Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

No Maura,

I think the bar should be excluded because it's name is a slur and harmful to the Trans and Gender non Conforming communities. By giving it a Daysie Seven Days is awarding transmisogynist and transphobic behavior. I don't agree with that. I'm allowed. Free country. Not North Korea.

If there were a mechanic for down voting a nominee I would. But there's not. So I'm voicing my opinion here.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

No Maura. It's nothing like North Korea. That's a completely false analogy.

We never tried to force Craig to do anything. It was always his choice. It's a free country.

What we did do was highlight a problem and voice our concern. Many of us even offered alternatives. We tried to open a dialogue and we invited him to the table. We warned him we wouldn't patronize the bar if he kept the name. We told him we would speak with our dollars. HE chose to keep the name of the bar and ignore the voices of the trans community and their cis allies. Now his business is suffering, and HE has become the catalyst for huge rift in our community.

His choice. His consequence. His fault. No one else's. It's on him as a business owner. And no amount of screaming or finger pointing from you or any one supporter of the bar will change that fact.

#SorryNotSorry. Consequences are hard to deal with. That's part of adulting and business.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

TBH; Why is @Seven Days even allowing the bar on the Seven Daysies nomination list? "Most Gay Friendly Bar?" Yeah, if you're a cis gay man maybe. The owner has shown in word and deed that he cares not one whit for the voices of the T in the LGBTQIA+ community. Give his behavior the past few months, the bar is more a space, with a name, that exists to massage his ego and overwhelming desire to wax nostalgic. Personally I think the bar should be removed from the running.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Awesome how he's blaming the same community he chose to ostricize back in March and then asking us for money in the same breath.

Yeah no

Your business failed because you made poor decisions. Too bad so sad. Maybe next time you'll be wiser for the wear.

Funny but all those voices you choose to ignore are probably seeming a tad more important now aren't they? Next time your community asks you to hear them out, maybe don't turn your back?

Smell ya.

Re: “AWOL Pols: Vermont GOPers Take a Walk on Indiana Resolution

I think these representatives need to do their jobs. You don't agree with a bill or resolution and don't think it should be passed? That is your prerogative as a duly appointed representative, but as tax-payer I expect you to show up, go on record and vote "No." What an utter lack of responsibility to just not show up at all because essentially you think something is dumb. What are they 4 year olds?
