Was I Immoral or Wrong? (Vanity)

Posted on 11/30/2009 9:56:50 PM PST by TheArizona

My wife has Christmas pictures sceheduled in about a week. I was told to take myself and my older boy to Great Clips and have our hair cut. (No $1200 haircuts for me.)

Anyways, it was near closing time and there were 2 people working, a female and a male. The man was a big dude in height and weight maybe 6'0 200+ lbs with a beard and Go-T. Sorry, I don't know how to spell it. His fingernails were painted black and had an obvious gay accent.

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that’s wonderful is what I feel when we’re together,
Brighter than a lucky penny,
When you’re near the rain cloud disappears, dear,
And I feel so fine just to know that you are mine.

My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
That’s how this refrain goes, so come on, join in everybody!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that’s wonderful is sure to come your way
When you’re in love to stay.

I’ve had gay men cut my hair and they’ve somehow managed to not rape me in the chair.

Still, it’s your call. People choosing to wait for one barber while another has nothing to do happens all the time where my son and I go. The gay guy probably didn’t care.

I’m a melancholy man, that’s what I am,
All the world surrounds me, and my feet are on the ground.
I’m a very lonely man, doing what I can,
All the world astounds me and I think I understand
That we’re going to keep growing, wait and see.

When all the stars are falling down
Into the sea and on the ground,
And angry voices carry on the wind,
A beam of light will fill your head
And you’ll remember what’s been said
By all the good men this world’s ever known.
Another man is what you’ll see,
Who looks like you and looks like me,
And yet somehow he will not feel the same,
His life caught up in misery, he doesn’t think like you and me,
‘Cause he can’t see what you and I can see.

The Day Begins


Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight,
Red is gray and yellow white,
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?
Pinprick holes in a colourless sky,
Let insipid figures of light pass by,
The mighty light of ten thousand suns,
Challenges infinity and is soon gone.
Night time, to some a brief interlude,
To others the fear of solitude.
Brave Helios wake up your steeds,
Bring the warmth the countryside needs.

Paleo-Goths... hmmmmmmmm...

I confess I know less about Goths than I do about Emos. We encounter groups of both when on Patrol, and both seem harmless enough. The Emos talk to us more.

So Paleo-Goths, would they include the likes of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark?

As you can see, I probably have much to learn.

>>>Yup. I think you’re looking for validation with this vanity post, for somebody to say “attaboy! Good for you, you’re not gay!” I can’t see any other reason for this Vanity.

How about getting a bunch of people to offer homophobic posts so this newbie can go back to whatever site with “OMG LOOK AT THE DUMB HATEFUL FREEPERS”. Just as a possibility you understand, not an accusation at all. No siree.

I’ve been noticing several newbies lately opening threads with a similar “feel”. However they always get lots of unfortunately undeniable posters in agreement.

"...What does an “obvious gay accent” sound like?"

Come now. Regardless of the rest of this issue, surely you understand what the poster meant by that?

I don't know what an "obvious gay accent" sounds like in Australia or Italy, but I sure know what one sounds like here in the USA.

My wife and I had a hilarious moment a few years back. We were vacationing on Cape Cod in Massachusetts and took a day trip to one of the most well known homosexual enclaves in the northeast US, Provincetown.

We were having breakfast in a cafe, and were looking at these two guys at a nearby table. Seeing two guys together in Provincetown is pretty much a dead giveaway, but...as they spoke with each other, they didn't "sound" homosexual due to the complete lack of the "obvious gay accent". As my wife and I played the "are they or aren't they" game, the door opened and a guy walked in and went over to their table.

As if someone had flipped a switch, the voice patterns, intonations and inflections of the two guys changed immediately to an "obvious gay accent".

We nearly fell out of our chairs. It was both illustrative and funny.

In any case, perhaps it isn't as obvious to Aussies, but the "obvious gay accent" is pretty much a well understood phenomenon here. Doesn't mean all men who have it are homosexuals, and it doesn't mean those who don't have it are straight, but it is there.

