Woman Denied Haircut, Files Human Right Complaint

Recommended Posts

Your analysis does not explain a whole laundry list of gender biased organizations or minority only special groups.

And further to this, the fact that this woman is so bent out of shape about this guys arcane religion is what the real humor is.

Who does she have representing this earth shattering lawsuit? ACLU ? Are they doing the pro bono ?

Really? Then why can't my son say the Lord's prayer in the public school?

Sorry, this "barbershop" is open to the public.

I said before - all he needs to do is hire a female barber and/or have a sign clearly stating that it is a Men's only barbershop.

Why do I say that? The barber I used to go to in Calgary (before I recently moved back to BC) is a Muslim and that's what he did.

Don't businesses have the right to refuse service?

If he just said, "No, I don't want to cut your hair. Find another place."

Would this have been an issue?

I went into McDonalds and asked for a Prime Rib yesterday. They turned me down! What the hell!

The Keg was across the street so I just went there instead, but still, what an outrage.

They make all sorts of beef products in there I don't see why I couldn't just get the Prime Rib.

Class action suit anyone?

The bottom line is that every business on the planet specializes in specific things. If a business chooses to serve one sort of clientele over another, that should be their prerogative. There is no unhealthy discrimination against women in this case. He gave a religious reason for not cutting the woman's hair, but there are also several other reasons he could have denied her service.

Either way you look at it this is bogus to the power of eleven.

So a women goes into a Barber shop full of Muslim men to get a hair cut...... What type of haircut was she expecting to get? If she wins she should just get a free haircut from the guy. Then he should just shave it off.

You're probably right. I would most likely be demonized for my efforts.

BUT if I were to switch to the Ladies Gym...the benefits to me would be...

1. Can walk instead of driving. Save $ on gas and less pollution to the environment.

2. Frees up the car so my wife can use it if need be.

3. I'm walking which helps cuz I need to get more exercise (as per doctor's orders).

I see no reason why I should be denied joining the Ladies gym.

Sorry...I don't believe a female would go to a barbershop for a haircut. She went there to prove a point.

This lawsuit should be thrown out just like that man wanting join a female only gym.

It might have been a more difficult case to prove without an explicit admission but it would still be a violation. Many cases are filed based on circumstantial evidence.

Unless the barbershop says 'unisex' on the front sign, then it is a male barbershop. This is the precident that has been set for decades.

Did we want to reset precedence that 'women's only' fitness clubs now have to allow men? Nope.

This case is absurd and is a prime example of human rights abuse/misuse. I feel for the people with legitimate human rights issues who are not getting this kind of attention.

The "Nick Berg" cut. :bigblush:

If you've seen the obesity in men nowadays I'm sure they could benefit highly from those pregnancy programs too. Also understand that much fatness likely has them at testosterone levels near a pregnant woman as well.

I just want to use a treadmill or any other cardio exercise equipment that's close to home. I don't need a shower/bathroom.

Is there any reason for me being denied entry to the Ladies Gym?

If this women is successful in winning her lawsuit and gets $$ out of it. I'll be wanting to join a Ladies only gym that is only a 5 minute walk away from my place instead of a Steve Nash Fitness Club (that I currently go to) that is a 5 minute drive from my place.

Prices are about the same but the Ladies Gym is close and in walking distance.

Fair is fair.

I think the real issue here should be that the courts are actually going to take this case.

What a waste of time and money.
