DJ At Gay Bar Kicks Out Woman Who Complained Song Choice Triggered Her

A woman who complained to a DJ about Robin Thicke single Blurred Lines because it brought back traumatising memories of being raped says she was publicly shamed and kicked out of the club.

Georgia Greenfield told the DJ at Queen’s Court in Leeds, Yorkshire, that the line ‘I know you want it’ was what her rapist said to her before she was attacked.

She apparently wrote a note on her phone to the DJ which read: “‘I know you want it’ are the exact words my rapist said to me before he raped me. I don’t want to hear this.”

The 23-year-old English graduate claimed that the DJ branded her a “silly b****” over the microphone before kicking her out of the gay club.

Shocked Georgia said: “I just stood there completely shocked and was like did that just happen?”  h/t JBR

    That is exactly what a bunch of armed thugs told me before trying to take my money.

        I’m sure I could get free lodging and 3 squares a day.

        Just curious, but is your avatar pic part of the album cover for Emerson Lake and Palmer’s Greatest Hits, or some such album?

    • Justin St.Denis

      We feel your pain.

  • Alain

    I am offended therefore I am. I hope to live long enough to see the day when people regain the courage and common sense to tell those claiming offence and therefore some kind of entitlement to buggar off and to ignore them.

    • lolwut?

      Seems that’s exactly what happened.

      Now we just need the courts and the Crazy town human rights commissions do the same.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I tell the offended to go fuck a grapefruit whenever they raise their whiny voices. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s satisfying. Sometimes I change the fruit from grapefruit to watermelon, or HoneyDew melon, or even pineapple! I like to embrace fruity diversity.

    • Petey

      A fellow and I did that to some millenial snowflake after she complained about him lighting up a cigarette a few yards downwind from a bus stop.

      No harm to anyone despite the signs.

      Didn’t the eff words fly from her.

      One guy called her on the swearing because there was very quite young children by.
      Her response was, “There are no signs against swearing.” That was it. That was her thinking.

      Effing ’em. Eff ’em all.

      • Petey

        So what I’m saying is, even in small groups you can shut these people down.

  • DaninVan

    Flash: you go to a public place you’re going to hear stuff that irritates you in any number of ways.
    (Just to be clear, I do empathize with her over having been raped.)

    • lolwut?

      If she was even raped. it could be just a made up story to get attention.

      • Blacksmith

        My thoughts as well.

      • ntt1

        was she a journalist then?

        • Joseph Shmeau

          She is a “23-year-old English graduate” and she was in a gay bar.

          The defence rests.

    • Blacksmith

      Strangely enough the entire world does NOT revolve around her.

      On another point her whining makes me uncomfortable, it actually pisses me off, she should therefore apologize to me and, make me a sammich!

      • Justin St.Denis

        Even in her alleged rapist’s world, her name barely merits a mention. She needs to know that.

  • kkruger71

    WTF did we do before this? I’ve had situations where something brought back horrible memories, so you know what I did? I exited the situation so as to not bring everyone else down. This isn’t even the peanut/perfume type argument where there is some sort of physical risk, or a school or work environment where leaving isn’t an option. Clubs are no longer allowed to play a number 1 single because it brought back a bad memory for her? I bet if you looked there isn’t a single song out there that doesn’t have a horrible connotation for somebody, with the possible exception of Safety Dance. That song’s just fun.

      different times, different outlook; everyone is offended. It offends me that at my work they have us take anti-racism courses. How dare they assume I am a racist? Not to mention the nonsense of instructions how to wash your hands in every washroom. Ban public washrooms, I say!!!!

      • FactsWillOut

        Yeah. They tell you to use the paper towel to turn off the taps, but they force one to touch the doorknob to leave.

        • Surele Surele

          Oh, no. they removed all the paper towels: we have to use hand dryers. Electrical. Did you ever try to turn off a tap using an electric hand dryer? It’s a bitch, I tell you. But the posters remain unchanged.

          • Blacksmith

            Not to mention all the microbes that are now airborne from the blower.

        • lolwut?

          They banned doorknobs in BC last year.

          Not because of that, but people with disabilities who have problems using them.

          So if you need to go to the can, come to BC. lol

          • Justin St.Denis

            Proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that KNOBS form the majority of B.C. politicians (and the people who voted for them). The Wild West has evolved into The Whiny West. Must be the high percentage of fruits and nuts who live there.

          • ntt1

            you forgot the flakes thousands of flakes

          • Alain

            Actually unless I am totally mistaken that was Vancouver with their Tides funded mayor, not all of BC.

          • lolwut?

            Ah well, so many stupid things these morons in BC come up with
            Backyard chickens, Condo gardens, Crackpipe vending machines,

            community gardens and stupid composting rules that have caused an already enormous rat problem to explode…..Building housing for junkies and the “Hard to house” in the same buildings as $150-250,000 condos. the list goes on and on and on.

            Vancouver is a giant toilet floating in a beautiful toilet.
            can’t wait until I can afford to move up the coast to a barely populated community.

          • Alain

            All that is again Vancouver with their Tides funded mayor to support the UN Agenda 21.

          • lolwut?

            Same kind of shit is going on in Victoria and Abbotsford to name a couple of places, it’s not just Vancouver., They just embrace that sort of nuttiness a little quicker then the rest.

            If you’re a junkie they’ll hand you a key to the city.

          • ntt1

            while i live north of Vancouver i haven;t been downtown for at least five years, moon beam has made the big smoke hostile to car traffic and the straight white males that drive them.

