Thanks to those who pointed out that "sausage fest" is transphobic. Tweet deleted with apologies; it was unthinking & insensitive.

Unless we are having brats, then it's ok, right?
Huh? I need me some back story.
There is no back story
Then what's this about, and why should I care?
Ummmm...it refers to a party when only guys show up, and no women. It is a term of sadness in the heteronormative-cismale-American community. A term that brings about thoughts of shame and regret.Such a term should only be used by heteronormative-cismale-Americans and use by any others is cultural appropriation! We have feelings! We have rights! And we demand those rights! For too long we have sat as we were mocked but no longer!We want free cases of light beer!We demand the return of American Gladiator to television!We demand backyard campfires and barbecues to be free and unlicensed - no hassling by either the man or the ma'am!Respect the mullet!No par-tay? No peace!No par-tay? No peace!No par-tay? No peace!No par-tay? No peace!- Mikey NTH
And then we have brats? I like me some brats, with sauerkraut.
Well, sure. A barbecue free of the man and the ma'am can have brats, and kielbasas. And plenty of beer.And then the campfire, and the loud music of the decade of the youth of the guy whose backyard we are in will sound out.Those nights are made for awesome.-Mikey NTH-Mikey NTH
