Bigots roundup on Etsy

So the other day I made the horrid error of wandering around the Etsy forums.  I found this posting.  Apparently Rebekah of LeCharmedBoutique wanted a way to nicely someone she was going to discriminate against them.  It is after all very important not to work with gay people because the bible or some such shit.  Please note though she is perfectly OK with skirting the truth to avoid a law suit.  I don't she realized the reason there is no good way to say I am going to refuse you service in my store for no reason but stupid bigotry is because there is not one.  It makes you a douche.  Unless you are following all the rules of the bible and I mean all of them shut the fuck up.  Considering that she was concerned with not getting herself sued and how to work around it I think for starters thou shall not lie is out the window.  So this shop goes on the places I will never shop list. 
Stephanie Maurin from ElleGraceCreations  was so classy she compared someone liking people of the same gender with pornography because I can only assume she thinks all gay people are porn stars or something. 
See and here is where it really gets gross Mikayla Crosby of MikaylaCrosby explains asking her to paint a image of two people together that happen to be gay is the same as asking someone to paint child pornography.  I would explain to here why she is a fucking idiot as some other people did but when she writes it out herself so well why bother.  I will say in reference to her comment saying you love someone after comparing their love to the abuse of children is a giant crock of shit and you would have to be a total moron not to see that. 
Then there was Cathy of SleepingFoxStitchery she was the highlight of this horrid bog of dick bags.  Her comment was sweet and kind and very much how I felt.  It related just how horrifying it is to think of all the hatred wrapped up in "love" being spewed by these people.  I want to hug my friends to.
The good news is there were many people saying hey this is really disgusting or upset like this woman was.  The bad news there were many saying they understood but would be hush hush about it.
This was really the most depressing thing of all.  It is bad enough to think what the hell  what a total idiot discriminating when you see a thread post on Etsy of a individual shop but the response from Etsy was terrible.  Admin went into the thread and removed various post they considered harsh but left the thread up and to my knowledge the store that is clearly discriminating against gay people. 
Robert gave a cold and horrifying response.  He explains this is a potentially sensitive topic.  Well fuck yes it is and it is about human rights and basic equality Robert.  This is not a I don't like things that are blue post this is a I want to refuse service to people based on their sexual orientation post. 
You are right Robert I did learn something apparently Etsy is going to support shops that promote discrimination. 
Then oddly enough he puts up please don;t make post that speak detrimentally about sexual orientation.  Well shit what exactly does one have to say to be detrimental seriously I would like a fucking list.   
So what I got from this is hate is alive and well and Etsy is going to turn a blind eye.  The thread is called ( How to turn away a customer ) if anyone wants to read it for themselves on the forums. 
Myself I am boycotting the hate filled stores I posted till such time as they start actually providing all customers with respect and service. 
Thanks for reading this rather long post but I felt it was important to call these people out on their shit.


  1. Thank you Cappy Sue for standing up to these blatantly discriminatory shop owners and pointing out how etsy failed to manage it in a professional manner. I am stunned that someone would post asking such a question. How do I legally discriminate? Can you help me to do so? It's horrifying.

  2. Thank you! A round up is exactly right. I'm glad they outed themselves so I can NEVER buy a damn thing from them.
