Re: GTA is Full of Them - Another "My Rights Are More Impor

said by MaynardKrebs:

So, hypothetically, what if his business was the ONLY one in a town which provided that good/service. Who's rights are being infringed then?

Why not refer to real situations rather than made up scenarios? You referred to fairy tales earlier yet here you are making them up.

Toronto has a huge LGBT community so a woman that wants to look like a man and have her hair cut in a barber shop owned by Muslim men is not an unexpected scenario; however a woman that wants to look like a man in a small town in rural Alberta with only one barber shop owned by a Muslim barber who wants her hair cut like a man? Uh huh....

Maybe the prices charged by this barbershop was all she could afford. Or maybe he also refused because he perceived she *might* be a lesbian? Maybe the only way to find out *is* in court.

I agree; however we're referring to a Human Rights Tribunal here, not the court of law, so we have people making legal decisions based on the perception of emotional offense.
