Quote# 83310

If I am shopping and the Clerk is LGBST. I find the manager and tell them “ Sorry but due to the fact you hire LGBST, I will no longer shop here.

It will just take a few people to stand up against the LGBST and say we will not spend our money to support thier life style and the stores will get the message.

And for most people, it doesn't matter what the sexual orientation of the employees are where they shop.

So you only buy stores run by asexuals? Good luck with that.

And fuck you for using the name of an awesome Simpson character.

HOW the FUCK would you know if someone was LGBT by looking at them you FUCKING bigot?
And why the fuck would anyone care about your bigotry in not shopping at an equal opportunity employer store?

If you came into the store I used to work at and came to me with that complaint I would have said " Oh,that's too bad. I didn't know you were a bigot. We don't serve your kind here. I'd suggest you shop elsewhere."

So basically you're telling managers "I'm a small, bigoted a**hole. You probably won't notice my not shopping here.

And I'm sure that if one of those store employees refused to serve you on the basis of you being a bigoted piece of shit, you'd whine and bitch and moan about victimisation and intolerance, wouldn't you?

8/20/2011 2:18:10 PM



Haha, you're a bigot.

I call bullshit.

The only time Mr. "McClure" here says that to the manager of a store is at home, alone, locked in his bedroom, naked with a bottle of hand lotion and a fantasy of "sticking it" to those damn gays.

Let's try another version:

If I am shopping and the clerk is a Baptist, I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire Baptists, I will no longer shop here."

It will just take a few people to stand up against the Baptists and say we will not spend our money to support their life style and the stores will get the message.


What's the difference between being a Baptist and being LGBT?

Being a Baptist is a matter of choice.

If I am shopping and the Clerk is a jew. I find the manager and tell them “ Sorry but due to the fact you hire jews, I will no longer shop here.

It will just take a few people to stand up against the jews and say we will not spend our money to support thier life style and the stores will get the message.

-----------------

If I am shopping and the Clerk is a gipsy. I find the manager and tell them “ Sorry but due to the fact you hire gipsies, I will no longer shop here.

It will just take a few people to stand up against the gypsies and say we will not spend our money to support thier life style and the stores will get the message.

If I am shopping and the Clerk is an Illuminati. I find the manager and tell them “ Sorry but due to the fact you hire Illuminati, I will no longer shop here.

It will just take a few people to stand up against the Illuminati and say we will not spend our money to support thier life style and the stores will get the message.

See, where you are going, troy Mclure?

Gotta admit it can be a bit uncomfortable, my Nephew took me shopping a few weeks ago because we were also looking for some clothes for him. Both the cashier and bagger at the grocery store were "flaming" gay and unabashed about it.

The comments they made between each other were oblique but very insulting, they assumed that we were both gay and that I was the sugardaddy of this 22 year old (my own nephew).

I could not wait to get out of there because I was very scared of what would happen if my nephew twigged to what they were saying about him. Thank goodness he was wandering around the store front instead of listening and seemingly had no clue. (he is about 6'2' and 270')

I'm glad that we as a society have progressed to the point where most gays are comfortable in "coming out," but I have to tell you that just another incident or two like that will be making me wish you were all back in the closet again.

Professionalism? Customer service? Respect? Acting on biased assumptions? Hello?...

@ausador

Guess what good looking young women have had to put up with for ages? Yup, lots of aggressive sexual comments from men of all ages; at work, on the street, basically everywhere, and, yes, at the grocery store.

Maybe it would be refreshing for them if heterosexual men like that took a time out in the closet for a change.

There's a very good reason we have all those new sexual harassment guidelines. You've just had your first experience on the bad side of it.

Oh, and yes, gays have had to put up with openly homophobic remarks forever too.

Think about it.

@ausador

Inappropriate behavior has jackshit to do with sexual orientation. If that was your 22-year-old niece and two straight male clerks did that, would you want all heterosexuals "back in the closet"?

What about "LGBST" [sic] people like me who most people don't place as such at first glance?

Unfortunately for you, most of us either naturally "pass" for non-queer or have learnt how to in public because of bigots like you. Furthermore, many other people that you jackasses would place as queer actually aren't.

Seriously, are employers even allowed to ask what an applicant's sexual orientation is? I've never been asked that I can recall.

Why is it that I have this sneaking suspicion that ausador is this McClure guy and is now trying the stale internet tactic of making something up to try to sway people to his viewpoint?

I will admit though, trying to make your nephew out to be a tough guy instead of yourself is a new development. Sad, but I suppose it's a break from the usual internet tough guy dreck.

On topic though, the problem with this McClure fellow is that even if he were to actually possess the conviction to go through with a boycott, it's clear that it would be for nothing. Businesses that follow his ideal suffer massive backlash, and rightly so (for instance, that bridal shop in New Jersey). Therefore, I'm sure any smart businesses would prefer the loss of the unsavory types such as McClure, rather than the loss of everyone else and potential lawsuits.

Here's a few more plans for bigots:

If I am shopping and the Clerk is black. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire nig*ers, I will no longer shop here".

If I am shopping and the Clerk is Jewish. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire sheenies, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is Irish. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire micks, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is German. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire krauts, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is Italian. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire dagos, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is French. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire frogs, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is southern. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire rednecks, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is Asian. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire slants, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is Indian. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire dot-heads, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is Hispanic. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire spicks, I will no longer shop here."

If I am shopping and the Clerk is Polish. I find the manager and tell them "Sorry but due to the fact you hire pollacks, I will no longer shop here."

I guess we could keep going ...

I'm calling Poe. The fact that his username is a character with a fish fetish just makes me too suspicious to take this seriously.

Hey, dickhead!

If you can tell on sight that someone's not straight, can I borrow your gaydar? It's kind of the best I've ever seen.

Of course, you're still a dickhead.

In the US, no.

Wait, I know what LGBT is, but what's LGBST?
Also, how will this guy be able to tell whether the person is gay or straight just by looking at them? Certainly not by the clothes they wear, clerks have to wear uniforms. And most places have a policy against body piercings.

8/20/2011 8:17:53 PM

Ha ha, no. That's what you'd LIKE to say.

What you do in real life is shamble up to the counter, refuse to meet the clerk's eyes, furtively pay without saying anything, and mumble "thank you," under your breath when you get your change back, after which you scurry off home with your tail tucked securely between your legs, where you'll try to convince yourself you actually matter by playing up what a tough-guy, he-man-type you actually are online and bitching to other like-minded souls on the internet.
