Oh good, you just argued in favor of legal protections on the basis of gender identity.

Was it a leather bar? What happens when that fellow or some str8 guy goes to a lesbian bar?

Actually, I doubt lesbian bars exist anymore for this very reason.

This is so ridiculous! Is there no end to this liberal BS? A bar/restaurant has the right to have whatever dress code they want and refuse customers who do not meet that dress code. Some nice restaurants require men to wear dinner jackets and ties. So if I show up in jeans and a tee shirt and they refuse me is that discrimination?
You don't understand what a "fact pattern" is. The dress code of this bar was analyzed point by point and it was found to have one express purpose: To bar effeminate men.

An analogy to your poorly thought out hypothetical would be if that same nice restaurant barred women wearing dinner jackets or tuxes from entering.

But you're too dense to figure out why that's analogous.

Analogy is like lucky buckeye one removes from his pocket to rub and examine most intently as he struggles to find the right compairison to that he knows nothing about.

Christard, you didn't say anything. No discernible point of view. In other words, Jumper.

The "alternate version" of a nice restaurant barring women who showed up in any sort of traditionally masculine attire is the better "comparison" to the case at this gay bar - because both involve gender discrimination.

The "example" of not meeting some equally applied dress code has nothing to do with the gay bar's policies.

But tee baggrz don't understand fact patterns. That would require an ability to weigh how things are similar and how things are different. Can no do.

I have never been called a 'jumper' durring my living Earthly exsistance as I liked to take shorter strides in order to delay the Grim Reaper.(A race worth runng)

As for the proper attire worn by some,I hold no discernible opinion.( lacking the fashion bug myself.)

Nothing here was about proper attire. It was about gender discrimination. The moron (you) who brought up proper attire was just doing his best.

I would be happy to see all factions of the gay community welcome in its businesses (all businesses, actually). But I totally agree with the ban on heavy perfumes; at best it's just disgusting but at worst, it's an allergy nightmare. You CAN go out without smelling like you bathe in cologne.

No, Dear, it proves that a few business owners are bigots, and unaware of the laws in their state.

Michelle wasn't wearing heavy perfume. She just regularly did drag when we went out for a nite at one of the bars. It IS hypocritical for LGBT people demand equality in all respects and the right to not be discriminated against, and then turn around and discriminate against another LGBT person.
By people's hypocrisy never surprised me.
You state this was circa 1981. Could it be that at the time there was a law against cross-dressing? I don't remember when the one in St. Louis was voided, but many places had them at one time. If there was such a law or ordinance, that could have been the reason. Not all discrimination is brought about by individual businesses. Sometimes it has to do with discriminatory laws, which the businesses have to follow or lose their license.

No, there was no law against it. We became good friends with Tommy Leahy, the owner of THUNDERS at the time, and that's just how he was at that time.

You replied to that thing.

WTF did you think would result from your error in judgement?

It's almost as though you haven't gone through this a hundred times before. I suggest upping your intake of Ginko Bilbao [sic].

Then don't post a complaint when you get a bucket of sht from the racist pedo in response to your unwise replying to him. It's your own fault.

comrade peter's hypocrisy no longer surprises me. I told him about being grouped in a gay bar and he told me if I didn't like it that sexual harassment was allowed to go on in gay bars that I should stay out of them. Yet if comrade peter doesn't like how a straight business is run he wants to go to the ACLU and have the owners fined and put in prison: "that'll teach em!"

Gay people have always discriminated:

Discrimination is normal, it is a human thing, everyone one does it, and governments only make things worse when they try and stop people from running their own businesses.
