Wait, why is this sign talking to me as if I'm a bro? I'm not a bro. I am, apparently, the girlfriend who COULD be banged by anyone, including entire bars, because I have no agency and no free will and I guess they have roofies at the Winslow.

We vagina folk are accustomed to the male gaze, the invisibility of representation, being paid less for the same job, always having to be The Girlfriend in movies, winding up stuffed into refrigerators in geekboy comics...but now we have to accept being objectified and silenced by bar signs?

Yelp, bang them gently with a chainsaw.

Time for a flamethrower, that sign needs to go. Not sure the bar doesn't as well. Sickening, despite what a doosh on this thread thinks.

Marjorie: Well and funnily said!

Hey Marjorie you forgot to mention how we have to spend more money on clothes, accessories, makeup, hairdressers and hair removal to look cute to get that job that underpays us.

A Greg Gufield/Eric Bolling kind of place. Anyway, the expiration date clock has begun for this Bro hole, as that 14th Street location has about a one year shelf life. That block can only handle one Bro bar at a time and that’s the Blind Pig.

Thank you Marjorie as well for your post.

Based on the sign, at least we know what kind of bar it is. Not my type.

P.S.—Folks, the word is douche, which is French for "shower." You call someone a "douche," you're calling him a "shower," okay?

Madman Expresso's street sign couldn't stand up properly recently. Perhaps the Winslow banged it!

I went to Nordstoms in Union SQ this weekend and 97% of the shoppers were women, I guess they all were shopping for job interview outfits.

Gosh that's inviting!

@Scuba Dive, the English language constantly evolves and adapts, and its words are very often used to mean something other than what was originally intended. F'rinstance, an American dictionary, since we are not in France, defines "douche" as "a device used to introduce a stream of water into the body for medical or hygienic reasons, or the stream of water itself", so it's NOT just "a shower". I think pretty much everyone who read my comment knew what I meant when I said "doosh" - which I intentionally misspelled - but for some reason you were the only one humorless and pedantic enough to call me on it. Mercy buckets.

I find that Yelp, while occasionally marginally useful, tends to be the domain of the exceptionally annoying and banal. Where words like "meh" and "amazing" are actually considered meaningful descriptors, and so on.

Vile bar, vile owners. Hope they go out of business soon.

Women: that sign at least gives you fair warning - don't go in there, and if possible, make it clear why you won't go in there.

I want to bang you alright--right over top of the head with that stupid nerdy chalkboard.

Makeout said...

Someone please tell that sign to shut the fuck up. Thanks!

I can't decide which one is worse, the fake bar for fake pregnant woman or the real bar that wants to get real women pregnant.

Did they not notice that Columbia student who is carrying her mattress around with her to protest campus rape? Or all the drunk Bros harassing women every night? There's a war on women that's been going on forever, and it's called misogyny. It's time for it to stop.
