    This was shot on Pine Street near Belmont in Seattle… I lived in the red brick building behind the bus in 1988.
    Just sayin’

    • aleksa says:

      First thing I thought when I saw the sign was, “Must be in Capitol Hill.” And that was before I noticed the Metro bus.

  2. Jodi says:

    I want this on a t shirt. LOL 😉

  3. Sarge says:

    So, no Republicans then? Great!

  4. Name says:

    Huh? What’s wrong with being sexist?

  5. CIT says:

    LOL. Yay! That is actually a very nice sign. I would love a shirt like that.

    • Carlos says:

      A tee shirt that says “Do not come in”?
      Let’s ponder the several inferences that can be drawn from that for a moment…

  6. Paul says:

    87% of the world are assholes. The rest are in denile. I just happen to be in the majority.

  7. Dario says:

    What if you are a serial killer?

  8. Xopher says:

    They may not get many customers, but the ones they do get would be the best people around! I’d buy something I don’t want to be able to patronize that place.

    • Anasazi Darkmoon says:

      Seriously! It seems like an awesome place!

    • Acies says:

      Well, either they would be the best people around, or they’re assholes in denial, which would be the worst people around…. the risks are too high imo =/

    • Carlos says:

      People are going to breeze past the sign convinced that it only applies to everyone *else.*

      They ought to immediately follow the sign with another that reads “Trespassers will be shot” so that people who enter but later reveal themselves to be assholes can be shot without legal ramifications.

    • Sean says:

      This is in the capitol hill neighborhood of Seattle, which has one of the largest gay populations in the city. If I remember correctly, this sign is actually at a gay bar. So, it’s good marketing for them.

    • Lizard says:

      ummmm…if it’s a gay bar then I’m really not understanding the exclusion of assholes??? 😕

    • Xopher says:

      Sweet, there’s a difference between having an asshole and being an asshole. Even ignoring that, the owner could just be a bottom who wants all the tubesteaks for himself.

      I guess the corresponding sign for a top owner would be “don’t come in here if you’re a dick.”

  9. Lizard says:

    It has to be the asshole part that keeps most folks out. I’m no bigot but I sure as hell am proud to be an asshole!

    • Daria says:

      Asshole: A jerk; an inappropriately or objectionably mean, inconsiderate, contemptible, obnoxious, intrusive, or rude person.

      You’re proud to be that?

    • 5150 says:

      Ah, but being an asshole is purely subjective, no? One person can be totally sensitive to everything in life and think most people are assholes. Another person could have incredibly thick skin, be incredibly tough, and think, “where’d all the assholes go?” Just saying.

      I really don’t think I’d mind being called an asshole by a bunch of whiney, crying, snuffling idiots who have nothing better to do than bitch about life being unfair.

  10. Zoom98 says:

    Come in to what, a couple of trees and some cement?

  11. Blake says:

    Perhaps this place is run by an extremely sensitive black lesbian…

  12. Dan says:

    I read the first three and was like 😀

    But then I read the last and was like 😦

  13. shenaenae says:

    it’s an old bar from seattle that got torn down…i’m not sure if they still have that sign on the new one.

    • AB says:

      It’s actually not closed….I live about 1 block west of here. It’s a gay bar called “R Place”. The bar you’re thinking of was called “Manray” – that is a pile of rubble now.

  14. Haok says:

    dont cum in

  15. Nic says:

    Don’t like opposite sex, sexist.
    Don’t like other races, racist.

    But if you don’t like homosexuals, why not homoist? Why must it be implied that I some how have an irrational fear of fear of them?

    Why can’t I just dislike them without having to fear them?

    • Mellotron says:

      A strong fear, dislike, or aversion.

    • Nic says:

      Gratz on finding a site that has a definition that fits the point you declined to make, but everybody else thinks that a phobia is simply an irrational fear.

    • Xopher says:

      Homophobia IS an irrational fear. It’s a common human act to use hate as a mask for fear, and to strike out when most afraid. If you didn’t have some basic fear of homosexuals and homosexuality, encountering us wouldn’t bother you at all. I am friends with a number of heterosexual males who have neither fear nor dislike of homosexuals; if you have one, you have both.

      That said, I do think ‘homophobic’ is a confusing term, for the reasons you cite. The terms ‘heterosexist’ and ‘anti-gay’ are more explicit, and you can embrace both if you wish to declare yourself my enemy and the enemy of all gay and Lesbian people everywhere.

    • Dame says:

      Actually, most definitions mention hatred and dislike.
      Popular consent matches phobia to fear, yes, but homophobia is not matched to fear of gays.

      But if you are unhappy with the term, homosexist is getting on the rise, I believe?

    • benni says:

      Well, if you want to make up another word to describe your bigotry so that we can correctly identify precisely what kind of ignorant you are, I guess that’s fine.

    • Trampadoo says:

      Because dislike usually equals subconscious fear, in case of most homophobes the fear of unmanliness, weakness, submission, playing the woman’s part, getting *beeped* up the ass and so on which in return equals to them and other homoephobes/idiots/ignorants/bigots not being a real man, getting discriminated, pushed out of a group, soscienty, being in danger.. . Admit it. ^_^ Other than that, maybe with exception of religion, there is no other reason to dislike gay people. And funnily even this is based on cliché because most gay men got nothing to do with unmanliness, weakness etc., quite the opposite.

