Isn't wine already gay friendly?

Marine1: Kind of what I was wondering.

And here's my camp.  There's non-gay-friendly wine?  From the gays I've known, alcohol in general is gay-friendly.

Personally, I find it straight-friendly, too.

Unless there's a red blend called "red like the blood of an HIV postive barebacking queer", I am unaware of any homophobia in the California wine industry. I mean.... It's the wine industry.

Could you imagine being able to run a business that treated its employees' and customers' race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, marital status, spawning or non-spawning as none of its concern and did not have to pander to any of it?

What a great world it would be.

theknuckler_33: Gay friendly?  I object to this label as it insinuates that unless you put a pro-gay label on your wine you are not gay friendly (or gay unfriendly). Do we now have to have a problem with politically agnostic businesses? Especially small businesses like the many California wineries?

Object to something worthwhile.

ten foiled hats: Satanic_Hamster: In my defense, I was drinking when I submitted this.

Yes, but was what you were drinking gay-friendly?  And what do you mean you WERE drinking?  This is Sunday.  The Lord's day.  It should be I AM drinking.

/cue Hedberg "used to do drugs", etc.

Maybe gay friendly wine just has a different shaped bottle.

Well, this is at odds with the gay-hostile cheese industry.

Does the cork fit in the bottle?

OgreMagi: People will fall for the dumbest marketing bullshiat.

Beer, wine, and liquor, especially.

Had a guy recently come in and order a Bud Light Lime. We don't carry it, so I offered him a Bud Light with a lime, like the pilgrims drank it (just a dumb joke I always say). He switched to Grey Goose. Dude was a marketing major's wet dream.

Newcastle has a good sense of humor about it:

To be, or not to be, that is the question....which subby answered by leaving "be" out of "to be made in California".
