Some powerful shit

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

The only comparison between guns and cakes is that a customer can generally go to another store. Iinm, gun store owners are not legally required to sell guns to any individual. It's not really different from a bartender. The legal question may come down to whether an age requirement is discrimination. If so, then why shouldn't 17 year-olds be allowed? And even if it's a law, it can be deemed discriminatory.

Discrimination is necessary. The issue is what it's based on. Age-discrimination is not the same as sex, sexual orientation, racial, or ethnic discrimination. Everybody has an age, though. So, imo, it's the fairest form of discrimination.

Oh, not to mention the many laws against gun possession in US history. So, I can't be outraged at this.

Um, or the exact opposite, which is what is being discussed and has actually taken place both with guns and cakes...

Yup, that's what I said.

Personally, if I were gay, I would find a cake store that wanted to serve me. I wouldn't trust food from homophobes. I'd either buy the business, boycott, or bake my own. They'd be fabulous.:)

Hey, no argument there. I'd do the same.

I think the case will tougher to prove than it may seem since 18 to 21 year olds don't have a history of being a persecuted group. Ageism cases are difficult.
