Feminist says traditional family must be abolished because it’s a tool of capitalism

The Left have always been hostile to the traditional family, beginning with Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, which regards the family as where women are little more than “instruments of production” for men, and where patriarchy and capitalism worked in tandem to produce alienated workers.

The Left’s antipathy to the traditional family is fully displayed in feminist theorist Sophie Lewis‘ new book, Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism Against Family (Verso, 2019), wherein Lewis outright calls for the abolition of the family.

Central to Lewis’ thesis are pregnancy (“gestation”), mothers (“gestators”) and babies (“neonates”). For Lewis, motherhood is a form of exploited and unremunerated labor (or work) that enables that most exploitative of all economic systems — capitalism. In Lewis’ words, pregnancy and motherhood are capitalist devices for “propping up the propertarian, biogenetic, nuclear private household that is our main kinship model.”

In an interview with Rosemarie Ho of The Nation, which Wikipedia calls “the most widely read weekly journal” of progressives, i.e., the Left, Lewis said:

It’s a central idea to feminism anyway, that mothers aren’t natural entities; they’re making choices to look after this other person. It’s not some sort of mechanical, automatic process…. That’s why it’s so valuable to denaturalize the mother-child bond. To do anything otherwise is to devalue that work. That’s the horizon that I think opens up the space for a revolutionary politics….

I want to challenge, the idea that babies belong to anyone—the idea that the product of gestational labor gets transferred as property to a set of people. That is actually one of the revolutionary horizons that the Sisterhood of Black Single Mothers advocated for: how children should belong to no one but themselves….

[W]hen we say we want to abolish the family…there’s the whole question of what it is for: training us up to be workers, training us to be inhabitants of a binary-gendered and racially stratified system, training us not to be queer….

Sometimes you need the poets to help you articulate something concretely. You need Sylvia Plath describing the process of giving birth as a “black force blotting out [her] brain and utterly possessing [her]”; you need Elena Ferrante describing motherhood as being “a cud made of a living material that continually amalgamated and softened its living substance to allow two greedy bloodsuckers to nourish themselves.”

[…] it would be useful to implement a sense that it is normal for us to think about babies as made by many people. I would support policies that expand the number of people who are socially and legally recognized as central, fundamental players in the constitution of a person….

Lewis is too much even for The Nation‘s “progressive” readers, as indicated by some of their comments:

Alexis Treeby: “This interview is horrible. There may be merit to Ms. Lewis’ ideas. I say may, because I have no real idea what they are. It isn’t a sin against Marxism or feminism to speak in clear English instead of jargon, particularly in a general interest political magazine such as The Nation.”

Elizabeth Vincent: “Of course there are women who don’t want to be mothers, but why is that a problem to be solved by having all babies born to paid women of color in other countries? Why can’t women who don’t want to be mothers just not be mothers, and leave mothering to people who do want to be mothers? I feel like there is an unfortunate tendency for intellectuals to over-complicate issues in a way that scares people away from the left. I am a mother myself, and although it was difficult bringing up children, to me it was completely worth it.”

Muhammad Thompson: “I’m so sick of this pseudo-scientific crap, these social analyses pulled so easily from the ass of the Neo-Marxist. Pretentious fabrications like “heteronormativity.” This is why I pull away from socialism. Marx and Engels have nothing to offer our age”

Francis Louis Szot: “If I hadn’t read this article, if I heard some Ozark snake-kissing, old-testament-based champion of genocide claiming that the left wing of the Democrat Party was in favor of “abolishing the family”, I’d have been able to chalk-it-up to faulty attribution, or malignant, purposefully deceptive translation of some weird, offhand remark by an isolated, grumpy individual.

Now, I’ll have to admit that the dolt CAN claim that he saw that prescription inside one of the most prominent publications on the Left Side of the USA political spectrum, and thereby semi-legitimately extend the silliness beyond the immediate coven members who penned it.

Thanks to The Nation, such an asinine assertion can be repeated by the religious right with validity.

If there was any possibility that the claimed cause & effect had the slightest chance of actually happening, or actually being true, I might be persuaded to give it a little slack, but this stuff is 100% nonsense, IMHO.”

Sophie Lewis explains why feminists are so hell-bent on killing their young, in utero and post-birth.

The Big-Clit Caption Contest

This is the 200th world-famous FOTM Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic:

Language Warning!

