I just do not know where to post this. I would say relationship and discrimination, but an Australian court has ruled it not to be discrimination, so I am now at a loss and it ends up in the etc forum. Gay Aussie hotel wins right to ban heterosexuals, lesbians So, any comments in favour of the banning of straights from your club? I know that we are talking disruptive and mean spirited men, but that is not a matter of banning everybody who is straight so much as it a matter for the doormen to toss anybody who steps out of line from the club and management to ban them for life. That would have cleaned up his bar in a hurry, but instead the owner went through the courts and got an order effectively banning all women (lesbians included) and straight men- and the human rights groups APPLAUD it. My father years ago was upset at the gay pride parade in town. He said “we couldn't have a straight pride parade.” I asked him why not. If you want to step up and organize it I would bet you could; but you would have to leave the parade open to gays to participate in just as they have left it open for straights to participate in their day. In this case, I can't think of what I could say to defend a ruling like this. I have made the poll anonymous (if I did it correctly) so that you can vote the truth of what you feel. I would appreciate any comments though. The quotes that I found most interesting belonged to the owner of the nightclub who said "With the heterosexual males, if they identify themselves as that at the door, or indeed we question their behavior in the venue and if they come across as being heterosexual, then we will simply ask them to leave if the behavior is inappropriate." Also, "When large numbers of heterosexuals or even lesbians are in the hotel that changes the atmosphere and many gay men can feel uncomfortable." I worked in the nightclubs for quite awhile and can tell you that when even two openly gay men are on the dance floor it can make straight men feel uncomfortable. That is not a reason to ban them.
