Britain Passes New Anti-Discrimination Rules

UK gay vacation

In anticipation of his inevitable outing, Toothy Tile should choose England for his next romantic homosexual getaway. Not only is it on a different continent away from the American press corps, but as of Monday it is illegal for restaurants to prevent gays from holding hands with each other during dinner!

The rules will make discrimination on the ground of sexual orientation illegal in the same way as race or gender. They are drawn up to protect gays from being denied “goods, facilities and services” on the ground of sexual preference.

We still urge Toothy and others to exercise caution, however, because there are no stipulations that homophobic hotel owners cannot infest your room with bedbugs and prejudiced waiters cannot spit in your food.