    • Confused Person says:

      Woah. Y’know, I really hate running. So does this mean that I’m actually really, secretly afraid of running? D:

      Just wondering after I read the first part of your first sentence. o.o

      Unless you mean to say that applies to homophobic people specifically. o3o

    • must not comment says:


      Sexist = biased preference for a particular gender, spawning dislike for other genders deemed inferior.

      Racist = biased preference for a particular race, spawning dislike for other races deemed inferior.

      People sometimes mistake these terms as simply hatred towards a particular population, disregarding the “biased preference” part.

      To coin homoist would be counter to your intent, as it would imply a biased preference towards homosexuality, spawning dislike for other sexual preferences deemed inferior. Homophobia on the other hand implies strong aversion to homosexual tendencies. It’s basically hatred without stating your preference. ^_^

    • Xopher says:

      And in fact there are plenty of homophobic homosexuals. Larry Craig comes to mind, for example.

    • IceColdTroll says:

      Can’t I just not like the idea of getting cornholed?

    • Xopher says:

      As long as you don’t mind ME getting cornholed, or cornholing someone (not you) who does like it, then that’s not homophobia. It’s just being heterosexual (supposing you’re male) – or even just not being a bottom (which is what we call someone who does like it).

      If you’re so repulsed by the idea that you feel the need to beat up anyone who likes doing it or having it done, or call them names or vote against them being able to marry each other, then you’re a homophobe.

      It’s all right not to like it for yourself. I don’t like going to bed with women, but I have nothing against people (male or female) who do.

    • Dame says:

      Wut. I have a few guy friends who like a bit of anal play, and they’re completely straight and dominant. So, no, you don’t have to be gay or a bottom to like a bit of prostate massage. =/

  16. schoolhouse says:

    those racistists

  17. Mister Dictionary says:

    No babies allowed, then!

    … No, seriously, Babies have a biased preference for people who resemble them. Racist babies…

    • Xopher says:

      Well, yeah, if it’s a gay bar I think babies don’t belong there. Or a straight bar, for that matter.

    • Dame says:

      Basic instinct to stick with your pack, as you assume they’ll protect you or take you in.
      Some babies consider the idea of trading moms, actually. They love healthy-looking females, so some might, for a while, prefer to be with a new female they find to seem healthier than their actual mom.

      It’s all just basic survival instincts.
      I love babies for that. I normally hate children, but, babies are fascinating to observe as they are humans at their most primitive and basic, that is, the true representation of the human animal.

  18. says:

    “Or”. What if I’m more than one?

  19. Charles says:

    No Republicans allowed!
    We need this sign on the Capitol.

  20. Xopher says:

    Oh, no, THAT would be terrible. But “no Republicans” doesn’t necessarily mean a one-party system.

    No, what we need in this country is a real leftist party, probably with the dreaded S word in its name. Then the Democrats can be the conservative party (as they are in truth) and the Republicans can be the we-used-to-be-so-great crazy-ass ultraright (ditto).

  21. Him says:

    Is it just me or is the writing backwards.

    He is taking the picture facing the street or there is just a really, really strong glare.

    • ?preD says:

      The picture is mirrored so that it isn’t backwards and the viewer can read the sign. If you noticed, the parked car is off to the left of the street. If it weren’t mirrored, that car would which would require crossing 4 (5?) lanes, and avoid hitting the other cars in order to park in that spot. I could be very wrong though, and simply insane.

  22. Some dude says:

    The sign picture is from the old location of the cha cha on capitol hill it has now moved a couple blocks away and the new location does have the same sign. There is also another location in LA. I used to work there.

  23. Joie says:

    I thought it was Jake’s in Olympia. They are pretty awesome too. 🙂

  24. jgt2598 says:

    I wish my street had that sign, better yet, I wish that were my states welcome sign.

  25. chleosm says:

    This was the Cha Cha before it got torn down and moved up the street.

  26. Big Boned says:

    If you are:
    -or an asshole
    Don’t come in! (Wer’re all full up)

  27. nannou says:

    that place must be empty

  28. TypeANegative says:

    Just because someone doesn’t approve of homosexuality doesn’t make them homophobic/homoist/whatever though.

  29. Redneck says:

    This establishment must’ve been built by some queer-o sexual negros.

    But in all seriousness, if this was the rules for entering the intahwebs, it wouldn’t be populated… or, at least a population of less then 1003.

  30. Catfish says:

    Isn’t the person, who put up this sign, being an a-hole to the others on this list by telling them that they are not welcome? Therefore, he is not allowed either!

    It amazes me that some people think that everyone should be all accepting, yet they are not accepting of those that don’t accept them.

    • Thoughts says:

      Catfish, you are not accepting of people who are not accepting of people who are not accepting of people.

      I am accepting of that, and take the same stance. Live and let live. Do not bother being politically correct, that is so phony: BE YOURSELF.

      That said, I think that everybody DOES deserve equal rights and should be treated the same by the government, employers, etc.

      A hypocrisy has arrived.

  31. observer says:

    Put another way: “Only self righteous, holier than thou, self-proclaimed tolerant people are welcome. We’re so tolerant, we can’t tolerate intolerance”. How they know? Is there a test at the door, or do they just use their best judgement you based on how you look?
