Yeah, I am totally guilty of misleading headlines. In any case, it's not even a gay person that is being defended here, it's a transgendered woman. It
was on the show "what would you do".
Basically, they have a transgendered waitress work at a diner, their actor, poses as a long term customer that was on vacation for a year. He hears
that the waitress recently went from boy to girl, and he starts ripping the waitress at the diner. Verbal insults, etc.
In more than one case, a gentleman in the restaurant protected the waitress. In one case, a fellow walked over from the other side of the diner, to
tell the actor to shut his mouth.
In another case, a gentleman about to leave, decides he is going to stay, order a coffee just to protect the waitress.
You can watch it here:
I don't really care about the LBGT issue that much, not something that means much to me either way. As I don't have any family members or close
friends affected by their issues.
I can say though, I would have done the same thing in this situation. It should make people proud to be American. This same thing, or same behaviour
(being different) could get you beaten to death in some places of the world. And the guy clearly being an A-Hole, might be applauded there. Thank god
it isn't in your country.
People should honestly feel good about the types of people in your country, when a test like this brings out this behaviour.
Thought it was due, after someone recently posted a thread with a TSA agent harassing a gay judge and his husband. And people ought to remember, if
you want to come from a classy place, you need to be classy yourself.
Keep it classy San Diego
