Religion or creed
Sex
Age
Disability, pregnancy, or genetic information
Veteran status

Some states, like California, have more protected classes than the federal baseline. In addition to the above factors, California adds:
Marital status
Sexual orientation or gender identity
Medical condition, or AIDS/HIV status
Military or veteran status
Political affiliations or activities
Status as a victim of domestic violence, assault, or stalking
State, county and city law recognize sexual orientation as a protected class in terms of employment and housing.

Makes no sense to me for any business to discriminate on the basis of orientation.

This alleged incident was attributed to a worker, a cashier, not the owner.

None of us were there and don’t know what happened.

The establishment has chosen to not comment.

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.
The annual Gay Pride Parade in Chicago is one of the largest in the world. It has been an event for nearly 50 years.

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.
This selective high school has about 4500 students. The area has many branded and unbranded fast food restaurants. It is also a highly trafficked area.

The remarks are being attributed to a cashier, not the owner.

I agree that some males who trend publicly homophobic have unreconciled issues of their own.

As it relates to this situation, none of us were there. The owner has declined to comment.

That you NEVER believe any of these claims says more about you than anything else.

How about LE officers who claim to have been denied service by a fast food worker, just because?

Don't even need a news update to know it. Chicago is one of the most gay friendly cities in the country, and no business owner in that city would go out of their way to alienate a giant chunk of market share.

That is the common sense reason. The other reason is that all these "they claim" hate crimes are always hoaxes.
The incident was attributed to a worker, not the owner.

The owner and employees have declined to deny or confirm the incident.

The students claim they initially perceived the remarks were about PDA, not orientation, until they were walking out the door.

Who knows?

I can't believe that the worker didn't speak his mind when the camera lady came and asked him. He instead took flight and said he was a "customer" and not a worker. But this man was sure to rob these youth of their dignity then chase them with more insults as they left.

This place is more of a transient construction worker stop than the type of place that would attract residents of Boys Town. It also has proximity to the selective school with a student population of around 4500.

Yeah, it's practically across the street from the school.

The point being that given the numbers of gays in the vicinity, one could reasonably expect that it's not a rare occurrence.

100% agree that we don't know what happened other than the kids version of events.
