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.
