ofc there are similarities but would you honestly not rather out these horrible people than have them just shove subtle racism down these customers throats? at least then everyone knows and you can choose not to support them.

Do you remember the Chik Fil A incident? Where their business boomed following homophobic statements? Your faith in these businesses failing is too optimistic. That's also not to mention that homophobic attitudes are more rampant in places where that kind of attitude is considered acceptable, so they have lots of allies to keep their business afloat. Giving people the opportunity to strip other citizens of rights and privileges because of things that are out of their control is never acceptable. I think they should lose their business license if they refuse service in that manner.

Bro we had a chicken place here that funded anti-gay organizations

Rural White people went out of their way to eat there to show their support!

Edit: oh **** Frownland beat me there

you don't think things would have went a little differently had they refused to serve them? it's one thing to have these opinions but entirely different to act on them.

think of how many other chik fil a's there are out there as well.

at the end of the day it would only be small business' that would ever do this, and only if they had incredibly poor business sense.

I don't have faith in that assumption. If you're homophobic, you probably live in a place where that idea isn't challenged that often.

You faith in the market is inspiring. "Eh, they're just gonna fail anyways! Let em break the 14th amendment it's cool."

Not the point at all

I missed the part in history where discrimination against blacks stopped because it was unprofitable

lol I'm pretty sure I can choose the point in my own argument but thanks for your concern mate.

we'll have to agree to disagree frown, it's not an issue I'm all that passionate about but clearly we have different views on the matter.
