Status as a victim of domestic violence, assault, or stalking

Correct. The situation in this thread occurred in Illinois. Sexual orientation IS a protected class in Illinois.

You're joking, right? Stop drinking the koolaid and LOOK AROUND at what is happening.

Things have never been better for anyone who is LGBT. They are even being considered for MORE rights than the rest of the country.

LGBT is even being taught in elementary schools to young children. What it is, why they are so fabulous, and how to engage in same sex, as well as how to become TG.
Parades are thrown in their honor.
Gays and lesbians are the new spokes models for ad campaigns.
Child drag queens are the new marketing darlings.
TGs are reading to children in libraries and public schools.
Almost every movie/tv show has a gay character, which is far beyond what they represent in the US population.

You can't be serious. Ask any LGBT who was around 10, 20, 30 years ago.

If you are serious? Stop reading the propaganda, turn off the computer and go out into REALITY.

If this story was real, my guess would be the person who showed them the door probably was some kind of closet gay himself. lol

Seriously? Some men can be very insecure about their own sexuality. I have several male friends who feel flattered if a gay man hit on them. Some of these friends are special force Marines. if you are secure about your own sexuality, you don't need to overreact, period.

All the blah blah being said, sure, if you want to lose businesses, go ahead kick them out. <shrug> Remember, the way you treat others in public says a lot about YOURSELF. sheesh. Buy some class.

People who start in about "Trumps America" are lying about hate crimes against the LBGT community and helping cover up the worst offenders. They don't care though. They don't really care about LGBT, they care only about R\D and would round up every gay person they could if that meant victory for their political party.

For a loong loooong time in this country about half the hate crimes against gay men in this country are from black men...Trump must have been emboldening them since before he ever started running for office.

They even had an article on CNN about Trans men getting murdered. They tried to push "by whom" mostly under the rug but yet again it wasn't a white guy in a pickup with a gun rack.
