Re: Homophobia in the Nelson Bar

I'm guessing it's a safety issue. Not great for your insurance if someone slips on the wet areas ...

Don't you mean the sticky areas?

One side of the story is that they were just kissing, and the other side is that they were going at it in the corner. So in the end, no way of telling who's right.

What I would say though is that I've seen hetro couples thrown out of clubs before for excessive PDAs, and they haven't had the luxury of screaming homophobia.
Honestly even if that was the case, I don't think the bar is justified at all unless the "going at it" would actually mean intercourse, which I'm sure it was not the case.

I made out with my girlfriend a lot in clubs and bars in Switzerland and never got even a dirty look from the staff.

You can't honestly say the couple is in the wrong here. Specially considering it's a bar!

Re: Homophobia in the Nelson Bar

Doesn't this type of place have CCTV? Surely it can't be that difficult to ascertain whether or not the behaviour of these guests was over the top or not.

LOL! That's an artful way to write it!
That's not the only cringeworthy part of the statement.

Re: Homophobia in the Nelson Bar

Depends on how far the "making out" goes.

I'd say it was inappropriate for genitals or breasts to be exposed and/or for there to be excessive groin grouping - independent of whether it heterosexual or guy-on-guy**.

Perhaps the bouncers are from Appenzell and still believe it is the 1970s and that homosexuality should stay where it belongs - in the catholic church.









**If it is 2 women - it is fine as long we can film.
(Joke)

Agreed!

I just find it hard to believe that this would be the case in this situation.

Re: Homophobia in the Nelson Bar

Given that I and many colleagues have witnessed (hetero) dry humping on MANY occasions there, unless they were winking each other off, then a hetero couple wouldn't be censured for the same act.

Of course you can. It's absolutely wrank when you're trying to talk to someone and you have a couple over their shoulder going at one another like a tramp eating a discarded kebab. There's a reason they have this sign in swimming pools.

Muscular guys in tight T-shirts - are they the "gays" or the bouncers?

Am I the only one who thinks Putin likes a bit of sausage? Can you name any straight guy who horse rides topless?
