No, claiming that people are allowed to discriminate against various groups of people if they want to makes you an ***.
You trying to tell people what to think seems far worse to me than telling people they have the freedom to think as they please.
When you decide to act on negative thoughts towards other people, that's when a line is crossed.
Unless you violate someone's rights, no line is crossed. I don't think it violates anyone's rights if you do not feel comfortable allowing someone into your home or business for whatever reason, and I fully support a business' right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.
As in, if I met you, I may think I want to punch you in the face. But I probably wouldn't act on it.
Turning down business from someone is a far cry from punching them in the face. If someone doesn't want your business, take it elsewhere and consider it their loss. It's that simple.
Don't threaten to sue because you don't like their reason for rejecting your business. That's being foolish and should never be allowed except in the ridiculously litigious society America has become.
Re: ladies night - if it's beside the point, fine. I get the argument.
If you get the argument about laides night, then you should understand that it IS discrimination against men. Yet you never hear the news going on and on about it, you don't hear of lawsuits surrounding it, etc. WHY?
Because people are willing to tolerate SOME forms of discrimination, but others are such hot-button issues that they would not only generate lawsuits but national attention almost immediately.
If you're black (or really, anything but white) you can get attention and generate a media circus by claiming that whatever happens to you is something to do with your race. If you're gay, you can do the same thing by claiming it is about your sexual preference.
If you're a white, straight man, no one cares if you are the victim of discrimination. You've got to be part of some minority group with an agenda to get attention and sympathy.
