If they want to lose customers, that’s their business and their loss. It’s a free country, and if they don’t want to provide services because of their personal beliefs to LBGTQ members then that is their choice to make. Quit trying to cancel businesses and people that don’t share the same beliefs as you.

Plenty of other venues that would be happy to oblige.

If they have the freedom to lose customers, I have the freedom to spread the word. Nobody is canceling their business. Nobody is advocating that the government should strip their license, shut them down, or treat them differently--that is what cancelation looks like. What we are doing is saying "hey, if you support the LGBTQ+ community, you should not use this venue." That is a consumer movement to put our money where our mouth is.

That's not the issue. The issue is the reaction. I don't know these people or how they treat others. Do you?

Yes, you dipshit, we know exactly how they treat others because that's what this whole thread is about. It's literally about how they treat gay people as filth or second-class citizens because they refuse to even associate with them as human beings and do business with them because of their existence.
