I don't believe that's correct. Unless my understanding of discrimination law is in error (which is possible), unless something is specifically identified as a criteria that can't be discriminated against, someone can legally discriminate against it.
Yes. You're right. I should explain it more clearly.
I will not be denied ice cream at a Baskin Robbins because of my race. This is because I am protected by either a) the fact that Baskin Robbins has a policy against such discrimination or b) the law prohibits such discrimination.
I will not be denied ice cream at a Baskin Robbins because of the size of my feet. This is because virtually no one on earth would think to sell ice cream to people based on foot size.
My race and foot size, when it comes to buying ice cream at Baskin Robins, are equally protected though one is protected by company policy and/or law and the other is protected by the fact that nobody in the history of the world has ever said "We don't take kindly to your big foot types in this ice cream store."
Basically, we all agree that denying me ice cream because of my foot size is retarded. We also all agree that denying me ice cream because of my race (or sex, or religious affiliation, or sexuality) is equally retarded.
If you have an ideological problem with anti-discrimination laws, I get that. If you have a practical problem with anti-discrimination laws, you're a retard, and frick you.
