Wow: When Barry Met Kathy
Not content with the numerous websites offering to match him with a male partner, a gay New Jersey man sued eHarmony, a dating service catering to Christians, because it would not match him with a male partner.
I guess maybe I should sue to make sure they provide services for Jews. And while I’m at it, maybe we’ll have a Christian sue Jdate, “The Leading Jewish Singles Network.”
This is nothing more than a nuisance lawsuit. He just felt hurt because a website offered dating services for heterosexuals, but not for him. His plea for equality has succeeded. With the help of the New Jersey Attorney General, he forced eHarmony to settle.* It will now offer a companion site for same-sex matches.
Dr. Melissa Clouthier adds:
The solution to these lawsuits is simple: Start going after every “Rainbow” (aka monochromatic) coalition and force diversity. Gay resort? Sue â€˜em. Gay only hotel? Sue â€˜em. Gay porn website? Sue â€˜em. If they don’t have services, you know soft-focused Christian interludes, spas, hotels, etc., they’re not being diverse.
I’m not so sure that even then that the “equal ‘rights’ by any means necessary” crowd would get the point.