LOL...I had Thanksgiving at my in-laws last week. My nephew is an art major at a liberal college, very nice kid but completely clueless. The kind of kid who wears a Che Guevara t-shirt without really knowing who it is. Anyway, during dinner, he began to ridicule the clothes that some newswoman was wearing, and pretty sharp ridicule. I interrupted him and said "Wait a minute. How can you ridicule someone else's appearance, when you have two steel posts sticking a quarter inch downward from each nostril, rings in your eyebrows and lips and wooden plugs in each earlobe?"

I meant it, too, even though I was laughing while I said it. I had to take my other nephew to task as well on another occasion (nephew on my side) He is 13 years old with a reading disability and can barely read. He is also (at 13 years) a raging liberal moonbat who has bought into the entire liberal outlook and Obama worship. This isn't surprising, considering that he gets most of his knowledge and understanding of current events from watching television. I bought him an iPod and filled it with historical biographies and such, but it is like a brick in the Grand Canyon when compared with the effects of limitless television indoctrination. When I visit, he wants to talk politics with me, which I was happy to do until I realized he was completely infected with liberalism, which saddened me to no end. One day, he started talking about how bad and stupid Republicans were, and used Dan Quayle as an example of stupidity, saying "He doesn't even know how to spell "potato". I had to stop him and say "How can you ridicule the way someone spells, when you can barely spell words yourself?

Believe me, I am sympathetic to his learning disability and to my other nephew's compete obliviousness, but it stops when they make a deliberate effort to go out of his way to ridicule others. I just don't have any truck with that.

It's sad that society has impressed upon you to question your own judgement over the safety of your children. You are free to raise your children as you see fit and have absolute say over their associations.

It's called good parenting.

Don't second guess yourself here.

Nope. There is no such thing as an “obvious gay accent”. Not even in America. It is a figment of television’s overheated imagination.

> Doesn’t mean all men who have it are homosexuals, and it doesn’t mean those who don’t have it are straight, but it is there.

There is an accent that occurs “in the wild” near Portland Oregon. People from that part of the world all talk in the manner you describe, complete with camp lisps and inflections: most of them are straight. When you hear it, it sounds funny and it is easy to draw conclusions, and it is even easier to be wrong in those conclusions.

So not only is there no such thing as an “obvious gay accent”, but what sounds like one is actually a regional accent that applies to both gays and straights — which makes accent an unreliable indicator at best.

I’m a little confused by how you knew he is gay and what a “gay accent” is. The problem in trying to avoid contacts with gays is that you don’t really know.

Maybe we should come up with a system to identify them. Maybe force them to wear arm bands with pink triangles will do it.

Any thoughts?

Great Clips are inexpensive barber shops. You get what you pay for, with a homosexual thrown in for free.........

You'll probably get more attention to detail on your cut from a homosexual than a female barber..........

It is your determination who will cut your hair and the hair of your son. Nobody else can decide that for you. If you don’t want a gay man near your son, that’s your business and you don’t need to feel guilty for it.

Not only should you not feel guilty, you should unashamedly proclaim that you have the complete moral right to decide EVERYTHING about the welfare of your child without the need to explain or defend your actions to anyone outside your family. You have done the right thing, now continue your actions in the future only do not ever feel the need for justification from outsiders again :-)

I guess I don’t really feel guilty. I didn’t think twice about asking for the female to do it, I would do it again if the same situation presented itself. I don’t think I really need to defend my actions.

I simply had an encounter and was pondering it afterwards. I guess I wish to know what other like minded people would have done or think about the situation.

Yes, DieHard the Hunter, there is.

I am not sure I understand why you object to this so vigorously. It is real and not a “figment of television’s overheated imagination”.

This “obvious gay accent” has been around long before television. This “accent” would be clearly recognizable to someone back in the 1920’s for what it indicates.

Furthermore, it stretches across geographical and linguistic delineations in this country. The accent is evident in every part of this country.

As I said, the presence of this accent is not an indicator in itself, since there are male homosexuals who do not exhibit it, but let’s be for real. You can deny it exists, but that does not erase the existence of it.
