  2. Not having all the facts on the "ass-grabbing" case I will say that as a gay man I don't like to be grabbed just because I go to a gay bar. If a straight guy grabbed a woman's ass or boobs in a straight bar there would be trouble.

  3. The Gay nightclub inside Resorts International Hotel Casino will be very interesting to those of us who live in the tri-state area. Will it have a truly open-door policy? Will the decisions about who's DJaying the music confirm an "open to everyone" policy? The last thing in the world Resorts would want is a discrimination lawsuit.

    We'll see.

    Well the gay guy grabbed him first, and so then the straight guy retaliated in a non-violent, and pretty funny, way. I don't see the problem here. The gay guy should keep his hands to himself. I know not to go around grabbing straight people... or any people. Show some respect.

  5. @Eric26, re "the straight guy retaliated in a non-violent, and pretty funny, way"

    I wouldn't call headbutting someone non-violent or funny (although the way it was described was pretty funny).

    In any case, though, it sounds like the ass-grabber got what was coming to him. Guys (gay and straight): don't go around grabbing strangers. We (the strangers) REALLY don't like it.

  6. Oops, I totally misread it. It wasn't violent at all, he really did just smoosh his face into the other guy's face.

  7. I get grabbed every time I go out. I thought it was normal?

  9. @MAX
    It is, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't karate chop someone's wrist when they do it. I have to admit, I really enjoy the shocked expression on some pervert's face after I've (mildly) bruised his wrist. I don't go around scowling at people and perpetuating the myth of hotheaded, sassy redheads for nothing.

  10. The Tony Kushner scandal is despicable. Join where you can support Israel without being a Fascist.

  11. Back in the day when I clubbed, before most of you youngsters were born, the best way to get rid of an ass grabber was to step up to the bar for a cocktail, where they thought you were trapped, and step back on the trolls foot, real hard. Boots helped.

    After they screamed, I would turn and give a poor innocent, 'Why I'm soooo sorry'.

    That still sounds like a pretty good idea to me. Thanks for the tip!

  13. The Tony Kushner scandal is despicable. Join the thousands of Americans who refuse to be intellectually colonized by Israel and its lock-step supporters in the American media:

  14. Thanks CHRISTOPHER. I'm glad this issue is outing people like Mr. Wiesenfeld and his Nazi-istic views. Irony at its worst.

  15. David R., JStreet is not pro-Israel at all. You "progressive," Israel-bashing leftists are only fooling yourselves.
