    Might as well let people send workers home for being black.
    A very liberal debate method... accusations. Pretty pathetic.

    Slippery Slope but where does it stop? Prayer mats for Muslims or Burkhas? Poisenous snakes for the religious cults?

    A dress code that is reasonable and fair in now way hinders anybody's rights. This whole argument is absolutely stupid. Those making it out to be discrimination and oppression are off their rocker.

    Fundamental disagreement here. I say the owner of a private business does get to make the rules. There is no obligation to society. (other than to provide a safe business that does not intentionall harm or deceive people... we leave that up to the government to do) But as for dress code and what people they wish to serve and all, let them do what they want to do. If the rules are so restrictive no one wants to work there, the business goes down. If the service sucks and the business caters to so few that there is not enough people to make a profit, the business goes down. If YOU do not like the rules and the business, just don't go there and do any business with them.

    In regards to what actually happened and this specific thread, no it is not a good point.

    What about a religious woman don't you understand? You think she's wearing a short skirt? If how oil spills on your legs, long pants won't do very much at all to protect you. That oil is hundreds of degrees.
