LA Gay Bar Bans Bachelorette Parties

You can read about it HERE.

Unsurprisingly, the comments are more interesting than the brief article.


Equal doses of thought-provoking and funny.


Makes sense to me.  Who would be such an insensitive moron as to have a bachelorette party at a gay bar in a place where same sex marriage is illegal? 

But you know, even if same sex marriage WAS legal, I'd also wonder at a hetero bachelorette party being thrown in a gay bar, unless you have gay friends who are regulars there who throw it for you or something.  Why would I want to invade GLBT space and make it all about me and my hetero life?

I am in total agreement with the decision of the bar-owners in the story linked to above, BUT... I am really hard pressed to think of a women's only bar (or similar venue, apart from a few lesbian establishments I am somewhat familiar with) where an ostensibly all female group could have a bachelorette party without having to deal with the antics of the male patrons. Having been "exposed" to any number of "straight" establishments with liquor licences (hey, even bagkitties go slumming), I can list a half dozen reasons why hetero women might find a gay bar a better/safer/more enjoyable place to hold a bachelorette party than its "straight" equivalent. All of these reasons having, of course,  a common denominator... the behaviour of straight males multiplied by their exposure to alcohol.

If only I knew this the last time I was in Alberta.
