Just Desserts: An Icon of the Old City (San Francisco)

Previously, I wrote about talk show host, Ray Taliaferro, an icon of the Old City of San Francisco. This article is about another icon of the Old City of San Francisco. The original Just Desserts founded in the early 1970s on Church Street in San Francisco by Elliot Hoffman and Gayle Horvath. A family cheesecake recipe started the company. Just Desserts had retail stores throughout The City.

Hola a todos. I thought I’d write about Just Desserts (JDs), as a tribute to the company since JDs was very much a part of the Old City, in those days San Francisco was known as “the alternative and proudly radical San Francisco.” It’s certainly nothing like that today. Read the entire article here.

Ray Taliaferro: “Go on Big T. We Are Right !!!”

Reminiscing about the Old City of San Francisco before the techie dooshes and morbid-looking, monochrome-clothed, conformist, and vapid phone-zombie Millennials invaded our neighbourhoods, disrespecting them and their cultures (La Misión, for example) and ruined The City.

“Up and down the West Coast of this great country, parts of Canada and parts of México. Whatever is on your mind, you’re free to call in”—the opening intro of Ray’s nightly monologue.

“How dare you call this 50,000 watt station in the middle of the night. Get off my show! Go to hell!“—Ray Taliaferro to various conservative callers

Regular listeners to Ray’s show will remember hearing those words many times. Read the entire article here.

“You torture yourself over language”

Hola a todos. The title of this article is what I was accused of doing recently by mi amigo/my friend. I was taken aback by the comment, and I thought that the choice of the word “torture” was a bit extreme, to say the least. This came up because he was reading an article and I happened to glance at the screen and I saw, “Washington, D.C.” in the article. That’s the District (of Columbia), where I used to live and that’s another reason why I noticed it. So, just in passing and giving little thought to it, I merely pointed out that the writer of the article was following the — what I consider outdated — AP (Associated Press) style book. Because USPS, the United States Postal Service (our mail service) has been using “DC” without periods for decades. So I asked: When is the AP going to “catch up?” It was a very innocent question/comment. Well, mi amigo didn’t know what I was talking about. So I had to back up and explain to him what the AP style book was — which he had never heard of — which is the guide that the corporate media new sites follow for formatting/writing their articles. I explained that “D.C.” with periods is outdated if one is following the decades-old USPS guidelines which uses no punctuation for state names or for the Federal District (the District of Columbia) which is not a state. According to USPS, the following should be written like this: DC, MD, VA (for District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia as three examples), which one would think the AP would be using. Since 1963, USPS has given the directive to abbreviate the fifty-states with two letters without periods as seen at that link. I wonder how the AP formats their mail? Maybe they’re still using the 1831 guidelines! I explained to mi amigo that from my corporate law firm experience that word processing operators were trained immediately upon being hired to follow the law firm’s Style Book for formatting legal documents/legal briefs per the Court’s requirements. He wasn’t aware of that even though he had heard me talk many times about formatting documents and word processing coding requirements in law firms.

That ended up getting into this lengthy discussion (roll eyes) about how — according to him — I “torture myself over language and words.” He gave some examples, such as, “You don’t like the word ‘America.’” Well, he doesn’t like the word “America” either, by the way. Neither of us do because it’s the name of the entire hemisphere even though most people use the word “America” as the name of the United States of America. He said, “you’re a language person.” That’s true and he’s not, except when something is important to him.

Yes, I’m a language/word person and have attention to detail in language and that comes from my background. Musicians who train in a Conservatory or School of Music are instilled with great attention to detail in the music score, observing every marking in the score per the composer’s wishes and by quickly scanning each page of the score while playing their instrument, looking ahead while playing, and so forth. My attention to detail also comes from my law firm background and from my language studies striving to be as accurate as possible so that I have some credibility.

All of this, just because I made an innocent comment about “D.C.” with periods in the article he was reading.

Then about an hour later, I found it interesting that mi amigo was very disturbed over some language he was reading. Imagine that! It seems that The Orange Man’s insane regime is going to change language and stop using “climate change” and replace it with something else.

