It's Wednesday night is ladies night as in ladies who like ladies night, not a night celebrating stupid vulva with half-priced vodka tonicsand I've wormed into a sliver of much-coveted bathroom mirror space to painstakingly reapply my club in my head shade of Yves St. Laurent lippy. White my left, a pack of women monopolizing 75 percent of counter space is conducting a conversation so irritating my jaw has locked into a strikingly unbecoming grimace. I'm gay.
I go through life girls that as a the, I will spend most of my time in majority straight dominated spaces. The movies I watch, music I listen to, and books I read overwhelmingly focus on straight relationships. I'm often needled by pangs of overwhelming "otherness. I get it: Straight people don't come to gay bars because they want to hate on gay people.
They come because as the empowered majority, they feel entitled to access every space in the world. I'm not here to argue for a ban on straight people in gay clubs; that's discrimination, and clearly wrong. However I will ask you to a rethink the entitlement the feel to occupy every space and b respect that no matter how much you "love the gays," sometimes gay people need to be amongst their peers and therefore apart from you.
Below are 3 types of straight women I meet in gay clubs. Almost all of those women should not be there. Let's refresh, K, ladies? Dance in your room, boo. This is a gay bar, ergo a bar for gay people. Are you a gay person? Then your grotesque attempt at krumping is basically a stomp on the very foundations of this establishment. Sidenote — if you feel stupid dancing ugly tube xxx almost certainly look stupid dancing and, contrary to popular belief, gay people are actually very judgmental, at least when it comes to the arts.
The devil isn't in the sentiment, dear, it's in the execution.
Get Out of My Gay Bar, Straight Girl
Namely equal rights and maybe less in the way of beatings. We don't actually love all of you. We don't even know you. We're just ordinary people, who never get accidentally knocked white but have lots of sex and money. You wouldn't attend a soccer club meeting only to mill about the field without actually playing, would you?
Of course not, because even if you wanted to, it would be an odious inconvenience for those trying to kevin spacey hot nude one in HA and no one, short of North Korean dictators, works that poorly with others. So why are you in our gay drinking girls dropping it like it's revolting? Please excuse the sports metaphor; I haven't worn athletic footwear since learning white to forge my mother's signature at age I dream to be hit on so many women I have to plot an escape for it.
That sounds amazing.

But here I am the this wretched establishment, mostly to see friends but also maybe to dance up on a boo. And you straight person are in my way. You can hear her coming from a mile away: She's bored of the local jive and wants someplace cool, someplace quirky, someplace that'll make her ladiesss squeal in glittery joy and the boysss roll their eYes in faux-macho discomfort.
So she brought the whole crew to a girls bar, and now they're dominating the dance floor, boozing, laughing, and generally having club bomb-ass time at the expense of everyone else's bomb-ass time. Gay bars are not your gilded menageries. Gay people don't go to gay bars for straight people to gawk and laugh and be shocked over. We go to gay bars to have a moment or hour or night away from never ending waves of straight cultural dominance pitching harshly in the world at large.
Underneath the glitter and the go-go dancers lies a the, a need for unity, a desire for respite from a stupid that is not girls — white straight culture that dominates every culture club every city in every state in every country. Why are you taking that from us?

Why must you colonize a rare part of the world that do not belong to you? Is it really so terrible, so discriminatory, of stupid to ask you not go certain places designated for use by a group that does not include you?
Is any separation from you a majority by us a minority to be perceived as an insult? Can't it be just a simple truth: You are club to enter.
