This person is a media whore.


Looks more like a Canadian hero to me. Defending our way of life. Good for her.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

I was saying Lu-Urns...

“That guys an idiot. It’s his own fault if he can’t tell the difference between an all star center and a plug defenceman”

"It's not the location. We just can't beat the Canucks. Thank god they're in the West."

there are thousands of men only barbershops owned and operated by non-muslims, operating within our culture for decades.


Have they banned or refused service to women? Show me where because I have never seen that. If anything women may avoid 'shave' shops but I have never seen nor heard of them from being banned. Or any 'men only' signs.

Who said it was a "men's only Barbershop"?

Who said Barbershops are only for men?

Traditional?

It was "traditional" for Blacks to be at different schools and the back of the bus 60 years ago.

Where does it say 'men only' 'clearly'. Or 'no women' I don't see it. Which page do you refer to?

Since you're so keen on insulting others from behind a key board how about posting a picture of yourself?

Then we can see your 'better' haircut.

Where?? I've read each portion of this site several times and be damned if I see anywhere that this shop is "clearly identified as men only" :rolleyes:

It's one thing to grasp at straws to support one's argument but to outright lie about something to make some point? .And then point directly to the link that refutes what you're sayin? :lol:

They "specialize" in men's hair, it does NOT say "the only cut men's hair".

"Welcome to the Terminal Barber Shop, the oldest standing barber shop in Toronto! Since 1925, the "Boys Club on Bay Street" has been a downtown fixture at Bay/Dundas, offering haircuts, massages and hot lather shaves in a classic barber shop setting. Recent visitors to the shop include former Canadian prime minister the Right Honourable Paul Martin and American celebrity Woody Harrelson (pictured below)."

Services:

•Haircuts $22.00
•Shaves $27.00
•Scalp, neck, shoulders massage $5.00
•Hair wash $5.00
•Neck shave $5.00
•Beard trim, shaping $ 10.00


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.

Did you mean our way of life that included this barbershop operating as-is issue-free since 1925?

She has succeeded in her mission however. As a troll, she's riled up those who are easily riled up.

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.


Many attitudes I am seeing are showing why Female only gyms are necessary.

Do you know what I wish? I wish people would be sensible and not make big bloody deals out of simple matters. Now, if this person is rushing to an interview and it's the only place in town, maybe (no, actually - that's her problem for being stupid and leaving things to the last minute).

Everyone is quick to follow up with claims, suits, actions that, really, are for nothing. This diverts valuable time and resources away from more serious matters.

Get over it already, it's a haircut for crying out loud. I don't care if it's appropriate or not (to follow up), I think it's ridiculous.

Sorry but you're just making things up to fit your own specific argument. The name 'boys club' does not automatically come with the banning of women. Nor does it prove your point that women aren't allowed into that shop. You're just filling in the blank with what you want and not necessarily what it means.

Even if it was clearly stated there, who has the time to check a web site before going to the barbershop.
Maybe they should have a sign on the window that clearly states "Men Only".
Or "Sorry, non of our barbers are have the skill to cut woman's hair".
