PHOTO: Nondiscrimination is *such* a legal headache

by Jeremy Hooper

This poor stock photo model has a splitting headache:

But in the hands of the National Organization For Marriage, she becomes a poor "martyr" who just wants the freedom to turn down any kind of customer who she finds morally unfit for business:

The poor dear.

In the first photo, our photogenic baker could of course take some Advil or Excedrin, or perhaps go on some migraine medicine. But as for the latter? Well, if she wants to wantonly flout her state's nondiscrimination laws—whether those laws apply to race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, or any other category—then she might have a harder (and more costly) time alleviating the fallout. Because members of her community are not a pain for which she can just take a pill—they are her fellow citizens who are entitled to the protections of fair society!

But pretty good job with the attempt to create a victim, NOM. Can't wait to see the mockup in which you use a husband's frustration with impotence as stand-in for the flaccid state that same-sex marriage has supposedly imparted on all heterosexual couples.
