    Yeah, depending on the region I can see this. But the same applies in reverse also.

    Where did I say that I believed that? And btw, serving someone a pizza and catering a wedding reception are two different things.

    You apparently have not read the thread. They shut down due to people threatening them with violence.

    Plus that post did not respond to what you are saying here. It was a response to someone that refused to believe that pizza was sold at wedding receptions.

    If being gay were visibly obvious, you'd see this sort of discrimination a lot more.
    Yeah that's really the only reason the two civil rights movements aren't identical, although where they were visible (stonewall for instance) there was indeed police brutality, lost employment and housing, expulsion, hate crimes

    I call bull**** on this. One day they announce they won't be serving teh gheys, the next they claim harassment and threats, and the day after that they rake in $200,000. Sorry to be the forum's cynic here.

    To be honest, though, I'm probably just the littlest bit jealous I didn't think of this scam first.

    They have reopened and have collected over 300K in donations from the wonderful silent majority.

    It's a club. They can do that. I doubt the Tea Party caucus allows liberals to attend their meetings.
    Any time there's a gay cruise/frat/bar/whatever, it's for the same purpose as anything else - gathering people with common interest who might not otherwise find each other. If there's a 2nd purpose it's because of the difficulty of integrating into similar groups in the broader society. Never is the intent to exclude friendly heterosexuals. In fact, the nearest "gay bar" is about 50% hetero on a typical night
