A Gay Mexican Guy with a Mohawk


I went to get my hair cut at lunch. There was one guy waiting ahead of me and two stylists — a woman, and a gay Mexican guy with a Mohawk.

Am I a bad person for praying that Mohawk would finish first (he did) and take the other guy?

My son says when he was in Washington, D.C., he saw shops where all the hair cutters were men.

“That’s different,” I explain. “Those are barbers. Barbers don’t mess around with you like stylists. I don’t want a gay guy with a Mohawk running his fingers through my hair. Note the fact that he’s a Mexican doesn’t matter at all. I mean, I’m not a racist or anything.”

    You would prefer a straight guy with a comb over running his fingers through your hair instead? Barbers not only cut hair, they shave you too. Nothing more straight than a guy lathering up another guy’s face with white cream, eh?

    Not a bad person.

    Not a racist.

    Something though.

    Maybe a homophone? No that’s not it. Heliophobe? No… Hemophobe? Ahhh, homophobe. That’s the one!

    Hi MS –

    I can vouch for the fact that HW doesn’t even know the meaning of the word “homophobia.”

    Of course, he doesn’t know the meaning of a lot of other big words either…
