Gay hair stylist drops New Mexico governor as client because she opposes same-sex marriage
nydailynews.com ^ | 03/03/2014 | RHEANA MURRAY

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez needs a new hairdresser — or a new stance on gay marriage.

Martinez was recently dropped by her hair stylist, Antonio Darden, who is gay.

Darden told a local news station that he cut the governor’s hair three times, but won’t do it again as long as she continues to oppose gay marriage.

“The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in,” he told KOB-TV. “Because of her stances and her views on this, I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I’d changed my mind about taking the governor in and I said no.”

Martinez has said she believes marriage should be between a man and woman.

Darden, a popular stylist in Santa Fe and the owner of Antonio’s Hair Studio, has been with his partner for 15 years.

“It’s just equality, dignity for everyone,” he said. “Everybody should be allowed the right to be together.”

Gay marriage is not recognized in New Mexico.

Good point, but then again, do you want somebody who hates you to cut your hair?

Since barbers are licensed by the state, however, one of the governor’s aids might make a discreet offer to the hairdresser that “if you like being a hairdresser, you might get to remain a hairdresser”, to paraphrase Obama.

Queers are allowed to deny service, but Christians are not? This only makes sense in the bizarro world of leftism. In the real world, freedom of religion, freedom of association, and human decency would mean that everyone would have this right. Freedom should not be limited to just those with political connections.

Anyone wanna guess how many offers to cut the Governor’s hair from right-thinking New Mexicans have come in since this story broke?

Put it this way, when it comes to hair stylists, Martinez is probably set for life.

Here’s what I wish the Governor would do. Go public with this (more so), then say, but I have a choice, since this hairdresser won’t serve me, I will go to one who will. Just make it all big and noticeable. Just to make the point if you don’t like what a business is doing, you have every right to go somewhere else.

“My bet is the msm silence will be deafening.”

I'll take that bet. The MSM will probably trumpet this to the low information citizens for at least a week. To the MSM this is a legitimate payback to awful conservatives like Gov Martinez. As you stated, “Freedom of association for me but not for thee.”

Sue him. Time to fight fire with fire.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
You sue him just to get in his pocket....

But I am sure there may be a couple of laws on the books that would justify shutting the business down.

Remember the ‘We Reserve the Right’ sign only means anything as long as you are NOT weeweeing off the ‘government, local or otherwise’.

Discrimination is discrimination.

If you decide not to serve me because I don’t have a shirt on you can refuse to serve me because I am either ‘breaking your rule’ or your patrons find it offensive.

Unless it is a legal “LAW” you are discriminating against people with no shirts on.

Using the same logic, if two people with the same equipment are making out in your establishment and you throw them out or - in todays world - ask them to stop, you are opening yourself up to law suits and your customers don’t count - if they don’t like it they can leave

Definitely agree with the other posters that mentioned if ‘they’ don’t want you in their shop/store/bar - whatever - you are really using good sense not being there.

Even back in the 50’s when other kinds of discrimination were going on I sort of ‘reasoned’ that money is green and money is what keeps the business open so why turn away money?

Brings to mind the old one about the Jewish Department Store owner that was on a family vacation in Florida in March.
His kid says “Dad, how can we be here and a lot of our friends are still in school?”.
“Christmas son, Christmas”.
“Dad - We are Jewish, we don’t believe in Christmas.”
“That is right son, WE don’t but all my Christian customers do and if not for them, we would not be here.”

Find another hairdresser, pay HER twice as much as she was paying Antonio, and be very public about who is doing her hair, inviting everyone to come to her new hairdresser.

Nothing says screw you to Antonio like lots of money going elsewhere.

He has the right, I support his right.

Look at it this way, what would be your reaction if Nancy Pelosi and Hillary came into your business?

Poor Susana, she probably can find no one else willing to cut her hair in NM. She may have to drive over to AZ to get it done right.

A gay hair stylist? Who would have thought!

Mrs WBill's has had the same male hairstylist for years. He designed and made her wedding veil & tiara, and helped with all of the flower arranging for the wedding.

I met him at the wedding. Pleasant fellow, but not the most macho guy I've met.

He then turned and introduced me to his wife. Absolutely *stunning* blonde, older lady. One of those awful (sarc) people who roll out of bed in the morning looking like a perfect 10. Turns out that they've been married for (now) 40-odd years and have five kids.

Go figure. :-)

Why was she patronizing this pervert in the first place? She thinks she’s part of the solution, when she’s actually part of the problem.

(The same is true of many women, I’m sad to say. I suspect the reason they accept and applaud sodomites is because they don’t like being under the authority of men.)

Disney Decides to Discriminate Against Boy Scouts

Posted 1 hour ago by Paul Breen Filed under 1st Amendment, Business

It seems that only some people can discriminate. The multi-billion-dollar “Walt Disney Company has notified the Boy Scouts of America that it will withdraw all funding from the organization beginning 2015 unless the BSA overturns its policy of not allowing openly gay members to be leaders.”

Some will say that this is different from not providing service to people or groups that promote behaviors and viewpoints that are offensive since Disney’s giving is voluntary. But isn’t purchasing photography, cakes, and printing also voluntary? No one is forcing people to choose one company over others.

If Disney is free to do what it wants with its money based on its beliefs, then why should other business owners be forced to support beliefs they disagree with?

“It’s just equality, dignity for everyone,” he said. “Everybody should be allowed the right to be together.”

So, he supports a dude marrying his horse because they should be together? Perhaps siblings? Also, how is the governor preventing you from being with your "partner"?