About the pic: Taken at a women’s march for something. Researching “big clit energy” on the web, I learned that the Urban Dictionary defines it as a woman who’s “confident, carefree and independent”. This blog says “big clit energy” is feminists’ riposte to “big dick energy”:

Big Clit Energy (BCE) is the self-possessed swagger and confidence of a woman who doesn’t care what anyone (but especially men) thinks of her. She is assertive, bold, and unafraid to speak her mind. A woman with BCE is empowered by the complete lack of fucks she gives…. BCE is leaving the house without a bra on and eating a burrito with your bare hands.

You know the drill:

  • Enter the contest by submitting your caption as a comment on this thread (scroll down until you see the “LEAVE A REPLY” box).

UNC feminist snowflake cries when arrested for stealing pro-life sign

A feminist snowflake at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill learned there are consequences to her obnoxious and illegal behavior.

As reported by Ferlon Webster, Jr., for MRCtv:

A leftst female student on the campus of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill received a quick dose of justice after she stole an anti-abortion sign from the pro-life group Created Equal.

The student grabbed the sign from Austin Beigel, a peaceful protester, and walked off with it – not realizing that an officer would meet her at the end of her path.

“Did you steal their sign?” the officer asked the feminist.

“I just moved it,” she responded.

“Well you took it,” the officer confirmed.

Beigel — who was also assaulted by another leftist last month — and his pro-life teammate captured the whole scene on their GoPros, and what unfolded was beautiful for the eyes to behold.

“I can’t believe y’all protect them,” she said attempting to walk away before the officer reminded her she wasn’t going anywhere.

“Right now you’re being detained,” he told her.

The young feminist then had the nerve to ask the officer why she was being detained. With a look of disbelief on his face, the officer responded, “Uhh…larceny. You stole his sign.”

I’m sure you can guess what happened at this point: the student pulled out her cherished “victim card.”

“I moved it 50 yards,” she said as she tried to weasel out of the situation.

“I don’t care if you moved it one foot,” the officer responded before he gave a needed lesson in ethics. “You don’t have the right to take someone’s property. Period. I don’t care what the circumstance is.”

“I know you may not agree with what’s being said,” he continued. “But you don’t have the right to take someone’s property. Okay?”

The officer consulted dispatch appearing to ask if he was okay to arrest the woman, and soon enough he placed the student under arrest.

“So listen, do we need to make this difficult and cause a scene?” the officer asked the lefty. “Take your backpack off, turn around, and put your hands behind your back.”

“I cannot believe this is happening,” she said while in shock. “Is there something else that I can do?”

“No. I just told you you’re under arrest,” the officer explained. “I cannot un-arrest you. The judicial system must do that.”

The feminist finally complied and she was led away in handcuffs and tears.

Here’s the video:

ABC The View’s Joy Behar wants pro-life men sterilized

The Cambridge Dictionary defines “feminine” as “having characteristics that are traditionally thought to be typical of or suitable for a woman”, such as soft, caring, loving, and maternal.

By the speech and behavior of contemporary feminists, the word “feminine” should be redefined as “hateful, malevolent, vicious, venomous, and evil”.

Self-professed feminists are in a meltdown over two recent pro-life laws:

  • On May 7, 2019, Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp signed into law HB 481: Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, aka fetal heartbeat bill, to which feminists, led by has-been actress Alyssa Milano, reacted by threatening a sex strike and a boycott of the state of Georgia.
  • On May 15, 2019, Alabama’s Republican governor Kay Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act— America’s most restrictive anti-abortion law that makes it a felony for doctors to perform or attempt to perform an abortion in the state. The new law allows no exceptions for rape or incest but does allow for abortions in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.

The Alabama pro-life law so enraged feminist and author Jill Filipovic that she proclaims men are to be made incontinent, their pubic bones crushed, and a quarter inch be “required” to be “cut off of a man’s penis for every pregnancy he creates”.

Not to be outdone by Filipovic in viciousness, Joy Behar, the medusa co-host of the execrable ABC daytime talkshow, The View, calls for the forced sterilization of the men who’d voted for the Alabama Human Life Protection Act.

As reported by Kristine Marsh for NewsBusters, on May 15, 2019, the hosts of ABC’s The View criticized the abortion banning bill that was passed in the Alabama Senate the night before. Co-host Joy Behar cried sexism, while Whoopi Goldberg complained about religion influencing politics.

