F Street Station in Anchorage.

F Street Station, one of the oldest and most beloved bars in Anchorage, is catching criticism from radical LGBTQ activists for commenting on the fact that politically correct culture will condemn a kid for dressing up like an Indian, while celebrating a grown man pretending to be a woman.

Inside the ambient downtown bar hangs a blackboard that regularly features famous, inspirational and sometimes thought provoking or suggestive quotes.

Recently the board featured this message:

“We now live in a world where your kid cannot pretend to be an Indian … but a grown man can pretend to be a woman.”

While it’s unclear exactly where the quip first originated, across the nation it has been emblazoned on t-shirts, hoodies and posters and widely bandied about on social media.

F Street Station has removed the post, but the bar and grill continues to receive blistering criticism from the LGBTQAI2+ community in Alaska, some vowing to never darken its doors again. Others have taken to restaurant and bar review sites to post negative comments about the watering hole.

Many conservatives, however, are offering messages of support and vowing to go out of their way to visit F Street Station, many for the first time.

Haylee Kurka, wife of former Rep. Christopher Kurka, reposted a photo of the quote at F Street Station, and has received many approving comments and likes, including some from Mat-Su politicians and other movers and shakers in the Valley.

For those who wish to check out the popular bar, they’re open daily from 10 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. Known for generous portions of Alaska seafood, French dip special, soup, homemade fries, calamari and much more, F Street also has a famous giant block of cheese which patrons can take slices from while waiting for their drinks.

    To the misinformed transgender that got their feelings hurt, grow up! What you do is your business, but don’t expect the rest of us to participate in your mental illness. And yes, a man can never ever for eternity be a woman. God decided your gender and your not half as powerful, nor as wise as God.

  • Neil DeWitt says:

    It’s really so sad now days if you tell the truth everyone gets BUTT HURT. Grow up your not getting a participation trophy being LGBTQ+, you’ll only get laughed at.

  • Steve P Peterson says:

    Too bad they took it down. We can never, never cave to these alphabet nazis.
    Still, though not a bar-goer, I might have to check this place out.

  • Dee Cee says:

    I just know that my French onion soup will tastes so much better when I don’t have to eat it next to a queer!

    • Mayo says:

      Did you PURPOSELY post that or was it a mistake you regret?

      • Lobo says:

        Some may ask the same question(s) of you.

      • Dee Cee says:

        Mayo: that was SARCASM. And bait. You fell right in.

      • Lobo says:

        When I post “sarcasm”, I add the “sarc” notation… I do that to be absolutely sure that I do not mislead anyone as to the nature of the comment…. So, there is a difference in falling for bait, and being mislead by mistake.

      • Aunt Sally says:

        Nobody normal wants a side of monkeypox with their lunch, Mayo, and I’d ask why you’re so butt-hurt but I just don’t want to know the answer.

  • North to Alaska says:

    Much rather bring my kids into this bar than into Anchorage school library. At least they will be safe from the groomers.

  • Kenai2 says:

    I seldom go to Anchorage. However! The next trip will include some quality time at the F Street Tavern as a top priority.

  • Johnny says:

    nothing about the LGBT is good, they shout inclusion and equality from their soapbox atop the roofs and then stab everyone in the back once turned, they aren’t any better then BLM or Antifa, all the same.

  • Steve P Peterson says:

    I’m sorry they took the sign down, we cannot cave to the alphabet nazis because they never have enough.
    Thank this establishment and patronize it.

  • AK Pilot says:

    F Street was never my favorite but it will be now!

  • Penny Seliger says:

    Thank you F Street Station for taking a stand.

  • Justin Ross says:

    I miss the 90s and 80s, a big thank you to my elders from that era!

  • James DeLong says:

    To the virtue signaling idiots tryin to close down F Street Station…go f*** yourself prettyboi

  • John J Otness says:

    Would love to hear those two little adopted boys opinion on this subject.

  • George Acevedo says:

    These comments would be expected twenty years ago. And it seems that many bigots are stuck back there. Your children and grandchildren will be too embarrassed to admit knowing you!

    • FreedomAk says:

      Bigots? No not really. This is the backlash of unlicensed opinion you can expect when you attempt to force others to accept your political and gender confused opinions. Live and let live I say. But try to coerce, bully or badger me to accept your delusions? Gonna get push back. Get used to it.

    • Aunt Sally says:

      For gosh sake, George, why can’t you leave the dress, the makeup, and the bad attitude at home for long enough to act normally and enjoy a fine lunch among normal people at a normal establishment where you’d be expected to use the men’s restroom for normal purposes? Is it really lost on you that you’re the problem?

  • Bruce Probert says:

    If your world is threatened by the truth, you live in a fantasy world!

  • PS says:

    So happy to see more people stating the obvious truth. What you do, or think you are, is your own business. But, when you try to force other people to take part in your fantasy world, they will eventually push back. The left is never happy and they will continue to push their agenda until there is nowhere else to go. Then they will destroy each other.

  • Mama Tried... says:

    F Street Station sounds like my kinda place. These days I’m always looking for my kinda places. Will have to stop in on my next trip through Anchorage.

  • Chester says:

    That’s some great advertising. Make a jab about queers and not only will it run them off, but improve your business, both monetarily and ethically. Very Nice!

  • Lucinda says:

    TJ: Neener neener is not a persuasive response.

  • David says:

    Well, there is one thing for sure. Next time in Anchorage, F Street Bar will be where I go to have dinner!

  • HigherPowers says:

    Way to go F Street for stating the hypocrisy of this delusional world!!! Love your place and I’ll eat there even more now!!
