Via Cracked I came across this little gem regarding a Jezebel writer and tattoos: https://www.inkedmag.com/cant-get-fucking-neck-tattoo-jane-marie/

tl:dr Jezebel writer wants neck tattoo, artist refuses (as they often do to people who aren't already covered in tats and want a face/neck tattoo), Jezebel writer decides to whip up the internet mob in revenge and mock other people who got tattoos from the artist in question, tattoo artist responds above.

Also with the gay porn star thing:

http://dailycaller.com/2015/07/17/exclusive-interview-with-the-gay-porn-star-behind-that-terrible-gawker-article/

Quote
After allegedly receiving the money, Truitt — or “Ryan” — said he decided to cross-reference Geithner’s phone number (“Ryan” said Geithner declined to provide his last name). “Ryan” reportedly discovered Geithner’s family ties and figured he could use the connection to help settle an ongoing housing dispute with his former landlord in Texas. “Ryan” told Gawker that his landlord claimed he was being evicted because he had a service dog that he needed for PTSD. But “Ryan” believed that he was given the boot because of his work in gay porn.

Records show that Truitt had a lien placed against him in September 2013, by Alexen Vistas, an apartment complex in Austin.

“Ryan” told Gawker he had taken his discrimination case to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) but that the agency found no probable cause to investigate. Truitt then contacted his senator, Ted Cruz. According “Ryan,” Cruz’s office notified him in May that nothing more could be done on his case.

[Update: A HUD spokesman confirmed to TheDC after publication that Truitt had filed a housing complaint and that it was indeed found to have no reasonable cause for further investigation.]

So “Ryan” reportedly asked Geithner to look at his paperwork in hopes he’d use his family’s influence to help with his case. Geithner allegedly looked at some of the documents but was confused about what “Ryan” wanted. Geithner allegedly later texted “Ryan” to say that he’d be unable to make it to their planned meeting in Chicago.

So that’s when “Ryan” contacted Gawker. The publication of the article set off a massive firestorm on Twitter. Most critics pointed out that the story was beyond the pale because Geithner is not a public figure. Others pointed out that Gawker has attacked other outlets for “outing” people.

This essentially makes Gawker an accessory to blackmail, if true.

Bonus fun:

Quote
In the article, the gossip website mentioned that “Ryan’s” Facebook page “contains a number of videos and photographs advocating for a variety of conspiracy theories.” But that characterization doesn’t even scratch the surface.

In addition to endorsing conspiracy theories, Truitt’s Facebook page indicates he has an apocalyptic worldview. In one video he spots a jet flying overhead and claims it is the military testing a nuclear ballistic shield protecting the U.S. Other posts show Truitt believes that 9/11 was carried out by the Russian government.

In another video, in which he calls President Barack Obama the “son of the Devil,” Truitt says that since 1980 the numbers “6-6-6″ have been drawn 25 times in the Illinois state pick-three lottery. Truitt claimed that Obama spoke publicly on 11 of the days on which those numbers were drawn, evidence of some evil of some sort.

“I already figured it out. You were giving a speech 11 times,” Truitt says in the video. “Dirtbag,” he calls Obama. “That is a fact.”

The person in the story has a high opinion of strippers

Why shouldn't they?

More importantly, why did you focus on the stripper line when Meunster seems to think lesbians can't be good people?

Can we also jump on the ridiculous question of what kind of person could possibly think others care?

Good question.

I think because while lesbianism has been more or less completely accepted by the mainstream in the last 30 years, strippers are still largely marginalized and routinely mocked.  But you're right, I glossed over the homophobia, not cool.

Really it depends on the bar and how the stripper thinks about herself I guess.
Im not homophobic,  I mean more who describes themself as    hardworking, good-hearted, and socially conscious? You'll break your back if you pat it so much.
With the who would care thing, I meant more no one at a strip club cares if there's lesbians there. Thinking people care about you being a special snowflake makes you about as head up ass as me.