After introducing the topic, Behar sneered that the men who voted for this bill should be forced to be sterilized. She asked, “Can we look at the panel of men who did this? What do they have in common?” as the producers put a giant image of the twenty-five Republican Senators who passed the bill.

Behar answered her own question: “They’re all men. All white guys.”

The audience of women chuckled.

Behar then said: “Maybe we should make it a law they should all be required to get a vasectomy. That would solve the problem.”

The audience cheered uproariously and applauded their approval.

To watch the video of this segment of The View, go to NewsBusters.

Here’s what Joy Behar and the audience of The View really look like:

Feminist Jill Filipovic reacts to Alabama pro-life law: Cut ¼ inch off a man’s penis for every pregnancy!

Liberalism is way, way worse than a mental disorder.

The Left are evil.

Already hysterical over Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp’s signing of the fetal heartbeat bill into law, with has-been actress Alyssa Milano calling for a sex strike in protest, the Left are now foaming-in-the-mouth rabid over Alabama’s near-total ban on abortion.

Two days ago, on May 15, 2019, Alabama’s Republican governor Kay Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act— America’s most restrictive anti-abortion law that makes it a felony for doctors to perform or attempt to perform an abortion in the state. The new law allows no exceptions for rape or incest but does allow for abortions in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.

See DCG’s post on prominent pro-aborts’ reaction to Alabama’s new law, and my post, “Ohio Will Permanently Defund All 26 Planned Parenthood Clinics“.

Jill Filipovic, 35, is an avowed feminist, an attorney and writer. She’s a New York Times columnist, blogs at Cosmopolitan and The Huffington Post, and is the author of The H Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness who once asked American women to “divorce [their] Republican husbands” over now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Seven hours after Governor Ivey tweeted that she had signed the Alabama Human Life Protection Act into law, Filipovic posted this venomous and truly evil tweet:

Pregnancy and childbirth cause serious and permanent changes to many women’s bodies. Require that a quarter inch be cut off of a man’s penis for every pregnancy he creates and see how quick we are to force women to indelibly risk and chance their bodies.

Here’s a screenshot of Filipovic’s tweet in the event she takes it down:

Filipovic promptly followed her “cut off men’s penis” tweet with another one calling for men to be made incontinent and their pubic bones be fractured:

Honestly what if we just forced a quarter of men to be incontinent with every pregnancy they created? Fractured a third of their public [sic] bones for every child? That would be unconscionable. It’s also what’s pregnancy means for women.

Would you believe Filipovic actually has a husband?

In February 2018, she married Ty McCormich, a foreign correspondent who was the Africa editor at Foreign Policy magazine from 2015 to 2018.

Imagine his terror if he ever impregnates her.

Actress Alyssa Milano calls for sex strike to protest Georgia pro-life heartbeat law

The source of the GIF is this YouTube video

In late March, 50 Hollyweirdos signed a letter threatening to boycott the state of Georgia for the state Senate’s approval of HB 481: Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, aka fetal heartbeat bill, which recognizes unborn children as “natural persons” and that the “full value of a child begins when a heartbeat exists” — typically at six weeks’ gestation.

See “Alyssa Milano and 50 Hollyweirdos sign letter threatening to boycott Georgia for prolife ‘heartbeat’ bill

To Georgia’s credit, the state legislators and Governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, refused to be bullied. Georgia’s House of Representatives also approved the bill, which Governor Kemp signed into law last Tuesday, May 7, 2019, which bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected — usually around six weeks of pregnancy. The state previously prohibited abortion after 20 weeks, with exceptions.

In response to Georgia, the blood-thirsty Hollyweirdos, led by the has-been and rode-hard actress Alyssa Milano, 46, are stepping up their bullying.

Desperate for attention, Milano exposed her sagging, middle-aged boobs in a low-cut blouse at SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing, October 2018

On May 10, 2019, Milano called for a sex-strike by women to protest Georgia’s fetal heartbeat law. She posted this tweet:

Here are some hilarious responses to her tweet:

“Yaay!!”

“Thank you for taking yourself out of the gene pool.”

“Great idea. Liberal extinction.”

“No One Cares”

“You mean abstinence? Cool.”

“That’s probably the best choice you did in your life. Keep up the good work.”

