Affordable housing targets gay seniors
Monterey Herald ^ | 01/20/2014 | KATHY MATHESON

PHILADELPHIA — Jerry Zeft was so excited to move into his new apartment that he slept on an air mattress for nearly a week while he waited for his bed and other belongings to catch up with him. No matter that he's 70 years old.

Zeft had landed a coveted spot in a new affordable housing complex for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender seniors in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. Only two other U.S. cities have similar developments.

"I wanted to get into a community that I'm more comfortable in," Zeft said shortly after picking up the keys to his unit.

One would like to hear a Progressive state the true meaning and intention of “affordable housing”.

IMHO

Separate, but equal?

I thought they were just like everyone else? Why is separate housing needed? Who are the bigots here?

I don’t get this?

So do they want to be included into society or not? Sounds like the latter.

The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of:

Race or color
National origin
Religion
Sex
Familial status (families with children)
Disability

So the LGBT crowd wants their own housing projects? I thought housing projects were oppressive.

Can you imagine them accommodating a request for white only affordable housing?

Exactly. "Fair" as in "fair housing" has a special meaning:

As a protected class, I can get whatever I want. More of this, less of that. You don't matter. You are a pig-dog. You get what you get, while I get exactly what I want -- it's only fair, right?

My goodness, if these “elderly” homosexuals want to segregate themselves from others.....by all means let them do so. If they are bunched together, then the rest of us don’t have to deal with them.

I do find it very funny how they say they are marginalized by younger homosexuals.

Well, there’s a significant demographic bloc. Gay seniors. Wouldn’t lone survivors be a more apt description?

Oh, the names for these housing communities trigger my imagination: Sodomy Arms Housing Complex, Sodomy Village, Sodom and Gomorrah Estates. The list of clever names is endless. Feel free to add your own. LOL

Although anti-discrimination laws prohibit gay-only housing, buildings can be made LGBT-friendly through marketing and location.

LGBT-friendly marketing:

Isn’t “say housing” per se discrimination against normal people?

Why am I not surprised that gays, like blacks and feminists, want to have their cake and eat it as well?

One day, there won’t be a federal government around to make people support such thinking. I wonder what they’ll do when they’re faced with actual equality.

What I want to know, is what proof does one need to qualify. Do they have Dan Savage making the call? Is there a quiz involving minutiae about show tunes? Affadavits from sex partners? This development is custom made for fraud and abuse.

Anyone could apply to live there because in no way is this condition objectively verifiable.