          • ntt1

            this is true but the flap type door handle lever can be opened with an elbow. i installed them in my house because you can open the door while loaded with kids ,cats. groceries, and while my disabilities seem limited to moral ones , they are quite useful.

          • lolwut?

            I’m not against it, but that is the least of BC issues. They could have made it a requirement on all new buildings without the fanfare making it out like levers on doors are the cure to all of Vancouver’s ills.

            That being said, the DTES is being cleaned up pretty good
            however one of the side effects is the junkies and other riff raff
            are beginning to feel the squeeze, violence in the area is now pretty common when it used to be rare.

            The jail at on Powell street behind 222 Main is being converting into a treatment center, maybe they’ll be holding these people a little longer.

      • Waffle

        If you’re white, you’re a racist ;);)

        • Surele Surele

          guilty…

      • Justin St.Denis

        I gave up being offended decades ago, around the same time that I realized that much of this world appalls me. Being offended is kid-stuff. To the finer educated mind, the appalling can nonetheless be very entertaining. Comedy films rarely make me laugh, but I get giddy at how appalling most things and people actually are whenever I step outside my home. Life and the world are fucking hysterical.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I get offended at things in the way Jerry Seinfeld does.
          When Watley, his dentist, converts to Judaism for the jokes, a priest in a confession booth asks him if that offends him as a Jew.
          Jerry says, no, it offends him as a comedian.

        • Surele Surele

          You’re so right. I just need to sit at my desk in my office. Just hilarious. Types passing in front of my desk, the questions they ask… sometimes you need all your strength to not burst out in laughter. Where are those people coming from?

          • Justin St.Denis

            My wife refers to their origins as Planet Elsewhere. I kinda like that label.

          • Surele Surele

            I like it too. May I borrow it?

          • Justin St.Denis

            Absolutely! I “borrowed it” a few years ago myself, and use it all the time. It fits in so many situations. 😉

    • canminuteman

      One of my mess mates at CFB Petawawa was an artillery officer. he was telling me about being the range safety officer for a battery of 105 howitzers, and how he had to run around to each gun after a fire order had been given to ensure that they were all properly aimed. He referred to this evolution as the “Safety Dance”, I can’t hear that song without remembering that story.

    • lolwut?

      Most people don’t even know what a lot of famous songs are even about.

      A prime example: The Police: “Every breath you take”
      it’s a song about a guy stalking his ex-girlfiend, but girls love dancing to it.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TH_YbBHVF4g

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        This is my favourite REM song.
        And it’s a stalker song, too.
        I never got the girl.
        But, I was right.
        She didn’t care about that guy she was making it with.
        Did me a favour in the end.
        She didn’t choose me, either.

      • Clausewitz

        I play in a couple of wedding bands and this is one of the most requested first songs. My reply is, “You really need to go back and listen to the lyrics”. It’s a freakin’ stalker song you idiots.

      And MONY MONY, too. Some songs are sacred!

  • Cat-astrophe

    Well, how about that.
    She found out how compassionate her brethren really are.
    You came here to be gay beeautch, so be gay! Only tell you troubles to the straight folks, ’cause we here are quite insane.

  • I find overhearing Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham potentially problematic as many enjoy sleeping in.

    OT:
    Guy walks into a Muslim bookstore in the States. Owner comes up to him and says “Can I help you?”, guy says “Yes, I was looking for Donald Trump’s book on illegal immigration, especially as it applies to Muslims.” Owner say “Fuck off and get outta here! And don’t come back!” Guy says “Yep, That’s the one!”.

    • Cat-astrophe

      I just wish Wholesale Muslim immigration was laughable.

    • funnyboy

      love it!!!!!

    • Justin St.Denis

      My very strange wife ( sorry Waffle! There I go again, flaunting my heteronormative private life!) once walked into a muslim bookstore in downtown Toronto and innocently asked the proprietor if he had any copies of the Kama Sutra “…you know, the one about all the Hindu sex positions. It’s always illustrated and usually in color. Do you have one?” The proprietor looked as if he was having a stroke! Funny shit! My wife still cracks me up after all these years…

      Unfortunately, the rest of us have to watch. On the bright side, one can always play MY SHARONA at earsplitting volume while singing all the dirty lyrics. Good times.

  • Justin St.Denis

    So, is this bitch planning on calling every radio station that plays the song when they play it, editing her friends’ music collections in order to remove that song, complaining to mall/restaurant management whenever the song comes over their speakers, and generally behave like an attention-seeking toddler for the rest of her fucking life? Oh, excuse me! Fucking will NOT be on her agenda, I suspect. Ever. My bad.

    Snowflakes melt. Tough shit.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I have to listen to all the Can Con bullshit they play on 92 SHITI FM at work every day.
      My ears get raped by Sloan, Tom Cochrane, Neil Young, The Tea Party (aka the Fake Doors), Moist.
      And 54 40 had other songs beside Ocean Pearl.
      It was called Baby Ran.

      • Al_the_Fish

        You can always listen to Dahlia on CJOB instead of 92.
        Yes, I just macro-aggressed you. 😉

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Tell you what.
          I’d rather that Dahlia than the god awful Richard Cloutier.
          Especially when he gets all earnest and compassionate like a goddamned Maury Povich.

    So much for the British stiff upper lip. Keep it to yourself lady. No one wants to here about your problems.

      The stoic tradition of the British stiff upper lip died with a car crash in a Paris auto tunnel.