“YESSSS. Do us all a favor and NOT have sex if you intend on having an ABORTION!!! GREAT IDEA!!! KUDOS….MAGA”

“Yes! Great idea! Please have as many abortion supporters do this as possible. That way laws about abortion will become unnecessary and we won’t have to debate this anymore.”

“Abortion isn’t a ‘reproductive right.’ You do not have the ‘right’ to kill another human being just because it’s dependent on you. Also, if you stop having sex you won’t get pregnant anyway….that how it works if no one has told you yet.”

”So you’re going to preach body autonomy by telling other women what to do with their bodies? While marginalizing women by suggesting their only power in this comes from between their legs?”

“I think I speak for countless people when I say that I believe you should take a . Indefinitely. I hope you get the help you so clearly need.”

“Whenever I need a good laugh I come to this account. It never fails”

NO. JUST NO: Ohio bar offers menstrual-themed drink to support women’s shelter

There’s got to be better ways to support a cause that won’t make patrons want to throw up. Maybe a donation jar or tabletop signs promoting the shelter? Just a thought that isn’t so “visceral.”

From Fox News: For a bar in Ohio, it’s always that time of the month, and not everybody is happy about it.

A restaurant/bar in Lakewood, OH, caused controversy online when they unveiled their new berry margarita that comes garnished with a tampon. According to the bar’s Facebook post, one dollar from every purchase will be donated to a nearby women’s shelter.

Yuzu, an izakaya (casual Japanese pub) inspired bar, promoted the new drink on Facebook by posting “it’s that time of the month, time for a new menu that is…” The drink, called the Even Can’t Literally, is a berry margarita that comes garnished with a tampon. According to one of the restaurant’s bartenders, however, the tampon is optional.

Fox 8 in Cleveland reports that Sarah Krueger, the drink’s creator, told them “we also decided if someone doesn’t want the actual tampon in their drink, they can donate that tampon as well. They can get the drink and say ‘donate the tampon, we just want the drink’ and we’ll still donate the dollar to the woman’s shelter.”

Unfortunately, not everyone on Facebook thinks that the drink is a good idea. One user commented “You know you could have just donated those tampons to the women’s shelter, right? Where they need tampons? Okay, cool. Just making sure.” Another user said “round of applause Yuzu! I didn’t think it was possible, but you guys took a charitable cause for women and still managed to degrade female bodily functions and mock female vernacular with the drink name.”

Another user also took issue with the name, asking “Anyone else notice that the name of the drink is misogynistic too? Making fun of the way women talk?”

In a statement obtained by Fox News, Yuzu’s owner, David Bumba, said “it’s completely understandable at first reaction why some people may have had a visceral reaction to our fundraising efforts. This was a concept created by our female staff to raise money for a local women’s shelter, the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center. Our goal is also to spark an important conversation about the advocacy of women’s health issues, ignite awareness and action towards the needs of local women’s shelters, and dispel archaic attitudes about women’s bodies. The reality is that in our modern world, we are bombarded with an endless amount of advertisements and distractions. It takes something impactful to cut above the noise to get people’s attention. These are important issues that need to be discussed and it’s often easier to simply ignore them. We have received an overwhelming amount of support to continue our mission. We understand our concept is a topic for debate but at the end of the day, it’s about raising awareness and coming together to help those in need.”

A ‘Playboy’ movement: Hollyweird actress Anjelica Huston defends child rapist Polanski

From Daily Mail: Legendary actress Anjelica Huston has jumped to the defense of maligned Hollywood figures Woody Allen, Roman Polanski and Jeffrey Tambor – but she still thinks beloved comedian Bill Murray is a ‘s**t’.

In an outspoken and unabashed interview published in New York Magazine, the 67-year-old admitted she’d work with Allen again ‘in a second’ despite allegations reemerging that the filmmaker abused his daughter, Dylan O’Sullivan Farrow, when she was just seven.

‘Two states investigated him,’ Huston, who has worked on two films with Allen, noted. ‘And neither of them prosecuted him,’ she added – reaffirming that she’d jump at an opportunity to collaborate with him again.

Huston’s stance marks a stark contrast to other Hollywood stars, such as Greta Gerwig, Timothée Chalamet and Colin Firth, who have all recently voiced regret about working with Allen.

