Honestly, that's what I call a cool story bro. Such a riveting tale, I honestly copy and pasted it to word, saved on my hard drive, backed it up on a jump drive, drove to the bank, put the jump drive in the safe deposit box, and will leave it there until my kids turn about 12 (when they can actually state their age, and ask what it is I'm showing them), when I will pick it up, put it in an old USB drive reader and relay this cool story to them and tell them, "kids, this is what a cool story should look and sound like...not like the stories your generation tells.

brap: 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.


The other ten percent were due to your roaming hands, you cad.

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.

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.

jackiepaper: 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.


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.

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


they were HOLDING HANDS YOU GODDAM NITWIT. they werent having public buttsecks. hell, they werent even pecking on the cheek, let alone making out. they were laughing and holding hands.

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.

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.

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?
