Don’t ask me if I’m gay

Well, well, well. Finally the US has something to be proud of. A court has ruled a site that helps people find roommates can’t ask for the user’s sexual orientation.

By bloody time, I say.

Although the person should probably be wary of the reaction of someone they’re potentially going to room with (do you really wanted to be smothered in your sleep?), it’s great that they don’t have to be discriminated against before they’ve even had the chance to check out the place (and the person).

We seriously need to up our game when fighting discriminatory attitudes. Thumbs up for these judges.
