Steve Horner, profiled in Las Vegas newspaper, still hates Ladies' Night
|Steve Horner isn't gay just because he dislikes ladies' night|
Horner began his campaign against ladies' night 20 years ago at a bar in the Mall of America. The Las Vegas Review-Journal chronicled that crusade in a Sunday feature headlined "'The Unusual Steve Horner' battles feminism."
"People ask me, 'Steve, are you gay? Do you not like women? Was your mother a bitch?'" Horner says. "That, to me, is like asking women why they don't like NASCAR. Does she not like men? No, she doesn't like the loud noise and toxic fumes."
Since 1992, Horner has moved around the country filing equal rights complaints against ladies' nights in a quest he compares to Rosa Parks' refusal to give up her bus seat.

"When I first read it it was really quite humbling. I felt like I was getting pummeled from all sides, not feeling so strong about myself and my principles and my objectives," Horner says.
But that self-doubt didn't last long.
"I gave it some time and I spoke to [the reporter] this morning, and I said: on second thought, you really do hit a lot of issues. Abortion, and feminism, and women's rights, and men's rights, and my family, and Tom running for Governor," Horner explains.
Horner was especially pleased by the article's "great" headline.
"I'm honored to be known as 'unusual' in today's society," Horner said. "I think today's society is degenerate and completely upside-down."
Many of today's problems can be traced back to ladies' night, he says, which shows that women are "hypocritical" when they say they want equal rights.
"When it's 'Tits Up at the Bar' time, and I know I can say that in
City Pages, then the consistency in law enforcement goes out the window. Then
it's favor time," Horner says. "Ladies' night is the perfect storm in civil rights"
"He isn't wrong," Mannix said. "But no one really cares. It's not an issue anyone has ever, or will ever, bring up again."Previous