In the same vein of questioning, the Oscar-winner was also asked about director Roman Polanski’s 1977 sex abuse case, in which he raped a 13-year-old girl in the home of Jack Nicholson, who was Huston’s boyfriend at the time.

Present at the residence as the assault took place, Huston insisted Polanski’s actions were part of ‘a whole playboy movement’ and can’t be judged by today’s standards of sexual abuse because it was simply a different time.

‘It’s a story that could’ve happened in ten years before in England or France or Italy or Spain or Portugal, and no one would’ve heard anything about it,’ Huston said. She added that that approaching underage girls was simply ‘de rigueur for most of the guys like Roman who had grown up with the European sensibility.

‘That’s how these guys enjoy their time,’ she claimed.

Christian seminary president doesn’t believe in Resurrection, Virgin Birth, Heaven or miracles

Revelation 1:17-18

“I am the first and the last, the one who lives.
Once I was dead, but now I am alive forever and ever.”

Union Theological Seminary (UTS) in New York City is the oldest independent seminary “in the Christian tradition”. Founded in 1836 by members of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A, the non-denominational UTS has an endowment of $108 million and is a bastion of “progressive Christianity” and the birthplace of Black theology, womanist theology, and other theological movements. (Wikipedia)

Although UTS’s founding constitution stated the seminary’s goal was to “promote” the “Kingdom of Christ”, and professors were required to affirm they believed “the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the word of God” and the “only infallible rule of faith and practice,” today’s UTS is more about “progressive” ideology than religion, which is made clear in its “About” page:

Today, the Seminary lives out this formative call to service by training people of all faiths and none who are called to the work of social justice in the world. With roots that are firmly planted in the Protestant tradition, Union actively reforms itself in response to the changing needs of the world and an evolving understanding of what it means to be faithful.

Even worse, the president of Theological Seminary (and its Johnston Family Professor for Religion and Democracy), Serene Jones, 59, formerly the Titus Street Professor of Theology at Yale Divinity School and chair of Gender, Woman, and Sexuality Studies at Yale University, doesn’t even believe in the fundamental tenets of Christianity.

Michael Foust reports for Christian Headlines, April 25, 2019, that in an interview with Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times for an article published Easter weekend, Serene Jones rejects these fundamental beliefs of Christianity:

(1) The Resurrection

Jones, the president of a Christian seminary, does not believe in the literal bodily resurrection of Christ. She said: “When you look in the Gospels, the stories are all over the place. There’s no resurrection story in Mark, just an empty tomb. Those who claim to know whether or not it happened are kidding themselves…. Crucifixion is not something that God is orchestrating from upstairs. The pervasive idea of an abusive God-father who sends his own kid to the cross so God could forgive people is nuts. For me, the cross is an enactment of our human hatred. But what happens on Easter is the triumph of love in the midst of suffering. Isn’t that reason for hope?”

(2) Miracles

Jones rejects the idea that God miraculously heals through prayer: “I don’t believe in a God who, because of prayer, would decide to cure your mother’s cancer but not cure the mother of your nonpraying neighbor. We can’t manipulate God like that.”

(3) Virgin Birth

Jones said: “I find the virgin birth a bizarre claim. It has nothing to do with Jesus’ message. The virgin birth only becomes important if you have a theology in which sexuality is considered sinful. It also promotes this notion that the pure, untouched female body is the best body, and that idea has led to centuries of oppressing women.”

(4) Heaven

Nor does Jones believe in Heaven, Hell or an afterlife, all of which implies she does not believe that humans have immoral souls. Asked what happens when people die, Jones responded, “I don’t know! There may be something, there may be nothing. My faith is not tied to some divine promise about the afterlife.”

(5) God

For that matter, it is doubtful whether Serene Jones even believes in the Christian understanding of God.

Asked how we can reconcile an “omnipotent, omniscient God” with evil and suffering, Jones responded: “At the heart of faith is mystery. God is beyond our knowing, not a being or an essence or an object. But I don’t worship an all-powerful, all-controlling omnipotent, omniscient being. That is a fabrication of Roman juridical theory and Greek mythology.”

Despite not believing in the fundamental tenets that make Christianity, Jones nevertheless calls herself Christian. When Kristof asked her if he can be considered a Christian though not believing in a virgin birth or resurrection, Jones answered, “Well, you sound an awful lot like me, and I’m a Christian minister.”

