Men’s Barber Shop Fined $750 for Not Cutting Women’s Hair

Our rulers’ authoritarian obsession with stamping out “inequality” and “discrimination” is not making it easy to do business in Pennsylvania:

Ask any client at Barbiere in Washington County and he’ll tell you the upscale gentleman’s barbershop offers more than just your typical haircut.

From the rugged décor to the macho atmosphere, it’s a place where guys can unwind with a complimentary cocktail or enjoy a cold beer.

“[I] come here, talk sports, guy talk. A great place to get away after a hard day’s work, get a haircut and have a beer,” said client Robert Craig.

Sounds a bit too masculine to be permitted in the Land of Hope & Change. Sure enough:

Now, the business is at the center of a heated debate after owner John Interval was fined $750 for refusing to cut a woman’s hair.

She filed an action with the state’s Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs.

That agency imposed the fine for gender discrimination after a state investigator visited the business…

Once this was a free country in which business owners decided for themselves who their clients would be. But then came “civil rights.”

Despite the hardships of trying to run a business under the heel of liberal bureaucrats, Interval dreams of opening another:

“You know, I’m not opposed to doing women’s hair,” he explained. “Just not in this shop. I don’t even have [the equipment] to do women’s hair. I want to open a shop to cater to them and no men will be allowed there. They’ll have all the champagne and mimosas they want, and that’ll be on the house.”

He won’t have to worry about men belligerently demanding service in his women’s barber shop. According to liberal ideology, men as men are not “oppressed,” and therefore are not entitled to “rights.”

Life under moonbat rule is like living in a lunatic asylum that incarcerates normal people and forces them to be insane.

Next they will attack barber’s poles for having jingoistic colors.
