<<When I was stationed in Germany I got a call from the Boy Scouts who ran their little club on a US Military base. They wanted me to come fix their computers. I flatly refused. After all, I am paid with tax-payer dollars, and if the military starts to support them, it means the military is supporting prejudice, homophobia, misogynism……Well, OK, openly supporting homophobia and misogynism.

Well, actually you would be supporting REAL multiculturalism and diversity, not the ersatz stuff.

And as I look through lists of charities, I see a huge number devoted to aiding women with their numerous problems or gays with their numerous problems. You don't have a problem with that kind of discrimination?

The fact is that so-called anti discrimination laws have gone WAY too far in destroying the liberty of Americans to freedom of association. But you'll notice that blacks are free, even encouraged to form exclusive associations, as are women and other such groups. If such laws were applied with rigor to these groups you and they would soon see why freedom of association is a vitally important liberty.

Indeed, women complained about men who formed professional associations and excluded women, and succeeded in getting "anti discrimination" laws applied to professional associations. But they kept their own women only professional associations, giving women the ability to organize politically and socially around issues of importance to them, while preventing men from doing the same.
