Deceptive NOM continues to seize deceptive martyr role

Forced? Um, no. No, no, no, no, no!

By the owner's own admission, he is walking away from $50,000 in added revenue. He made the choice. He charted his own course. He could've continued serving all of the public, but because he didn't want to serve some of the public, he will now serve none of the public.

That is not force—it is a choice. And if it's a choice, my zygote chose balls then the only force at play comes from the cruel, hard-to-shake weight that the desire to discriminate has wrought on the American psyche.