R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., said Jones rejects the “entire edifice of orthodox, biblical Christianity.” Mohler wrote:

“This is not Christianity. This is a new religion, a new god, formed in an image intended not to offend modern secular sensibilities. She has constructed a god from post-modern theology that in no way resembles the God of the Bible – the one true God…. [Jones denies] the reality of the resurrection, the necessity of the virgin birth, the attributes of God, the power of prayer, and the existence of heaven and hell. According to Jones, there is no cross on which Jesus died for sin, there is no Father who sent the Son to pay our ransom, there is no bodily resurrection of Christ from the dead as a sign and seal of God’s promises – indeed, she has denied everything that makes the gospel good news. She even denies that God is a ‘being’…. Why would anyone identify as a Christian minister and then deny the entire superstructure of Christian theology? What we see here is a hope to replace biblical Christianity with a new religion without anyone noticing.”

Below is my rebuttal to Serene Jones’ apostasy:

    1. Easter Sunday: The science of the miracle of the Resurrection
    2. Tomb of Christ in Church of Holy Sepulchre surrounded by electromagnetic field
    3. New evidence dates Shroud of Turin to time of Christ
    4. Yet more evidence dating Shroud of Turin to time of Christ 
  2. On Virgin Birth, see:
    1. Sunday Devotional: The child to be born will be the Son of God,” on DNA evidence of Virgin Birth.
  3. On miracles (defined as phenomena that are not explicable by natural or scientific laws), see:
    1. The Smell of Rain
    2. Drowning men saved by a force
    3. The Miracle of the Sinking SUV
    4. The mysterious voice calling for help

    11. Fallen into the hollow of a tree, 9 y.o. girl met Jesus and unborn sister

  4. On Heaven, Hell, the soul, and afterlife, see:
    1. The Physics of Heaven
    2. Marine’s near-death experience of Hell
    3. Physicists discover humans have souls
    4. Study by 32 scientists shows there’s consciousness after death

Feminist restaurant that imposes 18% ‘gender surcharge’ on men will close for good

Handsome Her is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Brunswick, an inner-city suburb of Melbourne, Australia, which describes itself as “Community based cafe focussing on female empowerment, social responsibility and environmental justice. All vegan all day.”

Handsome Her is also a feminist restaurant that gives priority seating to female customers. In 2017, the restaurant attracted headlines for righting the alleged “gender pay gap” by charging men extra with an 18% “gender surcharge”. At the time, the cafe’s management claimed the attention left them “jam-packed with customers showing their support”.

Calling the restaurant “feminist” is actually a misnomer. Handsome Her more properly should be identified as a lesbian restaurant, as shown by a recent post on the restaurant’s Facebook page promoting a lesbian speed-dating event.

Alas, all good things must come to an end.

Paul Joseph Watson reports for Summit News, April 23, 2019, that Handsome Her, which only opened a few years ago, is closing for good on April 28.

Out of 52 reviews on Trip Advisor, Handsome Her received only 18 “excellent”, one “average”, 3 “poor”, and 30 “terrible” ratings. John P. from Sydney, Australia, who visited the restaurant in August 2017, gave it a one-star “terrible” rating. He wrote:

I was in Melbourne on business recently and a friend of mine recommended this cafe. What a shame I listened to her. It took 5 minutes to get the attention of a waitress who seemed to be more interested in chatting to her friends, rather than serving a customer who’d just walked through the door. I was eventually seated and chose the gnocchi paired with the suggested pinot noir. The gnocchi arrived and I was bitterly disappointed. The gnocchi was very undercooked and had a floury texture, the mushrooms were burnt and the dish lacked any real flavour. The only enjoyable part of the meal was the wine. I left most of my meal on the plate and finished my wine.

When I asked for the bill, the waitress asked if there was a problem with my meal, since I’d left most of it on my plate. When I told her of my dissatisfaction with the meal, she morphed into an aggressive and irate woman who then started dispatching some rather vile language. Not wanting to cause a scene, I subsequently left the requisite cash on the table, which included a 15% tip, and promptly walked out. As I was walking past the register on the way out, I could hear the same woman telling the other waitress working with her that I was a “vile beast” and that I “wasn’t welcome here again”.

I certainly won’t be coming back. One of the worst experiences I’ve had in quite some time.
