend in public, I wouldn't care, not because nobody in the history of ever has said that with any amount of seriousness, but because I'm just so AWESOME and I love it when people think it's OK to be hateful towards me and the person I love simply because we were holding hands.

"Look at meeeee!!! People have negative attitudes about my personal sexual preference! It's oppression!!!"

We all encounter rudeness and idiots on a daily basis, but if direscted towards a homosexual, then of course it's an affront to all society. Yawn.

Kibbler: Allen. The end.: Kibbler: serial_crusher: 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

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.

Zeroes of times.

Never been to a "christian" university, have you?

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.


Was the preacher's name Jeb? That was the name of the jerk who came to our campus in the early '80s. He also insulted a girl with a very large boyfriend who had a couple of his rugby buddies with him. They picked up Jeb and threw him in the moat. Pretty much, though, Jeb was allowed to rant in relative peace. One of his common themes was that the prostitutes in the area couldn't stay in business because we women of the university were giving it away to anyone for free. Really made me want to avoid evangelicals.

maunderingcabal: Telling someone to not have an opinion is not free speech no mater how hateful it is.

If this was a real free society everyone would have been like "we'll. that's like. Your opinion man." And carried on or ignored him.

Being hateful to hates is no better than being hateful. Kill them with kindness or ignore them you farking political correctness fascists.

I support gay right. But I also supprt true Freedom of speech.


Pfft. No one took away the asshole's freedom of speech. Everyone else responded with their dissenting opinions (i.e. - their freedom of speech). So, in summary, freedom of speech for all, and no pizza for hateful assholes.

Mid_mo_mad_man: wyltoknow: Ohlookabutterfly: I don't care what the hell 2 consenting adults do in their own home but I don't run around proclaiming my love of hirstute women at the top of my lungs because you are correct, it's vulgar and in poor taste to behave that way so take your gay pride and political correctness and shove it right back in your closet.

If you were out with a very hairy woman and you two were holding hands and acting affectionate (not even groping each other or getting sexual), no one would be enough of an asshole to say "Hey that's gross, cut that out." Oh sure, someone might think it loudly. But they know they can't say anything because everyone else would call them out for being a judgmental dick. Society looks down on people who act outright rude and hateful in public, deal witht it.

I'm sorry but I would say something to anyone getting to friendly with each other. Don't want to see it


So, every time you see two people holding hands, you tell them to stop, because you don't want to see it? Somehow, I don't believe you.

ultraholland: ciberido: You get an interesting perspective on all this if you are "one of THEM" but look like you're "one of US"

Shiat, allow me to rephrase: I usually resemble "one of us." "One of them" is usually ascribed to the black or hispanic guys who agree with "our" sentiments (generally surrounding stupidity/laziness/welfare) which are resoundingly (and erroneously) race-based.


No, you're fine.   I think I'm the one who needs to rephrase.

You get an interesting perspective on all this if you are "one of THEM" (or you're "friendly" to "one of THEM") but look like you're "one of US".

Anyway, I think I got the point of your story.  Some white (non-Hispanic guys) were talking crap about Hispanics and you were there.  They might have assumed that you were "one of us" (meaning that they assumed you had the same attitude/racism) because you look white.

I was trying to be cute with the "one of THEM" and "one of US" stuff but I guess it was more confusing than anything else.

It's funny how often bigots rely on the false-consensus effect.  You run into it a lot if you call a bigot on their bigotry; they'll often say something like "Everybody's thinking what I'm saying" or "Everybdoy knows this but they're too politically correct to say it -- I'm the only one honest enough to say it out loud!"

The false-consensus effect is exactly why we need to confront homophobia and other forms of bigotry when we encounter them.  If we don't step up and tell the bigots that no, they aren't speaking for everybody, they'll go on thinking that they're they "only one honest enough to say out loud what's on everybody's mind."

Dude, pizza isn't lobster crab or seafood.
There is NO specific LOCATION which makes pizza good.
Someone in Chicago can make a shiat Chicago-style pie even though they're in Chicago.
It's NOT the location that makes it good, it's the chef and the recipe.

Yes certain regions have their preferred styles, but someone can make a good pie, and make it ANYWHERE.
So don't be an obtuse douche.
The OP wasn't saying ALL Columbus pizza is good, he was saying that THAT SPECIFIC purveyor was KNOWN to be good (why else would truck/street food have such a long line?)


What do you have, some sort of pizza inferiority complex?  Take it easy, name calling doesn't build your argument.

Plus, I wonder how differently a lobster that you've dropped into a pot of boiling water in Kansas would taste from one in Maine.

Second, never heard of a library sinking. Ours had a haunted stairwell from some underclassman committing suicide, but her roommate totally got straight A's that quarter.

Third, those preachers travel. Since this was the same time period, it could have been the same preacher. Do you think the Westboro Baptists have a lot of branches because the funerals they protest happen all over the country?

It's a freshness thing in that case.  I'm not a lobster expert, but I get the impression that driving from Maine to Kansas in a saltwater tank in the back of a truck might be a bit stressful on Mr. Lobster, and could cause some adverse effects on his health and ultimately his deliciousness.
Or you know, a lobster born in a hatchery in Kansas is going to taste different than one born in the ocean off northeast coast.

The pot's not calling the kettle anything here. It's stating the truth. Of course, you also think that when gays do anything in public they're screaming for attention and that they've never suffered fear, hatred, discrimination, oppression, loss of rights, and the risk of being beaten and murdered for their "crime" of loving someone with the same set of gonads, so it's understandable you're not very sharp.