So with a hushed tone I leaned over mi amigo — and it gave me some pleasure to do this — and said to him: You really shouldn’t torture yourself over language. You get so worked up over language. It doesn’t matter what they call climate change or anything else. It doesn’t matter that they sanitise it. It doesn’t matter what anybody calls anything any more. But you get so worked up over words. You try to get other people to change their language and we all know at this point that that’s damn futile. I’ve given up on all of that entirely. I use the words I want to use, and say fuck it! I’m tired of trying to change el mundo/the world when that’s not possible, since we’re all about to be blown up any way by this insane man-child bullying lunatic en la casa blanca/in the white house (I’m talking about North Korea for those who haven’t been paying any attention at all). Most people cannot be changed. They are who they are. Some people temporarily change some things, then in a short time they revert right back to what they were doing. That’s just the way that often is.

I just found it interesting that I was accused of “torturing myself” over “D.C.” — over just fucking periods or what mi amigo calls “dots,” (they’re not called “dots;” dots and periods are not the same thing……UGH……….SIGH) — and then later the accuser/mi amigo is “torturing himself” over climate change language. El Hombre Naranja/The Orange Man and his septic and chaotic regime want to stop using the language “climate change” and instead use “extreme weather” in order to sanitise climate change because El Hombre Naranja does not believe in climate change or science. Stupid is in.

Bottom line: I think pretty much everyone has their own “pet peeves,” even when it comes to language and words, no? Words/Language that are important to them, but nobody else gives a fuck about. And when stupid is in, who cares?! Fuck it all. Chau.—el barrio rosa

“Why don’t immigrants learn English before coming to the US?”

Reposted and Updated: Under the chaotic regime of El Hombre Naranja, this topic has come up again regarding immigrants being required to know English in order to come to Los Estados Unidos/the United States (also known as The Cesspool). Question: When is El Hombre Naranja/The Orange Man and the ignorant basura who continue to lick his boots — no matter what he does or says — going to learn to properly speak English themselves? On occasion, I’ve had the utter misfortune of hearing the man-child ramble on incessantly and seemingly mindlessly as well as his rabid stupid supporters in — what I presume they call — “speaking English,” and they might consider getting their asses in some remedial English classes too, pronto. The hypocrites. Damn, what stupid and ignorant people, while he and they go on hating on immigrants in this nation of immigrants. The poem on the Statue of Liberty says nothing about English being a required language in order to come here. A reporter asked this new spokesliar from the regime about why speaking English is required to come here? Well, the response the reporter received was not worth listening to. It reminded me and others of the worst kind of internet bully troll asshole you could possibly find anywhere. El pendejo did his best to patronise and belittle the reporter much like a parent would severely scold a child over having received a bad report card. One wonders where this septic and despicable regime of chaos finds these scum? And why do scum navigate towards politics and “leadership” positions?

Hola a todos. That ignorant question in the title above was asked recently by some of El Hombre Naranja/the Orange Man’s cultists in the US state of Iowa in an interview with them. They said they thought that their Orange Man’s deportation of undocumented immigrants would tank Iowa’s economy. The people interviewed were not hating on immigrants, per se. One person asked: “Why don’t immigrants learn English before coming to the US?” (roll eyes) I’ll presume the person was referring to Los Latinos, Los Hispanos, Los mexicanos immigrants as opposed to Asians, for example. Many Latinos, Hispanos, mexicanos immigrants already know some English. Others are fluent in English. One of my acquaintances from Buenos Aires is bilingual. He’s fluent en español and inglés/English because he learned both languages in Argentina, and his English is perfect.

