Homophobia at the poker table! Obviously it happens (along with sexism and racism), how do you guys respond? Personally I usually tell the person making the comments that I find their language unacceptable, and pretty much every time they have apologized and stopped.
If they are making general comments not in my direction, sexist or racist ones included, especially if at the dealer, I tell them that is unacceptable. If they are berating the dealer (this seems to happen most often), and don't shut up, I call the floor over, and that usually shuts the person up or the floor removes them.
I have had women dealers all over Vegas wind up recognizing me years later because I do this.
If they are making comments in my direction, well, they get it back far worse, which usually results in them tilting off and/or leaving lol.
