Bigots roundup on Etsy
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.
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.