How many people in Iowa speak a language other than US-English? Their ignorance is noted however. Here’s why: Many undocumented immigrants fleeing the civil wars and many problems of their native country leave their country very quickly. When one is struggling financially and in other ways in one’s native country, one usually does not have the luxury of learning another language or even thinks about another language. Learning a language takes a long time and it takes dinero/money (schooling). Learning another language is the last thing on one’s mind when one’s country is in the midst of a conflict and/or civil war because of barbaric policies affecting that country (and sometimes the entire region) because of, in part, the terrible and exploiting policies of the barbaric and bullying Cesspool known as los Estados Unidos/the US. (To me, what I’m writing here seems like a given but there are a lot of stupid people out there who apparently don’t know any of this). So that’s why many immigrants arrive in The Cesspool/the US without knowing much or any English. Then after they arrive here, they understandably feel they must live in hiding so they won’t be rounded-up and deported. When one is trying to keep a low profile, one usually doesn’t enroll in a language school, unless perhaps one is living in a “Sanctuary City” and even then it can be risky. One can turn on an English-language corporate network but that will be very slow-going learning English that way. One needs to compare what one is learning in English with one’s first/native language to have a full understanding of the new language and how the two languages compare. When one is dead-tired from working a grueling and often back-breaking job every day as an undocumented immigrant and just trying to survive, learning US-English is understandably not a top priority, and where does one get the $$$$$$/dinero to do so? The Orange Man’s cultists/haters of undocumented immigrants should try doing the job that these extremely hard-working undocumented immigrants do — most of whom are very good people — and see how long they last in the same job. I suspect they would not last long. Also, when one is living among people of one’s own ethnicity and language, there is less incentive to learn the most commonly spoken and in some cases “official language” of a country. That’s the case with some Asians in San Francisco’s Chinatown, for example, who don’t speak much or any US-English, but I don’t hate on them for that. And one really has to have a genuine, sincere interest in something and the drive to learn it in order to learn it well, versus something being forced on one to learn. Some people simply have no interest in languages, and they only know the language they speak because they learned it from childhood up, and they probably don’t remember much about learning that language. If white people who only speak (or rather mangle) US-English were to move to a non-English speaking European country, for example, and lived among other white people who also only speak English, they too would likely be slow to learn the dominant or “official language” of that country because they would likely say, “I don’t have much need or use for it since most of the people I’m around already speak my (English) language.” I should point out that there is no “official language” in The Cesspool.

I suggest that the people of Iowa learn español. If they’re that frustrated by not understanding Latino or Hispano undocumented immigrants, Iowans could remedy that by learning their language, since I think español is the second major foreign international language spoken in The Cesspool at this time. Learning español will likely be as slow-going for Iowans as learning US-English is for Los Latinos/Hispanos. But unfortunately, most (redneck) US’ans fear other foreign international languages and want nothing to do with them which is the opposite approach taken in the rest of the world where international languages are embraced and encouraged, particularly in business. Yet another example of the Backwards USTM. As I’ve written before, classical musicians, for example, work with a variety of languages on a regular bases depending on the repertoire they’re playing. Yet many US’ans can’t even speak their one language correctly: US-English, as opposed to British English and its varieties/accents including Queen’s English. It’s as if the embarrassing and bullying El Hombre Naranja/The Orange Man and his appallingly ignorant cult members don’t seem to have made it to 5th grade. Seriously. I mean, look at how el hombre/the man talks, if you can stand to! His ignorant cultists have all kinds of problems with US-English and spelling from reading their comments on message forums, while they lecture non-English speakers about: “LEARN ENGLISH!” They should take their own suggestion, los pendejos, since their English sucks.

Other than the music, one thing I’ve enjoyed about watching the Liturgies from La Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris is that I’m very slowly learning another foreign international language, français/French. Their High Church Messe is in Latin (the Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, and so forth) as well as in français (the readings and Homily, for example). I especially enjoy listening to the readings during the Liturgy. The readers speak very clearly and I gradually pick up some words. They have at least two multi-lingual priests who read the announcements at the end of the Messe in both français and in Queen’s English. And they give free tours of La Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris in about 6 international languages. They’re not afraid of other languages there as the bigoted and hateful basura are in the insecure US. I would like to learn français. One cannot learn enough foreign international languages as far as I’m concerned. It just takes a lot of concentrated time and effort. Learning another language is not as nearly as easy as the ignorant “English only” trash like to make out while they flippantly scream at immigrants, “LEARN ENGLISH!” as if one can learn a new language practically overnight, or in a matter of weeks or months and become fluent. It can take years to become fluent. I know some people are not language people — mi amigo/my friend is not a language person; he has trouble with languages because of his dyslexia, so I understand that — but people should stop fearing immigrants and international languages. Because in the US, we are all immigrants — except for the native/indigenous peoples — whether one was born here or not. I hope this helps some people better understand why some immigrants don’t learn English before coming to The Cesspool. Chau.—el barrio rosa

Climate change and humans breeding at an alarming rate

If one wants a child, adopt a child.

Hola a todos. With the arrival of thousands of extremely conformist phone-zombie breeder Millennials to San Francisco in recent years — wearing their monochrome uniform 7 days a week — San Francisco has become a Baby Factory, especially the Castro/Upper Market barrio/neighbourhood, where Domingo/Sunday in particular is unofficially known as “Breeder Sunday.” Mi amigo/My friend said to me while writing this article: San Francisco must be tripling its population every two weeks with this baby explosion we’re having. Everywhere he looks: strollers and babies hanging off of people. Cars full of children passing by.

San Francisco is quite a conservative city these days — having been ravaged by the techie dooshes and their millionaire-billionaire companies receiving corporate welfare in the form of tax breaks from the City. Aside from their phone which has replaced their life as well as buying a new (status-symbol) car every month or so, the main hobby of these new Millennial residents seems to be to breed. The planet’s overpopulation is not the least of a concern to these self-absorbed people whose #1 vocabulary word is “like.” (Related: Note to Millennials: How to Stop Saying the Word “Like.” Unless one prefers to sound stupid and tongue-tied). It’s odd that these people chose San Francisco, the most expensive city in the US, to move to in order to breed because that makes having a baby even that more expensive. But here in Billionaire Bay, I have to assume that dinero/money means nothing to them since that’s the way it seems.

But what mis amigos/my friends and I fail to understand is why anyone with a brain would bring a child into this dumbed-down and getting more stupid by the day society? And why would anyone want to bring a child into this world considering the dire warnings humans have received about climate change? By doing so, there seems to be a complete disregard for the quality of life of the child. Instead, it seems to be all about the parent and their pretentious thinking known as, “Keeping Up With the Joneses.” But I think most of these people choose Denial over reality in regards to climate change. They reject reality pretty much everywhere else! None of these parents apparently think of the future. They are instant-gratification sheeple, only thinking of now/today. Also, willful-ignorance plays a major role in this. Most people are not paying attention and/or they’re spending hours playing on billionaire-owned F***Book — as un amigo/a friend of mine asked me recently: “What the fuck is a “F***Book?” — helping the billionaire celebrity CEO make even more billions. Related: “Vladan Joler says that all F***Book users are effectively working on behalf of the company.”

Some credible scientists are saying that humans will be extinct in 8-9 years because of climate change. Assuming that’s the case, that means that the children being born today will live until they are 8 or 9 years old. Therefore, one would have to be a moron to have a baby today, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Just like pop culture celebrities William and Kate of the British Royal Family that many people in the US love to fawn over and seem obsessed with — as if they wished the US were a colony under the British Crown; well that would certainly improve our national anthem by changing it to “God Save Our Gracious Queen” — William and Kate had said they wanted a big family. Why would they want a big family? There’s no shortage of Royals. Kate had trouble with both pregnancies so why would she put herself through that ordeal again? Early on, to me it seemed that her goal in life was to be a baby factory, but after the second child was born she seems to have taken a break, which made me think they had reconsidered the size of their family. If they want more children, they should adopt. Harry (William’s brother) has said he would like kids too when and if he marries his current girlfriend. Harry should adopt too. They should all set an example for el mundo/the world by adopting. Adopted children can be just as loved as a biological child. This need for people to breed and pump out babies is ridiculous and out-of-control.

In our opinion, the main reason people are breeding at an alarming rate here in San Francisco has to do with copy-cat pregnancies. Also known as that shallow “Keeping Up With the Joneses” thinking. When I was a teenager, I remember hearing pregnant women urging other women to get pregnant. They said, “You should have another baby too,” as if having a baby and the enormous re$pon$ibilitie$ that come with that (an 18+ year commitment) were as simple as taking out a magazine subscription, or no different than buying groceries. So when I hear females craving to get pregnant — rather than having the intelligence to adopt a child — I suspect these sheeple haven’t thought the entire process through realistically. I suspect their thinking is more like this:

“You know honey, the Joneses have a new baby and I think we should have a baby too. It would make us so much happier. (That’s the wrong reason to have a baby; work on your “happiness” first). I’ve also noticed that the Joneses remodeled their living room. I was thinking: We should remodel our living room too. I noticed they’ve used monochrome colours. We should use monochrome gray too.”

Yes, use monochrome drab gray even in the bathroom so you can’t see mold growing on the walls. How intelligent. Maybe paint the floor and ceiling pitch black too, no? Did the Joneses do that too? Don’t miss a step with the Joneses. Ugh. Mature people don’t allow the Joneses to run their lives. Mature people allow the Joneses to keep up with them.

