My 23andMe says I get to claim whatever is most advantageous for the point I'm making^^

Still do not fully understand why the GOP doesn't peel off more Asian support. A saw a survey that showed trump doing better with black men than asians.

They mainly live in highly Dem/liberal areas so I think it's environmental.

I'm still trying to figure out how my life is any worse because some shop owner can't refuse refuse to somebody because they're black or gay. Certainly my life is better because it's harder for my wife to be discriminated against in the workplace.

AKA within the margin of error rounds down to zero.

Why should discrimination be selectively enforced against people who own businesses?

Buying and selling aren't the same thing. We widely regulate sales, and simply as a practical matter it would basically be impossible to regulate consumption. How could you claim to know a consumer's motivation for a purchase, or not making a purchase? It's not hard to process a "No Irish Need Apply" sign.



The only one on your list that's interesting is sex-based establishments. I'm not entirely sure how that holds up legally. There's more than a little hypocrisy there too, since male-only establishments like Augusta country club are apparently totally unacceptable but things like your female only gyms don't get a second glance.

That's some mansplaining!

Context is important and men have nothing to gain from going to a female only gym whereas women are cut out of all the moving and shacking that happens at male-only, Illuminati type places. This is good hypocrisy.

Here's my hot take, based largely on anecdotal evidence (e.g., my parents who identify as Republicans but think Republican politicians seem like dolts, voted for Gore, &tc.). You probably assume Asians should align with the GOP because you loosely associate Asians with a don't-ask-for-help-capitalist ethos (or something like that). But I think you might be overemphasizing how that much kind of attitude defines the GOP--as opposed to all manner of moral posturing as well as just straight up crazy bullshit. For example: I'm not sure that the pro-life position is as strong in Asian (or, at least in my experience, Korean-American) Christian circles, even evangelical ones, as it is in white Christian circles. Or: even if Asians (again, in my case, Korean-Americans) do own guns, I think the American culture of insane gun fetishization seems bizarre and stupid as a political position. Also, I'm pretty sure Asians are pretty good at sniffing out when a party invites or directly promotes anti-immigrant rhetoric. And, last but not least, I think you overestimate how much Asians are all about bootstrap meritocracy. Asians rely on public services quite a bit; I hear my parents lament all the time how Korea has developed things like national health care while the American system is a shitty mess for them.

In fairness, California and other states have ruled ladies' night is illegal discrimination.

"I know Anthony Weiner. I don't want him knowing anything."

Just checked, I had no idea the Wiener documentary was out.

No.  Government discrimination is illegitimate.  Individual "discrimination" is an exercise of choice and free will, just as are boycotts like the Woolworth's boycott.

What idiot staffer thought it was a good idea to get into that kind of direct sparring match with Trump on Twitter? Let the 9713967012 Clinton proxies handle it.

Those states are stupid.  I'm not surprised that California is among their number.
