  4. Virginia and Florida are the only states in the South that have a majority in favor of equality for and against discrimination against LGBT people.

    But the legislators in Virginia are mostly Republican and allied with the Christian Right.

  5. The spa stated in writing: “It is our policy to not accept any kinds of abnormal sexual oriented customers to our facility such as homosexuals, or transgender(s).”

    What needs to happen is for as many LGBT people gather at the spa and just stand in the doorway with their swimming kit. When invited to enter, just repeat the spa’s policy and stay put.

    This is appalling. I can’t imagine how humiliating this was for her. Proof again, if proof were needed, of the pernicious influence of religion in society.

    Revolting, and to use their children as an excuse for their bigotry really shows them up for the nasty pieces of work they are.

  10. Listen up gay community, it tiring telling you the same assine people who are racist and bigots , you must sue these companies and businesses for your emotional traumas and and harassments, and abuses of your families in public places and private, these people stigmatize, many, sue them, and then go and get up off of your asses as gay business, entreprenuers, and gay politicians , and familiy people , and open up your own gay spa in the united states, you should not want hetersexual perverts and womniizers around your gay families and partners, their fucking dangers, get a clue they are a nusance, , ,

  11. the fact that they see a transgender or gay person minding their own business as “sexual” says a lot! I see their point about not allowing “sexual” stuff but just because its a straight couple they shouldn’t be allowed to have sex there but because its not considered “abnormal” to them it is allowed??? The whole policy needs to change.

  12. Burn it down. These freaks do not deserve to have a business.

  13. “It is our policy to not accept any kinds of abnormal sexual oriented customers to our facility such as homosexuals, or transgender(s).”

    It’s preposterous that they seem to think being transgender is a sexual orentation. I’m not sure what I find more offensive, this, or the fact that thay’re insult is couched in such bad grammar.
