So, some person could claim to be gay so as to trick someone into treating them the same as everyone else...  wait, what?

"And the one thing I referenced when I say 'self-professed,' how do you know who to discriminate against?" he said. "They about have to tell you. And are they then setting up a case, is this about bringing a grievance or is it actually about a service that they'd like to have?"

'Seriously,' he continued, 'Do you know how tough it is for a bigot out here these days? Used to be you could just look. That that is not a white fella, boys, we got us some discrimination to do right here. Listen, that fella's talking' Spanish, there you go. But these gays, now, who the hell knows whether you got one of them on your hands? I mean ho-lee shiat there's some gotdamn homosexuals in the N-F-L these days. Or so they say. So what am I s'posed to do, ask 'em? The WHOLE POINT is not to have to deal with 'em and now I got to have a gotdamn conversation just to FIND OUT if I should be not servicin' them or, I don't even know. This here shiat is confusing. Why cain't everyone be straight like before. We all like a little sex with men now and again but nobody had to run around "I'm gay! I'm gay!" about it, trying to trick folks into discriminating against the wrong folks. It just ain't right.'

So... yeah.


He also thinks that because humans box dogfighting is OK.

All I got out of the article is that Rep King is interested in turning gay tricks... or something like that.
 
2014-03-03 06:36:21 PM  
King has a point. How could a business know you're gay if you don't tell them? I mean, sure, the requested two grooms at the top of the cake might mean your gay, but if you don't say anything, they won't know! When you order flowers for your wedding, it may be standard practice to include both parties' names for the order, but you could just use initials, and they'd never know. We just need to institute a Don't Ask; Don't Tell policy for gay weddings. It worked so well in the military!

"When we get into the area of even hate crimes legislation, I've opposed that, because you're punishing people for what you think went on in their head at the time they perpetuated a crime," he later added.

I think he just invalidated all Stand Your Ground laws.
 
2014-03-03 06:44:48 PM  
I know that the author of TFA is clueless, Subby, but surely you know that anti-discrimination laws get their authority from the interstate commerce clause, and not the equal protection clause, don't you?

Satanic_Hamster: Couldn't businesses get around the cunning plans of the gays by....  Not discriminating against them?


Oh, please, like they could do that!  All successful business owners are good Christians. You can tell because if their business is successful, it's because Jesus - the good, anti-gay Jesus - wanted it that way.

In all seriousness, though, the various bills that have come up recently make me wonder if we need this much fuss to defend the supposed religious rights of a few bigoted assholes?  I'm sure the vast majority of business owners don't give a crap about what their customers do in the bedroom. This is not a huge problem.  Well, okay - it's not a real problem at all. But even the jerkoffs having a "problem" have got to be far and few between.

When King talks, he's not talking to you or me or anyone who's sane. No. These comments are meant for the ears of the inbred Teahadists that keep voting for him. He knows he's running a HUGE scam on America by being a politician with all the perks that such a position brings. As long as there are stupid people in the country, King will have this job for as long as he damn well likes.

I've tried to get my brain around the reasoning for this latest round of legislative twaddle. I will admit to not reading the bills, but do the authors actually think this won't backfire in ways they haven't thought all the way through?

Am I supposed to be able to claim discrimination because a Jewish bakery closes for a week during Passover? Are they supposed to be able to throw me out because I am not Jewish?

How far does this go before they realize, "oopsie?"

You cannot be a "private business" if you do business with the public.

You can refuse service, but only within certain parameters. Speculations about who diddles their winky isn't a qualifier.

King said LGBT individuals are trying to "perfect special rights for self-professed behavior." He added that their rights aren't covered under equal protection because sexual orientation can be "willfully changed" and cannot be "independently verified."

Even ignoring the stupidity of the whole "homosexuality is a choice," I'm curious why he thinks religion qualifies for protection against discrimination and homosexuality does not.

I think the real question is: "Why do you need to discriminate against anyone?"

I wonder if that's part of a business's start-up plan. "Okay, we're going be fixing cars, so we'll need a garage with tools and maybe one of those car lifting things. We'll prob'ly need an office to write bills and get money and stuff and maybe a place for customers to sit while we change their oil. Anything else? Yes, Roger? Oh right, I forgot . . . who should we plan on discriminating against. We're in Iowa so we'll need to chose carefully."

Unless you want to extend the right to freedom of association to every American. In that case, you're a bigot if you DO want to extend rights to everybody.

Doublethink, how does it work?

Why would gays not get the exact same protections under the law that straight people enjoy?

I don't know. Why wouldn't they? Everybody had the same rights (the right to freedom of association) before the Anti-Civil Rights Act of 1964, yet everybody was whining about equal rights.


There are bills out there that explicitly say that one can refuse service because if it offends their religion. This enables someone to refuse service to anyone who is gay. There are also bills out there that disallow lawsuits because someone discriminated against them.

I ask you again, why would straight folks get protection under the law that gay folks would not?

WTF did I just read?  This man is insane.

Speaking as a white man, we all know that white privilege does exist in some ways, to one extent or another, so why doesn't EVERYONE choose to be white?  And they say it's a man's world, so I'm sure glad I chose to be a male.  Why did all those women, especially in ones where women are suppressed and subservient, choose to be women?  That sure was a dumb choice on their part!

