I think the solution to the gaystapo and other socialist justice wankers can be found in a law school lesson I learned many years ago:
A black social justice warrior attorney applied to rent an apartment from a landlord who was reputed to illegally reject applications from minorities. Sure enough, her application was rejected. The social justice government grant funded law firm sued the landlord, with its star witness: the unimpeachable black social justice warrior attorney. Following the devastating testimony of the black social justice warrior attorney as to her status as both a woman and a black person, the landlord took the stand to testify in his own defense. When asked why he rejected the black social justice warrior attorney's rental application, the landlord replied, "Because she's a lawyer. I don't rent to no lawyers. They're nothing but trouble."
Verdict for the defendant landlord. Attorneys may be a minority, but are not a protected class under the law.
Lesson for those whom the state presses into service for repugnant acts:
"Anyone who hates another person because of his race, his religion or his sexual proclivity, is just being lazy, because, with just the slightest effort, you can usually find a far better reason to despise him." --Burt Prelutsky
I would only change the words "despise him" to "send him packing."
I don't advocate hate of any peaceful group or individuals, only that free people get more creative in defending their 1st Amendment right to freedom of association from a government and militant libtards.
Sorry about the length of the post.

Interesting. Where does the state stand on Confederate flag cakes, I wonder? (/sarc)
