How do the badlands compare to Camden?
I went to Camden i the mid 90s ,I Told the guy I was with
OMG this is the scariest ghetto Iíve ever seen.
He laughed and said that was the nice part of Camden.



I can't speak to Camden in the 90's...that was before my time. But 2000-2009 Camden seemed ok to me. I used to ride my bike across the Ben Franklin Bridge to the Camden water front several times a year. Nice Aquarium, single A minor league baseball stadium. Bad players, but cheap beer and a fun time. Rutgers had a campus there that was pretty nice as well. Probably some bad parts of town that I wasn't familiar with and had no reason to go to.

But comparing the Camden I saw to the badlands...no comparison. The badlands were burned out buildings, rubble, few businesses that were open....maybe a corner store selling cigarettes and liquor, with employees behind bullet proof glass. Lots of drugs, prostitutes and shady people popping out of the shadows. The kind of place even the police vacate after dark.

Come to think of it, I do miss South Philly girls down on the South Jersey Shore. They were legendary.

You know the Jersey Shore thing is one of those Philly things I didn't get to experience. :( I spent a good part of 5 years in Atlantic City, but that was for blackjack/gambling purposes. And I did two Irish weekends in Wildwood in September a couple years, but that was about drinking. I never got to do the young Philly people hanging out in Wildwood or Ocean City all summer. But then again, my teenage years (live at home) didn't take place in Philly. By the time I got to Philly, I had to get a job and support myself.

Despite still spending a ton of time in AC/Ventnor, I was never a huge fan of the Jersey Shore. You might have liked Rehoboth Beach DE....I am 100% heterosexual but always had a good time at the gay bars there.

Why do you say 100% heterosexual? Is there 98% heterosexual? 94%? Is that into Bisexual territory? lol I am just playing with you.

People on these gambling boards, seem to have stereotyped me. I AM gay. I long ago decided I wouldn't deny, or run from that. But that doesn't define me (except on these forums I guess). I am a huge sports guy. Played sports (not tennis....not that there is anything wrong with that) in high school. Still play a lot of sports on weekends. And am a huge sports fan, especially Eagles and Villanova basketball. I drink beer, not wine. I don't like shopping. I don't particularly like musicals, although I did enjoy "best little whorehouse in Texas". I thought that was funny and enjoyable.

I did the gay bar scene in Philly and occasionally visit one here in Vegas, but it is not my favorite scene. I would much rather sit at a sports bar for a couple hours watching a game with a couple friends (the 100% straight kind. LOL).

So that out of the way, one of the bartenders from the bar I frequented in Phila, a straight sports bar, and this guy is very straight, so his family owned a house in Rehoboth, that he and his adult siblings shared on weekends. And he used to talk about hanging out in the gay bars in Rehoboth with his straight friends, male and female, even the female that he was with that weekend. I guess the gay bars are kind of mainstream there? Is that right?

I don't necessarily agree, but I'll give you credit for that one and I suspect most people would agree with you. lol

Iíd say a married guy who tried gay stuff once and didnít like it is somewhere in the range of 94% heterosexual.

The bars we went to were pretty tame. Everyone dressed normal, not much PDA or provocative dancing. Seemed like a lot of wealthier gay people.

I always went with my girlfriend and other friends with their wives. It was presumably obvious we were all straight so no one ever got hit on, but the staff was welcoming and the patrons were always super friendly and conversational.

What was the reason you were escorted out if Walmart?

Hehe!! can't say. Let's just say I was I was using a product of theirs and minding my own business and not doing anything illegal, against their rules, unethical or being a nuisance whatsoever. Occasionally I would need assistance and would ask extremely nicely. Most times different managers were never helpful. I would usually let's just say leave the store and leave the situation in a state where another customer would have to ask for help and they may be more inclined to help them instead of me. Over the course of a few months I suppose the main manager saw me one too many times even if I didn't ask him for anything and just decided to kick me out. This wasn't an every day thing, couple times a week.
