Victoria, Texas, is right down the road from me and I hitch-hike down there several times a year to attend Democratic events because they have a very active and great Democratic Party involving some of my favorite people.
So, when the Cactus Canyon Club of Victoria, Texas, made the news for not allowing Justin Meyer and his boyfriend James Douglas to dance together, I was about to learn a whole mess of new stuff that I never knew before. When Justin and James tried to dance, the owner busted a gut.
Instead, they were confronted by the owner who told them they were not allowed to dance because they were men and due to unspecified ‘security reasons.’
‘He told me they have a policy that states that they don’t allow males to dance with males to country songs,’ Douglas recalled to KAVU-TV. ‘I said, “Just country?” and he said, “yes.”’
Now see, I didn’t know that. Men can dance with men to anything except country music. Oh, come on, admit it – you didn’t know that either.
And neither did real Texas men.

Maybe James and Justin need some big ole hats and some chaps.
The owner of the Cactus Canyon Club made another observation about social mores and norms …
Gearhart also added that while women have long been allowed to take it to the floor together in clubs around the country, the same does not necessarily applies to men.
I dunno why that is. I truly don’t. Must have something to do with ta-tas and really insecure men.
James and Justin. Major security threat.
Thanks to my friend Kary for the picture of the cowboys having a gay ole time.
