LA Nightclub Bans Bachelorette Parties…

But only until marriage is legal for ALL!

The Abbey, a gay nightclub in West Hollywood, is a regular hotspot for bachelorette celebrations - mostly due to supa fine male dancers combined with copius amounts of alcohol!

But, owner David Cooley recently barred all pre-marriage female-centric parties due to marriage equality currently NOT being accepted in California.

Cooley states:

“We love our straight girlfriends coming in to celebrate one of the happiest days of their life, but it’s also a slap in the face to my customers and my life that we can’t have that same celebration”

We understand the decision, but we also don’t believe limiting the rights of others is an effective pro-gay marriage statement!

Sorry ladies!

    For once I agree with you Perez.

    So, fight discrimination with discrimination? Really? How unfair.

    Are straight male bachelor parties banned? Why must women be penalized for largely male devised governmental regulations?

    It's kinda like… If you don't believe my way, then get out. Gays should be able to marry ESPECIALLY ADOPT! But don't take it out on customer!!!!! I think that is a form of discrimination?!? plus, youre just hurting your business.

    Re: syd3 – I don't think gay establishments get a lot of requests from straight bachelor parties.

    straight couples should not have to feel guilty because THE GOVERNMENT doesn't allow gay couples to marry!!! what would you say if a non gay nightclub prohibited gay couples celebrating civil unions?? "Sorry gays"… ? no, you would be furious. i hope this nightclub loses some serious business over this.

    Straights baring a gay civil union in a bar would not be the same unless heterosexual marriage became illegal. This business is stating that no situation involving marriage will occur on its premise until all marriage opportunities are realized. It is not banning heterosexual people from coming to the bar. Going to a bar isn't a "right". Stop being melodramatic.

    Do lesbian clubs allow straight men to hold bachelor parties there? Hell no! Men aren't even allowed in (or just barely)! Would lesbians ever be expected to let crowds of horny drunk men be grabbing them and feeling them up? No! So there's nothing wrong with gay men saying no as well. Gays don't have a "right" to go to straight bars and grab straight guys' crotches, do they? So what gives women the "right" to do that to gay men like they do at the Abbey? No one has a "right" to come into a private business and do whatever they want. There's nothing wrong with a gay club putting limits on these obnoxious and disrespectful parties.

    Re: Tiffany625 – Um hunny yes they do. Think about it - it's a sure way for your fiance to know you aren't gonna cheat the night before the wedding.

    What the fuck kinda shit sign did she make, it looks like she had a fucking seizure trying to write that out.

    No, Mr. Cooley, you do NOT love your straight girlfriends nor any straight woman for that matter as you are fighting discrimination by discriminating against straight women! So you are punishing straight women for a grave injustice we've done nothing to cause. The fact is many straight women, including myself, have supported gay rights unconditionally and this is a huge slap in the face. I do not understand or accept this decision at all, as it is extremely discriminatory. Furthermore, I hope many people are going to shun going to the Abbey from now on. Maybe after Mr. Cooley loses profits he'll reconsider.

    Re: Seto – Men don't usually go to gay strip clubs for their bachelor party!

    I don't think this has anything to do with Gay Marriage. But I do agree with barring straight bachelorette parties from a gay venue.

    Gay men go to a gay club so they can be in a gay environment, not so they can put up with the drunken antics of a bunch of pissed up sluts who think that just because they're at a gay bar they can behave like a bunch of bitches in heat.

    Ladies, just because we're gay doesn't mean we want to be your friend and we certainly don't want your messy party at our venues - go act that way around a bunch of straight guys and see how long they put up with it: about as long as Chris Brown did with Rhianna.

    Woah there tristram, that sounds a little discriminatory to me. You're just building up the barrier that shouldn't even exist between gay people and straight people. It's a difference in sexuality, not a difference in species.

    Re: tristram – Wow, I have to say what you wrote there is disgusting. Never have any of my gay friends said anything like that or treated me like they didn't want me around. While I fully support LGTB rights, I have to say I don't support people like you who fight discrimination with discrimination. And in case you don't know, it's a nightclub, business was open for both gay males and straight women and you know why? Because these women didn't care if it's a gay nightclub, because they are accepting. Cooley and people like you are basically spitting into the faces of those women who accept you and gave Cooley business. Don't worry I don't want to be the friend of a person like you, but thank goodness I have great gay friends who appreciate the women who support them.

    Re: Moniker – You are truly naive. You wrote, "these women didn't care if it's a gay nightclub," as if that's somehow an awesome thing. That's exactly the problem! They don't give a cr*p about gay people, gay rights or any of the patrons of the bar. Bridezilla and her pack of sloppy drunk messes barge into the Abbey and act like it's their own private strip club and that the gay patrons are their hired strippers for them to toy with. Gay men do not exist to be groped and pushed around by drunk women. If you like that sort of thing in your own life, you're free to work as a stripper at bachelor parties. It's a free country and you have a right to do that if that's how you want to live. Gay men are free to draw the line in their own businesses and their own lives against this sort of thing. Lesbians don't allow frat parties in their clubs and straight men wouldn't tolerate gay partiers feeling them up at a straight club. By saying gays have to tolerate rude and out-of-control women, you're discriminating against gays, and showing that you don't give a cr*p about gay people or gay rights, either.

    Re: Moniker

    I didn't say anything about banning 'women' from gay clubs. I said they should ban 'bachelorette parties' from gay clubs. There's a difference, and I'd suggest you read my comments more carefully before replying.
