With the situation in Iraq escalating I don't think we cab fight another war. Especially not a war on a war on a war.

I realized a long time ago in life, I never achieved anything I gave up on.

Do I really think there will be a Jr board? No, but I never imagined much of what my life is today, so you never know!

I'm with Bob Mattinez, I think there should be a larger picture of myself on the profile page. Mind you, not just my profile page, all profile pages. Just until they give me my own board, saves everyone the trouble of looking up my profile to see me.

Yeah I hear ya, I just didn't know if there was something I had missed. I'm not sure I would use the term "human rights" but I can see and respect why you did.

"Basic Human Rights"?
I'm familiar with their anti-gay marriage stance, but is there more than that? (Not saying I agree with it, just curious, that seems like a civil right rather than human)

That Time Anthony Bourdain Scared Kids with the Gay, and I Laughed

I'm not sure how else to make my point but I will try one more time.

A.) besides Bourdains ties to the industry what does this story have to do with Chow? I fail to see any relevance

B.) I believe if the story was being told by a straight person all hell would be unleashed on both the story teller and Bourdain.

C.) I find the phrasing "me, an actual gay guy" an extremely stupid comment to make, especially in an article you are writting for publication.

D.) You or anyone can explain to me the reason behind the article, but no matter how many explanations I hear, I still won't "get it". I fail to see the usefulness of this story for a food venue, for social awareness, for entertainment value, for anything. Unless you're sharing a few drinks with the author in a bar and telling stupid stories, then fine, perhaps. Other than that I do find mostly offensive for the people I assume he is trying to bring awareness to, the gay community.

So that's it. Nothing more nothing less. I find it very hypocritical that's all.

Ha! I took the test online and I'm happy to report I scored "exclusively heterosexual". I was a little apprehensive going into the test because there was this one time, at Cub Scout camp, but the test didn't ask so I didn't tell!!!!

Wooooohooooo!!!! Lets go celebrate my exclusivity Lingua!!!! (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

That Time Anthony Bourdain Scared Kids with the Gay, and I Laughed

I think Bourdains insinuation that being involved in the filming of something gay, to purposely shame the young men/boys is reprehensible. The author went on for years portraying Bourdains brilliance in the handling of the matter just adds insult to injury as the woman in the story pointed out.

Again I believe if the story were being told by a straight person, people would be calling for their head.

I would think a member of the gay community wouldn't feel the need to reiterate their sexuality, because as I read that story it begs the question; "What is a non-actual gay person?" I firmly believe that you are born into your sexuality, why? Because I know I'm straight and have been my entire life, so I'll take someone's word that they were born gay, it makes perfect sense to me. So to hear someone so carelessly use a term like that I find it offensive for gay people and their pursuit of equality. As the Lady Gaga song goes "You were born this way". Why would anyone use terminology which would open the door for doubters? Completely moronic to me.

Again, I fail to see the point of the story or it's place here. Call me what you want but I find it offensive for gay people/rights on several levels.

I know what it's meant to emphasize but I don't get why it needs to be emphasized. In my 44 years of life I've never felt the need to emphasize "hey I'm a straight guy, you know an actual straight guy".

To me the entire article just reeks of hypocrisy. If it were written by a straight person, you know an actual straight person, the war drum would be beaten to death over insinuating there is possibly non-actual gay people.

Call me homophobic if you like, I can care less about the authors sexuality, I just think this proves stupidity is sexuality bias blind.

ETA For the record Lingua if given the opportunity I probably would have smacked Bourdain for using that as the reason to "scare" the boys off.

That Time Anthony Bourdain Scared Kids with the Gay, and I Laughed

I'm really unsure as to what the point of this article is, why it's here and what message it is trying to deliver. I do know if I were to post something similar, about my own experience in shaming young men or boy's by using homosexuality I would most likely be vilified and proclaimed to be a homophone or worse.

One thing I do find very curious is the authors use of this term;
"Me, an actual gay guy,"
Not knowing the author or his sexuality I'm assuming he is proclaiming himself to be gay by this statement. But what is a a "non-actual gay guy", why does he have to specify he is "an actual gay guy"?

Couldn't that lead someone to read that not all gay people are actually gay? What is the difference between an actual gay person vs. a non-actual gay person? I thought part of the equality argument was gay is not a choice or decision, it's natural, you are born gay or straight? By the way I'm not arguing that fact or trying to dispute it, but I am asking the question; What is a non-actual gay person?

Someone care to educate me?

I would tend to agree with you if it weren't for the Borgata, which all things considered is a healthy viable property. If someone were to come in and duplicate the Borgata model, which doesn't solely rely on gaming, then the property stands a decent chance. Especially given the steep discount the property can be purchased for. It's going to be interesting to observe whatever happens down there.

waxyjax, I might suggest starting a new thread with your question or suggestion. This thread (and the post you are responding to) are 7+ years old. I'm sure there have been many changes and updates to the site, and the search function you are inquiring about since the date of this.

So what I'm hearing is the Revel will close for 30 days, contractually the amount of time required to break their leases with 3rd party tenants in the facility. After that period of time new ownership will be announced and they will disclose their plans for the location.

We will see how accurate my "source" is for this information.
