Heard something about another guy heading to a pride event this afternoon carrying weapons and explosives? Didn't actually see the article, someone just mentioned it on reddit.

I was making plans to see Allison Weiss and Soupy in Orlando with my sister tonight. If you guys follow the "what are you listening to" thread, you know I'm a pretty big Allison fan and my sister is a huge Soupy fan, but we're terrified of going to the show tonight. If you guys aren't aware, Allison is gay and there will be a lot of LGBT people there, so I'm just hoping everyone who makes it there stays safe. Security will be doubled and everyone will be patted down, but I still have a really bad feeling about it.

He was a Muslim and you're 100% right. It's really upsetting because now all the conservatives are speaking out against the shooter and trying to shove the fact that it was a hate crime against the LGBT community under the rug. I was with my family this afternoon and they had the Fox news coverage on and not once did they mention that it was a gay nightclub.

Probably should be fine I'd think. Just googled after my last comment and apparently they now "reliably" think the guy was one of the randoms acting in the name of ISIS, so I don't think that your event tonight is anymore likely to be targeted than any other.

ofc they didn't because they know part of their fanbase might agree with him.

 

But now for the other prediction on Monday, June 20th, there will be no further articles or news converge about the incident. Save a few references to it in the coming months and years by media and politicians using it to advance their agendas ie: remember aurora.

I've been living in Italy for a week now.

I'm covered in mosquito bites but I've made some brilliant friends out here.

 

I've had ten meals of pasta and two pizzas. I had lasagne this afternoon which was really nice as well.

They're really into fizzy water which is a bit annoying when you're not expecting it.

 

Last week I stayed in a lovely golf resort and met some great people from all over the world.

I'm now living in Rome and despite being incredibly paranoid of pickpockets, I'm really excited to begin teaching my first class of Italian children tomorrow.

 

 

A lot of Europe is in to carbonated water. Always make sure you get water 'without gas'

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

My brother and sister in law only drink flavored sparkling water and I can't stand the stuff. I have to buy water by the gallon when I visit just so I don't die of thirst.

We're gonna have the City Pass, so we'll have the aquarium free. Probably gonna visit aswell.

 

Canadian beer sucks.

 

My view is [bleep]ing epic. 18th floor on Bloor street, overlooking the university and straight view to CN Tower and the lake.

 

It's pretty amazing how large the city really is. And how many immigrants.

 

A mate of mine, who is also here, commented that every time he sees a white chick, eyes are resting. So many asians and blacks and latinos. White people really are a minority here.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

"Canadian" brand beer isn't good but actual Canadian beer is aight. That'd be like if you told me budweiser was a bad American beer. Because you'd be wrong. It's technically not American and it's not bad - it's horrendous.

The Liberal Media coverage has been far worse. It seems the modern left would rather defend Islam than protect LGBT people.

Hell, even a Keith's is alright.*

Keiths is probably our best macrobrew, although calling it an IPA is a travesty.

I used to drink Bud Light when i was in the US. I don't know why, but i [bleep]ing loved it. Probably going to sound weird, but it had a very very slight banana bread taste to it. And the fact that i could drink 20 and not get drunk was a major upside too.

It's awful how so many people want to either a) condemn a religion (while ignoring how damaging the other Abrahamic religions are) or b) pat themselves on the backs for being tolerant and open minded, but so few people actually want to protect the people who are in real danger right now.

And the modern right would rather attack Islam than accept that LGBT people exist in the same capacity as anyone else. It's more sanctimonious for the right to pretend to have even a shred of concern for the victims when they themselves were the biggest threat to them before today, and probably will be again tomorrow.

How on earth can you say conservatives are the biggest threat to LGBT peolpe when a islamic terrorist just gunned down 50 people at a gay bar and further attacks have been promised?

 

And that's certainly not the viewpoint of the younger, modern right. The Trump subreddit has an LGBT flag in its header right now and has been accepting and celebrating LGBT supporters for months.

Because I follow US politics. I know that it isn't necessarily the case elsewhere, but here it is.

Because I can very clearly see who's supporting legislation designed to strip us of our basic right to exist in public places here.

Because I've seen the statistics and murder rates and I really don't have the energy or willpower to dig them up tonight, but I've personally spoken to people younger than I am that supported the same and worse.

Because the guy who was arrested bringing an arsenal of guns to LA Pride was a young white guy.

Because the reason people are in the closet isn't rare chance of a Muslim terrorist, and it isn't a Muslim terrorist that's responsible every single time someone is murdered or pushed to suicide for existing out in the open.

 

If that's not representative of Trump's supporters on Reddit, good for them. I'll believe it when I see it. Especially when the shooter himself was apparently not motivated by religion whatsoever (and didn't even practice), according to his family.

/r/the_donald was so gross today. They've always been gross people who have openly been horrible towards GSMs, and only now do they show any (thinly veiled) support when it allows them to condemn Islam. It's just a bunch of bigoted [wagon] who hate Muslims more than they hate gays.

Today I played a ton of Diablo 3 and then realized... all the work I made in D3 will probably be completely wasted when the new expansion comes out. Quite depressing.

Had some Moosehead, Mad Tom's, Mill street 100th, Shot Put or sth like that.

 

Still, it sucks.

However, it is better than 'mudican pisswasser.

 

 

Still waiting for proposals to go out somewhere here. We are having loadsa fun being inappropriate.