Also, speaking of climate change, you can find information about the CO2 count at this link. The CO2 count is supposed to be less than 350ppm. 350ppm was the old goal to not go beyond. Before humans, it was roughly 295ppm. But I suspect most people don’t care. Chau.—el barrio rosa

In the US, violence is acceptable but sex language isn’t

Human beings created the English language, but some words are off limits. They’re not to be used or spoken because they result in the person using them to be called, “foul-mouthed” and “using vulgar language.” So why create words that are not/never to be spoken or written? That’s stupid. Humans have some really weird thinking and do some really weird shit.

Hola a todos. What causes more harm, death and destruction: Violence or sex language? Violence, of course. But in the US of Hypocrisy, violence is quite acceptable — it’s even encouraged — but the use of sex language (which doesn’t cause any harm other than to prudish ears) is not acceptable and it’s approached with a childish mentality by prudes, often with sexual issues/hang-ups of their own. People who use sex language are often called having a “a potty mouth.” (roll eyes) How did sex language become known as “potty?” That’s very childish and immature-sounding. As in, “do you have to go potty?” That’s what parents say to a toddler. So sex language is “potty?” Does that mean that sex language can only be spoken when one is “going potty” or on the toilet? Is that what these immature prudes are saying? Then, there are those ignorant prudes who say that someone’s mouth needs to be washed out with soap for being “a potty mouth.” And what good would washing someone’s mouth out with soap do when the source of language thoughts is the brain, morons. I guess these morons have never thought that through.

I have a very short fuse for prudes. Can’t stand them. Prudes need psychotherapy. But I know they’re not about to get therapy because they often come with this superior, holier-than-thou sacrosanct mentality about themselves. We have a nation of what seems to be mostly children in adult bodies who have never matured to a level where they have the maturity to use or to hear sex language, in part, because many people have been indoctrinated with the fucked-up thinking that sex is “bad” and “naughty.” WTF is “naughty” about sex, people? Don’t most of these people pretend to be a “Christian” and their Christian God — according to them — made the penis and the vagina, correct? Correct. And their God is perfect, according to them. So how could your “perfect” Christian God have made something “bad” or “naughty” or “evil” when he made the penis and vagina? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? Have you idiotic prudes never thought about that? No, I suppose you haven’t. Yet these fake-”Christians” view the penis, vagina, anus and women’s breasts as “bad, evil, vulgar and naughty.” The Prudish US of Hypocrisy (a.k.a. The Cesspool.)

It’s good that the US has its priorities in order. As the reader probably knows, The Cesspool/the septic US is a very violent nation. Violence is our #1 export when the truth be told including the selling of weapons of mass destruction to other nations for the ultimate goal of installing a government favourable to The Cesspool and its rotten-to-the-core US Oligarchy. The current utterly deranged, disgusting and septic trashy-resident of la casa blanca encourages violence of undocumented immigrants. This from an insane man-child that says that, “Amurrrrrrrrrkkka worships god.” Hardly! He didn’t specify which Amurrrrrrrrrkkka — North, Central or South — or which god he was rambling on about. By its own actions, the United States of Amurrrrrrrrrkkka does not worship any god. We have a separation of church and state in the US, or are supposed to. But just like his know-nothing supporters, El Hombre Naranja/The Orange Man seems completely ignorant on much of our system of governance. This from the same fake-”Christian” whose Nave and High Altar seems to be a golf course on Domingo/Sunday. This hypocrite said back in 2016, “I have no time for golf” while criticising messiah Obama for golfing. Meanwhile, security costs for his trips to his church (golf clubs) are currently at more than $6 MILLION US TAX DOLLARS. This fake-”Christian” who says that “Amurrrrrrrrrkkka worships god” doesn’t go to church — except twice a year for the perfunctory two major High Holy days, not that he has a clue what a High Holy day is, mind you — nor are any of his actions and words “Christ-like.” Like most political basura, he exploits the Christian religion and stupid people’s emotions for political purposes in order to pacify his damned stupid disciples. From what we’ve been told about Jesus, he was about love and called the “prince of peace.” The Orange Man’s actions and policies are based in various forms of hate, not love. The US and its corporate media celebrate violence. D and R politicians support violence, in part, through their “yea” votes in support of the terrorist attacks launched by the US Military Industrial Complex on other nations.

