Skip to comments.[Homosexual] Hair Stylist Refuses to Cut Anti-Gay Governor's Hair (Susana Martinez, R-NM)
Posted on 02/22/2012 2:12:32 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
It's been a long-running joke (though seldom enforced) among LGBT folks, particularly gay men who work in the creative-service spaces: If you discriminate against the gay community, we will refuse to cater/plan/decorate your weddings, design and make your dresses, or make you look pretty for your next big event.
Now, it seems, one gay hair stylist hasn't just made that joke, he's lived up to his word.
Antonio Darden (left) styled Governor Susana Martinez of New Mexico (right) on three separate occasions. Martinez is a Republican who got Sarah Palin's endorsement in 2010, and though she may believe that the United States Constitution needs an amendment banning gay marriage, she still adores having second-class citizens cut and style her hair. So when the Governor's staff called to schedule a fourth visit to Antonios Hair Studio in Santa Fe, Darden declined.
The governor's aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in," Darden told KOB News. "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 again."
Darden, who has been with his partner for 15 years, also said, "I think it's just equality, dignity for everyone. I think everybody should be allowed the right to be together.
Watch Dardens interview with Albuquerque local news station KOB below.

Who’s breeding all these abnormal gay people? I know it isn’t me.
Stupid business decision. Plenty of straight hair stylists out there and things like this can cause unexpected backlash which could put the guy out of business.
But it is a civil rights violation for a photographer to refuse to take Bruce and Barney’s “wedding” photos. 2+2=4
Precious doesn’t realize that the prestige of styling a female governor’s hair gets a reputation. His actions only have currency in West Hollywood, CA, and Greenwich Village, NY. Maybe also at the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Plant in Where-ever-it-is, VT.
Baby boomers and their progeny..
It’s his right not to.
But if it was a Christian hairstylist and a homosexual politician wanted a haircut, there would be all sorts of hissy fits thrown.
“Darden, who has been with his partner for 15 years, also said, ‘I think it’s just equality, dignity for everyone. I think everybody should be allowed the right to be together.’”
Does anybody else see the BIG fallacy in this snippet?
Why do they want government in their bedrooms and relationships anyway?????
Probably help him in Santa Fe.
>>>But it is a civil rights violation for a photographer to refuse to take Bruce and Barneys wedding photos. 2+2=4<<<
And a crime for me to tell him take his f-gg-t face out the door and off my premises. How exactly does that work?
Not me (born 1960) FRiend. My 18 year old son is probably too heterosexual, if you take my meaning.
Is that like refusing to rent to Sodomites, refuse them service at restaurants etc etc which is illegal in most states businesses?
No bias there...
Such a fascist bigot. This is a hate crime against a Christian. To demand to rewrite the Bible—and make a filthy lifestyle choice a “right” is insane when all rights in the US come from God-—and sodomy is NOT a right—it shows you how mentally ill these people are.
Who wants to know what he does in his bedroom—puke—inhumane....get government OUT of the bedroom and legislating evil instead of Virtue—which is the basis of Just Law.
He has no “right” to spread disease and demean human beings and mock God in the public square.
Good grief...pink shirt, earrings, precious spiky hair, the whole package. As my late father (who had his hair cut only in barbershops) would have said, “How sweet it is.”
The stylist is, of course, perfectly at liberty to choose his clients. Likewise, the governor is free to select another stylist to take care of her hair. It’s the very essence of freedom of association.
Or she could just buy a Flowbee. I’m sure EBay has some.
There's no dignity in being a sodomite.
You’re Jackie Gleason’s daughter? LOL
LOL....well, he did like Gleason! I guess he stole the line to use when sightings of “Antonio Dardens” occurred.
So only homosexuals can provide those services?
Yeah, I was thinking that, too. Sad, the place has gone so far downhill since I lived in the area...
Ellen DeGeneres supposedly makes $45 million per year. Gay activists need to give it a rest.
Our salon staff is all female (except for me) and all hetero. They do a great job. My wife hired a gay guy once but he didn’t last. Drama mama. He now works at (wait for it) GM with his mom!
Transparent bull sh*t.
It's not genetic. It's spiritual.
Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another; men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves that penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting; (Romans 1:27,28)
These wicked people reach a point with God where he stops striving with them and simply gives them over. He's done with them. Are all sodomites reprobate (rejected)? I'm afraid that most of them are. Although 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 makes it clear that some can be saved. Maybe it's those who experimented with it, or found it expedient in that culture (prostitutes). It's not a place anyone should be, because the pattern abasement is clear.
But here is a sobering thought: "He that believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." (John 3:36) It may be too late for the reprobate, but not for many. "For He says: 'In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.' Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." (2 Corinthians 2:2)
“Pathetic” is the only word that can be used to describe any person whose entire existence is based upon what they like to do with their sex organs.
It says he's been with his partner for 15 years. Apparently they've been "allowed" the right to be together. Dignity? Sorry, if you don't have it, a little piece of paper isn't going to give it to you.
Why are all the nut cases in the country making it into the news. Its depressing and boring....like we all care about it. Wasted space...
Hair dressers are a dime a dozen. Gay activist hair dressers who pose for limo-liberal media pictures are a million dollars a dozen.
Let them find out that they are a minority and the majority is not gooving on their butts.
I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near this faggot, much less have my hair cut by it, anyway.
Maddox said he had a right to refuse service to people because of their looks and beliefs.
But it was Federal law that said no - you have to serve all, you can't exclude on the basis of race, color or creed.
Mr. Darden is a civil rights violator and he just did it to a Spanish Catholic.
He should be under indictment by his own rules.
