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

With sensationalist headlines like that you should be writing for the tabloids.
Sure to garner attention.

I like the sentiment of the content though.

At least my first line was a disclaimer.



The video really moved me, which is why I posted it.
I figured this headline might grab some people who wouldn't have acted like the stand up gents in the vid, which is a good thing. People that would act like the actor (ass) should see this kind of thing as well.

Just for the record, it is now LBGTQ.

They added the Q for question in relation to those that are thinking about it.

By the same token though, the customer has the right to his opinion, ignorant or not, as long as he doesn't break the law, he is perfectly welcome to voice his opinion and display his ignorance.

I know gays, bi, lesbians, etc. I'm cool with it. I may not understand gay or bi dudes, but hey, to each their own. (lesbians and bi females I get...they like what I like, so can't complain)...


Transgenders? I just don't get them at all. My own theory is that a soul can either tend to be male, female, or has been both so many times, it doesn't care. So, regardless of the body born into, the soul just goes with what it tends towards. Good a theory as any I suppose. I'm pretty sure I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body.

You're always entitled to your opinion, but that doesn't mean it's going to be well received. Put it this way, 50 years ago, the dissenting opinion would have been the opposite.

It's good to see people standing up for each other and protecting their freedom of expression.

If any of the guys there got physical, they'd be crossing the line, but they simply said that opinion was't welcome. And while you have your right to express your opinion, that doesn't mean it's wanted or appreciated.

Expressing how you choose to live, that's a choice that affects you. People can go along about their business and ignore. The actors choice of expression directly interfered with someone else's choice in how they live.

One is stepping on the other. But he was allowed to be a dick, simply told that no one there appreciated his dickiness.

Also, if we have souls, than yeah, your interpretation seems like a very likely one.

I've met people like that before, they don't seem like it's just some act or something. The one's I met truly felt that. And, who's to say they can't express those feelings in how they live and act?
