RUFF ROAD AHEAD

FL Politician Compares Gays Looking For Job Protections To Dog Owners

Boca Raton councilman Mike Woika thinks LGBT rights are for the dogs.

Addressing why the Florida city doesn’t follow Palm Beach County’s anti-discrimination policies, Woika said, “What’s to keep other groups from wanting to be protected? How about me? I’m a pet lover. I think should be included in your anti-discrimination law. Someone who has dogs should not be discriminated against either.”

At least he didn’t bring up bestiality—at least not directly, anyway.

South Florida Gay News reports that Boca Raton’s decision to “opt out” of gender-identity and sexual-orientation protections could cost it $250,000 in contracts from Palm Beach County, which demands anyone it does business with follow the policies.
