Yup. Beautiful.

I really am starting to detest you fricks. I really am. You make it REALLY hard to back your causes.

basically adds sexual orientation as another prohibited reason to fire someone


What about using sexual orientation as a reason to hire or not hire someone?

I haven't read the bill so I can't really comment on that.

certain companies may, and they'll fail (both in terms of the market and due to limiting their pool of employees)



This isn't as public as denying service to certain individuals. It will go unnoticed if smaller businesses tend to avoid hiring certain classes of people. In short, they will not be harmed at all, but the man or woman just trying to get a job or advance in life will.

How do you even begin to determine what "gay" is.

Gay people come in all shapes, sizes and colors...and even then gay isn't a cut and dry line (bi-sexual people can claim the "gay" part when it suits them best).

As bad as the gender and race laws are now, at least they are defined.

I said that because SFP doesn't believe in any protected classes.

I get what you're trying to say here, but we live in a totally different time than say 50 years ago. If a business made it a point to not hire someone because of their race/gender, they would be ridiculed harshly via social media, Internet, TV, etc... And it wouldn't take long for it to happen either. Thus, it certainly wouldn't be in their best business interests to do so. Just imagine if MSNBC, Reddit or Facebook would get a hold of a story like that. The effects would be almost immediate.

I just don't see the risk/benefit being worth it.

it doesn't have to be public, known

what does that have to do with anything?

only if EVERY business denies them employment, which is absurd. even if this absurdity may become reality, they can move

Because as a straight, educated, white male, his life has been pretty fricking cushy relative to some others.

So many people in here are justifying why we have any discrimination protections at all. I guess some white males just can't understand.

As intellectually dishonest as this post may be, It should be permissible under private property rights.

But anyway, anybody that would do this would absolutely be crushed under pressure from the free market and another business would happily take that labor and customers the bigoted business would refuse and the aforementioned business would have no recourse against that as opposed to the gov't forcing morality on them.

That logic is ignorant. One single company denying to hire a gay person isn't right. It doesnt matter if every thing business does it. Having one do it is wrong.

And my point with it being public is to refute your statement that companies will suffer. No, they wont.

Well it's tough being a white male in society. Being so few, their rights are trampled.

Nothing is stopping them from seeking and getting other employment at places that would accept them. Nothing.