Someone (his initials: AS) who only lasted 10 days in the regime of El Hombre Naranja/The Orange Man used some sexual language (including the words “cock” and “fuck,”) in an interview with a New York publication. The corporate media described the comments from AS as “a profanity-laced rant.” As I said earlier, AS has since been fired at the request of a fake-”Christian” evangelical piece of trash who complained to The Orange Man about AS having “a potty mouth.” (roll eyes). “Potty mouth?” Are we toddlers here, Mr Evangelical Fake-”Christian?” I read that El Hombre Naranja approved of the sexual language that AS used in the interview and thought it was funny.

I don’t use the word “profanity” because — according to The Cambridge Dictionary — profane is defined as: “showing no respect for a god or a religion, often through language.” Well, as an atheist, I have no problem with (what’s called) “profanity,” but I don’t call it that. I call it what it is: Sex language, and I don’t see anything “vulgar” or “bad” or “profane” or “potty” or “naughty” or “evil” about sexual language. Just like with the fear of seeing the human body, the fear of “profanity” is religion-based in my opinion. The fake-”Christians” are the first to scream about the use of “profanity”/sex language while they support all kinds of heinous policies of their partisan corporate politicians that are directly against the teachings of Jesus, from what we’ve been told about Jesus.

Mi amiga/My friend told me about her brief commenting experience on a major corporate news site recently on this topic after AS gave the interview to the New York publication. As expected, all the (fake-”Christian”?) prudes — many of whom probably call themselves a liberal (ha!) — showed up in the comments on the article to hate on AS and to say that his language was “reprehensible and disgusting.”

I would not have said what he said in the context of an interview because I know how sexually fucked-up people are in the US and what fucking prudes they are, and I know I would be subsequently hated on (as AS was), but I can think of many things that are “reprehensible and disgusting” and saying the word “fuck” and “cock” are not among them. It’s not as if he killed anybody, people. Get. A. Fucking. Grip. Nobody died because he used the words “fuck” and “cock.” And don’t most of the people whining about his use of the words “fuck” and “cock” use both words on occasion? I suspect so. Their hypocrisy is noted.

Mi amiga wrote a comment on that corporate news site that she didn’t care what language AS used as long as everyone got the point he was making, and that sometimes one has to abandon so-called “decorum” and tell it like it is. Well, her comment went over most people’s heads. These were all very conservative pro-Establishment Democrats, status-quo prudes based on what they said in their comments. AS later described his language as “colourful.” Mi amiga knew no one would agree with her. They didn’t, just as they wouldn’t agree with me. Because we live in the prudish US, a nation that can’t bear to hear sex language from the English language, while many, if not most, people use sex language themselves. Then as expected, two commenters had to drag out the perfunctory, “What About The Children?” CardTM and went on about morals, morality and ethics. As mi amiga told them: I suspect no children watched this interview with AS but even if they did, these days children often know more about sex and sex language than their prudish parents. Exactamente. One often wonders how many children were ever conceived — using a turkey baster? — considering how anti-sex/prudish their parents became after having the first child. WTF happens to breeders after they start breeding? Mi amiga asked one commenter why he was sanitising the word “fuck” in his comment when the word fuck was printed in the article? Her comment about that was not posted. Another commenter wrote about “busting his fucking face” with the word “fuck” sanitised with asterisks. Mi amiga wasn’t sure what that comment was about or which person it was directed at but she pointed out it was inciting violence, which the moderators of the site allowed. Mi amiga wrote that it was interesting that this corporate news site owned by a billionaire allows comments suggesting violence against someone — whether sarcastically or not — and that 3 people had agreed with the violent-natured comment, but the same people couldn’t bear to read or hear the words fuck or cock. Her comment about that was not posted either. It appeared she had been banned at that point for questioning the status-quo and the hypocrisy of fake-”Christians.” So she left the site. Fin./The End. Hasn’t been back since.

Her point, which I agree with: Here in The Cesspool, suggestions of violence are perfectly acceptable and even encouraged, but using sex language such as “fuck” or “cock” — gasp with mouth wide open and eyes bugged out! — is extremely frowned upon. Meanwhile, most corporate networks have no problem showing violent programming for rating purposes because of most people’s craving for content of a violent nature. But they are required to bleep out any sexual language unless it’s a clinical term such as penis, vagina or anus. One wonders how those three words made it through the approval process.

