More Gay Bar Closures
I’ve been posting about this topic for a long time, and I was just talking about this with Tony earlier today. The only surviving large gay venue left here in New Hope…The Raven…just closed up indefinitely and no one knows whether they will reopen or not. At one time we had 3 or 4 gay venues and gay people came from all over the country to patronize them.
This is just one statement from a Washington DC gay bar.
“For more than 20 years, our amazing customers and incredible staff have contributed greatly to the DC-area LGBT community and we have always strived to do our part to strengthen local organizations, businesses, and the entire 17th Street neighborhood and we couldn’t be prouder of the legacy Cobalt leaves behind,” owner Eric Little said on Facebook.
Here’s a link to more. I think it’s just a sign of the times.
Anti-Circumcision Presidential Candidate: Andrew Yang
I don’t know how serious this one is as far as politics goes, but I do think mandatory circumcision is important. No one should decide when it’s time to mutilate a man’s penis. The ONLY one who should make that decision is the man himself. Just like women have a right to decide what’s best for their bodies, and rightly so, so should men.
There’s a guy in New York named Andrew Yang who wants to run for President in 2020 and he’s openly opposed to circumcision.
“It’s sort of pushed on parents in many situations,” he told the site, describing circumcision as a “cultural onus” imposed on parents.
You can check the rest of it out, here. Frankly, I think circumcision is barbaric mutilation.
