When Discrimination Is Okay

So we have seen racial quotas for hiring and getting into school. That is "good." Yes, it is discrimination but it is discriminating in the politically correct direction.

Now we have housing discrimination, but not for minorities. We have discrimination for the old LGBT community. A housing project is being built for only lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender senior citizens.

That's about it. That's the whole story.

Naaawwww. I'm going to make fun of some quotes:
We want this project to be something that Philadelphians can take pride in.
Mark Segal
project spokesperson
Yes. Take pride in discrimination. Take pride in telling 98% of the people they can not live in these new homes.
And in our own community for the most part, LGBT seniors are literally invisible. This project has put them on the map and made them think about the issues that face gay seniors.
Mark Segal
project spokesperson
Believe it or not, most people do not want to be noticed. Now you are making a community in which intolerant people can drive by and taunt. You have designed a target.

Most people don't care. Many people don't like mainstream sexuality being part of the public dialog, much less something practiced by 2% of the people that makes us go ewwww! Could we talk about furries instead? Because that is sort of funny.
