Commentary: "The Sexist" on Phase 1′s Door Policy
This post was written by TNG co-founder Zack.
The Washington City Paper’s sex/gender blog The Sexist just put out an article on a subject of frequent debate here on TNG: Phase 1′s door policy. Largely enacted to keep military folk and gawkers out of DC’s first lesbian bar, the rule also is a source of umbrage to many male readers of this blog. Exactly why that is I’m not sure; I can’t imagine that too many gay guys are clamoring to go there for a drink. But The Sexist’s unfailingly lovely editor Amanda Hess does a good job of presenting the different points of view at play. She also gives TNG a shout-out and quotes me. Thanks, Amanda! Luddites can check out a hard copy of the article in today’s City Paper.
