I have seen immigrants for all corners of the world not cry for help, and just buckle down and do their thing with blinders on. And i have also seen complainers at work. I have no problem, but I know how to identify each.

So, children are like complainers at work. Got it.


And yeah, um, "national origin" is one of those protected classes. Thankfully.

So, people requesting their rights under the law re lead are "complainers"? Just, uh, wow. That's pretty far out there. You must think women fighting back against sexual harassment are "complainers" too.


Never heard of anyone demanding a landlord dog friendly an apartment. That's a good one too.

Pets aren't a protected class. The deleading is the law, whether you like it or not.

Dude.. you really are stretching.
What I'm saying is. that in this market if you demand a room be de-leaded the landlord has 5 other people in line that don't need that.

"You must think women fighting back against sexual harassment are "complainers" too. "

^ And thats not a stretch at all.

A woman's self ownership of her body is not at all comparable to your ownership of your own house. Totally logically consistent to be against rape and for renting to whoever you want.

People never cease to amaze me with their metaphors.

It doesn't surprise me, the tactics that people as this use to try to make someone inferior are quite embarrassing.
you don't want to rent to a woman with a little helpless child? You must love rape and hate blacks!
Rock on dude. Keep fighting the good fight!

No, no stretch, you apparently have a problem with people exercising their legal rights, and call them complainers. It seems consistent.

No one mentioned rape. And you can rent to who you want, as long as you don't violate the law doing so. You can not rent to people because they have kids, or because they are black, or because of their gender, or national origin, etc. These are protected classes.


If you're a landlord, you're running a business, and you can't break the law while conducting your business. Simple. This should not be controversial.

Thats an adult thing to say when people are talking about de-leading apartments right?
