Ban On Straight People In Gay Venues???
# 1 : Tuesday 21-10-2003 @ 14:20
I love lava but I dont know if I agree with the no men rule.
I mean I had a discussion with a female friend of mine the other day and she said she didnt like the fact that the g let straight people in because of the way the girls react to lesbians. however i also get the twinge of a kind of elitest bulshit from that and since then i have been tossing it around in my head havent come to a decision but just wondering what you all think??
Thing is that is pure descrimination right? I just dont understand why she feels this way. I mean come on if we as gay people were barred from a pub it would be ridiculous right? there would be marches and the pub in question would probably end up in many problems. I know i sound really confused I'm trying to get it straight in my head and having a hard time.
please help me oh you clear headed people!

Are you saying that you prefer gay friendly bars to exclusively gay bars and that you want men at Lava?

What?? And what do I have to do if my gay friend wanna go in a gay pub? And whats all this thing with gay pub. There should be called simple PUB. I am straight myself but I dont make any diference between gays and straight. When you love, the race doesnt really matter. .
Actually I would love one of those klingonians women

This was discussed at the start when Lava opened (Fluff where are ya!!). I personally don't mind guys being in the ladies's clubs, but I also like the fact that there is at least one club that I can go to where there aren't men. Don't ask me why, its just a matter of comfort I suppose. But then it was cool to see the guys up on the dance floor in Kiss the other night. And sorry Andrew, it is a noble sentiment, but if you are not gay you don't have any idea what is it like to be in a "normal" pub and want to hold hands with your partner but then be asked to leave.

I still dont really understand what u are trying 2 say!! But if it is what I think what ur trying 2 say, then this is what I think (Phew, that was really tough 2 type!!) I think straight people should b allowed in 2 Gay venues, why sholdnt they? Most straight people that do go 2 gay venues are more than likely going with friends who are gay, as in they arent been forced 2 go in. Im sure they arent going in to cause trouble, and pass bitchy comments. If all gay people were banned from going 2 straight pubs there would b chaos and we would never hear d end of it!! So I guess what Im trying 2 say is... let d straight people in.. kick em out if they are causing trouble!!

I know what you mean. But still what if I want to go out with my friend? Are they gonna split us at the entrance??? Sad screaming..NOOOO..dont leave meeee.....bouncers trying to separate us..ahh jaysus..I'm crying.
They should just send out the eejits..becouse there is no difference between gay or straight. The only diference its between idiots and normal persons.

i think it would be stupid if straight people weren't aloud into clubs cos they're straight. THe majority of my friends are straight and they're cool with those of us that are gay so why shouldn't they be aloud if they're cool with it and cause no trouble?
Caddy were you asked to leave somewhere cos you held your girlfriends hand in public? Sorry if i got that wrong but all rosered's happy faces rolling around on the screen were making me dizzy!!!
