Thinly veiled anger below.
Can we in any way make those opposed to non-discrimination laws understand that "behavior" has nothing to do with the question? They say employers/landlords should have a right to fire/evict homosexuals because of their sexual behavior. By that logic then, they should have no legal right to fire/evict homosexual virgins or celibates. But they DO. So we have proof positive that their discrimination is in NO way based upon behavior but solely upon their dislike of gay individuals. Wouldn't that also give me, if I were to rent property, the right to evict a heterosexual tenant for disapproving of his intrinsic heterosexuality? How come I never hear this point mentioned? Because it's too obvious? Or do people really not see the truth of it?
Nothing infuriates me faster than people arguing against non-discrimination laws, especially when they say they base their discimination on behavior. Don't know if I've mentioned this before, when I was a kid I was thrown out of home and left homeless for weeks by such a landlord. I literally believed I was going to die from that experience. Since I was a virgin at the time, the "behavior" that got me thrown out was being quiet, paying rent on time and in full, and minding my own business. Shouldn't ALL such responsible tenants be thrown onto the streets then? By his logic, apparently they should. . . . Don't people notice how psychotic it is to argue against an innocent person's basic survival needs?