Snark aside, my wife is bi-sexual, and has previously been in serious, comitted relationships with other women.  She has told me that there's been many times in her life when she wished she was straight, because why would anyone choose to be the target of bigotry?  We live in Kansas, so that probably says a lot right there.  One of the last relationships she was in before me was with another woman, and she said they'd be walking down the sidewalk merely holding hands, and complete strangers would come up to them to call them names or to tell them they're going to hell.  I'm glad times are changing, but people like Steve King are not disappearing fast enough for my tastes.

Every thinking person knows this train of thought is complete and utter bullshiat.  A gay person does not choose to be gay.  That's hard work.  They are being who they are and they are worthy of respect or derision because of who they are as people, not who they love.

This guy does have something of a point - there are gay people who go out of their way to find things to be outraged about, and who enjoy stirring up trouble to satisfy their narcissism.  There are people of all groups, orientations and associations who act that way, and they are all terrible people.  That isn't enough reason to pass laws allowing for discrimination, though.

One theme in this discussion page is that only stupid people vote for republicans, but I think the reality is that only stupid people don't realize there's almost no difference between the Republican and Democratic parties anymore.  Elections consist of conservative asshole A vs marginally more conservative asshole B.  That isn't much of a choice.

zzrhardy: So, some person could claim to be gay so as to trick someone into treating them the same as everyone else...  wait, what?


Yes, exactly. See, they don't deserve so-called equal protection because they really are the same as everyone else and are already treated equally, except when someone treats them differently because they choose to be different. If people who are already equals get special laws, that means they have something the rest of us do not; therefore, the only way to preserve equality is to preserve our right to discriminate freely. It makes perfect sense.

The gays could trick employees into committing hate crimes instead of ordinary crimes. Employees can randomly shoot patrons and face attempted manslaughter or murder charges. But gay patrons who are shot will dramatically claim it was a hate crime. Banning them from businesses is the only practical solution. Plus, God. Not sure exactly how He fit in there, but He adds some gravitas to an argument.

Don't f*ck pastries, man. Just don't.

Funny story, from another Farker* who is no longer with us. Back in the day, he worked at a local supermarket, and worked with a special person named Dookie. Dookie would disappear every day, about the same time, and the crew could never figure out where he went. So, one day, they decided to follow him when he went on his daily sojourn. In a back storeroom they found him, in an act unclean, with a bavarian filled, and slowly crooning the name "Jennifer" who happened to be a rather attractive cashier. Once the manager spoke, and the unpleasantness of him getting his pants up, the manager asked Dookie how long he'd been engaged in this peculiar habit, and he answered, "Since I got here." And when asked what he did with the pastries afterward, "I put them back..."

Don't get the pastries from the Westfield Stop 'N Shop. Just. Don't.

I want to start a small business with a sign in the window that says "I refuse service to Christians!!"

rattchett: Every thinking person knows this train of thought is complete and utter bullshiat. A gay person does not choose to be gay. That's hard work. They are being who they are and they are worthy of respect or derision because of who they are as people, not who they love.


I am perhaps one of the few people who chose to be gay at some point. Or tried to, anyway, because in the end I couldn't fight my straightness, so it didn't work.

/voting for morans like King, however, is a choice

hubiestubert: demaL-demaL-yeH: hubiestubert: What in the chocolate covered f*ck

Do you use a choux, filo, or puff pastry for yours?
I've experimented with choux, but it's too eggy.
Filo is just too brittle.
Puff pastry turns into a battered, soggy mess.

Any suggestions?

Don't f*ck pastries, man. Just don't.

Funny story, from another Farker* who is no longer with us. Back in the day, he worked at a local supermarket, and worked with a special person named Dookie. Dookie would disappear every day, about the same time, and the crew could never figure out where he went. So, one day, they decided to follow him when he went on his daily sojourn. In a back storeroom they found him, in an act unclean, with a bavarian filled, and slowly crooning the name "Jennifer" who happened to be a rather attractive cashier. Once the manager spoke, and the unpleasantness of him getting his pants up, the manager asked Dookie how long he'd been engaged in this peculiar habit, and he answered, "Since I got here." And when asked what he did with the pastries afterward, "I put them back..."

Don't get the pastries from the Westfield Stop 'N Shop. Just. Don't.

*Dookie Does Donuts, if you ever get to hear the full poem and song associated with this tale, stay and listen to the whole dang thing. Tim--if you ever get back on to Fark, we miss you, man.


Took a while to catch my breath.
1. A chocolate covered fark has to be a pastry. Figured it might be a nickname for one of your specialties.
2. Cooking guys have warped senses of humor. I think it has something to do with the heat, humidity, booze, and noise.
3. That wasn't just a gag in American Pie? I'm floored. Rule 34 in real life is just sick. And funny.
4. That Jenny sure gets around.
5. I bake pastries - used to own a bakery and don't like other people's baking. Now I have another reason to keep on keepin' on.

Hickory-smoked: 06Wahoo: So, let's turn this back around.  A gay activist denied service to someone who disagrees with their lifestyle

What does that mean, exactly? "Disagreeing with their lifestyle?"


I can't hear that particular euphemism without thinking about Arthur Dent... "I seem to be having tremendous difficulty with my lifestyle." Let's just hope all such uses don't spark similar Vl'hurg vs. G'Gugvuntt wars and ultimate revenge seeking...

/Keep some hungry dogs around just in case...

Tim told us that story about 1990 or so--my third year of college--and he wrote the poem/song while he was in high school, so, yeah, nearly a decade before American Pie. Yeah: no pastries from the Westfield Stop 'N Shop. Ever.
