MONTREAL -- A Montreal gay bar that caters to male clients has settled a discrimination complaint with a woman who was thrown out of the premises.
Bar Le Stud and Audrey Vachon, the 21-year-old woman who launched the complaint, agreed to keep the terms of the settlement confidential.
Quebec's human rights commission says businesses have the right to attract a particular clientele but not to discriminate by excluding other customers.
Vachon sat down at the bar with her father for an afternoon beer a year ago when staff told them women were not allowed.
Le Stud owner Michel Gadoury said at the time women had been banned most nights since the bar opened 11 years ago.
Interesting they can exclude everybody from their little bar who are not "gay males." Apparently even women who are gay are not even allowed in.
Hmmmm.... so does this mean straight men can have their clubs again where no women are allowed in, and they can exclude males who are gay too? I mean, it would only be fair..... women already have exercise clubs and such that don't allow men to come in or they will certainly give you dirty looks (Went to pick up an ex at one.... holy hell, talk about a pile of bitches... like I actually did anything except walk in and walk out.)
So which is it going to be?
Every group and gender can have their own isolated clubs away from all the other undesireables or shall we keep it all pollitically correct that it makes us bleed from the ears and make sure no clubs or bars, etc. can discriminate based on gender or sexual preference?
It's also interesting that during all this equality crap that's been going on over the last couple of decades, everybody who is not a straight white male have all their little clubs and organizations specific to their special little needs, while straight white males are pretty well still classified as neo-nazi scum bag trailer trash arseholes who will try and oppress the planet again if we're given equal rights to any other gender or race/sexual preference.
Replace the above mentioned gay bar with a sports bar of some kind and replace the woman with some gay guy...... now put into play a similar situation where the gay guy is thrown out because he's a gay guy and gay guys are not allowed in...... tell me how this looks.
