Local website Barstool Sports, long known for its sophomoric brand of humor, exploitation of women, and anti-lgbt rants is at it again.

In a post on the site, a writer known as elpresidente has posted a piece in which he comments on the opening of Boston Chops, a new steakhouse located in the South End.

Among other things, the writer claims that "everybody knows gays don’t eat meat. Like aren’t 80% of gayballs vegetarians?" And goes on to state, "Bottomline is men eat steak. Big burly men like me. Powerful men. Not gayballs."

Finishing the post with, "Steak is for heteros."

As homophobic rants go, this one is pretty weak and not particularly original. And judging by the crowds at Boston Chops recently it looks like the restaurant is doing just fine without elpresidente and his big burly friends.
