    Thanks, wonderful read. But dear metta, you know I love your links, best on RJ, but could you sometimes precede them with a brief summary or better description?

    Like "Ignorant Customer Learns An Important Lesson ABOUT GAYS" versus it possibly being a customer lesson about unit pricing.

    My favorite one I did to a homophobe is still the guy I met in a shopping mall restaurant & bar, while waiting for my husband to finish his Christmas shopping. He struck up a conversation with me at the bar while waiting for his wife to likewise finish her own shopping, and we made pleasant small talk, he seemed to take a liking to me, I'm sure because we also shared our military service experiences. But then a CNN news story caught his attention on one of the bar TVs, involving some gay marriage issue.

    He started cursing gays up & down, oughta be arrested & shot, it turned his stomach that they sleep together, he went on & on. I was obviously highly offended but maintained my cool in a public place, kept my responses non-committal. Almost immediately his wife and then my husband joined us, and were introduced around, describing my husband to them as my "friend".

    I would have left immediately but my husband wanted his own drink, and the conversation changed anyway. But then the other guy returned to gay bashing, which alarmed my husband, but I privately signaled him to keep quiet, let me handle this.

    We left within a few minutes of hubby finishing, my husband first. In making my farewells to the homophobe & his wife I said to him, in a nice booming voice that carried:

    "By the way, you should know you've been having drinks with a gay couple. Who sleep together in the same bed every night. Merry Christmas!" I wondered less what HE thought, than about what his WIFE thought, since he had introduced me in glowing terms to her.

    I joined my husband at the exit, who had heard what I said even some distance away, and we staggered laughing all the way to our car, and laughed all the way home.

    I made no converts that day, and I'm quite sure that was never possible. But I was happy to give a homophobe a shock and a disconcerting experience. And so my work there was done. icon_biggrin.gif

    "describing my husband to them as my "friend"

    Good response, but I would have pulled the partner(although they may not have gotten it) spouse or husband card right then. I love making someone like that just as uncomfortable as possible. I'm pretty good at 'in your face' with a smile.
