Discrimination or Anti-Discrimination

This sort of thing always makes me question what discrimination is. Can you discriminate against a heterosexual organization for discriminating against homos? Can you exclude homosexuals from private endeavours? Apparently (see Boy Scouts).


Tom Potter won’t congratulate the winner of Ms. Portland or something like that. Clicky clicky.

    Tempest, meet teapot. This would be a waaaay bigger deal if someone who wanted to compete wasn’t allowed in because she was married to a woman. Then holler all you want. I understand why he’s doing it, but come on Tom, pick your battles.

    No, I think it’s good to start small so that you have a history of doing any given thing. Sets a precedent, nahmean?

    Kudos to Tom Potter. Small choices like this help establish a precedent.