I read that two female members of the family of El Hombre Naranja — his esposa/wife and daughter specifically — said they found the comments from AS, “disgusting” and they used another adjective. That’s odd. They didn’t make a similar comment about finding El Hombre Naranja and his comment about grabbing women by their pussy “disgusting.” Their hypocrisy is also noted.

El Hombre Naranja encourages acts of violence

El Hombre Naranja recently bloviated before a group of la policía and told them not to “be too nice” to undocumented immigrants and others during arrests. He urged la policía not to protect the heads of “criminals” (his word) when putting them into the cop car. El Pendejo. Yes, he referred to people being arrested as “criminals.” They are suspected criminals because a trial has not been held to determine their guilt or innocence. He doesn’t seem to understand our system of (in)justice. Under his twisted-thinking, one is guilty until proven innocent. That’s the opposite of the way our system is supposed to work. He also seems to think that all Latinos, Hispanos and mexicanos are involved in the MS-13 gang. (The president of the United States is explicitly encouraging police violence). I read that the police group he spoke to later issued a statement disagreeing with him, even though many of them shamed themselves by laughing and applauding at the moron’s comments encouraging suspects to be “roughed up.” Related: El Hombre Naranja encourages acts of violence.

Oh and by the way, feel free to use any sex language you want in the comments. No need to sanitise sex words here with asterisks. I use sex language all the time, why shouldn’t you, if you want to? I don’t have any sex words in the spam filter so your comment should go on immediately. If your comment goes into “moderation” it will be for some other reason — such as using the official/real name of The Orange Man — and it’s the system doing that, not me. Chau.—el barrio rosa

Straight couple leaves gay bar and begins make-out session

Hola a todos. Domingo/Sunday in The Castro (San Francisco). “Breeder Sunday.” That’s the day in particular that one can see young, drunk breeder couples leaving gay bars in The Castro and making out on the sidewalk in front of the bar. It’s an odd sight to see. I didn’t think I’d ever see breeders walking out of gay bars and making out below Rainbow Flags and with the bouncer of the gay bar watching them and probably thinking: WTF?, and of course the breeder couple seem absolutely oblivious to anyone watching them, as usual. A casual observer might ask: Why didn’t they go to a straight bar? Yeah, why didn’t they? Are breeder bars in short supply these days in San Francisco? No, not at all.

I guess I need to put up a note for myself as reminder: If you must go into The Castro on Domingo, keep in mind it’s “Breeder Sunday.” For some reason, I forgot that yesterday. Don’t know why.

I saw several breeder couples walking around The Castro holding hands and shoving their breeder sexuality in our faces, although my very reliable gaydar told me that the guy in most of the male/female couples I saw was a Queer boy (a closet case), as usual. I wonder how it feels being in the closet in The Castro? As a closet case, how does it feel when you see other “out and proud” Queer boys? How does it feel when you see some “out and proud” Queer couples walking together and holding hands in some cases? Is the closet case guy in these breeder couples over here trying to get the courage to finally come out of the closet while he holds her hand and she calls him “honey?”

Someone might say, “well maybe the couple you saw leaving the gay bar was bisexual.” Maybe. They could have been, but why would a bisexual person go to a gay bar to pick up a female? Why did she go to a gay bar to pick up a guy? That seems ass-backwards. If they are bi, both of these people could have had their bisexual needs met in a straight bar since apparently he was looking for a female and she was looking for a guy. That’s why straight bars exist. Just seems damn odd one would go to a gay bar looking for a straight/breeder arrangement and then stepping outside and nearly fucking on the sidewalk. But that’s what one sees in these loco days.

Breeders coming out of gay bars and making out on the sidewalk was something I never saw during the Gay Mecca days. That just did not happen. But these days, because there has got to be something in the agua/water making many people loco/crazy, one can see drunk breeders leaving gay bars, especially on “Breeder Sunday.”

I don’t think I’ll ever understand why breeders go to a gay bar, if they’re not gay themselves and in the closet. I’ve heard some of the lame reasons they give for doing so.

I and the Queers I know never hung out/hang out in a straight bar or outside of one. And I have a feeling that one does not see gay couples inside straight bars, or making out inside straight bars, or leaving straight bars and making out in front on the sidewalk, in part, for fear of being bullied, harassed and called anti-gay pejorative names, or even shot to death. There’s a reason straight bars exist and there’s a reason gay bars exists, yet many breeders want it all. Chau.—el barrio rosa
