Pop quiz, hotshot:
You’re in a public park bathroom in Titusville, FL. You’re a rather wimpy middle-aged white man. You look over into a closed bathroom stall and see a “pretty stocky black guy”. Since there are “nothing but other black guys around in the park”, you find that you are “afraid of becoming a statistic”. Do you:
a.) realize that your fears are unfounded and that the large black guy in question probably just had to use the bathroom;
b.) quietly leave the bathroom (which shouldn’t be a problem, since your feared attacker is shut up in a stall), get in your car, and retreat to a safer environment; or
c.) let yourself into the stall and offer the guy $20 to let you blow him.
It’s sad that Rep. Allen felt it was better to come off as a racist and an idiot than to admit that he was cruising for anonymous gay sex, but he was probably right.
(Who the hell pays to give a blowjob? I can’t say I know much about anonymous gay hookups, but I always imagined that a guy looking to give head wouldn’t have much trouble finding opportunities to do so for free.)
