A Canadian man's homophobic rant has gone viral—but he's kind of wishing it hadn't.

Reese Buhr and a few friends were standing outside of nightclub 441 Main talking amongst themselves.


The doorman of the club could hear the conversation and heard all of the homophobic things being said. By the time Reese Buhr made it up to the door, the door man had heard enough.

He denied the group entry because 441 Main is a space for everyone and the groups hateful attitudes would make other patrons uncomfortable. Most of the group took the rejection in stride, but not Reese.

He responded by hopping on Instagram and live streaming a horribly homophobic rant, pretty much proving that the doorman was 100% right to deny him entry.

In the first video, which is just over two minutes long, Reese claims he "f*cking hates gays" and wants that put on record. He then rants about how homosexuality should be illegal and how his rights as a straight person are gone and now only "queers" have rights.

Reese pines for a time when men could be thrown in jail for "sticking their d**ks in other people's arses" and then tells his viewers that he is angry and off to "do something about it."

He deleted the video, but not before someone got it and put it on Twitter.

Apparently someone agreed with him because he posted a second video thanking his supporters. He followed that up by claiming that straight people are being put down for their sexuality even though heterosexuality is"

"the good sexuality. We're straight. We're the way God intended it."

The night club has absolutely no regrets about denying him entry, especially now that his posts have proven the doorman right. Reese's threat to "do something" about gays really recalls the sorts of things said just before the fatal Pulse nightclub shooting where 49 lives were lost.

441 Main has taken to social media to double down on their support for the LGBTQ+ community.

The owner was clear with news stations—441 Main is a place where sexuality and gender do not matter.

All that matters is that you want to have a good time.


Twitter is pretty unimpressed with Reese.

People called him out hard—even some people who had been following him for a while before this. Evidently Reese has a history of this sort of thing, and more.

His Twitter account is now suspended, by the way.














Reese did eventually post a very short apology video.

He apologized to security and anyone he might have offended and then busted out the classic line "this isn't me."



Twitter responded with a collective, "Nah, homie, that's all you."








Long story short, we don't think Reese will be out at a club for a while—and based on the things people who know him personally are saying, that's probably a good thing.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
