Nanny of the Month: Minnesota bans Ladies Nights
Hot Air and Reason TV ^ | July 1, 2010 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 07/01/2010 12:07:51 PM PDT by C19fan

Oh, what a night, but the feelin’ ain’t right … at least not in Minnesota. Reason TV picks its Nanny of the Month, and this time the culprit is in my back yard. James Kirkpatrick, the Commissioner of Human Rights in Minnesota, declared that Ladies Nights promotions discriminate against men and are therefore illegal in the state. So much for sophisticated mamas at the nightclubs:

Did a man actually complain?

Not one straight man ever complained - and who cares if one did?!

As an unintended consequence this will decrease revenues for bars all across the state (and consequently liquor and sales tax revenues).

This is what you get from Bitchaucrats who justify themselves using Kafkaesque logic. It discriminates against men, how, now prove it?

Someone doesn’t like a discount or a two-fer, so what’s wrong with this picture. I could guess these same Bitchaucrats also believe large club card stores discriminate against none member citizens.

Gretchen aside, the few times Ive been in Minnesota it seemed like most of the women look like a cross between Rosie O’Donnell and Elana Kagan.

They’re WAY behind the curve. Here in Massachusetts, Ladies Nights were outlawed years ago — I think during the Dukakis administration IIRC.

Staring at my screen, shaking my head in disbelief. We need to disband the Congressional Black Caucus then. Discrimination is wrong, isn’t it?

Actually, there was a state case in NJ or Maryland, some years back, about the non-member prices of Gas at Sam's Club, or Costco, vs the member's price being discriminatory.

In Texas, you can go to the “card” stores and get the same prescription prices without the card.

In the sane days of old, discriminating used to be praised, as in: discriminating taste.

How long before “seniors” discounts are declared discriminatory?

Yup- This will result in a direct lawsuit against Sam’s Club....

In California many years ago, there was a lawsuit over the cost of cleaning WOMEN’S blouses vs MEN’s shirts. Women paid as much as 3 times what men paid because of the pressing.

The cleaners said that it took much longer to press a woman’s blouse because of the details that were different on each one, & time was money.

Lawsuit went forward.
Judge said costs had to be the same.

Soooo- the cleaners RAISED all the prices UP to the prices of the women’s tops.....& now the men get to pay the higher price all over the state.

Sometimes I think a sea turtle could do a better job in Sacramento legislature.

Meanwhile—having ladies nights in bars all over the country is a traditional thing.

Lots of the guys know they can go meet some new women on the half-price booze.

As long & cold as the Minnesota winters are, this could really backfire.

One of the clerk’s at a Jack In The Box I used to go to always called it:
The Wisdom Discount”. He got lots of tips.

James Kirkpatrick is too stupid the understand that Ladies Night is for the benefit of men. He's so intent on finding even the slightest injustice that he ends up creating them where they don't exist. How does Mr. Kirkpatrick feel about white men being discriminated against by affirmative action? Bet it was used to give him his job.

Are you serious? Where the hell did you go? You must have gotten a bad sample. The women are one of main reasons I keep coming back here every time I try to move away...

Of course, the winters are the other reason, so clearly I don’t think like a normal person.
