Doctor9 saidThis should be good....how do you prove someone is gay? *If* you refuse service to someone who *isn't* but that you think is, can they sue *you* for defamation, discrimination, and anything else they can think of?
Is your *belief* that they are gay enough? If you have already signed a legally binding contract, can you break it?
I see all kinds of problems here....above and beyond the fact it's *wrong*
Interesting points. Here in the US these cases have so far clearly involved LGBT persons. Things like being denied cakes and flowers for gay & lesbian weddings.
But what if an effeminate guy walks into a restaurant. Some effeminate guys are in fact straight. And he gets denied service for being gay, which he's not. Or can he be denied service merely on the basis of his being effeminate, which the management dislikes?
If that's the case, then I presume we can return to denying service to Blacks, too, as was done in the US South until passage of the Civil Rights Act (which Congressional Republicans continue to try having repealed).
