Leave ‘Public’ Bar Alone And Let’s End Gay Youth Suicide.
PublishedApril 24, 2012
Gods, I am tired of MSM getting non-stories off social media and making them into a big deal as if ‘kissing in straight bars’ is actually an important issue facing gay people???? So some angry girls posted on Public’s Facebook page saying they were kicked out for pashing, complained and somehow this has become a ‘story that needs telling’. WRONGED WOMEN FEATURED HERE…..
Who to believe? Does it really, actually matter? This seems to be a 2 second piece of shit incident that happens in bars every night around the country. Attaching the ‘anti-gay complaint’ seems to have got the MSM talking about it, but is this an issue that needs addressing? Is this the biggest issue facing gay youth in this country? Why has this become the ‘story de jour’?
Whilst gay men are still getting murdered, whilst the Transexual community have to fight for any right, especially legal recognition. Whilst gay, bisexual, lesbian and transexual youth are killing themselves in such huge numbers in new zealand, is this story a ‘fight needed’?
BUT THE REAL QUESTION IS WHAT IS HOPED TO BE ACHIEVED BY ATTACKING ‘PUBLIC’ BAR? SO GAY PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO PASH IN TACKY BARS? THAT PUBLIC DISPLAYS OF AFFECTION BY GAY PEOPLE WILL INCREASE AND THIS WILL STOP SUICIDE? THAT GAY PEOPLE KISSING IN PUBLIC WILL END GAY MEN BEING MURDERED AND ‘THE GAY PANIC’ DEFENSE BEING USED?
WHILE THIS CAMPAIGN SEEMS FOCUSED ON ONE MANS ACTIONS IN ONE BAR, I REFUSE TO SUPPORT IT, AS IT HAS NO FOCUS AND WILL ACHIEVE WHAT?
UPDATE – HOW UNSURPRISING UNI Q GAVE THEM ‘ADVICE’. BAD AS PER USUAL FROM THAT GROUP. AND I JUST DO NOT GIVE MY MONEY TO BARS WITH SECOND RATE STAFF WHO DO NOT WANT GAY MONEY. THAT WORKS AS WELL.
