"Alpha race"? Are you saying that gay people are inferior?


Are you thinking gay people are their own species?

You believe you can force people to do business?

Right on, dude!


Now that we've managed to suppress and legally discriminate against them dang LGBTs, next we can do something about the blacks, Mexicans, Asians, Muslims, Jews and well... any body that isn't straight, white and Christian or anybody that thinks or looks differently than we do.


Hyperbole much? Suppression and discrimination? If you want to see real examples of those go check out the Middle East and get back to me later. In the meantime, this is first-world problems.

Something else liberals normally endorse, but not in this case. How weird.

To answer your question, no I do not. But that doesn't change what is happening now - companies are extorting state governments and the media is playing it up. For some reason there are some companies that are being intimidated by a minority of a minority, while the rest of the country actually doesn't care and would like to hear more about jobs, economy and border security.

I could have sworn you're on the record here saying that you believe it is a fundamental right to choose not to do business with someone. In fact you touted that as a cornerstone of the free market.

Has your opinion changed?

Unless you get the crap kicked out of you in a bathroom in NC by some rednecks calling you a tranny. Trans women look pretty rediculous in a mensroom. It's not a dude in drag.

I could care less about calling people names. I am a libertarian by the way. Not a liberal.

I could have sworn I said the states should call their bluff and not bend knee to the extortion. Never once did I say the companies should cannot do what they are going to do.

I would like to know how many LGBT customers they have vs straight customers who don't really care?

Actually they have managers, employees, and executives who care.


Oh and SC is right down the Rd. Haley knows this she isn't going to waste tax payer money and call an emergency session when she could be talking about jobs.

Penises in locker rooms?

People haven't used public showers for about 30 years in the US. If your staring at people's junk it really doesn't matter which one it is. You need to learn to control yourself.

Just because *you* haven't used one, don't make assumptions for others.

Pretty sure a trans executive, manager, or employee has an opinion.

I am not. I have three kids, was a kid, and coach judo and wrestling. I have coached in two states. None of the kids use the showers.
