Reisner & Weiderpass Throw In The Homosexual Towel: The Out's Going Back In Comments (0)

IMG_7237(Image by Matthew Rettenmund)

Via NewNowNext: Ian Reisner, who with his ex-partner and current business parter Mati Weiderpass hosted that indefensible Ted Cruz glad-handing session that hopefully forever marred their credibility, has announced their NYC gay hotel The Out is going back into the closet.

With his usual tone-deafness, Reisner last year declared:

This has not been a profitable venture. Gays are cheap. They’re frugal; gays are frugal. Let me retract that… gays are entitled. Do you know how challenging it is to make a penny off a gay person? ’I’m gay, I don’t pay cover. I’m gay, where’s my comp drink?'”

Hideous man.

The hotel's lease has been bought by Merchants Hospitality and will change in every conceivable way. Good. It's not worth having a so-called gay hotel if it's enriching in any way two gay Republican quislings.

*widget boy cultureChris Pratt waxes nostalgic about hunting in Texas as he jokes about all-meat diet.:

 

Here I am vacuum packing some deer meat in the kitchen. I grew up in the woods. Not literally. I mean, we had a house. I wasn't raised by coyotes. But I spent a lot of time in the woods. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors with my friends and family is how I spent my free time as a young'n. That part of me will never change. I mean. I'm assuming. I don't know. Maybe it will. It hasn't yet. Maybe one day I'll wake up and be like, "I'm only gonna eat veggies for the rest of my life." If I do that's cool. It's a free country. Anyways. I just filled the freezer with a bunch of tasty meat from an awesome deer hunt in the great state of Texas. Oh! I should tell you: I'm going to start a diet I called "The Game Plan" where basically I only eat wild game for a year. "The Game Plan," get it? Cause GAME? I mean I'll also eat veggies and fruit and other stuff too. But for one year I want to eat only the meats that were caught or killed by me or my friends. Total free range organic wild game! The game plan. Join me. I mean I'm gonna still eat eggs and probably chicken and probably steak I mean I gotta have steak and oysters and definitely bacon. But other than that. And the occasional burger for a cheat meal. But other than that only wild game. The game plan. I should mention I will also have sushi because I have to have sushi because it's so good. And pepperoni. But that's not a meat technically, right? But other than that all wild game. And pepperchinis! (That's not how you spell that) Exclusively wild game. It will be tough. But it's worth the sacrifice. I will be eating turkey for thanksgiving. Probably fried. That's the best. And also ham. For Easter we make lamb. That's great. Ill have to have lamb that day. So... "The Game Plan" Who's with me!?

Reisner Lied: Money DID Change Hands Comments (0)

In a bit of news that should surprise absolutely no one (and yet that allegedly came as a surpise to Mati Weiderpass), Ian Reisner actually DID contribute to Ted Cruz. He gave Cruz $2,700 around the same time as his intimate fireside chat with the virulently anti-gay senator/prez candidate. Once the scandal broke and his PR woes began, Reisner cravenly asked for his money back because he feared it could be misconstrued as exactly what it was--tacit support for a notorious homophobe.

He now claims he made the donation because he was so impressed with Cruz's stance on Israel. I'm sorry, but as important as any American may think Israel is, either culturally or strategically, what's happening in America should probably matters a bit, too.

Some people have made light of the boycott (people think there's only so much outrage to go around or point out that it's unlikely to deter airheads who want their fun in the sun, or that it's unlikely to persuade smart people who just don't think boycotts work or that Reisner's action merit one), but in my opinion, it's always worth expressing your displeasure, it's always worth avoiding spending money if you think the money is going to someone who will turn around and hand it to your sworn political enemies. For me, it's not about picketing, it's about raising awareness.

It certainly can not be said that the negative vibes have had zero impact on Reisner and Weiderpass, judging by their frantic solicitation (paid? one wonders) of positive press pieces and their embarrassing hiring of Omar Sharif Jr. as their new gay liaison (imagine being gay and being so out of touch with gay issues that you need to pay another gay person to help you get along with gay people).

Is there an end result here? The end result doesn't have to be the destruction of Fire Island's businesses or the end of The Out. The end result can also, and should also, just be awareness that Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass are dishonest, they have contempt for their customers, they will spend your money on politicians who are feverishly working to disenfranchise gay people and they are not to be trusted in any capacity.
