Big Gay Ice Cream is an iconic ice cream shop based in New York City and owned by a gay couple. Across the street is Gallo Nero, whose employees displayed an odd sense of humor this weekend when they put up a sign reading “Big STRAIGHT Ice Cream.”
It was a “dumb joke,” Gallo Nero's chef, who would only identify himself as Albano, told HuffPost on Monday. Albano said the employee responsible for the sign was fired, but later tried to walk back that claim.
He also insisted that the Italian eatery isn’t at all homophobic. The West Village, Albano said, is the “gay capital” of the United States, and the restaurant would be “out of business in 24 hours” if it truly held anything against gays. (The restaurant is just around the corner from The Stonewall Inn.)
"We love you guys," he said, referring to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. When reached by Gothamist on Sunday, a manager at Gallo Nero was more incredulous about the sign. “What’s the issue?” he said. “We can call our ice cream whatever we want.”
Too right they can call their ice cram whatever they want. You have the right to call your shop ‘Big Gay Ice Cream’, why can’t straight owners call their ice cream ‘Big Straight Ice Cream’? It wasn’t offensive or homophobic, it was simply a fucking sign for fucking straight fucking ice cream!
I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
It’s exactly this as to why the NHS should not be privatised!
YouTuber SupDaily06 posted a video in response to the horrific video that circulated showing a family beating their gay son. (TW: Clips of that video are shown in this one.) He asked his followers if they would choose to be gay or straight, and the response moved him to tears. Him and me both. (via the Huffington Post Gay Voices)
So after re-watching Cloverfield after many years, unfortunately my positive outlook has dramatically changed. I still believe the premise of a cam job filming group running away from a monster in the city is a good film however what doesn’t quite make sense is the odious part, you know, the plot. A guy wants to save his love who actually he slept with once and was going to leave to japan anyway (she wasn’t) and so after losing his brother he makes sure his best friend, another friend and his almost sister in law all die just so that he and his love could potentially die under a bridge. When all of then could have survived by being transported out if the city… The chances of which were give more than enough time.
Fuck the broad and run mate!
Uganda’s Constitutional Court has scrapped the anti-gay law that said people could go to jail for life just for who they love.
There’s so much more work to be done, this is just the start. Just today, Uganda’s Uganda’s Attorney General appealed the ruling. But for now, brave Ugandans who fought this law could use a big “congrats”! Will you share this news and sign a card sending love to Ugandan groups?
