A man identified only as "Stuart" is demanding a refund from LGBTQ nightclub Push The Button after attending their "Huge NYE Party 2018." It seems his evening was going great until he looked over and saw — gasp — men kissing! This, of course, forced Stuart and his girlfriend to leave the event early, which he believes is the fault of the event's organizers.


Rob Holley, who DJ's and promotes for Push the Button, tweeted pictures of Stuart's email:

In his email, Stuart claims he "had to leave" because he wasn't aware it was a "GBLT" evening.

Rob followed up, asking Stuart why he "had to" leave.

Stuart explained that he's "not homophobic" but his New Year's Eve was ruined by being at a "gay evening."

Unfortunately for Stuart, it was made abundantly clear what kind of event he was going to...

The sight of men kissing is, apparently, what caused Stuart's discomfort.

Stuart had tried to get a refund the night before, only to be turned down.

Stuart tried to end the exchange by calling Rob "an ignorant individual with no empathy."

In the end, Stuart showed his true colors.

On Twitter, Rob offered a final message, pointing out that Stuart would have gotten his refund if he'd been nice about it.




Twitter users were united in their annoyance with Stuart and admiration of Rob.



Even if you wouldn't do it, seeing men kissing shouldn't ruin a New Year's Eve.


People called out Stuart for his self-righteous attitude and not-so-subtle homophobia.



We applaud Holley's deft handling of an infuriating situation! We hope Stuart goes to the right party in 2020 — the one where he and his girlfriend stay home, away from progressive society that makes him feel ICKY.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
