Blatant prejudice against lesbians
April 9, 2013
On Sunday I went out for a snack in the East End with my family.
Outside sitting at one of the benches was a young couple facing one another cuddling and playing with each other’s hair.
They were about 18 years of age and yes they were being publicly affectionate, but not over the top.
The owner came out of her shop and told them that they were bad for business and chastised them.
I emphatically believe that had they been a young woman and a young man the owner would not have given them a second glance.
But because they were a lesbian couple, she felt she had the right to judge openly and discriminatorily.
The owner of the establishment can get away with discriminating, because there is no law protecting our citizens based on their sexual orientation.
Personally I believe that judgement lays in God’s hands when it comes to issues of morality.
Needless to say I will not be going back to this establishment and not because of the young couple, but because the owner is prejudiced.
