Why on earth shouldn't hotel owners be free to turn away gay couples?

Let’s get one thing straight: if and when the time comes when I become sufficiently desperate to open my home as a bed & breakfast gay couples will be more than welcome. So welcome, in fact, that I’ll advertise specially in the Gay Times and at Gaydarnation.com, as well as buying in the collected recordings of Judy Garland, plus decorating the walls with lots of prints by Robert Mapplethorpe and Tom of Finland, just to make sure they feel right at home.

  1. It’s called discrimination – nitwit. Denying people services because of your preconceived bias and stupidity.

    Homosexuality is very common in the animal world – but then your knowledge of science is about zero anyway so you wouldn’t know.

    Most talking heads are like this – they appeal to the lowest common denominators in society – revelling in ignorance – just like Queen Sarah.

  2. Actually I agree with Delingpole here. There should be discrimination. Likes of Delingpole and Palin should be denied access to the media and politics respectively. Delingpole doesn’t even understand the difference between anthropogenic and anthropomorphic, just as Palin doesn’t know the difference between North and South Korea.

    You only know the difference between North (bankrupt, backward and everyone impoverished by socialism) and South (wealthy, everyone on the up, technologically advanced fro capitalism) Korea because your dream of a socialist republic of bankrupt after-Brown Britain is failing (again!)

    No matter how many times the loonatic left fails you just don’t get the message do you retard?

    I can’t speak for animals but i discriminate when choosing a mate. I go for females, tall, blonde, curvy, busty with character.

    That discriminates against all gay men, ugly lesbians (i’m prepared to try ‘converting’ attractive lesbians for no fee) and all females at least not an ‘8’ on my Totty Score Chart. Is that ok with you or am i pinging some HR Laws here?

    As for the B&B contrary to that Marxist turd David Milliband on BBC Question Time, the B&B is not a “public business” it is a private business and they can choose whatever customers they want.

    I was trying to get a flat in Rome for 2 months recently. 50% of the landlords/ladies turned me down flat for being a ‘foreigner’. It wasn’t my black American chum who spoke fluent Italian that was the problem, but me a British white male.

    And you know what? It’s their bloody right because it’s their bloody property. If they want to turn away custom then stuff them, they lose biz because of their beliefs. But I’d never force my arse into their private property if they didn’t want it.

    That’s life which you just don ‘t understand with your droll belief about ‘equality’. Nothing is equal and never will be. You have to earn a living and earn your status. You’re not handed it by a bunch of ignorant socialist scum that want to bully people with their dumb-arsed beliefs.

    That’s not democracy, it’s tyranny as practised by all socialist left long enough in power.

  5. Well Said Chris P,
    Its time we all stood up to the tyranny of the team players. Remember this: If you don’t like heterosexual BnB’s then stay at a gay one, There are plenty of them. You don’t get heterosexuals queuing to stay at gay BnB’s. There needs to be separation from differences or it spoils everyone’s lives. I see this as the gay community forcing its sexuality on those with are different orientation to them and that’s NAZISM.

  6. I do feel sorry for the Bulls in a way. There’s been a massive change in the way society regards all sorts of things and it’s unreasonable to expect everyone to change at the same rate.

    However I am also surprised that they did not their court case. The Bulls always maintained that they turned they guys away because the were not married. It had nothing to do with them being gay.

    I would have thought their lawyer would has simply submitted the BnB guest book as evidence. This would have proved that the Bulls has checked the marital status of all of their guests and were satisifed that they were all married (perhaps asking to see a copy of a marriage certificate or photographs from their wedding day). Case closed.

    I also agree with James. If I am providing a service then I should decide who gets to use that service. For example, if I ran a bus company, I should be well within my rights to tell homosexuals to sit at the back of the bus. If there were too many hetrosexuals on the bus, I should be able to tell the homosexuals to stand up at the back so a hetrosexual could sit down.

    My house. My rules.

  7. Try harder, David. Your witty response was pretty much anticipated in the article when mention was made of “bien-pensant control freaks” who imagine that the moment their guiding hand is removed from everyday human interaction we will all erupt in all-out war over trivial differences.

    How long do you think your putative bus company would last?

  8. Let me think. How long could that bus model last….
    The last time someone operated a bus model liek that it only came to an end after a massive civil right movement demanded that people should be treated equally. There were marches, riots, deaths, assassinations, lynchings and coarse language.
    So my answer would be “as long as it ran on time, it would last ages”.

  9. Rob: “I see this as the gay community forcing its sexuality on those with are different orientation to them and that’s NAZISM.”

    You’re right, Rob, it’s just like the Nazis. Not allowing people to discriminate on the grounds of sexuality, gender or race is a slippery slope to putting gays and Jews in concentration camps and murdering them. The only way to prevent this Nazi-ism taking hold is by making it easier for B&B owners like the Bulls by forcing gays to wear some kind of symbol to alert us all that they’re gay. How’s about a pink triangle? It may sound harsh, but it’s the only way to hold back the increasing Nazi-fication of our culture. It’s already started – what is a wind farm but some kind of concentration camp in disguise?
