A side comment on a gay blog

Gay guy and his young posse of straight men:
My niece just told me this story. Over the summer she worked for AKS (BUD Light) as a rep at all the bars at the shore. They were told gay men are the best tippers (lesbians, the worst)...that a decent looking guy can make up to $700 per night, on top of the money he gets paid from AKS, just for standing there promoting Bud Light. So, two of their friends decided to give it a try.

from weezy on

Weezy's comment re waiters ignoring customers who do not order alcohol:
This is something that I'm noticing within the discussion (not just porcupine's post, it's simply the most recent ), and that I have noticed myself when dining with women friends and teetotaling v. dining with a man and teetotaling -- I never get the diss when I'm dining with a male companion. It only happens if I'm dining with a woman or women. So, is it less about drinksism and more about sexism? Do waiters see me with my oft-times dining companion, a crunchy granola type gal, and figure we must be a lesbian couple and therefore tip poorly? Obviously our figures give a clue that we are both extremely fond of food even to our detriment, so that can't be the reason.

Our Labor Day Message: Tip Generously for Good Service

The President of the National Organization for Women discusses persistent women's wage inequality, with particular emphasis on women of color and female-headed households. We agree that income inequality is a serious and growing problem in this country, going beyond the high-profile examples of CEOs taking home obscene amounts of money, to the concerns of regular people everywhere.

That said, these are complex problems and the longer-term solutions she advocates, e.g., a government jobs program, even if approved tomorrow, are not likely to be fully implemented any time soon.

Fortunately, every one of us can do something about income inequality right now:
