Many times, people with just mind their own business when something rude happens. You know, don't want to get involved.

I have learned it only takes one person to stand up for everyone else to back you up, especially when you are 100% right.

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 think I experienced this scenario in the late '80s here in Toronto. Gay men here stopped backing down and starting swinging (or just making witty comebacks) at least 30 years ago.
 
2013-01-03 04:39:27 PM
Use of the hero tag here? That is so gay.
Kidding.....

Would it be an article if a straight couple were told to 'cut that straight shiat off' by a gay person? Probably not as the fellow gays in line would start in on the straights, mob mentality....

I was walking down the street in SF with my brother, and threw my arm over his shoulder. A bunch of asian kids in a ricer drove by and yelled something homophobic. I couldn't believe a bunch of retards could be so insensitive.

scottydoesntknow: 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

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"?


Oh stop being gay.

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.


Nice!

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 04:43:41 PM
Gross. That never would have happened around here, even though it was only 3-4 hours away. Columbus is pretty much a shiathole, though. I'd rather go to many parts of detroit than columbus.

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


The "incredible" part could be that a gay-hating asshole just happens to be in a very gay community.

Holding hands may not be so bad but I was speaking in general. I've lost count of couples I've caught making out or having sex at work.

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.

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.
