Thank you

Its not primitive but rather sophisticated, where consenting adults share what’s natural between men and women for ages. Please, you would never have been allowed to enter the Garden of Eden. I think you need to loosen up and just accept life as it is. Men and women are drawn to each other.


You are nit picking, not I. Christian introduced the phrase in a sentence that begins “according to police” but he does not use quotes. So he could very well have been quoting or he could have been putting the news in his own words. It is not clear.

If he wanted to make it clear he would never use such an absurd euphemism, he certainly has that skill.

The place and the activity are bottom of the barrel. The word “gentleman” does not belong on that level.


Let’s not nitpick Christian’s reporting.. I mean if you really want to nitpick, he said strip club.. it’s the police who called it gentlemans club…

Anyhow, I agree with you that it’s the bottom of the barrel though.


Please, never, ever refer to one of those palaces of debauchery as a gentleman’s club. While a gentle man may be there, he’s being primitive during those hours. Most of a person’s humanity is left at the door when entering a place like that.

It is an affront to the English language and an assault on comprehension when the words “gentlemen’s club” are contorted to mean a place like that.

I see it is where other very low activities take place, in the dark haunted place beneath a bridge, where the city legally steals people’s money by towing their cars. The bottom of the barrel, certainly.

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.
